November – December 2018
HIGHLIGHTS IN THIS ISSUE
Along with a chat with the governor, this issue covers a wide range of subjects. Walker River State Recreation Area opened this fall, and we’ve got a look at our newest state park on page 28. On page 56, we talk to Melvin Dummar. We last wrote about Melvin in 1981, and while the story of Howard Hughes and the Mormon Will has faded from the headlines, it’s still a fascinating look at how fortunes can turn into misfortune.
On page 64, we talk to some of Nevada’s game wardens, and that’s something we hadn’t done before. Who these officers are, what their jobs entail, and how they help protect our wildlife resources might just surprise some. We’re ending our yearlong coverage for Nevada’s railroads with a look at one of the railcars at the Nevada State Railroad Museum in Carson City that played a part in the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad; read about Coach 17 on page 72. And finally, on page 38, we present our 2018 Nevada Gift Guide full of great ideas for all the Nevada lovers on your holiday gift list.
