Trump Says Venezuela Is A Disaster Because Socialism Has Been ‘Faithfully Implemented’
Conservative Talk Lunch (CTL) is not meeting the 2nd Wednesday of September (September 13). So we will meet again on Wednesday, September 27.
PUC Consumer Session, Thursday, Sept 14, 6:00 pm, 1001 E. 9th (9th & Wells), Bldg. A in the County Commission Chambers
This Consumer Session is the ONLY time the PUC is required by law to provide transcripts to the Legislature. Otherwise, the body that governs the PUC never knows that we’re even a little upset. And there is plenty to be upset about.
But there’s still plenty going on…
MUST READ…IMPACTS ALL NEVADANS!
We, here in the northern part of the state just had our NVE rates adjusted recently. But the PUC has said they can file FOR ANOTHER RATE INCREASE IN JANUARY… so we are not out of the woods.
Perhaps you thought solar was going to reduce your bills! Hah! The Legislators never ASKED for the cost of all these solar/renewable bills coming before them in Cartoon City. Two Dems from Las Vegas (Spearman and Brooks) dominated the information going out in order to gain support.
One of our PUC champions, Fred Voltz from Carson was ALWAYS asking how much is it going to cost on pretty much everything the PUC or NVE was putting forth. But apparently, “you have to pass it in order to know what the cost will be.”
June 2017- NVE asked for no increase
August 2017-PUC addresses AB405- forces NVE to increase rates…about $4/mo
SEPTEMBER 2017- proposed rate going up from $12.75 to $21.00, to help pay for ALL THE SUBSIDIES for cheaper solar for solar customers!
There are THREE more bills the PUC is looking at…plan to see this proposed amount go up even more!
IF you have NO PROBLEM with your bill going up MORE stay home, otherwise, show up and let the PUC KNOW on THURSDAY! Otherwise, don’t bitch about all the increases.
NV Energy (Nevada Power Company d/b/a as NV Energy) has filed an application with the PUCN to revise general rates charged to certain classes of electric customers. The application in consolidated Docket Nos. 17-06003 and 17-06004 identifies two alternative rate structures.
The first alternative requested by NV Energy proposes no change in total annual revenue requirement, but does revise rates between some, but not all, classes of customers. Under this alternative, the average monthly single-family residential bill, including the basic service charge, does not change.
The second alternative filed by NV Energy reflects an overall annual revenue increase of $31.8 million, or 1.54 percent. The average monthly single-family residential bill, including a proposed service charge adjustment, is estimated to increase $11.13, or 8.16% under the second alternative in the South. NV Energy in the North proposes to increase the monthly residential electric service charge from $12.75 to a whopping $21.00, and to increase the consumption charge per kilowatt hour from $0.06916 to $0.07176. Based on the evidence presented in the case, the PUCN may adopt rates either higher or lower than the rates proposed by NV Energy.
A subsequent filing (Docket 17-07026) made by NV Energy in conformance with recently-passed legislation, may impact residential and small commercial rates. The PUCN may adopt rates either higher or lower than the rates proposed by NV Energy in that subsequent filing.
The consumer session is scheduled for Thursday, September 14, 2017, at 6 p.m., Bldg A in the County Commission chambers. NV Energy representatives will be present to answer questions about the filing. Representatives of the Nevada Attorney General’s Bureau of Consumer Protection (BCP) and PUCN Regulatory Operations Staff also will be present. Public comment will be limited to the contents of the application and may be limited to five minutes per speaker. Hearings on this application start on October 4, 2017.
Please come out to support both these important meetings.

