Genoa, Nev. — One candidate is expected for today’s in-person interview for Douglas County Public Library Director 9 a.m. today at the Minden Branch, 1625 Library Lane. I expect library trustees will also discuss whether they want to have a second session for the candidate who couldn’t make it. There is no streaming, so if you want to know you have to go.

A meeting to review the Douglas County School District’s Strategic Plan kicks off at 8 a.m. Thursday in the CVIC Hall in Minden. School Board trustees take part in the committee but aren’t agendized to vote on anything. You can download a copy of the plan at

The Fallon Montanucci celebration of life will be live streamed starting 10 a.m. Friday on St. Gall Catholic Church’s web site. You can watch it at

This has been a rough couple of weeks across Carson Valley, and I know I find working in the garden soothing. Suicide Prevention Network and VitalBeeBuds Nursery are conducting a wellness cultivation event 5:30 p.m. today at Heritage Park Gardens. Find out more at

Shredding season kicks off 2-4:30 p.m. today with a free shred event at ABE Printing and Copy, 1679 Highway 395, in Minden. On Saturday, Intero Real Estate in Gardnerville is hosting a shred and e-cycling event to benefit Austin’s House 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. There will also be a blood drive. You can make a reservation for that at

The big show today will be the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Open House 4-7 p.m. at the Judicial & Law Enforcement Center in Minden. Sign up early for the jail tour, because there will be a line.

Chains or snow tires are being required on Highway 50 from Stateline north to Glenbrook and on 28 from the junction north to Sand Harbor. Rarely do road construction and weather restrictions combine as they have today.

A big load is scheduled to roll through Western Nevada today and Thursday, according to taking Highway 395 south and then across to Foothill. The state is listing Genoa Lane as the route west, but I wager they mean Muller Lane, since driving an oversized load through downtown Genoa doesn’t seem like a particularly good idea.

There’s a slight chance we’ll see some snow flurries today as cooler weather prevails. Expect a cool day, but warmer than Tuesday when it was 39 degrees at 12:30 p.m. We could see highs in the mid-80s by the weekend, so wait a bit, it’ll change.
