This June 30 2021 photo shows a century-old siren in Minden, Nev. Efforts to silence the century-old siren that blares every night at 6 p.m. are sparking debates over how to confront the region's history of racism and violence. The Washoe Tribe of Nevada and California associates the siren with a historic "sundown ordinance" that once made it illegal for them to be in Minden and neighboring Gardnerville after nightfall. Residents of the mostly white town defend it as a tradition that marks time and honors first responders. (AP Photo/Sam Metz)
