  • Fog science
    Thursday, December 12, 2019 1:00 AM
    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
    Thursday, December 12, 2019 1:00 AM
    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.

  • Painting, opera, Halloween, crafts, bake sale and bazaar
    Wednesday, December 11, 2019 1:00 AM
    It seems as if fall came to Battle Mt. really fast this year. It got cold and all of the trees lost their leaves fast.
    The seniors have enjoyed hot soup and a sandwich for lunch plus pizza meatloaf. Pizza meatloaf is when a pizza is on top of the meatloaf. It is cooked that way. It is good and the first I have ever eaten.
    Some of us went to St. Augustine’s Cultural Center in Austin to their opera. Jordon Dowman who is 26, and Madelein Dowman who is 21 were the singers.

  • Selecting and caring for your cut Christmas Tree
    Thursday, December 5, 2019 1:00 AM
    It is that time of year when many families bring the beauty and fragrance of a real Christmas tree into their homes as part of their holiday celebration. In so doing, they are following a tradition that dates to before Christianity and one that is not exclusive to any single religion.
    During Winter Solstice, early humans used evergreen boughs or entire trees in magical rites intended to secure protection of their homes and the return of vegetation in the spring. Romans decorated their homes with evergreens to celebrate Saturnalia, a winter festival honoring Saturnus, their god of agriculture. During the Middle Ages, Christians in Germany used an evergreen hung with red apples in their Christmas Eve “Adam and Eve's Day play,” depicting the events in the Garden of Eden.
