Boomtowns and mining camps

Most of the boomtowns and mining camps were founded on mineral strikes that were often greatly exaggerated by rumor. “Boomers” flocked to the newest canvas tent town hoping to get rich, and, as the digging progressed, merchants, families, ladies of fortune, and unscrupulous lawyers followed the transient prospectors. Soon there were streets, log cabins, storefronts and saloons crowded together as if to ward off the loneliness of the vast Nevada deserts. You can visit some of the old ghost towns, mining towns, and boomtowns that sprang up near Fallon.

Wolf Pack schedule flaunts ‘historic’ challenges

The Nevada Wolf Pack is touting its 2016-17 men’s basketball schedule as including one of the “strongest non-conference schedules in school history.” Well, sort of. While it is true that this year’s non-league schedule is tougher than last year’s patsy parade, this year’s non-league lineup isn’t exactly a powerhouse parade. St. Mary’s, Oregon State and Washington are mildly interesting but there is nobody on the schedule that the Pack cannot beat. It is just a collection of middle-of-the-road schools such as Irvine, Iona, Santa Barbara, Towson, Weber State and Bradley, whose bark is much worse than its bite. In short, it is a brilliant piece of scheduling by the Wolf Pack that should raise its RPI enough to get it to the NIT if the NCAA dreams fall short.
