GARDNERVILLE, Nev., May 22, 2015 — Douglas High School’s 2014 twin sister valedictorians, Brizzia Munoz Robles and Maria Munoz Robles, wrote an incredible piece that appeared in The Washington Post this week with the completion of their first year at the University of Notre Dame.

The headline only begins to tell the story: “We were high school valedictorians, but we weren’t sure we’d make it to college, because we’re also undocumented immigrants.”

If you have about five minutes, it’s well worth the read. Here’s the link.

Speaking of the completion of the school year, Douglas High School’s annual Mountain Madness Powder Puff football game begins tonight at 6 p.m. Admission is $5.

Douglas baseball also opens its summer developmental season tonight at 5 p.m., hosting Spanish Springs.

The Douglas County Public Library opens its Spring Book Sale today at 1 p.m. (running through 5 p.m., continuing Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and concluding Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.) at the Douglas County Community & Senior Center, 1329 Waterloo Lane in Gardnerville. Thousands of used books and audio books will be for sale; DVDs and music CDs will also be available. Friends of the Douglas County Public Library and anyone who joins the Friends during the sale will receive a 15 percent discount.

 The National Weather Service has bumped today’s chance of rain up to 80 percent, with a high of 60 degrees and calm winds. In other words, nearly a carbon copy of every other day this week. There remains a chance of rain each day through the middle of next week, but things should start to clear up slightly Saturday or Sunday.

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