The Carson City Sheriff’s Office is hoping local Carson City residents might have seen this missing young lady.
Lindsie Newman was last seen Monday in Carson City. Lindsie told associates that she was going to help a friend. Lindsie left her residence and has not been seen since.
Lindsie sent several messages to friends stating that she needed money for a bus ticket. It is unknown what Lindsie needed the bus ticket for or any clue as to her ultimate destination.
The Carson City Sheriff’s Office has listed Lindsie as a missing and endangered person. The Carson City Sheriff’s Office is asking for any possible leads as to her whereabouts.
Lindsie stands 5-foot 4-inches. She weighs 115 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes. Lindsie has a tattoo of vines on her lower back. Lindsie is thought to be in the northwest Nevada area.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Lindsie Newman is asked to call Sergeant Acosta at 775-283-7888, Lieutenant Gonzales at 775-283-7850, Carson City Dispatch at 775-887-COPS (2677), or Secret Witness at 775-322-4900. You can remain anonymous. Lindsie’s family is probably worried sick. Keep an eye and ear out for her.

Nevada State Treasurer Zach Conine announced Monday that the state’s short-term rental assistance program for Nevadans suffering financial hardship due to COVID-19 are now taking applications.
Rental assistance funds will be offered as a grant to eligible Nevada tenants and the grants are not required to be paid back. Funds will be awarded first-come-first-serve and will be paid directly to landlords on behalf of tenants.
In order to be eligible for funds, applicants must be a tenant in Nevada with a current active lease in which back-rent is owed. Applicants must be able to prove financial hardship due to COVID-19 – loss of employment, reduction in work hours, and/or reduction in wages. Those applying for grants must have a gross annual household income at or below 120% of Area Median Income. Applicants can learn whether they qualify. Applicants must not already be receiving Federal Voucher Housing Assistance and have no more than $3,000 cash on hand. Those who have been financially wounded by Covid-19 and have missed rent payments are encouraged to visithousing.nv.govto begin the application process.
Applicants will be directed to a housing agency based on their county of residence. After applying, tenants will be notified if they’re been approved and funds will be forwarded to the tenant’s landlord. Funds will be provided on a first-come-first-serve basis.
It comes as no surprise that state officials anticipate there will be more demand for this program than they have money for. Therefore they need the federal government to step up and provide additional support to tenants hammered by COVID-19.
More information about the program can be found in bothEnglishandSpanishor by calling 2-1-1.
I hope you all are safe and well during this time of uncertainty! I apologize for the lengthy email, but I have many items on which to update you all.
There are 106 days until the general election on November 3rd. Patricia has been busy making virtual appearances and phone calls whenever possible encouraging voters to volunteer and donate to the campaign.
We are happy to report Patricia has received two more big endorsements— The Northern Nevada Labor Council and The National Association of Social Workers.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Time-Sensitive Voter Information for those of you who may have friends or relatives living abroad. This website outlines important absentee ballot voting: https://www.votefromabroad.org
Our phone bank volunteers have been busy . . . we have made hundreds of calls and we are constantly training new volunteers. I want to congratulate Greg M. and Hannalea W. They are leading the pack of phone bankers with over 300 calls each just in the past couple weeks. As I’ve said before, phone banking is the best tool (besides canvassing) to reach voters.
We will soon launch a peer text banking program. We need to reach out to over 200,000 voters, and those voters’ phone numbers cost the campaign thousands of dollars. We will also begin polling efforts in late August or early September.
Volunteers have been busy delivering Ackerman yard signs all over Nevada’s Congressional District #2. We have just purchased 500 more yard signs and a number of bumper stickers. We need to raise over $5000 to cover those costs. We will also soon be sending out direct-mail campaign ads to Nevada voters, and soon Patricia will be featured in television ads. The campaign will also need to raise money for the cost to “buy into” the national democratic coordinated campaign. These are extremely expensive items.
As you can see, there are many costs involved for the campaign to meet its goals and responsibilities as we gear up for the election. We encourage all of you to relay those facts to voters whenever possible and ask voters to donate whatever they are able. Mark Amodei has over seven (7) times our war chest, so we can’t be complacent. We outraised him during the last three (3) months, but we still trail in total raised. So please continue to donate if you are able and encourage friends to do the same.
