The question is whether Nevada Democrats understand the message that Virginia voters sent.
Johntown was a rough-and-tumble wannabe town that grew up along Gold Canyon.
“For most of the 20th century, we led the world by a significant margin because we invested in our people.

Father Hyacithe’s bowling saloon is a very neat and cleverly conducted institution. We dropped in there yesterday. Never an neater bar, never a more cleanly kept place; never a more cheery landlord.
