Genoa, Nev. — Fourth time may be the charm in the continued sentencing of William C. Kirst, 34, who admitted taking more than $10,000 in property from his uncle, but is arguing that not everything he pawned belonged to the victim. Attorneys have been trying to sort out the case since November. Kirst faces up to 10 years in prison for grand larceny of a firearm.

On Monday, county commissioners approved a labor agreement with represented county employees that authorized a one-time payment of $1,027.60 to each employee and a 2 percent one-time payment to nonrepresented employees, which will cost taxpayers $441,000 total.

No snow days today for Douglas County students, though Lake Tahoe students will be picked up at their main bus stops.

It’s cold out this morning, which means any snowmelt that was on the road last night is ice this morning. Minden’s at 14 degrees out this morning. That’s balmy compared to Tuesday night’s forecast for 6 degrees.
