    As many producers wrap up calving season, it’s time to switch gears and start thinking about next year’s calf crop. 
    “Do things twice as well as you need to because the little mistakes at every point can really add up.” 
    That’s the advice George Perry, a beef reproduction specialist at South Dakota State University (SDSU), often gives to cow-calf producers as they prepare their herds - and their management tactics — for breeding season. Here are some things to put on your pre-breeding checklist:

    Dementia, cognitive decline and forgetfulness, is an umbrella term.
    Underneath that umbrella is Alzheimer’s disease (50-75%), vascular dementia (20-30%), Lewy body (10-25%), and frontotemporal (10-25%) plus many other less prevalent forms. 
    You will notice that the percentages vary greatly. That is because physicians just aren’t sure plus many individuals are not diagnosed — properly or at all.

    On a windy March morning, Father Mark Hanifan held a closed Mass at Lovelock’s Saint John the Baptist Church. Only Father Hanifan and his ministers were present. Someone rang the church bell at the moment of consecration. Then, in masks and gloves, the clergy offered curbside Holy Communion. 
    Drivers lowered their car windows to accept baggies from gloved hands. The packages contained the consecrated host. 
    Meanwhile, across town, Colton, 9, and Whitlee Diaz, 10, worked on their distance learning packets. For exercise, they jumped rope or played on the trampoline.

    The county commission will reconsider the county’s state of emergency that enables local businesses to apply for federal or state financial help. The declaration suspends advisory board meetings and gives paid administrative leave to county employees afflicted with COVID-19.
    “If and when there is federal funding or state funding for businesses then they can apply for it if we declare an emergency,” Commissioner Larry Rackley explained at an earlier emergency meeting. “Other counties have made it two weeks with automatic renewal until further notice.”
    District Attorney Bryce Shields said the declaration “clears the path for access to those funds” and suggested the declaration be reconsidered and possibly prolonged at today’s meeting.

    Gov. Steve Sisolak’s office says that franchised car dealerships are allowed to continue operating in a limited manner through the state’s 30-day nonessential business shutdown, but must comply with social distancing protocols and other requirements to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.
    A spokeswoman for Nevada Health Response — the state’s centralized agency for tracking and responding to COVID-19 — confirmed to The Nevada Independent on Thursday that car dealerships can continue operating during the business shutdown, even though they are not explicitly mentioned in emergency regulations outlining the types of businesses allowed to continue operations.
