In Nevada, rental assistance for low income renters and struggling businesses strained – to say the least

Corona Virus
It’s raining poverty in Nevada…

Due to postponed rent payments to home and business landlords caused by the Corona Virus, another economic disaster is looming for thousands of Nevada families and small businesses.  Not long ago, most Americans received one-time government checks for $1,200 to help struggling families.  But by now that money is long gone.  And because Nevada’s economy is still far from healthy, hunger and homelessness are beginning to rear their merciless heads.  In September landlords will be given permission to evict a flood of families who will find themselves pushing shopping carts on the streets – by the hundreds of thousands – if the federal government doesn’t step in and issue another series of “rescue checks” to all Americans as it did earlier in the summer.

The state of Nevada has received $50 million dollars in federal “rent assistance” funds for struggling Nevada families. But offering just $50 million is like using a squirt gun to put out a raging fire. State officials admit the money won’t go far but they’re going to ensure that the most needy are given some form of priority. But arithmetic being arithmetic, the money will be distributed and spent, leaving Nevada back on square one. The same will be happening in all 50 states.

The situation begs a more systematic aid program which can only be directed by Washington DC. That’s where American money is printed. Guaranteed income for all low to lower middle class families, along with rigid market price controls, appears to be the only way out of our vicious, relentless Covid-19 disaster.

Amazon Freight Driver nods off, crashes at the CC/Douglas County line

A trucker hauling a big load of Amazon products reportedly fell asleep at the wheel just before midnight Monday night.  The driver lost control of his northbound rig on 395 just coming in to Carson City.  The truck went sideways – the driver and cab portion of the truck went up the hillside while the rear trailer slid sideways – everything coming to rest aimed southeast.  The driver wasn’t injured but his pride and truck career might be in jeopardy.

Northbound Amazon freightliner left northbound 395 just shy of the Carson City line.

The driver told Douglas County Firefighters that he fell asleep at the wheel.

The momentum of the crash pushed the truck cab up the hill.

Firefighters checked for leaking fuel. Didn’t appear to be any.

Highway Patrol officer checked the driver. Shook up but not injured.

Covid-19 on the prowl…but not too much in Carson City – But be careful! Mask UP!!

Carson City dodged the first bullet – but for how long?
 
As aggressive testing continues and people are taking advantage of the relaxed restrictions after having been cooped up for so long, one wonders how long the new “freedoms” will last.   
 
The California governor has just ordered the shutdown of all indoor dining in all 58 counties, making it again difficult for those restaurants without a means to have outside dining to serve customers other than through take-out.   Our governor has closed bars not serving food in 10 counties effective last Friday stating that the situation will continue to be monitored and could extend to other gathering places if the number of COVID-19 cases continue to rise.  We may never get out of Phase 2.  
 
The health community is saying “wear masks” – please!
 
There’s not a person we’ve met that is enjoying wearing a mask when in public spaces, but according to health officials, masks are necessary to control the spread.  That means employees and the public MUST wear a mask to do business or turn away customers.   All the customer service tips we’ve learned have gone by the wayside.  Employees are now REQUIRED to become enforcers and that can lead to unwanted altercations.  Law enforcement nationwide has declined to use their powers to enforce mask wearing.  Those on the new “front line” are not at all happy with their new role, but the repercussions could be devastating. Some are not wearing masks due to political reasons. 
Beware the OSHA inspector
 
Related to the blurb above is Emergency Declaration #024 issued on June 24thstating:
  • “NV OSHA shall enforce all violations of its guidelines, protocols, and regulations promulgated pursuant to this Directive.”

What does this means?  If you are serving customers who do not wear a mask, you can be cited.  A second citation could cost you your business.

