Recreation Board

May 19, 2016

Public Comment:

  Bryane Goeringer (Jailhouse Casino ) “We have been following what the city has done with taking the 2%, this is boarder line legal. We should be getting some legal advice from the Attorney General’s office. I feel the representatives on this board you guys should look into this.”

  Shane Bybee (Copper Queen Hotel) “I agree with Frank, I feel it is you guys who should review this. With the mines soft, this cuts the lags  off tourism. I would like to have a meeting with the hotel/ motel owners on the agenda.”

  Chairman Flanges “Mr Bybee  you had a suggestion. We will put this on the agenda for our next meeting.”

Budget – 2016 – 2017 passed

Review of the financial report

  Ed “The room tax is down 15 % again this month. I expect the room tax to be $957,000., we had expected $897,000.”

Revenues –

Room taxes (6-30-2015) $1,205,846.  (6-30-2016) $1,069,650.  Expected (6-30-20017) $1,100,000.

Vision For White Pine County:

I see a time when it cost less to live here through less taxes and responsible spending. When local governments work together for the common good of everyone. Where people move here for the outstanding schools and innovative learning. I see a future where small time manufacturing using modern equipment is created in Ely in waves. Homes and jobs growing at a good rates. A place where we preserve our heritage from our historic buildings to our time test tradition of volunteerism. Can you see the path that leads evermore upwards? It doesn’t take everyone to pursue a future like this (just a few) to build, to follow paths and to stand steady. Where the doing of a thing doesn’t have to do with personal gain and everything to do with the fact that it should be done. I see an Ely where our seniors are prized, valued, and loved for who they are, knowledge and capabilities. I not only see these things. I see a path that will get us there.

Mike Coster

As you know, I’m running for reelection as a County Commissioner. This year, this Commission seat will (most likely) be decided in the Primary election since my opponent is in the same political party. Voting starts soon, and you need to know my positions on important items. And, surprise, they are the same points I promised you 4 years ago and have stuck to as your representative.

I will not support any new tax or tax increases. I committed to that when I sought election the first time, and I have NOT voted for any new taxes or tax increases.

My opponent in the Primary is concerned about the golf course and is running to “protect” it. He and others think that my unwillingness to add another ½ % room tax increase is “anti-golf course.” It isn’t. I am trying to raise more funds for the golf course to have a balanced budget, but money can come from existing tour and rec program. I informed the golf pro of that in a meeting he asked me to attend, and I have said the same more recently in a Commission meeting.

The County room tax is 11%, they want ½ percent for the golf course, and another 2% increase is sought by the T&Rec Board. 13.5% would make ours the highest in Nevada — and put us above both of the two rates in place in Clark County/Las Vegas.

12333061_10101528970008900_1291093101_o

My view is this: White Pine County residents are overtaxed. WP County has plenty of taxes and not enough accountability for that money. We need to scrutinize each particular budget and if there REALLY aren’t enough revenues after reallocating and reducing expenses, and only then could legitimately consider any new/increased tax. (Room tax, sales tax, electric franchise tax, or other.)  This has not been done by the County during my time on the County Commission, despite my efforts and public comments. Tour and Rec, for example, is very vague on their budget, particularly travel and personnel costs, and does not warrant an increase in the tax without a real showing of need — and a clear plan for that tax money. My opponent has spoken at the City Council meeting in support of the tax, though the majority of the hotel/motel operators have spoken against room tax increases, saying it will only be bad for business.

And the problem exists at the Commission itself, too.  The County Commission KNOWS of potential cost savings, but the 3 person majority has declined to take action. We’ve been given two years of promises to “look at it in the future.” Can you say “smoke and mirrors?”  One Commission candidate said they would not support the electrical franchise tax before they were elected, but only 2 months after the election voted for it. (And it was a 3-step increase, adding more tax in 2017 and 2019!), explaining that they didn’t realize how badly the revenues were needed. Your representatives need to do their homework and keep their commitments to voters.  I have and I will continue.

Thanks for reading this and bring on the questions.

Richard Howe

My name is Richard Howe and I am seeking re-election to the W.P. county Commission in seat 4.

  I was raised in Ely along with 5 brothers and 1 sister. We all attended White Pine County Schools in the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s. Myself and brother Steven both attended Sacred Heart school from the day it opened in 1958. I attended White Pine High School and graduated in 1968. While in high school, I played football , basket ball and baseball.

  Upon graduation from High School I was the 1st person in our class to get drafted into the U.S. Army, where I proudly served from June 68 to June 70. From my family 5 of us boys served in the U.S. Military. 3 in the Army, 1 in the Navy and 1 National Guard. My younger brother Steven was 1 of the 15 heroes from White Pine County that were killed in action in Vietnam.