July 18, 2020 – The Las Vegas Associated Press reported the following:
“Democrat Ackerman outraises Republican Amodei in recent months. But Ackerman trails Amodei in overall fundraising
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada’s three incumbent Democrats in Congress are outraising their Republican opponents as they seek reelection this year, according to campaign finance reports filed this week.
Nevada’s fourth member of the House, Republican Rep. Mark Amodei, was outraised by his new Democratic opponent Patricia Ackerman in recent months, but she has a large fundraising gap to try to close. Amodei has seven times as much ready in his campaign account than she does.”
The article is posted on Patricia’s Facebook page. Please share the article on your social media platforms.
Things you can continue to do to assist the campaign in meeting its goals in this social distancing universe:
Volunteer for phone bank shifts
Volunteer for text bank shifts
Write Letters to The Editor in your local newspapers
Display yard signs and bumper stickers
“Like” and “Share” Patricia’s Facebook posts to your social media platforms
Sign up to hold a Virtual House Party between Patricia and your friends and neighbors (contact us for more information)
Remember, every email or post you read, volunteer action you take, and donation you make are acts of fighting back and fighting along-side Patricia. Ultimately, we are building a campaign that can beat Mark Amodei so we can turn Nevada Blue!
On behalf of Patricia and the entire campaign, thank you all so much for all you do! Keep up the fight! We can do this! Be Safe. Be Well.
Ackerman statement supporting the HEROES Act, condemning Amodei’s failure to support Nevadans
Carson City, July 18 – Patricia Ackerman, Democratic candidate for Nevada Congressional District 2, released a statement today in response to Rep. Mark Amodei’s vote against the passage of the HEROES Act.
The HEROES Act will provide funding and assistance to state, local and tribal governments, helping to reduce the impact that the COVID-19 outbreak has had on our communities.
“We are being faced today with devasting repercussions from this virus. The HEROES Act will continue to support our essential workers and provide much needed relief to our working families, while also helping our local governments to better track and fight this disease,” stated Ackerman.
This bill will also provide critical support to the USPS, fund voting by mail, and extend the moratorium on evictions. An upwards of $8.7 billion would be given to Nevada over the next two years, yet Rep. Mark Amodei voted NO to this essential funding. Calling many of the issues addressed in this bill “partisan,” Amodei stated that the HEROES Act, “will not accomplish anything in terms of getting America back on track.”
In response to Amodei’s statements, Ackerman replied: “We must stop making critical issues partisan, and instead recognize that the longer we make this a divisive political issue, the longer our country and our state, suffers.”

Gov. Sisolak: States need federal help to weather the pandemic
Governor Sisolak joins chorus of states asking for federal help to return our nation to normalcy. The federal government has more than enough money. They print it – remember?
Today, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak issued the following statement after the Nevada State Assembly introduced a joint resolution urging the President and Congress to provide flexible funding for state and local governments for budget shortfalls as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Due to COVID-19, state and local governments need robust and direct federal funding to help rebuild the economy and maintain essential services. I stand with the Nevada Legislature in their efforts to urge the President of the United States and Congressional Leadership to provide flexible funding to help fill our budget shortfall.”
“Without additional federal assistance, a slow recovery, or one in which Nevada lags behind the nation, the current economic and fiscal crises facing the State will be worsened. The time for flexible federal funding that can be used to replace billions in lost revenue is now.”
“I understand the difficult choices in front of the Nevada Legislature. Due to the economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are forced to make impossible decisions regarding funding critical public health, education and more. Congressional leadership must act to help us restore devastating reductions being made to fill this historic shortfall.”
“I want to thank the members of Nevada’s Federal Delegation who are tirelessly advocating for additional federal assistance for our State.”
The Carson City Sheriff’s Office Investigation Division is asking for the public’s help in identifying three suspects involved in a shooting that occurred Thursday morning in the area of Stanford Drive.
At approximately 8:11am the Sheriff’s Office was notified of a wounded patient at the Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center Emergency Room with a gunshot wound to the hand.
