Genoa, Nev. — Tahoe Douglas medics, Douglas deputies and Nevada State Police troopers responded to a 6:40 a.m. report of a vehicle into a guardrail a mile north of Cave Rock. One person was transported. Traffic cameras show the highways in the mountains are wet, but there aren’t any road controls in place.

County commissioners approved purchasing a parcel for a drainage basin in the Pine Nut Creek drainage near East Valley and Fish Springs roads. The natural drainage is apparently starting to encroach on the neighboring parcels, which might be explain why the neighbors were in favor.

County commissioners stopped just short of going to the podium and giving Kathy Lewis a big welcome back hug on Thursday. They approved her appointment as auditor and comptroller.
