Genoa, Nev. — The Stateline casinos brought in $15.5 million during November, a 2.92 percent decrease from the same month in 2016. So far, the main source of Douglas County’s gaming revenue is running 1.22 percent behind for the fiscal year.

Wednesday was the warmest Dec. 27 on record in a century with 62 degrees. That tied the previous record set in 1917. The bar for Dec. 28 is much higher, though, at 69 degrees set in 1998.
