Welcome to Summer – Pedestrians are everywhere – all ages…


Pedestrian Safety Reminder from CCSO Sgt. Mike Cullen

The Carson City Sheriffs Office will be joining forces with other law enforcement agencies statewide focusing on pedestrian safety June 5th through June 21st.  We are in our summer weather patterns and everyone is anxious to get outside and enjoy it. If you are driving or walking here are some tips to keep in mind.

While walking:

Whenever possible, walk on the sidewalk; if no sidewalk is available, walk facing traffic
Cross streets at crosswalks
Look left, right and left again before crossing the street, making eye contact with drivers of oncoming vehicles to make sure they see you
Stay alert – avoid cell phone use while walking
Avoid alcohol and drug impairment when walking
Wear bright and/or reflective clothing, and use a flashlight at night
Children should cross the street with an adult

While Driving:

Watch for pedestrians and yield to pedestrians in crosswalks, it’s a good idea to make eye contact, let them know you see them
Never pass vehicles stopped at crosswalks
Do not drive under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
Distracted driving can be just as bad, texting can wait

Please be careful out there and have a great summer.

Carson Farmers Market debuts Saturday, 8:30am, 3rd and Curry, downtown

Carson Farmers Market
3rd & Curry

The Carson Farmer’s Market launches their first opening of the season this Saturday at 8:30am at 3rd and Curry Streets.  It closes at 1pm.  There will be no crafts.  No pets allowed.  Just food.  Under the circumstances of the Corona Virus market management insists on these regulations:

Carson Farmers Market Rules and Procedures for COVID-19 2020

Faced with the COVID 19 Pandemic, we remain committed to creating and maintaining the highest quality venue while incorporating a win-win-win philosophy for the growers, vendors and our faithful public. Traditionally, Farmers’ Markets are places of social gathering and community. Markets are also where we find fresh produce, local meats, tasty food, handcrafted items, gourmet foods, and unique home businesses.  But the current COVID requirement for social distancing challenges the traditional Farmers’ Market model. In fact, we now find ourselves 180 degrees from that norm.  Given this circumstance, the management and vendors must do all we can to make the best of the situation.  If there is a silver lining, it is twofold: First, Farmers’ Markets are considered essential; and second, the timing of this disruption is prior to the height of Nevada’s Market season.

Nevertheless, the following guidelines will be in place immediately and include social distancing, restricted food handling, and restricted monetary handling.

The Carson Farmers Market General Guidelines

  • Required: Additional space between vendor booths, 10 feet wherever possible, and reconfigured for easier access and departure and where customers can spread out 6ft.
  • Required: Handwashing stations or hand sanitizer stands for customers where possible
  • Eliminated:  All entertainment, promotions, seating areas, or anything else that encourages customers to linger
  • Eliminated: Drinking stations
  • Eliminated: All sampling
  • Eliminated: Onsite food preparation
  • Eliminated: All artisan vendors (arts, crafts, non-food vendors)

Carson Farmers Market Specific Guidelines

Measures to be taken by Vendors:

To help keep everyone safe at our farmers market and support social distancing, we have enacted the following changes:

  • Vendors and employees who deal directly with the public must wear facemasks, pursuant to the State of Nevada requirements for businesses in Phase I Guidance
  • Posted signs with safety guidelines
  • Frequently perform enhanced environmental cleaning of commonly touched surfaces, wipe down payment terminals and areas where customers touch between each customer.
  • Vendors may not touch reusable bags belonging to customers
  • Ensure the tables in vendors’ booths are set up to prevent customers from crowding in vendor booths with 6ft distancing
  • Strongly encourage grab-and-go, pre-packaged produce
  • Require handwashing stations or hand sanitizer and gloves for their staff. Must wash their hands several times throughout the day and replace gloves often. Make sure to wash your hands before putting a new pair of gloves on
  • No cloth tablecloths allowed, only tablecloths that can be wiped down or no tablecloths at all
  • Unpackaged food and cash/scrip /card may not be handled by the same person. We are requesting, if possible, a minimum of two people in the booth to maintain 6ft from one another. One handling cash/scrip/card and one handling produce. If you only have one vendor, you must use one hand for the product and one hand for card/cash/scrip. No cross-contamination
  • Market staff/volunteers will actively encourage social distancing and ask customers to leave the Farmers’ Market if met with refusal

