Letters to the Editor
July / August 2014 Issue
I love Nevada Magazine, although I would truly appreciate the stories telling of the lives, struggles, cultures, and rich history of the Native American Indians such as the Shoshone, Paiute, and Washoe Indian tribes here in our state of Nevada, as they represent a very important part of our state.
The stories of the Shoshone, Paiute, and Washoe and other bands of native American Indian tribes which live in or lived in Nevada are a vital part of Nevada.

Love this magazine. Thank you very much for great Nevada stories. Would love to see more wild horse articles.
You guys have sure made a great change to the magazine website. It looks terrific and informative as always. Nice use of white space, fonts, pix, the whole enchilada. I just read the letters of the editor, and they are right on the money.
Please pass along kudos from me to the staff.

I am afraid that the story about Herman the World’s Biggest Steer (“On the Road to Cowboy Poetry” May/June 2014) was a lot of “bull” as anyone can clearly see the statue is “udderly” female!

Just got my May/ June issue of your magazine. I wait every two months for it to come, and really enjoy reading it cover to cover. Had a good laugh while looking at the cow photo on page 23. I thought everyone could tell a bull from a cow. That animal is definitely not a bull. Bulls don’t give milk. Thanks for the laugh, and your great magazine.

BEHIND THE BOVINE
Sarah Ning missed the history story of the Holy Cow and the man with two great obsessions – animals and old Nevada. Jim Marsh built the Longstreet Inn and Casino in 1995, and named for a living legend who had moved to the Amargosa Valley about 100 years earlier. He was supposedly related to General Longstreet, and fought in the Civil War prior to his arrival in Nevada in the 1880s. Jim Marsh deserves notice by Nevada Magazine. He purchased the Santa Fe Saloon in Goldfield in 1976. He purchased property in Tonopah, Belmont, Manhattan, and Pioche. His passion for history means real jobs in rural Nevada. He felt moved to rescue Holy Cow after her 10 years of service atop the Holy Cow Cafe and Brewery on the corner of Sahara and the Strip. He moved her to his Amargosa casino property in 2002. His famous steer was born in 2004 and died July 25, 2013. Along the way, he greeted thousands of visitors. I like your magazine.
