1 Carson City Chamber of Commerce News & Views 1900 S. Carson Street Sunday, May 22, 2016 News & Views is an advertising-supported supplement from the Carson City Chamber of Commerce. Opinions expressed are those of the author. Letters are welcome: Redesigning Blue Line map a labor of LOVE There are some people so artistically talented, you wonder whether you were at the end of the line when talents were passed out. One such amazingly talented artist residing in our city deserving to be recognized for her incredible talents note the s is Debbie Lynn Ottinger who has lived in Carson City since 2009, relocating from Montana to accept a job in the Carson City ublic Works Department as a Civil Engineering Designer. I first saw Deb s work when checking out the whimsical map she created for our parks and recreation department to showcase the attractions and parking venues for the Fair held at Fuji ark last August. So, impressed was I with her art, that I called the parks department to find out who the artist was, for I had a potential project I wished to discuss with her. From the beginning, Deb and I hit it off. The project I wanted done was to update and recreate a friendlier version of our Kit Carson Blue Line Trail map. She took to that like a duck to water and spent many hours researching, photographing and getting to know our unique little historic district before committing her sketches to paper. Her everyday job is centered on designing streets, water systems, sewer lines and underground utilities. She also surveys. If you are not into engineering, this doesn t sound particularly artistic, but she declares she finds it creative. Though not formally schooled in engineering design, Deb did attend art school and learned engineering design from the ground up at her first job in 1984 for an engineering firm in Arizona and since she can draw, she was able to translate those talents into drafting stating, Anyone who can draw can draft. When not creating the unseen underground systems we take for granted, Deb spends time in the art studio she created in her garage and lets her creative mind and hands take over. She tells us, Engineering design lets me use the left side (logical) of my brain and working on my art, allows me to use the right side (creative) and that keeps me well-balanced. Using both sides of her brain allows her to create art in a number of different mediums including metal art, sculpture in various metals and wood, glass etching, leather design and whatever just might suit her fancy. For the past 25 years, her airbrushed designs have graced motorcycles, helmets, leather jackets, wall hangings, and more. She has the patience to pinstripe anything and is an accomplished artist in oils, watercolors and more. Her artistic talent is obvious from the moment you enter her well-designed yard. To knock on her door, you must first walk over her mosaic entrance created in marble that showcases the front door. When asked what medium she prefers, Deb replied, Right now, I am enjoying using my chain saw to create bears out of scraps of wood. Chain saw? When asked how she knew she could do that, she laughingly stated, you can learn anything on YouTube. Well, you have to have some talent and knowhow in the first place to even think you can create art with a chainsaw! Her overall philosophy of life is Never be afraid to try something new. That is evident in everything she has done in her life to date. She created Jungle Designs in 1979 after closing her plant rental business and has been a working artist most of her Artist Deb holds her best friend and critic Jezebel while showing off her art work space. What makes this place so wonderful is the people, the endless array of things to do and the wonderful outdoors... Debbie Lynn Ottinger life. Most of her commissions have come through word-ofmouth and her website How does she feel about living in Carson City? What makes this place so wonderful is the people, the endless array of things to do and the wonderful outdoors where Jezebel (her short-haired Chihuahua) and I can explore. Already impressed with Carson City s history, she embraced the map project stating, I loved learning so much more about this incredibly historic city and about the people who once occupied these beautiful homes. DeLongchamps designed our most historic buildings The Heroes Memorial Building is one of the three buildings designed by DeLongchamps that continues to give our city character and a link to our history. It is part of the State Office of the Attorney General. Unless you are into architecture, it s not often likely you ll wonder about the architect who may have designed a building that catches your attention. Some of Carson City s finest buildings that give our city character and a historic flavor were designed by Frederic DeLongchamps, who was asked in 1919 to serve as the official State Architect the only person to hold that title until the position was abolished in A Reno native, born on June 2, 1882 and a 1904 graduate of UNR, DeLongchamps had no formal training, starting as a draftsman for the U.S. Surveyor and is considered to be one of the most prolific architects in the state. His hands-on training came from working with a San Francisco architect to rebuild structures devastated by the earthquake of Upon returning to Reno, he was commissioned to design the Washoe County Courthouse that led to designing an additional nine courthouses along with the Reno ost Office now being converted into retail space. His structures in Carson City include the government buildings across the street from the State Capitol that were the Heroes Memorial Building, Supreme Court and Ormsby County Courthouse, now the offices of the Attorney General. He also designed the former Carson City Justice Court but built to originally house the Bell Telephone Company - at the corner of Carson and Telegraph Streets that is reputed to be one-of-a-kind and unique to Carson City. He also designed the legislative wings of the capitol when the legislature outgrew the second floor of the capitol. His buildings are readily recognized once you become aware of his architectural style comprising art deco and classical styles. Many of his works are now listed on the National Register of Historic laces. DeLongchamps died in 1969 leaving a long legacy of his works all over, northern California and more. It is fitting we honor this great architect on the anniversary of his 134th birthday. Yet another reason to be #Carsonroud!

