Raspberry-filled Churros Help Spread the Love for Valentine’s Day
Carson City — Although more traditionally known for his signature bow and arrow, Cupid donned a chef’s hat earlier today in Carson City. Food and Nutrition workers cooked up some Valentine’s Day love for students in the Carson City School District.
Understanding holidays have been anything but normal the past 11 months, employees at the school district went out of their way to share proverbial “Hugs and Kisses” with young romantics. In their minds, nothing warms the heart quite like fresh baked pizza, strawberry milk and raspberry-filled churros.
Some students used common Valentine’s Day Conversation Heart colloquialisms to describe the “Sweet Treat,” saying it was the “Best Day,” “Super Cool,” or these are “All Mine!” And in another student’s opinion, “It tastes like the fair.”
Happy Valentine’s Day from the Carson City School District. <3 OO XX OO <3

A local homeless man has been booked into the Carson City Jail after he was caught inside a supposedly years-long locked up empty building – called K-Mart.
Sheriff’s Deputies were contacted by a property management employee who was inspecting the building. The employee reported that a homeless man had just walked out of the vacant building and was walking south along the backside of the building. The deputies caught up with him and the property inspector identified him as having set up a sleeping area inside the building. Deputies arrested the vagrant who was then taken to the Carson City Jail for burglary, damage to property and other charges.
But the homeless man wasn’t the only one living inside the K-Mart building. Small areas of the 80,000 square building were littered with campsites and strewn with personal property. They also found evidence of illegal drugs including devices for using them.
The Sheriff’s Office report added that the old K-Mart is in real estate escrow – meaning that someone or some company is in the process of buying the building. However, no predicted date of sale was mentioned.
In the meantime, the the seller or the new owner has one heck of a clean up and repair job ahead of them. Again, there’s no indication as to when the old K-Mart building might be sold or what future use might be on the horizon. Interest rates are currently very low but they’ll likely start climbing once we whip the Covid-19 Virus.
