Genoa, Nev. — The Douglas County Republican Central Committee is conducting a town hall 5 p.m. today at the CVIC Hall in Minden to review the 2021 Legislature. Speakers include Sen. James Settelmeyer, Assemblyman Jim Wheeler, County Manager Patrick Cates, Clerk-Treasurer Amy Burgans, Assessor Trent Tholen, Sheriff Dan Coverley, Undersheriff Ron Elges and Republican Party National Committeeman Jim DeGraffenreid.

Douglas County had a 4.5 percent unemployment rate, according to figures released by the state on Tuesday. The county had 1,023 jobless residents in May. That’s down a half-percent from April.

The full opening of the new McDonald’s in Minden doubled the workforce from 30 to 60 people, and representatives said they’re still hiring.

New Master Gardener Coordinator Jessica Gardner will discuss the importance of weed suppression 5:30 p.m. today at Heritage Park Community Gardens.

I apparently missed that a sliver of far southern Douglas County was included in Tuesday’s red flag warning, but it’s definitely clear today. There’s a chance we’ll see thunderstorms this afternoon, but a better chance on Thursday.

Today expect sunny skies to give way to isolated thunderstorms after 2 p.m. The high temperature should hit 87 degrees with the southwest wind blowing 15-20 mph, gusting to 30 mph.
