Oppose Massive New National Monument Designation in Nevada
Representative Hardy is Pushing Back Against Administration Plans to Designate More than 700,000 Acres as a National Monument
Representative Crescent Hardy (R-NV) has publicized that the Administration is considering designating over 700,000 acres in his district as a National Monument. Hardy recently stated, “I am appalled and deeply concerned about the national security implications of President Obama’s politically motivated effort to permanently tie up more than 700,000 acres of land."
Send an email urging President Obama and Interior Secretary Sally Jewel NOT to move forward with this massive inappropriate designation. It is imperative that you take action as the Administration is likely to cite strong local support for the designation – we must make sure they hear from Nevadans and others from the local area that oppose the designation.

Fernie Padilla captures first overall triumph in SNORE Race Fuel 250 at Caliente
By Mike Henle
CALIENTE – The return of the Southern Nevada Off Road Enthusiasts to this area about 180 miles north of Las Vegas lived up to its billing as an action-packed economic shot in the arm.
The SNORE Race Fuel 250 May 29-30 drew a field of 89 entries competing over a 42-mile course complete with everything from water crossings to wooden bridges and the traditional challenges faced by off-road racers in what must be considered one of the most unique logistical combinations in the sport.
Rich in history and eager to welcome outdoor enthusiasts, this charming town with friendly people and a slower lifestyle served as the perfect getaway for many; and with limited availability for off-road events, the latest presentation attracted earth-rumbling machinery, fun-loving serious race teams along with wounded members of the military who joined the competition by running shotgun in a Ford Ranger Trophy Truck with driver Tony Scott, a 49 year-old U.S. Navy veteran of Desert Storm who powered handled the driving.
Las Vegas native Fernie Padilla, a 30 year-old racer powering a Class 1-2 1600 entry, captured class and overall victories in the event. The triumph was his first overall victory in a car owned by Southern California businessman Vic Ziegler.

By Mike Henle
CALIENTE -- The Southern Nevada Off Road Enthusiasts (SNORE) auto racing sanctioning body returns to Lincoln County after a brief absence and you can bet that the Race Fuel 250 will be met with open arms to this community situated about 180 miles north of Las Vegas.
With a field of about 85 entries along with a contingent of followers ranging from pit crews to your basic off-road racing fan, the invasion of SNORE will bring with it a huge boost to the town May 29-30.
Festivities kick off with a meet and greet at Caliente Elementary Friday from 8:30-10:30 a.m. in what has proven a wildly-popular start to the weekend as SNORE presents its third race of the six-race Terrible Herbst Motor Sports Championship Series.
Tech inspection and registration begins at 3 p.m. at the Knotty Pine Restaurant and Lounge.
On Saturday, race action begins at 8 a.m. at the local motocross track.
Knotty Pine Restaurant and Lounge owner Bud Sanders is among the business owners here who always look forward to SNORE bringing a crowd to what is normally a very quiet community.
“Oh yes, SNORE is great for business,” said Sanders, who is such an off-road enthusiast that he event works a checkpoint for the event. “Being a small community, we don’t have many special events and SNORE is a big spectator deal.
