A large demonstration by teachers and parents of students made an extended loud noise outside the state legislature Monday, complaining bitterly that Nevada’s education system is failing Nevada children. They complained that Nevada’s spending on education, among all states, is near rock bottom. Demonstrators demanded action – including raising state taxes on Nevada’s mining industry. It would help not only Kindergarten through 12th grade students, but also to increase the ranks of newly college-educated students who qualify for high paying occupations.
Meanwhile state legislators around the country are grappling with budget shortfalls caused by the Covid-19 virus. There is a great deal of uncertainty as to what the federal government is willing to do to further pump-up revenue for education nationwide. (The federal government has the power to print more money – a lot more money). Many economists agree that pulling the U.S. up and out of its economic hole will require a great deal of financial resources with predictable time lines. Otherwise it could take years for the country to recover, which, in the minds of many economists, would be especially damaging to the U.S. economy for a very long time.
The Carson City Sheriff’s Office is requesting assistance with any information leading to the identification of a person responsible for the attempted sexual assault of a minor.
On Monday, February 15, 2021 at about 5:40 am an 11-Year-old girl awoke to a man kneeling next to her bed, touching her. Once the child woke up, the suspect fled from the apartment.
He was a:
White Male Adult
Late 20’s to late 30’s
5’8” to 5’10”
Brown hair (long enough that it stuck out from under the rim of the baseball hat he was wearing)
Stubble facial hair
Suspect Clothing Description:
Black Baseball style hat (unknown logo or writing)
Navy blue sweatshirt
Possibly had a backpack
Black surgical style face mask that looped behind the ears
Person of Interest:
During the initial investigation, video footage of a man matching the suspect’s description was recorded as he left the area of the assault. The person of interest was on a mountain bike and was last seen traveling southbound on Carson Street, passing the Carson City Inn at about 5:53 am.
The following picture is snapshot taken from an infrared surveillance camera in the area of the assault. It is for reference only due to the poor quality. The infrared camera does not show color and darker objects appear lighter on the infrared camera. The snapshot shows a male matching the suspect description riding toward the building where the assault occurred.

Creating a whole new approach to local government…from schools to law enforcement is on the minds of some adventurous entrepreneurs who are being reviewed by top Nevada leaders. And their ideas of inventing a different kind of “progress” east of Reno are rather unique. Here’s the story. Put your seatbelt on. Click here.
