Genoa, Nev. — A reduction in staffing at China Spring Youth Camp is going to be required to balance its budget. The camp’s advisory board meets 10:30 a.m. today to determine a course of action that will be forwarded to county commissioners at their Thursday meeting.

After seeing that the Topaz Ranch Estates General Improvement District is sitting on $1.34 million in cash and investments, I expect county commissioners won’t be any more interested in taking over the district today than they were in October. I could be surprised, but without the district’s agreement, it doesn’t seem likely.

The postponed discussion of the draft strategic plan will occur after 1:30 p.m. today, with the precise time depending on how long the Topaz Ranch Estates hearing goes.

A garage fire up in Johnson Lane late Saturday night reportedly claimed some classic cars. I’ve contacted the fire district to find out more about what happened.

One person was transported to Renown for medical treatment by East Fork Ambulance after a Ford sedan rolled over onto its side on Douglas Avenue between Cemetery and Centertowne around noon Saturday.

It sounded like no one opted for an ambulance ride in a three-vehicle rear-end collision on Highway 395 around 5:45 p.m. Saturday near Minden Meat & Deli.

A man in his 20s was helicoptered for treatment after receiving a receiving back and neck injuries on Sled Hill that was reported around 3 p.m. Saturday. At one point he lost consciousness, according to the emergency radio.

Today is the last full day of winter, so of course it’s going to be sunny and warm. Meteorological spring starts Tuesday night. The high temperature is forecast to be 65 degrees
