Carson City is the place to make a name for yourself
From farming and construction to police and politics, Carson
City’s infrastructure contains the possibility for any giddy youngster to
become a triumphant pillar of the community.
Growing up in the capital of the Silver State, I’ve found
that involving myself in the community and shaking hands with the influential
crowd, reaped only good benefits for youthful me.
Whether gaining a positive reputation, resume building, or
just kind altruism, there is no volunteer or culture enthusiast shortage here.
The Brewery Arts Center, Community Center, Railroad Museum, and so much more to
find purpose in.
The relatively small population coupled with the quick
spread of gossip makes Carson City a faultless place for your average Joe to
gain some recognition. The quantity of small businesses means all the more ease
to move up the promotional ladder. Any dishwasher who’s determined enough can
become restaurant manager in no time. Being the prime of gambling, Carson City
is the place for you to double your money in a matter of minutes after slipping
your pocket change into the slots. That’s the magic of Nevada, betting on
I am proud to call Carson City my hometown; I plan to
someday run for the mayor’s office in fact. I can’t think of another place
where someone with nothing but a goal in mind and a sprinkle of hope in their
heart can take the world by storm, one opportunity at a time.
NEPA policy change bad for environment
On Jan. 9, the National Environmental Policy Act was updated
for the first time since 1978.
The changes will speed up the review process for
infrastructure projects by no longer considering the long-term environmental health
effects of the project.
This choice will ignore long-term human exposure to air
pollution and contaminants. Especially in today's world where we are all
feeling the effects of COVID-19, understanding how air pollution is linked to
our health is so vital.
Harvard released a study linking a one-unit increase in
particulate matter pollution to a 15% increased likelihood of death by
COVID-19. A reduction in air pollution in New York could have saved over 200
lives and would reduce the vulnerability of African-American communities.
The time is now for President Trump to act to reduce
contaminants and pollutants in our neighborhoods; to keep ourselves, our
elderly and our children safer from the damaging effects of pollutants on our
health. So why is it that now your administration is reducing NEPA oversight
and lowering regulation on automobile tailpipes? We have a unique opportunity
to make green and healthy solutions part of the United States’ economic
rebound. I urge the president to support the American people in making a shift
toward clean air and better health.
Letter about voter suppression mostly hyperbole
Well, our favorite liberal is at it again. Now he wants to
be in charge of not only the way elections are conducted in Nevada but to
expand his influence to include Wisconsin. He goes on and on about how those
wicked Republicans wouldn’t let Democrats extend the legal deadline for casting
absentee ballots. A deadline that was confirmed as legal by both the Wisconsin
and United States supreme courts. This extension had nothing to do with the
COVID-19 virus since the governor made no issue about that until the day before
What our favorite liberal didn't bother to include, imagine
that, was the real reason the Democrat governor changed his mind about
extending the deadline was that more Republicans were turning in absentee
ballots than Democrats. So our favorite liberal returns to the old tried and
true claim of voter suppression … As usual he only provides partial truth but
Golf courses should be open
So, Gov. Steve Sisolak took the easy way out — what's new?
Golf is the one thing we should still be able to do while using individual
carts. A couple of troublemakers send pictures to Sisolak of two golfers riding
together and Sisolak shuts down the golf courses.
We used to deal with the less than 1% of the rule breakers.
No more: He punishes the over 99% of the people obeying his rules.
Free America is a thing of the past — all due to
politicians. I wouldn't vote for this guy to pick up my garbage.
‘The Poem Painter’
No matter what the shadows seem to hold,
beyond are the days,
that we will rise above again,
taking with us loving lessons,
from the painful places,
where we've been
Tho sometimes our faith may feel defeat,
we will rise above again,
taking with us loving lessons,
from the heartfelt,
places where we've been…
