Fifth and sixth grade students at French Ford Middle School got some semblance of normalcy last week when the classes participated in the long-standing Survivor Day, a tradition that started 18 years ago. Students — with their homeroom class — don buffs in separate colors and undertake activities that challenge their athleticism, teamwork, and mental skills. The games were followed by a barbecue. Mrs. Donovan’s 6th grade class won for the 6th graders and Mr. Rupp’s 5th grade class won for the 5th graders.

  • Carrier air wing completes Air Wing Fallon
    Carrier Air Wing (CVW) TWO “BROADSWORD” completed the new syllabus for Air Wing Fallon at the naval air station, and this new syllabus fully incorporated two new aircraft, the F-35C Lightning II and E-2D Hawkeye, to CVW-2 to mark another major step in preparation for their upcoming deployment later this year. 
    Naval Air Station Fallon operates as the leading training ground for naval air warfare. Their slogan, “train the way you fight; fight the way you train,” represents its aim to ensure mission readiness for all carrier air wings. This large-scale training exercise focuses on specific missions the wing may be asked to accomplish underway. Air Wing Fallon is a part of the Navy’s optimized fleet response plan (OFRP) which outlines maintenance, training, deployment and sustainment operations. Completing Air Wing Fallon is a necessary phase for all carrier air wings to obtain the required qualifications to deploy.

    However after over a year of facial coverings, the ability to see an unobstructed smiling face feels as if it is something to be celebrated in and of itself. 
    The Humboldt County School District made the decision to continue the mask mandate through the end of the 2020-2021 school year in hopes the Lowry High School graduation could be hosted free of the restrictions that have affected students for the last two years.

  • McDermitt graduates class of five
    MCDERMITT — After a wild ride the last two years, five McDermitt Combined seniors were able to get one last taste of normalcy this past Wednesday night.
    The graduates gathered one final time in front of friends and family under normal circumstances to celebrate 13 years of hard work.     
    “A graduation ceremony is always such a special occasion,” said third-year principal Dr. Leslie Molina. “The culmination of years of hard work, the actualization of goals attained and the acknowledgment of success achieved. So, it is only fitting that we gather tonight to honor these five young men and women as they close out their high school journey and begin a brand-new adventure.”

    Whatever occurs, it won’t change the opinion of gaming observers.
    Though there is apprehension from a few Nevada sportsbook operators about potential competition from the largest feeder market to casinos in Las Vegas and Reno, analysts and sports betting experts don’t believe sportsbooks in California — the nation’s leading Indian gaming state — will slice into Nevada’s multi-billion-dollar business.
