  • Fog science
    Last week the citizens of Winnemucca found themselves in a fog, literally, for multiple days. Since this weather isn’t common for the area, what causes these low lying clouds to creep in and sit for days?
    United States National Weather Service Meteorologist Larry Whitworth said fog happens when an area sees precipitation followed by a high pressure system that traps the moisture in the region. 
    Whitworth said that last week’s storm that brought rain and snow  brought the moisture that was released into the lower levels of air near the ground and then was kept there by the high pressure.

  • Safe Haven rescues a tiger
    Over Thanksgiving weekend, Safe Haven Wildlife Sanctuary rolled out the red carpet for a new tiger. The 18-month-old female Bengal hybrid would love Safe Haven, but first, Dave and Lynda Sugasa had to bring her home.
    A training facility had deemed the tiger unsuitable for the entertainment industry. Trainers dropped her off at a temporary holding facility in Bakersville, Calif.
    The Sugasas agreed to transport the animal to their 320-acre sanctuary in Imlay, where she’d receive lifetime care.
    The weather forecast called for storms, so the couple left a day earlier than they’d planned, on Saturday, Nov. 30. Before embarking on their adventure, they ran down a mental checklist of every contingency.

Lowry's Preston Snow goes up for a layup in Tuesday's game against Fernley.
Lowry's Preston Snow goes up for a layup in Tuesday's game against Fernley.
Friday, December 13, 2019 1:00 AM
About the only excitement left on a late Tuesday night is if the Lowry High School boys basketball team was going to score 100 points.
To get there, the Buckaroos needed to score 23 points in the final eight minutes of play. Making it even tougher, all eight of those minutes were on a running clock when Lowry pushed the lead to 35 points with 1:33 left in the third quarter.
Mason Ellingford ended the suspense with a put back in the final minute to give Lowry a 100-49 win over Fernley.
“Everything started with Chance (Huitt) and Anthony (Hemp) on defense,” said LHS coach Chad Peters. “Chance got in early foul trouble with two fouls and we asked him to guard their best guy. He did a good job of staying out of foul trouble and held his man down. Chance was the only guy that did not score tonight but was just as important in the win than anybody else all night long. Anthony came off the bench and picked up the slack. He got hot, hit some shots and played great defense.”
  • Nevada's Weber honored as CoSIDA  Academic All-America selection

  • Lowry makes long trek to Las Vegas to start season at Green Valley Duals
    The Lowry High School wrestling team hit the road last weekend for one of its longest road trips of the season to compete at the Green Valley Duals in Las Vegas.
    The Buckaroos got a look at teams and wrestlers they don;’t see during the year and picked up two wins in five duals.
    “I knew what it would be when I signed up for it,” said LHS coach John Brooks. “I knew there would be some good teams. It would have been nice to get a couple more duals in, making that long of a trip. It was a good chance for our guys to see some different teams and wrestlers instead of going up against guys we will see each week.”
    Lowry picked up a 42-36 win over Basic from Las Vegas on the strength of a pin by Kole Mattson over David Trukeen in the first period of their 285-pound match.
