Upon impact, before the semi overturn, the military vehicle detached from the flatbed and rolled into the westbound lanes.  At the same time, a FedEx double-load semitrailer heading west, crashed into the military vehicle. That Fedex truck and it’s two trailers erupted into flames, said Lt. Shawn Judd. The driver of the Fedex truck was injured but was able to get out of the vehicle. But his co-driver in the passenger seat was not able to extract himself in time, and was killed. He was later identified as Robert E. Kuntz, 58, of Urich, Missouri.


I-80 was closed both directions shortly after the accident, around 3 a,m, until 1 p.m. eastbound, and about until 4 p.m. westbound., closing a strech of 7 miles near Grantsville, were the accident occured, near mile marker 77. Traffic to and from Wendover was at a stop for several hours.

Highway Patrol Lt. Shawn Judd said that there was a lot of work to clear the high way from the vehicle on the median lane, the military truck and the Fedex  truck and trailers. UDOT was on location to assist the recovery towing compagny (class D towing for commercial vehicles) out of Tooele. Judd  added, UDOT will have to repair the part of the road on I-80. Udot will have to remove the old asphalt because of the fluids and the fire, and repave it.

The West Wendover High School Girls Golf team is advancing toward the goal they set at the beginning of the golf season – a Division 2 team golf championship. The Lady Wolverines have won each and every one of the five tournaments they have played, most by convincing margins. They are also heavily favored to win the sixth and final league tournament October 6 at Round Mountain. It is then off to the state tournament at the championship golf course in Incline Village, Nevada played on October 10 and 11.


This team is led by Coach Kathy Durham who, after a hiatus of several years, has returned to coach a sport she dearly loves. Coach Durham is blessed with a senior laden team, Shelby Hansen a four year starter, Sara Vera another four year veteran, Miriam Rodriguez a three year player and a welcome newcomer Maria Miramontes. It also helps to have the reigning state champion junior Sarah Isaacs and up and coming sophomore Sydney Boatman. These talented ladies have dominated the individual medal count in all tournaments resulting in their outstanding team record. Please support the West Wendover High School girls in their quest for the first ever team golf championship.

Opinion: Getting Our Act Together For America & To Win African American Vote, Trump Must Fight Despair with a Job Plan

Getting Our Act Together For America

Glenn Mollette

Glenn Mollette

The November eighth Presidential vote is coming soon. The votes will be cast and either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will be our next President. In January Barack Obama will move out of The White House and either Trump or

Clinton will move into The White House. We will have a new President and regardless who is elected a lot of people in our country will be unhappy.

A lot of people were unhappy four years ago and have always been at every

election.   By the time this is over will the Clinton people and the Trump people even be able to speak a civil word to each other? If you are going to have a peaceful gathering with your family or large number of friends you are probably wise to not mention either name. The mere mention of either name brings a rise of rhetoric, debate and unfortunate anger. Most Americans who have given our issues and candidates much thought have a lot of passion about this election and each candidate.   Social media has created a somewhat safe haven for people to share with candor how they feel about things related to this election. However, open support for eithercandidate means you can figure approximately fifty percent of your social media friends are ticked off at you and probably do not like you.   When this election is over we had better try working together in this nation. I don’t see how we can survive another four years if we continue to fight

and bite each other. Our inner cities need for all of us to come together. Our

military needs a united America. Can you imagine fighting on the  battlefield representing America while most of whom you are representing

are fighting each other? Our children and grandchildren need for us to pull

together.   There will not be an America to enjoy if we don’t get our act  together in this country.

To Win African American Vote, Trump Must Fight Despair with a Job Plan

Donald Trump’s effort to woo black voters has gotten off to a rocky start.

The GOP nominee’s main argument — that black communities have been poorly served by Democratic leaders — is certainly powerful. But, as recent polls have shown, this strategy has yet to move the needle with African


What’s missing from Trump’s appeal is a positive vision for how he will

improve the lives of black Americans. And a Republican proposal for

creating stable inner-city jobs is exactly the plan the Trump campaign


From Detroit to Washington, DC and Chicago, years of progressive policies have produced black communities plagued by dismally high levels of

unemployment and crime.

