The R-C Morning Report for Oct. 7

Genoa, Nev. — The county wrapped up its bit of the Jobs Peak Ranch water system controversy on Thursday with the settlement of the five-year lawsuit with the homeowners association and the developer that went to the Nevada Supreme Court.

Anyone who's looked up over the past couple of days knows that it's burning season on public lands. The feds will be joining the party near Jobs Peak and up by Clear Creek, in addition to Woodfords. They're working as weather allows, so I don't have an exact date.

I'm not sure if there are still tickets left for Grace Christian Academy's Black & White Gala tonight at the Carson Valley Inn, but if you're interested, call 782-7811.

"Room for one more, honey," could be the motto for Saturday's Slaughterhouse Lane coffin races at Heritage Park 10 a.m. Saturday.

Monday is Columbus Day, which means a bank holiday and no mail that day, but not much else, since Nevadans traded it for Nevada Day quite some time ago.

Expect sunny skies and a high of 76 today in Carson valley. The wind will pick up out of the east at 5 mph this afternoon.
