A Letter from the Publisher Why do I love Winnemucca, NV? It’s simple... the people and the enjoyment that comes from them being so proud of their community. I was asked to take part in their 100 year Rodeo and to ride in their annual Labor Day Parade. Over the few days I met with many of the town’s people, business owners and community leaders... what a great time. The Model T Casino was and still is my main HQ when in town for my RVing, Hotel Room and dining all in one location, what an outstanding group of professionals. From my point of view... the Humboldt Museum is a must.. enjoy visiting their exhibits on North Central Nevada history in a modern brick building & several historical buildings. Winnemucca is the only incorporated city in and is the county seat of Humboldt County, Nevada, United States. As of the 2010 census, the city had a total population of 7,396, up 3.1 percent from the 2000 census figure of 7,174. Interstate 80 passes through the city, where it meets U.S. Route 95.

M. KAMERON HAWKINS for Lieutenant Governor of Nevada


My fellow Nevadans, I am running for Lieutenant Governor of Nevada in 2022. When I was a young man, I proudly served in the U.S. Navy from 1983 - 1997 where my pride as a patriot became enhanced. I received an Honorable Discharge after my first hitch. I then volunteered for the Navy Reserves and joined a priority one unit “NCHB14” until I became a Disabled Veteran at the rank of BM1/E6. The best way for me to serve our country today is as your Lieutenant Governor of Nevada. Being a proud Republican with many years as a businessman on local, national and international platforms has allowed me to navigate and see first-hand as to how the world works in business and in politics. My strengths will allow Nevadans to leverage my applied knowledge towards the combined vision that we all seek for a greater Nevada. Nevada’s Economic Development, Green Friendly and Global Supporter along with focus on how we are becoming a worldwide Adventure Destination Location are a few of the topics I will enhance as your Lieutenant Governor of Nevada. For more information, please visit www.VoteForHawkins.com Thank you, M. Kameron Hawkins “Proud American, Republican, Veteran, and Adventurer.”

Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge The Amargosa Valley is the valley through which the Amargosa River flows south, in Nye County, southwestern Nevada and Inyo County in the state of California. The south end is alternately called the “Amargosa River Valley’” or the “Tecopa Valley.” Its northernmost point is just outside of Beatty, Nevada and southernmost is Tecopa, California, where the Amargosa River enters into the Amargosa Canyon that’s apart of the Great Basin area. The Amargosa Valley (“the Valley”) is located within the Basin and Range Province (“the Province”) which is characterized by abrupt changes in elevation, alternating between narrow faulted mountain chains and flat arid valleys or basins. As is typical of the Province, the Valley is long from north to south and narrow from east to west. It lies to the east of Death Valley, separated from it by the Amargosa Range and Funeral Mountains.

It is not known when the first humans settled in the Amargosa Desert. Ancient campsites have been found that date back at least 10,000 years, to the end of the last ice age. Recent examination of archaeological remains in the valley implies more extensive use by aboriginal peoples than had been previously estimated. Pottery and other artifacts have been found that date back from approximately 1000 A.D. to even earlier times. During the nineteenth century, two groups of Native Americans occupied the Amargosa Valley: the Southern Paiute and the Western Shoshone. Both were extremely

adept at extracting a living from their marginal environment, subsisting on wild plant foods and supplemented by wild game. Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge is a protected wildlife refuge located in the Amargosa Valley of southern Nye County, in southwestern Nevada. It is directly east of Death Valley National Park, and is 90 miles West-Northwest of Las Vegas.

Where Memories are Made The Chapel at Longstreet is set in a serene location surrounded by an oasis of waterfalls, ponds, and wild life. Located only two miles from the Ash Meadows national refuge and seven miles from the California entrance to Death Valley, The Chapel at Longstreet is a nondenominational event space available for weddings, baptisms, memorials, and church services. Walk into our Amargosa Valley chapel and take a trip back in time. The stained-glass windows and wooden pews are straight from the 1800s and the view of the mountain ranges will take your breath away. Our chapel near death valley is a replica of a Catholic church built in 1864 in the mining town of Belmont, Nevada. Jim Marsh, owner of Longstreet Inn, designed and built this quaint chapel to honor the historic era of mining in Nevada. Reception facilities are available within the hotel. Chapel reservations are made by calling the Longstreet Inn & Casino at (775) 372-1777. We provide the nondenominational officiant, and you don’t have to worry about a waiting period. In Nevada, you can receive a marriage license the same day you apply for it. www.longstreetcasino.com/wedding-chapel.htm



