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.”

    Tuesday, August 3, 2021 1:00 AM
    Thacker Pass Concerned Citizens (TPCC) group members recently explored safety improvement options for US Highway 95 and NV-293 Kings River Highway Junction.

  • So far, no masks for Pershing students this fall
    Tuesday, August 3, 2021 1:00 AM
    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.

  • Are your plants turning Yellow?
    Wednesday, July 21, 2021 1:00 AM
    Last week I submitted and article about leaf scorch. I would like to follow that up with this article about iron chlorosis, because both of these conditions appear when the weather is very hot and windy, and both will make the leaves on shrubs and trees turning yellow. 
     Iron chlorosis is the most common micronutrient problem of ornamentals, shrubs, vines, small fruits and trees in western States.  
    New leaf growth on affected plants are yellow, light green, or white with distinct green veins resulting in interveinal chlorosis.  In severe cases, the leaves may be entirely white.
