NV GOP MUST UNITE BEHIND TRUMP

Donald Trump was overwhelmingly selected by the grassroots of the Republican Party after a grueling primary with over a dozen excellent potential choices.

And he did it with the greatest number of votes in GOP history, and in the very teeth of sneering pundits, a hostile media and a united GOP establishment hell-bent on forcing another Bush on the Party. Read more ›

Lyon County Sheriff Message – Week of September 11, 2016

Sheriff’s Message, Week of September 11th

Community Friends,

Finally, after the commissioners approved 1.5 million dollars a year and a half ago for our communication infrastructure upgrade, the first phase was installed this week. Our communication center (dispatch) has five stations, each with computer hardware in excess of twelve years old. As is common with outdated equipment, one station was inoperable because it was cannibalized to keep other stations working. Why the delay? When there is only one regional vendor with no competition, you are at their mercy. Read more ›

Lyon County Sheriff’s Message – Week of September 4, 2016

Sheriff’s Message, Week of September 4th

Community Friends,

Our founding fathers warned us about the dangers of mobocracy. Their fear was that a rich man could use money to influence a direct vote. That fear has come to realization by a ballot initiative called Question 1, Nevada Background Checks for Firearm Purchases. Sadly, many Nevada residents will be voting to pass a law that they haven’t completely read or debated. In excess of three million dollars has already come into Nevada by Michael Bloomberg’s group in an attempt to pass this law, with simple slogans like “keeping guns out of criminal’s hands” or “common sense legislation.” Read more ›

Sheriff’s Message, Week of August 28th

Community Friends,

Humanity is an interesting topic, especially as it relates to a peace officer’s life. They begin their careers “bright eyed and bushy tailed,” with the energy to save the world. It is later in their career that they start to become jaded. Research data suggests their thinking becomes clouded at the five to seven year mark. It is here that many become disillusioned with the job, their purpose, and humanity. Read more ›

Sheriff’s Message, Week of August 21st

Community Friends,

Shortly after assuming the Office of Sheriff in January 2015, Alea Clark was reported missing. Our detectives knew it was a homicide and suspected that her boyfriend, Ryan Coddington was involved; however, we had to find Alea’s remains. We brought in every available resource, including our SAR, Nevada Division of Investigation, elements of the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office, cadaver dogs, and even a ground sonar search specialist. Eventually, we found her remains in two separate locations in a horrendous and elaborate scheme to destroy and conceal those remains. Read more ›

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.”

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 ›
