Genoa, Nev. — Members of the Douglas County Republican Central Committee are participating in a “Voter Registration Valentine’s Day” today. They’re going to be walking the streets and visiting businesses to raise awareness about registrations in the county.
You can check your registration at www.nvsos.gov/votersearch/ I checked mine this morning and everything was as it should be. Also I had a peek at my voting history, which confirmed I’ve voted in every election over the last dozen years.
A dryer fire at the Gardnerville Laundry caused a little excitement in downtown on Saturday afternoon. Called out at around 3:45 p.m., the fire was limited to the appliance and didn’t spread to the structure, according to East Fork firefighters.
A helmetless skier hit a tree on Sunday afternoon. Tahoe Douglas firefighters waved off the helicopter and transported him to Barton for medical treatment, which is a good sign. We’re having as many injuries on the slopes as on the roads in this past week.
Procedures for the volunteer program is on the agenda for the Douglas County Senior Services and Public Transit Advisory Board is 8:15 a.m. today at the Douglas County Community & Senior Center’s CVMC Conference Room.
Mother nature will blow us a kiss for Valentine’s Day as the first storm front in seven weeks makes its way into Western Nevada. The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory 1 p.m. today to 1 a.m. Tuesday, to be followed by a chance of rain.
While the forecast calls for mostly cloudy skies this morning, it looks pretty clear out to me. The high is supposed to hit 62, with the wind out of the southeast at 5-10 mph, shifting to the southwest at 15-20 mph, with up to 30 mph gusts.
