An admitted Indian Hills meth dealer is facing up to 21 years in prison this morning. Gabriel Munoz, 37, pleaded guilty on May 8 to two counts of trafficking in methamphetamine stemming from a raid on his Indian Drive home on Jan. 19. Per a plea agreement, prosecutors are recommending Munoz receive a maximum of 12 and a half years in prison. Should the judge follow the recommendation, Munoz could serve as little as four years before being paroled.

Kingsbury Middle School goes on the block today, as members of the Douglas County School Board open bids, accept others from the floor and decide whether to let the school go. The appraised value of the property is $4 million. Under the agenda item, board members can’t accept a lower bid. If they don’t see one they like, they may continue the effort to sell the school. The school board meets starting at 3:30 p.m. at the Zephyr Cove Branch of the Douglas County Public Library.

The increasing daytime temperature might have something to do with it being summer. According to the National Weather Service, the high temperature today in Minden will tip-toe up to 98 degrees, which means it may cross the century mark in places in the Valley. That will be the first time this year. We’ll get closer on Wednesday and Thursday. The record high for today is 109 set in the 2002 heat wave.
