When Carson City Public Works employees come to work they know they have a full day ahead of them. But on this day they found themselves facing a work order they couldn’t “duck” under. It was a Carson City resident calling on them to rescue a long line of ducklings that got trapped down a street drain – and they couldn’t get out. And the mama duck was pacing nervously back and forth above them just absolutely beside herself with stress.
Public Works workers called the Carson City Humane Society to the scene and sure enough there was a whole gaggle of goslings just under the iron street screen. A brawny public works worker reached down and pulled up the screen, revealing the ducklings right below.
One by one the little ducklings were retrieved from what could have been their watery grave during a rain storm. When the ducklings were released they ran after what was a very worried Mama Duck. They all met up on the grass and quickly waddled off chasing after mom.
Public Works and Humane Society folks say if you hear a duck in distress near a storm drain just take a look down. You just might be able to save it.
If you need help, just call the Nevada Humane Society in Carson City at (775) 887-2171.
Mayor Crowell “We’re in Phase I. Here’s how we do it.”
A MESSAGE FROM CARSON CITY MAYOR BOB CROWELL
Phase 1 for the Reopening of Carson City
I don’t need to tell anyone reading this that these are difficult times, to say the least, and it will require the continued collective effort of all of us to ensure the health of our community and to safely reopen our Carson City economy. Make no mistake, your efforts are making a positive difference. On behalf of the community of Carson City I want to take this opportunity to thank our citizens and businesses for your diligence in staying home and practicing social distancing in order to achieve Phase 1 for the reopening of Carson City and the State of Nevada. I especially want to thank our Carson City employees, fire and police, and our dedicated health care professionals who continued to work through the shut-down, sometimes at great risk to their health and safety.
As many are aware, on May 7th, Governor Sisolak announced the release of Declaration of Emergency Directive #018, initiating the reopening of businesses in accordance with the adoption of procedures compiled based on guidance from the CDC, the Food and Drug Administration, Nevada OSHA, and other relevant agencies.
The Phase 1 standards require occupancy limitations, six feet of social distancing, continuous sanitization of regularly used equipment, personal protective equipment for employees, and other requirements for non-essential businesses to open or continue operations during Phase 1. The Industry Specific Guidance and General Guidance documents are available online atnvhealthresponse.nv.gov.These health and safety practices are essential for our community to proceed on the road ahead. Carson City will follow the statewide guidance rather than enacting local guidelines incorporating additional requirements. If you have specific questions about occupancy limits, please call Carson City Fire Department at (775) 887-2210 or email James Wentworth with the Carson City Building Department email@example.com. For any health related or testing questions, please call Carson City Health and Human Services at 775-283-4789.
In order to meet the State requirements, many of our local businesses have adjusted their operations to offer curbside pick-up, delivery, and arranging appointments for services. Local businesses have devoted many hours altering their facilities, training employees, and adjusting schedules. Our community relies heavily on the commitment of these businesses adhering to safety practices. And while they creatively plan for ways to serve their customers, I want to remind us all that we, as neighbors, family, friends and other communities, need to remain diligent in our efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
I encourage Carson City residents to support our local businesses as they make their way through this transition; however, please maintain social distancing and wear face coverings while in public areas. It is critical for individuals to be motivated to protect one another from exposure. Those wearing masks, washing hands, and social distancing are doing so with consideration not only to their own health but the health of others. This honorable exercise of caution will place us on a favorable trajectory. Those who are vulnerable should continue to stay home. Additionally, please be patient while receiving services as businesses are responding to the new guidelines with great urgency.
I am also pleased to announce that Carson City public offices are implementing appropriate measures to reopen to the public. City offices are implementing the same standards as Carson City’s businesses. City facilities have installed plexiglass coverings, employees will be routinely cleaning and disinfecting workspace areas and equipment. Our employees are committed to keeping citizens safe by encouraging social distancing whenever possible. Carson City employees who will be engaging with the public will be wearing face coverings and we ask that the public do the same. Shortly we will be announcing office hours and any restrictions.
Once again, thank all of you for the efforts you have made during this unprecedented time. As a City we have faced economic challenges before. Together, working as one community and in one direction, we will restore Carson City to the community we all love and are proud to call home!
Gov. Steve Sisolak Helping out-of-work Nevadans to keep collecting unemployment checks…
Unemployment insurance filers will continue to get their unemployment benefits without beating the streets for jobs that aren’t there.
“Continuing to waive this requirement maintains Nevadans’ access to unemployment insurance benefits while Nevada gradually reopens with new safety precautions in place for workers and customers,” said Gov. Sisolak.
“As Nevada moves through the reopening phases and more businesses move to reopen, the Employment Security Division and Unemployment Insurance will link the restart of this program with the re-opening of JobConnect offices throughout the state,” said Kimberly Gaa, Administrator for Employer Security Division. “We continue to be focused on providing benefits and extend search waivers as permitted to protect the health and safety of job-seeking Nevadans.”
Nevadans seeking Unemployment Insurance (UI) Benefits are strongly encouraged to file online at http://ui.nv.gov/css.html. This is the fastest and most convenient way to file and it keeps open the phone lines for individuals who are not able, or do not have the necessary resources, to file online.
Independent workers, self-employed and gig workers are asked not to file on the UI website as the agency is well into the process of implementing the new module necessary to start taking claims by mid-month.
Singas Creek Road goes way up into the mountains….above Paradise Valley.
Rock and mountain climbing in Nevada can be both exciting and quite deadly. Unfortunately for a young Carson City man it proved deadly last weekend. The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office says Tristan Lynn was hiking with friends north of Winnemucca in an area near Singas Creek, well west of the community of Paradise Valley.
Humboldt County Sheriff’s Deputies say that Lynn and his friends camped out last weekend and were enjoying some rock climbing a few miles up a steep canyon. They say Lynn was trying to get around a large boulder when he lost his grip on the rock. They say Lynn fell 25 feet downslope. Unfortunately his grip on the rock had also dislodged it and it came plummeting down slope and hit him.
Because Lynn and his fellow climbers were so far from help, it took a while to get him air-lifted to a hospital in Winnemucca. Tragically he died soon after his arrival.

The Culinary Workers Union Local 226
Nevada Veteran’s Association
Richard Bryan, former U.S. Senator and former Nevada Governor
“I endorse Clint Koble for his candidacy in northern Nevada’s 2ndCongressional District. With Clint’s rural background, experience in small business and federal government, and his tenure at USDA as a state director, he understands urban and rural issues. Clint’s work ethic, commitment, and leadership make for a great profile of representation for the citizens of Nevada.”
Frankie Sue Del Papa, former Nevada Attorney General
“Clint Koble knows Nevada. Clint Koble knows how to work hard for Nevada. Clint Koble also knows how to work well with others to get things done. Let’s send Clint Koble to Congress.”
Janice & Patrick Flanagan, former Chair of Washoe Dems and retired Veteran
“Our family is pleased to endorse Clint Koble for Congress in 2020. Clint is just who we need as Nevada’s representative in Washington DC. Clint Koble is an honorable truth-teller who exemplifies Nevada family values. Clint will bring our state back to a vibrant economy and help all of Washoe County’s families prosper and move forward to a bright future. Please join our family in voting for Clint Koble for Congress.”
Mylan Hawkins, Community Activist
“I am pleased to endorse and support Clint Koble for Congress representing CD-2. Clint is uniquely qualified to be our Representative having experience with both of our urban and rural communities. He understand the challenges we face and has the will, commitment, compassion and skill set that will bring us through difficult times and give us a real voice in Congress. Please join me by supporting and voting for Clint Koble.”
Jan Lockard, former State and National President of the Woman’s Historical Preservation and Lineage Society
“I endorse Clint Koble for Congress because he can be trusted to support the people of Nevada and their concerns; not vote on behalf of big corporations and their special interest PACs. Clint understands business, government, urban and rural concerns. He will fight on issues that benefit women and be responsive to the need for action on climate change.”
Brian Melendez, Chair, Nevada Statewide Native American Caucus
“We endorse Clint Koble because of his sincere care for Indigenous populations. Under Clint’s leadership, I believe we will see an unprecedented expansion of sovereignty and self-determination for Tribal Peoples of Nevada.”
John Scire, PhD and UNR Adjunct Professor of Foreign Policy, Energy Policy and Climate Policy
“As an Adjunct Professor of Foreign Policy, Energy Policy and Climate Policy, I am worried for the survival of our democracy under the current President and his current errand boy, Mark Amodei. I very strongly endorse Clint Koble to be our Congressman. He will stand up for Nevadans, for our environment, for our industries, and for employment opportunities for our citizens. He will ensure that the clean energy industry is not further injured by the current administration which is pulling all support for clean energy and is massively funding the dirty oil and coal industries. Our current congressman never speaks up when the President says stupid things and does things that hurts us Nevadans. He has to go and Clint Koble is the man to replace him and help us Nevadans liver healthy, prosperous lives.”
John Shipley, President, American Federation of Musicians Local 368
“Clint has decades of leadership experience having worked with small businesses in northern and in rural Nevada. As a businessman in Northern Nevada and an appointee under the Obama administration as state director of the Farm Services Agency, Clint has shown his dedication to the people of Northern Nevada and we need him to be our voice in Congress. I support Clint because of his stand to make healthcare more affordable, help students to pay for college, create a sensible immigration policy, and help workers put bread on the table by increasing the minimum wage and empowering unions to create new collective bargaining units. Clint is a friend to labor and will support issues for musicians and workers in Nevada and nationally. Since the 1980s musicians and entertainers in Nevada, and through the country have been overlooked and unpaid. Thanks you Clint, for being the only candidate to show interest in the plight of musicians in Northern Nevada…”
Chris Wicker, Chair Emeritus of the Washoe Dems, former Vice Chair of the State Democratic Party
“I have known Clint for many years and I greatly admire his work ethic and knowledge of the issues facing Nevada and this country. As the Chair Emeritus of the Washoe County Dems, former Vice Chair of the State Party, and a former DNC member, I have seen a lot of candidates. Clint is particularly well qualified to serve Nevada. I unreservedly endorse his candidacy.”
