Genoa, Nev. — Graduation ceremonies continue 9 a.m. today at Western Nevada College for those students receiving professional and applied technology, nursing and allied health, and general studies. They’re using the drive-through model to deliver the degrees.

The Library Board of Trustees will discuss the five-year plan and the book lockers when they meet in person 10 a.m. today in the Library Meeting Room, 1625 Library Lane in Minden. The meeting won’t be livestreamed anywhere, so if you want to know, you’ll have to go.

I hear that Jakota Wass may be serenading the Esmeralda Farmers Market, which is 4-8 p.m. today in downtown Minden. The Main Street Farmers Market is 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday in Heritage Park, off Gilman Avenue.

I received word there was a small fire near East Valley and Chiquita around 9 p.m. Monday. It didn’t amount to much, as near as I can tell. There was also an open burning call down south on Monday. Backyard burning closed for the season in East Fork on May 16, though there may be some ag burning still permitted.

There’s a possibility that the eastern entrance to Yosemite will reopen on Thursday morning. Highway 120 through to Tuolumne Meadows has been closed since Nov. 5, 2020. Sonora and Ebbetts passes, closed for the weekend’s storm, reopened on Monday, according to the California Department of Transportation.

There’s nothing in the forecast that will close the passes this week, at least. Today expect partly sunny skies and a high temperature of 72 degrees. The wind’s going to pick up out of the west later this morning at 15-20 mph, gusting to 30 mph.
