Police arrest man stealing merchandise in a big way

Carson City and Sparks Home Depot and Lowe’s stores were reportedly burglarized by 47 year old Brent Akers of Sparks.  Police say Akers would enter a store and put large boxes of merchandise in his shopping cart and then head for the check-out line.  Akers had earlier opened the boxes and stuffed very expensive merchandise inside them hoping the cashier wouldn’t notice them.

On one occasion in Carson City at a Home Depot an alert cashier looked deep inside one of the merchandise boxes and discovered expensive tools and electronic devices  At that point Akers immediately left the scene, got into his pickup and headed for home in Sparks. 

It’s not well known how many burglary attempts Akers made in the Reno-Carson City area but when police said he struck again at a Lowe’s store in Sparks he got caught – again.  He was followed home by law enforcement, stopped and arrested.  Akers was charged with Commercial Burglary and Attempted Grand Larceny and found himself in custody of Sparks Police.

Reno Man Sentenced to Prison for inducing child sexual abuse

Attorney General Ford Announces Sentencing of Reno Man for Child Abuse/Endangering and Neglect

Carson City, NV – Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford announced that Cisco Lamont Neal, 37, of Reno, was sentenced to up to five years in prison for inducing a minor child to engage in prostitution. As a result of this sexual exploitation, the child endured physical and mental suffering. The crimes were committed between August and September, 2019.  

Second Judicial District Court Judge Kathleen Drakulich sentenced Neal to 24 to 60 months in the Nevada Department of Corrections for the crime of child, abuse, neglect or endangerment, a category “B” felony, and 24-60 months for the crime of Attempt Sex Trafficking, a category “C” felony.  Both counts will run concurrent to each other. Additionally, upon Neal’s release from prison, he will have to register as a sex offender.

“January is human trafficking month and there’s no better time to remind Nevadans victimized by human trafficking that my office is here to help,” said AG Ford. “This success in the courtroom should also remind those seeking to entrap members of our community that your crimes have not gone unnoticed and will be prosecuted.”

To report instances of human trafficking, call the National Human Trafficking Resource Center Hotline at 1-888-373-7888. The National Human Trafficking Resource Center is a national, toll-free hotline available to answer calls from anywhere in the country 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Individuals may also call the U.S. Department of Justice Hotline at 1-888-428-7581 or call the local authorities. For more information on human trafficking, the warning signs, and how you can help fight this epidemic, visit the Office of the Nevada Attorney General’s website here.

The investigation of this case was conducted by the FBI Northern Nevada Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force. The Attorney General’s Criminal Prosecution Division prosecuted this case.

 

Shoplifting is getting more and more complicated, apparently…

Shoplifters inside Home Depot smuggling out expensive merchandise.

The Carson City Sheriff’s Office is trying to track down thieves who were busy stuffing merchandise into a large box last Tuesday at the Home Depot on Market Street in Carson City. The two suspects placed a large amount of power tools inside a bathtub box. The suspects paid for the bathtub and left the store. They placed the bathtub box on the roof of an unlicensed, dark early 2000s model Ford Escape and quickly drove away as marked patrol units moved in to stop them.

The Ford swerved around the patrol units, causing the bathtub box to fall off the Ford along with a quantity of stolen power tools they were hiding at the bottom of the box

Deputies pursued the vehicle as it roared south on Roop. Deputies decided to stop the pursuit after the Ford reached unsafe speeds, endangering the public.

They said the two suspect previously attempted to steal merchandise from the Spanish Springs Home Depot in Sparks earlier that day.

Anyone with any information on the case is urged to contact the Carson City Sheriff’s Office at (775) 887-2677 or Secret Witness at (775) 322-4900. You will remain anonymous. A $500 reward is being offered.

Oregon reports 731 new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases, 20 new deaths

There are 20 new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 1,924, the Oregon Health Authority reported at 12:01 a.m. today. 

OHA also reported 731 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today, bringing the state total to 140,063. 

Vaccinations in OregonToday, OHA reported that 14,896 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 10,943 doses were administered on Jan. 26 and 3,953 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Jan. 26. 

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). 

Oregon has now administered a cumulative total of 340,369 first and second doses of COVID-19 vaccines. To date, 600,875 doses of vaccine 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. 

The new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases reported today are in the following counties: Baker (4), Benton (8), Clackamas (67), Clatsop (4), Columbia (8), Coos (9), Crook (7), Deschutes (24), Douglas (9), Harney (1), Hood River (5), Jackson (35), Jefferson (7), Josephine (16), Klamath (13), Lake (2), Lane (52), Lincoln (3), Linn (21), Malheur (17), Marion (115), Morrow (5), Multnomah (118), Polk (21), Tillamook (1), Umatilla (30), Union (3), Wasco (2), Washington (106) and Yamhill (18). 

COVID-19 hospitalizations: The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 302, which is six fewer than yesterday. There are 74 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU beds) which is four more 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.

