Congressman Mark Amodei – He’ll await the arrival of all the evidence before he makes up his mind…

During an over-the-phone news conference with Nevada news reporters this week Nevada’s lone republican Congressman said that he favors the investigation of President Trump’s actions surrounding the Ukraine controversy.  “But I’m not going to say one way or the other whether I’ll vote to impeach him.  All the facts aren’t in yet.”

Amodei, Nevada’s only republican in the Congress, said there was confusion over what he meant last week when he indicated he supports the INQUIRY on grounds for impeachment – not IMPEACHMENT itself.  Amodei says he wants the full impeachment investigation to be on the table before he casts his vote with the rest of the House of Representatives.

State Education Committee says…”It’s time to overhaul education funding….”

Governor Steve Sisolak
“Nevada needs to catch up…”

The recently created Nevada Commission on School Funding has started to roll up their sleeves on how to improve education funding in the state.  The current funding formulas are literally over a half-century old.  The commission met Friday for the first time and claimed they’re prepared to revamp the way Nevada raises education funding and how to target student groups that have been falling behind.  The Commission says streamlining funding and being transparent about it will vastly improve the fuel that runs our state’s K-12 schools.

Governor Steve Sisolak has been raising the bar over his own frustrations over anemic levels of spending for Nevada students who have a huge challenge in meeting employment demands nationwide. High tech, high tech, high tech. Yet there are student groups who barely speak English at one end of the spectrum with many gifted and talented students on the other. Disparities in family incomes and children coming home to empty dwellings caused by the absolute requirement that both parents work, are also taking a toll on Nevada students.

The 11 member Commission is tasked with guiding the Department of Education’s work so that there will be noticeable educational improvements by the end of the 2021 school year.

Growing lots of marijuana in plain sight – and they’re busted…

Marijuana

A Carson City couple growing excessive amounts of marijuana in plain sight has been arrested by Sheriff’s Deputies.

Deputies obtained a search warrant on the residence of Brian and Tanya Walkem at 1116 Fremont in Carson City. When deputies knocked on the door they told the couple that they were there to investigate whether they were in possession of too much marijuana and whether they were growing more than the legal limit under the law.

The Walkem’s proceeded to escort the deputies around the property showing plants growing against the backyard fence, along a side yard, growing in a well lit grow-house, and more plants inside the home. Deputies also found evidence of a process of concentrating marijuana in to a more potent product which is against the law. All-in-all more than $50,000 in illicitly grown and processed marijuana.

Both Brian and Tanya Walkem were arrested – Brian for Illegal Cultivation of Marijuana, Possession For Sale, Illegal Trafficking and Cultivation of Concentrated Marijuana. Tanya was charged with Illegal Cultivation of Marijuana and Illegal Possession of a Controlled Substance.

Congressional candidate: Clint Koble on Ukraine controversy

From Candidate for Congress Clint Koble:

I support Speaker Pelosi and the U.S. House of Representative’s decision to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump. His actions regarding the whistleblower incident, and the exchange he had with Ukrainian president Zelesnky regarding the Bidens, is alarming and unconstitutional. These latest actions by President Trump cross the line into impeachment territory.

One of the founding principles of our country is that no one is above the law. The House needs to follow through with the impeachment inquiry, and uncover the facts. Our democracy has been held hostage by this President long enough – he ignores our laws and our principles, and even basic human decency. We need to restore a system of checks and balances to prevent abuse of power by the Executive Branch. Our American democracy is defined by those willing to defend and fight for it. There’s never a wrong time to do the right thing.

Commenting further…

I support Speaker Pelosi and the U.S. House of Representative’s decision to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump.
