    Friday, December 6, 2019 1:00 AM
    “I am all ready for anything that somebody asks me to do, so I was ready to go for the country and when I did get picked to go, I was happy … I was ready to go do the defense for the U.S. — that was the main thing I did.”
    Fallon veteran Kip Sam, now 74 years old, was one of thousands of young men who were drafted in the mid-1960s to serve in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War.

    A national trade group for payday lenders is asking state officials to ignore state laws governing high-interest loans while it works to implement regulations for a pilot program allowing a limited number of companies to offer unique financial products outside of existing regulations.
    Comments and suggestions submitted by the Financial Service Centers of America — a trade group for high-interest, short term lenders — caused concern by attorneys with the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, who warned state officials during a workshop held by the state’s Department of Business and Industry to draft regulations to implement a new law (SB161) that payday lenders should not be allowed to participate once it goes into effect next year.

    The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and its partners awarded $616,505 of grant funding in Nevada to benefit elk habitat stewardship work and hunting heritage projects. RMEF directly granted $143,455 and leveraged an additional $473,050 in partner funding.
    "One of the biggest negative impacts on elk country in eastern Nevada is the explosion of pinyon and juniper trees that crowd out native, nutritional forage for elk and other wildlife. This grant funding directly addresses that issue," said Blake Henning, RMEF chief conservation officer. 
    Eleven projects benefit more than 5,800 acres of wildlife habitat in Douglas, Esmeralda, Humboldt, Lander, Lincoln, Nye, Pershing and White Pine Counties. There are also two projects of statewide benefit.

    Tis the season when we're all bombarded with happy holiday images. 
    Advertisers continually show us rejoicing families with their new cars, kids opening piles of presents around the Christmas tree and countless cheery family gatherings -- upbeat images, laughing children and plenty of holiday joy.
    Except this simply isn't true for everyone. All those happy holiday images and promotion of all the good times and pleasures of the season can build up unrealistic expectations and not just for those children asking Santa for a pony.
    Adults can just as easily get overwhelmed by the holiday hype and find themselves disappointed and depressed when they aren't able to provide or participate in the holiday happiness that it seems everyone else is enjoying.
  • Selecting and caring for your cut Christmas Tree
    Thursday, December 5, 2019 1:00 AM
    It is that time of year when many families bring the beauty and fragrance of a real Christmas tree into their homes as part of their holiday celebration. In so doing, they are following a tradition that dates to before Christianity and one that is not exclusive to any single religion.
    During Winter Solstice, early humans used evergreen boughs or entire trees in magical rites intended to secure protection of their homes and the return of vegetation in the spring. Romans decorated their homes with evergreens to celebrate Saturnalia, a winter festival honoring Saturnus, their god of agriculture. During the Middle Ages, Christians in Germany used an evergreen hung with red apples in their Christmas Eve “Adam and Eve's Day play,” depicting the events in the Garden of Eden.

  • The Lovelock train depot survives
    Thursday, December 5, 2019 1:00 AM
    Wendy Nelsen keeps an office in the Lovelock Train Depot. She invites visitors to sink into her couch, nibble on Hershey’s Kisses and flip through an album full of old photos. If they’re from Lovelock, they’ll recognize an ancestor or two.
    Every Lovelock schoolchild knows George Lovelock gave 85 acres of land to the transcontinental railroad. To show their appreciation, officials named the depot after the Welsh immigrant and homesteader.
  • Thanksgiving tradition continues at Imlay Elementary School
    Thursday, December 5, 2019 1:00 AM
    This year marked the 41st anniversary of the Imlay Elementary School’s Thanksgiving Dinner. The event attracts many community members with and without children at the school. What started out as a lesson in good citizenship has now become an event looked forward to by many in the community.
    In 1978, several children at the school had played tricks on some of the senior’s by soaping their windows on Halloween. Understandably, this made many unhappy with the pranksters. When word got back to the two teachers, Cindy Meyers-Plummer and Sheila Kiley, they took the students around town to clean up the windows and decided to host a Thanksgiving luncheon for the Imlay seniors.
