Just received this from NDOT. It is a call for ideas on projects the community might think are needed. At the bottom of the post is a link to the flyer they sent with it-editor.
Good Afternoon All,
I would like to invite you to apply for the Statewide Call for Projects for 2013-2014 Transportation Alternatives Program. I have included a list of eligible activities and a link that provides the application and more information about the program. Please note that pre-applications are due by May 1st.

NDOT call for submissions 2013
We’ve noticed an abundance of fruit on trees in West Washoe and would like to see if the owners have an interest in allowing volunteers to harvest some of it so it can be donated to organizations like F. I. S. H. in Carson City.
I’ve attached a flyer with our contact information.
Thank you very much.
Editor’s Note: We have seen the same thing over here on the east side. Many trees have abundant fruit and even our fledgling apple trees! This sounds like a great idea.
We recently received this question:
“Does anyone know why there are so many dead fish on the beach at Washoe Lake?”
We received this info from State Parks:
“According to the fisheries biologist from the Department of Wildife the fish are dying off due to the low lake levels and warm water temperatures. The fish are basically oxygen starved. Wildlife says there are too many fish competing for oxygen in too small a space. The small fish on the beach are Sacramento Perch. We are trying to pick the dead ones up the birds don’t eat and dispose of them.”

I suspect as the lake evaporates, this will continue- ed.
