The RC Morning Report for Aug. 6

Gardnerville Town Board members will hear a report on the Eagle Gas Station at their regular meeting 4:30 p.m. today at their offices. Also on today’s agenda is a request by Golden Gate Petroleum to shrink the size of their station and add a carwash bay. The station is proposed for Grant Drive at the entrance to the Gardnerville Walmart.

Genoans are saying goodbye to Town Manager Sheryl Gonzales today at their regular meeting 6:30 p.m. at the town offices. Related to that, the town may enter into an agreement with Douglas County for management services over the next two months or until a new town manager is hired. They’ll also talk about the Genoa Cowboy Festival.

The continued arraignment of a Gardnerville man who tried to light himself on fire while a passenger in a vehicle on Highway 395 is scheduled for this morning. Richard Vonderscher is set to appear before District Judge Tod Young.

Is it me or did it get smoggier? The smoke plume isn’t showing much this morning, but there are a couple of fires upwind of us that could have delivered the drift smoke last night. In the meantime expect a chance of thundershowers starting at 11 a.m. with the wind out of the west at 5 mph becoming calm. The high today is forecast to hit 89 in Minden.
