    The University of Nevada, Reno has secured $12 million in federal money it will use to start decontaminating a campus building that was once used to test radium.
    The school's Facilities Services Building has been vacated and the 30 employees working there have been relocated since low levels of radiation were detected in 2016.
  • Outdoor cooking gear
    Thursday, September 17, 2020 1:00 AM
    Any good western movie has a scene where a cowboy is cooking on an open fire with their pot hanging over the flames.  While cooking over a flame is a viable way to prepare food, it is usually the coals that are more desirable and useful for cooking.  Dutch oven cooking is an easy way to cook delicious food and fill stomachs that are hungry from a day outdoors.

    President Donald Trump’s campaign is narrowing its focus in a lawsuit against Nevada’s expanded use of mail-in ballots for the 2020 general election, now specifically challenging a provision allowing ballots received up to three days after the election to be counted if their postmark is unclear.
    In a motion for summary judgment, attorneys for the president’s re-election campaign narrowed their legal challenge against AB4, the law approved during the late summer special session of the Legislature.

    Lab coat and webcam on, Atrio Ricarte pushes through his PowerPoint presentation over Webex.
    Although the setup on the web conferencing app is reminiscent of a now all-too-familiar online class or working-from-home videoconference, the content the Las Vegas based registered nurse is sharing may just save a life.

    A Las Vegas judge has ruled that marijuana license winners that have not had background checks on all of their part-owners — even ones with small shares — cannot use the license to open a dispensary unless they correct the issue.
    District Court Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez issued a permanent injunction on Thursday, bringing a level of closure to many major issues in a drawn-out legal case so large it’s sometimes called “World War Weed.”

    A Lake Tahoe-area veterinarian and former professor at the University of California, Davis who oversaw treatment of horses at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing has pleaded guilty to federal tax evasion.
    The U.S. Attorney's office in Sacramento says 63-year-old Jack Ray Snyder of Truckee, California admitted he under-reported nearly $350,000 in income from 2011-14. More than $212,000 of that was due for the 2011 tax year.

     In early August, history, classic television and a whole lot of beach mingled to create a milestone in Lake Tahoe real estate.
    That's when a 31-acre estate in Zephyr Cove on the lake's east shore — once part of the vast holdings of the Bourne family — sold for $38 million.
    On ``Bonanza,'' the long-running TV Western, the Cartwrights galloped across the property on horseback in the opening credits. Unseen in those credits: a private sandy beach stretching nearly 400 feet.

    Nevada officials raised numerous concerns Tuesday about permitting a proposed project to pipe large quantities of Colorado River water roughly 140 miles from Lake Powell to southern Utah, a controversial plan that would place new demands on the river. 
    Six of the seven states that use the Colorado River also sent a letter to federal water managers Tuesday asking them to refrain from completing project permitting until a consensus among the states could be reached on “outstanding legal and operational concerns.”
  • As deadline nears, officials fear census undercount
    Wednesday, September 16, 2020 1:00 AM
    As the end of the census approaches, Nevada's lieutenant governor said she was alarmed by data indicating an undercount in spite of population growth and information from rural communities and other organizations suggesting gaps in the count.
    A comparison of county census response rates between 2010 and 2020 shows more than half of Nevada’s counties have yet to hit response rates from the 2010 census with only a few weeks left for the count, Lt. Gov. Kate Marshall, who chairs the panel, told members of the Nevada Complete Count Committee at a Tuesday meeting. An undercount could mean less federal funding for a state facing an unprecedented budget crisis, because federal distributions are often designated on a per-capita basis using census counts.
