Trump knocking down the Postal Service. Also Social Security and Medicare in his gunsights…

Donald Trump is trying to defund Social Security and Medicare by executive order. He’s vowing to “TERMINATE” their primary source of funding.

Sign the petition: Stop Trump’s raid on Social Security funding!

Instead of passing real coronavirus relief, Donald Trump is trying to bypass Congress by deferring payroll taxes that fund Social Security and Medicare through an executive order.
Trump’s scam doesn’t help the unemployed, who by definition have no payroll taxes. And it shreds the Constitution, which clearly says only Congress can change tax rates.
Patricia Ackerman is running for Congress to defend Social Security and Medicare against one of Trump’s top allies in Congress. Will you stand with our campaign today?
Thanks for standing up.

Playing with fire while keeping our fingers crossed….

Corona Virus

EDITORIAL: 

If we love our children as much as we say we do, then trying to open up schools during the height of a pandemic is a dead-end – literally.  Recent Covid-19 reports show that younger and younger persons are coming down with the disease all across the country and the world.  Faced with this truth, we can only characterize what the Carson City School District is doing – conducting school with our fingers crossed. Instead of giving our students protection from the Covid-19 we’re placing our children in harms way. Losing a year of school will save lives. Plowing ahead like “things are okay” will take lives.

Not enough is known about the behavior of the Covid-19 virus. For those families who lose a child (or more), will be scarred for life.  However, a vaccine(s) and therapies are being developed that can be administered by early-2021 – at the latest. Why can’t we….a civilized nation…keep our kids at home (or something close to home) until the vaccines and therapies are readily available?

Back in the 1950’s and 60’s we didn’t have both parents working. It wouldn’t have been too hard to accommodate such an emergency with a kid or two at home learning their school lessons. Today, our federal government should be ordering our children to stay at home and do remote learning 100% via the internet, paid for by paying mom, dad, relatives or friends to do the teaching. The federal government has the money. THEY PRINT MONEY and it’s not backed-up by Fort Knox – it’s backed up by the strength of our currency in the world economy. So they have no excuse for not doing the right thing.

We’re sending our children in to a burning building with little protection. Whoever wants to force our kids to go to school while not knowing where the Covid-19 viruses are floating around – in a classroom or on a bus – should have their values and priorities examined. Playing fast and loose with our children is unthinkable. Yet we’re moving ahead with it.  Are we out of our minds? At worst, the loss of some school lessons over a period of 8 months can easily be made up with modified curriculum in the following year or during the upcoming summer.

Cooler heads MUST PREVAIL! Natural disasters destroy schools all the time around the world. And yet students survive and thrive. So…can…we!!!

Crossed fingers don’t save lives.  Either does habitual denial.

Car burglary at a Hot Springs Road apartment interrupted….boy takes off running.

7:02pm  Report of a car burglary, complete with broken glass.  Witnesses said they saw a young man…possibly a teen-ager…break into a gold Chevy sedan in the parking lot of an apartment complex at 710 Hot Springs Road.  The boy took off running.  Neighbors and arriving sheriff’s deputies are looking for the youngster.

7:15pm  Sheriff’s Deputies are in contact with the suspect’s mother and her son at their apartment.

Several teens are lucky beyond belief – They survived what could have been a triple killer accident…

Thursday afternoon a driver of small sedan loses control going northbound on South Curry Street due west of the train station…

Passersby, CC Fire & Rescue crews and Sheriff’s Deputies carefully extricated the three teens from inside the car. One injured victim went to Renown in Reno.  Wrecked car on right edge of photo.

The boulders they rolled over utterly destroyed the car.

It’s amazing that all three young people lived to tell the story. SEAT BELTS SAVE LIVES!!

Sheriff Ken Furlong sizes up the sequence of events that combined to make a crash that should have killed three young people – but didn’t. Again, SEAT BELTS SAVE LIVES!!
