Genoa, Nev. — I’m following up on a collision that occurred in downtown Gardnerville around 7 a.m. Wednesday that downed one of the town’s decorative light poles. While not nearly as spectacular as the Jeep in the river, it is a reminder to pay attention.

The state confirmed that a Holbrook Highlands resident shot a mountain lion last week that was posing a threat to him and his two dogs. NDOW asked me to remind people that mountain lions follow the deer herds and that they are out there, all the time.

A five-year contract with newly appointed County Manager Jenifer Davidson goes before Douglas County commissioners today. Davidson’s starting salary is $208,000 a year, according to the agenda. Commissioners meet 10 a.m. at the Douglas County Courthouse in Minden.

Commissioners are also scheduled to discuss the process to appoint a replacement for Tahoe Township Justice of the Peace Richard Glasson. Commissioners could call for a special election or ask staff to create a selection process. Glasson plans to hang up his robes on Oct. 5 after serving the entire first fifth of the 21st Century.

Republicans are hosting a town hall at the Douglas County Community & Senior Center 5 p.m. tonight to discuss the last legislative session, which wrapped up with approval of the A’s tax deal in Las Vegas.

Who knew a hockey team in the middle of the desert could win a national championship? Congratulations to the Golden Knights on their win on Tuesday, an organization owned by the new proprietor of High Sierra Distillery in Minden.

Some late cloudiness looked like it could bring more rain on Wednesday, but it was not to be. Today’s forecast calls for sunny skies and a high near 79 degrees. The wind is expected out of the north at 5-10 mph.
