Something there is that doesn’t like small houses…

Residents living in the Center Drive and Clearview Drive area who have large lots and big horses, tried to get the Board of Supervisors today to halt plans for a contractor to build smaller homes on smaller lots right across the street from those larger homes.  The residents said it’s bad planning to have large lot properties on one side of the road and small lot suburban homes on the other.  The residents told the Board of Supervisors it’s bad planning – and even went so far as to claim that the move would be illegal based on the land use laws of the city.  They said there should be areas where the houses get gradually bigger or gradually smaller – not big on one side of the street and small on the other. One resident said the city’s master plan doesn’t condone such dramatic shifts in housing densities back to back.  One neighbor even went so far as to claim such a move would be illegal under the city’s land use laws.

However…Carson City’s Planning Department said the proposed 24 home subdivision square in the faces of their large lot neighbors is quite legal.  However, the large-lot neighbors quickly disagreed and even hinted at seriously questioning the planning department’s position.  In the end the Supervisors approved the new subdivision for the 24 homes.  We’ll see what happens next.

Sen. Bernie Sanders: “Medicare for All long, long overdue…”

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and over a hundred federal lawmakers have thrown down the hammer on America’s medical system.  Sanders says “Medical Care for All” is practiced in many countries around the world – but not in the United States.  “It’s profits over people, and way too many of our people are dying everyday,” Sanders says.  “Millions of Americans cannot afford the costs of medical care – many walking into a hospital, looking at the charges, and then turning around and leaving because they don’t have the money.  Many return home to die because they don’t have the resources to get well in the richest country on the planet. “That’s obscenely inhumane,” Sanders says.

Help protect yourself from fraud and theft

Criminals often call and represent themselves as agents from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or the Social Security Administration (SSA) and threaten to freeze assets or claim your social security benefits have been compromised. Neither the IRS nor the SSA will contact you by telephone and direct you to provide your personal identification information or banking information, nor will they threaten to arrest you for failing to provide them an immediate form of payment. Criminals also pose as representatives of a utility company and threaten to terminate service unless the victim pays them immediately. Another popular fraud is the sweepstakes fraud where the thief calls and claims you have won a large sum of money, but in order to collect your prize you need to pay taxes on the winnings. Payment is usually requested in the form of gift cards such as, Green Dot or Apple iTunes cards, or the thief will ask for your credit card number or checking account information. Whether the thief is representing themselves as a representative of the government, law enforcement officer or distant relative needing emergency assistance, always verify who you are speaking with and do not provide your personal banking or identification information over the phone.

Thieves look for easy targets, remember to lock your residence and vehicle doors to help secure your personal property. Do not leave valuable items or your personal banking and identification information inside your vehicle, in plain view.
For more information on how to protect yourself from theft and fraud, go to the Carson City Sheriff’s Office website https://www.carson.org/government/departments-g-z/sheriff-s-office and click on “Divisions” “Investigations” “scams” and “identity theft”. If you are a victim of identity theft click on the Identity Theft Victim’s Packet to download a resource guide that will help you through the process of reporting the identity theft.

Take a corner too fast you wind up in the drink…

Car didn’t make it around the curve…

A young couple were lucky to survive a high hazard accident on Parkland Street, just off Saliman Monday afternoon.  From the skid marks and damage to the car, it appears the couple was headed southbound on Parkland and didn’t make the sharp curve onto Cardinal.  The vehicle started going sideways on the curve, hit the curb, went down an embankment and into a drainage ditch where it finally stopped.  Had it kept going the vehicle could have landed upside down in the water-filled ditch.  And an upside down car in a ditch is hard to get out of.

Car jumped the curb and down into the ditch…

Sheriff’s deputies were analyzing the skid marks and impact damage to the curb.  Both occupants were up and walking around.  A traffic citation seemed to be in the works.

#Why I Teach Carson Video Highlights – Teaching during a Pandemic 

#WhyITeachCarson Video Highlights Teaching in a Pandemic  

The Carson City School District recently added a new video to a playlist at CarsonCitySchools.com that highlights how incredible the teaching profession is as well as the many challenges faced and rewards that come from being an educator.

#WhyITeachCarson is a visual concept that features the reasons and motivations behind teaching and provides insight into the craft of education. Alyssa Jensen, a third grade teacher at Mark Twain Elementary School, is the fifth teacher to be featured from the school district.  

This specific video discusses some of the challenges associated with teaching in a pandemic and how eager and “hungry” the students are to physically be in school and learn with their friends and from their teacher(s). Ms. Jensen also talks about her experience being a product of the Carson City School District and which teacher helped influence her desires to make a career in teaching.  

The school district hopes parents, families and community members and partners are inspired and enjoy this inside look into an everyday setting of one of their classrooms. Please click here to view the video. 

Pre-K, Kindergarten & Annual Update Registrations begins Tuesday, April 6

Pre-K, Kindergarten & Annual Update Registrations begins Tuesday, April 6

Carson City, Nv — The Carson City School District (CCSD) is asking parents to mark their calendars for Tuesday, April 6, when all Pre-K, Kindergarten, new andreturning student updates and registrations will begin. Pre-K and kindergarten registration traditionally has been the first week of March. The district is streamlining and simplifying the registration and annual student update process by consolidating a previously multiple-date schedule.  

CCSD utilizes Infinite Campus (IC) for their student data information system. Parents and families of new and current students will utilize online registration through IC to provide and update student information. 

“To help dispel parent and family confusion of when they needed to register their child or children for school or conduct annual updates in Infinite Campus, we decided to consolidate all registrations and annual student information updates to begin the first week of April,” said Tasha Fuson, associate superintendent of Educational Services for the Carson City School District. “Rather than have our parents tediously keep track of a multiple dates, we felt it would be easier for them to take care of all their student(s) registration and IC update needs when the system opens April 6.”  

Through IC, the secure online enrollment system on the district’s website, parents are able to verify all student demographic, emergency and medical information for their child prior to the start of the new school year. The school sites need the most up-to-date family, address, phone, medical information and permissions from parents for students so that they can participate in field trips and other school-related activities as well as have media releases for photographs or videos of them participating in various school functions. 

Children who will be 5-years-old by Sept. 30, 2021, are eligible for Kindergarten for the coming 2021-2022 school year. Full-day Kindergarten classes are offered at all elementary schools in Carson City. Contact your neighborhood school:

  • Empire Elementary, 775-283-1100 
  • Fremont Elementary, 775-283-1200

Additionally, children who will be 4-years-old by Sept. 30, 2021, and whose family qualifies under the federal household income guidelines, may apply for the district’s Pre-Kindergarten program for the 2021-2022 school year.
