Several teens are lucky beyond belief – They survived what could have been a triple killer accident…

Thursday afternoon a driver of small sedan loses control going northbound on South Curry Street due west of the train station…

Passersby, CC Fire & Rescue crews and Sheriff’s Deputies carefully extricated the three teens from inside the car. One injured victim went to Renown in Reno.  Wrecked car on right edge of photo.

The boulders they rolled over utterly destroyed the car.

It’s amazing that all three young people lived to tell the story. SEAT BELTS SAVE LIVES!!

Sheriff Ken Furlong sizes up the sequence of events that combined to make a crash that should have killed three young people – but didn’t. Again, SEAT BELTS SAVE LIVES!!

Auto hits a pedestrian at Carson High

3:36pm A young lady student driver and her mother went for a drive-around-training trip Thursday afternoon.  The young lady maneuvered the family vehicle into the south parking lot of Carson High and began to talk.  Apparently mom was upset about something because she stormed out of the car and headed to the front of it.  According to Sheriff’s Deputies the very upset student driver likely got disoriented because the car suddenly moved forward and bumped her mother and she fell.

An ambulance was called to the scene and transported the mother to Carson Tahoe RMC for an evaluation.  She didn’t appear to be seriously injured. 

The lesson learned might be that sometimes driver’s training should involve a calm, certified driver instructor.

Back to School Pedestrian Safety Message is focus for law enforcement

Carson City Sheriffs Office is joining Forces with other Nevada Law Enforcement agencies to Enforce Pedestrian Safety

From August 10 through August 21, 2020, law enforcement agencies statewide will be Joining Forces to heighten enforcement of the state’s pedestrian safety laws through the dedication of extra traffic patrol deputies. Funding for these extra patrols is possible by a Joining Forces grant received from the Nevada Department of Public Safety/Office of Traffic Safety.

All road users, drivers and pedestrians, need to remember and obey the basic rules of the road that have been put in place to help save lives:
Pedestrians
• Use intersections and marked mid-block crosswalks only
• Between dusk and dawn, wear bright clothing or accessories that can be seen at night
• Continue to look for oncoming traffic until the other side of the road is reached
• Make eye contact with drivers before stepping into the street

Drivers
• Obey speed limits and know when conditions warrant even slower speeds, including streets that are not well lit
• Check intersections and mid-block crosswalks for waiting pedestrians, and yield to them
• Make eye contact with pedestrians waiting to cross the street

No matter what form of transportation you use, take responsibility for others around you and respect their right to use the road. Make sure that you are predictable, alert, and focused on your safety and on the safety of those around you.  Joining Forces is a multi-jurisdictional law enforcement program aimed at reducing injuries and crashes through statewide enforcement in the areas of: DUI, speed, distracted driving, seat belt and pedestrian safety. The goal of these enforcement campaigns is to save lives by increasing public awareness about the dangers of making poor choices while driving.

Reno school tagged by the Covid-19 virus?

Corona Virus

We knew it had to happen, and it appears it has happened at Reno’s Grace Warner Elementary School.  Several adults at the school have come down with symptoms that parallel the symptoms of the Covid-19 virus.  All school office staff and two teachers were sent home so as to not spread the virus any further.

Here’s the story in This is Reno.  Click here.

If you’ve got the money, NV Energy wants you to pay up….

NV Energy customers who are not currently paying their bills, or have a past-due balance or have not indicated they are facing financial hardships due to the coronavirus, will have their power disconnected in September.  Customers facing disconnection will receive 10-day and 2-day notices.  Those using payment programs including Equal Pay and FlexPay will not be disconnected if they continue complying with payment rules.

Customers have been welcomed to inform NV Energy directly or online whether they have been financially impacted by COVID-19.

Meanwhile, Southwest Gas Corp. has no immediate plans to shutoff natural gas service to anyone.

Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak praised the state’s utilities at the outset of the pandemic for temporarily suspending nonpayment disconnections and waiving late fees.  “That is exactly the kind of commitment that will help sustain our residents as we weather this crisis,” Governor Sisolak added.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some — especially older adults and people with existing health problems — it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia.  Even death.

The number of infections is thought to be far higher because many people have not yet been tested.  Studies reveal people can be infected with the virus without feeling sick which means they can continue to spread the virus wherever they go..

It’s a race between viral attack and viral destruction….

Corona Virus
Update…

Carson City Supervisors meetings are offering a series of discussions that struggle to get their minds around how to deal with the continued outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic virus.  Supervisors learned this week that Carson City still has a rising number of infectious cases among the local population. The only thing that seems to push down Covid numbers is for humans to stay at home and out of the way.  But that’s not always possible.

Carson City has been laboring hard under the latest viral surges.  But it’s not just up to local residents to beat it back  – tourists must participate too.  But experience has taught us that the more visitors arrive from the outside world the harder it is for Carson area natives to show progress in fighting the virus on their home turf.  Many out of town visitors bring the virus with them – even if they have no symptoms.  They call it “A symptomatic” and those with this condition can infect everyone around them and not know that it’s happening.  Testing and tracing is the best way to track down the sources of the Covid-19 Virus. But the U.S., including Carson City, doesn’t test anywhere near enough individuals to accurately determine the spread of the virus except by keeping track of who winds up testing positive or who lands in the hospital or a funeral home.

The bottom line seems to be in practicing survival; 1) Wear a mask away from home, 2) wear a mask at work, 3) stay at least 6 feet away from a friend, co-worker or anyone else, 4) wash your hands at least 10 times a day, and 5)  avoid large crowds or gatherings.

Carson City medical officials say many citizens are practicing these and other protective measures but there are many others who just can’t accept that the country IS having a problem with a virus they can’t even see.  It’s possibly why the overall rate of infection for the virus is now rising in many areas of the country, including Carson City.

It’s getting plain to see that what will save us is the breakthrough of an effective anti-Covid-19 vaccine that will help slow the rate of Covid-19 fatalities. 

In the meantime the war rages against Covid-19 as the world cooks up various treatments.  There’s been no official word on when the vaccines will be ready.  Maybe by late December or early January – if we’re lucky.  REAL lucky!
