A protest rally erupts in gunfire in Las Vegas

Atty Gen. Aaron Ford

Attorney General Ford Issues Statement on Officer Shootings
During Local Protests

Las Vegas – Today, Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford issued the following statement on the recent officer-involved shootings that took place during local protests in the Las Vegas valley:

“Today I was heartbroken to hear of two officer involved shootings that took place last night in the Las Vegas valley. According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, one officer is in critical condition and the investigation remains ongoing. My family is praying for the families of those who were killed and for the recovery of those injured.

Across Nevada and this nation, people are scared, angry and in pain. Racial injustice has been part of this country’s history since before America was founded continues to this present day. But this country will not absolve its violent history with a violent future. Americans have made great strides towards equality because passionate people took the heat of their anger and used it to forge real change. Thousands of Nevadans have peacefully protested against racial injustice and I encourage those peaceful demonstrations and taking constructive action. Donate to a cause, volunteer with an organization you believe in, and participate in our elections. You may feel helpless right now, but in reality, you have the power here to drive the change we are all seeking for a more equal and just country. “

More information about the shootings and the ongoing investigation can be found on the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s website.

Outdoor watering schedule kicks in on Monday (never a watering day)

It’s that time of year….AGAIN. Summertime outdoor watering will be limited somewhat so residents and business owners don’t overdo it. It’s an annual reminder that watering every day is a BIG NO-NO. We live on the edge of a desert and we all have to behave like we understand.

Here’s the schedule: June 2nd is the actual first-of-the-week watering day of the season and will be through September 30th. Watering days – for ODD numbered addresses – are Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and for EVEN numbered addresses it’s Sunday, Wednesday and Friday. Watering is allowed in the morning up to 10am. Then turn it off. Watering can then resume after 6pm. Again, no watering on Mondays.

However, there is hand watering! Hand watering is allowed when flowers, shrubs and vegetables need it. But remember, don’t water when it’s too hot or too windy. Again all outside watering starts Tuesday, June 2nd and runs to the last day of September.

Kiwanis Meals-on-Wheels still needs our support so others may survive the plague of Covid-19

Tough times require tough volunteers to keep the most vulnerable among us alive and thriving. Carson City Kiwanis once again is calling on the Carson City Community to help them serve children, the elderly and disabled – those who are running out of ways to help themselves.

Carson City Kiwanis remains committed to its mission despite the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to keep the faith, Carson City Kiwanis has set up a link on its website to accept donations for the Meals on Wheels program. ALL proceeds will go to the  Meals on Wheels program in Carson City

Carson City Kiwanis asks our fellow Carson City citizens to donate at least $10. But for those who have weathered the Covid-19 plague, donations can be as high as $500. It’s an amount that goes a long way to help our community’s victims of the panemic that will be with us for at least a three to six more months. Many pharmaceutical research firms are getting closer and closer to creating several versions of vaccines to rid our nation and our world of this deadly virus.

In the meantime, we all can donate by going online at carsoncitykiwanis.square.site/product/meals-on-wheels-donation/4 and use your credit or debit card. Whether it’s $10 or $100 or more, you are helping your fellow human beings survive the worst viral invasion in many decades. We all must be life-boats for each other so we all may recover and once again celebrate life in our beautiful and welcoming Carson City.

This fundraiser will be held ongoing through June 7th at which time donation amounts will be totaled and donated to the Carson City Senior Citizen’s Center. Carson City Kiwanis is a an official non-profit charitable organization. Donations are eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions in accordance with Code section 170.

Please make checks payable to Carson City Kiwanis and write in the memo: Meals on Wheels. Checks can be sent to P.O. Box 922, Carson City, NV 89702-0922.

Family gathering with children decays into confrontations on Oxbow late Friday night

12 midnight – Disturbance at a home in the 2800 block of Oxbow Drive, directly south of Walmart off Lone Mountain.  There were reported arguments between family members and possibly those that weren’t family members.  There was a scramble by Carson City Deputy Sheriff’s to determine the location of the weapons that were said to be on the property.  The weapons were found by deputies.  The deputies settled down with family members and tried to get to the bottom of what happened.  It did not seem that anyone was injured in the commotion or what triggered it.  There were children in the house at the time of the incident.

Motorcycle hit by a car at Woodside and Desatoya

6:27pm –  A motorcyclist was hit pretty hard by a vehicle at Woodside and Desatoya.  The motorcycle rider was up and walking around but is bleeding pretty bad from his left hand.  He quickly took off running leaving his motorcycle behind.

6:30pm Reports from the scene say the motorcyclist appeared to be drunk and fled the scene.  He was described as a white male with black hair and wearing casual clothing.  Deputies can probably track him down by his license plate number, even though it’s an expired plate.

Busy morning for firefighters – stabbing at a prison and a building fire at the airport

Carson City Firefighters were dispatched to the Warm Springs Prison mid-morning on a report of an inmate being stabbed by another inmate.  The victim suffered multiple stab wounds.  Care Flight landed and picked up the victim and rushed him to Renown in Reno.  No word on his condition.

Inmate with multiple stab wounds is loaded aboard a Care Flight air ambulance at Warms Springs Prison

Then later in the morning a fire broke out inside a Carson City Airport storage building.  A tall, black column of smoke rose up high in the sky directly north of the Airport Fire Station….so firefighters had a quick jump on it, but it appeared that a lot of damage to the building and its contents may have happened anyway.  No injuries reported.  No cause yet released.

Care Flight lifts-off bound for Renown in Reno.

Then within minutes a fire broke out at the Carson-Tahoe Airport. A storage building immediately north of the Airport Fire Station began releasing a tall black column of smoke as the contents of a rented building went up in flame. Firefighters quickly shot a lot of water onto the fire and it was out within 15 minutes. Damage to the building and contents was considerable. No cause yet determined.

West side of the burning building. Just earlier dark black smoke was sent high in the air over the airport.

Firefighters wrapping their quick assault on the blaze. Cause of the fire not released yet.

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.
