Good Morning, Carson Valley

Posted By on August 6, 2013

The Aspen fire, burning in the Sierra National Forest at the Mammoth Pool Reservoir in California (between Fresno and Mammoth Lakes) will continue to give us a good dose of smoke today. The fire has burned more than 21,000 acres since it started during the lightning storm July 22. Steep terrain in the area has slowed containment of the fire.

The Minden Farmers Market is tonight at 4 p.m., running through the evening.

Douglas High School will host a drug & alcohol presentation at 6 p.m. in the school’s commons as part of its clearance process for athletic eligibility. For more information, call 775-782-5136, ext. 1868.

This will be more of a business day at CVT, but I do have stories on the junior rodeo and the Hot August Nights Poker Run set to post, plus whatever else comes in during the day.
