Director of Music in Battle Mountain, John Gist, arranged for the high school choir performance of eight songs. “This is a great room for singing.

Eat or drink? Eating or drinking? Drinking and eating? Eating and drinking! Las Vegas is going over the top in May with food and drink festivals: the Springs Preserve Brews & Blues Festival, Vegas Uncork’d, Vegas Unstripped, Lee’s Beer & Tequila Experience, Best Dam BBQ Festival, and the Henderson Art Fair. So much to drink and eat; so little time to do it all! I suggest you stay the month of May in Las Vegas to try to cover everything ...

Laughlin Correspondence – May 2019

Where to go … where everybody knows your name! Let’s review the Laughlin watering holes that are ventured into by the locals. This is the answer to the question most asked, “Where do the locals go after they get finished working for the day?  Do they go to the hotel bars?”  Of course, this goes along with the question I hear most often from people who want to visit Las Vegas, which is, “So, which hotel do you live in?” ...

Lincoln County Spring and Summer Here in Lincoln County we probably will not have to wait long to see some of in state tourists.  Out-of-state tourists are welcome just as much. The Lincoln Community Action Team (LCAT) has released their 2019 events calendar for the year. However, for this article, we will focus just on activities in the month of May. That should give you time to arrange your own schedule to include a trip to Lincoln County again.  If ...

The snow is starting to melt in the Tahoe Sierra, and we can finally emerge from our Mother Nature-made igloos and get back out into the great outdoors. So, between free swing dancing lessons, Mother’s Day brunch, and golf course openings in Incline Village, it’s time to trade in the ski pants for collared shirts and start enjoying the sunshine. May 2- Country Swing Dancing Night at Mountain Workspace To kick off a summer of country music, consider picking up ...

Surprise! There are Mountain Bike Trails in Pahrump. You just finished climbing the mountain on your mountain bike. Perspiration soaks your shirt, and your body aches from the long climb up. You now claim your prize and head down the mountain. The wind whips through your hair.  The bike shakes from the rocky trail, as your Rock Shocks absorb the bumps. You probably are one of many mountain bikers surprised by the number of trails available for riding in the ...

Is that the sun?  It’s so nice to feel the warm embrace of the sun, watch the snow melt, see the flowers bloom and the lake fill up.  It’s always delayed, but it’s spring at Lake Tahoe, and that always puts a smile on my face.  The snow is all but gone at lake level, but it remains in abundance at the upper elevations, which makes for all the various streams and rivers around the basin to be blasting with ...

The weather is finally starting to warm up in Sparks, as we go from bone-dry cold to sweltering heat. However, it’s certainly a nice change from the crazy winter we just had. So, if you’re like some of us and ready to shed that winter coat and get outside and play, fortunately there’s Star Wars-inspired fun runs, community bicycle rides, and even a popular Rolling Stones cover band playing at the Nugget Resort Casino at the end of the month ...

To motor or not to motor? That is the question! Have you ever been to a polo match? They can be awesome if it is your first attendance. I experienced my first when I lived in Tennessee. It was an exclusive invite, which is rare in those circles. Now, you can experience it at Star Nursery Field at Sam Boyd Stadium in Henderson during the Las Vegas Polo Classic.

Lincoln County’s Five State Parks Springtime is a good time to plan for those summer weekend getaways,  when school is out with the kids, or for some family gathering at a favorite spot, maybe just a quiet weekend picnic or perhaps even a family vacation. Maybe this year a new location might be of interest. Consider then Lincoln County. There are five Nevada State Parks within the county itself and not a great distance from one another. The best known ...

It looks like North Lake Tahoe is finally starting to warm up, but even though we’ve shoveled out of our houses and the white stuff has melted a little bit doesn’t mean that winter is quite over yet. A few ski resorts, such as Diamond Peak and Homewood, have extended their seasons through April 21st, while Squaw Valley announced that it will stay open until July 7. Therefore, it may be time to dust off the water skis but not ...

Pahrump: Gateway to Adventure Few towns live up to their nicknames in America. A few examples: Los Angeles, “City of the Angels.” See any angels lately in LA? New Orleans, “The Big Easy.” When was it ever easy living there? Then there is New York, “The Big Apple.” When was the last time you picked an apple there? All kidding aside, this makes Pahrump kind of special, for Pahrump does live up to its new nickname, “Gateway to Adventure.”  (It’s ...

I think we should start a new tradition of giving each other gifts on Nevada Day — something made in the state, or at least Nevada-related. I realize we have several months before Nevada Day rolls around again, but I want to give you a heads-up so you can be thinking about it. This comes up because, of course, the Legislature is still in town. As you know, most of them are from Las Vegas and were welcomed on their ...