For your reference and reminder, please click here to see the OSHA updated guidelines (Link)

Declaration of Emergency Directive 024 (6/24/2020)

City staff creates “wear masks” posters – free to businesses
 
We are hoping to look somewhat uniform in our message to customers to please wear a mask for their sake and ours.  Instead of the typed or handwritten messages seen all over town, you are welcome to pick up FREE posters to place outside your place of business asking customers to please wear masks or risk being turned away.   Here’s the art (Poster 1) (Poster 2The size for each poster is approximately: 11″ x 17″. Come by the Chamber office to pick up your posters. Call ahead to allow us to have them ready:  882-1565.
 
Restaurants: Got space for a few outdoor tables?
 
There are city regulations regarding outdoor dining and we want to remind you that you must petition for an “encroachment permit.”  At this week’s Board of Supervisor’s meeting, encroachment permits and other issues will be discussed to try to assist restaurants  in their battle to stay solvent during this time of uncertainty.  Outdoor dining and take-out is still acceptable; indoor dining may soon be closed if the numbers continue to rise.
 
Necessary supplies to battle COVID-19 spread are still hard to obtain
 
Whether for business or home use, it’s hard to find PPE and sanitizers.  And, if you can find it, the cost is high, thus increasing the cost of doing business.

We are working with the City to use some of their CARES Act funding to pay for needed items for businesses to remain in compliance.

We have sent out a survey to our member businesses to determine whether the businesses can obtain these supplies – no strings attached. (Link)

If you did not receive this online survey, please contact us at 882-1565 and we can take it over the phone.

“They’re treating up like animals…” ICE detention immigrants….

Coronavirus is spreading through tightly-packed ICE detention facilities, threatening immigrants, guards, and communities. Sign the petition: urge Congress to investigate the COVID-19 response in ICE detention facilities.
Over 2,700 immigrants in ICE custody have tested positive for coronavirus.
And Yahoo News reports that at the Adelanto Detention Center, ICE is simply spraying disinfectant multiple times a day in an unventilated facility:
“The guards have started spraying this chemical everywhere, all over everything, all the time. It causes a terrible reaction on our skin,” one of the detainees said, adding, “When I blow my nose, blood comes out. They are treating us like animals. One person fainted and was taken out, I don’t know what happened to them. There is no fresh air.”
Patricia Ackerman is running for Congress to end family separation and inhumane treatment of migrants in detention. Stand with her today!
Thanks for standing up.
Patricia Ackerman for Congress

Vehicle exiting northbound I-580 at Fairview misses the curve on the exit and rolls violently

Accident on I-580’s northbound offramp at Fairview – car didn’t make the exit ramp’s curve and rolled.  Solo lady driver was badly injured.  She was Careflighted to Renown in Reno.  The off-ramp has been the scene of many ‘brisk” exits from northbound I-580.  Having a curve in the middle of the exit has contributed to a series of accidents.  And they’re becoming more and more common.

Vehicle with lady driver exits northbound I-580 at Fairview – loses control on a curve on the exit ramp.

Vehicle rolled, trapping the lady driver inside.

Air Ambulance flies the injured driver to Renown in Reno. Serious injuries.

There are an increasing number of these kinds of exit crashes on northbound I-580 at Fairview. Vehicles driving northbound on the freeway are doing the speed limit but as they exit they don’t see a rather unexpected curve in the exit ramp and drivers lose control and take out highway lights and signs and wind up rolling uphill and eventually off the exit pavement. Cars, pickups, motorcycles and more are crashing on this exit curve to Fairview Drive. A re-examining of the engineering of the ramp might be something to look in to.

Fire out Six Mile Canyon, east of Virginia City, north of Dayton

1:45pm  All the sirens were fire trucks headed east into Lyon County.  Report of a wildfire off Six Mile Canyon Road.

2:30pm  Fire growing very fast – estimated at 120 acres and very windy.  Various aircraft are dive bombing the fire rather hard.  Fire mostly out by 5pm.  Overnight firewatch likely.

Cause of the fire is rumored to be a stray bullet or bullets from the shooting range southwest of the main fire.  The fire appears to have started very close to the shooting range and strong winds blew it north-northeast.  No homes damaged thanks to quick scrambling by firefighters.

Bucket choppers try to slow the fire down….

Winds whip the flames
