  • Selecting and caring for your cut Christmas Tree
    Thursday, December 5, 2019 1:00 AM
    It is that time of year when many families bring the beauty and fragrance of a real Christmas tree into their homes as part of their holiday celebration. In so doing, they are following a tradition that dates to before Christianity and one that is not exclusive to any single religion.
    During Winter Solstice, early humans used evergreen boughs or entire trees in magical rites intended to secure protection of their homes and the return of vegetation in the spring. Romans decorated their homes with evergreens to celebrate Saturnalia, a winter festival honoring Saturnus, their god of agriculture. During the Middle Ages, Christians in Germany used an evergreen hung with red apples in their Christmas Eve “Adam and Eve's Day play,” depicting the events in the Garden of Eden.
  • Thanksgiving tradition continues at Imlay Elementary School
    Thursday, December 5, 2019 1:00 AM
    This year marked the 41st anniversary of the Imlay Elementary School’s Thanksgiving Dinner. The event attracts many community members with and without children at the school. What started out as a lesson in good citizenship has now become an event looked forward to by many in the community.
    In 1978, several children at the school had played tricks on some of the senior’s by soaping their windows on Halloween. Understandably, this made many unhappy with the pranksters. When word got back to the two teachers, Cindy Meyers-Plummer and Sheila Kiley, they took the students around town to clean up the windows and decided to host a Thanksgiving luncheon for the Imlay seniors.
  • Policy to include concealed weapons permit holders in background checks disputed by pro-gun rights group
    Wednesday, December 4, 2019 1:00 AM
    More than 130,000 Nevadans with concealed weapon carry permits will not be exempted from the state’s new background check law when it goes into effect next year, despite an existing carve-out for gun purchases made from licensed firearm sellers.
    The state’s Department of Public Safety in late October sent a letter to inform all federally licensed firearm sellers in the state that individuals with a CCW license will not be allowed to avoid undergoing a background check for a private sale or transfer of a firearm — even though CCW permit holders typically don’t have to undergo a background check when buying a gun from a retail store.
  • Man dies in Thanksgiving house fire

  • Projects propose new reservoirs, cycling water from Nevada’s desert lakes, with hopes of selling power to LA
    Tuesday, December 3, 2019 1:00 AM
    A company is seeking federal permits to construct new reservoirs in the mountains above two Nevada desert lakes in an attempt to harness hydropower and provide stability to an increasingly renewable electricity grid. But the projects’ water consumption and new reservoirs have raised concerns in the basins, where historic water diversions have already diminished the two lakes.
    Mineral County, with a case to restore Walker Lake pending before the Supreme Court, plans to intervene in a federal regulatory process because it is worried the proposed project could affect the amount of water in the lake. The Walker River Paiute Tribe shares the county’s concerns. A new reservoir in a canyon of the nearby Wassuk Range could conflict with sacred cultural sites.
    “Anything that takes water out of that lake causes us concern,” said Sean Rowe, the district attorney for Mineral County, which has long seen the lake as an important economic resource.

    MedX AirOne, the northern Nevada air ambulance company has worked with Humboldt General Hospital to resolve contract concerns between the two organizations, meaning that the 14 full-time employees who work on the air ambulance will not have to choose between working for the hospital and working on the flight team for the hospital.
    MedX AirOne President Joel Hochhalter said that since the Nov. 19 board meeting, Cole and the board have been integral in coming to a solution to concerns without making any changes to the way employees function between the two organizations. 
    “Karen has done a really good job of getting everybody together and kind of presenting different ways to get things done so that folks aren’t affected at all with any kind of proposed change,” said Hochhalter. “We’ve worked through all of those and we’re not going to make any changes to the flight stuff or anything like that.”
