Look outside! It's the first snow of the year. Hopefully everyone's winter driving skills aren't too rusty. Be careful out there.
Here is the news summary for today:
- Carson City Board of Supervisors approved a resolution accepting $539,989 in funding for the Health Department to set up billing for immunizations. The money comes from the U.S. Center for Disease Control, and will be used to pay for one part-time and three full-time employees. They will be responsible for creating a strategic plan to implement billing within Nevada local health departments.
- The Board also approved funding allocations of approximately $1,975,106 to Douglas County and $1,625,422 to Washoe County from the voter-approved State Question 1 for the Tahoe Bike Path and allocated to Douglas County, Washoe County and Carson City.
- Those who remember the old Woody's Cafe on the south side of town will be happy to hear there will be a new restaurant in that location called the Red Hut Cafe, opening in December.

There are now three Red Hut Cafe locations in South Shore, plus an ice cream parlor.
- The Carson Senators (7-1, 7-0) play Reno High (6-3, 6-2) tonight at 7:30 p.m. in Carson. This is the final regular season game for the Senators, as they try to secure the top seed in the 4A playoffs.
- A man charged with accidentally killing his roommate in Brunswick Canyon has agreed to plead guilty to involuntary manslaughter. Anthony Kelich, 60, shot his roommate in the face with a rifle while they and one other man had been shooting at targets while drinking off of Sedge Road. Guns and alcohol don't mix.
