Before and after: Mandy plucked out almost all her feathers due to stress. After three weeks at Safe Haven Wildlife Sanctuary, the 37-year-old Moluccan Cockatoo is beginning to grow them back again.
Before and after: Mandy plucked out almost all her feathers due to stress. After three weeks at Safe Haven Wildlife Sanctuary, the 37-year-old Moluccan Cockatoo is beginning to grow them back again.
Tuesday, June 15, 2021 1:00 AM
For 11 of her 37 years, Mandy the Moluccan Cockatoo lived with a cat lady and her husband, a cat couple. The cats saw Mandy as a tasty morsel, tantalizingly out of reach. Fight or flight was out of the question. So the bird developed a habit known as FDB, feather destructive behavior.
“This poor bird is one of the worst cases of feather-picking we’ve ever seen,” said Safe Haven director Lynda Sugasa after the couple’s granddaughter convinced them to give Mandy to the wildlife sanctuary about a month ago. “She was in a stressful environment with many cats, which most likely resulted in the extreme feather picking.”
  • Carrier air wing completes Air Wing Fallon
    Wednesday, June 16, 2021 1:00 AM
    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. 
  • Bright smiles & bright futures for LHS grads
    Tuesday, June 15, 2021 1:00 AM
    Smiling faces were seen across the Winnemucca Event Center on the evening of June 10, 2021. It was a sight one would traditionally qualify as normal for a high school graduation.
    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
    Tuesday, June 15, 2021 1:00 AM
    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.”

  • Why alfalfa is the best crop to have in a drought  
    Wednesday, June 9, 2021 1:00 AM
    This year, the local alfalfa producers are looking to receive only about one-third of the irrigation water they would normally receive due to the lack of water flow in the Humboldt River. 
    The recent rains were helpful in providing some much-needed precipitation, but will not be enough to sustain their crops during the summer months.
    Often, during drought conditions, the public looks for ways to conserve water resources, and some look at agriculture as not being the best use of our water. Many are critical of growing alfalfa during drought conditions, because they say it is using more water than other crops.

  • Lovelock Street Fever attracts vintage vehicles
    Tuesday, June 8, 2021 1:00 AM
    Classic car owners agreed that one of the best things about the Lovelock Street Fever Car Show is the location. The annual show & shine attracted 55 car buffs this year including Lovelock resident Don Meissner and his 1948 Chevy 3100 pickup to the courthouse park.
    “This park makes a beautiful place for a car show,” he said.
    Parked on the grass next to Meissner’s pickup was Maxine Groso’s 1964 Corvette Stingray. Groso said they went to Hot August Nights for about 15 years but will be skipping it this year.
