Better listening tips

 

So.  I went out and drove our signal last night I had a clear and audible signal from Majors Place to Lages Junction.  The minor improvements in our audio processing have made a significant improvement in our signal.  

So, why are you not able to hear us better?  

1) Try turning your radio. Many radios have a ferrite antenna inside that runs the length of the radio. It is a very directional antenna.  Try rotating the radio to improve the signal.  No, I'm not going to move the 200 foot tower to help. 

2) Move the radio away from florescent or LED lighting, computers, or television sets.  The FCC knows these (mostly Chinese-made) devices interfere with AM (and in some cases FM) broadcast signals in violation of Part 15 of their rules and regulations and the FCC doesn't give a crap.  So listeners blame the stations instead of the FCC.  I'm used to it.  So, there you go.

3) Add a simple antenna.  Here are a couple of suggestions.

Ranson- Robison to Commission, Carson, Pawley advance to General

 Primary election season has mostly come to an end.  Less than a third of White Pine County voters took the initiative to make their voices heard in this primary election.  

In preliminary returns for County Commission races, Tim Pawley defeated Rebecca Murdock 509-424 in the Republican primary for Seat 2.  Pawley will face former Ely Mayor George Chachas and Doug Saunders in the November General Election.  

In the Seat 3 primary former Ely City Councilperson Pat Ranson Robison took a tight 20 vote victory 466-446 win over Scott Romos.  As there are no general election challengers, Robison will become the Seat 3 commissioner if the results hold up.   

In Seat 4 Paula Carson wins the Republican nomination with over 47 percent of the vote in a three-way race.  Carson received 442 votes to Samantha Stroud’s 261 and former commissioner Ian Bullis with 229.  Results are unofficial pending any straggler mail-in votes and the official vote canvas next week. 

Turning to statewide results, unsurprisingly Jacky Rosen won her Democrat primary with over 90 percent of the vote. She will face veteran Sam Brown in the General Election with nearly 60 percent of the vote.   

Meanwhile in House races District 2 congressman Mark Amodei fended off the challenges of Fred Simon in a 64-35 percent margin.  In House District 4 incumbent Steven Horsford will face off against former North Las Vegas mayor John Lee who fended off a large field including David Flippo in a narrow 48-45% margin.

In State Senate races former Assemblyman John Ellison of Elko will take the seat of Term limited Pete Goicoechea with almost 60% of the vote over Bill Hockstedler of Pahrump and Chelsy Fischer of Pahump. 

Turnout for this election has to be considered dismal, as statewide only 16% of registered voters cast ballots, less than 330-thousand voters.  In White Pine County just over 13-hundred voters cast ballots, just over 29 percent.

How important is Agriculture to White Pine County? A lot, it turns out

So, why have we added significant Agriculture programming to KELY? There are a lot of reasons.  26 million reasons in fact.    

Agriculture contributes to the local economy, community livelihoods, and land use.  The Nevada Department of Agriculture tells us White Pine County's food & agriculture sector accounts for 269 jobs. White Pine County's food & agriculture sector total exports were $26 million in 2015. White Pine County is home to 160 farms & ranches, 41 percent of which are 49 acres or smaller and 26 percent of which are 500 or more acres.

That's why KELY has partnered with the All Ag Network and the Western Ag Network to bring not only frequent Agriculture market updates but morning farm programming from 5am to 7am each weekday.




Here are some key points illustrating Agriculture's significance to White Pine County:

  1. Economic Contribution: Agriculture in White Pine County is a critical part of the local economy. Farming and ranching provide employment opportunities and support local businesses, including feed stores, equipment suppliers, and processing facilities.

  2. Land Use: A significant portion of White Pine County's land is used for agricultural purposes. This includes both crop production and livestock grazing. The rural nature of the county means that large tracts of land are available for these activities.

  3. Livestock Production: The county is known for its livestock production, particularly cattle and sheep ranching. This form of agriculture is well-suited to the arid climate and the vast rangelands of the region.  Just to our north, Elko County, was named by Drovers magazine as the fourth in their listing of the top 34 beef cow counties in America.


  4. Crop Production: Although limited by the arid environment, crop production still plays a role. Irrigated farming allows for the cultivation of crops such as alfalfa, which is essential for feeding livestock.