Candidates for Carson City Mayor Candidates for Assembly District 40 Continuing our #Carson roud Series: 2.5 miles of history along Carson City s Kit Carson Blue Line Trail Many come through our doors asking for information on the historic downtown. The AAA Tour Guide lists the 2.5-mile Kit Carson Blue Line Trail as one of the top attractions in Carson City. The revised and updated Carson City Historic Blue Line Map was created by the very talented Deb Lynn Ottinger who undertook the challenge to reformulate and update the original Blue Line map created in the mid 1990 s to celebrate Carson City s unique historic homes. Many longtime residents still refer to these home by names instead of address. As was fitting for our city, the heart of, the West Side Historic District was placed on the National ark Service National Register of Historic laces in 2011 and borders the sections between Mountain Street to the west, Carson Street to the east, Fifth Street to the south and W. Robinson to the north though there are some interesting houses found a bit to the north of W. Robinson located a bit out of the walking district. So historic is our city that the National ark Service has designated 44 local sites on their register. Note many of the homes and government buildings were built from the sandstone quarried by prisoners from the now decommissioned State rison, built in While the Kit Carson Blue Line trail can be accessed at any point, we suggest the start of your historic tour begin with a visit to the wonderful U.S Mint/ State Museum where you will receive an overview of the uniqueness of this state and Carson City s contribution to the overall state history. On this map, you will note the ghostly symbol denoting the possibility of a spirit still in residence if you believe that sort of thing! Notice most of the front doors homes within the historic district face the capitol. This was at the behest of founder Abram Curry who also declared streets at that time to be 60 feet wide to allow horses and wagons to turn around within the street. Also notice, the horse tethers and concrete blocks used to allow passengers to gracefully enter or exit their buggies or carriages. Many of our streets are named after our founders. If you see a historical marker in front of the home, stop for a minute to read it. Those of you from the upper East Coast or Midwest will recognize much of the architecture since many of our early residents emigrated from those areas. Some of the homes are still occupied by ghostly presences that just never wanted to leave Carson City Appeal Sunday, May 22, 2016 A17 -and may be buried in our historic Lone Mountain Cemetery - and these stubborn ghosts are noted on the map using a ghostly symbol. There is plenty of parking in the downtown as noted on the map. The ghostly research came from the book, Haunted Carson City by Janet Jones and is available for purchase at the Chamber gift shop, 1900 S. Carson Street at the entrance to the NV State RR Museum. The homes are not open for public viewing since they are owner occupied or places of business. You will have to be content to just admire the outside while reading this historical vignette or listening in to the narrative found on the free app produced by the Carson City Visitors Bureau found at download-app/.

This is a family-friendly museum featuring a ghost town, mine, various exhibits and the Under One Sky exhibit showcasing the region s Native Americans.

