Spectrum has moved out of Carson City and across the county line into the Topsy Lane area where they now occupy a much larger, more welcoming facility specializing in cellphones, internet options, the long awaited 5G capacity as well as bill paying and other services. Spectrum’s new store hours are:
Monday-Wednesday, 10am – 8pm
Thursday, 10am – 6pm
Friday-Saturday, 10am – 8pm
Sunday, 12N – 5pm
Spectrum’s new location off Topsy Lane is west of Highway 395. Turn west on Topsy…go up to the signal light and turn left. Then take the first right turn. Spectrum will be off to your left. You can’t miss it.
CCARSON CITY SYMPHONY ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCES
RICHARD “RICKY” HUTTON
NEW DIRECTOR FOR CARSON CHAMBER SINGERS
Carson City Symphony Association is pleased to announce the appointment of Richard “Ricky” Hutton as Director of Carson Chamber Singers. His connection with the Carson Chamber Singers goes back to the summer of 2019, when he directed the Singers in the June Pops Party concert in Carson City and the July 4th concert in Genoa. During 2020, he also designed and produced two virtual performance projects with the group.
Hutton is in his fifth year as Choral Director at Spanish Springs High School, where he is the Fine Arts Department Chair. He served as an Interim Choral Director for the Reno Philharmonic Chorus, Artistic Director of the Reno Baroque Ensemble, and is the NMEA’s (Nevada Music Educators Association’s) Washoe Zone Representative.
Hutton holds a Master of Music in Choral Conducting degree, with distinction, from the prestigious Westminster Choir College of Rider University in Princeton, NJ. He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Music and Philosophy with a minor in Bioethics, magna cum laude, from Loyola University in Chicago.
The next Carson Chamber Singers’ virtual performance project includes two short, connected pieces, Songs from Silence by Elaine Hagenberg, and an Italian madrigal by Monteverdi. Hutton said, “Hagenberg dedicated her work to the choral community in hope of healing during times of silence and distance. It is very accessible and lovely. The Monteverdi madrigal, Longe da te cor mio (Far from you, my heart), has a similar ‘pining’ sentiment.”
Rehearsals begin Tuesday, January 26, on Zoom. Carson Chamber Singers information and registration/application form are available on the Symphony website at http://ccsymphony.com/ccsingers.htm or by calling the Carson City Symphony Association at 775-883-4154.
The 2020-2021 concert season is supported by grants from the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts, the Carson City Cultural Commission, and by private donations.
12noon: Lots of smoke coming up next to the golf course on the north side of Highway 50 off Arrowhead. It’s a control burn to reduce vegetation so close to the golf course. It’s that old saying, if you want fire prevention, light a fire.
12:11pm The smoke is dissipating.
Carson City, NV – Today, Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford released the following statement regarding the 2021 Inauguration:
“I am thrilled to officially congratulate our 46th President of the United States Joe Biden and 49th Vice President Kamala Harris on being sworn in to office. Last year was rife with trials and tribulations. This year provides an opportunity toward recovery, change, and unity.
Today’s peaceful transition of power, which is critical to our democracy, stands in contrast to events of recent weeks. But our Country persisted, and we just witnessed one of our most sacred traditions established to ensure that only the will of the people dictates our elected leadership.
On Monday, we celebrated the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King, who famously said: ‘We need leaders not in love with money but in love with justice. Not in love with publicity but in love with humanity.’ At a time when family and friends are here one day and gone the next due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and neighbors are divided against each other, we pray for the President to lead with love, justice and humanity.
We, too, must live our daily lives with love, justice and humanity, denouncing the spread of fear, hatred, and injustice. We must take care of each other during these challenging times. I encourage every individual to continue to wear their mask, receive the COVID-19 vaccine, and be kind to one another. The future of our nation depends on what we do right now, this year.”
