Incumbent Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak and his Republican challenger, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo, laid out competing visions for Nevada on the debate stage Sunday in the first — and likely only — general election debate in the race for governor. 
The pair sparred on a range of issues, debating the governor’s performance on COVID response, the economy and education, while Sisolak pressed Lombardo over his record as sheriff, a recent increase in crime and his position on abortion. 
The nearly 90-minute, town hall-style debate — moderated by The Nevada Independent CEO Jon Ralston on Sunday morning — comes less than three weeks before the start of early voting.

    Tuesday, October 4, 2022 1:00 AM
    Little minds often ask the biggest questions. Preschool and Pre-K are where children learn the very foundation of what it means to be a student. Christ Lutheran Church & Preschool recently celebrated 20 years of not only preparing children to be students, but also teaching them about Jesus. 
    “The very heart of being a student is to sit, listen, and ask questions, just like we teach in Chapel” said Pastor Mark Kliewer.

position on political posturing

  • 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.”

  • City and county commence black fly and mosquito mitigation efforts
    Tuesday, September 27, 2022 1:00 AM
    The flies and mosquitoes begin their relentless campaign to bother and pilfer blood in the beginning of April, but preparation and mitigation efforts must be framed before that. Catching the pesky insects while they are in the larva phase is critical in order to really combat them. 
    The Humboldt County Board of Commissioners and City of Winnemucca City Council met on Sept. 19 for a joint meeting to discuss black fly and mosquito mitigation. The County and City cost share agreement allows the two entities to partner in efforts to tackle both County and City concerns, like annoying insects.
