Nevada U.S. Senator wins a big “bump up” in federal low income housing support for Nevadans…

Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto

U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) announced Monday that the state of Nevada will receive nearly $6.8 million in Housing Trust Fund (HTF) grants, more than double what the state usually receives. These grants are a direct result of Cortez Masto’s advocacy during the previous administration, which tried to cut funding for this vital program.

With HTF funding, Nevada will be able to build, rehabilitate, and maintain affordable housing for extremely low- and very low-income households, which is why Cortez Masto has consistently led efforts to protect the grant program and deliver its critical funding to Nevada.

“When the Trump administration tried to gut affordable housing funding, I stood up to them and protected it, securing millions in federal dollars to build and rehabilitate low-income housing for Nevada. I’m proud to see the HTF program I protected will now deliver more than double the federal funding we have received in the past, and I will work to make sure Nevadans continue to get the resources they need to find a safe and stable place to live.”

Senator Cortez Masto has been a leader in the Senate promoting affordable housing. She is leading legislation to hold lenders accountable for housing discrimination and recently worked to secure housing provisions in the American Rescue Plan that will provide $30 billion in rental and critical utilities assistance. In recent COVID relief legislation, Cortez Masto has consistently called to increase the supply of new homes, and she cosponsored a change to the Low Income Housing Tax Credit that will provide for an additional 130,000 affordable homes throughout the nation by 2030.

She advocated for and secured increased funding for proven programs that build new housing developments, provide rental assistance, aid people experiencing homelessness, provide housing counseling and expand vouchers, and enforce fair housing laws.

Covid-19 update…

Oregon reports 404 new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases, 1 new death

PORTLAND, Ore. — There is 1 new COVID-19 related death in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,392, the Oregon Health Authority reported at 12:01 a.m. today.

Oregon Health Authority reported 404 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today bringing the state total to 166,882.  

Vaccinations in Oregon

Today, OHA reported that 32,692 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 22,084 doses were administered on April 3 and 10,608 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on April 3.

Oregon has now administered a total of 1,00,991 first and second doses of Pfizer, 924,661 first and second doses of Moderna and 49,520 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.

Cumulative daily totals can take several days to finalize because providers have 72 hours to report doses administered and technical challenges have caused many providers to lag in their reporting. OHA has been providing technical support to vaccination sites to improve the timeliness of their data entry into the state’s ALERT Immunization Information System (IIS).

To date, 1,225,575 doses of Pfizer, 1,102,200 doses of Moderna and 105,800 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines have been delivered to sites across Oregon.

These data are preliminary and subject to change.

OHA’s dashboards provide regularly updated vaccination data, and Oregon’s dashboard has been updated today.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 150, which is three fewer than yesterday. There are 43 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is one fewer than yesterday.

The total number of patients in hospital beds may fluctuate between report times. The numbers do not reflect admissions per day, nor the length of hospital stay. Staffing limitations are not captured in this data and may further limit bed capacity.

More information about hospital capacity can be found here.

Cases and deaths

The new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases reported today are in the following counties: Baker (1), Benton (5), Clackamas (59), Clatsop (1), Columbia (7), Coos (3), Curry (2), Deschutes (31), Douglas (8), Grant (2), Jackson (24), Jefferson (3), Josephine (12), Klamath (13), Lane (30), Lincoln (4), Linn (12), Malheur (1), Marion (28), Morrow (1), Multnomah (84), Polk (13), Tillamook (3), Union (4), Wallowa (1), Wasco (1), Washington (45) and Yamhill (6).

Oregon’s 2,392nd COVID-19 death is a 58-year-old man in Lane County who tested positive on March 11 and died on April 3 at PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center. He had underlying conditions.

