Staff Reports

GARDNERVILLE, Nev. — The Tahoe Douglas Bomb Squad was called to the Minden Starbucks Sunday evening on reports of a suspicious package.

We have a note in with Douglas County Sheriff’s Office on the call, but initial reports are that it was determined to be a laptop computer in a bag, which was returned to its owner.

Douglas County is on a Flash Flood Watch again today, this time from noon to 9 p.m. as localized heavy rain and slow-moving thunderstorms are in the forecast. This could lead to flash flooding of small creeks, streams and drainage area. Douglas County Emergency Services responded to calls of flash flooding and water over the roadway on Friday and Saturday.

The high today should be 88 degrees with storms materializing after 11 a.m. Thunderstorms remain in the forecast every day this week as well.

As of Sunday evening, the Washington Fire south of Markleeville was listed at 99 percent containment with remaining personnel at 159.

We will be opening up the nomination round in our search for Carson Valley’s Signature Dessert this morning. It’s a quick turnaround from our Salad Wars, which was won by Abby Jo’s Café Girasole, because we’d had to delay the finals for that a week due to the Washington Fire.

Douglas baseball hosts Spanish Springs in summer league baseball action at 4 p.m. today.

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