The R-C Morning Report for Aug. 16

Genoa, Nev. — Today, Douglas County School Board trustees will determine whether to remove speech as a requirement for graduation. In February the district removed the requirement for schools with enrollment below 1,000, which pretty much left Douglas High on its own. The school board meets 3:30 p.m. at the Airport Training Center, 1126 Airport Road. Most of the good stuff doesn’t come up until after 4:30 p.m.

A Gardnerville Ranchos woman accused of forging prescriptions is scheduled to be arraigned in Douglas County District Court this morning. Sarah Kauffmann, 34, allegedly sought a diet drug known as “Diet Pink.”

The Shooting Fire on C Hill was contained at 250 acres. A couple of firefighters were stung by bees while battling the blaze. Just a reminder to be careful in the wildlands. That cheat grass is just looking for an excuse to burn.

There’s a chance we’ll see thunderstorms this afternoon, but until then expect sunny skies and a high temperature near 94 degrees. The wind will be out of the west at 5 mph, shifting to the east this afternoon.