BOULDER CITY, NV Boulder City is a city in Clark County, Nevada, United States. It is approximately 26 miles (42 km) southeast of Las Vegas. As of the 2010 census, the population of Boulder City was 15,023. The city took its name from Boulder Canyon and known worldwide as the Home of Hoover Dam. Boulder City is one of only two places in Nevada that prohibits gambling, the other being the town of Panaca. The land upon which Boulder City was founded was a harsh, desert environment. Its sole reason for existence was the need to house workers contracted to build the Hoover Dam on the Colorado River (known commonly as Boulder Dam from 1933 to 1947, when it was officially renamed Hoover Dam by a joint resolution of Congress). Men hoping for work on the dam project had begun settling along the river in tents soon after the precise site for the dam had been chosen by the Bureau of Reclamation in 1930. Their ramshackle edifices were collectively known as “Ragtown�. Boulder City was originally built in 1931 by the Bureau of Reclamation and Six Companies, Inc. as housing for workers who were building the Hoover Dam. The sheer scale of the dam and duration of the project required the Bureau of Reclamation to consider the construction of a semipermanent town rather than a temporary arrangement. Boulder City was exceptionally rare as an example of a town fully planned under government supervision. This is unlike 19th century privately funded company town examples found in the United Kingdom, such as Port Sunlight, or in the United States, such as Pullman, Chicago.


Boulder City, “Nevada’s Best Small Town for Antiquing”

Did you know a treasure hunt awaits visitors between Las Vegas and Hoover Dam? Blue dots locate a variety of vintage stores in Boulder City’s historic downtown district, centered around the Boulder Dam Museum. A few more, along with other specialty shops, pepper the approach to the town. Red dots indicate unique eatery options, rounding out the town as a destination to “Discover, Explore & Unwind”.

The publication was instrumental in promoting the Boulder City Chamber Spring Jamboree’s newly established Antiques in the Park as “the Largest

Antique Show in Southern Nevada”. Situated at the front, Dunn’s colorful Pedal Car Show was discovered by a film crew from HISTORY channel and featured on local Rick Dale’s show, American Restoration. Several follow-up episodes were filmed at the shop bringing national attention to the Back in Thyme Antiques, at 524 Nevada Way, town. was established first, by Glena Dunn in 2001.

It is an apothecary-styled return to her original mix of rustic antiques and seasonal décor, which she and her customers missed after the first shop evolved into specialties. The new shop goes all out for every season, and especially Christmas holidays!

To bring traffiic to her stores, a regional antiques guide was needed, so Dunn purchased the Southern Nevada edition of The Country Register, adding a map guide...now people finding one store could find them all. The original shop focuses on historical relics from the early years of the dam and Boulder City itself, including colorfully swirled Desert Sands Pottery. It is known for the largest selection of authentic old Native American jewelry in the state and educates on how to avoid fakery. Not to mention the over 50 rare original children’s pedal cars (some dating back to the turn-of-the-century) that perch atop the showcases. On your next trip to Las Vegas, be sure to plan on visiting Boulder City as a destination or a side excursion on your way to see the Hoover Dam. 26

EUREKA, NV John F. Biale Sr. Veterans Memorial Park The quaint mining town of Eureka will soon have a park on Highway 50, recognizing service members of our Armed Forces of the United States. Construction is underway for the John F. Biale Sr. Veterans Memorial Park. The park will be constructed by local contractors and associates and overseen and managed by the Veterans of Foreign War, Eureka Post 8194. VFW Post Quartermaster Ralph Cuda said, “We are grateful to the Biale Family for donating this beautiful section of land, to build a park honoring all veterans.” Ruth Biale donated the property in 2017 to the local VFW, in memory of her husband, the namesake of the park. The park contains many original trees, planted by the Biale family, when they lived in Eureka. Local Eureka resident Cindy Adams was instrumental in overseeing the land acquisition and the initial park design. Currently, site surveys have been performed; architectural and conceptual drawings were completed by GML Architects of Reno; benches and a storage shed have been purchased, and the property is being leveled and compacted to begin pouring concrete.

