Genoa, Nev. — If there’s one reason to go to the Business Showcase, it’s to get your Carson Valley Days button as hot off the press as anything else these days. Ron Santi said he’d just received the order and was doing a rousing business on Thursday.
Speaking of hot off presses, the Carson Valley Almanac hits the streets on Saturday. While Carson Valley Days will be all about tropical breezes this year, there’s an awful lot of weather in the magazine. I expect it will be inside the combo edition with the Nevada Appeal.
Commissioners approved the festival permit for Carson Valley Days on Thursday, which is June 8-11 this year. The parade is June 10.
Lake Tahoe resident Glen Wolfson joins the Vacation Home Rental committee after being appointed by Douglas County commissioners on Thursday.
Commissioners approved a $145,000 with CORE Construction for work on the Douglas County Judicial Center project off Buckeye Road.
A vehicle struck a boulder near Glenbrook Canyon on Highway 50 around 7:30 p.m. Thursday. As the thaw continues, expect more of that on mountain roads.
St. Gall Catholic Church’s annual spring rummage sale is 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. today and Saturday and I bet there’s already a bunch of shoppers parked along Centerville this morning.
Spring Fling, the replacement event for the Mardi Gras event that Young at Heart cancelled when the weather went nuts, is 6-8 p.m. tonight. If you bought tickets for Mardi Gras, they’re still good. Otherwise, you have to get them from the Senior Center if there are any available.
Saturday is the prescription drug roundup at the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office in Minden, East Fork Station 4 in Topaz Ranch Estates and the Roundhill Safeway in Zephyr Cove. If you’ve got prescription drugs you’re not using, this is a safe way to dispose of them.
Saturday is Earth Day and Heritage Park Gardens will be hosting a workday 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The library will be hosting a movie at 10:30 a.m. It’s going to be a busy weekend, so grab a copy of The R-C’s Calendar, on stands now. Only a buck.
It’s odd going into a weekend without some weather statement or other warning of more weather, but the forecast looks pretty clear of precipitation through the next week.
There is a bit of cloudy weather in the forecast tonight and Saturday morning, but no rain. Today will be mostly sunny with a high near 69 and the wind out of the northwest at 5-10 mph. The clouds will keep it warm tonight and stick around on Saturday before clearing.
