  • 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.
  • Young artists recognized for entries to 2015 Nevada Junior Duck Stamp art competition
    LAS VEGAS — Three dozen young artists from throughout the state were presented with awards for their participation in the 2015 Federal Junior Duck Stamp Conservation and Design Program art contest.

He and his teacher each received $100 for their efforts from the Nevada Waterfowl Association.

  • Uncle Sam may have picked the wrong cash cow
    MIDDLETOWN, Md. (AP) — Randy Sowers always expected the government to show up one day and ask where all the cash he was depositing at his bank came from. He thought he had the right answer: from his business selling eggs and milk at farmers markets.

  • While in the United States, Cinco de Mayo is sometimes mistaken to be Mexico's Independence Day—the most important national holiday in Mexico—which is celebrated on September 16, Cinco de Mayo actually celebrates the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. 
  • 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.

  • 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.

    It's the time of year when kids (and teachers) are counting down how many days of school are left until Summer vacation.

With the end of school about five weeks away it's not too early to begin making some plans.

  • I mentioned to a gal that her new hair style was very flattering to her face. She seemed to really appreciate that I noticed. Then she says to me that she liked the highlights I had put in my hair too. Well I said thanks but those aren’t highlights, those are just gray hair and I just ha ha ha-ed it off. Then in a matter of just two days I had occasion to have my picture taken and those same “highlights” lit up the space on my head between my bangs line and the rest of my head making it look like glob of flour had exploded there.
     
  • Two years ago, our daughter got her first computer. With software, it cost about $500. Daddy noted that her laptop, which is nothing special by today’s standards, had more computing power than all the computers in the world combined when he was her age 52 years earlier. A portable device used by an 11-year-old girl for school lessons, playing games and surfing the web had more capability than all the massive computing hardware once owned by the world’s governments, universities and large corporations. 
  • Legal rights for animals? Not so fast. A few weeks ago, says the New York Post, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Barbara Jaffe “inadvertently bestowed human status on two chimpanzees being used for biomedical research at Stony Brook University on Long Island.”
