Nevada highways are no stranger to industry commerce and the large haul trucks that are at the forefront of transportation.
Truck freighting has been at the center of most commercial operations because of its flexibility and direct delivery capabilities for decades, but adjacency to distribution hubs on the west coast and industry-laden parcels spanning the open lands puts Nevada’s freight and rail development in a promising position to grasp a spot amongst the leaders in the country for logistics.

  • Cannabis businesses frustrated by $111-per-hour bills for state regulator tasks
    Wednesday, August 10, 2022 1:00 AM
    Steve Cantwell has been cultivating cannabis for the past seven years through Green Life Productions, his Pahrump-based farm, and had no problems with state regulators when Nevada’s health and taxation departments oversaw the industry.
    But that all changed when the Cannabis Compliance Board took over two years ago. At a recent routine visit, Cantwell said, the inspector raised a litany of concerns about the company’s organic growing methods, kicking off an ongoing tug-of-war that’s forced the company to pay nearly $30,000 for regulators to carry out their oversight duties.
  • In shifting Nevada economy, manufacturing taking more prominent role
    Tuesday, August 9, 2022 1:00 AM
    The manufacturing worker base grew to an all-time high of 5 percent of Nevada’s employment landscape, an increase that signals a shift in the local economy as the state has now exceeded the number of jobs it had pre-pandemic but also as the hospitality industry remains 33,000 jobs short of pre-COVID levels.
    Economists said it’s unclear whether hospitality-related employers are cutting costs and not hiring people back, or if workers left the industry voluntarily for other opportunities.

When Charlsie found him in her yard earlier this summer, he didn't have all his feathers yet and couldn't fly. She looked around for a nest but could not find one.
  • Geothermal plant wins appeal but pauses Nevada construction
    Tuesday, August 9, 2022 1:00 AM
    The developer of a geothermal power plant facing legal challenges in Nevada agreed Monday to suspend construction just hours after a U.S. appeals court had refused to halt the project that opponents say would harm an endangered toad and destroy sacred hot springs.
    In a ruling Monday morning, a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected a bid by environmentalists and a Nevada tribe to reinstate an injunction that temporarily blocked work earlier this year on Ormat Nevada's plant 100 miles east of Reno.
  • ‘Miracles in the Mucc’ raises awareness and funds for children’s hospitals
    Wednesday, August 3, 2022 1:00 AM
