Help is on the way!  After months of hard work, the American Rescue Plan has been signed into law, including key provisions I secured for Nevadans. Getting this virus under control and our economy back on track is my top priority, and I am confident that this new law will deliver for our state and the American people.
Here’s what you can expect from this coronavirus relief package to bring the pandemic to heel and get us back to normal:

  • Stimulus checks of up to $1,400
  • Vaccines, vaccines, vaccines – $20 billion for a national vaccination program
  • More funds to quickly and safely open schools
  • Tax credits to help 94% of Nevada’s children and cut child poverty in half nationwide
  • Rental and mortgage assistance
  • Continued unemployment benefits
  • 100% coverage of COBRA benefits, which I worked to include for Nevada workers
  • Expanded health care tax credits that can be used on Nevada Health Link
  • Protection of the benefits that retirees have earned and fought for
  • New loans and support for small businesses, restaurants, and other cornerstones of our neighborhoods

I’m going to make sure this help gets where it needs to go in our communities, and I’ll keep working in the Senate so that everyone in the Silver State benefits from a robust recovery. And if you need help, make sure you call my office. We’ll get right on it.

CCSO puttin’ it’s collective foot down on bad drivers

Speed Enforcement-CCSO

Excessive Speed – A Common and Deadly Factor in Crashes

In 2020 314 car crash fatalities were reported in Nevada, speeding and impairment were the leading cause of these fatalities. As of this press release, 48 fatalities have been reported in Nevada for 2021.

That number, sadly, continues to rise.

The Carson City Sheriff’s Office is joining forces with other Nevada Law Enforcement agencies to increase enforcement on speeding violations from March 15th through March 29th.

In Carson City, school zones, construction zones, neighborhoods, downtown business districts and country roads are all posted with specific speed limit signs. We continue to respond to crashes in all of these areas simply because drivers refuse to pay attention to speed limit signs and drive without regard to others. The excuses are never ending and they are never a valid reason for exceeding the posted speed limit. Be responsible, slow down, drive the speed limit and arrive safely.

The Carson City Sheriff’s Office remains dedicated to bringing the number of fatalities on our roadways to zero through increasing public awareness about the dangers of speeding. More information about safe driving and the state’s Zero Fatalities goal is available online at www.ZeroFatalitiesNV.com.

Fixin’ up Carson City parks…

Sonoma Park getting more than a facelift…

Ahhhh…much better!!

Sonoma Park, Turf Maintenance Closure and New Summer Hours

In an effort to rehabilitate the heavily used lawn areas at Sonoma Park, City staff will be reseeding thin areas and applying soil amendment; the park will be closed March 22 through April 13, 2021 to allow the new grass seed to properly germinate and thrive.

Beginning April 19th Sonoma Park will be closed every Monday morning until noon through early November for maintenance. The morning closure is necessary as it provides the opportunity for staff to mow and conduct maintenance tasks while ensuring the safety of park users. Sonoma Park gates will be locked weekly at dusk on Sunday evenings and the park will reopen when weekly maintenance procedures are completed.

For more information on Sonoma Park, visit www.carson.org/parks or email the Parks Operations Manager at dkastens@carson.org.

Sonoma Park is owned and managed by Carson City, through its Parks, Recreation and Open Space Department. Our mission is to provide exceptional parks, open space, and diverse recreational opportunities to enhance the quality of life in Carson City, while preserving our natural resources for future generations

Ya gotta learn exactly when to burn….

The Carson City Fire Department will allow open burning March 13th to April 4th.

The purpose of the open burn period is to provide residents an opportunity to dispose of accumulated weeds and yard debris. In order to make this a safe endeavor for those involved, the Carson City Fire Department will require a burn permit.

Permits can be obtained online at our website carsonfire.org. Click on the notice for “Open Burn” and it will take you to a form that you will need to print and have on your person when burning.

Due to the closing of our main office to the public, permits will NOT be available on a walk-in basis.

For additional questions or concerns, please call the Carson City Fire Department’s Fire Prevention Division at 887-2210, ext. 7145, 8a-5p, Monday through Friday.

Update from Carson City Schools…

In-Person Learning for Carson City 7-8 Graders, 4-days per week, to Begin March 23  

The Carson City School District School Board of Trustees voted unanimously to offer in-person, on-campus instruction to all seventh and eighth graders, four days a week, Tuesdays through Fridays. The first official day of this more traditional education model will begin at the start of the final fourth quarter, Tuesday, March 23rd. The district previously announced a return to four-days-per-week, in-person learning for 3rd to 6th grade students Jan. 19, 2021 and all Pre-K to 2nd graders Oct. 20th.  

“Students and families currently enrolled in the full-remote model at any school will continue to have the option to remain in the full-remote model if they choose,” said Richard Stokes, superintendent for the Carson City School District. “Hybrid students not interested in attending 4-days per week may elect to transition to full-remote learning. Further adjustments to school operations may be made if additional restrictions are removed.”  (more…)

A sequel to Keystone Crooks with weapons and bullets

Two armed men stormed an apartment on Woodside Drive Monday afternoon.  The two men ordered the occupants to turn over ten thousand dollars in valuables including weapons.  The occupants of the apartment told the armed men that they were holding up the wrong apartment and for them to leave – which they did – rather rapidly.

Perhaps figuring things out a little more clearly, the two armed men eventually showed up later that evening at another apartment on Woodside.  According to authorities Carson City Sheriff’s Deputies got wind of what was happening and made a B-line to the other apartment in the area – still close to the original incident location.  Deputies quickly figured out “who-was-who-and-what-was-what” over disputed property and the two original intruders were arrested.

Deputies booked both gunmen into the Carson City Jail where they were charged with home invasion and burglary among other charges.

NHP Investigating Fatal Crash on US-50 at Douglas County MM 3

NHP Investigating Fatal Crash on US-50 at Douglas County Mile Marker 3 – NHP photo

On Sunday Nevada Highway Patrol Troopers responded to a fatal crash involving three vehicles on US-50 at Douglas County mile marker 3.  Preliminary investigation shows that a silver 2015 Subaru Impreza was eastbound in the right lane on US-50 approaching a green 2001 Toyota Tacoma pickup. The Tacoma was traveling eastbound on US-50 in the left lane. The driver of the Subaru failed to maintain their travel lane and entered the left lane occupied by the Tacoma. The left front of the Subaru struck the right rear of the Tacoma. Both vehicles overturned and entered the westbound travel lanes. The Tacoma landed on the hood of a silver 1999 Toyota Corolla traveling westbound in the right lane.

The driver of the Toyota Tacoma pickup – Rafael Cortez, a 52-year-old Gardnerville resident – was declared deceased at the scene.

This crash is being investigated by the Nevada Highway Patrol Northern Command West Multi-Disciplinary Investigation and Reconstruction Team (M.I.R.T.)

Just because you got your second Covid shot doesn’t mean you’re home free…

The shot that cures

Have You Been Fully Vaccinated?

People are considered fully vaccinated:

  • 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, like the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
  • 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, like Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine

If it has been less than 2 weeks since your shot, or if you still need to get your second dose, you are NOT fully protected. Keep taking all prevention steps until your vaccine is circulating through your body.  That can take up to two to three weeks.  So you’re still on a short leash – and even then the Centers for Disease Control wants us to keep wearing our masks until at least Thanksgiving.
