The R-C Morning Report for April 18

The R-C, the Carson Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Business Council of Douglas County are working on a May 8 political forum with candidates for Douglas County sheriff and Assembly District. I was told at the Business Showcase that we’re a go for the event at the CVIC Hall in Minden. Doors open at 5 p.m. The program kicks off at 6 p.m.

The Douglas County Liquor Board met on Thursday and approved four licenses. Among them was a on-site retail beer and wine license for Pizza Factory in the Ironwood Center in Minden, a packaged retail liquor license for the Target on Jacks Valley Road, a packaged retail liquor license for PJ’s Liquor and Fine Wine Shop in the Gardnerville Ranchos and an unrestricted on site retail liquor license and a caterer’s liquor license for Sierra Gourmet Grill & Wine Bar in Gardnerville.

Business Showcase was well attended on Thursday night, to the point where getting through the aisles was difficult an hour before closing, when I got there. Chamber Director Bill Chernock said he thought the attendance was similar to last year’s but that there was a steadier flow throughout the evening.

Today’s forecast calls for a chance of isolated thunderstorms starting at 11 a.m. and lasting through the day. Wind will be out of the east will turn southwest this afternoon. The Weather Service is predicting a cold low-pressure system will arrive on Tuesday with temperatures dropping 20 degrees and a chance of some snow in the mountains. They’re not expecting a hard freeze, which is good news for the apple crop.