  5. Cultural Heritage: Agriculture is part of the cultural and historical fabric of White Pine County. Many families have been involved in farming and ranching for generations, maintaining traditions and contributing to the community's identity.

  6. Environmental Stewardship: Farmers and ranchers in White Pine County often engage in practices that promote environmental sustainability. This includes managing land and water resources carefully to ensure long-term productivity and ecological health.

  7. Local Food Supply: Agricultural activities support local food supply chains, providing fresh produce and meat to residents. This is particularly important in rural areas where access to a variety of foods can be more limited.

In summary, agriculture in White Pine County is vital not only for its economic impact but also for maintaining the rural character, supporting local communities, and preserving environmental resources.  And this is why KELY devotes significant portions of our broadcast day to programming about our food supply.  

After all, if you eat, you're involved in Agriculture!

Full 2024 filing information for White Pine County and Nevada

Here's a complete rundown on who filed to run for office in White Pine County and for statewide races of interest as we broadcast this morning. 

A Couple of surprises as filing for the 2024 city and county races closed on Friday.
There will be a primary in two of the commission seats as Republicans Rebecca Murdock and Tim Pauley filed for Commission Seat 2.  The winner will face former Ely Mayor George Chaghas and Doug Saunders in the November General Election. 

In Seat 3 Republicans Pat Ranson Robison and Scott Romos will battle it out in the primary.  The winner will advance unopposed in the general election. (This is a correction from this morning's news)

And in Seat 4 a surprise as former commissioner Ian Bullis filed to take on two other Republicans Paula Carson and Samantha Stroud. Voters turned out Bullis from his commission seat in the 2022 primary.  The winner of the primary will face Jason Merlino who filed as a Nonpartisan candidate. 

In the Ely Justice of the Peace race Stephen Bishop and Bodie Golla advance to the general election in November.
In the White Pine County School Board there will be no election as Angie McVicars, Krystal Blades, Blaze Griffin, Shella Nicholes, and Candice Campeau had no opposition.  
The same for the Hospital District Board of Trustees and Dr Todd Wilkin and Kimberly Cunningham had no opposition.   
   
There were no filings for the Baker Sewer/Water Board, the McGill Ruth Sewer Water Board, Soil Conservation District, or the White Pine Television District. 

There will be no primary election for Ely City Council. Mayor Nathan Robertson will automatically have his second term in office as no one filed to oppose him.  In the two city council seats former Mayor Melody Van Camp will face Dean Reynolds in the General Election for Seat 2, while  Tony Enriquez and Dennis Perea will face off for Seat 4.  

In Congressional District 2 Republican incumbent Mark Amodei will see opposition from within the party from Dr. Fred Simon of Gardnerville.  Simon ran for Governor in 2022. Simon is a trauma surgeon and owns a Minden restaurant.  Amodei has held the District 2 seat since 2011.

In Congressional District 4 Three Republicans have filed to take on the incumbent Democrat Steven Horsford.  Most prominent among them is former North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee, who also ran for Governor in 2022.  Lee will face Bruce Frazey and David Alton Flippo, both from Las Vegas.  Horsford will face Desharn Shultz of Las Vegas in the primary. 

In State Senate District 19 there will be a primary as former Republican Assemblyman John Ellison from Elko faces off against a pair from Pahrump.  Nye County School Board Trustee Chelsy Fischer and William Eric Hockstedler who ran for Senate in 2022.  

In State Assembly District 33 no one filed against Spring Creek incumbent Bert Gurr, nor did anyone file against District 38 incumbent Gregory Scott Koenig of Fallon.

In the US Senate race incumbent Jacky Rosen faces opposition in her own party from Troy Walker and Mike Schaefer of Las Vegas.  The Republican field is crowded and led by former Army Captain Sam Brown, who has significant support from several political action committees and politicians. Twelve other candidates have filed for the Republican nomination including former assemblyman and perennial candidate Jim Marchant, Edward T. Hamilton, Bill Conrad, Vincent Geronimo Rego, Ronda Kennedy, Stephanie Phillips, Gary A. Marinch, Walter A. "Tony" Grady Jr., Barry Cameron Lindemann, Jeffrey Ross Gunter, Garn Mabey,  and Shawn White.
