  • Wood duck boxes to be set between Lovelock, Rye Patch
    Wednesday, February 26, 2020 1:00 AM
    Pershing County’s wood duck population could explode in the future thanks to a Ducks Unlimited project. Lowry High School shop students in Winnemucca built 35 wood duck nest boxes and sites are needed along the Humboldt River between Lovelock and Rye Patch.
    Ducks Unlimited Chairman-elect Lee Bosch of Winnemucca told Pershing County leaders there are wood ducks in the Lovelock area so this is the best place to start the nest box project. The boxes will be mounted about eye level on poles driven into the ground. The elevated boxes should protect ducklings from predators so the project could increase the wood duck count.

    Tuesday, February 25, 2020 1:00 AM
    RENO, Nev. (AP) — If a picture is worth a thousand words, one viral photo of a Reno-area firefighter must be worth a million.
    It was an image of Capt. Dave Soldavini, a U.S. Forest Service firefighter, cradling a baby kangaroo in his arms.
    “It is the cutest picture I've ever seen of him,'' his wife, Daphne Osell, told the Reno Gazette Journal . “You can see it in his face. I think that's what so many people responded to. You can really see and feel how enamored he is of this little animal he's holding.''
    In the photo, Soldavini is smiling as he looks down at the baby kangaroo, called a joey.

    The Humboldt County Commissioners heard from the county’s Comptroller Gina Rackley regarding the possibility of increasing the county tax rate levy for the fiscal year 2020-2021. 
    Rackley said the current rate is 0.7512 per $100 assessed valuation and is the second lowest in the state after Esmeralda County. 
    Commissioner Ron Cerri spoke first regarding the possibility of property tax raises. “I have no appetite in increasing rates at this time. We're going to be looking at potentially putting adding a fuel tax to diesel and increasing property rates ... I don't think this is the proper time to add more to the citizens.”

    The Humboldt County Commission approved an agreement between Dominion Voting Systems and the county to provide the county with a mobile ballot printing system. The commission approved the agreement at the Feb. 18 meeting.

ProVote Solutions is a government print manufacture that is an election printer in the United States.
