Genoa, Nev. — An effort to encourage additional applicants for nomination to the lay member of the TRPA advisory planning commission netted two, including former Kingsbury General Improvement District board member Natalie Yanish and veterinarian Staci S. Baker, along with current member Garth Alling. Alling, a professional biologist, has served on the board since 2017.

A $71,000 contract with a consultant M3 Planning is being proposed to aid the county’s strategic plan update. County Manager Jenifer Davidson is seeking to increase the plan expenditures from $35,000 to $80,000. Commissioners meet 10 a.m. at the Douglas County Courthouse, 1616 Eighth St., in Minden.

Main Street Gardnerville’s third Thursday wine walk is 4:30-7:30 p.m. today in beautiful downtown Gardnerville. Tickets are available at Big Daddy’s and Gardnerville Station.

Tropical Storm Hilary, which is currently off the Baja coast could bring some moisture Sunday through Tuesday to Western Nevada, according to the National Weather Service.

Fredericksburg resident Jeff Garvin reports .03 inches of rain from an overnight thunderstorm. That was pretty much par for the course, though it’s quite humid out this morning.

Scattered showers and thundershowers are in the forecast through the next week. Partly sunny skies and a high near 88 degrees are predicted for today with the wind out of the southwest at 5-10 mph this afternoon.

My first bylines in The Record-Courier appeared on Aug. 17, 1989, 34 years ago today. I wrote up a fatal collision, a con artist who managed to get three businesses to hand him money and a fight at the Ranchos sandpit that saw seven arrests. I’ve spent more than two-thirds of that time working in Carson Valley.
