NevadaGram #214 - Spring Sprang in Nevada

Northern Nevada is shrugging itself awake as the heavy winter snows melt away. Here in Gold Hill the change of season made the usual overnight transition from furious blizzard to peachy sunrise with soft flirty breezes. The result is conflict between the urge to weed-eat, prune, dig, delve and otherwise greet the resurgence of nature, and the urge to put up the Maypole and dance. Curtis Fong has put away his skis and brought his bike out onto the road again. Gage Smith has raised a little dust in Unionville on his first Dirt Road expedition of the year. Our Correspondents have left winter behind and are eagerly embracing the spring from Laughlin to Elko to Lake Tahoe . Let's all do that. Let's go climb a mountain, see some Nevada flowers.Read more

Austin Correspondence - May 2019

St. Augustine’s Spring Event Friday, April 12th, St. Augustine’s Cultural Center in Austin, Nevada, hosted the Battle Mountain High School Choir and Organist Aaron Pellegrini of Yerington in celebration of its Spring Event. 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. There is a natural reverb, and it’s a very live room. I also feel it’s important for students to build a relationship with significant historical sites, especially when they relate to historical culture near their homes. We are Nevadans, and this is Nevada,” Mr. Gist said. The choir consisted of eighteen performers in grades nine through twelve.  His performance arrangement included songs with beautiful lyrics from a Swahili love song, The Star Spangled Banner and When I Fall In Love. Audrey Farr, a 2018 Battle Mountain graduate and resident of nearby Antelope Valley, was accompanist for the choir.Read more
