Genoa, Nev. — A significant portion of Ruhenstroth’s population turned out to offer their input on a proposal to install RV stalls at three county locations, including the Fairgrounds. I counted 60 people at the Douglas County Community & Senior Center for the meeting. Community Services Director Scott Morgan assured the crowd that Tuesday night was the first of many steps and that the county walks pretty slow when it comes to these proposals.

Among the ancillary news items to come out of the meeting was that the county is going out to bid to replace the old lights at the Fairgrounds and the county’s looking to fence the disc golf course. Also, the ATV traffic might just be starting to get on people’s nerves.

Vacation Home Rental opponents are expected to turn out to today’s advisory panel meeting at the Tahoe-Douglas Fire Protection District offices. They’ve got a couple of Tier 3 permits to discuss and an appeal of a denial. They meet 1 p.m. at 193 Elks Point Road.

It sounds like Highway 89 will be more open to Markleeville overnight? The release is a little confusing, but what’s certain is that crews will be working 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and then perhaps the road will be open at 6 p.m. From my experience last Friday, you’re not looking at more than a short delay even when a lane is closed.

Wind Down Wednesday is 4-8 p.m. at Heritage Park in Gardnerville. The food trucks and live music will be back.

If you’re of a more botanical bent, Jessica Gardner (best name for a horticulturalist, ever) will be showing folks how to divide iris at the Dangberg Historical Home Ranch 5:30 p.m. today. Dividing perennials is next Wednesday at Heritage Park.

The high temperature hit 97 degrees at Minden-Tahoe Airport on Tuesday afternoon, but even that wasn’t enough to crack 2020’s 98-degree record. The record for today was 100 degrees set in 1931.

It won’t be near that hot today with a forecast high of 95 degrees and the wind 10-15 mph out of the southwest gusting to 25 mph this afternoon.
