Genoa, Nev. — It will be December before the discussion of what to do with remaining funding from the federal ARPA funding returns to county commissioners. The county will have a year to allocate those funds after that, and there might be more than $719,000 in the pot to allocate.

While they were all on consent agenda, commissioners approved a contract with the state that will fund China Spring Youth Camp for the next two years. The state is ponying up $3.88 million to make that happen.

Robert Trumbly was selected to serve as the soaring member on the Airport Advisory Committee over the next six months.

Ronstadt Revival performs in Minden Park 6 p.m. today as part of the Bently Summer Concert Series. The chairs should start arriving this morning, followed by their owners later in the day.

After a very busy June that extended into the first week of July we might just get a bit of a break. The Sagebrush Rebels are performing in Genoa Park 5-7 p.m. Sunday. Stuff picks back up again next week with the Agricultural Fair in Gardnerville and the Death Ride in Markleeville.

After glaring at the river gauges and snow telemetry for the past six months, I think we’re close to seeing the rivers finally calm down. The East Fork is down to 12 feet this morning after cresting on Monday at 12.45 feet. The West Fork is out of the action stage and looks like it could stay that way.

There was a disabled vehicle on Highway 88 at Crystal Springs Road that lost a tire around 3:15 a.m. today. The tow truck was due around 5:30 a.m. so I expect that cleared shortly after a finished writing this.

Not a lot of change in the forecast with sunny skies and a high temperature near 88 degrees. The zephyr picks up to 10-15 mph this afternoon, gusting to up to 30 mph.