VFW Post Commander Elden Allred says “I am excited to see the project take shape. We would like to thank all of the contributors, both businesses and individuals, who have helped to make our vision a reality.” Generous donations have been received by the Elko Mining Group, the Eureka County Recreation Board, and by local community members. A website is currently under construction for online donations and project information, and we can be contacted us at EurekaMemorialPark@gmail.com.

The VFW member names from right to lefr are Ralph Cuda, Mike Sharkozy, Rex Moore, Jim Ithurralde, Kevin Buchanan andElden Allred. 29


Goldfield is an unincorporated community and the county seat of Esmeralda County, Nevada. It is a census-designated place, with a resident population just under 300 at the 2010 census, down from 440 in 2000. Goldfield is located 247 miles (398 km) southeast of Carson City, along U.S. Route 95. Goldfield was a boomtown in the first decade of the 20th century due to the discovery of gold – between 1903 and 1940, Goldfield’s mines produced more than $86 million at then-current prices. Much of the town was destroyed by a fire in 1923, although several buildings survived and remain today, notably the Goldfield Hotel, the Consolidated Mines Building (the communications center of the town until 1963), and the schoolhouse. Gold exploration continues in and around the town today. The community was named for deposits of gold near the original town site. Gold was discovered at Goldfield in 1902, its year of inception. By 1904, the Goldfield district produced about 800 tons of ore, valued at $2,300,000, 30% of the state’s production that year. This remarkable production caused Goldfield to grow rapidly, and it soon became the largest town in the state with about 20,000 people.

One prominent, or notorious, early Goldfield resident was George Graham Rice, a former check forger, newspaperman, and racetrack tipster, turned mining stock promoter. The collapse of his Sullivan Trust Company and its associated mining stocks caused the failure of the Goldfield State Bank in 1907. Rice quickly left Goldfield, but continued to promote mining shares for another quarter-century. Another prominent resident from 1906 was George Wingfield, one of Nevada’s entrepreneurs, who built the Goldfield Hotel. In collaboration with his partner George S. Nixon (who was to become a US senator in 1904), Wingfield started in Belmont, Nevada in 1901, and saw the potential of Goldfield after mining at Tonopah, 27 miles (43 km) north, took off. George S. Nixon and Wingfield made huge fortunes in Goldfield by forming the Goldfield Consolidated Mining Company. By 1906, they were worth $30 million. Wingfield moved to Reno soon after realizing his great wealth could be spread across northern Nevada and Northern California. Between 1903 and 1918, mining in the two towns grew from $2.8 million to $48.6 million. 30

Wyatt and Virgil Earp came to Goldfield in 1904. Virgil was hired as a Goldfield deputy sheriff in January 1905. In April, he contracted pneumonia and, after six months of illness, he died on October 18, 1905. Wyatt Earp left Goldfield shortly afterward. Goldfield reached a peak population around 20,000 people in 1906 and hosted a lightweight boxing championship match between Joe Gans and Oscar “Battling” Nelson. In addition to the mines, Goldfield was home to large reduction works. The gold output in 1907 was over $8.4 million, the year in which the town became the county seat; in 1908, output was about $4,880,000. In the early 1900s, Consolidated Mining dug an adit at Alkali, Nevada to deliver water 10 miles (16 km) to the 100-stamp Combination Mill near Goldfield. By the 1910 census, its population had declined to 4,838. Part of the problem was the increasing cost of pumping brine out of the diggings, making them uneconomic. By 1912, ore production had dropped to $5 million, and the largest mining company left town in 1919. In 1923, a fire caused by a moonshine still explosion destroyed most of the town’s flammable buildings. Some brick and stone buildings from before the fire remain, including the hotel and the high school.

