The R-C Morning Report for Aug. 12

County Manager Jim Nichols will be joining us on the blog at 10:30 a.m. today. Send your questions to to have them posted.

Minden’s working on Sixth Street between Esmeralda and Mono avenues. They had it blocked off on Tuesday. From what I could see they, they’ll be at it again today.

I heard that someone thought the old Mill silos were gone. They’re not, nor are they slated to be. The silos will be cut open on the inside to make big space instead of four smaller ones. That’s where the whisky distillery will be. Bently Heritage will be taking down the corrugated metal from around the building.

Appeals Judge Michael Gibbons will be at the Douglas County Republican Women’s luncheon today at the Carson Valley Inn in Minden. Lunch starts 11:30 a.m. Cost is $25 at the door.

If you’re going to do something outdoors besides fly a kite, plan to do it today, because it’s going to be pretty windy on Thursday. National Weather Service Forecasters have issued a fire weather watch for strong winds and low humidity. Expect southwest winds 35-40 mph on Thursday afternoon. Don’t be surprised if the red flag goes up on Thursday.

Expect sunny skies with a high of 89 degrees and the wind 5-10 mph today. The zephyr wakes up at 5 p.m., but will go back to sleep around 10 p.m.
