The 11-12 year old Carson City Little League All Star team would like to thank our families and the citizens of Carson City for supporting us to a District 1 championship. This support carried us to a second place finish during the State Little League tournament in Las Vegas. Finally, we appreciate the financial support provided to us by Carson City Little League, Team Sports Ink, and Basalite.

Garage sale buyer left without charger

Thanks to our ad in the Nevada Appeal, we had a very successful garage sale on a recently.

One customer purchased a Swiffer Vac, and forgot to take the charger for the vac. We would like to give it to the customer. If the buyer reads this letter, please return to 510 Bulette Dr. to pick up the Swiffer Vac charger.

Thank you again, Nevada Appeal, for the well-placed ad.

Thanks to Corvette Club for donation to rescue group

A BIG thank you goes out to the Lake Tahoe Corvette Club. Wylie Animal Rescue Foundation (WARF) has received a generous donation from their Corvettes at Tahoe Car Show fundraiser. We know there are many worthwhile organizations and are extremely grateful to have been selected as a recipient. Wayne Manning and Barbara Coe came to the weekly Saturday adoption event at Petco to make the presentation and were able to see the many cats and kittens that have been rescued and are available for adoption. We are all volunteers and are most appreciative, as this donation will allow us to continue helping abandoned, injured and neglected animals in the community.

Car show worth drive

I am writing this letter to let you know what an absolutely wonderful event I recently attended in Carson City. A good friend who lives in Incline Village at Lake Tahoe, invited me to the Silver Dollar Car Show (Aug. 5-7), held at Mills Park. It was a fantastic event! I have attended and participated in many car shows, but this event is something special. It is on grass, not hot steamy asphalt, and with only a modicum of effort, most everyone could easily find a shade tree for their car and themselves. The DJ's choice of music was great, there was an abundance of good food and the organizers couldn't have been more pleasant and accommodating.

You have something very special going on in your backyard and I just thought you would like to know one visitor's opinion. It was well worth the drive for me to attend.

Long-time tennis teacher making a difference

It is now time when families are again looking to a new school year and summer is in the rear mirror. When looking back, I am full of gratitude to the wonderful people who make our Carson Community special

Today, I want to single out one of these individuals: Diane Baker-Roberts. Back in the early 1970s, Ms. Baker-Roberts was my summer tennis coach and now, over 40 years later, she is still at and infact has coached my son for the past two years. Ms. Baker-Roberts is not getting rich in her endevors and I recognize it is not always easy battling Northern Nevada's unpredictable weather, but rain or shine, Ms. Baker-Roberts is there, year after year, at Mankin's Park, smiling and sharing her love of the game and inspiring children to live healthy lifestyles. Her commitment is also testiment that she understands the value and importance of giving back to her community.

Thank you, Ms. Baker-Roberts for your life-long dedicaton to coaching tennis in the summers and for making a difference in our children's lives. We notice.
