Genoa, Nev. — Flu clinics head into the mountains today with Douglas conducting one of at Kahle Community Center 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Alpine heading to Bear Valley 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There was a pretty good line at the community center on Wednesday. You can get a flu shot and a coronavirus chaser on Saturday at Douglas High School. Bring your insurance card.


A wreck snarled the commute at Highway 395 and Buckeye Road 4:50 p.m. Wednesday. One person was transported to Carson Valley Medical Center for treatment, from what I heard on the scanner.


The Bently Family is seeking to split a 90-acre parcel in upper Fish Springs into four, including a 5-, 7-, and two 40-acre parcels 2 p.m. today at the Douglas County Administrative Hearing Panel. You can find out more by visiting the county’s web site and clicking agendas and meetings.


With the Tahoe Fire & Fuels Team preparing to start prescribed burns in November it might not hurt to have a refresher. Today’s Living with Fire session at 11:30 a.m. will discuss proposed burns in the Tahoe Basin and Western Nevada. Sign up at bit.ly/RxFireTahoeNV.



So, it might actually be sunny today with a high temperature of 58 degrees. Expect the wind to be out of the north at 5 mph this afternoon. The low on Friday is expected to hit 24 degrees.
