The R-C Morning Report for June 14

A third red flag warning in six days has been issued for the Sierra Front by the National Weather Service for critical fire danger. The warning will last until 7 p.m. today.

There’s a myth that Election Day is really busy in a newsroom, but it’s basically pretty boring until Election Night, when results start pouring in. R-C staffers will be out at the polls today and we’ll be online tonight with results.

The polls open at 7 a.m. today and will close at 7 p.m. Typically, early voting numbers telegraph how many folks will show up on Election Day, but I’m hoping for a better turnout. Remember you have to go to the polling place for your precinct today.

Revisions to a 140-unit senior complex project at Kimmerling and Bing roads will go before Douglas County planning commissioners 1 p.m. today in the historic courthouse, 1616 Eighth St. The proposal would increase single family units on the property from 59 to 81 and eliminate the senior complex.

Today will be sunny and cool, with the wind out of the southwest at 10-15 mph increasing to 20-25 mph with 40 mph gusts in the afternoon. Expect the high temperature to hit 74.
