Mosquito Spraying
 
 
Mosquito Spraying
 
 
The City of Elko Parks Department is planning to spray for mosquitoes , early on Friday morning (June 9, 2017).  Should weather conditions require postponement of the application (must be applied in the early morning with temperatures above 50F, and with winds less than 10 M.P.H.), we have reserved the following day (6-10-2017) as a backup date.  As the insecticides to be applied are toxic to bees, we encourage any beekeepers in the area to take necessary precautions.  We will also be doing an additional application on June 14, 2017 with the following Thursday reserved as a backup.
 
Areas to be treated include the Humboldt River Corridor, Elko City Cemetery, Ruby View Golf Course, all City Parks, The Elko Regional Airport, and the Water Treatment Facility.  We also encourage everyone in the area to assist with mosquito abatement efforts by emptying any stagnant water from tires, boats, buckets, etc. as these areas are the perfect breeding ground for these pests.

Value Added Producer Grant Workshop March 1 in Reno


Grant Supports Feasibility Studies and Marketing for New Agricultural Products
(CARSON CITY, Nev.—Feb. 9, 2017)
Are you a farmer who needs funds to expand your market and increase sales? The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) will offer a workshop in Reno March 1, with information on how to apply for the Value Added Producer Grant (VAPG), which helps farmers develop new markets.


USDA Business Program Specialist Mark Williams will lead the workshop at the Natural Resources Conservation Service office, located at 1365 Corporate Blvd. in Reno, from 9 a.m. -12 p.m. on March 1.


The workshop will focus on ways that the Value Added Producer Grant (VAPG) can help agricultural producers fund new activities to process and market their existing agricultural products. For example, VAPG funds can help farmers process and market their locally grown products or organic products.  The grant can also assist with making new products, such as jam from berries, salsa from tomatoes, or wine from grapes.


The grant can be used anywhere in the state. Funding can support feasibility studies, marketing plans, or for working capital for processing or marketing value added products.  Farmers must use their own existing agricultural product to be eligible for this grant.


Contact Mark Williams for more information at (775) 887-1222 Ext. 116.

Where will you be when Silver Rain falls?

Among other awards, Silver Rain has recently been nominated for the Pulitzer Price of Best in Fiction for 2016 and Readers’ Favorite for 2017. Hailed as “a technology-inspired mystery with all the fun of a zombie-esque outbreak” by Kirkus Reviews, Silver Rain tackles topics of PTSD, acceptance vs. discrimination, and the value of self-worth. Set in a near future, a mad scientist has launched a toxin that turns the rain silver and will bring the United States to its knees. Packed with action and thrills, everyday Americans must struggle through the chaos and discover what is a stronger instinct: to survive or to find their loved ones.
