A lady called the other day to ask what happened to Carson City.
After reading about the break-ins at the Model Airplane Airport and the Eagle Valley Church, she said she thought Carson just wasn't the nice place she moved to all those years ago.
Fortunately, the number of people trying to make sure Christmas in Carson City is a joyous time for everyone far outnumbers those who try to ruin the holiday.
Toys for Tots, thanks in part to the efforts of the Silver State Detachment of the Marine Corps League, gathered toys for needy children all over Carson City and at the last minuted came up with more than 100 more for the children who fell victim to the people "Grinch."
The Angel Tree is another example where Carsonites stepped forward to make sure everyone enjoys Christmas.
The list goes on and on.
The Salvation Army, Friends In Service Helping, the Rotary, the Karson Kruzers, Carson City's schools are just a few of the other groups to step forward to help others during this season of giving.
For every crime committed in Carson City this week, there have been 10 acts of kindness.
All of this proves that Carson City is still a place where people care, and as long as that is true, it will be a nice place to live.
