The Rim Fire outside of Yosemite, now at 253,332 acres, remains at 80 percent containment with an estimated full containment date set for Sept. 20.

However, as you can see by looking out your window, Carson Valley skies remain clear for essentially the fourth consecutive day. Air Quality in the Valley floated between good to moderate all night and, as of 5 a.m. today,  registered at 52 (or moderate).

The National Weather Service is projecting sunny, clear skies all week with highs in the high 80s and overnight lows in the low 50s.

Valley ER doctor Noah Kaufman will appear on the national finals Stage 2 episode of American Ninja Warrior tonight at 9 p.m.

Also on our site this morning, you’ll find a story and photos from Valley resident Chris Dickerson, who is crew chief for Madness No. 87 in this week’s Reno Air Races formula 1 class.

Congratulations to the Douglas girls cross country team, who emerged from a deep field of teams at the Nevada Twilight Invitational in Sparks Saturday night to win first place.

The Douglas volleyball team went 6-1 at the Yerington Invitational. And we are awaiting scores from the Douglas soccer games at Reed.
