Good Morning, Carson Valley!

by Joey Crandall,

Good morning and welcome once again to the Carson Valley Times. We’ve noticed quite a few new readers over the past few days, so I just wanted to take a minute and re-introduce what we are doing.

What you’ll find here is largely a collection of features and stories about what makes our Valley what it is. Our focus is widely on human interest, history, community events, photography and so on. There will be news updates — our litmus test has been when the public safety is threatened, or your daily routine potentially affected (fires, smoke, traffic accidents & road closures) we’ll keep you informed to the best of our ability and follow those stories through.

More what you will find here is the story behind the story.   Our aim isn’t to be a comprehensive news source as much as it is to be a community hub of information. Where is the best place to go on a hike? What does C.V.I.C. stand for (Carson Valley Improvement Club)?  What’s the story behind that building? Our goal, over time, is to create a complex, living document that to the best of its ability defines our Valley. There will be information that pertains to what’s going on now. And there will be information that’ll be here when you need it.

When you have a question, ask it! I love chasing down the answers. That’s specifically what our Valleypedia section is built for.

For everyone visiting for the first time, take a look round. Let us know what else you’d like to see. Feel free to point out what you don’t like. This is a new endeavor, and it is largely moldable to the reader’s interests. I can be reached at

On with today’s news roundup: We posted our 2013 Northern Nevada Football Preview Monday evening. It’s got capsules for all of the Northern Division I teams, along with schedules and players to watch. You can view it all at this link.

Around town today, the Lampe Park Farmers Market is going on through 1 p.m.

And wildlife biologist, Jenni Jeffers, at Mormon Station State Historic Park for an owl release following a presentation at 7:30 p.m. No photography or dogs allowed. I’d guess it’d probably be smart not to bring your field mouse either. Information, 775-775-782-2590.

Douglas County Manager Steve Mokrohisky is on The Record-Courier’s Running Commentary this morning for an hour-long Q&A session starting at 10:30 a.m. If you’re interested in this community, this is a wonderful resource to see what is going on, and also to ask your own questions. I highly recommend it. You can get there at this link.

Finally, for today’s weather, look for clear skies with a high of 91 – which is basically what we are looking at every day through next Tuesday.
