The suggestion of a refrigeration technician to replace multiple freestanding freezers with a larger walk-in freezer back in 2018 was taken by the leadership of the Winnemucca Ministerial Association’s Food Bank. Utilizing grants from the Food Bank of Northern Nevada, Newmont Mining, Barrick Mining, the D3 Church, Walmart, and other community donations, a new 1,140 cubic foot walk-in freezer was installed at the Food Bank’s Bridge Street location in the fall of 2018.

  • The fate of a bill this legislative session may determine the price of diesel at the pump in rural counties all over the state. If SB 48 passes, Humboldt County may assess a tax of up to five cents per gallon for over-the-road diesel. The tax wouldn’t affect agricultural or “red” diesel. 
    According to 2017 numbers provided by Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT), the five-cent diesel tax would have brought in almost $1 million for county road maintenance. Humboldt County road department budget just happens to fall about $1 million short each year for road maintenance costs.

The Lowry High School track and field team traveled to Spring Creek last Saturday for its first league meet with a large squad and posted some good numbers. 
Eleven teams competed from the 1A, 2A and 3A. Lowry was matched up against Elko and Spring Creek in the 3A Division.
“It was a great first meet," said LHS coach Grant Beatty. "Sometimes the weather there is an issue. It was a little chilly, but there was not a whole lot of wind. They represented themselves well; there were no issues or injuries. Everybody came back that we brought, so it was a good start to the season.”
