  • May is Nevada Wildfire Awareness Month
    Nevada’s residents who live in fire-prone areas can’t just sit back and expect to have their homes and property protected from wildfire. That’s the message land management and fire fighting agencies have been putting forward for the last couple of years. Rather than sit back, residents need to take a proactive part in specific activities to prepare to survive wildfire with their property intact.

Three Things You Need to Know Today

  • The Eta Aquarids Meteor Shower is peaking the night of May 5 for the northern hemisphere. Northern Nevada will have fair viewing of the sky show, which is caused by Haley's Comet passing through our solar system. The high, bright moon will hamper some viewing,  but those in particularly dark areas may enjoy a meteor every few minutes.  
  • Ernie Couch & Revival has always been gospel music at its best! They keep the Austin Baptist Church on their tour route each year and enjoy returning to the area. They will have two shows, the first is May 4 at Yomba Baptist Church at 6 p.m.; the second is May 5 at Austin Baptist Church at 6 p.m. Following this event we will have a meal, all are welcomed. You do not have to be a member of the Austin Baptist Church to attend this free event.

  • INSIDE NASCAR: The Numbers Game
    In the last two NASCAR Xfinity Series races, the theme has been domination by Sprint Cup drivers. Of the 550 total laps (300 at Bristol Motor Speedway and 250 at Richmond International Raceway), just two total laps (0.4 percent) were led by drivers who didn’t win. Joey Logano led every lap two weeks ago at Bristol and Denny Hamlin led 248 of the 250 Friday at Richmond. 
  • INSIDE NASCAR: News and Notes
    RAGAN MOVES TO MWR Michael Waltrip Racing announced Tuesday morning that David Ragan, currently piloting Joe Gibbs Racing’s No. 18 in place of the injured Kyle Busch and on loan from Front Row Racing, would take over the MWR No. 55 after this weekend’s race at Talladega Superspeedway. Michael Waltrip is driving the No. 55 at Talladega, and the car has been driven by Brett Moffitt since Brian Vickers was diagnosed with blood clots — for a third time — during the Auto Club Speedway weekend. Ragan will drive the No. 55 for the rest of the season, regardless of Vickers’ ability to return. Erik Jones is the likely candidate to fill the No. 18 until Busch returns.

  • Lovelock youngsters have a wide choice of activities this summer
    It's the time of year when kids (and teachers) are counting down how many days of school are left until Summer vacation. Parents may be wondering how their children will spend their time once the final school bell chimes and they slam down their backpacks and rush into the heady days of June, July and August. With the end of school about five weeks away it's not too early to begin making some plans.
