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.

Wild Horse Protectors hope President Biden will better protect our wild horses…

From:  The American West Heritage Center –

It’s been a wild first two weeks of 2021, but we’re standing strong at The America West Heritage Center for our wild horses and burros. We’re a few days away from a new Administration and our team has been pushing forward with our plan of action to protect America’s wild free-roaming horses and burros from mass roundups and slaughter.   

First 100 Days Wild Horse Agenda for the Biden Administration

Just this week, AWHC submitted its First 100 Days Wild Horse Agenda to the Biden Administration with an urgent plea to reform the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM’s) wild horse and burro management program, which is careening toward fiscal and animal welfare disaster.  

Urgent action is necessary in light of the BLM’s plan to round up 90,000 wild horses and burros from public lands over the next five years, a move that would triple the number of horses maintained in off-range holding facilities while decimating wild herds at a cost to taxpayers of nearly $1 billion. 

This agenda can set the stage for progress and reform of BLM’s inhumane practices.

We’re hopeful that the new administration will take significant steps to rein in the BLM and its mistreatment of our nation’s wild horses and burros. By following our First 100 Days Agenda, the Biden Administration can take necessary first steps to finally granting these iconic animals the protection and humane management they deserve. 

Public Lands Rancher Appointed to Represent Public on Wild Horse & Burro Advisory Board

The last four years have been marked by an all-out assault on our public lands by the Interior Department under Secretary David Bernhardt and the illegally-serving BLM Director William Perry Pendley. America’s wild horses and burros have not escaped the destruction. Scapegoated for massive environmental damage to public lands caused by the livestock industry, these iconic animals face virtual extinction under the Bernhardt/Pendley Plan to cull wild herds by 70 percent. 

And now, in a parting shot, the outgoing Secretary has appointed a public lands rancher who views wild horses as a “protein source” to represent the public interest on the BLM Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board. Read more about this corrupt appointment and AWHC’s vow to fight it here.

AWHC Responds to One-Sided Sacramento Bee Article

Last month, the Sacramento Bee published a one-sided story on the Devil’s Garden wild horse herd, which gave a megaphone to ranchers who want the land where the horses roam for their cattle. The article dismissed wild horse advocates as having a romanticized view of wild horses, who the author believes are better off captured and fed in pens than living free in the wild. On Saturday, the newspaper published AWHC’s response in an OpEd entitled, “How to fix federal mismanagement of California’s wild horse population.” Read the article here.

AWHC continues to fight the mismanagement of the Devil’s Garden wild horses by the U.S. Forest Service, which recently announced that it was selling all wild horses captured in a fall 2020 roundup for $25 a piece. Previous sales of captured Devil’s Garden wild horses have resulted in many disasters, including the escape of two untamed mustangs who are still at large in Pennsylvania, the deaths of 9 horses from salmonella poisoning after being shipped to Florida, and 18 horses delivered to a remote Colorado property that can be inaccessible during the winter months.

Meanwhile, the Forest Service continues to charge ahead with roundups as its main management tool and declined AWHC’s previous offer to fund a pilot fertility control program for this herd, which is California’s largest and most significant wild horse population. 

Roundup Report from Eagle Complex

Another massive wild horse roundup is underway, this one in the BLM’s Eagle Complex in eastern Nevada. AWHC’s observer is on site to document this capture operation that aims to remove over 1,000 wild horses and reduce the population to just 139-265 in this 743,000-acre habitat area — that equates to as little as one horse per every 5,345 acres!  The BLM is clearing the land of wild horses so that thousands of cattle and sheep can continue to graze this public lands area.

As with any roundup, the scenes we’re witnessing are truly heartbreaking. As of Jan. 15, 412 wild horses have lost their freedom in the Eagle Complex roundup and five have lost their lives.

We are working hard to change this — in Congress, in the courts and in the field by showing that humane management works. We need YOU more than ever to keep showing up, speaking up, and supporting our work. Together, we will do everything in our power to protect America’s wild horses.

Car smashes through Sportsman’s Warehouse east entrance

Toyota Prius drives through Sportsman’s east door. Three injured inside.

Two people in a Toyota Prius drove through the east doors of Sportsman’s Warehouse this morning. There were several injuries in the car and on the floor of the store. No fatalities but one individual was Careflighted to Renown in Reno.

The accident may have been the result of the lady driving having a medical issue. She drove the Prius eastbound on Wright Way, across Stewart, hitting a curb causing oil to spew out from under the car. The car proceeded westerly and smashed through the east doors of the building. It covered a lot store area before coming to a rest. Possibly three customers in the store were involved – but again, it doesn’t appear anyone suffered fatal injuries.

Injured person loaded aboard Careflight enroute to Renown in Reno.

Prius pulled through the gap it went through on the way in…

Prius is mostly fiberglass in front but engine likely damaged.
