The R-C Morning Report for March 9

Genoa, Nev. — Van Sickle Station will take a step back toward its original function as a way station after planning commissioners approved an application to make it a bed and breakfast for retreats and meetings. Built along the trail to California, the station was helping travelers before Nevada became a state.
