  • Wanted: additional land  for Airport Industrial Park
    The city of Winnemucca would really like to add some land, or at least improve the access to its Airport Industrial Park. Humboldt Development Authority members have been discussing options and went to the Humboldt County Commissioners last month to ask if they could support the idea of purchasing additional right of way access or even additional land, should the opportunity become available.

  • My earliest engagement in agriculture was at age one-and-a-half, playing in a hayfield as it was being converted into a commercial vineyard. My parents aspired to diversify our farm in anticipation of a third generation — a task which was becoming ever more challenging in the face of urban sprawl and in view of neighborhoods that had once been orchards. Choosing a crop became as much a matter of the value it would bring to our community, as it was a matter of learning about production technology and best management practices. Agriculture, present and future, is dependent upon perpetual advancements, succeeding generations, and understanding and support of others.

     
  • My sisters and I were saddened when my parents sold the old house. It was a two-story, four-bedroom design that was typical of 1960s suburbia — a house designed to raise children. The bottom half of the exterior was brick; the top half, white aluminum siding. Inside, the rooms were efficient and comfortable. Eventually, my father remodeled the basement into a family room.


     
  • Last year I wanted to smack myself for missing the chance to write about the Kacey Musgraves country song “Follow Your Arrow.” Luckily, Musgraves has now released the similarly themed “(Mind Your Own) Biscuits.”
