Two new members were added to the Railroad Management Board after being nominated by Mayor Melody Van Camp and approved by the Ely City Council at the council’s meeting on Aug. 28.

A controversial agenda item from councilman Sam Hanson to remove the other three members of the management board was tabled until the council’s next meeting on Sept. 11.

The two new members of the Railroad Management Board are Judy Lynn O’Brien and J. Terry Walker. Both Walker and O’Brien will sit on the board until Sept. 30, 2016.

The figure of $374,000 was brought to light as the amount that the city owes to S and S Shortline for track rehabilitation. The amount answered one of the major questions the council and Railroad Board of Trustees have brought up time and again in their meetings.
Councilman Bruce Setterstrom said he was “relieved” at the amount, fearing it might have been much higher. Councilman Marty Westland made it known he’s still wary of the car storage agreement the city is in with S and S Shortline, claiming the city needs to “stop being so nice.”

Westland said his fears stem from S and S Shortline’s history of scrapping small railroads for profit. The council unanimously passed a motion by Westland to instruct City Attorney Richard Sears to draft a letter asking for a renegotiation of terms on the contract.

The two-and-a-half hour meeting at the armory began with nearly 40 minutes of public comment. Many individuals voiced concerns over the council’s on-going involvement in the Nevada Northern Railroad’s affairs, though several said they supported the council’s diligence.

No more sleeping in. No more summer jobs or family vacations. Those all ended with the sound of the alarm clock Monday morning, ushering in the end of summer and the beginning of the new school year. Backpacks, homework and pop quizzes are back in fashion for the next nine months.

For the 104 new freshman at White Pine High School, the first week at a new school can be the toughest. It is a big transition, learning a new schedule and making sure they are in the right classroom is just the start and what they may not know is that the school’s administration started their school year over two weeks ago to try and make everything as seamless as can be.

“We’ve spent the past two and a half weeks before school starts building the master schedule and looking at each student’s course requests, trying to match them up the best we can to prepare our students to be the best learners they can be,” White Pine High School’s Principal Adam Young said.

The incoming freshman will all have to take a mandatory introduction class taught by seniors, titled “Freshman Achievements” that, according to Young, helps “teach them what high school is all about.”

“The class is there for new students to learn simple things like how many credits it takes to graduate or how to be good studiers and good time managers,” the principal said. “It is important because a lot of them might not initially realize how big of a step up it is from middle school to high school. For one thing, there is a lot more homework.”

Still, for some students, such as seventh grader Samantha Collins, going back to school can be something worth looking forward to.

“I’m excited to get to go back because of how much fun I have with my teachers,” Collins said about returning to White Pine Middle School. Her identical twin sister Tacy Collins agreed, adding that her teacher Ms. Allen was the reason she was excited to return to the classroom (for more thoughts on how middle school students feel about going back to class, see “Talk of the Town” on page 3A).

Whether the new students are heading into a classroom for the first time or for their final year, Young said he has advice that will make this school year a successful and enriching one.

“Stay involved and really try hard from day one,” Young said. “Those two little things that I have learned over the years make the biggest difference for students. If they do that, they will be fine.”

A lawsuit against the Ely City Council and Railroad Board of Trustees was filed on Tuesday afternoon by the law firm of Gianoli Husbands as instructed by the Railroad’s Management Board. The lawsuit, which was approved at the Management Board’s last meeting on Aug. 15, lists all five sitting members of the city council as well as Mayor Melody Van Camp on five separate charges.

The five charges listed in the lawsuit include: “Violation of Constitutional Due Process;” “Violations of Nevada Open Meeting Law;” “Violation of Foundation’s Bylaws;” “Injunction against Council Martin Westland Due to Conflict of Interest;” and “Breach of Fiduciary Duty.”

Detailed in the 40-page document is the crumbling relationship between the board of trustees for the railroad and the management board, which resulted in the removal of the Chairman and Vice-Chairman of the management board at the Aug. 7 city council meeting.. The verified complaint seeks “injunctive relief and damages” for the charges listed.

The details of the lawsuit are now public record and available at the County Clerk’s office. For a more in-depth analysis of the lawsuit and it’s allegations, as well as the latest news from the Aug. 28 Ely City Council meeting, see next week’s issue.

In French, “en plein air” means in the open air. To Nevada Northern Railway Sales and Marketing Director Dany Feinstein, the phrase conjures up images of artists sitting outside in a park, painting the landscapes that surround them. This Labor Day weekend, the NNRY will host their fourth annual Plein Air Outdoor Arts Festival, gathering local and out of town artists together outside to create art live.

“It is just a great opportunity to watch an artist go from a blank canvas to a new creation” Feinstein said.

At least 16 different booths will line the railroad track from Aug. 29 through Sept. 1, with artists sharing the sunlight with other vendors, such as crafts and food. Train paintings are usually the most popular item to come out of the festival each year according to Feinstein. Knowing that, the NNRY plans on staging trains along the track to provide inspiration for new paintings this year, from painters such as Ornon Shaw from Cedar City or local artist Donna Carling.