Measures to be taken by Customers:

Practicing social distancing requires everyone’s participation to be effective. We need your help to create a social distancing friendly environment and are asking you to follow these guidelines when you visit our modified market:

  • If you are sick, stay home and ask a friend or family member to pick things up for you instead
  • Wash your hands with soap and water before coming to the market
  • We highly recommend everyone to wear masks
  • Read all Market signs and vendor signs
  • Maintain 6 feet of space from other shoppers and allow others their space when shopping
  • If you need to sneeze or cough, sneeze or cough into a tissue or into the crease of your elbow
  • Shop quickly to limit crowding
  • No sampling of products
  • Buy pre-bagged items whenever you can – some farmers are preparing them ahead for you
  • Your reusable bags will not be allowed to be handled by vendors; you will have to place your product in your own bag
  • Minimize the size of your group when shopping and keep your group together – this is especially important when shopping with young children
  • Wait outside the booth until it is free of other shoppers, then take your turn
  • You will not be able to spend time socializing or linger at the farmers’ market and will be asked to leave if you do so
  • Do not touch anything for sale before you buy it. The farmer/vendor will pick out what you want and bag it for you
  • If possible, use touchless payment (pay without touching money, a card, or a keypad). If you must handle money, a card, or use a keypad, use hand sanitizer right after paying.
  • Thank your farmer.

 Everyone to Remember:

  • Wash your hands thoroughly and often for at least 20 seconds
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Make sure to wash your reusable bags before coming to the market
  • Wash all produce thoroughly before using it
  • We also want to emphasize that pets are not allowed at our farmers market – only service animals.

We want to ensure our market stays open by following all local rules and guidelines for the market, we ask you to please adhere to these rules so we can all enjoy the market this summer. 

From the Carson Farmers Market to you, may this be a great yet modified Market Season!

A fire broke out at a rambling upscale home near the end of Hells Bells Road Tuesday morning. Firefighters arrived to see flames shooting high over the garage. A fast attack knocked the flames down before they spread to the rest of the home. The garage was heavily damaged as well as to a vehicle parked inside. A small travel trailer parked about twenty feet away was singed by the heat.

Firefighters knocked down the garage fire then concentrated on checking to see if the fire had spread to the main living quarters of the house. They opened two small sections of the roof and began checking for any fire extension.

The exact cause of the fire has not yet been released. There were no injuries to firefighters or the home’s occupants.

A protest rally erupts in gunfire in Las Vegas

Atty Gen. Aaron Ford

Attorney General Ford Issues Statement on Officer Shootings
During Local Protests

Las Vegas – Today, Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford issued the following statement on the recent officer-involved shootings that took place during local protests in the Las Vegas valley:

“Today I was heartbroken to hear of two officer involved shootings that took place last night in the Las Vegas valley. According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, one officer is in critical condition and the investigation remains ongoing. My family is praying for the families of those who were killed and for the recovery of those injured.

Across Nevada and this nation, people are scared, angry and in pain. Racial injustice has been part of this country’s history since before America was founded continues to this present day. But this country will not absolve its violent history with a violent future. Americans have made great strides towards equality because passionate people took the heat of their anger and used it to forge real change. Thousands of Nevadans have peacefully protested against racial injustice and I encourage those peaceful demonstrations and taking constructive action. Donate to a cause, volunteer with an organization you believe in, and participate in our elections. You may feel helpless right now, but in reality, you have the power here to drive the change we are all seeking for a more equal and just country. “

More information about the shootings and the ongoing investigation can be found on the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s website.

