  • Officials look to churches, grocery stores, cultural events to bring census message to hard-to-count communities
    Thursday, February 20, 2020 1:00 AM
    Imagine going to the supermarket and finding a sticker advertising the census on the apples in the produce aisle. Or stopping by a gas station and hearing a catchy jingle about how everyone counts for the census. 
    These are two of the approaches census outreach organizers in Nevada are considering as they work toward ensuring historically underrepresented and undercounted communities participate in the 2020 Census. Although April 1 is census day, notices and forms about the census will start arriving in the mail in March, with follow-ups running from April through July.
  • County organizations secure OHV grant funds
    Thursday, February 20, 2020 1:00 AM
    For the third year in a row, the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) and Nevada Outdoor School (NOS) in Winnemucca have received monies from the off-highway vehicle (OHV)  grant funding program. A sand dunes recreational development program that began two years ago awaits BLM approval to move forward, at risk of losing the remaining grant funding and ability to complete the project. 
    Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Off Highway Vehicle Program Manager Nikhill Narkhede said he is concerned with one project in Winnemucca that was awarded almost $150,000 in the first round of grant funding and still has not been able to complete the project, due to governmental red tape.

  • New Pershing County 4-H Club class
    Thursday, February 20, 2020 1:00 AM
    While some Pershing County 4-H Club activities have come to a halt due to a shortage of volunteers, a new Arts & Crafts class was established last week thanks to a new volunteer. The first class happened on Friday, just in time for participants to design Valentine’s Day cards.
    Leonna Bianchi was asked to lead the group according to UNCE Clerk Dixie McKay who helped round up supplies and get the word out. McKay said the class is open to 4-H Club members of all ages and it’s not just for Cloverbuds, the youngest club members aged 5 to 8 years old. 
  • Check cattle for lice in late winter/early spring
    Wednesday, February 19, 2020 1:00 AM
    Now is a good time to check cattle for lice infestations. Although lice can be present throughout the entire year, high numbers of lice are most likely during winter months when cattle have longer, thicker hair coats, which make self-grooming less effective in reducing lice numbers. Hot summer temperatures, direct exposure to sun and rain showers, all play a role in reducing lice numbers and offer further explanation of why heavy lice infestations are most often seen during winter months.
  • In 2011, the Legislature created a mining oversight board — then it stopped meeting
    Wednesday, February 19, 2020 1:00 AM
    When then-Gov. Brian Sandoval appointed Melissa Clary to the Mining Oversight and Accountability Commission in January 2018, her expectation was that the board would soon meet to help regulate an industry so intertwined with Nevada’s politics that it is recognized on the state seal. 
    But a year after her appointment, there was a problem: It never met.
