Attorney General Ford Releases Statement on 2021 Inauguration, Urges Unity 

Carson City, NV – Today, Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford released the following statement regarding the 2021 Inauguration:  

“I am thrilled to officially congratulate our 46th President of the United States Joe Biden and 49th Vice President Kamala Harris on being sworn in to office. Last year was rife with trials and tribulations. This year provides an opportunity toward recovery, change, and unity. 

Today’s peaceful transition of power, which is critical to our democracy, stands in contrast to events of recent weeks. But our Country persisted, and we just witnessed one of our most sacred traditions established to ensure that only the will of the people dictates our elected leadership. 

On Monday, we celebrated the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King, who famously said: ‘We need leaders not in love with money but in love with justice. Not in love with publicity but in love with humanity.’ At a time when family and friends are here one day and gone the next due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and neighbors are divided against each other, we pray for the President to lead with love, justice and humanity. 

We, too, must live our daily lives with love, justice and humanity, denouncing the spread of fear, hatred, and injustice. We must take care of each other during these challenging times. I encourage every individual to continue to wear their mask, receive the COVID-19 vaccine, and be kind to one another. The future of our nation depends on what we do right now, this year.” 

Supervisors’ appointments to various committees

The Carson City Board of Supervisors Thursday made appointments and re-appointments to several city committees, the supervisors exhibiting a marked preference for citizens who have served the city well.  Open Space committee veteran Donna Inversin won another term on the Open Space Committee with two others – both long time residents – Mark Kimbrough and Susan Martinovich.  All three endorsed the idea that the city’s subdivision construction rules might need some tweeking because as Carson City grows,  room for what was described as “McMansions” should not be allowed to gobble up land in areas that are obviously better used for open space.   The Supervisors appeared to go along with that scenario but with allowances that much smaller homes should be favorably viewed over larger homes.

Comments continued on a broader scale – that Carson City should encourage family friendly housing developments with easy access to hiking and bicycling trails.  There were comments that motorized dirt bikes should be restricted to areas that don’t disrupt neighborhoods or conflict with hikers and mountain bikers.   One such area is south of Prison Hill.  There were also comments that those who use the great outdoor for fun and recreation should be courteous and tolerant with others.

Mixed in with all the above, comments were made that Carson City’s abundant wildlands should remind recreational users that respect for the great outdoors and the people who love to be among them should be part of the rules.  Common Courtesy should prevail.

Other comments aimed at enhancing the quality of our outdoor experiences included more or improved trailheads, parking areas and bathrooms/outhouses.  It was apparent to the Supervisors that outdoor recreation is growing very quickly and methods to accommodate that growth should be considered  It was mentioned that Carson City is different from many other recreation areas is that the city has a unique tax aimed strictly at outdoor recreation which makes recreational improvements more likely to be built.  It was mentioned that as Carson City grows there arises more opportunities for inter-connected trails and pathways so no matter where you live in Carson City you’ll always have convenient access to an impressive network of nature-loving trails and bike paths.

Looking at candidates to fill vacancies on the city’s Redevelopment Advisory Committee it was Mary Kay Wagner, Court Cardinal, Gina Lopez and Andi Fant.  The topic of where Carson City’s Redevelopment energies should be applied lies with city’s Redevelopment Commission with final approval by the Board of Supervisors.  The key is creating economic engines throughout the Carson Street, William Street and other major business areas of town.

The supervisors resume their meeting after lunch.

CCARSON CITY SYMPHONY ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCES
RICHARD “RICKY” HUTTON
NEW DIRECTOR FOR CARSON CHAMBER SINGERS

Carson City Symphony Association is pleased to announce the appointment of Richard “Ricky” Hutton as Director of Carson Chamber Singers. His connection with the Carson Chamber Singers goes back to the summer of 2019, when he directed the Singers in the June Pops Party concert in Carson City and the July 4th concert in Genoa. During 2020, he also designed and produced two virtual performance projects with the group.

Hutton is in his fifth year as Choral Director at Spanish Springs High School, where he is the Fine Arts Department Chair. He served as an Interim Choral Director for the Reno Philharmonic Chorus, Artistic Director of the Reno Baroque Ensemble, and is the NMEA’s (Nevada Music Educators Association’s) Washoe Zone Representative.

Hutton holds a Master of Music in Choral Conducting degree, with distinction, from the prestigious Westminster Choir College of Rider University in Princeton, NJ.  He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Music and Philosophy with a minor in Bioethics, magna cum laude, from Loyola University in Chicago.

The next Carson Chamber Singers’ virtual performance project includes two short, connected pieces, Songs from Silence by Elaine Hagenberg, and an Italian madrigal by Monteverdi. Hutton said, “Hagenberg dedicated her work to the choral community in hope of healing during times of silence and distance. It is very accessible and lovely. The Monteverdi madrigal, Longe da te cor mio (Far from you, my heart), has a similar ‘pining’ sentiment.”

Rehearsals begin Tuesday, January 26, on Zoom. Carson Chamber Singers information and registration/application form are available on the Symphony website at http://ccsymphony.com/ccsingers.htm or by calling the Carson City Symphony Association at 775-883-4154.

The 2020-2021 concert season is supported by grants from the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts, the Carson City Cultural Commission, and by private donations.
