Now we are beginning to see what $5.35 million gives us on a state highway – not very much, and certainly a poorly-thought-out project.

How proud can we be of our newly elected state legislators? Working so hard to pass “minimum wage” laws for Nevada.
The resignation of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. White House internal disputes that stall policy decisions. Even a mini-crisis involving North Korea.
From time to time I write about organizations that help veterans, and I usually note that there are so many such groups, perhaps they tend to overlap. In fact, there is often much overlap, but each major group does have a positive specialty of some type. This month I wish to honor the Paralyzed Veterans of America, Nevada Chapter.
Nevada Democrats have gone bonkers. Not only are they suffering from a combination of PESD (Post-Election Stress Disorder) and TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome), but apparently they’ve been caught up in some kind of time warp.
What do visitors first see when they drive into Pahrump from Las Vegas on Highway 160?
Thank you to the Show Committee and to the many Shadow Mountain Quilters volunteers who worked long hours to make the Pins & Needles Quilt & Needlework Show such a beautiful and fun event.
Craig Deare, appointed by Donald Trump a month ago to head the National Security Council’s western hemisphere division, was fired Feb. 17.
If I am to believe the deluge of calls to my cell phone this week I have some real problems that need to be addressed.
If you’re a conservative like me, your knee-jerk reaction to any suggestion of changing our presidential elections to a national popular vote isn’t just no, but … “Heck (or stronger), no!” After all, Al Gore and Hillary Clinton both won the popular vote but lost the elections under the current system, right?
A dear friend, Misty, sent me a photocopy of a letter to the editor from Susan Wonderly, director of the Pahrump Community Library.
Thank you to all the great people in the Pahrump Valley Cruisers. You made the car shows you put on each year great. Doing a car show is an enormous undertaking for the staff and the many volunteers. All of you worked very hard each and every year to make the car shows fun for the car owners and townspeople who came to enjoy them.
As you know, I ran for the Assembly here in District 36; I won Nye County. So I feel I must speak on behalf of the thousands of people who voted for me. As you know, I ran on TAXES and WATER. This year’s Legislature has approximately 25 water bills it will be voting on. Many opportunities to take the very water we rely on to live. Many of these bad water bills have come from the Nye County Water District … Gee, no surprise there.
There’s good news from the new “Future of the First Amendment” survey released earlier this month: High school students nationwide show greater support for First Amendment freedoms that at any time since the survey began more than 10 years ago.
Implementing fully legalized marijuana in Nevada should be tough.
U.S. Rep. Mark Amodei of Nevada introduced legislation in the last Congress to give certain select lands to Nevada, and is expected to introduce a similar measure in the new Congress. Note that I did not phrase it “RETURN certain select lands to Nevada,” as common usage has it, which, however, is disputed. Many experts on the topic say the lands never belonged to the state.
On February 1, a gang of violent thugs managed to shut down a speech scheduled to take place at the University of California at Berkeley, metaphorically making the birthplace of the Free Speech Movement of the 1960s into that movement’s grave site.
Las Vegas doesn’t like you. Well, maybe that’s not fair. A recent study found that most residents of Las Vegas never venture out to the rural areas. Therefore, Las Vegas doesn’t know you even exist.
While new President Donald Trump bolted out of the starting gate and was halfway around the track before the left even knew the race had started, new Democrat Senate Majority Leader Aaron Ford stumbled out of the gate over his two left feet on opening day of the 2017 Nevada Legislature.
The retirement of U.S. Sen. Harry Reid, a new U.S. president, and a Republican-controlled Congress could mean changes for the Yucca Mountain Project? This is the second part of a two-part column.
On Jan. 27, International Holocaust Remembrance Day, President Donald Trump issued an executive order temporarily halting immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries, suspending the refugee program and permanently imposing a religious test for refugees going forward.
It’s hard to believe, but just 12 weeks after one of the most unpleasant elections in history, Nevada journalists were writing last week about the election two years from now.
I am writing to make you aware of the excellent care my mother received from Desert View Hospital during an unexpected stay at Desert View.
