  • Unexpected Connections
    Wednesday, October 13, 2021 1:00 AM
    Have you ever driven down a road you have driven down a million times before and then one day you recognize something new? 
    Then you find yourself asking, “has that always been there?”  You ask your car mate, and they reply, “yup, you’ve never noticed that before?”  
    You scratch your head and wonder how have you missed it all this time?  The next time you are on the road, there it is, it has entered your awareness and once you see it you cannot unsee it, your awareness has been forever changed.

  • Independent Poll: Non-major party voters place Sisolak behind Lombardo, neck-and-neck with Heller
    Wednesday, October 13, 2021 1:00 AM
    As the number of people registered with non-major parties outpaces those registering as either a Democrat or Republican, a new poll released Sunday by The Nevada Independent indicates the leanings of independent voters who will play a major role in determining the outcomes of tight gubernatorial and U.S. Senate races.
    Non-major party voters who were polled leaned slightly more Republican than Democrat, with 41.5 percent indicating they would be more likely to vote GOP in the November 2022 election compared with 38.1 percent more likely to vote for a Democrat.
    In match-ups between Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak and the two GOP gubernatorial frontrunners —  former U.S. Sen. Dean Heller and Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo — non-major party voters placed the governor even with Heller (42.3 percent to 42.1 percent) and about 5 points behind Lombardo (39.6 percent to 44.7 percent).

    Nevada is facing a crisis with child care, as the lack of it or cost of it are forcing mothers out of the workforce and slowing the economic recovery, Nevada’s 3rd U.S. House District Rep. Susie Lee, D-Las Vegas, said on Nevada Newsmakers.
    “When you look at what we need to do to get this economy back on track, making sure families have access to affordable child care, to me, is on top of the list,” Lee told host Sam Shad. “It is something I hear every, single day from my constituents, that they struggle. If you are going to work and you’re making about $40,000 a year, and you’re spending $15 an hour on child care, it makes it hard to pay other bills.”

    Amid nationwide struggles to move billions in federal rental aid from local and state governments to tenants and landlords, Nevada has picked up the pace and now sits in the top tier of states for getting help out the door. 
    Data released by the U.S. Treasury Department on Friday shows that as of Aug. 31, Nevada has distributed roughly $79 million, or 42 percent of the federal funds it received as part of the first round of the Emergency Rental Assistance Program. That means the Silver State ranks tenth in the nation for rental aid disbursement.
