We would have asked why the Department of Taxation office was closed in Elko in 2009 under former Director Dino DiCianno’s gold mine lack of audit cover-up scandal... What has changed since?

ELKO — Before joining the Elko Band of Indians’ Dinner in the Park, Gov. Brian Sandoval spoke to the Free Press Thursday about his positions on several key issues.

Sandoval will stay in town today for the Elko County Fair.

His visit is part of a four-town tour of rural communities in Nevada.

EDFP: Last spring you signed a bill to create a task force that will study the possibility of the transfer of public land from federal to state control. Locally, a lot of community leaders have supported that bill and supported the transfer of public lands. Do you think such a transfer of public lands would benefit the state?

GOV: Absolutely. Backing up, it was really an honor for me because some of the Elko County Commissioners were in the Governor’s Office when I signed that bill. … It’s a bill that I supported from its inception, so I was very pleased when the Legislature passed it and put me in a position to be able to sign it. I think it’s a good thing for Nevada. It’s been a long time coming. Continue reading

Chuck Muth: Gov. Brian Sandoval already had his mind made up on tax increase

Wait. Are you kidding me?muth says

Anjeanette Damon of the Las Vegas Sun recently obtained emails showing that a troika of lobbyists/power-brokers overruled Gov. Brian Sandoval’s (R&R-Partners) senior staff on one of the governor’s numerous betrayals of his “no tax hikes” pledge. This outrageous story shows that not only are Sandoval’s promises empty, so is his suit.

At issue is what has become known as the “More Cops” tax increase for Clark County. Voters approved half the hike in 2004, when Nevada still was in times of plenty. Indeed, recall that in 2005 tax revenues had come in so much higher than expected from the 2003 Mother of All Tax Hikes that then-Gov. Kenny Guinn actually issued tax rebates. Continue reading

Carson City DA Neil Rombardo tries to justify his incompetence against complaint “This extreme — virtually unprecedented — delay should alarm Carson City”

From Nevada Appeal: Jason Woodbury: Delay on death penalty decision is cause for alarm

And Carson City Judge John Tatro caught lying on the witness stand – DA Neil Rombardo caught giving Judge John Tatro a  “hand job” during testimony! See

Note – In 2007 Neil Rombardo DID NOT seek the death penalty in 2007  – The death penalty will not be sought against David Winfield Mitchell, who is charged in the 1982 murder of an 18-year-old woman.

On April 6, police recovered the beaten body of William McCune in the Carson River. Within days, four people were arrested in connection with his murder. On April 10, District Attorney Neil Rombardo issued a press release stating he was considering the death penalty. He said a team would be assembled to help him make his decision.

neil rombardo is gayThree months later, on July 15, KRNV reported that Mr. Rombardo “might know by the end of this week.”

Six weeks later, we’re still waiting.

CARSON CITY, Nev. (KRNV & — Carson City prosecutors might know by the end of this week whether they will seek the death penalty in the murder of William McCune.

The Carson City District Attorney, Neil Rombardo, told News 4 that he is waiting for the results of the autopsy on McCune before he makes a decision on whether to pursue the death penalty.

Prosecutors believe the 62-year-old McCune was beaten and robbed before his body was bound in duct tape and dumped in the Carson River.   He had worked as the head state’s insurance division.

Last Friday, defense attorneys for four people accused in the crime began laying the groundwork for a potential death penalty case. Defense attorneys painted the victim, McCune, as having a “darker side,” asking the judge for permission to obtain court records and information regarding sexual offenses allegedly committed by McCune including information on an arrest of McCune back in 1977 on felony charges of contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile and aggravated crime against nature. Both the D.A. and judge agreed to the defense’s request. The defense says this information is key

The defendants in this case are all young, with youngest being age 20. The Washoe County Coroner’s Office is expected to provide information from the medical examiner’s office on how McCune died, including McCune’s toxicology report.

This extreme — virtually unprecedented — delay should alarm Carson City.  Continue reading

Miss Nevada Diana Sweeney is getting the last of her preparations done before leaving Sunday to compete for the title of Miss America.

A pair of shoes, some last minute touch-ups … there’s not much else the Mound House woman can do to increase her shot at the crown.

But there is something you can do.

Each Miss America contestant created a video.

The contestant who receives the most votes will be named America’s Choice and be eligible to participate as a finalist in the Miss America Competition, set to air Sept. 15.

“If you get into the top 15 you get more scholarship money for school, and you get to be a finalist for Miss America,” Sweeney said. “It would be pretty amazing.”

Sweeney, 20, said she defies the stereotype of the typical beauty queen.

In her video, she describes herself as a “small-town girl with big dreams” and can be seen riding an off-road vehicle near her home, along with teaching dance classes and at the University of Nevada, Reno, where she is pursuing degrees in math and education. Continue reading

The test happened two weeks ago with an unarmed B-61 at the Tonopah Test Range.

The Elements of Corruption

got corruption

Corruption is the abuse of power by a public official for private gain or any organized, interdependent system in which part of the system is either not performing duties it was originally intended to, or performing them in an improper way, to the detriment of the system’s original purpose. The abuse of public offices for private gain is paradigmatic of corruption.A common belief is that corruption is a judge taking bribes. The definition exceeds this theory. Corruption describes any organized, interdependent system in which part of the system is either not performing duties it was originally intended to, or performing them in an improper way, to the detriment of the system’s original purpose.

Carson City —  A quiet investigation has been under way for about two months into the conduct of a group of Capitol Police officers, the governor confirmed today.

Several officers, believed to be five or six, have been placed on administrative leave with pay pending the outcome of the investigation.

Gov. Brian Sandoval confirmed that he ordered the investigation but declined to give specifics. brian sandoval

“There was a situation that was brought to my attention that I don’t know all the details of,” Sandoval said. “It’s a personnel situation and upon learning of it I asked for an investigation.”

Capitol Police provide security for the governor, elected officials and their staffs in the state capitol.

Other officers say they have been told not to discuss the investigation.

Sandoval said the concern came from the Department of Public Safety, which oversees Capitol Police.

He said the investigation has been referred to Capitol Police and the Department of Personnel.

Asked if any officer had been disciplined, the governor said, “Once I asked for that investigation, I stepped out.”

Gerald Gardner, chief of staff for Sandoval, said one officer has been returned to duty but the investigation is continuing. He said Tuesday the results would be turned over to the state attorney general’s office. Continue reading
