Genoa, Nev. — A young child was helicoptered to UC Davis’ burn center on Sunday after falling into a fire at a home near the Genoa Lakes Ranch Course. The report came in at around 4:30 p.m. and by 5:10 p.m. I don’t know precisely what happened, but it’s a reminder to keep an eye on children around fireplaces, firepits and woodstoves.
Members of the Water Conveyance Advisory Committee are scheduled to discuss the impact of Muller Lane Parkway on the irrigation facilities on the Park Ranch 4 p.m. today on the third floor of the Minden Inn.
Also occurring at 4 p.m. today is a virtual meeting of the China Spring Youth Camp Executive Committee, a body that I’m pretty sure I’ve never covered before. They’ll be discussing Wendy Garrison’s impending retirement. Visit www.douglascountynv.gov and click on agendas.
Besides the driver who ran over a fire hydrant at Minden Medical and a collision at Chichester and Gilman in Gardnerville, Parade of Lights night was fairly quiet. Mostly, just the usual things that occur when a bunch of people are trying to leave one place at the same time.
Both sittings of Breakfast with Santa in Genoa were sold out, which means there were 320 paying customers, but because little kids were free, that’s the low end. Carson Valley Middle School Leadership students helped Genoans with the annual fundraiser.
This week, Douglas Disposal and the townd of Minden and Gardnerville are picking up donations for Friday’s Drive-By Food Drive at the Carson Valley Inn. The Genoa Volunteer Fire Department is also soliciting donations. The food drive is 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and benefits the Carson Valley Community Food Closet.
Skies look clear this morning and should stay that way today and Tuesday before a little something something rolls in on Wednesday. The forecast calls for temperatures in the upper 50s today with a light breeze out of the north this afternoon.
