Three Things You Need to Know Today

  • Stay at Home Because You Are Well Day is today. Do you feel okay? If'so, it is a good day to take off from work. According to Wellcat.com, the creators of this special day, the objective is to call in "well" to your work. It's as simple as that – but be careful. Some bosses might not appreciate your wellness!
  • Samuel Clemens, later known as Mark Twin, is born in Florida, Missouri, on this day in 1835. The literary legend has been forever tied to Nevada because he first used the pen name "Mark Twain" while traveling and writing in the Nevada Territory. He lived and worked in Unionville for a short time, too! 
  • Cats will hunt even if they’re not hungry. The University of Georgia’s KittyCam project, which outfitted 60 free-roaming pet cats with video cameras, found that only 28 percent of the prey caught was consumed. Half of the kills were simply left in situ — the rest were brought home to lucky owners.

  • Just reminiscing
    "Do you know who you are?”
    There is a country song made famous by country singer Patty Loveless, titled “You don't even know who I am.” It’s a sad story about a failed marriage, and the wife is leaving after years of marriage and raising children. If you are a country music fan, you know the words to that sad song. Here are the words for you who have no clue about this song. It’s real life in motion, in real time, happening every day somewhere. And the kids are thinking, what did I do wrong? What could I have done to keep daddy and mama together? What’s going to happen to me? My heart’s breaking.
  • Transportation
    If you could walk up to a wall put your hand out flat on it, push and it would dissolve and fall away to reveal that you have been transported to a place of your dreams, where would you end up? A long white sand beach? Hike to the top of a mountain? A bubble bath? Paris? Think big- in this dream all expenses are paid! Even souvenirs are included…
  • Ownership Verification Cards
    What is this “Owner Occupancy Verification Card” I got in the mail and why do I need to fill it out? If you own a home and especially, if you have recently purchased a home, you should have received an Owner Occupancy Verification card in the mail. Chances are, if you did not know what that was for, you tossed it in the trash.

That little card entitles you to a property tax abatement on your primary residence. Here is how it works:

Bids were received for each and every one of the 59 entries in this year’s Festival of Trees event held at the Winnemucca Convention Center Nov. 24. “That’s a first for us,” said Sunny Johnson of the Winnemucca Host Lions Club. In other years, Johnson said the club has always had several trees at the end of the evening which still needed homes. Not so on this year — every tree was taken home by someone who thought it would be just right for them.
