Genoa, Nev. — I’ve heard some Douglas County voters think they can only vote for the commissioner who lives in their district. That’s not true. If an office appears on your ballot, then you can vote in that race, according to Clerk-Treasurer Amy Burgans.

Polling machines will be available for in-person voting at the Douglas County Community & Senior Center 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. Early voting will continue until June 7 before Election Day on June 11.

There will be a lot of activity around Eastside Memorial Park this morning accompanying the Moving Wall opening ceremony at 10 a.m. A National Guard Blackhawk helicopter is flying in around 9:20 a.m. and a World War II Stearman biplane will be doing a flyover.

Reach for Joy’s 4th annual Veterans Appreciation BBQ is 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday at High Sierra Fellowship, 1250 Gilman Ave., Gardnerville.

The Fredericksburg Cemetery cleanup Day is 8-11 a.m. Saturday. Bring a rake, clippers, shovel, trash bags, plus a hat, gloves, and water. A dumpster will be provided by the Cemetery Association.

If you still feel like working the land, Douglas High School and Carson Valley FFA are conducting a plant sale 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and June 1-2 at the Douglas High School Greenhouse. They don’t take credit cards, so bring your cash.

It clouded up some last night, with Double Spring recording .05 inches of rain around 9 p.m. Thursday. The forecast high today is 70 degrees under partly sunny skies. The zephyr will turn up this afternoon out of the west at 10-15 mph, gusting to 25 mph.
