  • Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy is assembling ‘team of legal advisers’ to take on feds

    Washington Times ^ | May 14, 2014 | Cheryl K. Chumley
    Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy said in a lengthy written statement that he’s not going to sue the federal government after all, despite the number of lawyers he says have lined up to state his case against the Bureau of Land Management for free. At the same time, he wrapped his statement by saying that he’s “assembling a team of legal advisers” to help decide his family’s best course of action. The Bundy family has been at the center of a nationally watched armed standoff with the BLM over grazing fees. And some have said Mr. Bundy has a valid...
  • Lieutenant governor’s race has legs in 2016 national politics

    Las Vegas Sun ^ | Kyle Roerink
    The statewide race that seems to be gathering the greatest attention among political power brokers is for the position that carries the least power: lieutenant governor. The primary election June 10 is a proxy battle between the state’s two most influential politicians — Democrat Sen. Harry Reid and Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval — and the zeal of the far right. This race normally wouldn’t catch voters’ eyes, but this campaign could define Nevada’s political landscape for 2016 and beyond. That’s because a Republican win could open the door for a well-funded, popular Sandoval to challenge Reid as the party continues...

    Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval on Tuesday blasted the Bureau of Land Management for its "offensive" conduct in a bitter dispute with a farmer whose cattle graze on federal land — including the bureau’s designation of a "First Amendment area" where people can protest. In a scalding statement, Sandoval jumped squarely into the middle of a 20-year-old feud between farmer Cliven Bundy and the BLM — focusing his wrath specifically on a penned-in area that the federal agency considers the only place where people can speak freely. "Most disturbing to me is the BLM's establishment of a 'First Amendment area' that...

    State and university employees may see a temporary 2.5 percent salary reduction solidified into a permanent pay cut. Gov. Brian Sandoval’s budget director Jeff Mohlenkamp told a legislative committee Saturday that the administration may amend a bill to make those salary reductions permanent. As written now, Senate Bill 483 extends current 2.5 percent salary reductions until June 30, 2015, at which time they’d go away and employees would get 2.5 percent of their salaries back. “We would seek to modify that bill to make the pay cut permanent, and then we would make the affirmative decision to restore the pay...

A crowd of more than 500 demonstrators gathered Sunday in front of the fountains of the Bellagio casino resort. They chanted and urged passing motorists to show support by honking vehicle horns.

    Poll: Sandoval has 50 percent to Rory Reid's 31 percentSunday, August 1, 2010 LAS VEGAS (AP) — Republican Brian Sandoval has a double-digit lead over Democrat Rory Reid in the Nevada governor's race, according to a statewide poll released Saturday. The poll, conducted for the Las Vegas Review-Journal and KLAS-TV, found that Sandoval had 50 percent to Reid's 31 percent. Fourteen percent were undecided, 3 percent were for “none of these candidates” and 2 percent were for others.

    Several states with competitive Senate races saw their unemployment numbers drop in April, but that trend was bucked by Nevada, where Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D) faces low approval numbers and is a top target for Republicans. Unemployment in Reid’s state, one of the hardest hit by the housing crisis, jumped from 13.4 percent in March. The state had 40,000 fewer jobs in April 2010 compared to April 2009, according to statistics released Friday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    BAGHDAD -- Here they were, hardened combat soldiers, grounded on a military base far from the palm groves, canals and marshes where they once prowled. But at least for a moment this week, they were still the Painted Demons, the elite sniper unit that struck fear in the so-called triangle of death south of Baghdad. That couldn't be taken away: not by breaking them up, as the Army had done, and not even by the murder trials of three of their members at Camp Victory. snipInterviews and court transcripts portray a 13-man sniper unit that felt under pressure to produce...

    BAGHDAD - A military panel Friday acquitted U.S. Army Spc. Jorge G. Sandoval on charges he killed two unarmed Iraqis, but it convicted him of planting evidence on one of the men in attempt to cover up the shooting. Sandoval, 22, of Laredo, Texas, had faced five charges in the April and May deaths of two unidentified men. He was found not guilty of the two murder charges, but the panel decided he had placed a detonation wire on one of the bodies to make it look as if the man was an insurgent.

    Spec. Jorge Sandoval lay face down in the foot-high grass, staring through his sniper rifle scope at the Iraqi man holding a rusted sickle. The man had crouched down, only his head was visible. Sandoval's spotter, Staff. Sgt. Michael Hensley, relayed the order to kill. On April 27, in dangerous terrain south of Baghdad, Sandoval pulled the trigger to fire a bullet hundreds of yards into the man's skull, killing him instantly. Moments earlier, the man, according to testimony and court documents, had been fleeing an attack on U.S. soldiers and was holding the sickle to masquerade as a farmer....

    A U.S. soldier pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges of killing Iraqis and then trying to cover it up by planting weapons on their bodies. Spc. Jorge G. Sandoval, of Laredo, Texas, has been charged with premeditated murder, wrongfully placing weapons with the remains of the Iraqis and obstructing justice. He faces a maximum sentence of life in prison if convicted. Military prosecutors said the deaths occurred separately between April and June near Iskandariyah, a mostly Sunni Arab city 30 miles south of Baghdad. The investigation began after military authorities received reports of alleged wrongdoing from fellow soldiers, the Army...
