  • Oats are a late-season forage option
    Wednesday, August 24, 2016 1:00 AM
    If you are looking to extend the grazing season or bolster stored forage inventories, then I would suggest planting oats. Late summer-seeded oats thrive in cool conditions, have high feed value, and can produce more than 2 tons of hay or pasture in the fall. The crop also dies out over winter, which protects soil without causing planting problems in the spring. It has found a niche as a fall forage crop for the north and central latitudes of the U.S. So, now is an excellent time to plant oats or other annual forages.
  • We have the students we want
    Friday, August 19, 2016 1:00 AM
    In the past I have written about having the schools we want, but with so many rules and regulations out of administrator and teacher control, that has become difficult. Between tax cuts and mandates it is hard to stay abreast of the requirements and adjustments made in education.
  • Memories of a memory
    Thursday, August 18, 2016 1:00 AM
    The old mama cat was old, tired, and ready to leave planet Earth. 
  • A pro-crastinator
    Wednesday, August 17, 2016 1:00 AM
    A while ago, okay more than a while, it was more like a lot of years ago, I heard a story being told. Seems there was this doctor who thought he was a bit bigger than life. He had a tendency to occasionally let his head get a tad bit too big. You know the type, couldn’t fit through a door because of the size of that head! I venture to say we probably all know someone like that. If you say you don’t know anyone that fits that description there is a distinct possibility that you are this type of person.
  • Mine safety workers are champions every single day
    Tuesday, August 16, 2016 1:00 AM
    Mine safety in Nevada has improved immensely in recent years. When northern Nevada mines were operating 100 years ago, sticks of dynamite were common and head protection was not. Many of those mines still produce today, but everyone wears a tested hard hat, and hazardous substances are carefully managed. Teams of employees work together to mitigate potential problems. Safety training is a constant feature on a mine site.
  • FCC needs to make broadband affordable for schools, hospitals and business
    Monday, August 15, 2016 1:00 AM
    The Republican and Democratic party platforms may clash on most issues, but they do agree on one thing: Broadband access is critical. According to the Republican platform, America must “pav[e] the way for high-speed, next generation broadband deployment and competition.” The Democratic platform echoes this view, proclaiming: “High-speed internet connectivity is not a luxury; it is a necessity for 21st century economic success, social mobility, education, health care, and public safety.”
  • Double thumbs down, Gap Inc.
    Monday, August 15, 2016 1:00 AM
    Gap’s latest ad campaign is being raked over the coals for reinforcing gender stereotypes. The ads feature “The Little Scholar,” an aspiring scientist boy and “The Social Butterfly,” a girl. Many are outraged that a company like Gap, which prides itself on its social responsibility, is peddling gender stereotypes.

    Monday, August 15, 2016 1:00 AM

  • Respite for Caregivers
    Saturday, August 13, 2016 1:00 AM
    Many people ask me about available respite for caregivers in Winnemucca and although we are limited at this point in time, I believe we are about to grow. Currently there is some funding available through the generous community donations to Winnemucca Alzheimer’s Awareness from the Turkey Trot, Tie-One-On, the Longest Day, and just plain kindness plus the Northern Nevada Alzheimer’s Association has additional respite funding (with some stipulations as to income), but we hope to grow.
  • Medicare cost curve bent during Obama administration
    Saturday, August 13, 2016 1:00 AM
    In June 2009, shortly after President Barack Obama took office, he was presented with a long-term budget outlook that showed skyrocketing costs for Medicare. Since then, health care cost growth has stayed remarkably low, and the CBO’s projections of Medicare spending have fallen dramatically. Medicare’s fiscal future will be greatly improved in the long-term budget outlook that lands on the next president’s desk.
