The R-C Morning Report

by Kurt Hildebrand

Genoa restaurant owner Giles Lagourge is raising money to have chimes installed at the town church. The story is that he heard the chimes in Carson City and decided that would be a good addition in Nevada’s oldest town. Cost of the electronic system was estimated at $3,800 by resident Sue Knight.

Like the child replacing the wizened oldtimer, the new Minden Town Board starts work tonight. Fortunately, Minden’s voters chose some longtime residents to work on the board, so the transition shouldn’t be too difficult. Minden meets at 5:30 p.m. Among other things the town board will be discussing a contract with the county to wholesale water to Ruhenstroth and Sunrise Estates.

The Pogonip was already rising along the sloughs when I drove home last night. There’s no reason to believe that there won’t be more this morning. It’s 4 degrees in Minden and 14 degrees in Fish Springs this morning. Once the fog dissipates, we’re looking at clear skies with a high near 35 degrees.
