County Commission puts Hatred of city over Public Safety; City calls County's bluff

The White Pine County Commission hates the City of Ely.  For two years they have called for the disincorporation of the City.  Now, after taking six months of an interim Interlocal Agreement for Fire protection designed to come up with a permanent agreement and letting it expire, the City told it's Fire Department not to respond as a first responder outside the city limits of Ely.  The lack of action by the County have, in effect, put the City in a no-win situation, and at the same time put the people who live south of Ely in jeopardy.

County Commission Voters in White Pine are facts.

I hope you received your sample ballot over the weekend for the upcoming primary election.  You are going to have to dig deeply and do your own research, because there will not be any candidate forums prior to the June 14 election.  This is not a big surprise.  Because the favored candidates of those who control our local publication would have a very hard time getting support, particularly from voters of the City of Ely.  But then, facts never get in the way of a bunch of Good Old Boys....

"Foreign Bride" websites not Human Trafficking but Human Fleecing

Back in 2011 I became increasingly frustrated with a number of late night commercials on ESPN promoting a Russian Dating website.  Tiring already of the pending coronation of King Obama II, I decided to embark on a definitely not-political piece.  What I found was stunning.  And life changing.
