Roaring chimney fire stopped by Carson City Firefighters up County Line Road

Chimney fire near County Line Road and Wild Sage Drive in the Timberline area

Chimney fire put out at home in Timberline area.

Early Friday evening Carson City Firefighters were called to what was described as an out of control chimney fire off County Line Road.  There was quite a blaze burning inside the chimney – heavy smoke and flame quite visible from the top of the chimney.

Firefighter checking the interior of the chimney sleeve.

Firefighters made their attack by lugging a fire hose onto the roof and blasting a lot of water down the chimney.  Firefighters say they got there just in time to prevent any fire escape through the chimney walls to the outside much to the great relief of the homeowner.

Firefighters soaking the interior of the chimney to ensure fire was out.  Notice the check hole to allow firefighters to see if there was any fire damage outside of the flue

Fortunately nothing more than smoke got to the outside much to the relief of the homeowners.

Firefighters on the roof took pictures of the damage to ensure they didn’t miss any hot spots.

Thumbs Down on nearly 20′ high pump station off Norfolk Drive

Water booster facility already under construction….neighbors not happy.

The Carson City Planning Commission ran in to a brick wall of angry neighbors this week when they found out that the city was trying to build a view-killing 20-foot high water pump station on the backside of their homes – blocking their views of the Virginia Range. Part of the Long Ranch community lies between Kings and Ash Canyon Creeks and the city wants to build a water booster pump station just on the other side of the neighbors’ fence line.

Neighbors complained that they had heard there was a booster station planned for the area, but they assumed it would be built primarily underground as other booster stations in the area. So when they found out that the pump station building was going to be nearly 20 feet high with an engine muffler exhaust pipe coming out the top, they drew the line. One family complained that city officials were not completely transparent about their plans because the location of the pump station was not clearly indicated. So when a last minute site-plan was announced, it took everyone by surprise on the final location and the fact that their scenic views would be obscured.

The planning commission seemed a little taken-a-back as well. The commissioners told city staff to go back to the drawing board and reduce the size of the building. Instead of a nearly 20 foot high structure, commissioners said 15 feet ought to be the limit and that the station’s muffler should be downsized as well.

Public Works and Planning staff obviously got the message and said they would return in the near future with a scaled down version.

Hemp growing in captivity….

The Planning Commission also had another controversial issue to settle – where to grow hemp – which is marijuana without high levels of the psychotropic ingredient THC.  Hemp is used for a lot of things around the world, like paper, rope, clothing, plastics, even paint. 

But a wrinkle has erupted in Carson City as a great deal of interest is rising in growing hemp and refining it for manufactured products as mentioned above.  Trouble is, sizeable fields of hemp give off the same pungent “aroma” as regular marijuana plants.  And that’s why hemp is usually grown far away from inhabited areas or inside large industrial buildings. 

But there are some adventurous hemp growers, even marijuana growers, who want to grow their “crops” close to town so they can keep an eye on them.  But of course, if the neighbors get a whiff of what’s going on, they may not like it and complain to authorities. 

The strong aroma of young marijuana and hemp is not universally welcomed as the scent drifts into nearby neighborhoods.  But with air-tight indoor “grows”, the aroma stays with the plants – which brings us to why local laws encourage growing the weed indoors. 

As a result, the Planning Commission voted to ask the Carson City Board of Supervisors to draw up a new city law that basically outlaws “outdoor” grows of both marijuana and hemp.  Once harvested, both varieties lose their pungent aroma.  The commissioners therefore kicked the issue upstairs to let the Supervisors handle things – which will likely ensure that all marijuana and hemp are grown either inside large warehouses or in a location far, far away from human habitation.

We’ll see what the Supervisors come up with.

