CHS cross country thanks MAC

The Carson High School cross country team would like to shout out a huge thank you to the Multi-Purpose Athletic Center for its cooperation and kindness in helping us out through the smoke-filled days of summer training.

We appreciate the exceptional attitude of the MAC in working with us to keep our running sessions ongoing even when the air quality forces us to train indoors.

Scott Chapman, who is in charge, and Veronica, at the front desk, we think you are the best.

Thanks for the winning attitudes and the positive treatment we have received from all of you at the MAC.

Carson City Sheriff’s appreciates community support for National Night Out

Sheriff Ken Furlong and the staff of the Carson City Sheriff’s Office would like to thank all of the public agencies, support organizations, and the sponsors of National Night Out for an epic success this year. National Night Out drew in more organizations than ever before and provided the community, both young and adult, with an exceptional opportunity to speak directly to their individual needs and interests, as well as “giving crime a boot” here in Carson. This year’s attendance had a diverse variety of individuals, including infants as young as weeks old and even brought in visitors from China who happened to be passing through our community.

National Night Out unites Carson City’s residents and visitors to create strong collaborative ties to strengthen the security of our businesses, homes, and families. This event gives our partners the chance to represent their organizations and share meaningful information about their operations. In addition, National Night Out increases the exposure of community services that are otherwise overlooked or not widely recognized. Examples of these agencies surrounded Mills Park, such as the Department of Wildlife, Nevada Department of Corrections, our neighboring county law enforcement agencies, and courts. Each organization reached out with their best to answer questions, make suggestions, provide referrals and receive feedback. At the center of festivities, AT&T presented a “virtual reality” booth, encouraging all including the Sheriff to pledge not to text and drive.

National Night Out in Carson City has been recognized for 15 consecutive years as one of the top across the nation, and we expect this year may well move us into the top 3 ranking. Regardless of the awards, we believe our community involvement in crime related issues has improved tremendously which is an accomplishment achieved by all. This calendar year, the Sheriff’s Office and District Attorney’s Office have witnessed a sharp reduction in our most violent crime, and with the help of the community, we intend to see this drop even more.

Again, Sheriff Kenny Furlong and Fire Chief Sean Slamon would like to thank you all for attending and joining in on all of the efforts to make our community the best it can possibly be.
