    U.S. Rep. Mark Amodei of Nevada had three surgeries and an outpatient procedure over the past 10 months for cancerous tumors on his kidneys and a cancerous spot in his esophagus, the Republican congressman disclosed Friday.
    Amodei told The Associated Press that he did not reveal the cancer when he first learned of it last September or his surgery before the November election because he didn’t want it to be used against him in his reelection campaign.

    Starting Aug. 15, Nevada state employees who aren’t fully vaccinated for COVID-19 must take weekly virus tests.
    Gov. Steve Sisolak announced the new testing policy in a statement on Friday after it was previously reported to be in the works.
    As with other governors who have implemented similar vaccination or testing policies for their states, Sisolak’s statement made it clear his intent to nudge workers to get vaccinated.

    A series of earthquakes struck the Topaz Lake area causing minor damage. Do you know what to do before, during and after an earthquake?

    U.S. Rep. Mark Amodei said Tuesday that he hasn't decided whether to run for reelection or mount a bid for Nevada governor, but appears unimpressed by the Republican primary field vying to challenge first-term Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak.
    “Certainly no one has sucked the air out of the room, in a Republican primary sense, which Steve Sisolak must be happy about,'' he said.
    Amodei, a Carson City Republican, said he didn't feel rushed to make a decision with the primary election 11 months away. If he enters the race, Amodei will join Sheriff Joe Lombardo, former North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee and Reno attorney Joey Gilbert in the Republican primary field. Former U.S. Sen. Dean Heller has told Republican groups that he's also mulling a run.

    For Washoe County School District and others, the federal support means full bellies and full coffers.
    “We went from looking like we were going to go broke to actually having a pretty healthy surplus of funding,” said Pete Etchart, the district’s chief operating officer.