Governor Sisolak says he wants to pull out all the stops to get Nevada moving again…

Governor Steve Sisolak
Wants Nevada moving ahead…

Some of the federal money being issued to the states around the country has apparently been piling up in the Nevada’s piggy-bank in Carson City.  Governor Steve Sisolak has launched a vigorous campaign to partner with counties and cities around the Battle Born state to get more Nevadans back to work to keep Nevada going and growing.

A lot of that work involves big projects like rebuilding roads, upgrading our public schools, improving wastewater treatment plants, building flood control systems all of which will create thousands of new jobs up and down and across Nevada.

The Governor also pointed out that Nevada has been planning on billions of dollars in public projects whose costs will be leveraged by a mountain of federal funds spread across the country to help America get back on its feet.

Governor Sisolak says he has a list of capital projects that can be moved forward during 2021…but also a list of barriers that must be overcome.  There are also regulatory hurdles that must be conquered with local, state and federal resources.  Sisolak says “We must keep our minds wide open and our observations keen on the direction we want to go,” and that he will be in close touch with the State Treasurer’s Office to properly manage the expansion of public improvements.

Carson City Schools Closed on Thursday too…

Due to obviously rather wintery weather, Carson City schools will be closed on Thursday.

“All employees, students and teachers should remain home,” the school district said in a statement on Wednesday. “No student activities, school-work or programs will occur, including remote instruction. This includes school-course assignments, homework, afterschool programs and practices. No school services such as transportation, nutrition or student health will be provided.”  There will be no remote learning.

Snow days may need to be made up before the end of the school year.

Local Scientist Donates 550 Thermometer Watches to STEM School

Empire Elementary School fourth graders from Ms. Erica Meisler’s class their COVID watches. Left to Right: Denim Lehrbaum, Madison Fishburn and Emily Bell.

The Carson City School District is pleased to announce Empire Elementary School, a designated Governor’s STEM School, has received 550 Thermometer Watches from local Scientist Ron Newton. The wearable technology, costing less than $10, is designed to monitor the temperature of the wearer and indicate if they are running a fever. The school is beta testing the prototype, which constantly monitors temperature and displays every 8 seconds using a color changing light emitting diode without using a switch.

“This wearable piece of technology was developed by Mr. Newton as a way to help monitor some of our student population’s health, which is specifically appropriate during this global pandemic,” Richard Stokes, Carson City School District superintendent, said.

The school plans to utilize this generous technology gift by inviting students to wear the watches while they attend school. Here is a brief video detailing how the watch was created and disseminated to students. To be compliant with patient and student privacy laws, each student who wears the thermometer watch will also have a signed permission slip from their parents or guardians.

“As businesses and organizations purchased countless numbers of Hands-free IR (Infrared) Thermometers, amidst the pandemic, we feel fortunate to have a similar, more frequent tool to help assess the wellness of our student population,” said Susan Squires, principal of Empire Elementary School.

Last year, the Advisory Council on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM Council) and the Governor’s Office of Science, Innovation and Technology (OSIT) named Empire Elementary School as a Designated Governor STEM School. Designation as a Governor’s STEM School denotes that the school meets the highest standards of STEM instruction and is a model for schools around the state. For parents and the community, the designation also communicates the level of high-quality STEM education that can be expected at the school.

All K-12 schools in Nevada are eligible to apply for the designation. Empire Elementary submitted an application that described their curriculum practices, learning environment, STEM instruction and integration, leadership and stakeholder engagement. Following a review of the applications, Empire Elementary hosted a site visit by members of the STEM Council, OSIT, and other stakeholders to showcase their STEM practices. Empire Elementary also received a 10-foot banner and a digital seal that can be used on a website and other electronic communications.

A bit of schedule changing should work out okay for a Dayton Church and for the rest of us…

Dayton Valley Calvary Chapel

Dayton Valley Calvary Chapel issue isn’t over…

The long running legal debate as to whether there should be any attendance limit placed on Dayton Valley Calvary Chapel is still trying to find it’s way home in order to hold near normal congregations at their church.The issue has been battered about for many months but the question seems to be “what is an appropriate number of worshipers in any given church at any given time?” Crowds of people anywhere, including in churches, could run a high risk of creating another eruption-hot-spot of the Covid-19.

The trouble with the Dayton Valley Calvary’s Church is that they don’t want to be subjected to any fixed attendance level. Meanwhile, a lot of private businesses are cutting back clients/customers to 25% to 50% of service levels (take out) just to stay open. But reports say Calvary Chapel skipped right over the local district court’s review and started climbing the legal ladder all the way up to the U.S. Supreme Court thinking they’d get permission for a full church – continuing to fill all the pews every Sunday.

They didn’t get much satisfaction there either.  The Supreme Court refused to hear their case because the issue had not been fully examined in the lower courts. Calvary Chapel appeared to skip lower courts and head for courts in Washington DC.  When it got to those higher courts officials said the issue had not been fully explored in the lower courts.  And besides, other businesses and religious organizations had already accepted lower attendance numbers within their limited inside spaces.