Behind the Scenes America Matters Media by Eddie Floydd, Founder Article Part 2 of 2 This lasted until legal issues and the demise of the Mall created a 2 ½ year leave of absence, which ended in 2010, and I started the whole process again from nothing. Fortunately everyone who knew the truth about the situation rallied behind the new Company which is now located in the Reno Town Mall, owned by Rob Rothe and Family. We now have been located there for going on 9 years and have an even brighter future than ever enjoyed in the past. The Corporate name changed from Nevada Matters Inc., a Nevada Corporation to World Matters Inc. with over 40 weekly talk shows, with some already airing around the World in various languages, and more in the planning stages. Thanks to Mr Craig Moss, our Chief Engineer in the past, and a member, like myself of the Nevada Broadcaster’s

Hall of Fame, we now enjoy a “State of the Art Studio”, complete with an auditorium for listeners as well as viewers, due to the fact that now most of our shows are both audio and video complete and sent to many media platforms. None of this would be possible were it not for Kelly Rush, C.E.O., who I selected to take my place in hopes to someday retire, as well as Kristian Meyer, C.O.O. and Chief Engineer, who stepped in when Mr Moss was offered an opportunity of a lifetime by a friend and competitor. Both Kelly and Kristian have steered the Media Company in a New Direction so that instead of being number one in Community Radio, we are now involved with what I consider to be one of the fastest growing Media Platforms in the Nation, if not the World. We are now located at 4001 South Virginia, Studio 7, Reno, Nevada, The Reno Town Mall, and our phone number is till the same after 35 years of being in business, 775-827-8900. People are invited to join in the conversation on almost all of the talk shows, from the audience or


by calling our 844-790-8255 telephone number, toll free from anywhere in the World. Besides the cooperation of Lotus Radio here in Northern Nevada, we are now heard on Nevada Talk Radio affiliated with U.S.A. Radio Network. I am also pleased to say that we recently began sending the videos on a couple our shows, including my new America Matters with Eddie Floyd to the A.U.N. Television Network as well. Almost all of our shows can be viewed on Facebook, CD BABY, and YouTube, just to name a few of the platforms we now use, thanks to the creation of our new media outlets by Kelly and Kristian, who are in studio every workday of the week. Our Sponsors and Advertisers are now enjoying the benefits of all these formats once they become part of the America Matters Media Family. If you would like more information about our company, either Stop by the Mall, or call me personally at 775-384-4444. You all Matter to me, just like America Matters to us all.

VIRGINIA CITY, NV Virginia City, a National Historic Landmark District, draws more than 2 million visitors per year. It has numerous historic properties that are separately listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Virginia City is a census-designated place (CDP) that is the county seat of Storey County, Nevada, and the largest community in the county. Virginia City developed as a boomtown with the 1859 discovery of the Comstock Lode, the first major silver deposit discovery in the United States, with numerous mines opening. The population peaked in the mid-1870s, with an estimated 25,000 residents when San Francisco’s population was estimated at 150,000 and grow on the average of close to 100,000 every 10 year until 1900. The mines’ output declined after 1878, and the population declined as a result. As of the 2010 Census, the population of Virginia City was about 855, and that of Storey County was 4,000 plus 1 Mr. M. Kameron Hawkins became a resident in 2020. Virginia City’s silver ore discoveries were not part of the California Gold Rush, which occurred 10 years before. At the time of the discovery of the Comstock Lode, silver was considered the monetary equal of gold, and all production was purchased by the federal government for use in coinage. In 1873, silver was demonetized by the government, in large part due to the flood of silver into international markets from the silver mines of Virginia City. Like many cities and towns in Nevada, Virginia City was a mining boomtown; it developed virtually overnight as a result of miners rushing to the Comstock Lode silver strike of 1859. But, Virginia City far surpassed all others for its peak of population, technological advancements developed there, and for providing the population base upon which Nevada qualified for statehood. The riches of the Comstock Lode inspired men to hunt for silver mines throughout Nevada and other parts of the American West.

