Three Things You Need to Know Today

  • The Lander County Commission meets the second and fourth Thursday of each month at 9 a.m. in the commission chambers at the courthouse. A full agenda can be found in the Community Resources section of this website.
  • Seen by many as the antidote to Valentine’s Day, the international day of the singleton may be a strange occasion to mark. But Satisfied Staying Single Day, or S3, is less about chasing a dream of happily-ever-after, and more about living life in the moment – a cause that even couples can embrace. And unlike St Valentine, with his cutesy satin hearts and overpriced roses, S3 remains reassuringly un-commercial.

  • The Winnemucca weather forecast for today through the weekend shows daytime highs reaching the low 60s. Battle Mountain stays a bit cooler, with a daytime high on Friday of 55, and despite sunny skies, only 52 on Saturday. Lovelock should see a high Friday of 64 and Saturday, 62.
