INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. - What a great community. I am so excited that one of our local readers won the scavenger hunt for soup crackers at Raley's. One more missing item located to help make my trip to Raley's a little easier. Seriously, it is now starting to shape up and looks like we are in for a treat once it is finished. Let's hope they move our community postings away from the cart area soon so that we can actually read what is posted! Thanks for making our community better.
