    With wildfires burning across the state and much of the West, many residents are shaking their heads, wondering how we got to the point where smoke-filled skies are just something we have to accept as part of living in Nevada.

  • Early weaning calves during drought
    Tuesday, August 3, 2021 1:00 AM
    During normal precipitation years, calves in Northern Nevada are weaned at six to seven months of age.

    The world is not out of the pandemic woods yet. Viruses evolve and change as they grow and replicate. Most changes are nothing to worry about. However, some variants become more transmissible. The highly contagious Delta variant of Covid-19 is now the dominant strain worldwide.
    Delta has a shorter incubation period than the original virus, four days rather than six. People are contagious sooner. It’s also stickier. People spread the original virus to an average of two or three others. Today, people infected with Delta infect six others, on average, making it about as contagious as chickenpox.
  • Dream town in the works at Marzen House Museum

    Marzen House Museum Advisory Board Chairman Barbara Rackley had a night vision that is now becoming a reality. She dreamed of a cluster of old buildings reminiscent of what Lovelock was like years ago when it was an industrial, commercial, cultural and entertainment hot spot.
    “In the dream, I saw a little village, the way Lovelock might have been,” Rackley said. “At least we can display some things that used to be here and we hope everybody really jumps on the bandwagon. It could be a real attraction for Lovelock and we could make it a nice destination.”

    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.

    Money is available for tenants who could face eviction as early as this weekend as pandemic protections expire, and Nevada’s governor and advocates called Thursday for affected renters to quickly contact programs set up to help.
    ``We will see landlords evicting tenants for non-payment of rent,’’ and courts may be flooded, said Bailey Bortolin, director of the Nevada Coalition of Legal Service Providers.
