Wolf Pack Basketball Early Signing

in Local News/Sports

Reno, Nev. – With the early signing period came a flurry of new players across all Nevada athletic teams.

From Nevada Men's Basketball:

Parrish signs NLI to play for Wolf Pack
RENO, Nev. – University of Nevada head men’s basketball coach Eric Musselman has signed guard Eric Parrish to a National Letter of Intent to the play basketball for the Wolf Pack starting in 2019-20. Parrish will transfer from Bossier Parish Community College in Bossier City, La. where he is beginning his sophomore season. He will have two seasons to play for the Pack.
“We are extremely excited to add Eric Parrish to our program,” Mussleman said. “At 6-6 and the ability to play and guard multiple positions, he fits perfect with our style of play of position-less basketball. He has an extremely athletic first step and is explosive off the bounce with the basketball. We feel he is the type of player that can fill up the stat sheet in multiple areas and affect the game in a variety of ways. He will be a player that Wolf Pack fans love to watch with his energy.”
In his first three games this season for Bossier Parish he is averaging 15.7 points, nine rebounds, and four assists. From the field he is shooting 41.7 percent and 83.3 percent at the free throw line.

Parrish, a 6-6, 195-pound guard, played his freshman season at Akron where he made 21 starts and appeared in all 32 games for the Zips. He averaged 8.8 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 1.4 assists in 27 minutes per game. From the field he shot 51.7 percent, 32.4 percent from behind the arc and 62.1 percent at the free throw line.

A native of Cypress, Texas he played his prep basketball at Cypress Springs High School where he averaged 18.4 points, 8.2 rebounds, three assists, two steals and 1.6 blocks per game as a senior. He scored 1,132 points during his high school career and twice was named the team’s MVP. Parrish was a two-time all-district selection and a two-time academic all-district honoree.

 

Fireballs

in Local News/Uncategorized

 

By Associated Press |

RENO, Nev. (AP) – Astronomers say a loud explosion heard across a large swath of Nevada and California on Sunday morning was likely
caused by a meteor.

The sound of the explosion around 8 a.m. prompted a flood of calls to law enforcement agencies on both sides of the Sierra Nevada in the two states.

The explosion rattled windows and shook houses from Reno to
Winnemucca in Nevada, and from the Sacramento to Bakersfield areas in California.

Some people in the two states reported seeing a fireball streak across the sky at the same time.

Dan Ruby of the Fleischmann Planetarium at the University of Nevada, Reno, says the reports indicate the meteor broke up above Earth somewhere over the Sierra southwest of Reno.

There were no reports of earthquakes at the time.

Reno Home Sales Down

in Business/Real Estate

HOME SALES ACTIVITY BEGINS TO SLOW

BY JOHN SEELMEYER | The red-hot housing market in Reno and Sparks appears to be cooling.

That’s good news for families who despaired that they ever would be able to afford a starter home, and it’s dampening the ardor of some sellers.

The cooling is mostly the result of simple supply-and-demand, with a little nod to the changing seasons.

In the third quarter, 1,569 sales of single-family homes were recorded through the Northern Nevada Multiple Listing Service. That was down by 20 percent from a year ago, and it was down by 6 percent from the second quarter of this year.

The cooling market is reflected, too, in prices. Although they are up, the pace of increases is slowing.

The realty association says the median price of a home sold during September — $374,000 — was up 1 percent from the previous month. At times earlier this year, prices had jumped as much as 3 percent in a single month.
“The current slowdown in unit sales can’t be attributed to just one thing,” says Doug McIntyre, president of the real estate association and a Realtor with Reno Property Management.

For starters, sales often begin to slow in the autumn and winter months.

A bigger factor, McIntyre says, has been prices that climbed more rapidly than most families’ incomes. Rising mortgage interest rates priced even more potential buyers out of the market.

But as prices stabilize, and as the tight employment market in the region helps boost wages, more families will be able to afford homes.

Already, inventories of homes for sale are rising. The 1,377 single-family homes on the market in September represented a three-month supply. Last spring, only a one-month inventory was on the market.

Reno Helps The Homeless

in Local News

The City of Reno and Volunteers of America of Northern California and Northern Nevada held a graduation ceremony today for seven members of the most recent class of the Reno Works program. It took place at Reno City Hall.

The 12-week program provides a group of Community Assistance Center homeless shelter residents with classes focused on life and job skills as well as providing temporary employment through community improvement projects in area parks, improving public facilities, and cleaning along the river.

“Including this class, we’ve had 65 people graduate from the program so far,” said Vice Mayor Neoma Jardon, who helped establish Reno Works, along with VOA Regional Director Pat Cashell. “Many homeless in our community just need the opportunity and the tools to improve their lives. Reno Works provides them those skills and that chance.”

The sessions also incorporate safety training, interview skills, long-term employment preparedness, wrap-around case management, mentoring and a ready-to-rent curriculum.

The City of Reno and VOA said that Reno Works was made possible by another generous donation from Eldorado Resorts Reno.

This round of Reno Works included integrated behavioral health classes provided by Community Health Alliance. This is to provide additional support for issues related to addiction and mental health, which is often a contributing factor as to why many become homeless.

“The Reno Works program has helped people in our community transition out of homelessness by empowering them to take control of their lives and feel the pride of standing on their own two feet,” Cashell said.
