CCSO: “Watch out for distracted drivers!”

Beware of Distracted Drivers!!

The Carson City Sheriffs Office will be joining forces with other Nevada Law Enforcement Agencies from July 20th thru August 3rd to be on the lookout for distracted drivers.

Since January 1st of this year, Carson City Deputies have issued more than 100 citations for distracted driving. This statistic doesn’t include the citations issued for failing to maintain your lane or speeding or running stops signs while being distracted. Distracted driving isn’t just about talking on your cell phone, but, can include eating, reading a book, watching videos, putting on make-up, playing with your dog (or cat, yes, we’ve seen that and other strange things) while driving that can ultimately cause a crash. We must all remember that while driving it is our responsibility to make driving the number one focus. It’s about being responsible and safely arriving at your destination.

Put your phone down, read that book, watch that video and play with your pets when you are not driving!  Pay attention to the road, other drivers and pedestrians.
     
By keeping these tips in mind, all of us have a better chance of arriving safely at our summer destinations.

Sergeant Mike Cullen, CCSO

Nevada stores are fined thousands of dollars for letting customers in without facemasks

Wear face mask away from home.  It’s the law.

Nevada OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) has lowered the boom on stores that allow customers inside their establishments while not wearing facemasks.  Governor Steve Sisolak, like so many other governors around the country, kept getting reports that stores were allowing “maskless” customers inside to shop – and in so doing allowing the spread of the Corona Virus to expand throughout Nevada by those who don’t even know they’re carrying the virus.

Governor Sisolak finally had enough.  Working with Nevada OSHA, the stores started getting fines in the thousands of dollars.  Here’s a list of some of the heavier fines, according to Nevada OSHA:

  • RAC Guns & Ammo LLC: 3030 Mill Street, Reno, $3,643
  • Winco Foods: 2855 Northtowne Lane, Reno, $7,374
  • Wal-Mart Store #1648: 3770 U.S. Highway 395, N. Carson City, $8,675
  • Wal-Mart Store #3408 : 3200 Market Street, Carson City, $8,675
  • The Home Depot: 921 Jacks Valley Road, Carson City, $8,675
  • Grocery Outlet: 7 Dayton Village Pkwy, Dayton, $6,073
  • Walmart Neighborhood Market: 6151 West Lake Mead Blvd., Las Vegas, $13,494
Governor Sisolak,, like other governors around the country, have grown weary of those who maintain that “I have a right to not wear a mask if I so choose.  It’s a free country!”  Again, it’s like demanding one’s right to do 50 mph in a school zone – you’re endangering other peoples’ lives.  Endangering…other…peoples’…lives.  And thousands upon thousands of people are simply refusing to obey the law.  Therefore the stores are being told to not let people inside their establishments without a proper facemask.  Those stores who let them in get hit hard with big fines. 
There is such a thing as REALITY.  And the reality is that the Covid-19 virus is spreading like a prairie fire across the country.  Thousands of people are dying because those who have the virus – BUT DON’T KNOW IT – are feeding the flames.  Simple as that. 
WEAR A MASK WHEN YOU’RE AWAY FROM HOME!

A message from Congressional Candidate Patricia Ackerman

CNN: White House takes aim at Fauci as he disagrees with Trump on virus

Trump has ignored science and is risking the health of every single American. Now, he’s attacking Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Add your name: We STAND with Fauci!

Dr. Anthony Fauci warned against hasty reopenings, and is sounding the alarm about school reopenings this fall. But Trump ignored and attacked Fauci as cases surged to record levels.
Patricia Ackerman is running for Congress because we need leaders who put science first.
Instead of protecting our lives, the Trump administration is focused on revenge. CNN reports:
The White House is making a concerted effort to discredit Dr. Anthony Fauci as he becomes increasingly vocal about his concerns over reopening the country amid a national surge in coronavirus cases. The moves to undercut Fauci come just days after he gave an unvarnished look at his relationship with President Donald Trump, including that they have not spoken in weeks.
We must defeat Trump and his allies in Congress, like Rep. Mark Amodei. Will you stand with Patricia’s campaign today?
Thanks for signing on.
— Ackerman for Congress

Opening up CC’s downtown restaurants with outside lunch and dinner

Corona Virus
Update…

With permission from Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak, Nevada’s cities and towns can now avoid illegally crowded restaurants by moving some of their lunch and dinner tables outdoors onto sidewalks including downtown Carson City…with six foot spacing between tables of course. The outside seating must be taken back inside the restaurants past a certain time.  Signage will be more liberally allowed.

Supervisors also learned that getting our kids back in school will be a chore.  Here in Carson City there will be two major groups of students – one group attending two days a week and a second group doing the same. No school on Mondays.  After-school arrangements are being explored including using the “Mac” gym facility in Carson City next to I-580.  There are other facilities being considered.

The final version of all this is expected to be adopted by the school board on July 27th.  We’ll see how it works out.

One bright light in all this is renown immunologist Dr. Anthony Fauci and his medical associates from the National Institutes of Health.  They may have already hit the ball out of the park on developing an anti-Covid-19 vaccine.  The group has been working morning, noon and night for months to develop a vaccine that will help give us all our lives back.  So far, tests on their vaccine-in-training performed very well when it was injected into over 40 volunteers who already had dead Covid-19 virus circulating in their bodies.  Dr. Fauci said the anti-bodies in the new vaccine ferociously attacked the dead viruses which thoroughly impressed Dr. Fauci and his associates.  The big test involving 30,000 human testees is expected to take place within two to three months.  If that test proves as effective as the first one, we’ll see the world re-open widely again.  There are also other “vaccines-in-training” around the world.  Hopefully we’ll get our lives and our world back by next Summer, in not late Spring.

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.
