Driving too fast for conditions – could have been a lot worse!

Young Lady Driver transported to CTRMC

Vehicle slowly entering the intersection from Nye, collided with the black sedan.

One young woman was transported to Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center Wednesday evening after her black sedan narrowly missed an elderly man in a wheel-chair in a crosswalk.  He was crossing Airport Road at Nye Lane. An SUV entered the intersection from Nye and collided with the sedan. The elderly man in the crosswalk narrowly made it to the other side of the road.

According to witnesses in the SUV they said they were stopped on Nye Lane waiting to turn left onto Airport Road. They saw the elderly man in the wheelchair venture out onto the crosswalk. The driver of the SUV turned south, away from the crosswalk, and onto Airport. Suddenly the black sedan, which they said was speeding, roared up, dodged the man in the wheelchair and hit the SUV. Driver of the sedan was injured and transported to CTRMC. Fortunately no one else was injured.

Carson City Schools MAY Re-open on August 24th!

Carson Middle School
King Street

Carson City Schools, K-12, will be opening near the end of August and from there it gets really bumpy.  Students will be alternating between schools and home – two days in school, two days at home.  No school Saturday, Sunday or Monday.

The odd schedule reflects the fact that normally full classrooms would likely become dangerous, if not deadly, by squeezing 30 to 40 students in a classroom.  A perfect way to spread the Corona Virus. The tentative school plan is to have one group of students attend Tuesdays and Thursdays – the other group attending Wednesdays and Fridays.  Pre-K and kindergarten will be in school a full 5 day week.  There will be everyday take-home school work with hopefully some help from mom and/or dad.  Videos will also help the students at home with their assignments.  Special arrangement will have to be made for students whose families don’t have internet.

Arranging bus rides to school will be a logistical challenge.  School officials have to determine which students will ride buses and which students won’t ride buses.  But suffice to say, if it takes a bus to get a student back and forth to school, it’ll happen.

Then there’s the issue of child care outside of school.  Some will likely wind up at the Boys and Girls Club as well at private facilities around the city.  More details yet to follow. 

As for lunches, the school district will continue to provide free and reduced cost meals.  Mondays there is no school – BUT –  families can pick up students lunches on mondays.

The School Board met July 14th with lots of families, teachers and school administrators to hash out what the school schedules will be.  The school board meeting helped to outline some of the major elements – but not all of them.  School officials are continuing to plan school days straight through December and into January.  These and other  plan refinements should be finalized at the next School Board Meeting on July 28th, 7-10pm, 1402 W. King, Carson City.

In Nevada, rental assistance for low income renters and struggling businesses strained – to say the least

Corona Virus
It’s raining poverty in Nevada…

Due to postponed rent payments to home and business landlords caused by the Corona Virus, another economic disaster is looming for thousands of Nevada families and small businesses.  Not long ago, most Americans received one-time government checks for $1,200 to help struggling families.  But by now that money is long gone.  And because Nevada’s economy is still far from healthy, hunger and homelessness are beginning to rear their merciless heads.  In September landlords will be given permission to evict a flood of families who will find themselves pushing shopping carts on the streets – by the hundreds of thousands – if the federal government doesn’t step in and issue another series of “rescue checks” to all Americans as it did earlier in the summer.

The state of Nevada has received $50 million dollars in federal “rent assistance” funds for struggling Nevada families. But offering just $50 million is like using a squirt gun to put out a raging fire. State officials admit the money won’t go far but they’re going to ensure that the most needy are given some form of priority. But arithmetic being arithmetic, the money will be distributed and spent, leaving Nevada back on square one. The same will be happening in all 50 states.

The situation begs a more systematic aid program which can only be directed by Washington DC. That’s where American money is printed. Guaranteed income for all low to lower middle class families, along with rigid market price controls, appears to be the only way out of our vicious, relentless Covid-19 disaster.
