The R-C Morning Report for Jan. 19

Genoa, Nev. — A man who brandished a knife at a Gardnerville Walmart security guard is facing sentencing today. Dylan Mitts, 24, wasn’t in court last week, but his attorney got a continuance until today. Also in court is Roy Peter Ricci, 28, who is accused of giving the term “quit in a huff” new meaning by allegedly burglarizing his former employer, trashing the place in the process of getting his last check, and then some.

The Douglas County School District is conducting a survey to determine how parents feel about a less traditional calendar. Students would start in mid-August and go until the first or second Thursday in June, with breaks in October, around Christmas and in spring. You can find the survey at http://dcsd.k12.nv.us

So far the atmospheric river has been more of a rivulet. About 2 inches of snow fell at Daggett Summit on Monday, and that fell in the morning. Down here, we got about a fifth of an inch of rain.

Today’s windstorm doesn’t seem like it will be much more productive. We’re supposed to receive a tenth of an inch of rain before 4 p.m. The high wind advisory is in effect from noon to 7 p.m. Expect winds out of the southwest at 20-30 mph, gusting to 45 mph. We could crack 50 degrees today.
