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.

Another Big Carson City Landfill Smoke Signal!

Spontaneous combustion  probably caused a fire at the Carson City Landfill Wednesday.  Many CC Firefighters converged on the blaze which had a considerable head start.

The fire burned hot, fanned by afternoon breezes.

Multi-Fire Engine attack. Carson City water tanker (left) putting out fire as it climbed the disposal pile.

Bulldozer driver separates out partially burned part of the pile.

Dump fires can smolder and wander underground for weeks, suddenly erupting above ground.

When you see only smoke you know you’re making progress.

The fire at the Carson City Landfill off Flint Road seemed to erupt out of nowhere. The fire spread quickly, mainly from the center of the trash pile…outward. A CC Fire-Rescue crew read the wind direction and positioned themselves on a hill above the fire and rained a lot of water down onto the burning trash. Another engine carrying primarily water attacked the fire from the southwest and proceeded to drown the fire further.

It was yet another in a sequence of fires over recent years that have kept firefighters busy. Spontaneous combustion used to be a top fire starter but today fire investigators say that disposed rechargeable batteries – especially discarded high-output lithium ion batteries – are more and more the cause of the fires.

Firefighters ask all Carson City residents to please dispose worn-out lithium-ion batteries the right way. Find a battery recycling facility and leave them there so they can be properly handled. Otherwise we’re going to see more and more of these “from out of nowhere” fires erupt at the Carson City Landfill and at other locations where the batteries can cause “thermal mischief” resulting in rather large bonfires.

Roll-over pickup accident in Washoe Valley

2:20pm  Report of a white pick up running off I-580 about midway down.  The driver lost control, left the highway and rolled upside down in the lake.  Both occupants managed to get out of the vehicle and are out and talking with NHP.  Watch for emergency responders.

Adele’s is gone, but an artistic replacement will help transform the site….

 

The last vestiges of Adele’s will soon make way for a large artistic installation which will stand outside the yet to be built Jackson Food Stores.  Reports from the Carson City Cultural Commission say the structure will be the outline of the state of Nevada and will stand seven feet tall and four feet wide and will be affixed to a small sitting wall at the corner of Carson and John.  Reports say the the sculpture will also sport “cutouts” throughout and will  be illuminated by very bright LED lights.  More information when it’s available.

CCSO still trying to track down suspect – Asks for public’s help….

The Carson City Sheriff’s Office Investigations Division is asking for assistance in identifying an unknown suspect, alleged to have broken into a home and assaulted the resident.

On May 13, 2020 a male suspect entered a residence, without permission, in the area of Colorado and Kansas.  The home owner returned home for lunch, found the male suspect in a back room, and they had an altercation before the suspect fled on foot.  The suspect is described as an average build Caucasian male, in his 40s, and approximately six feet tall.  He was also bald and may have a tattoo on his right forearm.  Lastly, he was wearing a red t-shirt and blue jeans.  He may have sustained minor facial injuries from the altercation with the home owner and was holding his chest when he fled.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Carson City Sheriff’s Office, Dispatch (775) 887-2677, Investigation Division, Detective Darin Riggin (775)283-7853, Investigations Sergeant Daniel Gonzales (775)283-7850 or Secret Witness (775)322-4900.

 

 

Case # 2020-2556

Magnificent Music in a Magnificent Town Done Well…..


Carson City Symphony launches ‘Project Euterpe’ videos to showcase local artists,and ensembles for all of Carson City to see and hear….

The Carson City Symphony and its associated ensembles have been entertaining people in the Carson City area for 36 seasons. Because they can’t currently perform live, in person, they are producing a series of once-or-twice-weekly video episodes to showcase the talents of their local artists, ensembles, and guest artists.

These episodes, called Project Euterpe will include excerpts from past concerts, some solo and small ensemble performances, previews of things to come, and perhaps some of the master classes taught by our guest soloists.

Project Euterpe is named for the muse of music in Greek mythology. She and her eight sisters, the other muses, lived on Mt. Olympus and entertained their father Zeus and the other Olympian gods with their artistry.

Symphony Conductor David Bugli said, “Euterpe was known by ancient poets as the ‘Giver of delight,’ and ancient Greek musicians would call on her aid in composing their lyric poetry and music. So, we are calling on her aid to help us communicate with our audience.”

Carson City Symphony ensembles hope to return to regular performances in the fall of 2020. Meanwhile, they invite the public to enjoy Project Euterpe videos.

Episode One, featuring guest saxophonist Rhett Bender, can be seen on Youtube here. Go here for Episode 2.

Links to all episodes will be available on the Symphony website CCSymphony.com and posted on the Facebook page facebook.com/CarsonCitySymphony.

For more information on Carson City Symphony, its educational programs and performing groups, see CCSymphony.com.

Brave Souls: Nevada Day Parade folks moving ahead with the event….

Nevada Day Parade is planning to run the parade – with fingers crossed, of couse….

