Today marks the end of a roughly 169-year tradition in Douglas County when commissioners officially abolish the office of East Fork Constable. Paul Gilbert has been in the office for nearly a quarter of that time. He will take judicial robes as East Fork Justice of the Peace, where he’s been a pro tem for decades.
Commissioners are scheduled to hear an update on plans to build a new courthouse and to renovate the Sheriff’s Office and other offices. The board meets 10 a.m. today at the historic Douglas County Courthouse, 1616 Eighth St., Minden. You can find out more at douglascountynv.gov
It rained last night with .05 inches recorded around 9 p.m. in Gardnerville. I saw .03 inches in my gauge in Genoa. A half-inch of rain fell near Grover Hot Springs on Wednesday night. We’ll find out today if that had any impact on the Highway 89 work.
The Main Street Thursday Wine Walk is 4:30-7:30 p.m. today in beautiful downtown Gardnerville. Tickets are available at Main Street Station or Big Daddy’s on either end of town.
The weather for today’s wine walk will be sunny with a high forecast to be around 90 degrees and the wind out of the west at 10-15 mph. It looks like we’re going to see the same weather through the week.
