Still cracking’ down on DUI’s….

Nevada State Police Joins Forces to Focus on Impaired Drivers

There’s No Excuse for Driving Under the Influence

The Nevada State Police, Highway Patrol Division, and other law enforcement agencies participating in Joining Forces will be combining resources from February 9, 2022 through February 15, 2022 to apprehend impaired drivers.

Each year, motorists across Nevada are killed or injured because someone made the decision to drive impaired. In 2021, 150 people died on Nevada’s roadways in crashes where impairment either involved or believed to be a factor (number of substance-related fatalities pending for 2021 and could go up). Impaired driving doesn’t mean just alcohol; it is anything that affects your ability to safely operate a motor vehicle. Being a responsible driver is simple: if you are impaired, do not drive. Whether it’s a designated driver or public transportation, everyone should make sure they have a plan in place to avoid any chance of making a poor decision that could lead to unnecessary tragedy.

This Joining Forces campaign reflects the unwavering mission of the Nevada Highway Patrol and its dedication to keeping the public safe by finding, investigating, and apprehending persons driving while impaired on Nevada’s highways.

Shots fired near Carson and Fairview – Turned out to be tail-pipe back fires….

7:49pm. Carson City Sheriff’s deputies are responding to a report of shots-fired near Les Schwab Tires on South Carson Street.  After the shots were heard, the driver took off from the scene in a Silver Volkswagen Golf.  

7:55pm. Reports say deputies have stopped the vehicle and the driver is being detained.

7:58pm. Deputies said it might have been the sound of tail-pipe back-fires rather than gun shots.

8pm. Deputies confirm that it wasn’t gunshots.  They were merely backfires from the vehicle’s tail pipe(s).  Deputies probably told the driver to swing by Les Schwab and tone down his tail pipes.

Police searching for a criminal suspect in the Menlo-Lompa area, south of Highway 50

4:36pm  The fugitive has been apprehended at south Menlo Court in an apartment.  He’s off to the city jail.

Electric Powered Vehicles are making formidable landings in Nevada

Electric car charging station

The Nevada Legislature has taken a bold step toward electric powered cars and trucks, especially in Las Vegas and CARSON CITY, no less.  According to state elected officials the installation of electric “charging stations” will number 60, divided up between Carson City and the Las Vegas area.  And half of those charging stations will be accessible to the public.  The rest likely will be awarded to state employee usage.

As for “who is going to pay the bill” it’s been announced that $1.2 Million will be coming from federal grant awards through the State Energy Office and NV Energy.  We’ll see how quickly electric vehicles become all-the-rage.

Anyone recognize these individuals?

Incumbent District Attorney Jason Woodbury asks for another term…

DA Jason Woodbury
Seeking a third term as
CC District Attorney

Experience:

When it comes to protecting your family’s safety, there’s no substitute for experience.  I haven’t seen it all in my seven-plus years of serving as your District Attorney, but I’ve seen a lot.  The team of men and women in our office is superb, and fights for this community’s safety every day.  We’re more than ready for any challenge that comes our way.

Fighting for Victims:

An arrest marks the end of the hurting and the beginning of the healing for victims of crime.  Our office processes about 3,000 criminal cases every year.  Many of those cases involve a victim.  When a law enforcement agency submits a criminal report to my office, the first person to touch that report is an advocate in our Victim/Witness Services unit.  That advocate’s highest priority is to contact the victim as soon as possible.  From that moment on, every victim in every case has a direct and personal connection to the team that will prosecute the case.  I can’t guarantee you or someone you love will never be victimized by crime.  But rest assured, you’ll have strong, skilled, compassionate advocates in your corner if you are.  As your District Attorney, I consider this to be my most important duty.

Government Transparency:

The District Attorney’s office has primary responsibility for ensuring that all meetings of the Board of Supervisors and the other 21 boards, committees and commissions that advise the Supervisors are open, transparent and compliant with Nevada’s Open Meeting Law.  During my administration, we have served as legal staff for nearly 1,000 such meetings, all of which were required to be 100% compliant with Nevada’s Open Meeting Law.  I am proud to report that there has not been a single complaint filed alleging an Open Meeting Law violation against any public body my office represents.  Not a single one.  For me, perfection is the only acceptable standard on this subject.  My team of civil attorneys understands my expectation, and I’m grateful they have met such a rigorous standard.

Responsible Use of Taxpayer Dollars:

Like you, I expect my public officials to be absolutely responsible and accountable for the use of taxpayer dollars.  As your District Attorney, I am ever mindful that every dollar spent in my office is a dollar that was taken from the pocket of someone who worked hard to earn it.  In fiscal year 2021, the last fiscal year in which audited financial data is available, my office’s expenditures were 4.11% of the total General Fund expenditures in Carson City.  (Source: CARSON CITY’S ANNUAL COMPREHENSIVE FINANCIAL REPORT, Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2021 at pages 29 and 85, available here.)

That’s a good value, as you can see when comparing the same data for other surrounding counties:

  • Douglas: 7.03% (Source: at pages 33, 97, and 104, available here.)

  • Lyon: 4.34% (Source: at pages 17, 20, and 74, available here.)

  • Storey: 5.21% (Source: at pages 17, 22, and 24, available here.)

  • Washoe: 7.54% (Source: at pages 22 and 25-26, available here.)

Like your family, my management team has worked hard to live within its means during my administration.  In fact, in each of the years I have served as your District Attorney, my office has under spent its allocated budget and returned taxpayer dollars to the General Fund.

Commitment to Carson City’s Future:

Twenty-five years ago, I decided to make Carson City my home.  I met my wife here.  My children were born here and go to school here.  The safety and prosperity of the families who share this community with my family are deeply personal concerns for me.  Eight years ago, I began my first campaign to serve this community which has been so good to us.  Carson City voters hired me, and serving as your D.A. has been the honor of my life.  I hope to earn your vote.

Thank you,

Jason Woodbury, District Attorney

We’re not out of the woods yet – maybe not for a long time…

Omicron Virus
Spreads fast but not as deadly as earlier versions of Covid-19

Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak has announced that the state no longer requires face coverings “effective immediately.”  “Masks are not required for students and teachers and employees beginning Friday morning.” The Nevada Gaming Control Board quickly lifted the face covering rule for casinos unless a city or county still demands they be worn.  The Governor said locations in Nevada where masks may still be required include hospitals, clinics and long-term care facilities, at airports and on aircraft and on public buses and school buses. He said masks are no longer mandatory in jails and state prisons.

Governor Sisolak commented that there is a strong decline in coronavirus cases in Nevada. However, the spread of the virus in Nevada remains far above the national average. Nationally, cases and hospitalizations from COVID-19 have dropped considerably after peaking earlier this year amid the spread of the omicron variant.  But the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continues to recommend wearing masks indoors in places of “substantial or high transmission” of the virus.

Sticky fingers and counterfeit bills

Do you know this young woman’s whereabouts? If so, call Sheriff’s Office

The Carson City Sheriff’s Office Investigation Division is asking for assistance in identifying a suspect in a case involving the use of counterfeit money.

On January 28, 2022 deputies responded to Walgreens in Carson City and took a report of someone uttering a forged instrument. On January 27th a black female adult wearing a camo style sweatshirt, dark leggings, pink boots, red and yellow hat and wearing a possible wig entered Walgreens and passed counterfeit money.

The female left the store on foot and was last seen carrying a satchel type purse.
