NV Energy: Please conserve power tonight between 6 and 9pm


NV Energy Asks Customers to Conserve Electricity today and tomorrow between 6 and 9 p.m.

NV Energy is urging its electric customers in both northern and southern Nevada to conserve electricity today and tomorrow between 6 and 9 p.m. in order to offset energy supply issues caused by record-breaking heat and wildfires affecting electric transmission lines throughout the western United States.

Conservation is the best way to reduce strain on the local power grid.

Effective measures to conserve energy during this time period include:

  • Turn off lights
  • Turn off pool pumps
  • Unplug appliances not in use
  • Avoid using large electrical appliances such as dishwashers, washing machines and electric clothes dryers
  • Adjust the thermostat to 78 degrees or higher to reduce the use of air conditioning during this time, barring any medical issues, and use ceiling fans to cool people and pets. Pre-cool your home prior to 6 p.m.
  • Keep the refrigerator and freezer closed as much as possible
  • Close window coverings to keep the heat out
  • Do not charge electric vehicles between 6 and 9 p.m.

Still trying to Keep Tahoe Bue!

Lake Tahoe may be getting a facelift…after decades of being loved to death…

The University of California-Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center and Tahoe Regional Planning Agency released findings from the annual Lake Tahoe Clarity Report, which showed average clarity – or how deep a 10” white plate can be lowered into Lake Tahoe before it becomes invisible from the surface – of 62.9 feet for the year 2020.

2020’s annual average tracks closely with measurements from the past decade, illustrating that the League’s efforts to stop the steep downward trend in clarity loss from the 2000s have been successful. On the flip side of the coin, clarity is still declining, meaning major progress is needed to Keep Tahoe Blue.

The following is a statement regarding the 2020 Lake Tahoe Clarity Report from League to Save Lake Tahoe CEO Darcie Goodman Collins, Ph.D.:

“The latest Clarity Report shows us once again that we need to take bold action to slow climate change’s negative impact on Lake Tahoe’s clarity, ecology and natural beauty.

Tahoe’s surface waters are getting warmer, acting like a seal that prevents mixing between layers in the Lake’s water column. So when fine-grained particles of dirt and pavement from overused roads flow into the Lake during a rainstorm, they get trapped near the surface, hurting the Lake’s clarity. Warm, nutrient-filled waters are also the perfect habitat for harmful aquatic invasive species to spread.

If Tahoe was untouched by humans, the Lake’s natural pollution filters – its marshes, meadows and wetlands – would strip those fine-grained particles out of the water before reaching the Lake. But decades of short-sighted development paved over those natural filters. And Tahoe’s roads are constantly bombarded with traffic, chewing up the pavement into fine particles that enter the Lake as stormwater pollution.

To Keep Tahoe Blue – and therefore clear – the League is working across the public and private sector to:

  • Restore Tahoe’s wetlands to revitalize their natural pollution-fighting function and build Tahoe’s resilience to climate change;
  • Put aquatic invasive species in check, so Tahoe’s shallows don’t turn into a murky, green mess;
  • Repair, repave or replace Tahoe’s ailing roads with modern infrastructure on a Basin-wide scale; and
  • Create transportation solutions in Tahoe to break the dependence on private car travel and stop stormwater pollution before it starts.

For future generations to enjoy a clean, clear Lake Tahoe, business-as-usual will not deliver. The League is pushing for the dollars, political will and innovative ideas to turn these plans into action.  We can overcome these challenges. Join us, and together, we will Keep Tahoe Blue.”

Update on arrest of suspected murderer from California

Adrian Laredo:  Murder suspect

California Homicide Suspect Taken into Custody

On July 9th during the early morning hours, the Carson City Sheriff’s Office and State Division of Investigations were requested to assist U.S. Marshal’s and ATF Agents in the apprehension of a murder suspect out of San Jose, CA. The suspect, Adrian Laredo, born October 11th, 1994, had been located in a congested neighborhood in the area of North Roop Street and East Corbet Street, but was in the company of a child under the age of 5. The child was believed to be Laredo’s son. Although surveillance teams identified Laredo outside of the home several times during the morning, each time he came out of the house he was accompanied by the toddler. By 11:30 a.m., the joint agency operations leaders determined to use a SWAT Team to take the suspect into custody. The suspect was taken into custody at 11:55 without incident and transported to the Carson City Jail. No injuries were reported.

While the area of the arrest was closed to the public for only 15 minutes, the Sheriff’s Office had secured the entire neighborhood throughout the morning until the order was given to take him into custody. The Sheriff’s Office utilized social media app platforms to inform residents and businesses in the area to remain inside.

Complete details of the San Jose homicide were not immediately available. However, Agents did inform local agencies that the homicide occurred on June 17th in San Jose. Details suggested two individuals were shot during a robbery, and that one of the two had died from his wounds. Detectives from California had been dispatched to Carson City early and have been anticipated to perform follow up investigative steps upon their arrival.

Sheriff Furlong stated that the proximity of the toddlers remained the highest concern in the area all morning. However, he was pleased that the law enforcement teams were able to develop an effective plan for the apprehension that minimized risks to innocent by-standers, including children.

Ken Furlong, Sheriff
