Huge column of black smoke 12:30pm at Empire Ranch Golf Course

Empire Ranch Golf Course

12:15pm. A tall, thick column of smoke drifted up high in the air over Empire Ranch Golf Course early this afternoon.  At first glance it looked like it might have been a house fire.  But as it turned out the smoke was coming from an active golf course maintenance crew, cleaning out some ditches at the northwest corner of the facility.  

Carson City Firefighters at an apartment fire over off Russell Way noticed the tall, thick column of smoke to the east but quickly learned over their radios that it was a control burn at Empire Ranch Golf Course.  

WOODBURY CALLS FOR CORONER’S INQUEST ON MALONE DEATH

DISTRICT ATTORNEY WOODBURY CALLS FOR CORONER’S INQUEST ON MALONE DEATH

CARSON CITY, NEVADA –District Attorney Jason Woodbury has called for a coroner’s inquest relating to the February 15, 2020 killing of Clint Garett Malone in Carson City. Malone, 37, died as the result of multiple stab wounds inflicted at a residence on Woodside Drive. In a Petition for Coroner’s Inquest filed Tuesday with the Carson City Justice Court, Woodbury identified 35 potential witnesses and 103 potential items of evidence for the inquest, which he expects to last three days.

By law, the Carson City coroner must investigate any death which occurs under circumstances which may be occasioned by unnatural means. The District Attorney then reviews the coroner’s investigation to determine whether an inquest is warranted. Sheriff Ken Furlong serves as the coroner for Carson City.

“Based on the information gathered in the investigation to date and in consultation with Sheriff Furlong, I have determined an inquest is appropriate under the circumstances of this case,” said Woodbury, adding, “This proceeding allows us to present all the evidence in this matter and see what a jury decides the evidence shows.” Furlong said he “appreciated the transparency of the inquest process.” “This is our best opportunity to provide the public the full extent of the investigation,” he said.

A coroner’s inquest is not a criminal proceeding. Its purpose is to determine whether the conduct that resulted in an individual’s death was legally justified, excused, or criminal. If it is determined to be criminal, it may be referred for criminal proceedings. Three Carson City residents qualified to serve as jurors will be selected to serve as the jury for the inquest. A justice of the peace presides and will instruct the jury on the law it must apply to the evidence presented. Following the presentation of evidence and instruction on the applicable law, the jury will be asked to return a verdict reflecting the manner of death.

Woodbury said the next step in the process calls for the Carson City Justice Court to schedule the inquest hearing.

 

Jobs, Jobs, Jobs…what makes the world go round…

RENO, Nev. — At the end of each year, the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada celebrates myriad companies it helped woo to the Northern Nevada region.

This year, EDAWN assisted 30 companies to relocate and/or expand their workforce to the Greater Reno-Sparks region.

According to a Dec. 15 press release, these businesses are expected to add a combined 2,295 new jobs at an average wage of $28 in the coming years. Further, 11 of the companies will establish new corporate headquarters in Northern Nevada.

“On behalf of the entire EDAWN Team, I would like to welcome these new and expanding companies to our region,” Mike Kazmierski, CEO of EDAWN, said in a statement.  “I want to also acknowledge all of our partners (what we like to call the EDAWN Team) for your support and assistance throughout the year.  I can tell you that this kind of cooperation from government, education and business does not happen in most places and it makes our job easier (even in these tough times) as economic developers because it truly gives us a competitive advantage.”

Typically, the region’s new companies are celebrated at an end-of-year celebration hosted by EDAWN; that was canceled this year due to the pandemic.

Carson City Sheriff’s Deputies are on the lookout for drivers who aren’t paying attention to the road…

The Carson City Sheriff’s Office will be joining forces with other Nevada Law Enforcement Agencies from January 15th through January 25th to be on the lookout for distracted drivers.

Nevada law prohibits talking on a cell phone while driving.  The law also prohibits texting while driving. It’s pretty specific. If a person is caught texting while driving or talking on the phone while driving, they may face an expensive traffic ticket.

Can you text and drive in Nevada? NO.  Are there exceptions?  YES:

  • Emergency personnel ( performing their duties)
  • Public Employees (performing their duties)
  • Federal Communications Commission (conducting emergency drills)
  • A citizen reporting and emergency

Texting aside, there are many types of distractions to drivers other than cell phone use, such as, eating and drinking, talking to passengers, reading, putting on makeup or combing your hair, using a navigation device or reading a map, watching videos, changing your radio station, playing with your dogs, cats or birds. (Yes, birds, you know who you are)

It is all of our responsibility to drive responsible and watch out for others. Even if it is not specifically listed in the statute as unlawful, distracted driving is dangerous and could lead to a crash.

The Carson City Sheriff’s Office remains dedicated to bringing the number of fatalities on our roadways to zero through increasing public awareness about the dangers of driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol. More information about safe driving and the state’s Zero Fatalities goal is available online at www.ZeroFatalitiesNV.com
