    Tuesday, January 18, 2022 1:00 AM

  • Yucca Mountain remains in debate over nuclear waste storage
    Tuesday, January 18, 2022 1:00 AM
    Mounting opposition to proposed nuclear waste storage sites in Texas and New Mexico has kept Yucca Mountain in Nevada in the national debate over what to do with the growing stockpile of radioactive material scattered around the country.
    The Biden administration is opposed to Yucca Mountain and announced plans this month to send waste to places where state, local and tribal governments agree to accept it. That stance is shared by Nevada elected officials, tribal leaders and business and environmental groups.
    But until the 1987 Nuclear Waste Policy Act is changed by Congress, the proposed radioactive waste repository 90 miles north of Las Vegas remains the designated permanent storage site for spent fuel rods from commercial nuclear plants.

    Wednesday, January 12, 2022 1:00 AM
    In the final days of 2019, Ches Carney noticed something strange on the bulletin boards at the Northern Nevada gold mines where he had worked for nearly three decades. Stores in the nearby town of Elko were playing holiday music, but Carney was upset: The labor union documents, normally posted to bulletin boards, had disappeared.

  • Senior Center director bringing new tastes to the kitchen
    Tuesday, January 11, 2022 1:00 AM
    Many Lovelock residents enjoy flan – baked custard desserts topped with caramel. But senior center director Gisselle Canales, Kelli Brown and Carmen Jimenez added a twist to Christmas dessert this past holiday season.
    They made Chocoflan, chocolate cake on the bottom with flan on top. Not only was it a hit. It was a sign of things to come. 
    Canales respects traditions but also believes you’re never too old to try something new. She brings that philosophy to the canary yellow building on 630 Western Avenue, the Pershing County Senior Center.
  • Indy Q+A: Veterans services chief on new aid for Nevada military families
    Wednesday, January 5, 2022 1:00 AM
    When it comes to helping veterans, officials say it’s not so much a lack of resources, but more that people don’t know about them.
    In the past year, state lawmakers have passed bills giving members of the National Guard a sales tax holiday — a weekend on which they can skip paying the sales tax — and approved changes that make it easier for the military community and their family members to pursue higher education for free. 
  • Harry Reid remembered as a fighter, skilled Senate dealmaker
    Wednesday, January 5, 2022 1:00 AM
    He was an accomplished amateur boxer who’d rather dance. But Harry Reid was fond of reminding his opponents that he knew how to fight, too.
    That skill took him far — from poverty in Searchlight, Nevada, to the pinnacle of the U.S. Senate.
    “I don’t have people saying ‘he’s the greatest speaker,’ ‘he’s handsome,’ ‘he’s a man about town,’” Reid told The New York Times in 2010 after a hard-fought reelection victory. “But I don’t really care. I feel very comfortable with my place in history.”
  • Is Reno the next lithium capital? Companies are looking to Nevada for ‘white gold’
    Wednesday, January 5, 2022 1:00 AM
    Inside an empty office building in downtown Reno, on a cool morning in December, Richard Morrison looked out across Virginia Street, which cuts across town. The office space is being developed for NeoLith, an offshoot of Schlumberger, a global oilfield services company. 
    But in Nevada, it’s not oil that the company is after. 
    Hundreds of miles away, in the Clayton Valley outside Tonopah, NeoLith is looking for lithium, a key ingredient needed to move away from combustible engines and toward electric vehicles. In this venture, its strategic partner is Panasonic Energy of North America, which operates out of the Gigafactory, what the company says is “the largest lithium-ion battery factory in the world.”
