Welcome to the Carson Valley Times, the Valley’s locally owned and locally operated news magazine covering Gardnerville, Minden and the surrounding area.
Our mission is simple — to tell the story of your Valley, one person at a time — hence our tagline, “It’s Your Valley.”
We provide human interest and feature stories about the people and places that give this community its unique character. This is also your one-stop spot for community events, local trends and issues, and daily news updates to help give you insight into the inner-workings of Carson Valley.
This is not a comprehensive news source, nor will it ever be. Rather, we view it as a vibrant hub of community information and imagery. It’s a place to learn more about where we have come from as a community, where we are going, and what is going on this weekend.
We are a free news source and we thrive on community input and submissions when it comes to photos and story ideas. We’ll welcome poems and short stories the same as we’ll welcome sports scores and cooking recipes.
This will always be a fluid endeavor and it is our priority to take the input of our readers and use it to directly shape what this Web site will be. So please speak up! We look forward to talking with you.
