Carson City’s C-Hill “C” is back up but many townspeople would like the “C” to stand out a little brighter like the one that was changed to symbolically mourn the death of a local high school student.
Volunteers showed up this past weekend to re-arrange the rocks to restore the giant “C” that had stared down at the town for decades from near the top of the hill. And they did a very fine job. But many citizens would prefer that the rocks get a good coating of white paint to fully restore the brightness of the city symbol that has been an iconic element on Carson City’s west side.
We’ll see if they do it. A hand-pump sprayer would probably have it done in a couple of hours. But the labor to haul the paint up there will likely be on the same time scale. Unless they fool us all.
The “C” restoration is a project of Carson High School Senior Gabe Crossman at Carson High School who is also an Eagle Scout of Boy Scout Troop 45. The effort also qualified as a senior project toward his high school diploma.