REQUEST FOR OFFICIAL NAMING OF SIX OPEN SPACE PROPERTIES

(Carson City, NV) – The Carson City Parks, Recreation & Open Space Department invites all citizens interested in the official naming of six open space acquisitions to respond to a survey with proposed nominations, or to provide additional suggestions. The subject properties are located throughout Carson City. Please refer to the map on our website for each property location.

The property descriptions, maps and survey can be found on the Parks, Recreation & Open Space Department’s website at carson.org/name. The policies and procedures for naming Open Space properties suggest that proposed and adopted names should provide some form of individual identity to the property. If possible, names should be related to the unique natural landscape, geographic or topographic features, indigenous plants, or wildlife, cultural or historical heritage. The Washoe Tribe of Nevada and California were invited to review a map of unnamed Open Space properties and provide naming suggestions for properties and places that are important to their culture and history. With their participation and the potential adoption of official names, Carson City will be able to better recognize and celebrate the history of the Washoe Tribe throughout our region. These nominations have been noted in the survey.

Survey results must be received no later than 5:00 P.M. on April 12, 2021. The survey results and recommendations will be discussed at the Open Space Advisory Committee meeting on Monday, April 19, 2021 at 5:30 P.M. in the Robert “Bob” Crowell Board Room. A final recommendation to name the open space properties will ultimately go to the Carson City Board of Supervisors for final approval and adoption.

For further information, please contact Lyndsey Boyer, Carson City Open Space Manager at (775) 283-7341.

A message from the American Wild Horse Campaign

Preventing the extinction of Nevada’s wild horses.

Over the last few weeks we have been sending you information on SJR3 — a Nevada Senate resolution that calls on Congress to fund brutal helicopter roundups of at least 40,000 of Nevada’s cherished wild horses and burros, in efforts to reduce their populations. 

Our wild horse campaign is extremely happy to report that in collaboration with the committee chair and vice chair, and with support from Congresswoman Dina Titus, we were able to secure an amendment to SJR3 that would prioritize fertility control efforts over brutal wild horse roundups. 

Even better, we struck the language urging the BLM to reduce populations to the unscientific “Appropriate” Management Level of as few as 7,100 wild horses and 452 burros on 14 million acres of public land in Nevada. 

This is a major win not only for the American Wild Horse Campaign, but for wild horses in the state of Nevada! We couldn’t have done this without the thousands of supporters who sent in their opposition to SJR3 while it was in committee, making wild horses the most popular issue in the Nevada Legislature this year! Together, we made a big difference.

On Nevada’s Virginia Range, we have been successfully using PZP fertility controls to manage a large wild horse population for the last two years — that’s how we know this approach works. 

Adding fertility control as a priority to this resolution is a big step forward, because, as the state with half of America’s wild horses, Nevada has strong influence on Congress and federal wild horse policy. 

But this battle isn’t over yet. With this amendment, SJR3 is headed to the Nevada State Assembly where we’ll have a continued fight on our hands.

If you spot a baby bird, avoid it. Mom and Dad are probably nearby…

Let mama bird raise her young…don’t intervene!

Spring is here and the birds are chirping—some for the very first time. Among the fresh blanket of color that new blooms have given our desert, baby birds are finding their way in nature.  Some will even find their way to the ground, but people should not be alarmed if they find a baby bird hopping on the ground. Usually, it is just part of the natural learning process.

Some people may be tempted to pick up one of these birds, but experts at the Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) say a bird’s best chance of survival is with its natural parents. Here are a few tips for interacting with these animals.  “When you find a baby bird on the ground, the first thing you want to know is if it has any feathers,” said Jessica Brooks, wildlife education coordinator with NDOW. “Many bird species go through what’s called a ‘fledgling’ phase. Fledgling birds leave their nest before they are fully flighted and spend a week or so hopping their way through aviator training while their parents monitor and feed them. If you find a young bird with feathers on the ground, chances are the parents are nearby supervising it while it finds its wings. As long as the little hopper isn’t in danger from cats, dogs, or traffic, the best course of action is to leave it alone. Be sure to keep your pets inside during this time to avoid drawing fatal attention.”

