Elections are coming

 We need responsible people to run for office in Ely and White Pine County who have the best interests of all the citizens and all the county, and not their own interests or other $pecial intere$ts.  The following is information for running from the great White Pine County Clerk Nichole Stephey.

Brown accuses County Clerk, DA of unprofessionalism

 Accusations of retaliation against a member of the Regional Planning Commission by other elected County officials are on today’s Ely City Council agenda.  In a five page defense Leah Brown claims she’s trying to be removed from the board for failing to take the oath of office for over a year, that despite her serving on the RPC for more than five years.  Brown is claiming unprofessionalism and misconduct by County Clerk Nichole Stephey and District Attorney James Beecher.

Boondoggle moves to the Ely City Council

 For some reason, the people at rPlusHydro must think the people of White Pine County are stupid.  Now the company is taking their bogus survey that ignores all the major points made by the Railroad and the Great Basin Water Network to the Ely City Council this Thursday.  

Here's a link to their survey - https://www.cityofelynv.gov/pdf/CityCouncil2024/1-25-24/Whitepinepumpedstoragepresentation.pdf

Look over their presentation, then check out stepupforsteptoe.com and see the real truth of how this bogus project from a group of out-of-state carpetbaggers wants to steal our water and change the face of our county forever.  Can we afford to lose 1 point 6 billion gallons of water a year?  Tell the City Council NO to this boondoggle Thursday, January 25 at 5pm.

COMMENTARY: Who's going to work there?

 Wyatt’s current commentary:


So special interests got their way at last weeks Ely City Council meeting and Slot Parlors are now legal in Ely.  Yes, you have to have a restaurant and bar, but this slap in the face of people who actually invested in our community by a couple of locals who are better than you will have additional unintended consequences.  In a community that continues to lose population year after year, who’s going to work there?  We just lost another restaurant in Ely with the closing of the Cellblock, EmployNV tells us there are over a hundred jobs available including postal, Sheriffs office, and the prison. If we can’t fill those good paying jobs, how do we propose to fill lower paying jobs?  Opinions mine, not necessarily those of the station, management, or sponsors...but they ought to be. 



Opposing opinions are welcome.