Look at the West Baltimore neighborhood of Sandtown-Winchester. This is

the birthplace of Freddie Gray, the young black man whose death while in

police custody sparked the riots that ravaged the city last year. Half of

the households in this area earn less than $25,000 a year, and the local

murder rate is double the citywide average.

Over the last decade, state and municipal officials have poured $130

million into Sandtown, specifically to spur local business growth and

create jobs. Their investments failed horribly. Unemployment didn’t budge.

The number of black-owned businesses actually fell.

It’s precisely these sorts of efforts that have created a sense of despair

in many black communities. Trump has a chance to replace that dreary

narrative with a hopeful vision that promises to put black Americans back

to work. Oddly enough, in crafting that plan, he’d do well to take his cue from the dreaded Carter Administration.

Back in 1977, the federal government experimented with a tax credit that

rewarded employers for making new hires. Every company that had expanded its workforce by at least 2 percent over the previous year was awarded a

tax credit worth up to $2,100 per employee — about $8,400 in today’s


This credit goosed job growth. But since it expired after one year, it

didn’t make a substantial dent in the ranks of the unemployed.

In 2010, federal lawmakers briefly resuscitated this idea specifically to

address the problem of the long-term unemployed. That program offered a

$1,000 credit for hiring workers that had been jobless for at least 60


Now imagine a permanent policy that combines elements from both of these initiatives. This new tax credit would cover the long-term unemployed for the first five years after they’ve secured a job. It would offset fully 100

percent of wages — up to, say, $24,000 — for the first year and gradually

taper off over the following four.

Such a credit would defray the costs of hiring and encourage companies to

expand. The policy would generate the kinds of long-term employment that

can transform the lives of inner-city residents.

To pay for the tax credit, Trump can propose targeted cuts to progressive

programs that aren’t working.

It’s not enough for Trump to criticize the progressive programs holding

back black communities. He needs to offer a hopeful vision of his own. A

tax credit that grows jobs from the bottom-up would provide inner city

communities with the opportunity and self-respect that Democratic leaders

have failed to deliver.

Hearth Quake Drill

Posted on 10 October 2016 by Howard Copelan

University of Nevada, Reno’s seismological lab uses drill to help Nevadans learn, prepare for earthquakes

RENO, Nev. – With more than 540,000 Nevadans already registered to participate in the annual statewide public earthquake drill, the Great Nevada Shakeout, Nevada are hoping to increase registration for the Nevada event by another 100,000 residents.

Nevadans need to realize they live in earthquake country,” Graham Kent, director of the Nevada Seismological Lab, said. “Nevada has the third highest incidence of large earthquakes in the United States.


A major earthquake in any community, north or south, is possible. We can’t prevent an earthquake, so we have to be resilient, to be prepared so we can perhaps lessen the impacts on lives and economic destruction that a major earthquake can cause.”   The Great Nevada ShakeOut is a simple, coordinated “drop, cover and hold on” exercise to be held Oct. 20 at 10:20 a.m. Last year, more than 560,000 Nevadans participated. To register as an individual, business, school or government agency or organization, go to the official website All Nevada residents are encouraged to register and participate.   “We have schools participating from all parts of Nevada, mostly entire school districts, plus the University ofNevada, Reno,” Graham Kent, director of the Seismological Lab, said. “That’s a lot of students. Now we’re focusing on getting their parents and their employers – whether private or government – to register and participate. Everyone in Nevada needs to have a plan and practice for an earthquake.”   Participants of the drill are instructed to drop, cover, and hold on at 10:20 a.m. on Oct. 20 as if there were a major earthquake occurring at that very moment, and to stay in that position for at least 60 seconds – which is about the time it takes to register for the earthquake drill.   “The beauty of this exercise is that it’s really easy,” Kent said. “It’s an easy way for people to practice how to protect themselves during earthquakes. It’s an action that’s proven to help reduce injury and death during an earthquake. We’d like to keep growing the event year after year.”


Participants are also encouraged to practice other aspects of emergency plans and to “secure your space,” which includes retrofitting buildings to reduce damage and securing things within that building to prevent injury.   The State of Nevada lies within the Basin and Range Province, one of the most seismically active regions in the United States.

Along with California and Alaska, Nevada ranks in the top three states subject to the most large-scale earthquakes during the last 150 years.
