  • How to control Dodder
    I recently had a conversation with a local farmer about his alfalfa fields and the presents of Dodder. Dodder, is a parasitic annual plant that infests many crops, ornamentals, native plants, and weeds. More than 150 species occur worldwide, although dodder is most prevalent in the Americas. 
    Dodder is a parasitic weed that causes serious problems in forage and seed alfalfa fields. Parasitized alfalfa plants grow less vigorously, often becoming so weakened that they die. Because dodder is succulent, heavily infested alfalfa may require at least an extra day to cure. A severe dodder infestation can thus reduce stand, cause improper curing of hay, and lower forage and seed yields. As a result, hay prices may be discounted, often by more than $10 a ton
    Dodder has slender, twining or threadlike stems that vary from pale green to yellow or bright orange; the bright stems can be readily seen against the foliage of the host plants.

  • What does the mega merger of Newmont, Barrick mean for Nevada mining?

Barrick owns and operates 61.5 percent of the newly formed Nevada Gold Mines, while Newmont owns 38.5 percent of the company.

  • School board recognizes food service director
    Laura Jensen, food service director for the Humboldt County School District was honored at the school board’s Aug. 27 meeting. 
    Jensen has done an outstanding job as the school seeks to replace the outgoing Director of Food Service Michael River, officials said. River resigned to pursue other opportunities. 
    “We lost Michael River who resigned and moved on to a different job opportunity and Chartwells is doing a great job to try to fill that vacancy,” Superintendent Dave Jensen told the board members. “They have selected somebody to take Michael's spot. But during the summer months, Laura has had to take a tremendous amount of responsibility on her shoulders to prepare for the upcoming year.”

  • The American Conservative Union Foundation has released a scorecard of the Legislature’s 2019 session, crowning rural Republican Sen. Ira Hansen and rural Republican Assemblyman John Ellison as the most likely to vote with the group’s ideology.
    The scorecard released was this week ahead of the organization’s Conservative Political Action Conference spinoff, CPAC West, which is scheduled for Friday in Reno. 
    Its overall score for the Assembly — 29 percent — reflects the fact that Democrats have a two-thirds majority in the chamber and advanced legislation that ACU strongly opposes.

  • In the last few weeks, students have come home with a backpack full of the school’s rules, regulations and policies. One of those policies has struck a nerve with the cupcake crowd. The district sent home the meal service information sheet which details instructions for parents regarding meal applications, menus, payments allergies and the district’s wellness policy.
    Under the policy, parents are instructed to “talk to your child’s teacher about treats for birthdays and holidays. Attached is the list of days that are exempt from the wellness policy.”  The policy lists eight holidays that can potentially wreck a child’s diet. But the biggest concern amongst parents is that birthday celebrations are limited to the first and third Friday of the month. Thus, the district encourages “stickers, books, and non-edible items as a way to celebrate.”

  • Kuskie wins girls varsity race at North Tahoe Kiwanis Invitational
    After taking a couple weeks off, it is full steam ahead for the Lowry High School cross country team for the rest of the fall.
    The Buckaroos headed to the Sierra Nevada mountains last Friday for the North Tahoe Kiwanis Mountain Motivational Invitational in Tahoe City, Calif.
    “We had a great day of racing,” said LHS coach Kathy Norcutt. “Both my freshmen girls medaled.”
    Sophomore Jovi Kuskie picked up from where she left off in the opening race of the season in Gardnerville. She won the 3.3-mile varsity girls race in a time of 25 minutes, 6:69 seconds. She dueled Mammoth’s Jordyn Harper for much of the race, pulling away late to win by nearly three seconds. 
    “Jovi won in a heated battle,” Norcutt said. “The girl she beat from Mammoth is a fierce competitor. The race came down to the final 400 meters with Jovi out kicking her at the end. It was very exciting.”
    Mammoth’s Rhona McChensey was third at 26:23.55, Jennifer Ruiz from Modoc was fourth at 26:37.72 and Calaveras’ Katrina Borchin (26:42.34) rounded out the top five.
