GARDNERVILLE, Nev., May 7, 2015 – Governor Brian Sandoval has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff today in conjunction with National Police Week and to honor the 128 Nevada Peace Officers who have been lost in the line of duty since 1861.

Also Wednesday, a large crowd attended the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Open House for tours of the jail, demonstrations of the local emergency services equipment and projects and some pretty amazing hot dogs.

On a housekeeping note, as you can see, we are in the middle of something of a remodel. We had to migrate the entire Carson Valley Times web site to a new host this week, and with nearly 4,000 posts and stories, it’s taking us a bit longer than anticipated. We appreciate your patience as we get the site back up and running and would welcome your feedback on the new look – though there is quite a bit of work to do before it begins to look like what we’re aiming for.

In the meantime, feel free to visit where you’ll find our full index of stories and the former look of the site (We’re aiming to get back as close to that look as possible with the new host).

On the weather front, we have some rain this morning (and even some snow in some areas). That’s expected to continue throughout the day and into tomorrow.

The plan is for the Douglas softball team to open the regional playoffs at Manogue at 12:30 this afternoon, but we’ll be keeping an eye out to see if the conditions affect that plan at all.

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