Justice Ruth Bader Ginzburg has passed away…

Governor Kate Brown Orders Flags Lowered to Half-Staff in Honor U.S. Supreme Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

(Salem, OR) — Governor Kate Brown ordered all flags at Oregon public institutions to be flown at half-staff immediately tonight, Friday September 18, 2020, for the death of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The flags will be at half-staff until the day of internment. Once that date has been established, we will send out another notification to advise when the flags will be returned to full-staff.

The White House issued a national flag-order.

Patricia won’t rest ’til the votes are in and she’s got an airline ticket to Washington DC to represent all of us….

Donald Trump’s campaign is making a mockery of COVID-19 safety, having indoor rallies and knocking on doors.

We’re putting the health of our community first by phone banking from home.

Sign up to make calls to flip Nevada’s 2nd District.

Or, donate here to help us GET OUT THE VOTE!

Donald Trump held a crowded rally in Patricia’s hometown, and has restarted dangerous indoor rallies around the country.
We care about our community. That’s why we were wearing masks and safely campaigning from home as Donald Trump spreads lies about mail-in voting.
Phones from home are THE MOST important way to get voters to return their ballots in this critical swing state.

Well we can’t knock on doors or call together an office, we’re staying connected.

Volunteers from around the nation phone banking together on Zoom — and it’s fun!
Ballots will go out soon in Nevada’s first ever Universal mail election.
Will you sign up for a phone bank shift today?
Thanks for standing up!
— Ackerman for Congress

League of Women Voters want everyone to get to know candidates for election in November

Election time can be very confusing for many voters because most political candidates don’t live next door to everybody else.  But we absolutely must become familiar with who they are and what they stand for.

Enter the League of Women Voters, an organization that’s been trying to reveal most, if not all, of the hopes and desires of those running for office and whether you agree with their positions – or not.  And having most, if not all, of the candidates starring at you right out of your own computer screen, it makes it a little less troublesome to observe the candidates front-and-center not to mention the ballot initiatives affecting our governments.

The League of Women Voters will be holding a series of “Candidates Forums” October 9th through 16th all starting at 6pm.  The forums are made possible by NGBN-TV and The Nevada Appeal newspaper.  Each forum will be broadcast LIVE on NGBN-TV at 6pm on October 9, 12, 13 and 16.

  • October 9th:  Assembly District 40
  • October 12th:  Carson City School Board Trustee
  • October 13th:  Statewide ballet issues, University Board of Regents, Recognize All Marriages, Pardons, Voter Rights and Energy.  This particular event was pre-recorded earlier in the month.
  • October 16th:  Congressional District 2
  • If you’d like to get lots of information on each candidate or what’s in ballot issue just go to the internet and look up www.vote411.org

 

Board of Supervisors pick McFadden Plaza for Farmer’s Market

Farmer’s Market crossing the street to its new home

Carson City Supervisors have selected McFadden Plaza to be the new home of the town’s Farmer’s Market, with a sizeable shade structure so the vegetables don’t cook in the high desert sun – also to enhance the comfort of shoppers who don’t want to get overly sunburned.

Supervisors weighed several locations including the market’s current spot of the Curry at Third Street parking area, as well as the Brewery Arts Center’s generous quantities of asphalt.

The Supervisors picked McFadden’s Plaza for it’s obvious visibility and exposure to passing motorists going up and down Carson Street and proximity to downtown shopping. 

The next step is to finalize the market layout and installation of a rather large shade structure.  Sadly, the veteran trees currently standing in the parking lot across from the McFadden Plaza at Curry and Third will be removed and replaced with more appropriate species of trees dotting the rejuvenated parking lot.

Acknowleding many long-stay motel rooms need fixing up – stricter enforcement of building codes

The Supervisors tackled the growing problem of treating motel rooms like apartments – a sizeable number of which are in less than perfect repair.  The Supervisors gave city Planning Director Lee Plemel marching orders to more strictly enforce the city’s building codes so that less than enthusiastic motel owners will bring their properties back up to where they once were years ago, or sell their properties to investors who will do the job.  No time-line on an improvement surge was mentioned.  But the Supervisors’ intent was clear.

Carson City “School Zones” now run from 7am to 4pm in Carson City

The Carson City School District has changed the rules of the road that go by Carson City Schools.  The school district and the School Board have agreed that two hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon don’t provide sufficient safety for school children and faculty.

The new rules now mandate school zone status from 7am to 4pm on school days.  In short, 15mph speed limits in school zones everyday there is school.  Weekends and periods where there is no school means that the normal speed limits remain – usually 25 mph.
