Lincoln County Correspondence – January 2018

E.T. Highway and E.T. Jerky “Calling occupants of interplanetary craft!” Well, it’s better than the "CQ, CQ" call we used to use with my cousin’s ham radio back in the '60s. Worked just fine for human earthlings, not so much for intergalactic aliens. But maybe it was because we just weren’t in the right place. Now I live in place that might be right, or so some people have said.  Not much concrete evidence to support the claim, but claims ...

America’s Most Patriotic Town American Flags are constantly flying throughout the town of Hawthorne, set apart as being America’s Most Patriotic Town. In honoring many different wars and those that served within those wars, Veteran’s Park stands as a cornerstone to Hawthorne’s northern entrance along Highway 95. Throughout the year, the people of Hawthorne plan for their main event on Armed Forces weekend.  Town parades from any holiday celebration traditionally end at Veterans Park, where new tributes are included within ...

North Lake Tahoe Correspondence – January 2018

Happy New Year! Even though the snowstorms have been a little sparse compared to last season, it has been plenty cold enough, and there is still a lot to do in North Lake Tahoe. Last season, the first big storm didn’t come in until after January 1st, and it didn’t stop snowing until June, so hopefully we’ll have another winter like that. Thanks to amazing snowmaking capabilities, all of the ski resorts are open from the West Shore to the ...

Wheeler Well: one man's the labor of love In the Spring Mountains off of Wheeler pass, about 7,000 feet in elevation above the town of Pahrump,  sits and old rusted cattle watering tank known as Wheeler Well. It's not much to look at. The tank for the water had been dry for some fifty years, and It was full of holes from hunters using it for target practice.  Dick Senior changed all that. Dick was a man driven by the love ...

Downtown Reno: One Square Mile Edition In the colder months, we tend to stay a little closer to home. Erik pursues the “One Square Mile” theme, featuring scenes he paints within a square mile of the loft (show at La Terre Verte, downtown Reno), and we relish the opportunity to base most of our activities near home, leaving the car parked. Luckily, we live in an area that is very conducive to this. Eats Gentrification is a dirty word these ...

Searchlight: On the Road from Las Vegas to Laughlin For the next several months I will be exploring my visits to Laughlin from Las Vegas. Hopefully, it will answer at least a few of your questions about this section of our great State of Nevada! While the new Interstate 11 is being built with a bypass around Boulder City, it is nice to know that you can still get through this area to go to Laughlin without much difficulty. On ...

South Lake Tahoe Correspondence – January 2018

It’s a nice, optimistic feeling to see people get excited for all the snow at Lake Tahoe when there is no snow yet.  People arrive with high hopes and their the skis strapped to the roof of the car, but unfortunately are greeted to a town still waiting.  It doesn’t seem to dampen spirits, maybe because it’s the holiday season, a time to head into the mountains and be merry and bright.  A little of the white stuff would help ...

Carson Valley Correspondence - December 2017

Carson Valley Correspondence – December 2017

Carson Valley is “legendary” as the place where Nevada began in 1851.  The Historic Pony Express Trail borders the town of Genoa.  Minden is the town that the Dangberg’s built. Wagon roads helped to establish the town of Gardnerville during the mining boom of Aurora and Bodie. In the early days, Carson Valley was the “bread basket” for Virginia City, after the discovery of silver there, when ranchers supplied the Comstock with all of their fruit, dairy, vegetable, and meat ...

A Visit to Oats Park Arts Center Oats Park Art Center, located in a town of fewer than 9,000 residents, rivals many big city arts and entertainment venues. Once a former grammar school designed by Reno architect Frederick DeLonchamps in 1914, the building sat vacant for nearly 30 years after an earthquake caused structural and cosmetic damage in 1954. Now the two-storied building is again alive with activity and visual vibrance. “We have events almost every week,” said executive director ...

Hawthorne’s Antique Haven Along anyone’s travels, quirky little thrift stores can heighten the curiosity of every collector or junking browser who dares to drive down a small-town main street. Such is the case at 585 E Street in Hawthorne’s downtown strip. The window dressing alone sways tourists to stop by Patricia’s Estate Sale Warehouse. With items of nostalgia brimming to the top of display cases, Patricia keeps a constant flow of changing merchandise, emerging from estate sales, trades or from ...

The Pahrump Nugget 250 is not just a race The Pahrump Nugget 250 truly ranks up there as one of the most unique things about Pahrump. People who settled in this town have a natural affinity for exploring the outdoors, being so close to nature and the desert. Off-roading is one of the ways the residents regularly blow off some steam,  and so it is only fitting to celebrate that with this race. Not many towns can say they have ...
