  • Listen to your Mother, Nature that is
    Wednesday, May 12, 2021 1:00 AM
    In May, the tradition is to celebrate Mothers.  One thing all mothers have in common is that they want to be listened to and heard. 
    There is a lot of wisdom in what most moms have to say, and Mother Nature is no different. 
    Depending on which cultural context you are interested in, there is an origin story that relates to the creation and expansion of life.  Nature, derived from the Latin word natura, meaning birth or character was first used to describe the entirety of the phenomena of the world, and was further personified as Mother Nature.

  • Extension offers trainings to help address state’s high suicide rates among youth
    Wednesday, May 5, 2021 1:00 AM
    According to the Nevada Coalition for Suicide Prevention, suicide is the second leading cause of death for ages 10 to 34 in the state. To help address this, University of Nevada, Reno Extension’s 4-H Youth Development Program recently conducted a training for 15 faculty and staff members to teach them steps they can take to help prevent suicides, especially among Nevada’s youth.
    The training is called “QPR” training, which stands for question, persuade and refer. Just as people trained in CPR help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR also help save lives by learning how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis, and how to question, persuade and refer someone to help. 
  • Welcome back, Frontier Days, you’ve been missed
    Wednesday, May 5, 2021 1:00 AM
    Lovelock has cause to celebrate. The Pennington Foundation saved the community pool. Fire debris cleanup could start in late June. People are playing sports again. And, Frontier Days returns to Pershing County’s courthouse park Aug. 6, 7 and 8.
    “It’s time to get out and enjoy ourselves,” said Linda Whyte, the parade organizer. “We’ve been locked up for a year.” 
    Due to the pandemic, Frontier Days skipped a beat last summer, the only hiccup in its 53-year history. The first festival, in the summer of 1968, celebrated Lovelock’s centenary. From there, it grew into an annual event with games, vendors and family entertainment, all pulled together by a handful of volunteers like Whyte.