An update from your Nevada Day Board

During these uncertain and challenging times the Nevada Day Committee hopes everyone remains safe and healthy.

Although we have seen way too many wonderful annual events being cancelled or postponed this year, we at Nevada Day are still moving forward planning this year’s Parade and related events.  The event and parade will be October 30th. We are hopeful that current restrictions will be lifted or at least relaxed enough to allow larger social gatherings.

As Parade Applications become available June 1st, we must plan for the best, but unfortunately the worst as well. We will be accepting applications for parade entries and vendor booths to be reserved on a first come first served basis. If the event has to be cancelled we will be offering 3 options for our applicants: A full refund, fees applied to the 2021 parade, or donating all or a portion to our Nevada Day Inc., a non for profit 501c3.

This also applies to our many generous sponsors for which without them this treasured event would not be possible. Funding is always a challenge for us, as it is for most nonprofits, making it even more difficult to see their main, or only, fundraising events being canceled.

Besides some funding set aside by the City of Carson, most Nevada Day Inc. funds come from sponsorships, entry fees, vendors and merchandise. Speaking of merchandise, unfortunately the Nevada Day Store inside the Visitor’s Center had to close. We are hoping to reopen again in June.

We will keep everyone updated as developments arise and will do our very best to preserve this historic 156 year old tradition, so please join us, we cannot do it without the tremendous support from our Community, Neighbors, and all fellow Nevadans. Thank you!

The 2020 Nevada Day Parade theme is: “Historic Moments in Nevada”

Numerous moments throughout our state’s history help shape and define Nevada. From the day this glorious state was born on October 31, 1864 during the Civil War, to the current year 2020, specific periods in time during our 156 years of statehood tend to stand out and set us apart from the other 49.

From the historic Gold and Silver Boom in the Comstock, legalized gaming and prostitution, quickie divorces – I imagine with some of the earlier Settlers this could have happened in that exact order – Women’s Suffrage, UFO sightings (landings?), on to the more recent decision of legalizing Cannabis.

Yes, Nevada has indeed had its share of unique moments occur in the past, with undoubtedly more in store for the future, and the Nevada Day Committee felt it was time to reflect back on them.

Also, please share with us on Facebook and Instagram when your company, organization, or business first took root in Nevada; we would like to share your story. Plus, what historic moment do you feel was the most significant?

Thank you for you continued support of this amazing, historical Nevada tradition!

Please visit The Nevada Day Store located inside the Carson City Culture and Tourism Authority at 716 North Carson, we would love to see you!

Get involved and help support this Historical Celebration of Nevada’s Admission into the Union as our 36th state.

Governor Sisolak might allow limited gaming operations next week. Really???

Governor Sisolak rolls the dice…BIG TIME!

Governor Sisolak is taking a huge risk by hinting strongly that he’ll let Nevada casinos throw their doors open to long-hungry and starved-for-adrenalin customers as soon as June 4.

Governor Sisolak will address the state on Tuesday to reveal what he’s been thinking about and planning for Phase 2 of the state’s reopening plan. It’s the same day the Nevada Gaming Control Board consults with state and local health officials about allowing (inadvertently) COVID-19 through the resort-casinos’ front doors all up and down the state. Sisolak has consistently stated that Covid-19 infections must be trending downward if the state is to be opened up to “partial business.” As a benchmark, Nevada casinos have been dark since mid-March.
And in that time Governor Sisolak observed, “The Gaming Control Board remains resolute in ensuring that gaming operations in this state do not compromise the health and safety of Nevadans…” which is a very tall order. Sisolak strongly urges Nevadans to wear face masks and practice social distancing in order to stay safe over the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

So we shall see what we shall see. Despite a moderation in Corona Virus infections, infection rates can, and frequently do, skyrocket within a 24 to 36 hour time period. Many medical experts consider premature business openings as playing with matches and gasoline. Few gaming winners with lots of medical losers.

Medical experts prefer another blast of cash from the Federal Reserve that would buy the country very valuable time to trigger more testing and tracing for still-infected Americans, many of whom don’t even know that they’re carrying the virus. Until that’s accomplished we very well could be THROWING A LOT OF GOOD MONEY AFTER BAD. Your average economist knows that until we get ahead of the virus spread, all the money in the world won’t fix things. They’ll just run up medical and funeral bills.

There’s no substitute for doing the right thing at the right time, regardless of what wishful-thinking public opinion demands. First we need to kill, or at least mortally wound the Covid-19 beast through testing, tracking and home and/or hospital stays. Then follow up with more effective treatments and vaccines. THEN our investment in recovery will be effective without “flare ups” – “flare ups” that always demand more and more money and time. The federal reserve can provide the “wait-in-place money” WHILE WE GET THE JOB DONE.

Just how smart and how logical are we??