  After my military service I returned to White Pine County, where I went to work for Kennecott. I worked there for 6 years until the big layoff in 1976, at which time I began my career with the U.S. Postal Service, where I worked for 34 years until my retirement .

  I have 4 sons, Richard, Steven, Peter and Patrick. Next year Patrick will join Steven and Peter as college graduates of U.N.R. Peter also has a masters degree from U. C. Davis California.

  I have 4 grand children, Stevens son Nicholas & daughter Emily. Peter’s has 2 boys, Trent & Ryland.

  I have always been very active in White Pine County, chairing the last 2 all class reunions. Through the reunions we raised several thousands dollars all of which remained right here in White Pine. Nearly every non- profits received large donations from these events. The weekends these were held also pumped thousands into the local economy. I was also heavily involved in getting large donations from our mining industry, make large donations to the local Senior Center, charter school (McGill renovation committee, just to name a few.)

  Over the years my passion has always been the volunteers of White Pine. I have put on the last 5 High School assemblies, working with the W.P. Community Choir. We strive to keep the memories of those who served always in the minds of our youth.

  The most memorable and rewarding thing I have ever done was with the major donation from the Robinson mine. I was able to organize a special trip called the “Honor Flight” for our WWII Vets to go to Washington  D.C. (Free of charge). These Heroes now well into their 80s were treated to an event that will remain with them for ever.

  I have served on the commission for 3 1/2 years and have always been a strong voice for you the citizens of White Pine. I consider myself to be a strong fiscal conservative. I have strived to achieve a balanced budget although this has not been achieved. I remain committed to attain this goal. This year during the budget cycle, I gave the commission what I believe was a path to balancing the budget. None of my idea were adopted. They involved very hard decisions, decisions I believe need to be addressed if we are going to balance the budget.

  I am proud of my service to you the citizens. Every vote that I made, I believe were in the best interest of all the citizens of white pine county and not the special interest.

  I would appreciate your continued support.

Thank you Richard Howe

Beloved Wendover Art Teacher Retiring

Posted on 30 May 2016 by Howard Copelan

Art Teacher, and National Honor Society's Advisor, Cheryl Bishop.

Art Teacher, and National Honor Society’s Advisor, Cheryl Bishop.

West Wendover Art Teacher, Cheryl  Bishop who by  her dedication to her students and her art, inspired many to strive, is retiring this end of the school year. She has been so inspiring that for the last several years, her students have won many or all Best of Shows  and First places at the County level.

Cheryl Bishop's art

Art by Cheryl Bishop

She also helped her students recognize the importance of Veterans Day by pushing them to enter into the yearly poster Contest organized by the High Desert Advocate. She won in 2014 1st Place with a Clay Sculpture, at a art contest for Wendover Will as part of Nevada’s  150 years Anniversary. And in 2015, helped Meagan Leggett design a mural for the local preschool. The good deeds and good influence that she spread goes on and on. And her patience and smile, together with her encouragements, is may be what made her students love her so much. She also was the counselor for the West Wendover Branch of the National Honor Society. She will be  missed when she goes.

Spring Concert At The Concert Hall

Posted on 30 May 2016 by Howard Copelan

IMG_2672:a

This year Spring Concert venue, the Concert Hall, was again generously given by the Peppermill Casinos. This permitted the tradition started by past Music Teacher, Miss Eklund, and continued by this year Music Teacher Mr. Devin Marvosh, to happen. And it was beautiful as usual, with all the arrangements, the well trained voices, guitars, drums,  and all the Band instruments. It was a delight to hear and see, the  youthful voices, the fingers on the instruments, or the joy and the nervousness of all this youth. It was a lifting experience, both for the audience and the performers. Mike Polise, Musician and expert in instruments, was at the piano throughout the evening.

Living With Fire Program team received the “Great Basin Fire Mitigation, Education and Prevention Award” at the Great Basin Fire Mitigation, Education and Prevention Conference held last month in Boise, Idaho.

  “The Living With Fire team is an amazing group,” said State Fire Mitigation and Trespass Specialist Jennifer Myslivy, with the Bureau of Land Management in Idaho. “They don’t just help people within Nevada — their work reaches all across the United States.”

Imperfect Proposal ad May 31&June 1

  Living With Fire Program Directors Sonya Sistare and Ed Smith, and Nevada Network of Fire Adapted Communities Coordinator Elwood Miller were chosen by a panel with representatives from Nevada, Idaho and Utah. The Living With Fire team was selected based on their cooperation with communities and program partners, their community impact, their educational materials, and their overall interactions and approaches to spreading wildfire awareness and teaching homeowners how to live more safely with the threat of wildfire.

  “Living With Fire has received other forms of recognition in the past, but this award is especially meaningful because it comes from our peers in wildfire mitigation education who understand the significance of the issue and the associated challenges,” said Smith.

