"Moo!" Says the Cow

By Keith Rugg | Wednesday, April 7, 2021
With springtime finally here, it’s a lot more fun to take notice of the ranch animals than it is during the dreary cold winter months. When the snow is on the ground, I’m always reminded of that classic old Charlie Russell artwork, “Waiting for a Chinook,” in which the lone survivor of some 5,000 head of cattle stands... Read More

Luck of the Irish!

I’ve been spending much of this week outside enjoying the suddenly beautiful, sunny weather in Northern Nevada.

Still, there’s something to be said about how beautiful Carson City looks lighting up the cloudy night sky as... Read More

By Bryan Akerley | Wednesday, February 8, 2017
"Way out in the land of the setting sun," as Nevada's beloved state song begins, is Carson City. Back in fourth grade, you may have pounded Carson City into your brain while memorizing state capitals, but this little state capital is so much more than an answer on an geography test. It's a place full of history and... Read More