Nevada Ghost Town Storyteller The following novels I have written you should enjoy. More novels are on the way! Oh! Where are my manners? Allow me to introduce myself, won’t you? My name is Gary Buckley. My family and I moved to Nevada in 1972, and fell in love with this wonderful, fascinating state, becoming intrigued with its past. Deciding to put my pen to use, I wrote about its history, its people, its towns, in which they lived. My novel, “Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust,” is a fictitious, paranormal novel about a woman who enters different paranormal dimensions against her will, time traveling to non-fictitious locations, where people have been murdered, killed and executed. What started this saga (with more novels to come) in the historical novel titled, “The Petals of Virginia,” as you join Virginia O’Malley on nothing short of an adventure, as we leave this present day on a journey to explore the past. Traveling back in time, if you will, delving through these pages as we reach out together, trying to grasp what it was like to live in that exciting mining town, christened Virginia City, Nevada, known as “The Richest Place on Earth!” This book you hold in your hands, reveals hidden secrets of her glory days forgotten. Some of the material is fiction, while some being non-fiction, and yet some historically based that is gently blended with the paranormal. Allow “The Petals of Virginia” to envelop you with love, captivating your soul, filling your heart with an innocence that will leave you

A few words from Hewett: The grazing lands in Nevada are in congressional acts and case law. Congress officially adopted a split-estate land disposal policy for the West when it enacted the Survey Act of 1853. The grazing lands in Nevada are in congressional acts and case law. Congress officially adopted a split-estate land disposal policy for the West when it enacted the Survey Act of 1853. This Act granted to residents of settlements on or near mineral lands the “right of occupation and cultivation only”. Prior to the 1853 Act it was unlawful to settle on the “mineral lands” or to claim more than 320 acres of land under the agricultural land laws (Oregon Donation Act 1850, Desert Land Act 1877, Forest Reserve Act 1891). These policies changed with the acquisition of the Western territories (1845 Texas, 1846 Pacific Northwest, 1848 Guadalupe Hidalgo, 1853 Gadsden treaty) see Rector v Gibbons 1884.

and no officer of the land department can take that right away (Ballinger v Frost 1910).. “The legislative grant was the highest muniment of title” and was more powerful than a patent (Whitney v Morrow 1885)...

“Whitney v Morrow 1885”, each stockwater site was a “location” under the mineral land laws. Under Section 13 of the Mineral Land Act of 1870, 5 years of occupation and development earned the locator “the right to a patent”. The right to a patent once earned is equivalent to a patent issued

March 3, 1875 Congress made “grazing” a cultural land practice equivalent to “cultivation” on “agricultural” land and “mining” on “mineral “ land. From that day forward you could acquire title to agricultural land under the Homestead and Preemption laws by “grazing” instead of “cultivation”.

Sarah Winnemucca was born in 1844 near Humboldt Lake, Nevada, into an influential Paiute family who led their community in pursuing friendly relations with the arriving groups of Anglo-American settlers. She was sent to study in a Catholic school in Santa Clara, California. When the Paiute War erupted between the Pyramid Lake Paiute and the settlers, including some who were friends of the Winnemucca family, Sarah and some of her family traveled to San Francisco and Virginia City to escape the fighting. They made a living performing onstage as “A Paiute Royal Family.” In 1865, while the Winnemucca family was away, their band was attacked by the US cavalry, who killed 29 Paiutes, including Sarah’s mother and several members of her extended family. Subsequently, Winnemucca became an advocate for the rights of Native Americans, traveling across the US to tell Anglo-Americans about the plight of her people. When the Paiute were interned in a concentration camp at Yakima, Washington after the Bannock War, she traveled to Washington, D.C. to lobby Congress and the executive branch for their release. She also served US forces as a messenger, interpreter, and guide, and as a teacher for imprisoned Native Americans. Winnemucca published Life Among the Paiutes: Their Wrongs and Claims (1884), a book that is both a memoir and history of her people during their first 40 years of contact with European Americans. It is considered the “first known autobiography written by a Native American woman.” Anthropologist Omer Stewart described it as “one of the first and one of the most enduring ethnohistorical books written by an American Indian,” frequently cited by scholars. Following the publication of the book, Winnemucca toured the Eastern United States, giving lectures about her people in New England, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C. She returned to the West, founding a private school for Native American children in Lovelock, Nevada. Since the late 20th century, scholars have paid renewed attention to Winnemucca for her accomplishments. In 1993, she was inducted posthumously into the Nevada Writers Hall of Fame. In 2005, the state of Nevada contributed a statue of her by sculptor Benjamin Victor to the National Statuary Hall Collection in the U.S. Capitol. Winnemucca’s legacy has been controversial. Some biographers have wished to remember her primarily for her activism and social work to better the conditions for her people, while others have criticized her for her tendency to exaggerate her social status among the Paiute. Among the Paiute, her assistance to the US military at a time when they were at war with the Paiute has been criticized, as has her advocacy for assimilation of Natives to Anglo-American culture. But the Paiute have also recognized her social work and activism for indigenous rights. At the time of her birth, Northern Paiutes and Washos were the sole inhabitants of the land that is now western Nevada. Her grandfather, Chief Truckee, welcomed the arrival of his “white brothers” and helped General John C. Fremont in the Bear War against Mexican control of California. However, her father, Chief Winnemucca, did not trust the white people and cautioned his own people to keep their distance. Perhaps hearing these opposite viewpoints became a portent of her life, which was spent attempting to interpret the two cultures to each other. Sarah was first introduced to white people at age six when her grandfather insisted she go with him to California. She was initially frightened, but did like such luxuries as beds, chairs, brightly colored dishes and the food she was served. When she was thirteen, her grandfather had arranged for Sarah and her sister to become members of Major Ormsby’s household at Mormon Station, now Genoa, Nevada. By the time she was fourteen, she had acquired five languages, three Indian dialects, English and Spanish.

