The Oct. 23 R-C Morning Report


Four-thousand Douglas County registered voters have cast a ballot so far in this election. We’ve had 2,063 early voters and 1,939 people turn in their mail-in ballots.


Early voting continues at the Douglas County Courthouse 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and will be in Fish Springs 1-5 p.m. today and Sundridge 1-5 p.m. Wednesday.


I hear open burning has it smoky in the Valley this week. Firefighter investigators will be training at Minden-Tahoe Airport today and Wednesday, setting a few of their own backyard fires in the process.


On Saturday, the River Fork Ranch in Genoa is hosting a preserve community day and celebration 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. if you’re Nevada Day’d out, like that’s a possibility.

The Ranch is located off Genoa Lane at the big yellow house, and yep. It’s at the river’s fork.


I bought three Mega Millions tickets on Monday, because “A billion dollars,” so why not blow $6 and join the fun.


Sounds like it’s going to be a little breezy in the Valley this afternoon, with the wind picking up out of the west at 5-10 mph, gusting to 20 mph. Otherwise expect sunny skies and a high temperature of 68 degrees.
