The Nevada Veterans Coalition remembered 24 veterans Thursday in the first unaccompanied service since February at the Northern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery.
Because of restrictions placed on state facilities because of the coronavirus pandemic, all services were placed on hold although the individual veterans were interred at the cemetery. The state cemetery is one of two located in Nevada. The other cemetery is located in Boulder City.
NVC member and narrator Sharon Serenko said the service gives veterans their final closure and thanks them for their duty to country and their heroism to service. She reflected on the veterans as defenders of freedom, country and flag and said their deeds will live in our hearts. 
“Every monument tell a story of a life given in service to others,” Serenko stressed.

    Friday, July 3, 2020 1:00 AM
    As we move into the mid-summer months, I can see the affects of hot weather on many lawns.
    Most lawns in our area are composed of cool-season grasses (bluegrass, ryegrass and fescue).
    These grasses do well in the spring and fall due to the cooler temperatures. However, when the heat of the summer comes along, they shut down and go dormant.

    Tuesday, June 30, 2020 1:00 AM
    The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Nevada Department of Corrections (NDOC), and Institute for Applied Ecology (IAE) have partnered for a 5th straight year to engage offenders in restoration of the Greater sage-grouse habitat in Nevada. 
     The successful Sagebrush in Prisons Project has delivered more than half a million plants since it started in 2016. 
    This year, the challenges caused by COVID-19 have not prevented offenders at Northern Nevada Correctional Center (NNCC), Warm Springs Correctional Center (WSCC) and Lovelock Correctional Center (LCC) from growing more than 300,000 sagebrush plugs for local BLM Field Offices to restore public lands scorched by wildfire.
