Genoa, Nev. — High Sierra Fellowship held its first services at the new church on Gilman Avenue in Gardnerville on Sunday. High Sierra’s former location at 1701 Lucerne has provided a new home for Carson Valley Bible Church helmed by Pastor Luke Wartgow. The congregation held its first services there on March 13.

The Minden Maverik is closed for renovation of the store, which apparently has been going on for a bit. I guess I should get out more. Meanwhile, the new Minden McDonald’s is going up in a hurry.

Flags are at half-staff for the mass shootings in Atlanta and Boulder. Our deepest condolences to the victims and their families.

It’s going to be a couple of years before a proposed 25-cent increase in the county’s 911 service charge is implemented, if at all. The 911 Service Charge Advisory Committee discussed its budget and funding on Tuesday.

Spring is when a public body’s attention turns to budgets and the Library Board of Trustees is no exception as they meet 10 a.m. Wednesday. Douglas County commissioners have three days set aside to wade through the budget April 6-8.

Today’s forecast calls for mostly sunny skies and a high temperature near 56 degrees and the wind out of the south at 5 mph. There may be another burst of weather on Thursday.