If you have found a nestling—a bird with no feathers—you can attempt to return it to its nest. Contrary to popular belief, parents will not abandon a baby bird that has been handled by humans. If you cannot find the nest—or if it is out of reach—you can attempt to construct an artificial one out of a shoebox or similar container, and place it in a safe, shady location off the ground. Parents will often return to their baby and nurture it in its new dwelling.

Waterfowl—including ducks, geese, and other large aquatic birds—can be found year-round throughout Nevada. Although most waterfowl base themselves around our lakes, ponds, and canals, there are instances where people may find them frequenting urban property, especially if there is a pool available. If you see waterfowl making themselves at home around your pool in the spring, you can assume they may be attempting to build a nest. It is in your and their best interest to intervene as soon as possible. Check under shrubs frequently to look for signs of nest building. It is critical that you remove nests before they lay eggs. Once eggs are laid, it is illegal to relocate the nest because they are protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

“Walking away from an animal that appears in need of help can be difficult, but we must remember that these are wild animals that have parents that are much better caretakers than we can be,” Brooks adds. “By respecting these animals, we can do our part to help keep wildlife wild.”

Story from:  The Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) protects, restores, and manages fish and wildlife, and promotes fishing, hunting, and boating safety. NDOW’s wildlife and habitat conservation efforts are primarily funded by sportsmen’s license and conservation fees and a federal surcharge on hunting and fishing gear. Support wildlife and habitat conservation in Nevada by purchasing a hunting, fishing, or combination license. Find us on Facebook and Twitter or visit us at ndow.org.

Governor Steve Sisolak pulling out all the stops to keep Nevada above water!!

Governor Steve Sisolak wants to put some federal funds to work for Nevada…

EVERY NEVADAN RECOVERY FRAMEWORK American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 –

H.R.1319 – The American Rescue Plan (“ARP”) provides nearly $1.9 Trillion dollars in aid to combat the COVID-19 Pandemic and and lift up Nevada’s economy. The comprehensive funding package allocates dollars to a wide array of programs and services, such as K-12 education, vaccine distribution, food security, consumer protection, housing assistance, direct payments to taxpayers, and additional unemployment insurance assistance. The ARP also includes direct aid to State and local governments, which should deliver approximately $2.9B to the State of Nevada, with counties and local governments expected to receive an additional $1B (collectively). These funds are to support specific Federal COVID-19 related priorities and are intended to be spent by December 31, 2024.

All ARP funds will come with a complex and defined set of rules and guidelines, developed by Federal agencies over the next few months and subject to revisions over time.The $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan dedicates $350 billion in aid to states, cities, tribal governments and U.S. territories, so in addition to the resources received directly to the State, Nevada’s cities and counties are also receiving direct funding allocations from the Federal Government.

Additionally, school districts throughout Nevada will receive direct federal assistance as well. The ARP also allocates hundreds of billions in federal assistance toward rental and housing stabilization, vaccination efforts, public health programming, food security, K-12 and higher education, assistance for vulnerable populations, small business support, economic recovery, and more. Finally, the ARP includes the “Coronavirus Capital Projects Fund,” which dedicates another $10 billion for states, territories, and tribal governments to carry out critical capital projects. The“Every Nevadan Recovery Framework will serve as the foundation to ensure the best use of funds received directly by the State of Nevada. (more…)

Nevada AG Aaron Ford on fake virus ID cards in Nevada and elsewhere

Nevada Attorney General Aaron Ford

 

Carson City, NV – Today, Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford called on Twitter, eBay, and Shopify to take immediate action to prevent people from selling fraudulent Centers for Disease Control (CDC) vaccination cards on their platforms. A bipartisan coalition of 45 attorneys general raised concerns about the public health risks of these fake cards in a letter to the companies’ CEOs. 

