Humane Society caring in time of grief
Our beloved Chihuahua, Ginger, recently died. We were quite depressed and in need of information regarding disposition of the remains. The first place we went to was the Carson City Animal Services office where we were greeted by Humane Society staff.
They were all so caring and helpful and went out of their way to sooth our grief. This is evidence to us that Animal Services is staffed by genuinely nice people who have a passion for animals and appreciation for people’s attachment to their pets. This bodes well for the future of Animal Services under the management of the Humane Society.

Taste of Downtown showcases city’s offerings
I just wanted to take a moment to briefly review my thoughts on the Taste Of Downtown event that occurred on Saturday. This was actually my first appearance.
First off, I was completely blown away by the live entertainment, coupled with the great food from the 40 vendors. My favorite energetic acts were Chaser The Band, The Refiners, and The Remains. However, the best treat of all was listening to our very own Molly Seals with that awesome acoustic guitar inside the Comma Coffee Courtyard. As for the food itself, my top five picks were Johnny Rockets, The Lady Tamales, The Nevada Nosh Food Truck, Wally’s Pizza, and Comma Coffee.
Unfortunately, there was one major downside. I missed out on some of the other vendors that were inside the Carson Mall. For some people, there just wasn’t enough time in the day to visit every single booth. But, in the end, it simply goes to show how eclectic our local businesses in Carson City truly are. What an awesome way for our community to band together too; I can’t wait to return to the Taste of Downtown in June of 2016!
