Genoa, Nev. — The Nevada State Contractor’s Board will host a presentation 10 a.m. to noon today at the Douglas County Community & Senior Center about keeping seniors safe from construction scams.

Main Street Gardnerville is donating a 24.5-inch wide watercolor painted by La Vonne LaTulip Vasick to the town. The painting depicts downtown Gardnerville from around the turn of the 20th Century. Gardnerville Town Board members meet 4:30 p.m. today at the town offices, 1407 Main St.

The Douglas County Public Library’s Bookmobile is visiting the Esmeralda Avenue Farmers Market 4-6 p.m. tonight in downtown Minden. The big van is back on the road and making its rounds, which include Wednesday’s Sierra Chef Farmers Market in Heritage Park.

Down at the Minden Branch, the library is hosting a board game night for adults 4-6 p.m. as part of its adult summer reading program. Those turning up will get a summer reading raffle ticket.

So far, 4,831 voters have cast a ballot in the 2022 Primary Election. Most of those are paper ballots either returned in the mail or in person, with only 1,060 taking advantage of voting in person.

On Sunday, people said the turnout was light, so I decided to check. It appears we might actually be doing better than four years ago. I reported on June 6, 2018, that 3,533 voters had cast a ballot by now. The number of voters in person was far greater than absentee ballots.

I expect that the Carson Valley Days carnival will be setting up in Lampe Park today in preparation for its opening later this week.

It’s going to get warm this week, according to a statement issued by the National Weather Service. High temperatures are forecast to hit 94 degrees on Friday. We might see a rise on some creeks and streams from the last of the snowmelt.

Today, expect a high temperature of 87 degrees with the wind picking up out of the west at 10-15 mph, gusting to 25 mph this afternoon.
