The R-C Morning Report for Aug. 14

Genoa, Nev. — There will be some Splash Dogs action in Gardnerville’s Heritage Park this afternoon, and the annual Crab Feed at Jethro’s is tonight. On Saturday, the 20th Antique Tractor Show kicks off. Saturday will also see a Color Run and Health Fair at Carson Valley Medical Center. For more on these events, pick up today’s edition of The Record-Courier and check out the calendar.

It looks like the Minden Sonic will be opening as soon as next week. Mark Cain, who owns this restaurant and the Carson restaurant has obtained a fictitious business name, Douglas County’s version of obtaining a business license.

There weren’t any new major fires reported on the Sierra Front, and a fence fire over on Sawmill was kept to around 20 feet across. The Eagle 2 fire was sheltered from the wind and firefighters have it at 3 percent contained.

It wasn’t all that breezy a night last night, with the wind dying down around 9 p.m. around the Valley. I see a couple of gusts of nearly 40 mph around 3 p.m. The red flag warning continues until 11 a.m. today, which is also when the wind’s supposed to pick up again. Expect hazy skies this morning with a high today of 90.
