Battery cases result in suspended sentences

Two people convicted of separate instances of battery with substantial bodily harm received suspended sentences on Tuesday. Michael Blummer admitted to hitting another man in the head with a bottle during a March 7 incident at the Johnson Lane sandpits. The victim received nine stitches over his right eye. District Judge Tod Young sentenced Blummer, 19, to 14 months to 5 years in prison and suspended the sentence. Attorney Kris Brown said the incident occurred while Blummer was intoxicated. Blummer was in Western Regional Drug Court at the time. "He did 32 days in jail before he was released," she said. "He assumed responsibility for the act. Alcohol makes him a monster and then he does horrible things." Young said he thought the attack seemed random. Brown said there had been a history of animosity between Blummer and the victim. Prosecutor Laurie Trotter told Young she thought Blummer should be sent to a 190-day regimental discipline program. However, Young pointed out that he couldn't both sentence Blummer and order him to boot camp. Trotter said that while Blummer had seven arrests in two years and was in drug court when the incident happened, prosecutors took into account that he admitted what he'd done, his age and that it was his first violent offense. Blummer said he brought some of the restitution he owed with him to court, and that he was going to remain sober. Blummer's probation is four years. He was ordered to pay $2,019.46 restitution and to complete drug court and 200 hours of community service. "I'm going to be watching you for a long time," Young told Blummer. A Gardnerville woman who slashed her boyfriend's arm with a knife was sent to jail for six months as a condition of her suspended prison sentence for battery with substantial bodily harm. Gwyn Douglas, 43, was ordered not to have any contact with the victim until there was evidence that the man was undergoing treatment for drug use. Douglas and the victim had been living together for six months when they got into an argument and Douglas allegedly tried to stab him. He put up his arm and deflected the blow from his abdomen. Defense attorney Kris Brown said Douglas has a history of drug abuse and mental health issues. Douglas told authorities she and her boyfriend had been using methamphetamine for weeks. "The state is concerned about the safety of those around her," Prosecutor Rick Casper said. Douglas said she has been attending alcoholics and narcotics anonymous meetings. She said she had been clean for 13 years before she relapsed. "I hurt someone I love," she said. Young sentenced her to 2-5 years in prison, and suspended the sentence on condition she spend six months in jail, and not have any contact with her boyfriend until he's also in treatment. Neither victim testified on Tuesday. The man Blummer struck has moved out of state.

Girls’ Golf: Wurster wins third league tournament

STATELINE – Even though Bethany Wurster represents Douglas High School and Alexis Holmes plays for South Tahoe High, they are more like golf teammates. As good “teammates” do, Wurster and Holmes root for one aonother and inspire each other. For two of the top golfers in the Sierra Division, and the state for that matter, a friendship has formed out of competition. “It will fuel you to strive for something better. You just want to beat them. You love them, but you want to beat them at the same time,” Wurster said Tuesday afternoon following a 3-over-par round of 75 that topped the Sierra Division event at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course. “It’s kind of like, ‘Oh, I hope you do well, but I hope I do better.’” Wurster, who birdied six holes, finished seven strokes ahead of Holmes, who came in third with an 82. The last of Wurster’s birdies on No. 18 cost Holmes a dinner. “Once I get my scoring figured out, it’s going to be fun,” said Holmes, who believes mismanagement of her game at times prevents her from scoring in the 70s. “I’m driving the ball really well, but I’m just hitting bad irons. I overcompenstate sometimes when I shouldn’t, so I’m 20 yards long, and it’s very difficult to two-putt from there. “Hopefully by zone I’ll get it figured out.” The two friends played Edgewood Tahoe on Sunday in preparation for Tuesday’s round, and Wurster beat Holmes 74-76 by eagling the final hole. Bishop Manogue’s Mackenzie Souers broke up the 1-2 Wurster-Holmes finish by shooting an 80. Alex Phillips, the defending state champion and also playing in the group with Wurster and Holmes, came in fifth with an 85. “It’s the first time all three have played together,” said STHS coach Marsha Butler. “Bethany and Alexis have developed a really good friendship, but they are always real competitive with each other.” Manogue, the defending state champions, were far superior than their division foes on Tuesday, as four Miners scored 90 or better en route to a 339 team total. Damonte Ranch was second with 419 strokes and Galena and Carson tied for third at 422. South Tahoe, which placed third in the previous tournament, finished sixth at 458. The Vikings’ Morgan Murphy shot 109 and Brittany Rumble fired a 118. Team scores 1. Manogue 439, 2. Damonte Ranch 419, 3. Galena 422, 3. Carson 422, 5. Fallon 453, 6. South Tahoe 458, 7.