Though the focus is on art and the creative process of working live, outdoors, Feinstein said that the festival has grown to include other talented, local and out of town artisans.

“This year we have expanded beyond just Plein Air. We’ll have handmade crafts and jewelry as well as homemade jams and salsas, scents candles. It will really be a variety,” Feinstein said.

Though pieces of art will be available for purchase at the festival, it is not a fundraiser for the railroad. Instead, Feinstein describes the event more as one more venue artists in and around Ely can show their work and promote a more inclusive artistic culture in the area.

“It thrills me completely to see more art and dance in Ely. In our region there is a plethora of artists and artisans, and no one event takes anything away from them, instead, its like all of these events add up to be something greater than the sum of their parts. It’s all enhancing the arts and culture in Ely,” she said.

Feinstein encourages everyone to come out and support the artists so they will want to return again next year. For more information on the festival, contact Feinstein at 775-289-2085 or check out their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/nnry1.

White Pine High School Volleyball Coach Kenna Almberg knows that her past few teams had the talent to make it to the state championships. But for the past several years, the Ladycats have failed to advance past the divisional round of the playoffs. Coming into this season, Almberg said she has a plan to get better results.

“We lacked mental toughness in the past and that made it hard to advance. This year is the year I really feel like we are going to make it to state,” Almberg said.

Luckily for the coach, the Ladycats will have their mental toughness tested on Friday as they open their 2014-2015 season playing host to a six-team tournament. The Ladycats will play four games on Friday, lining up against Wells at 11 a.m. Tonopah at noon, West Wendover at 2:30 p.m. and Battle Mountain at 7 p.m. The Ladycats will face Jackpot at 8 a.m. on Saturday.

“I’m feeling pretty confident in our team so far. Our practices have all gone well and we’ve worked a lot on speeding up our offense,” Almberg said.

The Ladycats return three seniors from last year’s team.

One big change this year is the team’s change in division. The Ladycats will now compete in the south division, same as football.

“I think it’s great. We can finish a game and then go watch football or vice versa,” Almberg said. “It allows the teams to support one another.”

Thomas Carline-1Tom Carline completed his physical life on August 23, 2014. Born in McGill, NV in 1933, he attended White Pine High School in Ely, NV and graduated from The University of Denver after which he taught and coached at Gunnison CO High School before serving in the U.S. army in Germany from 1957 to 1959. He then was a General Manager with New York Life Ins. Co. for 14 years in Boulder, CO.

Tom married his high school sweetheart Glenna Thompson of Ely in 1955. Tom was always thankful for growing up in McGill where Kennicott fostered wonderful athletic programs that served so many of his generation well in gaining scholarships for future growth. His love of baseball is well known, and it served him well.

Their love of the high mountain country prompted Tom and Glenna to make the Nederland CO area their home and in the early 1970’s formed Nederland Realty and were Real Estate Brokers there for the next thirty years. Tom’s expertise in real estate was brokering large land and retreat properties. He also developed Sunnyside Subdivision in Nederland and was the log home representative in the building of The Lodge at Nederland and several log homes throughout the area. He enjoyed civic life; served on numerous boards and as President of the Nederland Chamber of Commerce.

Tom leaves love and fond memories with his many friends, Glenna and their two sons Eric Kenneth Carline of Littleton, CO, Thomas Glenn Carline and daughter-in-law, Michelle Carline of Grand Junction, CO. Tom’s parents, Mary and Domenic Carline and his brother Don Carline preceded him in death.

He is survived by an Aunt, Josie Zakula of McGill, NV, two nieces, Mary Lida Carline-Gilkinson of Ft. Collins, CO; Shelly Harvey of Vancouver, WA and also by several very special cousins and in-law families.

The Carline family would like to thank our relatives and friends for their love, caring and presence in Tom’s life and in ours, especially throughout this “long goodbye” of several years. We have been blessed, not only for the wonderful years with Tom, but by the abundance of beautiful memories expressed about him by so many.

Memorial donations in Tom’s name may be made to the Mayo Clinic Arizona Alzheimer’s Research Program, 13400 E. Shea Blvd. Scottsdale, AZ 85259.

Just think of the Environmental Protection Agency as the princess and ozone as the pea, and you will get some idea of the scope of the problem.

In 2008, the EPA set the ground-level ozone standard for air quality at 75 parts per billion (ppb). That’s parts per billion with a B. Think of 1 ppb as the equivalent of one drop of ink in the tank of the largest gasoline tanker truck.

Ozone is formed from the emissions of vehicles, power plants and factories, as well as naturally from vegetation and fires.

But now the EPA is signaling that it intends to cut the standard to 70 or 60 ppb — five or 15 drops fewer — even though the states have not yet fully implemented the 2008 standard.

The agency claims this would reduce annual ozone-related premature deaths by 8,000 — a highly debatable conclusion.

One of the most frequently cited benefits of reducing ozone is to children with asthma.

