  • The ringed planet Saturn reaches opposition this weekend. This is a big milestone for our year of observing the ringed planet! Earth passes in between Saturn and the sun on May 23, making it easy to find at sunset in the eastern sky. It is visible all night, closest and brightest for 2015.

  • INSIDE NASCAR: All-Star Standout
    It wasn’t an event that will stir lasting memories, and it wasn’t a race that will quiet those clamoring for a significant re-think of nearly every part of NASCAR’s version of an all-star game. But at least for Denny Hamlin winning Saturday night’s Sprint All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway was a night of firsts he won’t soon forget.
  • INSIDE NASCAR: The Numbers Game
    That’s the gap, in seconds, that Kasey Kahne needed to edge out Erik Jones Friday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway after a stirring last-lap, side-by-side battle. Kahne and Jones bumped several times as they closed on the finish and officially recorded the second-closest finish in Camping World Truck Series history. The closest came at Talladega Superspeedway in 2010 when Kyle Busch won by .002 seconds — a number that ties the Sprint Cup Series’ closest finish ever (2002, Darlington Raceway).
  • INSIDE NASCAR: News and Notes
    The No. 4 NASCAR Xfinity Series car driven by Ross Chastain at Iowa has been penalized following a scary incident during practice last week.
  • Taking a swing at summer softball
    Adult co-ed players will be stepping up to the plate this Tuesday, May 26, for the kick off of the Winnemucca city league softball season.

  • There is one stoplight in the center of this small town. The town itself is surrounded by a seemingly endless desert. The town’s population is sparse. We have a few gas stations and a handful of places to grab a bite. There are also several motels if you want to rest for the night and wake up to a bright desert morning. We have no shortage of churches here. Religion and faith seem to be basic needs for our townspeople like food and clothing. We also have a few places to gamble here, being this is after all Nevada. And bars; of course we have bars here but they are still outnumbered by churches.
     
  • As kids, my brother and I and our friends, Jessie and Danny Poppowich, ran one of the most successful summertime lemonade stands on the Jersey shore.  With luck on our side, a great location, some gentle persuasion and a great scam, we raked in the dough like the Kardashians. We took our enterprise seriously and it was not for sissies