“At a time when getting vaccinated is critical for the health and safety of our community, fraudsters are once again taking advantage of this pandemic and creating fake COVID-19 vaccine cards,” said AG Ford. “Making these fake cards is an illegal way to say you have been vaccinated and could put our entire health and safety plan at risk. Nevadans, continue to be vigilant of misinformation going around and file a complaint if you have encountered scams related to COVID-19. Stay safe and make us Nevada Proud.”

Legitimate vaccination cards are given by providers when they administer the vaccine. Individuals who buy fake cards can have their own information added to the card or add it in themselves, so it appears they have been vaccinated when they have not. These deceptive cards threaten the health of our communities; delay our ability to protect from the virus; and violate many state laws. 

In their letter, the attorneys general ask the CEOs to: 

  • Monitor their platforms for ads or links selling blank or fraudulently completed vaccination cards; 
     
  • Promptly take down ads or links that are selling cards; and 
     
  • Preserve records and information about the ads and the people who were selling them. 

In addition to Nevada, other states joining the coalition includes:, Alaska, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Guam, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, New York, North Dakota, Northern Mariana Islands, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virgin Islands, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

NHP Investigating Fatal Crash on SR-341 at D Street (Virginia City)

 Nevada Highway Patrol Troopers responded to an injury crash involving a single motorcycle on SR-341 at D Street in Virginia City.

Preliminary investigation shows that a black 2017 Harley-Davidson motorcycle was northbound on SR-341 at a high rate of speed. The rider approached a sharp left-hand curve, applied heavy braking, and entered a locked wheel skid. The rider failed to slow the motorcycle sufficiently to negotiate the curve and the motorcycle left the roadway to the right. The rider was ejected from the motorcycle as it overturned down an embankment.

The rider, Anthony Pizarro, a 25-year-old Fernley resident, was transported via CareFlight to a local area hospital where he later succumbed to injuries sustained in the crash.

Cows are displacing critical Sage Grouse grazing – Court rules against it.

Sage Grouse getting eaten out of house and home…

The seemingly never ending war between cattle ranchers and what’s left of America’s Sage Grouse population is back in the news.  Ranchers keep pushing the Sage Grouse off their native grazing lands causing their numbers to plunge and may be getting closer to an even more rapid decline in their ability to survive.

Ecological experts are now predicting that the latest push by cattle ranchers to take over more grouse grazing lands could irreversibly remove the sage grouse’s contribution to the ecological balance of not only themselves but various other wildlife.  Here’s the story from the Associated Press. Click here.

More progress for hikers and bikers to better enjoy Lake Tahoe on trails along north shore

Enhancing the enjoyment of Lake Tahoe. Thank you Forest Service!!

LAKE TAHOE:  The Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit and Nevada Land Trust are pleased to announce the completed donation of 18.6 acres of land in Incline Village to the National Forest System. This parcel, known as the Bull Wheel property, provides the missing link needed to connect the seven-mile-long Incline Flume Trail from Mt. Rose Highway to Tunnel Creek creating an expanded trail system for hiking, mountain biking and running.

“The Bull Wheel gift has certainly been one of the highlights of our 22 years,” said Nevada Land Trust Executive Director, Alicia Reban. “Starting with the Duffield’s generosity, all our partners have brought their skills to the table for the greater good. Conservation is stronger when we work together.”

The Bull Wheel project began in 2016 when Cheryl and David Duffield, owners of the Ponderosa Ranch, donated the parcel to Nevada Land Trust. Since then, Friends of Incline Trails and Nevada Land Trust have partnered to realign and restore this section of trail to prepare it for public use.

The much-anticipated Incline Flume Trail link is an easy, flat trail that offers amazing, high elevation views of Lake Tahoe and is an experience that even beginner mountain-bike riders can enjoy. The connection also provides linkage to miles of single-track trail south to Spooner Summit.

A celebration and formal ribbon cutting will be held at a later date to be announced.
