The R-C Morning Report: Candy Dance

by Kurt Hildebrand

As they have after so many Candy Dances in the past, Genoans voted Tuesday to pursue regulations that would only allow one festival permit under the town’s name. They also asked county commissioners not to approve any festival permits for the weekend of Candy Dance until they are ready to make a presentation to the county. According to Interim Town Manager Lisa Granahan, the county has received two competing permits for Candy Dance weekend already and they are scheduled to go before commissioners in February.

Meeting wraps up tonight with the Minden Town Board at 6 p.m. and the Gardnerville Ranchos at 7 p.m.

I didn’t get much in the way of information on Monday’s 5 p.m. accident at Johnson Lane and Highway 395. According to Trooper Chuck Allen, who talked to the investigator a northbound BMW traveling at a high rate of speed struck a pickup from behind so hard it broke the axle. The BMW then careened around until it landed in the opposing lanes where it was hit by a Honda. The driver of the Honda was helicoptered by Care Flight to Renown, where she was treated for Allen said were minor injuries and released.

The chance of rain on Friday is up to 30 percent, according to the National Weather Service. There might actually be some wind associated with this by Saturday when it is supposed to get up to 15 mph. As of 6 a.m. in Genoa the temperature is 26 degrees on its way to a beautiful day with a high temperature of 68 degrees