Dayton Valley Calvary Chapel was told by the DC courts to consider what seems to be working elsewhere… and that is...mirroring the commercial services industries like restaurants, casinos and gyms to scale back or expand hours. Likewise, the number of worshipers during Sunday services (plural?), may require spreading worship services over whatever time there might be in any given Sunday or special services during the week.

So, in some ways, Calvary Chapel is back to having to modify its worship services schedule to get everybody “saved.” But with the rapid gearing up of Covid-19 vaccines, it shouldn’t take much time for our country to get back to their normal Sunday schedule  – and likewise, any other worship function throughout the week.  A little bit of patience should go a long way.  

We should climb out of this Covid-19 pandemic by late summer or early fall – then get back to normal in our church meetings by late fall.  That’s what many medical experts are predicting.  When we’re all vaccinated, we all can get back to normal.

No school for Wednesday, September 27th – Big Winter Blow!!

From Carson City Schools

As a result of the impending snowstorm, all schools in the Carson City School District will be closed for the entire day Wednesday, Jan. 27th. The National Weather Service is predicting one of the worst winter storms in recent years to hit our area. Periods of heavy snow and strong winds are expected tonight. The storm threatens to be disruptive to travel throughout the region.

Get out there and get your shopping done… MAJOR SNOW EVENTS FOR THE NEXT TWO WEEKS!!

        Here it comes!!

FROM THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE:

The next storm arrives Sunday evening through Monday, bringing more 
  snow and some breezy winds. A significant storm will impact the  
  region Wednesday and Thursday, with the potential for heavy snow  
  accumulation in the Sierra and even into western Nevada. Heavy 
  mountain snow may continue into the weekend.  
   
  SHORT TERM... 
       
 After a chilly morning, another round of snow begins this evening 
 (Sunday) bringing light to moderate snow accumulation across much of the 
  region and potential headaches for Monday morning`s commute. 
  Expect delays and slick driving conditions from the Sierra across 
  western and central Nevada. Changes from the previous forecast 
  were to lingering snow south of Highway 50 where northerly 
  flow will have an upslope component along terrain; especially  
  in southern Mono County which could see snow and snow showers 
  continuing into Monday evening now.  
   
  Snow amounts remain unchanged for the region: 1 to 4 inches across 
  western Nevada, 3 to 6 inches for Sierra valleys and the Tahoe 
  Basin, and 6 to 12 inches for higher elevations in the Sierra. 
  While winds will generally be much lighter than with average 
  storms for the region, cold air advection along and behind the 
  cold front will promote wind gusts around 30 mph. This could blow 
  around some snow causing lower visibility at times, especially  
  east of the Virginia Range mid and late Monday morning.
   
  LONG TERM.  Wednesday and into next weekend... 
   
  ...Major Winter Storm Expected Late Tuesday-Friday Morning... 
   
  After a sluggish start to our snow totals, winter  seems
  to want to happen all at once as a very active pattern is  
  expected to take hold into the start of February. The big storm in  
  all of this is targeting its peak strength in the late Tuesday into  
  late Thursday timeframe, with a solid 36-48 hour period of heavy snow  
  across the Sierra. Multiple feet of snow are expected in this  
  duration as an atmospheric river moisture source pushes into the  
  Sierra. While 3-4 feet of snow is what looking most favorable during  
  this stretch along the Sierra crest (1-3` lower Sierra basins),  
  there is potential on the high end to reach 5-6 feet along the crest.  
   Currently odds favor just south of the Tahoe Basin into Alpine and Mono counties. 
    
  A period of gusty southerly winds look to accompany this storm  
  mainly Tuesday night into Wednesday morning which will likely cause  
  whiteout conditions in areas of blowing snow. This will make travel  
  through the Sierra near impossible. If you need to travel across the  
  Sierra next week, Tuesday morning might be your only decent  
  opportunity to do so. After this storm tapers down on Friday,  
  additional reinforcing waves of moderate to heavy snowfall  
  are possible Saturday into the start of February.  
   
  Areas across western Nevada will also see potential for moderate to  
  heavy snowfall with this storm with intermittent periods of a  
  rain/snow mix during the afternoon hours on Wednesday and Thursday.  
  Foothill areas above 5000` should do well in terms of snowfall with  
  potential for 6-12". Lower valleys along US-395 could see around 6  
  inches broken up into periods of a couple inches at a time Wednesday  
  morning and then with a change over back to snow Wednesday night  
  into Thursday morning. As the main atmospheric river begins to pivot  
  back northward, western Nevada will become more shadowed out through  
  the day on Thursday. The main axis of the low shifts inland and will  
  begin to taper down snowfall through the day on Friday, but as  
  mentioned before, additional reinforcing waves look to to continue  
  through the weekend and into early the following week.

Bundle up...it'll be cold outside - possibly for the next two weeks.  

SNOW PACK, SNOW PACK, SNOW PACK!!!!  No drought around here!!

Many political differences just aren’t worth arguing over…go for the positive

AG Aaron Ford
NV Attorney General

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.
