Thankfully, Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval has delivered his LAST State of the State address. This guy has been absolutely the WORST possible governor for conservatives and Republicans in Nevada. A Democrat couldn’t have done more damage.
Every year federal and state courts issue countless free-speech decisions – some protective of free-speech values and some inimical to those values. During calendar year 2016, one of my favorite decisions came from the pen of federal appeals court jurist Bruce M. Selya.

Recently Las Vegas was awarded the distinction of having some of the most expensive auto insurance rates in the county and still climbing.
The first time John Lewis marched across the Edmund Pettus Bridge outside Selma, in 1965 on the way to the Alabama state capitol during a voter registration campaign, police were waiting for him and his colleagues on the other side. Officers fractured Lewis’ skull.
A special “Thank you” to all the Valley Electric guys and Suddenlink guys who spent the better part of Thursday afternoon, Jan. 5, replacing the two 52-year-old power poles on West Wilson Road that were knocked down by an inattentive female driver.

The biggest problem in getting critically-needed education reform in this country is the public’s general inability to distinguish between the angelic classroom teacher and the evil teachers union.
Effective Jan. 1, Nevada made commercial cultivation, sale and possession of recreational marijuana legal. The state had previously decriminalized the drug for small quantity possession, and marijuana was already legally available for medical use.
This town has a very big traffic problem that they are not solving. What they are doing is just putting a large bandage on it and trying to get us all to live with it. The people who came here from the city are used to traffic chaos/confusion. The experts, who usually do a terrific job are missing a simple solution: Highway 372 should be changed to a one-way street and another street should be built going the other direction. This also should be done to Highway 160.
To the 911 operator, EMT’s and emergency room evening crews working on Jan. 7, THANK YOU for all your professionalism, competency, caring, etc., in responding to my husband’s health issues.

Farewell to 2016, arguably the worst year for religious freedom in living memory.
Donald Trump ran for president in part on a promise to “drain the swamp” that is Washington, D.C. He positioned himself as a political outsider, beholden to no one and capable of bringing sweeping changes to a federal government set in its ways. But as Inauguration Day approaches, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the fundamentals aren’t going to change much.
Did I read there were 4,700 fraud votes in two or three counties for Hillary? If so, the question about “Gun Safety” would have been Yes” selected too.
