Genoa, Nev. — There was a lot to unpack from Thursday’s school board meeting, but it appears Interim Superintendent Jeannie Dwyer will get first right of refusal in May for the top slot. Should she and the board not be able to come to an agreement, they would go back to the chalk board, according to R-C reporter Sarah Drinkwine, who was at the meeting.

A fire claimed a garage in Sunridge around 7:45 p.m. Thursday. There were pets in the home that were affected, though I don’t know whether any were lost as a result. That’s two garage fires in East Fork over the last six days.

Douglas County commissioners made it clear on Thursday that they oppose the Painted Rock Mine. What action they take besides the resolution may not be entirely apparent to residents, especially if it includes litigation.

Welcome All Veterans Everywhere bid a sad farewell during the presentation of a proclamation honoring their contributions on Thursday. Over the last decade, the group has done a lot to help veterans, but as with so many before, time and resources took a toll.

County commissioners selected the option for China Spring Youth Camp that had the least number of layoffs that will get it through the next year. The Legislature meets in 2025 and to be honest, that may help or make it worse.

With Easter next weekend, there are a half-dozen events occurring this Saturday, including the Main Street Spring Forum, an Easter learning experience at Trinity Lutheran, Ham Bingo at the Community Center and the Women in History Remembering Project. The R-C’s calendar has details on all that and more.

The Bee and Garden Conference buzzes into the Carson Valley Inn today through Sunday. Registration closed on Wednesday, according to the tickets site.

We might just see some snow on the daffodils on Saturday with a winter weather advisory at Lake Tahoe starting 2 p.m. today and lasting to 11 a.m. Saturday. There’s a storm warning for the West Slope with predictions of up to 4 feet for the High Sierra.

March’s lamb will yield back to the lion this weekend, but that’s mostly wind with some rain and a little snow. Rain isn’t expected until after 5 p.m. today with the snow level dropping to 4,900 feet after midnight. The south wind will pick up to 15-20 mph this afternoon, gusting to 30 mph.
