GARDNERVILLE, Nev., February 25, 2015 – It was a tough afternoon for baseball in Northern Nevada in general as Western Nevada College announced it would discontinue its baseball and softball programs after the 2016 season Tuesday.
Several hours later, the University of Nevada was dealt its first loss of the young season, falling 6-5 to Stanford in Palo Alto in the final inning after leading 5-2 in the fifth.
Somewhat on the plus side, the Douglas High baseball team is organizing a Dugout Club in an effort to raise funds to replace the more than three-decade-old infield with an artificial Field turf surface more conducive to Northern Nevada’s spring weather whims. You can read more about that here.
Around town today, the Douglas County Public Library will host toddler story time (18 months to 3 years) at the Minden branch, 1625 Library Lane. Call 775-782-9841 or visit www.douglas.lib.nv.us for more information.
The Record-Courier reported Tuesday that Douglas County School District Superintendent Lisa Noonan has announced she will retire next fall. The school board of trustees has called a special meeting Tuesday, March 3 at 4:30 p.m. at the Administrative Services Building (1638 Mono Avenue Minden) to discuss the options, process and timeline for the replacement search.
In today’s weather, look for mostly sunny skies and a high of 59 degrees. The National Weather Service is ramping up expectations for this weekend’s storm, setting the chance of snow at 60 percent Friday night with potentially 1 to 2 inches of snow accumulation. Another inch could fall (50 percent chance) on Saturday and whatever we get should clear out by Sunday. We’ll continue to keep an eye on that as the weekend approaches.
We have, once again, a long list of stories we’re hoping to bring you at some point today. We’ll get to work on it and see how far we get.
That’s a full lid for this morning. Take care out there and have a great day.
