The R-C Morning Report

In order to bring the freshman class back to Douglas High School some modifications are going to have to be made, school board trustees learned on Tuesday night. Among those changes will be a larger commons and kitchen to feed the estimated 600 additional students, some place for them to take PE and most importantly classroom space. All of the changes presented could cost more than $43 million when completed.

Planning commissioners finalized the 15-year update to the Douglas County Master Plan on Tuesday by acknowledging county commissioners’ changes to the plan and approving a report as required by state law. Most of the changes dealt with Lake Tahoe transportation initiatives.

I wouldn’t recommend spending a lot of time shoveling snow this morning, since it should be clear by 10 a.m. and then the sun will come out and do it for you. Expect cloudy skies gradually becoming mostly sunny. The wind will be out of the north today at 10-15 mph, gusting to 25 mph.
