The Nevada Appeal’s Silver Dollars & Wooden Nickels feature recognizes achievements from the capital region and, when warranted, points out other acts that missed the mark.
SILVER DOLLAR: We’ll pat ourselves as a community the back although a lot of credit should go to city officials and those who work in the housing industry. Carson City has been ranked as the healthiest housing market in Nevada by the financial technology company SmartAsset based on such standards as the average number of years residents spend in homes, home values, the number of homes in a community with negative equity, homes decreasing in value, how quickly a home sells and the percentage a home costs of income. Details of the rankings can be found here: https://smartasset.com/mortgage/mortgage-calculator?year=2017#Nevada.
SILVER DOLLAR: Again we must thank all the residents, businesses and public officials of the Carson City and Dayton areas for how we’re all dealing with the flooding
SILVER DOLLAR: To Carson High’s Carlos Mendeguia for being named the Coach of the Year in boys basketball and to CHS players Tez Allen, Jayden DeJoseph and Bella Kordonowy for being named to the all-Sierra League first team in basketball for this past season.
SILVER DOLLAR: To John Corbitt, a Pioneer High School teacher, and his math students for being chosen as finalists in the Samsung Solve For Tomorrow Contest.
