Genoa, Nev. — An in-person graduation for 2020 graduates of the University of Nevada, Reno, is 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. today, as the university begins four days of commencement ceremonies. The Class of 2021 starts receiving degrees on Thursday.
I spent an hour this morning going through the list of 33 Carson Valley residents who are getting their diplomas on Thursday. I spotted four who had birth announcements in The Record-Courier and a bunch of Tiger athletes. Congratulations to everyone.
Because the university only sends me the list of graduates who list their current address in Douglas, there may well be more that I don’t have. I also don’t have degrees in the list. I know there are a couple of graduate degrees in there. Anyone with a graduate, who isn’t listed, is welcome to send me an announcement.

The Douglas County Assessor’s Office is back online at http://assessor-search.douglasnv.us:1401/cgi-bin/asw100 Last night I clicked a button on it to research when and who donated the property for the Carson Valley Swim Center in 1986.
The county is looking for Tahoe Township residents to serve on the vacation home rental advisory committee. The rentals are only permitted at the Lake, hence the limitation. Click https://www.douglascountynv.gov/cms/one.aspx?portalid=12493103&pageid=17691095 for more information.
