At its new location at 1307 Langley Drive, Suite B, in the Gardnerville Ranchos, Sandy’s Family Salon has added a new nail technician as well.

Natalie Kendrick has lived in Gardnerville for 16 years. She and husband Thomas have four young daughters.

Three years ago, Kendrick obtained her manicuring license and entered the field.

“I’m offering all nail services in a cozy atmosphere at a new, convenient location for Sandy’s Family Salon behind 7-Eleven in the Ranchos,” she said.

Kendrick is available from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and can be reached at 265-4444.

Gardnerville resident and stylist Sharon Rempt has joined ranks at Fifth Street Salon in Minden.

The beauty shop offers haircuts and styling for all ages, color, perms, nails, waxing and ear piercing.

Rempt has been in the business for 22 years, 17 years in Carson Valley, and the last five years at Hair Cottage.

“I listen to people and give them what they want, but give them what will work best with their lifestyle and what will work with their hair,” she said.

Fifth Street Salon is located at 1604 Esmeralda Ave., Minden. Rempt is available 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and evenings by appointment.

Rempt can be reached at 782-2813.

Pari-mutuel horse racing betting has been added to the many other sports betting opportunities at the Carson Valley Inn sports book located adjacent to the casino’s cabaret lounge and large island bar.

“We’re taking bets on horse racing at all major tracks including Santa Anita, Hollywood Park, Del Mar and Golden Gate Fields in California, plus Belmont Park in New York, Philadelphia Park, Gulf Stream Park and Calder in Florida, Churchill Downs in Kentucky and others,” said CVI Sports and Race Book Manager Walt Matson.

CVI owner Mike Pegram owns Lookin at Lucky, winner of the 2010 Preakness Stakes and one of the top contenders running in the Breeder’s Cup Classic on Nov. 6.

In addition to Pari-mutuel betting, CVI’s new race book also books trifectas, super trifectas, pick-fours, pick-sixes and pick-alls. Racing at most tracks can be viewed live on the TVs in the cabaret lounge and sports bar areas.
