Sheepherders' Gathering a Success Foks traveled from as far as 700 miles to make it to the 16th annual Sheepherders' Gathering at the Border Inn. Friday night offered up fun stories about sheepherding (mis)adventures, music, and cowboy poetry by Waddie Mitchell. Saturday's events included a film screening, more great cowboy poetry, and a delicious Basque family-style dinner that filled the Border Inn to capacity. The Front Porch Pickers performed their musical magic to a full house and included the audience ...

Carson City Correspondence – February 2019

In most of Northern Nevada, the four seasons — Wind, Smoke, Avalanche, and Flood — come and go with the unpredictability of the weather. In Carson City, though, we can depend on the regularity of a fifth season — Silly. It arrives in early February of odd years (I’m pretty sure that isn’t by accident) and lasts exactly 120 days, unless Nevada’s legislators are feeling especially silly. Then we get a Special Silly Session. For most of that time, they ...

Winter Greetings from Elko. There is plenty to see and do in Elko if you are getting cabin fever. Here are a few events to consider. Skiing at the SnoBowl The season at our local ski hill is off to a good start, and it looks like there will be good conditions throughout this month if Mother Nature cooperates. The SnoBowl should be open weekends and on President's Day. There is one chairlift and a rope tow. FMI: https://www.facebook.com/snobowl/ Great ...

Pahrump has its share of Spirits If you are looking for places to go ghost hunting, then Nevada is the place to go. One can start in Southern Nevada in Las Vegas, visiting the haunted hotels and then, slowly making your way up north, hitting towns like Beatty, Rhyolite, Tonopah, Goldfield, and Virginia City. Oh, and don't forget Pahrump. With the exception of Pahrump, those towns have been chronicled as some of the most haunted towns in the United States ...

South Lake Tahoe Correspondence – February 2019

January was dubbed "Janu’Bury" by the local paper, after we received a large amount of snow for the majority of the month.  It provided a sustainable base for the slopes at the ski resorts and, more importantly, an above average snow pack that will keep Lake Tahoe at capacity.  And it’s no secret about the snow, judging by the number of visitors every weekend. When the snow is falling it still brings a sense of awe, especially when you’re settled ...

Sixteenth Annual Old Sheepherders' Gathering January might be cold, but that doesn't keep folks who love sheep from gathering at the Border Inn on January 18 and 19. This event is one-of-a-kind, with sheepherders, sheep owners, filmmakers, poets, musicians, and more gathering. The event starts Friday night with an invitational dinner followed by my favorite event of the Gathering: open-mic night. Listen to an array of stories, poems, and music of recent and distant memories about sheep. On Saturday, start ...

Photo by John Humphrey What is Eagles & Ag?  To begin with, “Ag” is short for Agriculture, and “Eagles”, well that should be self-explanatory. The two come together in Carson Valley when ...

Rainbow’s End In Henry Mancini’s Oscar-winning song "Moon River" from the 1961 movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” is the phrase “rainbow’s end, waitin’ round the bend ….” A rainbow’s end can be thought of as being in lots of places. In Lincoln County, Rainbow’s End can refer to the little area known as Elgin and the historic one-room school house there.

People don't die of starvation in Pahrump One of the biggest complaints that most rural towns in Nevada have is the lack of places to eat out. That’s not Pahrump. Pahrump is one rural town that far outpaces all the small towns of Nevada when it comes to eating out. The restaurant business has exploded in this small town like cotton did some 78 years ago. Pahrump has just about all the major fast food places that Las Vegas has, ...

What does the term “E Clampus Vitus” mean?  Well actually no member of this non-profit charitable and historical fraternal organization knows. Probably because it really has no known meaning. And by their own admission, they’re not even sure if they are a “historical drinking society or a drinking historical society”. However, they do claim to be the most “ancient of all fraternal orders.” ...
