The Sept. 12 R-C Morning Report

Genoa, Nev. — The R-C Web site has been a tad spotty lately. Bear with us while the IT folks hammer away at it. 

So the first month of student enrollment numbers are in and the Douglas School District is down 55 students to 5,800.  The district’s largest school, Douglas High, remained steady at 1,695 students.

While the Lake schools are down 25 students, the most interesting decrease is for the Ranchos elementary schools, which are down 59 students. Meanwhile, Pau-Wa-Lu Middle School is the biggest gain with 19 students. 

The Cruz’n Sierra Show & Shine at the Topaz Lodge kicks off with a barbecue tonight. They’ll be going through Friday and Saturday.

A fire weather watch has been issued for Sunday through Monday for gusty winds and low humidity as a strong cold front pushes through bringing 30-45 mph winds, though we might not see any of that until Monday. We’ll see as things get closer whether the Weather Service raises the red flag.

Today, expect sunny skies and a high temperature near 82 degrees. The wind will be out of the southeast at 5 mph.
