Ken was off with his son Kevin on his slightly delayed (by 60 years or so) trip to Yellowstone National Park. It was either marry Aggie or go to Yellowstone. He made the right choice. He should be back now to tell us what a great time he had. Meantime, I'll take a shot at filling in this month.
The Primaries have come and gone and it would seem the Tea Party movement has some staying power.
They certainly had more wins than losses nationwide including a big one here in Nevada. Of
course the real test will come in November, won't it?
A quick note on Social Security: It's going all electronic starting March 1, 2013. I'm guessing just about all of you are already doing direct deposit and even if you're still getting a check every month you have over two and a half years to get ready so just consider this a. "heads up."
Did you know that mining falls into the same category as schools, roads, utilities et al when it comes to Eminent Domain rights? It sure came as news to me. A mining corporation has the, right under current statute to take someone's land to get to the minerals underneath it. Can you say 'Kelo vs. New London'? Or “Pappas vs. City of Las Vegas”? Fortunately it's a statute and the legislature could take "mining, smelting and related activities" out of NRS 37 regardless of any rationales the industry may throw out there.
We put PISTOL (PEOPLE'S INITIATIVE TO STOP THE TAKING OF OUR LAND) into the State Constitution
specifically to stop this kind of nonsense and it certainly should take precedent and override
the statute in any court of law in Nevada.
Hope everyone is having a great summer and that you'll all come to our meetings. It would be great to see you.
