The R-C Morning Report for March 11

The first race for Douglas County commissioner developed on Thursday with Dave Nelson challenging Greg Lynn. This is a rematch from 2008, when Lynn defeated Nelson in the primary.

Three people are running for Genoa Town Board for the first time in a long time after resident Patricia Eckman filed along with appointees Linda Birdwell and Timothy DeTurk. Both Gardnerville and Minden have full slates of candidates, so anyone filing in either of those races will prompt a race. Filing continues through March 18.

Don’t forget to set your clocks ahead on Sunday, and maybe change the batteries in those smoke detectors.

Teens will be taking apart computers at the Douglas County Public Library for fun and education, while over at the Carson Valley Inn, the Arts Council will be hosting a murder mystery fundraiser. That’s just a sample of what’s going on this weekend and it’s all in The R-C’s handheld app, just 50 cents at newsstands across the Carson Valley.

It’s going to be a rainy Friday, according to the National Weather Service, with the possibility of a potent winter storm rolling in on Saturday. It seems like it will be a good weekend to get the taxes done, if the power stays on.

Expect around a tenth of an inch of rain through the day today, with blustery winds between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. No snow is forecast for Carson Valley, so don’t be surprised if it makes an appearance.
