The R-C Morning Report for Oct. 5

Genoa, Nev. — There’s a proposal to design and build a life-size bronze statue to Candy Dance Founder Lillian Virgin Finnegan to commemorate the event’s centennial in 2019. Genoa Town Board members will hear a request 6:30 p.m. tonight for preliminary approval.

Minden may change the time it meets to 4:30 p.m. on the first Wednesday of the month. The town is also considering creating a full time office specialist and eliminating a part-time position. Minden meets at 5:30 p.m. today.

A transportation master plan meeting set for Oct. 11 will have to be rescheduled due to a conflict with the Town Hall Debate sponsored by The R-C, Chamber and Business Council of Douglas County. A new time and location for the transportation meeting is forthcoming.

The Carson River basin saw 102 percent of average precipitation during the water year that ended on Sept. 30. The last third of the year was the second driest in 110 years since records started being kept for Minden.

Tomato growing season is pretty much over, as lows this morning hit 24 degrees in the central Valley. The good news, that freeze will make the apples nice and sweet. There are a few spots in the Valley that stopped at freezing, but not many.

Expect sunny skies and a high temperature of 61 degrees out. The wind will be out of the west at 5 mph, shifting to the north in the afternoon.
