GARDNERVILLE, Nev., March 11, 2015 – The new owners of Silver Strike Lanes posted on the Minden/Gardnerville Community Blog Form on Facebook Tuesday to announce more news.

Stacey Winklepleck posted that Wink’s Silver Strike Lanes “pre-opening” is scheduled for April 1 at 11 a.m.

“We still have lots to do but we know we can have the bowling open by that date,” she wrote.

The bowling center, located in the Tillman Center in the Gardnerville Ranchos, closed down in October 2013. Winklepleck announced last week on Facebook that it would be re-opening in the near future.

The Douglas baseball team fell just a base hit short of at least tying up a close game against Damonte Ranch Tuesday afternoon, instead falling 10-8 with the bases loaded. You can view photos and more details from the game at this link.

In today’s weather, brought to you by Sierra Chef, the front end of whatever this weather system is going to be began to show up last night. Rain is likely (60 percent chance), according to the National Weather Service. Look for mostly cloudy skies, winds of 10 to 15 mph and eventually a high near 61 degrees. This won’t last long, with scattered showers expected to dissipate by 11 p.m. We’ll be back to clear skies by Thursday.

Sierra Chef’s next cooking class will be March 14 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Italian Hearts Pasta Sauces Kitchen, 1425 Industrial Way in Gardnerville. Chef Diane Weidinger of Heart Rock Herb & Spice is the guest instructor, covering spice blending for dishes such as Zucchini Feta Pancakes, Mini Beef Sliders, Honey Glazed Carrots and more. Ability level is for beginner adults (over 21) for the hands-on instructional session. Class size limit is 12 and cost is $75 per per person. To sign up for the class, visit this link.

BLM draft 3MARCH2015TileIn today’s Calendar, brought to you by the Bureau of Land Management, the Douglas County Public Library will host Toddler Storytime (18 months to 3 years old) at 10:30 a.m. today in Minden, 1625 Library Lane.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Carson City District will host a formal public hearing on its Carson City District Draft Resource Management Plan March 19 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Churchill County Commission Chambers in Fallon. Speakers will be required to sign in to speak. There will be a three (3) minute time limit for each speaker and a court reporter will be present to document all public comments. Public hearing comments will be incorporated into the official record and will be included in the final document. BLM managers and staff will be available from 5-5:45pm to interact with the public and answer questions.  The formal public hearing will begin at 6 p.m.

A busy front end of the week has left us with a long, long list of stories to try to get to today (our count right now is 20). We’ll chip away at it and see how far we get. In any event, look for some updates today – there should be plenty of them.

That’s a full lid for this morning. Take care out there and have a great day.
