HEY CARSON CITY!!!

                   Picture of children walking to school.

Carson City kids will be starting school soon.  Starting next week, August 16th, the Carson City Sheriff’s Office patrols will be working with an organization called Western Nevada Safe Routes to School and will keep up the patrols throughout the school year.  They’ll be reminding drivers as well as pedestrians (young and old) to be extremely careful when walking or driving through school zones.

Last, but not least, please remember ALL school zones in Carson City are 15 mph.  And if you violate that speed limit and you get a ticket, it’s going take a big chunk out of your Christmas shopping

Time To Get Your Chugger On!!

V&T Railroad
Crankin’ it back up Saturday, August 28th, 10am. Runs through October 31st. Tickets for sale at VTRailway.com

 

It’s been a year and a half since the last trip was made by the V&T Railroad.  But despite the continued explosion of the Covid-19 “plus” Delta variant the V&T Railroad officianados are going to fire the old train right back up and get back down to business.  Those who run the train say they’ll re-install roundtrip rides from Carson City to Virginia City starting Saturday, August 28th, departing at 10 a.m. The shortened season kick-off will be launched with a ceremony and festivities at Eastgate Depot in Carson City launching regular Saturday and Sunday trips through October 31, followed by the return of the Polar Express just in time for the Christmas holiday season.

And the deadly beat goes on…
