  • Candidates field questions during Q&A session
    Tuesday, May 24, 2022 1:00 AM
    Voting is a fundamental element of a democratic society and allows citizens to have their say in how their local government is run. Being an informed voter is just as important as voting itself, as it is every voter’s responsibility to know how public officials will articulate their civic duties. 
    Meet the Candidates Night, hosted by the Humboldt County Chamber of Commerce at the Convention Center, provided voters the opportunity to get to know those running for public office face-to-face and hear from them in a Q and A forum with questions randomly selected from local citizens. 
    Most of the official races for the county will be decided at the Primary Election on June 14 with early voting held May 28 to June 10, so if voters want their say, they should vote in the Primary Election, as well as the General Election on Nov. 8.

  • ‘Another challenging year:’ Nevada faces continued wildfire risk amid drought
    Wednesday, May 18, 2022 1:00 AM
    In a third year of drought, Nevada officials are preparing for several hot months that could see high-elevation blazes ignite across the West, straining frontline fire crews and limited resources.
    In a briefing to Gov. Steve Sisolak last week, the state’s Division of Forestry and federal officials laid out plans to confront wildfires, while providing an overview of what to expect heading into a year that has already seen large wildfires, including a devastating fire in northern New Mexico. 
    This week, The Nevada Independent interviewed Ryan Shane, a deputy administrator for the Nevada Division of Forestry, to get more information about the projections. 
  • How to participate in Nevada’s 2022 primary election
    Wednesday, May 18, 2022 1:00 AM
    It can be a dizzying affair, especially if you’re not constantly plugged into the political scene. Then, slowly but surely, campaign ads creep onto television airwaves and flyers clog mailboxes again. 
    We’re at that juncture again as the calendar swiftly moves toward June 14 — Nevada’s primary election. But what exactly is a primary election?
    Think of it in terms of a professional automobile race: Much like a qualifying race determining which drivers move on to the main event, the primary election accomplishes the same purpose. Candidates filed for office in March, and the primary election will whittle down that field before the general election in November.

  • BLM Nevada’s Fire Prevention Team kicks off their campaign to stop human-caused wildfires
    Tuesday, May 17, 2022 1:00 AM
    Despite what people may think, most of the wildfires in Nevada are not caused by unattended campfires or discarded cigarettes, though both can be very dangerous.
