Historic Nugget sign goes green

Rollin Smith of Houston Smith Construction installs and inspects new bulbs on the landmark Carson Nugget Waterfall Sign in downtown Carson City. Prior to bulb installation, the background was pressure washed and repainted. According to Ron Chancellor, facility manager of the Nugget, the old 25-watt incandescent bulbs are being replaced with energy efficient .7-watt, LED bulbs. The entire sign is being redone from the top down. A ribbon cutting ceremony is planned following completion of the bulb-replacement project.