  The conference includes wildfire mitigation and prevention specialists from Nevada, Idaho, Utah, South Dakota, eastern California and western Wyoming, with presenters from the U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, various State Divisions of Forestry and local fire services.

Old Technique Used To Restore Fire Damaged Public Lands

Posted on 30 May 2016 by Howard Copelan

Old Technique

ELY – Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Ely District firefighters are using a centuries-old technique to sow bitterbrush seed along the east bench of Nevada’s Schell Creek Range to increase shrub cover on public lands burned by wildfire.

Firefighter James Millar explained, “Just poke a hole in the soil with the planter bar, drop in a few seeds and cover, take five steps forward and repeat the process.”

  Chris McVicars, BLM Ely District natural resource specialist, said the seeding is one of several treatments that make up the 3,700-plus acre East Schell Bench Wildlife Habitat Restoration Project.  He said the BLM will also aerially seed forbs, grasses and shrubs; plant ephedra, four-wing salt bush, and sagebrush; and treat cheatgrass, and Canada and Musk thistle with herbicide.

Imperfect Proposal ad May 31&June 1

“Increasing forb and shrub cover will benefit greater sage-grouse, elk, mule deer, pronghorn antelope and many other wildlife species.  It will also improve rangeland health by increasing soil moisture longevity and reducing erosion,” McVicars said.

The $535,000 project is a collaborative effort by the BLM, Forest Service, Nevada Department of Wildlife, Nevada Division of Forestry, Eastern Nevada Landscape Coalition, Mule Deer Foundation and local permittees.  Funding is provided through the Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act.  Project completion is slated for March 2017. Permanent research plots will monitor the project’s success.

Opinion

Posted on 30 May 2016 by Howard Copelan

 

Clinton’s Loving Wife

If you happen to see the Bill Clinton five minute TV ad for Hillary in which he introduces the commercial by saying he wants to share some things we may not know about Hillary’s background, beware as I was there for most of their presidency and know them better than just about anyone.  I offer a few corrections:

Bill says  :

“In law school Hillary worked on legal services for the poor.”

Facts are :

Hillary’s main extra-curricular activity in ‘Law School’ was helping the Black Panthers, on trial in Connecticut for torturing and killing a ‘Federal

Agent’.  She went to Court every day as part of a law student monitoring

committee trying to spot civil rights violations and develop grounds for

appeal.

Bill says  :

“Hillary spent a year after graduation working on a Children’s rights project

for poor kids.”

Facts are :

Hillary interned with Bob Truehaft, the head of the California Communist

Party.  She met Bob when he represented the Panthers and traveled all the way to San Francisco to take an internship with him.

Bill says  :

“Hillary could have written her own job ticket, but she turned down all the lucrative job offers.”

Facts are :

She flunked the D.C. bar exam, ‘Yes’, flunked it, it is a matter of record, and

only passed the Arkansas bar.  She had no job offers in Arkansas, ‘None’,

and only got hired by the University of Arkansas Law School at Fayetteville

because Bill was already teaching there.  She did not join the prestigious

Rose Law Firm until Bill became Arkansas Attorney General and was made a partner only after he was elected Arkansas Governor.

Bill says  :

“President Carter appointed Hillary to the Legal Services Board of Directors and

she became its Chairman.”

Facts are :

The appointment was in exchange for Bill’s support for Carter in his 1980 primary against Ted Kennedy.  Hillary then became chairman in a coup in which she won a majority away from Carter’s choice to be chairman.

Bill says:

“She served on the board of the Arkansas Children’s Hospital.”

Facts are:

Yes she did.  But her main board activity, not mentioned by Bill, was to sit on the Wal-Mart Board of Directors, for a substantial fee.  She was silent about their labor and health care practices.

Bill says  :

“Hillary didn’t succeed at getting health care for all Americans in 1994 but she kept working at it and helped to create the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) that provides five million children with health insurance.”

Facts are :

Hillary had nothing to do with creating CHIP.  It was included in the budget deal between Clinton and Republican Majority Leader Senator Trent Lott.  I know; I helped to negotiate the deal.  The money came half from the budget deal and half from the Attorney Generals’ tobacco settlement.  Hillary had nothing to do with either source of funds.

Bill says:

“Hillary was the face of America all over the World.”    (LOL)

Imperfect Proposal ad May 31&June 1

Facts are:

Her visits were part of a program to get her out of town so that Bill would not appear weak by feeding stories that Hillary was running the White House. Her visits abroad were entirely touristic and symbolic and there was no substantive diplomacy on any of them.

Bill says  :

“Hillary was an excellent Senator who kept fighting for Children’s and Women’s

issues.”

Facts are :

Other than totally meaningless legislation like changing the names on courthouses and post offices, she has passed only four substantive pieces of legislation.  One set up a national park in Puerto Rico.  A second provided respite care for family members helping their relatives through Alzheimer’s or other conditions.  And two were routine bills to aid 911 victims and responders which were sponsored by the entire N.Y. delegation.  Presently she is trying to have the US memorialize Woodstock.