This statue is to honor the frontiersman, guide, Indian agent and American Army officer. He served as a guide for John C. Fremont who named the Carson River in his honor. Kit Carson is said to never have set foot in Carson City and spent most of his time in New Mexico. He died in May 1868 at Fort Lyon, Colorado and is buried along with his third wife in Taos, NM. The statue was unveiled on June 10, 1989 and depicts him tracking his way through the mountains looking for an easy route across the Sierra. Other statues can be found in the Colorado cities of Trinidad, Colorado Springs, and Denver. There is also a Carson City, MI, but this small city was named after our city in 1887 by a former resident Thomas Scott. 30. Supreme Court, Legislative ark, became home to the Supreme Court in In residence are seven justices elected to six year terms. The Court houses the law library and is open to the public. 31. State Legislature, 401 S. Carson Street, was built in 1970 when the legislature outgrew the space within the state capitol. The 63 members (21 in the Senate and 42 in the Assembly) meet for 120 days beginning the first Monday in February every odd-numbered year. Ours is the third smallest bicameral legislature after Alaska (60 members) and Delaware (62 members). The building is open to the public and there is a great gift store on the main floor featuring gifts. This map denotes the most famous homes along the Kit Carson Blue Line Trail. There are many other historic homes within the city. Compiled by Ronni Hannaman, Carson City Chamber of Commerce, 2016.

5 A20 Sunday, May 22, 2016 Appeal TRAVELS with Marilyn Marilyn Foster Travels with Marilyn This is the time of year when thoughts turn to travel. Memorial Day weekend finds many taking to the skies and roads, followed in a few weeks by the families taking advantage of being together during the summer school break. That s all fine, but I prefer to travel when there are less people all vying for the same space in a museum or other attraction and I can leisurely wander through towns without getting jostled. I like to take my time to look at as much as I can and absorb what I am seeing. When I go to the Louvre in aris, I want to be able to study the famous picture of Mona Lisa and not wait in a line for a 2-second glimpse. Sometimes, though, you have to travel in the summer. In mid-august I will be traveling with six others from this area on a Norwegian Coastal Voyage after visiting the Scandinavian Capitals. There s a small window of opportunity for good weather in this part of the world. Can t wait to pack my bags. But, first, I will be going back to my childhood home in Nebraska to see family. Though I know it is just barely coming into the summer season, I want to remind you of the wonderful holiday break the Chamber is offering Christmas in London! When you read the itinerary, you will want to go for certain. I can t think of a more appropriate place to be during the holidays enjoying a Dickens Christmas and a Christmas High Tea at Harrod s. Book that before it s all gone. Christmas is not that far away! If you love tulips, there s no better place to see the largest variety of tulips in the world than in the land of tulips Holland. There s an amazing offer right now that if you book by June 23rd, you ll receive $500 off per person. That s no small piece of change! If you can get through the hassle of having to fly these days, the end journey is well worth it when you arrive at your destination. Long gone are the days when flying was exciting and pleasant. Forget those days. It s become one long line after another beginning at airport check-in and unless you fly first-class, you are schmushed in coach seating with barely enough room to sit comfortably, no matter how small you are. And, no matter how great the tour operator is, they can t control the airlines and all we can do is grin and bear it and zone out or bring a good novel. When you think about it, though, it is still pretty amazing to be able to fly almost anywhere in the world within a day. The Chamber is offering some amazing tours next year, but space doesn t allow me to profile them all, so be sure to come to the Chamber s Travel Club Happy Hour beginning at 5:30 p.m. on May 25th. You must rsvp, however! I ll be seeing you somewhere in this wonderful great big world of ours. So much to explore and learn. I m ready, are you? A widow, Marilyn, at age 86, is a consummate traveler who has traveled many times with the Chamber Travel Club. Judy Kassemos, Stephanie Wilkinson, Melanie & Gary Boudreau, and Marguerite Conway enjoyed their visit to Collette s America s South & Cajun Country in April.
