Two potential routes, following existing highway corridors, are proposed north of I-80, one from western Nevada and the other from Central Nevada. The western Nevada route would follow US 395 through California and Oregon to SR 20 in Oregon, then along SR 20, US 97, I-84, and I-5 to Canada. The central Nevada route would follow US 95 through Oregon and Idaho to I-84, then along I-84, I-82, I-90, and I-5 to Canada. The central Nevada route would bring I-11 through Winnemucca and Humboldt County.

The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) is still in the planning phase of I-11 and is years away from becoming a reality but that’s not stopping the Humboldt County Commission from getting the word out that the county wants the corridor to come through the area. The commission approved a request by Humboldt County Manager Dave Mendiola for a website specific to I-11 “with the intention of promoting the north corridor from Interstate 80 through Winnemucca” and to Idaho via US Highway 95.

  • County helps future homebuyers with PABC funds
    Home ownership is an American dream for most people, but for many owning a home is just that — a dream.

The total amount consigned to NRHA was $475,845.90. The bond money will be used to fund its Home At Last Program. Continue this story

  • Novelist Terry Pratchett said, “It is important that we know where we come from, because if you do not know where you come from, then you don't know where you are, and if you don't know where you are, you don't know where you're going.

  • The goals were one thing, the celebrations another.
    The U.S. women’s national team faced criticism following its record-breaking 13-0 rout of Thailand on Tuesday night. The win set a World Cup record for goals and margin of victory. Alex Morgan alone had five goals, matching the most in one game in tournament history.
    But there were questions about whether the Americans should have celebrated goals once the game was well in hand. Were the three-time World Cup champions being unsportsmanlike, or merely sending a message to the rest of the field?

  • Winnemucca junior all-stars getting ready for District 3 Tournament in Fernley
    Fernley is hosting the three-team Junior Little League District 3 all-star tournament that gets underway starting on June 16. 
    The Juniors are age 13-15, and the Little League Board and coaches select the players and the coach.
    Jon Brooks coached the  Winnemucca Blue this season and he is the coaching the all-stars for the third consecutive season.
    “I would like to go in and win a couple of games, but I don’t want to put too many expectations on these boys because we have a lot of first year all-stars,” Brooks said. “Walker River and Fernley usually bring some pretty good ball clubs to tournaments like this, so it is going to be tough. I am hoping for some good quality play and some learning opportunities for these boys and that we have a good time.”
