Silver Springs is NOT a Dump Site!

Think Twice and Do Your Homework before Moving to Silver Springs.

Yes. It’s the beautiful high desert. You can live in a house on five acres of land in a nice rural setting with your horse, goat, dogs, and maybe a cat or two. You can even live off-grid if you choose.

Here’s what you need to know.  The water levels are dropping. There is the local water company trying to take control of the private well owner wells. Ask yourself: if you purchase a nice property on it’s own septic and well water, do you want to be forced to hook up someday to the local water companies service???

And then we have the State Water Engineer wanting to take control of ALL WELLS IN THE ENTIRE STATE OF NEVADA.

Do your homework. Do your research.

Mr. Adams response was received after the first two interviews were published. In other words, his response was submitted past the April 21 deadline with no request for an extension. While deadlines are not set in stone, I generally would not publish any response received after the posting of an opponent’s response; however, I determined to post it.  I ask readers to take into consideration the late submittal and judge the response on that basis.

Editorial: Sue Lowden for lieutenant governor

The race for lieutenant governor is normally of minimal interest, but this year it is the race to watch. The reason why is a bit complicated.

Gov. Brian Sandoval is a shoo-in for re-election, after Sen. Harry Reid reneged on his promise that Democrats would field a “respectable” opponent. But, after he wins another four-year term, will he serve all four years or move on to a bigger challenge, like taking on Reid in 2016?

He isn’t saying, for obvious reasons. But his hand-picked selection of state Sen. Mark Hutchison for lieutenant governor is a pretty bold hint.

The problem is that the Nevada Republican Party had a different choice in mind, and its endorsement went to former state Sen. Sue Lowden.

We agree with the party’s choice, and the issue of mining taxes played a major role in our decision.

“I have an appreciation for the fact that mining is our second largest industry, and for many communities it’s the first industry,” Lowden told the Free Press during a visit in March. “… I think it was not prudent to vote for the issue to be on the ballot, and I certainly would be against any new taxes on mining — or for any other industry.”

The ballot question will ask voters if they want to remove the 5-percent net proceeds tax from the Nevada Constitution, which would allow lawmakers to set any type of tax they would like on the industry.

In defending his support for the question, Hutchison told the Free Press as a constitutional lawyer he believes “the people should ultimately decide what’s in their constitution.”

True. But the ballot question didn’t come through a voter initiative, it came straight out of the Senate taxation committee.

Lowden brings her own baggage into the race, including her shutdown of the 2008 GOP State Convention during a tea party revolt, and the “chickens for check-ups” debacle in her failed primary campaign for Reid’s Senate seat in 2010. Her handling of “bartergate” was almost as big a meltdown as Sandoval’s launch of the Nevada health exchange.

In terms of the job description for the lieutenant governor’s office — which is primarily focused on tourism — Lowden’s experience as a hotel-casino executive puts her in the forefront.

“I’ve spent the last three decades in the tourism industry,” she told the Free Press.

Sue Lowden is the natural choice for Nevada’s lieutenant governor. And politics are much less complicated when you take them one race at a time.

Residents ask city for help with bridge issue

For more than 40 years, residents of the Fernley Highlands area have used the Tedford Bridge to cross the Truckee-Carson Irrigation District canal and get to and from their homes.
