Genoa, Nev. — A Johnson Lane man was taken into custody on Monday night after a reported hit and run collision 6:30 p.m. led to a standoff at his home. The incident was over pretty quickly, and he was detained by 7:15 p.m.

Apparently, Gardnerville has been maintaining the lawn and irrigation in front of the Carson Valley Museum and Cultural Center essentially for free for the last 16 years. Town Manager Erik Nilssen is seeking guidance from the town board on whether to continue that or to shut it down after this year.

Also before the Gardnerville Town Board is a proposal to add a mural to the Gardnerville Station site welcoming people to Gardnerville. Town Board members meet 4:30 p.m. today at the town offices, 1477 Main St.

It’s going to be warm again today as a heat advisory continues through Wednesday evening. If you can’t stay cool, at least stay hydrated and out of the sun as much as possible. Minden-Tahoe Airport topped out at 99 degrees on Monday.

The chance for isolated showers increases 2-8 p.m. today and increases on Wednesday. The forecast is calling for 101 degrees today with the wind out of the southwest at 10-15 mph, gusting to 25 mph.
