The R-C Morning Report for Dec. 2

Genoa, Nev. — Main Street Gardnerville is saying farewell to director Paula Lochridge. It has been nearly seven years since she gave up the Woody and Paula Wake-up Show on K-Bull to become the first director of the first Main Street Program in Nevada in 2009.

There were a lot of farewells at the county commission meeting on Thursday with East Fork Fire District bidding farewell to the county in preparation for its independence, and commissioners bidding farewell to Doug Johnson and Greg Lynn, whose terms expire at the end of the month.

With the Christmas season properly kicked off in Gardnerville, the holiday celebrations move to Minden and Genoa tonight. They happen pretty much at the same time after work, so you have to pick one. Genoans will pack the church singing carols. Minden will be lit up like … well, let’s just say there will be lots of lights.

With the wind chill, it will be right around 26 degrees tonight for the Minden gazebo lighting. The forecast for the Parade of Lights will be a tad balmier with 42 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

That 42 degrees will be warmer than it gets today under sunny skies. The high is expected to hit 40 degrees with the wind out of the east at 10 mph.
