    Over 300 people lined up for hot dogs, burgers or tri-tip. 
    On Aug. 17, 2018, Pershing County School District opened its new athletic complex. At dusk, officials flipped the switch for the first time and lit up the field.
    “The district and community can be proud,” said Mike Mancebo, Pershing County school board member and Chief of the Lovelock Police Department. “This was accomplished with a lot of forethought and hard work from Tom Donaldson, Russell Fecht and Shaw Engineering.”
    Jim List and his son, Mason, then 15, took aerial photos with a DJI drone.

    The Los Angeles Lakers are going to the conference finals for the first time in a decade, ending the longest drought in franchise history.
    LeBron James is going there for the first time since 2018. For him, that also qualifies as ending a drought.
    James scored 29 points and the Lakers wrapped up their first trip to the Western Conference finals since 2010 by topping the Houston Rockets 119-96 on Saturday night in Game 5 at Walt Disney World.

    Whether it was at Winged Foot where Phil Mickelson lost his best chance to win the U.S. Open is up for debate.
    It certainly was the most memorable, if not spectacular.
    A tee shot off the hospitality tent that caromed into yellow grass that had been trampled by a week’s worth of spectators. A 3-iron that struck a tree. A shot that started between hospitality chalets and trees and hooked only far enough to catch a buried lie in the bunker left of the green. An explosion shot that raced off the green into 6 inches of rough.

    Steve Nash was one of the NBA’s most entertaining point guards, the engineer of a high-scoring team that helped usher in a new era of basketball.
    Now the Brooklyn Nets want to see what he can do as a coach.

    It’s tempting to pick against the New England Patriots this year. It really is.
    The up-and-coming Buffalo Bills have emerged as a popular pick to dethrone Bill Belichick’s bunch atop the AFC East. And, on paper, it certainly seems reasonable.
  • Dateline: January 2020, Pershing County High School
    Tuesday, September 8, 2020 1:00 AM
    It was the dead of the winter of 2020.
    Nobody had heard of the coronavirus yet, but everyone at PCHS knew about Incline JV’s 3-point percentage rate. 
    The Pershing County JV played in a 3-2 zone, hoping to prevent some of Incline’s perimeter shots.
    Even with the home court advantage, it was rough going for the Mustangs. They kept the game close in the first period, but the Highlanders pulled out their secret sauce.

    Signing Tom Brady was just a start for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who continue to assemble a star-studded cast around the six-time Super Bowl champion.
    Leonard Fournette is the latest high-profile addition to an already potent offense bolstered by Brady luring his favorite target, Rob Gronkowski, out of retirement. Former Eagles, Bills and Chiefs running back LeSean McCoy decided he’d like to help the three-time NFL MVP be successful with his new team, too.

    The heat is on — and the games haven’t even kicked off yet.
    That’s life in the NFL for some coaches who enter the regular season knowing they need to guide their squads through what will be a most unusual regular season, and at least keep them in playoff contention into December.
    Some might even need to reach the postseason to avoid the unemployment line.
    While there’s still so much uncertainty outside the football fields because of the coronavirus pandemic, these coaches can count on getting plenty of attention for their work on NFL sidelines this season:
