Hats off to Les Schwab team

Hats off to Clayton Krys and the team at Les Schwab Tire Center’s north Carson location.

I experienced a blowout on the freeway in Washoe Valley. The road assist and tire service were top notch.

Thanks for the help. Wag of the finger to most motorists who did not slow down nor switch lanes. It was not a heavy traffic time of day.

Student thanks Nevadans for support on school project

Dear people of the great state of Nevada:

A couple of weeks ago, I had a letter to the editor published in this newspaper. It said that I was doing a state report on Nevada and asked you to send me some information.

Your response was overwhelming! I have tried my best to send a personal thank you to everyone, but if you sent something and have not received a personal letter, please know how much I appreciate the time, thought, effort and money that you took to help me with my project. I learned so much, and I will never forget this experience!

On May 18, we had a big state fair where we got to display the information and items we received. The people of the great state of Nevada were well represented. Thank you again.

Fire volunteers represent best of Carson City

Kudos to the members of the Carson City Fire Department and the Nevada Fire Safe Council for donating their own time to help local residents gather and transport brush and dead plant material May 19 on Wildfire Community Preparedness Day.

The locals and Fire Department volunteers worked hard to help keep our area safer from the ever-present wildfire danger.

Once again, an example of how great it is to live here in Carson City!
