    Members of the state’s new Patient Protection Commission had a lot to say about the status of health care in Nevada, but the general consensus was clear — costs are too high and there are too few providers. 
    Price, licensing, and access for special populations were among the topics of discussion at the first meeting of the new commission on Monday. Gov. Steve Sisolak first promised to form the commission while on the campaign trail in 2018 and appeared at the meeting in person in Las Vegas to talk with the group and share his own goals.
  • Mercury storage: Nevada gold operators sue Department of Energy over decision to ship mercury to private Texas facility
    Thursday, February 13, 2020 1:00 AM
    In 2008, Congress passed legislation to ban the export of mercury. The legislation, sponsored by then-Sen. Barack Obama, aimed to reduce global emissions of a toxin that can accumulate in food supplies after it’s released in air or water. Congress passed the bill with near-unanimity.
    But the export ban left a legacy issue — and a big one for Nevada’s gold mines.
  • Pershing County to join lawsuit against red flag law
    Thursday, February 13, 2020 1:00 AM
    Pershing County will join a lawsuit against a new state “red flag” law that allows courts to order confiscation of firearms from those considered a threat to themselves or others. Sheriff Jerry Allen asked the county to take a stand on what he calls a violation of second amendment rights.
    The litigation was filed late last year by NevadansCAN (Citizen Action Network) to block AB 291 scheduled to become law on January 1, 2020. Last week, Pershing County District Attorney Bryce Shields told county leaders they could participate in the lawsuit as intervenors in the case.

    Republican state Sen. Ben Kieckhefer has filed a proposed initiative petition that, if successful, would open up primary elections in Nevada to all voters regardless of political party.
    The proposed initiative, which was filed with the secretary of state’s office on Friday, would create a “top two” or “jungle” primary system where voters regardless of party affiliation would be allowed to cast votes for any candidate during a primary election, with the top two vote-getters continuing to the general election regardless of party.

    Wednesday, February 12, 2020 1:00 AM
    A tabletop replica of the Pershing County Courthouse has attracted donations for the Pershing County Senior Center. Designed by Lovelock woodworker Tom Hildenbrand, the little structure is for the birds and some lucky bird lover will take it home after the birdhouse raffle on May 1.
    A retired mechanic, Hildenbrand has cheerfully spent long hours in his wood shop building birdhouses for the annual senior center birdhouse fundraiser. This year, he also delivered a hand-carved raffle drum that holds hundreds of raffle tickets for the courthouse replica.

    “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.” Dr. Seuss could have been describing the Mustang Youth Team.
    Last October, the Frontier Community Coalition (FCC) organized the drug abuse prevention group at PCMS. About a dozen seventh and eighth graders keep running the ball to the end zone. 
    They started with PSAs on vaping. Next, they hosted Red Ribbon Spirit Week and topped off a schoolwide assembly with a few rounds of drug abuse prevention jeopardy.
