Deception leads to investment going bad

Tennant, LauraNorthwest Territorial Mint is reorganizing

Laura Tennant, Dayton historian

“No one knew in Lyon County that Medallic Art, later, Northwest Territorial Mint, in Dayton, went bankrupt because their CEO and owner was running a Ponzi scheme and had sold all the gold, silver and other precious metals that they were storing for customers and then he got sued and lost millions of dollars in a law suit, which he lost. It was for defamation of character of another businessman and he was supposed to come up with a million or so dollars immediately and that is when the sad news hit that he and his wife or girlfriend were bilking the business out of millions and millions of dollars.”

Lyon County Sheriff’s report – Week of July 24, 2016

McNeil 3

Sheriff’s Message, Week of July 24th

Community Friends,

Every now and then we get a week of relative peace and quiet. This week was one of them. The triple digit heat wave could have easily been the culprit, forcing many people to seek the comfort of air conditioned homes. This, like its relative winter counterpart seems to help keep crime down. Read more ›

Lyon County Sheriff’s report – Week of July 17, 2016

Sheriff’s Message, Week July 17th

Community Friends,

Over the past year since we began posting arrests, bail, and mugshots, many have been questioning bail amounts in a system that seems to lack consistency and fairness. How is it that a single mother of three children who bounces a check can’t make bail while a drug dealer who can post bail, goes right back at selling drugs and further harming the community? This question smacks at the heart of the criminal justice reform debate. Read more ›

Community Friends,

It’s that time of the year when we get prepared for over 10,000 people to descend upon Mason Valley for the annual Night in the Country Music Festival next weekend.

Sheriff’s Message, Week July 3rd

Community Friends,

Everyone has probably heard of the tragedy that impacted the Dallas community – a militarily trained citizen killed five police officers in an unjustified act of racial violence. Sadly, protests have erupted across this nation, not in solidarity at stopping the violence directed against police officers, but at inciting more anti-law enforcement rhetoric. As the elected Sheriff of this county, I believe I have a responsibility speak out. Read more ›

Sheriff’s Message, Week June 19th

Community Friends,

What do you to say to an employee who has served the last five Lyon County Sheriffs, especially when they decide to retire after 29 years? As much as I wanted to deny her retirement request, Brenda Farler’s desire to spend more time with her out-of-state granddaughter is completely understandable. Read more ›
