    The deadline to enroll in Dairy Margin Coverage (DMC) for the 2021 program year is fast-approaching. Dairy producers have until Friday, Dec. 11, 2020, to enroll in DMC through your local Farm Service Agency (FSA) county office here in Nevada.   At about $0.15 per hundredweight, DMC is one of the more cost-effective dairy risk management options available.  
    DMC offers reasonably priced protection to dairy producers when the difference between the all-milk price and the average feed cost (the margin) falls below a certain dollar amount selected by the producer.

    Two years after Nevada made history as the first U.S. state to have women compose a majority of its state Legislature, lawmakers will return to Carson City in 2021 with nearly 60 percent of the seats filled by female legislators — by far the largest percentage of any statehouse in the country.
    Though Democrats lost three seats in the Assembly and one in the state Senate after final vote totals were released over the weekend, one of the most notable changes heading into the 2021 Legislature will be the gender makeup; female lawmakers will now represent 38 seats in the 63-member body.

    I had planned to make this article light and soothing, however, I have discovered too many pressing issues to gloss over the melancholy of the season as holidays approach.
    I appreciate that Governor Sisolak has provided guidance for our health and safety, but it is trying to wear a mask, socially distance, and avoid traditional gatherings such as Thanksgiving dinner and holiday shopping. I cannot imagine how difficult it is for him to govern during this challenging time.

    As open enrollment kicked off on Nevada’s health insurance exchange earlier this month, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in a case challenging the constitutionality of the law on which the exchange was built, the Affordable Care Act.
    Though the court likely won’t rule on the case, California v. Texas, for several months, a majority of justices during oral arguments indicated they may be leaning towards finding only one portion of the federal health care law — the mandate requiring individuals to purchase health insurance — unconstitutional while leaving the rest of the law intact. That group of five justices includes three liberal justices and two conservative ones.
    Heather Korbulic, the executive director of Nevada’s health insurance exchange, said the hearing came as a “sigh of relief” for her and the heads of other state exchanges around the country, though she noted that it’s too early to know for certain which way the court will rule.
    “I think it’s cautious optimism,” Korbulic said, “and it’s very unique to see Supreme Court justices show their cards in the manner in which they did during the hearing.”

    A Clark County judge has denied a request from a Republican state Senate candidate to toss the election and have a do-over, saying the candidate had not proven there was improper voting widespread enough to reverse her 631-vote loss.
    District Court Judge Joe Hardy Jr. issued his ruling from the bench on Tuesday in a lawsuit brought by Republican April Becker, who lost a race against Democratic Senate Majority Leader Nicole Cannizzaro in a swingy Las Vegas-area district. It’s the latest setback in a series of attempts to scrap election results in Clark County.

    The Humboldt Development Authority (HDA) board received Humboldt County’s Nevada Economic Assessment (NEAP) Project report from Economic Development Officer Jan Morrison. The report provides local and state officials with a comprehensive look at the county’s socioeconomic status and will be used to determine future development in the region. 
    The report is unique in several ways. It provides data highlighting trends in a rural county. “It's the first comprehensive study that I've had my hands on that actually treats rural counties separately, instead of just broad-stroking us with everyone else,” Morrison told the board members at the Nov. 18 HDA meeting.

    The Nevada Supreme Court accepted the results of the 2020 general election on Tuesday, making official the results of a contentious election that has sparked numerous legal challenges seeking to cast doubt on the integrity of the electoral process in the Silver State.
    The seven Supreme Court justices, who met in both Las Vegas and Carson City, formally signed the canvass of votes after a brief presentation from Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske. Several of the justices lauded Cegavske, a Republican, and her staff for running a fair and transparent election despite significant challenges amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

    ``This is an awful question, but how many bodies does a freezer cooler hold?’’
    A Reno newspaper reporter posed it to the local coroner who fears the recent explosion of coronavirus cases could soon overtake not only northern Nevada’s ability to treat the sick, but also store the dead.

    Humboldt General Hospital and the City of Winnemucca are considering the construction of an emergency services complex near the Winnemucca Police Department after the hospital expressed interest in relocating the ambulance barn away from its current location in Winnemucca. 
    HGH CEO Tim Powers said that after the last city council meeting, he met with WPD Chief Dave Garrison to explore the possibility of constructing an emergency services complex building on city property adjacent from the police department building. 
    “We are very excited in exploring opportunities with the hospital and seeing what we can do,” said Garrison. “We have the land, it’s the perfect opportunity for EMS to respond to calls along the I-80 corridor and highway 95; it’s a great central location for that.”
