Genoa, Nev. — The Douglas County Clerk-Treasurer added 899 paper ballots to the results on Wednesday, which would bring turnout up to almost 55 percent, which is still less than 2014’s dismal 61.93 percent. It will require roughly 2,000 more ballots to reach that percentage.

It didn't appear to me that Wednesday’s results changed any races at either at the county or statewide. Any ballots with signature issues must be fixed today or Friday, so if you get a message from the Clerk-Treasurer’s Office, maybe don’t ignore it.

Friday is Veterans Day, which means the mail won’t be delivering ballots to the Clerk-Treasurer’s Office. They’ll still be working, but local, state and federal offices will be otherwise closed. We should see an update in results this afternoon.

U.S. Marines are celebrating their 247th birthday across the country today. One Marine who was at Khe Sahn, historian and author Mike Archer, will be speaking 6:30 p.m. today on the kidnapping of Frank Sinatra Jr. in 1963 at the Carson Valley Museum & Cultural Center in Gardnerville. Entrance is $5 for nonmembers.

The Gardnerville Maverik parcel map goes to the Douglas County Administrative Panel 2 p.m. today in the Minden Inn. A new design review is expected at Gardnerville Town Board next month.

Final snow tally as of Wednesday morning was 5 inches in Minden, which is as much as anything else in the Highway 395 corridor. The county seat reported .42 inches of moisture. That means .81 inches so far for November, which is ahead of average.

Heavenly got 11 inches of snow according to the telemetry peaking at 20 inches on Wednesday morning ahead of its Nov. 18 opening. Jeff Garvin reported 10 inches in Fredericksburg from the Election Day storm. I got a second-hand report of 3 inches in upper Johnson Lane, but otherwise it was pretty light out that way.

There might be some light snow on Saturday morning and maybe a little rain that afternoon, but I wouldn’t put money on it. Today expect a high temperature of 40 degrees with a light north breeze this afternoon. Veterans Day will be a little warmer.