1) School Board meeting, Tuesday, Sept. 12, 2:00 PM, 425 E. 9th St. (9th & Evans)
John Eppolito has been asking questions at School Board meetings for months now. He has written emails and asked questions about psychological assessments being done in Washoe schools now. There needs to be a whole bunch of us taking issue with the School Board for continuing this deleterious practice of psych. assessment, which is designed purely for the reason of being able to categorize kids and put them in “appropriate” classrooms and track them from K-12, through college and into the workforce. Here is the WCSD agenda for Thursday’s meeting.
Here are the questions John Eppolito is asking that won’t be answered:
In addition it appears they will continue to give psychological assessments (including the DESSA) to children without parental consent.
If you can’t show up, it is important to EMAIL THE BOARD MEMBERS AND ASK THEM TO ANSWER OUR QUESTIONS or ask them why they are continuing with psych assessments:

Washoe County Announcement
Free medical clinic in Reno September 29 to October 1 to provide healthcare to hundreds
Dental, vision and medical services all at no-cost to patients or taxpayers
For Immediate Release

RENO, Nevada – Remote Area Medical – RAM™, the largest free mobile medical clinic in the country helping underserved and uninsured individuals, children and families is coming to Reno, September 29- October 1. Parking for patients will be at the Washoe County Health District, 1001 E. 9th Street, Reno. Clinic parking will open at 12 a.m. midnight on Friday, September 29 for patients to begin the check-in process. Ticket distribution will start at 3 a.m. Patients will then be bussed to the clinic location at the Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows where they will be seen according to their ticket number when doors open at 6 a.m. The same process will repeat all three days. No tickets or parking will be available at the clinic location.
Remote Area Medical’s free, mobile medical clinics have been all across the country this year gaining attention from prestigious international and national media outlets such as the Washington Post, NBC News, Time Magazine, and BuzzFeed. RAM clinics reach from the backwoods of the Appalachians to the urban areas of Los Angeles and Dallas. RAM last visited Reno in 2014, serving 860 people or nearly 300 people per day in the clinic. This year organizers are hoping to break the 1,000 patient mark. “This will depend on the number of people who check in for services, but also how efficiently they work with us through the process to access care,” said Washoe County District Health Officer Kevin Dick. “But a lot also depends on the number of volunteers we get for the three clinic days. This year we hope to not only assist over 1,000 clients, but we also hope to better our 2014 number of volunteers which was 300. To do that we need another 50 or more volunteers to step forward. In addition to general volunteers, we’re seeking to bolster the number of dental and vision professionals so that we can maximize our ability to provide services in these areas.” According to Dick interested persons should email [email protected] or call 865-579-1530.
“RAM’s mission has always been to prevent pain and alleviate suffering by providing free, high-quality healthcare to those in need,” said RAM Founder and President Stan Brock. “Unfortunately, in the 32 years since RAM was started, we continue to see more patients at our clinics year after year. We will continue help those in need until something changes.” Health officials hope the Reno clinic will temporarily close another gap for people who are uninsured or underinsured and in desperate need of care. Locally, 16 percent of the county’s population is uninsured with 15 percent considered to be in poor or fair health. 18 percent of children live in poverty.
Medical services at this year’s clinic will include dental cleanings, dental fillings, dental extractions, eye exams, eyeglass prescriptions, eyeglass production, free eyeglasses, women’s health exams, assistance device (walkers and canes) education, osteopathic manipulative treatment and general medical exams. The event is being sponsored in part by Truckee Meadows Health Communities, a collaborative of thought leaders and influencers who seek to make an impact on the health of our community.

Series by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick airs on PBS starting Sep. 17.
The Vietnam War is a ten-part, 18-hour documentary film series directed by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, airing on PBS in September 2017. In an immersive 360-degree narrative, Burns and Novick tell the epic story of the Vietnam War as it has never before been told on film.
USA TODAY and PBS have teamed up to examine the lasting repercussions of the divisive Vietnam War through a special print edition. “VIETNAM: Still haunts us” is now available on newsstands in advance of this powerful, documentary series.
In an exclusive essay, entitled, “Why do the ghosts of Vietnam continue to haunt us?”, Burns and Novik discuss the continuing role Vietnam plays in our politics and culture, as well as the parallels between a deeply polarized public a half-century ago andnd today.
