    Thank you, Reno! It’s great to be back in Nevada…My original plan for this visit was to focus on our agenda to help small businesses and entrepreneurs. This week we proposed new steps to cut red tape and taxes, and make it easier for small businesses to get the credit they need to grow and hire.

    Take a good look at the photo below of the audience at Hillary's Reno speech today. What is interesting, besides the SMALL size of the audience, is that a whole bunch of them are wearing AFGE shirts. That stands for American Federation of GOVERNMENT Employees. That's right, they work for the government. So the obvious question, since the speech was in the middle of the day, Reno time, is were those employees being paid while attending her speech? IOW, were they watching her speech on the taxpayer's dime?

"Is he a natural-born citizen?" the Republican White House hopeful asked several thousand gathered in a Reno ballroom. Members of the crowd shouted back, "No!" "I don't know," Trump said. "Honestly, we don't know. Who the hell knows." Cruz was Trump's No. 1 target during the 65-minute event, revealing just how much of a threat the Republican senator from...

The court, in a unanimous decision written by Justice James Hardesty, found that a Reno District Court did not have the authority to grant a preliminary injunction in the labor dispute because the underlying grievance was not arbitrable under the parties’ collective bargaining agreement. A District Court judge in Reno issued the preliminary injunction in June preventing Reno from completing scheduled layoffs. The order...

Let’s get started with the review. The UWRC (AKA Unlimiteds) competitors were few and far between, with only 15 racers showing up for race week. But, the big iron was there. Returning champ, Strega, along with Voodoo, Rare Bear, Czech Mate, 232 and Dreadnaught all have the pedigree. All of them could win; nearly all of them HAVE won.

    RENO, Nev. -- Shots rang out in a Stead neighborhood early Sunday afternoon after two pit bulls attacked a jogger and his dog. It happened on Rising Sun Drive. Police say the man lives in the area and was jogging in a residential area when the pit bulls attacked. "Two loose, unrestrained pit bulls attacked his dog and when he tried to separate the pit bulls and his dog, the pit bulls attacked him," said Sgt. Joe Lever of the Reno Police Department. "He was jogging with a concealed firearm which he has a permit for. He discharged the firearm...

    Las Vegas Sun ^ | Friday, March 8, 2013 | 2 a.m. | By Anjeanette Damon (contact)
    Each year, Burning Man draws 60,000 people to the Black Rock Desert north of Reno to participate in a weeklong counterculture art festival. Admittance to the bohemia isn’t free, though. You need to buy a $380 ticket. Now, some Democratic legislative leaders are looking at the ticket proceeds and wondering why the state doesn’t get a cut. “It’s how many people and they pay how much?” Senate Majority Leader Mo Denis, D-Las Vegas, said. “I definitely think we ought to look at that.” Here’s some quick math: 60,000 tickets sold at $380 a pop equals $22.8 million. Apply the state’s...

    Twenty years ago at this time we were in the midst of the federal government’s 51 day siege on a compound of Bible worshippers who with their 12 children were all snuffed out in a raid. “That’s torturing babies,” a U.S. Representative bemoaned at the Congressional hearings investigating the Waco siege during which CS gas vapor was spewed down a long arm of an armored tank onto the roof, into the rooms, and ultimately wafted down into the windowless tower where some of the women and their children were hiding in the Mount Carmel Church compound of the David Karesh...

    KJFK ^ | 3/6/13 | KJFK
    As of March 18th, “AM with I.Q., 1230 KJFK” will no longer be on-the air. KJFK recently passed the mark of 8 years as Northern Nevada’s only voice of the Progressive viewpoint. A lone voice apart from other radio stations in Reno airing views, information and attitudes from those who hold a Conservative ideology, and by the way, in competition with us for the ears of people interested the issues so vital to our country. Given the volume of rhetoric dispensed on-air from “the other side”, we felt it vital to remain on-the-air through the 2012 General Election, despite the...
  • NV EARLY VOTING: GOP NARROWLY WINS WASHOE

    11/03/2012 6:08:42 PM PDT · by sf4dubya · 69 replies
    This is pretty big news: GOP won combined Early Voting / Absentee Ballot returns in every single Nevada county including Washoe (Reno) and except Clark (Las Vegas). Obama's ground game outside of Las Vegas was decimated and is nothing compared to what he had four years ago. People were waiting on line in Reno to vote early for hours yesterday. 58.4% of Democrats voted statewide. 59.5% of Republicans voted statewide. Obama is in big trouble in Nevada. The unions in Las Vegas are going to pull out all the stops, and they have roughly a 48k lead, but it will...

  • Washoe County Early Voting Shocker

    10/23/2012 5:41:38 AM PDT · by Perdogg · 8 replies
    The vaunted Obama Ground Game has been slain … at least for one day in Washoe County, Nevada. Republicans outpaced Democrats in ballots cast on day 3 of early voting in the 2nd most important county in Nevada with Clark County clearly the top dog. Washoe made up 19% of the Nevada vote in 2008 and was carried by President Obama 55 to 43 — a total of 22, 791 votes. If Mitt Romney is going to win Nevada he must flip Washoe back into the GOP column which was won by George Bush in 2004, 51 to 47. If...