Outdoor watering schedule kicks in on Monday (never a watering day)

It’s that time of year….AGAIN. Summertime outdoor watering will be limited somewhat so residents and business owners don’t overdo it. It’s an annual reminder that watering every day is a BIG NO-NO. We live on the edge of a desert and we all have to behave like we understand.

Here’s the schedule: June 2nd is the actual first-of-the-week watering day of the season and will be through September 30th. Watering days – for ODD numbered addresses – are Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and for EVEN numbered addresses it’s Sunday, Wednesday and Friday. Watering is allowed in the morning up to 10am. Then turn it off. Watering can then resume after 6pm. Again, no watering on Mondays.

However, there is hand watering! Hand watering is allowed when flowers, shrubs and vegetables need it. But remember, don’t water when it’s too hot or too windy. Again all outside watering starts Tuesday, June 2nd and runs to the last day of September.

Kiwanis Meals-on-Wheels still needs our support so others may survive the plague of Covid-19

In the meantime, we all can donate by going online at carsoncitykiwanis.square.site/product/meals-on-wheels-donation/4 and use your credit or debit card. Whether it’s $10 or $100 or more, you are helping your fellow human beings survive the worst viral invasion in many decades.

Family gathering with children decays into confrontations on Oxbow late Friday night

12 midnight – Disturbance at a home in the 2800 block of Oxbow Drive, directly south of Walmart off Lone Mountain.  There were reported arguments between family members and possibly those that weren’t family members.  There was a scramble by Carson City Deputy Sheriff’s to determine the location of the weapons that were said to be on the property.  The weapons were found by deputies.  The deputies settled down with family members and tried to get to the bottom of what happened.  It did not seem that anyone was injured in the commotion or what triggered it.  There were children in the house at the time of the incident.

Motorcycle hit by a car at Woodside and Desatoya

6:27pm –  A motorcyclist was hit pretty hard by a vehicle at Woodside and Desatoya.  The motorcycle rider was up and walking around but is bleeding pretty bad from his left hand.  He quickly took off running leaving his motorcycle behind.

6:30pm Reports from the scene say the motorcyclist appeared to be drunk and fled the scene.  He was described as a white male with black hair and wearing casual clothing.  Deputies can probably track him down by his license plate number, even though it’s an expired plate.

Busy morning for firefighters – stabbing at a prison and a building fire at the airport

Carson City Firefighters were dispatched to the Warm Springs Prison mid-morning on a report of an inmate being stabbed by another inmate.  The victim suffered multiple stab wounds.  Care Flight landed and picked up the victim and rushed him to Renown in Reno.  No word on his condition.

Inmate with multiple stab wounds is loaded aboard a Care Flight air ambulance at Warms Springs Prison

Then later in the morning a fire broke out inside a Carson City Airport storage building.  A tall, black column of smoke rose up high in the sky directly north of the Airport Fire Station….so firefighters had a quick jump on it, but it appeared that a lot of damage to the building and its contents may have happened anyway.  No injuries reported.  No cause yet released.

Care Flight lifts-off bound for Renown in Reno.

Then within minutes a fire broke out at the Carson-Tahoe Airport. A storage building immediately north of the Airport Fire Station began releasing a tall black column of smoke as the contents of a rented building went up in flame. Firefighters quickly shot a lot of water onto the fire and it was out within 15 minutes. Damage to the building and contents was considerable. No cause yet determined.

West side of the burning building. Just earlier dark black smoke was sent high in the air over the airport.

Firefighters wrapping their quick assault on the blaze. Cause of the fire not released yet.

Stabbing at Warm Springs Prison

9:30pm – An inmate stabbing has occurred at Warm Springs Prison.  Reports say an inmate at the prison has suffered multiple stab wounds.  Law Enforcement and paramedics are enroute.  Care Flight has been activated.  A Care Flight Air Ambulance will be in the air in few minutes and will be on scene at Warm Springs in about 15 minutes.