 

 

First Corona Virus case at a Nevada Prison

Corona Virus has made it inside state prison near Las Vegas

The Nevada Department of Corrections (NDOC) announces its first confirmed case of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) affecting an employee at High Desert State Prison (HDSP), located north of Las Vegas. “Our top priority is the health of staff and inmates at our facilities,” said Charles Daniels, NDOC Director. “Our preparation and response is deliberate and in accordance with agency contingency plans and protocols. Now that we have a confirmed case, our next goal is mitigating and ultimately preventing the sustained spread of COVID-19.

”To contain the virus at HDSP, NDOC has implemented procedures consistent with national and state health and human services guidelines. These procedures include:

* The employee self-quarantining at home
* HDSP inmates being isolatedin their cells.
* NDOC medical staff will continue observing inmates and staff for signs of the virus, which include coughing, fever, and shortness of breath.
* Surface Sanitation Teams, using a 10% bleach concentration solution will continue to thoroughly clean surfaces at all facilities.

Prison officials say NDOC will continue to closely monitor the situation at HDSP and all other NDOC facilities as it continues to work closely with local and state public health officials to ensure the health and safety of staff and inmates.

Nevada AG urges Trump Administration to help defeat Corona Virus

AG Aaron Ford
Wants Trump to lift certain restrictions on Corona Virus Research

Attorney General Ford, 14 States Urge Trump Administration to Ease Restrictions on COVID-19 Research

Carson City, NVToday, Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford and 14 states wrote a letter to President Trump and the Department of Health and Human Services urging the Administration to end its research ban on fetal tissue to aid the nation’s medical response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The attorneys general argue that lifting this ban could help scientists develop vaccines and study the effect the virus has on pregnant women and children.

“As our state and country faces an unprecedented crisis, now is not the time for politics,” said AG Ford. “If we’re going to overcome this pandemic as a nation, then we need to utilize all the tools in our toolbox, including allowing our scientists develop a vaccine and treatment for COVID-19.”

Scientists at the National Institute of Health who are working on potential therapies for COVID-19 is urging the administration for permission to work on fetal tissue, arguing that the current ban hinders our nation’s ability to address COVID-19. Research using fetal tissue has led to the development of other vaccines, such as those for polio, rubella and measles.

According to the American Medical Association, “fetal tissue has also been used to study the mechanism of viral infections and to diagnose viral infections and inherited diseases, as well as to develop transplant therapies.” This is work that the attorneys general find pertinent to the current COVID-19 health crisis. Recognizing the importance of these scientific contributions, in 1993, members of Congress on both sides of the aisle voted to legalize fetal tissue research. The attorneys general argue that the June 2019 ban impedes necessary research efforts during this unprecedented public health crisis, and are urging the Trump Administration to taking action by lifting this research ban.

In addition to Nevada, other states that participated in this letter include: California, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Delaware, Hawaii, Iowa, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Oregon, Vermont, Virginia and Washington.

June primary ballot – mail in ballots or drop off on election day

Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske says due to the lingering health threat of the Corona Virus, Nevada’s primary election vote, scheduled for June 9th, will be by mail-in ballot.  If you prefer not to mail it, take your ballot to a specific polling spot (only one per county) by June 9th and your ballot will be counted.  If not, it won’t be counted.

Well before the June 9th primary election, ballots will be mailed to all registered Nevada voters to fill out.  Once completed, place the ballot into the envelope provided, which is already stamped and pre-addressed to the state’s elections office.  Drop it into a mailbox and you’re done.

You may also register to vote the day of the June 9th election, but that would be cutting it very close especially if there are gaps in the information required on the registration form.

Carona Virus
CDC image

A front line medical expert today got up in front of a microphone and eloquently laid it all on the line.  It’s our attitude toward the Corona Virus that’ll save us.  We need to call for an all-out assault on it.  But that assault cannot be launched unless we do it right.  Get “virus carriers” off the streets and out of office buildings.  That’s what’s killing people.  People who don’t even know they’re carrying the virus are infecting other people!  Click here to get a workable perspective on how to end this nightmare.