Trump: “If Nevada allows Vote-by-Mail I’ll pull all federal funds out of Nevada…”

He’s at it again, Mr. and Mrs. Nevada. President Trump is threatening to pull all federal funds to states that conduct “Vote by Mail” and have Democratic governors – Nevada included.  Trump knows that if the Republican Party is to win, Democrats must be discouraged from voting due to rain or very long lines at their polling place.

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

More firefighters, Pay to shoot at the rifle range, a little bit of street maintenance and a 5-cent/gallon diesel tax

Saying that the Carson City Fire Department hasn’t added any firefighters in the last ten years while calls for service have risen 50%, the Fire Department got the approval from the Board of Supervisors Thursday to apply for a grant to hire NINE additional firefighters.  If the city gets the grant the new fire fighters could be ready for action in late spring.  And the frosting on the cake is that the federal government will be paying those fire fighters’ salaries for three years.  One variable that sped up the process for the grant application was the emergence of the Covid-19 virus that is still pounding the country and the rest of the world – and of course the U.S.’s slow reaction to the quick spread of the pandemic.  The total number of virus deaths in the U.S. are soon to top 100,000 souls and will certainly continue to climb based on how fast the U.S increases medical treatment and the availability of a vaccine.  There are said to be at least 15 varieties of Covid-19 vaccines being developed around the world – some even about to go into experimental trials.

The Supervisors added a 5-cent per gallon tax on diesel fuel within the city.  It’s no secret that street conditions in various parts of Carson City are nothing to write home about. The $400,000 that the new tax will raise will be added to the city’s already existing street maintenance fund.  The new tax will take effect this coming August 1st and expire the last day of 2022.

The Supervisors also passed a requirement that all users of the Carson Rifle and Pistol Range pay a fee to use the range.  All revenue will be turned back around to better maintain and improve the range along with better management.  The new admission rates to the range will take effect July 1st of this year.  A use rate has not yet been determined.

And finally, Carson City is going to be receiving funds to ensure that JAC bus service keeps humming right along.  The federal government has chipped in several million dollars to make sure those who need to get around town during this pandemic will get there. The grant will cover JAC’s preventative maintenance, critical security and capital improvements of JAC facilities.

Quad-County COVID-19 Update: Three New Cases and Two Recoveries 

(Carson City, NV)- Carson City Health and Human Services (CCHHS) is reporting three new positive cases and two additional recoveries of COVID-19 in the Quad-County region. This brings the total number of cases to 153, with 105 recoveries and three deaths, 45 cases remain active.

The new case is:

  • A male Douglas County resident in his 60’s
  • A male Carson City resident in his 30’s
  • A male Carson City resident in his 30’s

Carson City Health and Human Services is working to identify close risk contacts to prevent further spread of the disease. Due to medical privacy requirements and to protect their identity, no further information about the cases will be released.

County Total Cases Active Cases Recovered Deaths Hospitalized
Carson City 77 25 49 3 4
Douglas County 26 4 22 0
Lyon County 49 16 33 0
Storey County 1 0 1 0
TOTAL 153 45 105 3

Community-Based Testing for Those Without Symptoms
Individuals Tested Number of Results Received Positive Results Negative Results
1,798 1,798 1 1,797

 

All the results from the asymptomatic community-based testing locations have been received. CCHHS is working to contact individuals.

For those who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or have questions, call the Quad-County COVID-19 Hotline 7 days a week, 8 am to 5 pm. Spanish speakers are available. The phone number is (775) 283-4789.

Governor Sisolak challengers lose in court

Gov. Steve Sisolak

A drive to recall Governor Steve Sisolak ran out of gas in the courts as a federal judge in Las Vegas told the petitioner that he didn’t make the filing deadline for the recall.  The “Fight for Nevada” group complained about the state’s gun control laws, transfers of private property and state limits on issues surrounding private water wells.  But Governor Sisolak’s Corona Virus order for people to “Stay at Home” stopped the signature collection which is reported to be far short of the quarter of a million voter signatures required to get on the ballot of a future election.

The petitioner said he’ll continue to gather signatures and try to succeed on a future ballot.

Donald Trump: “If you vote by mail, I’ll take federal grant money away from Nevada!”

…and the beat goes on…..

It’s common knowledge that the Republican Party has a harder time being competitive at the polls when the weather is nice and more people turn out to vote.  Voting by mail is, of course, is a “work-around-the-weather” that the GOP criticizes because Democratic voters tend to outnumber Republicans when voters don’t want to stand in the rain.  As you can see above, voting more conveniently “by mail” is perceived by President Trump and the GOP as “a threat to the nation,” but perceived as “the right to vote” by Democrats.  Voting by mail is not illegal. It’s been common-place since The Civil War when Union troops mailed their votes from the battlefields. Let’s hope our election system survives this latest attack on American values and traditions.  Despite Trump’s statement above, voting by mail is NOT cheating.  Donald Trump votes by mail.  He’s a long-time mail-in-voter from New York, and now from Florida where he has declared, in writing, his official state residency.