Here is what bothers me more than anything else about Hillary Clinton.  She has

done everything possible to weaken the President and our Country (that’s you and me) when it comes to the ‘War on Terror’.

1.She wants to close GITMO and move the combatants to the USA where they would

have access to our legal system.

2.She wants to eliminate the monitoring of suspected Al Qaeda phone calls to/from

the USA.

3.She wants to grant constitutional rights to enemy combatants captured on the battlefield.

4.She wants to eliminate the monitoring of money transfers between suspected Al Qaeda cells and supporters in the USA.

5.She wants to eliminate the type of interrogation tactics used by the Military & CIA where coercion might be used when questioning known terrorists even though such tactics might save American lives.

One cannot think of a single ‘Bill’, Hillary has introduced or a single comment she has made that would tend to strengthen our Country in the ‘War on Terror’. But, one can think of a lot of comments she has made that weaken our Country and makes it a more dangerous situation for all of us.

Bottom line: She goes hand in hand with the ACLU on far too many issues where common sense is abandoned.

By Dick Morris, former political advisor to President Bill Clinton

Breaking News: Elko County Man Fugitive Arrested In Montana

Nevada Man Held In Missoula County Jail On $1.5 Million Bond for Child Sex Charges

ANTHONY-MAUSTIONNIO

50 year-old Anthony Maustionnio held in Missoula Couty Jail On $1.5 Million Bond for Child Sex Charges (photo credit Missoula Sheriff’s Office)

50 year-old Anthony Maustionnio is being held in the Missoula County Jail on a $1.5 million fugitive warrant out of Elko County, Nevada.

Detective Jim Carpenter of the Elko County Sheriff’s Office asked Elko County Justice of the Peace Mason Simmons to issue the warrant that includes nine separate charges of sexual abuse of a minor child.

The charges listed go back and forth between six counts of ‘sexual assault on a child under 14 years’ and three counts of ‘lewdness with a child under 14 years’. All are felonies under State of Nevada statutes.

At his appearance in Missoula Justice Court, May 24th, Maustionnio told Judge Karen Orzech that he understood the charges against him and the possible penalties, and that he waived extradition, meaning he agreed to be transported back to Nevada. Judge Orzech noted that Maustionnio has appeared in Missoula City Court earlier in the day to hear charges of marijuana possession, and that sentencing on those charges had been suspended.

Orzech set a date of June 20 as a deadline to ensure that Maustionnio would be transported back to Nevada to face charge. Detective Carpenter is continuing the investigation.

Nevadans For State Gun Rights And NV Republican Party Includes Resolution To Vote No On Ballot Question 1

Posted on 24 May 2016 by Howard Copelan

Guns Control srory

The Nevada Republican Party affirmed their support for the Second Amendment at the Republican Convention last weekend where delegates voted to include an opposition to Question 1 on the ballot, referred to as “universal background checks.” A delegate and member of Nevadans for State Gun Rights advocated for the inclusion of the resolution, which declares Question 1 to be “a dishonest, deceptive, and unacceptable infringement on the individual right to keep and bear arms.” The motion passed unanimously.

Cocktail Waitresses 5:12 & 5:19:16

“We are proud the Nevada GOP is on the same page with us in opposition to Question 1,” said Don Turner, President of Nevadans for State Gun Rights. “This resolution positions us one step closer to defeating this unconstitutional ballot measure in November.”

Turner says that some people he has spoken with see no problem with Question 1, but that they aren’t aware of the details of the complexity of the measure, as it isn’t about background checks. His hope is that with the inclusion of this resolution in the Nevada Republican Party Platform, more people will begin to see the specifics of Question 1 and recognize how it will disrupt their individual rights rather than promote safety.

WREC NextDollar Ad

“If passed, Question 1 will be entirely unenforceable,” Turner said. “This law will only serve to criminalize law-abiding citizens and will do nothing to deter criminal activity. We should call it what it is: a federal gun registry.”

Nevadans for Background Checks, a group advocating for the passage of Question 1, position themselves on a platform for public safety disguised as “universal background checks.” This is an unrealistic platform, according to Turner, who advocates for safety measures through proper gun training rather than unreasonable gun registration. As Turner puts it, Question 1 cannot prevent criminals from committing crime, and the only people who will be prosecuted are those citizens who will become criminals under the new law.

The Elko County Art Club annually sponsors an art scholarship competition.  In the past they have given three scholarships, but were only able to sponsor two this year.  For nine out of the past ten years one or two of our West Wendover student artists have won the scholarship.  This year is no exception, we are proud to say that McKenna Bair is one of the winners.  She is a senior who says that she has been drawing as long as she can remember.  One of her future goals is to go to college to study to be an art teacher.