“While ozone can trigger asthma attacks, the effect is small,” said a Heartland Institute report from several years ago. “According to estimates by the California Air Resources Board (CARB), eliminating virtually all human-caused ozone in California — where millions of people live in areas with by far the highest ozone levels in the country — would reduce asthma-related emergency room (ER) visits by only 1.8 percent.”

Perhaps the most jaw-dropping aspect of this proposed regulation is what those nine mattresses for the princess will cost.

A study by NERA Economic Consulting, commissioned by the National Association of Manufacturers, estimates the lower ozone standard would cost the economy $270 billion a year — the most expensive regulation ever imposed on American businesses — and eliminate the equivalent of 2.9 million jobs a year through 2040.

The price of residential electricity would increase 15 percent on average across the nation, while the price of natural gas would jump 32 percent.

The study said that manufacturers in nonattainment areas will not be able to expand operations unless another business in the area reduces emissions or closes its doors. Economic growth in these regions would nearly come to a standstill.

Nevada, which has been largely unaffected by the 2008 ozone standard, would be impacted even in rural counties.

The study says the Silver State’s gross state product would be reduced by $19 billion from 2017 to 2040, costing 11,224 jobs a year.

And that is assuming the standard is even achievable. NERA Economic Consulting notes the EPA has identified only 39 percent of the controls needed to meet the standard. The remaining 61 percent has yet to be identified, which leaves the firm to suggest this would likely result in early scrapping of plants, equipment and vehicles — a huge capital cost.

Compliance will mean shutting down or modifying power plants, factories, heavy-duty vehicles, farm equipment, off-road vehicles and passenger cars. For Nevadans it will cost $23 million more to own and operate vehicles.

Ray Bacon, executive director of the Nevada Manufacturers Association, pointed out that such a state-by-state rule is especially unfair to Nevada. In addition to the ozone that blows in from California, an increasing amount of the 85 percent of Nevada that is federal public land is burned by wildfire every year, adding untold amounts of ozone to our air.

“The problem is the damned bad air fails to respect borders, so the bad air which comes off the Mojave Desert and from California’s urban areas becomes our problem to solve at the state level under this scheme when we have no control or jurisdiction over the sources of the pollution,” Bacon replied to an email inquiry.

“While the Commerce Clause (of the Constitution) is supposed to promote equitable commerce between the states,” Bacon writes, “I think killing commerce on a basis of something over which the state has no jurisdiction is, or at least should be, a violation of the intent of the section of the law.”

Sen. John Thune, a South Dakota Republican, has introduced an amendment to the Shaheen-Portman energy efficiency bill that would stop the EPA from imposing the ozone standard.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada’s senior senator, should put the Thune amendment on the floor for a vote as soon as Senate returns from recess. He and Sen. Dean Heller should vote aye for the sake of Nevadans’ pocketbooks and jobs. — TM

Jimmy Danner grew up at Murdock’s Metal and Paint auto repair shop in downtown Ely working for his father. Little did he know that he would eventually follow in his footsteps to become the owner and manager of the auto body repair shop.

“I was in here when I was 12 years old working for my dad,” Danner said. “When the time came to buy the place out, it just felt like the natural next step. Now I’ve been here for 44 years.”

Danner said the key to his business has always been about taking care of his customers and his employees. He admits growing up in the shop, he never saw fixing cars as a hobby. He worked hard and became good at it because he needed the money. What he realized was his enjoyment didn’t come from tightening screws or replacing fan belts, it was working with a good group of people and helping others get back on the road.

“My favorite part about this job is knowing that we are providing meals for the families of my employees,” Danner said. “I was never in auto shop in high school. It was fun for me to work on cars all day. I enjoy working with people to make sure they are taken care of. That’s what I get the most out of.”

Not that he has always had the luxury of a hardworking staff surrounding him. In his many years running the repair shop, Danner recalls one time where he had to operate by himself.

“There have been good times and bad times and you just have to adjust your approach as a manager. I can recall on two-month stretch where it was just me and a part-time helper running things. But we got the work done,” Danner said, before adding, “What you learn is that running your own businesses is hard work. I don’t know if anyone thinks that it is easy, but that is not the case.”

Murdock’s Metal and Paint receives “around 95 percent” of its business on collision repair. Through his years working on cars, Danner said this time of year is when things usually start to pick up as the roads get slick with rain or snow.

“We have busy and slow winters. What people need to look out for is what I call slick and quick storms, where it snows and gets the roads slick, but then melts off before people get used to driving on it,” he said.

For more information on Murdock’s, or to set up a repair, call Danner at 775-289-4723.

Sports4New White Pine High School Football Coach Quinn Ewell knows that he has a lot of work to do to get his team ready for their season opener at West Wendover on Friday. After a disappointing winless season a year ago, Ewell said that he will gauge the success of the team by how hard they play, and how much progress players make from week to week.

“Last year was tough, but losing like that becomes a mental thing. If we can break them out of that, and see them get better each week, we can be a good team,” Ewell said.

The Bobcats will come back to Ely to face Battle Mountain on Sept. 5 at 7 p.m. in their home opener. After that the team will get two weeks off before heading to Las Vegas to take on private school Meadows on Sept. 19.