Drug court ordered for 20-year-old

A 20-year-old Gardnerville Ranchos man, accused of making four sales of marijuana in an undercover sting, was sentenced Tuesday to Western Regional Drug Court in lieu of prison. Steven Blummer pleaded guilty to two counts of conspiracy to violate the Uniform Controlled Substances Act. According to reports, he sold marijuana on four occasions in May. Lawyer Derrick Lopez said he’d seen a dramatic change in his client. “Before, he’d skated through much of his life and hadn’t been caught. When he was caught, it was huge. It all came crashing down of what can happen,” Lopez said. “He is very young. He just turned 20,” Lopez said. “There is no question what he was doing was terribly wrong. If he uses this opportunity to change his life, everybody benefits. If he’s not sincere, that will show.” Lopez said Blummer had a lot to lose if he fails drug court. “He wants to do something with his life. If convicted of the felonies he deserves, that certainly sets him back. He is prepared to make himself a better person no matter what the court does,” Lopez said. Blummer said he wanted an opportunity to change. “I don’t want to be dependent on drugs. I become careless and lazy and would never do anything for my life,” he said. Gamble asked if Blummer had believed that marijuana wasn’t harmful. “It’s no good,” Blummer said. “I don’t recommend anyone use it or become dependent. I did enjoy it, but it’s not a reality. I didn’t plan for college or go out and look for a job. Now, every day is better. I am enthused to go to work, I am enthused to go to counseling.” Gamble told Blummer that Lopez “served a huge purpose (on Blummer’s behalf) to engineer what was clearly sales cases.” Had Blummer been convicted of sales, he would be ineligible for drug court. “The district attorney’s office recognized your youth. Everyone including me has reason to hope you can go on and live a good life. At age 20, you’ve got at least 60 years to go on and live a regular life or smoke dope,” Gamble said. He ordered Blummer to appear Dec. 9 for drug court. “Do well with this, Mr. Blummer, or I won’t be nearly so nice if you come back here,” Gamble said.

Golf: Wurster wins third regional title in four years

SPARKS – It was a huge day for Carson Valley golfers Tuesday afternoon at the NIAA 4A Regional Golf Championships at Red Hawk. Carson High’s girls golf team reached the state tournament for the first time in coach Terry Gingell’s eight-year tenure as head coach, and Douglas High’s Bethany Wurster won the 4A regional individual title for the third time in four years. Spanish Springs won the team title with a 36-hole total of 684, including a 338 on Tuesday. Carson was next with a 714, which included a 360 after an opening-round 354. Bishop Manogue was third at 726. Wurster won the individual title with a 151, five shots better than Tess Jones of Spanish Springs. McQueen’s Kelsey Roberts was third with a 159. “Bethany kept her focus and was able to pull off her third regional title,” Douglas coach Steve Gustafson said. “She struggled a bit the second day. There were some tough pin placements, a little wind, and the pressure from Tess Jones. “At one point, they were dead even. Bethany carded a birdie on sixteen, which gave her the motivation needed to finish strong.” Douglas finished fifth as a team (763) behind Reno. “As a team, they played better than any coach could ask,” Gustafson said. “We were not the strongest team in the field, but the kids shot their season bests. “Fifth place was quite an accomplishment for this team. We didn’t have a lot of experienced players, besides Bethany, most of our girls started playing within the past year.” Tawnie Wentz took 16th (95-91-186), Molly Jordan was 37th (107-106-213), Emily Gosselin was 39th (105-110-215), Megan Welch was 41st (113-108-221) and Devyn Hotho was 47th (119-113-232) for Douglas.