Upon arrival, Deputies were informed by the victim that three unknown persons forced their way into his home in the 1500 block of Stanford Drive – the victim was instantly shot during a confrontation. The unknown assailants fled immediately. The victim transported himself to the Hospital.
The assailants are described as three males in their 20s. Two were wearing dark colored clothing and the other was in light colored clothing. All three suspects were described to be in hoodies and wearing face coverings.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact the Carson City Sheriff’s Office at 887- COPS (2677).
The Carson City Sheriffs Office will be joining forces with other Nevada Law Enforcement Agencies from July 20th thru August 3rd to be on the lookout for distracted drivers.
Since January 1st of this year, Carson City Deputies have issued more than 100 citations for distracted driving. This statistic doesn’t include the citations issued for failing to maintain your lane or speeding or running stops signs while being distracted. Distracted driving isn’t just about talking on your cell phone, but, can include eating, reading a book, watching videos, putting on make-up, playing with your dog (or cat, yes, we’ve seen that and other strange things) while driving that can ultimately cause a crash. We must all remember that while driving it is our responsibility to make driving the number one focus. It’s about being responsible and safely arriving at your destination.
Put your phone down, read that book, watch that video and play with your pets when you are not driving! Pay attention to the road, other drivers and pedestrians. By keeping these tips in mind, all of us have a better chance of arriving safely at our summer destinations.
Nevada OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) has lowered the boom on stores that allow customers inside their establishments while not wearing facemasks. Governor Steve Sisolak, like so many other governors around the country, kept getting reports that stores were allowing “maskless” customers inside to shop – and in so doing allowing the spread of the Corona Virus to expand throughout Nevada by those who don’t even know they’re carrying the virus.
Governor Sisolak finally had enough. Working with Nevada OSHA, the stores started getting fines in the thousands of dollars. Here’s a list of some of the heavier fines, according to Nevada OSHA:
RAC Guns & Ammo LLC: 3030 Mill Street, Reno, $3,643
Winco Foods: 2855 Northtowne Lane, Reno, $7,374
Wal-Mart Store #1648: 3770 U.S. Highway 395, N. Carson City, $8,675
Wal-Mart Store #3408 : 3200 Market Street, Carson City, $8,675
The Home Depot: 921 Jacks Valley Road, Carson City, $8,675
Grocery Outlet: 7 Dayton Village Pkwy, Dayton, $6,073
Walmart Neighborhood Market: 6151 West Lake Mead Blvd., Las Vegas, $13,494
Governor Sisolak,, like other governors around the country, have grown weary of those who maintain that “I have a right to not wear a mask if I so choose. It’s a free country!” Again, it’s like demanding one’s right to do 50 mph in a school zone – you’re endangering other peoples’ lives. Endangering…other…peoples’…lives. And thousands upon thousands of people are simply refusing to obey the law. Therefore the stores are being told to not let people inside their establishments without a proper facemask. Those stores who let them in get hit hard with big fines.
There is such a thing as REALITY. And the reality is that the Covid-19 virus is spreading like a prairie fire across the country. Thousands of people are dying because those who have the virus – BUT DON’T KNOW IT – are feeding the flames. Simple as that.
Instead of protecting our lives, the Trump administration is focused on revenge. CNN reports:
The White House is making a concerted effort to discredit Dr. Anthony Fauci as he becomes increasingly vocal about his concerns over reopening the country amid a national surge in coronavirus cases. The moves to undercut Fauci come just days after he gave an unvarnished look at his relationship with President Donald Trump, including that they have not spoken in weeks.
We must defeat Trump and his allies in Congress, like Rep. Mark Amodei. Will you stand with Patricia’s campaign today?
(Carson City, NV)- Carson City Health and Human Services (CCHHS) is reporting fifteen new positive cases and no additional recoveries ofCOVID-19 in the Quad-County region. This brings the total number of cases to 494, with 338 recoveries and eight deaths, 148 cases remain active.

With permission from Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak, Nevada’s cities and towns can now avoid illegally crowded restaurants by moving some of their lunch and dinner tables outdoors onto sidewalks including downtown Carson City…with six foot spacing between tables of course. The outside seating must be taken back inside the restaurants past a certain time. Signage will be more liberally allowed.
