  • Lovelock artist creates intricate carvings to benefit historic Masonic Humboldt Lodge 27
    Thursday, June 25, 2015 1:00 AM
    Weighing up to 60 pounds, a bull moose’s antlers signal his social position and general condition to other bulls and to cows shopping for a mate. It must be an enormous relief every winter when the animals shed their antlers so they can grow new ones for the spring. Shed antlers are difficult to find because small woodland animals like squirrels, mice and porcupines gobble them up for the nutrients they contain.

  • Senior van offers alternative transportation to Lovelock residents
    Wednesday, June 24, 2015 10:00 PM
    Scrapes on the car and mailbox, warnings from law enforcement and getting honked at by other drivers are listed by the AARP as signs that a driver may have outlived his or her ability to drive safely. Although statistics show that most older people are safe drivers, this will happen to all who live long enough. But the American landscape is designed for the motorist.
