SILVER DOLLAR: To Carson High’s Sheldon Miller for his fifth place finish in wrestling at the Reno Tournament of Champions, earning him All-American status.
SILVER DOLLAR: To the all those involved in bringing Wreaths Across America to Carson City, which provided 100 wreaths to be placed on veterans’ graves at Lone Mountain Cemetery.
SILVER DOLLAR: To Sue Jesch for all her service to students over the years as she’s touched so many youths’ lives with the gift of music. Also to the community for its support of Jesch and we wish her well in her battle against Parkinson’s disease.
