Not quite so clear cut is the future of the governance of the China Spring Youth Camp. Apparently, there’s a separation of power issues with the county ordinance and it requires revision. While that’s all sorted out, Dr. Jenna Sexton will administer the camp.

Time to batten down the Christmas decorations before a wind advisory 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday. The advisory predicts southwest winds 20-30 mph gusting to 50 mph. It will be windier along the Highway 395-88 axis with gusts of 60-70 mph.

At a forecast 62 degrees under sunny skies, today is going to be the last nice one for a bit. The wind will pick up out of the northwest at 5 mph, according to the Weather Service.
