The R-C Morning Report for March 18

Genoa, Nev. — Today is the last day of filing for political office in Douglas County and in Nevada. The Clerk-Treasurer’s Office had two people file on Thursday for Lake Tahoe districts. We’re down to three districts with no candidates, including Oliver Park, Sierra Estates and Zephyr Knolls general improvement districts.

Commissioners agreed to serve as a pass-through for $99,000 in state economic development catalyst funds for Bently Heritage to create up to a dozen jobs at its distillery, which they hope to have open by the end of 2017.

For the first time in a long time, Douglas County and much of Western Nevada is out of exceptional drought. Now it’s just in extreme drought.

There will be dancing across the Valley tonight as Mr. DHS and Gotta Dance. Tickets for the Suicide Prevention of Douglas County fundraiser sold out on Monday, but you can donate or vote at http://www.spnawareness.org/contestants—voting.html. Doors open at Mr. DHS at the CVIC Hall at 6 p.m. The students are raising money for Safe Grad Night.

This weekend will be nice right up to the point where the wind picks up around lunchtime on Sunday. There’s a chance of a shower or two on Sunday evening, and then a chance of snow returns on Tuesday.

Today will be way too nice to be a workday. Expect sunny skies and a high temperature of 70 degrees, both today and Sturday.