Supervisors also learned that getting our kids back in school will be a chore. Here in Carson City there will be two major groups of students – one group attending two days a week and a second group doing the same. No school on Mondays. After-school arrangements are being explored including using the “Mac” gym facility in Carson City next to I-580. There are other facilities being considered.
The final version of all this is expected to be adopted by the school board on July 27th. We’ll see how it works out.
One bright light in all this is renown immunologist Dr. Anthony Fauci and his medical associates from the National Institutes of Health. They may have already hit the ball out of the park on developing an anti-Covid-19 vaccine. The group has been working morning, noon and night for months to develop a vaccine that will help give us all our lives back. So far, tests on their vaccine-in-training performed very well when it was injected into over 40 volunteers who already had dead Covid-19 virus circulating in their bodies. Dr. Fauci said the anti-bodies in the new vaccine ferociously attacked the dead viruses which thoroughly impressed Dr. Fauci and his associates. The big test involving 30,000 human testees is expected to take place within two to three months. If that test proves as effective as the first one, we’ll see the world re-open widely again. There are also other “vaccines-in-training” around the world. Hopefully we’ll get our lives and our world back by next Summer, in not late Spring.

Investigators were on scene on Stafford Drive throughout the morning gathering evidence. Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact the Carson City Sheriff’s Office at 887- COPS (2677).
The Carson City Sheriff’s Office received information this morning that a female residing at the 1600 block of Airport Road had taken drugs in October 2019 to miscarry her pregnancy. She miscarried and placed the dead fetus is her refrigerator/freezer. Officers arrived on scene where the mother confirmed the information received. ANGULO MALIKA, 22 was taken into custody. Her two year old daughter was placed in protective custody.
Detectives retrieved the fetus from the freezer. The fetus was transferred to the Washoe County Medical Examiners Office for an autopsy.
Investigators have been on scene at Airport Road throughout the morning processing the area. Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact the Carson City Sheriff’s Office at 887- COPS (2677)..
Vehicle slowly entering the intersection from Nye, collided with the black sedan.
One young woman was transported to Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center Wednesday evening after her black sedan narrowly missed an elderly man in a wheel-chair in a crosswalk. He was crossing Airport Road at Nye Lane. An SUV entered the intersection from Nye and collided with the sedan. The elderly man in the crosswalk narrowly made it to the other side of the road.
According to witnesses in the SUV they said they were stopped on Nye Lane waiting to turn left onto Airport Road. They saw the elderly man in the wheelchair venture out onto the crosswalk. The driver of the SUV turned south, away from the crosswalk, and onto Airport. Suddenly the black sedan, which they said was speeding, roared up, dodged the man in the wheelchair and hit the SUV. Driver of the sedan was injured and transported to CTRMC. Fortunately no one else was injured.
Carson City Schools, K-12, will be opening near the end of August and from there it gets really bumpy. Students will be alternating between schools and home – two days in school, two days at home. No school Saturday, Sunday or Monday.
The odd schedule reflects the fact that normally full classrooms would likely become dangerous, if not deadly, by squeezing 30 to 40 students in a classroom. A perfect way to spread the Corona Virus. The tentative school plan is to have one group of students attend Tuesdays and Thursdays – the other group attending Wednesdays and Fridays. Pre-K and kindergarten will be in school a full 5 day week. There will be everyday take-home school work with hopefully some help from mom and/or dad. Videos will also help the students at home with their assignments. Special arrangement will have to be made for students whose families don’t have internet.
Arranging bus rides to school will be a logistical challenge. School officials have to determine which students will ride buses and which students won’t ride buses. But suffice to say, if it takes a bus to get a student back and forth to school, it’ll happen.
Then there’s the issue of child care outside of school. Some will likely wind up at the Boys and Girls Club as well at private facilities around the city. More details yet to follow.
As for lunches, the school district will continue to provide free and reduced cost meals. Mondays there is no school – BUT – families can pick up students lunches on mondays.
The School Board met July 14th with lots of families, teachers and school administrators to hash out what the school schedules will be. The school board meeting helped to outline some of the major elements – but not all of them. School officials are continuing to plan school days straight through December and into January. These and other plan refinements should be finalized at the next School Board Meeting on July 28th, 7-10pm, 1402 W. King, Carson City.
