The R-C Morning Report

by Kurt Hildebrand

Gardnerville Town Board members will be hearing from candidates to replace Robin Bernhard, who took a job in Las Vegas and left town. Gardnerville’s set aside 45 minutes to hear from candidates, so I’m betting they got more than a half-dozen candidates. After hearing from applicants, the town board will recommend someone for appointment to the remaining 10 months of Bernhard’s term to the county commission. Gardnerville meets at 4:30 p.m. today in the town hall at 1407 Highway 395.

Genoa Town Board members will discuss entering into a three-year contract with Pink House owner Gilles LaGourgue for Gilles Menagerie to be part of the town’s application for an outdoor event permit through 2014. Genoa meets 6:30 p.m. in the town hall.

The 26-year-old man who pointed a weapon at his father during a standoff over custody of his son is in district court this morning for sentencing. Matthew D. Aymami could be sentenced to anything from probation to five years in prison today. His sentencing was delayed a week.

Jacob Frank Wilcher, 21, who tried to kidnap an 11-year-old boy during an outdoor church class on Sept. 11, and Victor M. Mora Jr. who’s facing a molestation charge are also both in court today. Wilcher is undergoing psychological testing to determine if he is mentally ill. He pleaded guilty to a county of first-degree kidnapping. Mora, 28, waived his preliminary hearing in January and is facing a charge of lewdness with a child under the age of 14.

We may see some isolated showers between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. today, according to the National Weather Service. It’s a lot warmer out this morning than usual thanks to the cloud cover. The radar shows at least one band passed through already this morning. Doesn’t look like we got anything, though. The Mount Rose Highway and Geiger Grade both have snow controls this morning.