Both times that she left her tribe, Sarah returned following an incident of white people treating her tribe poorly. Sarah’s final visit in the white culture at age sixteen fulfilled her grandfather’s deathbed request that she and her sister Elma be educated in a convent school at San Jose, California. The two girls were never officially admitted to the school, but during their few weeks there, she continued to acquire more knowledge and experience in the new culture. As Sarah reached maturity, the white emigration west continued to encroach on Paiute territory, and eventually, whites insisted on moving all Indians onto reservations, first the Pyramid Lake Reservation in Nevada, then the Malheur Indian Reservation in Oregon, and finally to Yakima, Washington. The days of hunting and gathering freely had ended for her tribe. In 1871, at the age of twenty-seven, Sarah began working as an interpreter for the Bureau of Indian Affairs at Fort McDermitt on the Oregon border. During this time, she married Lt. E. C. Bartlett but left him within a year because of his intemperance. She later married an Indian husband, but left him for his gross abuse of her. In 1872, Sarah was with her people on the Malheur Reservation in Oregon where Indian Agent Samuel Parrish was treating everyone fairly. However, he was replaced with a less reliable agent, and as problems mounted on the reservations, Sarah prepared to travel to Washington, D.C. to speak out on behalf of her people, a trip that was interrupted while she aided U.S. troops in the Bannock war of 1878. Sarah offered her services to the Army as an interpreter and scout. She saved her father, whose lodge had been surrounded by hostile Indians, by traveling without sleep over 200 miles in 48 hours over treacherous Idaho terrain. In January, 1880, she pleaded the Indian’s cause in Washington, D.C. before Secretary of the Interior Carl Schurz and President Rutherford B. Hayes. Eventually, Sarah did receive promises of improvements for her people, which were later broken by the government. Despite her advocacy for her people, the broken promises caused them to distrust her. Still, she dedicated the remainder of her life to her work, giving more than 400 speeches to gain support for the Paiutes. Many of her speeches were given on the East Coast through the support of Elizabeth Peabody and Mary Peabody Mann. She also was dedicated to teaching school to Paiute children and opened a school for Indian children called “Peabody’s Institute” near Lovelock, Nevada. When her husband, at that time Lt. L. H. Hopkins, died of tuberculosis and the school was closed, Sarah moved to Montana to spend her last days with her sister Elma. Court proceedings from a couple of Sarah Winnemucca’s run-ins with the law. The 1875 incident occurred at the Winnemucca Hotel, but does not name the person she fought. The 1880 incident occurred after she threatened to cram the lies of the Silver State Newspaper editor down this throat with a bowie knife.
