    Police beefed up nighttime staffing after social media posts urged people from San Francisco and Portland, Oregon, to come to the ``sideshow'' in Reno, Police Lt. Michael Browett said.

    What should you do with fall alfalfa? Leave it? Cut it? Graze it? Each of these options can be correct under appropriate conditions. Making the best decision requires balancing the associated rewards and risks with each option. In the past, producers have been advised to cut hay 4-6 weeks prior to a killing frost (The average first frost date for most of Northern Nevada is October 1st- 10th). This advice is based on the fact that alfalfa plants need time to store carbohydrates in their root system prior to a killing frost in order to prevent winter kill. About 50 percent of the stored carbohydrates are used during the winter for plant survival. The remaining carbohydrates are available in the spring for initial herbage growth.

    I mentioned cognitive a few weeks ago. Since then, I have thought, researched, reflected, and decided to expand this idea further. Dr. Artz at our Dementia Friendly Summit suggested that doctors check our blood pressure, weight, and height, so why don’t they also pay attention to our cognitive health? “How is your brain doing today?” might be an opening question. Key elements of cognitive health include the regular diet, exercise, social participation, and plenty of sleep routine you well know, but how to prioritize and why? I’m guessing each person will describe a unique order, as in “Which came first? The chicken or the egg?” This brings me back to beginning teachers. I’d remind them that our #1 job is education.

  • Wildlife agencies work to restore wetlands for declining Great Basin shorebird populations
    Tuesday, October 4, 2022 1:00 AM
    On a warm September morning, Mike Goddard pointed his scope toward a marshy pond within the Stillwater National Wildlife Refuge. What Goddard hoped to spot: The many migratory birds that forage in the shallow shores of the wetlands, once abundant in this area outside of Fallon.
    “The short, stout ones with long, straight bills are long-billed dowitchers,” he observes, peering into the mounted spotting scope. “The big, white ones are American avocets. Then there are some small sandpipers over there to the west… We’ll go up and do a count here real quick.”
  • Nevada takes shot to end Nuclear Regulatory 
Commission's Yucca license process
    Tuesday, October 4, 2022 1:00 AM
    Nevada is asking the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to revisit the issue of Yucca Mountain —where the federal government has long sought to build a national nuclear waste repository in the Nevada desert —  to keep the project from getting a license.
    The move to dismiss the Yucca licensing process, which has been suspended for 11 years since Congress stopped funding it, would set the project back years if a future administration tried to revive it and if Nevada continued to oppose the project. 
    “[T]he lingering fiction of the licensing application needs to end,” said Agency for Nuclear Projects Executive Director Fred Dilger in a brief interview this week.
