Sunday, February 11, 1990 Reno Gazette-Journal Carson : CARSON CITY Capital city residents will be called upon to bear the brunt of increased costs of new water treatment facilities, city supervisors were told last week. According to a spokesman for the Carson City Water and Sewage Department, residential users could face up to 40 percent in increases. Commercial users could see their bills drop by as much as 32 percent as the city tries to make costs equal. The average single-family residence is now charged about $40 a month for water and sewage service. Churchill County FALLON To discourage people from buying or collecting ivory, the Churchill County Library throughout February will feature displays from Geri Eberly's collection of more than 200 elephant sculptures. The exhibit will also include books concerning elephants as an endangered species and highlight the fact that poachers kill off massive amounts of elephants to harvest their tusks. Douglas County GENOA The Genoa Town Board decided last week to seek help to correct the boundaries of the town park located on Nixon Street across from the Genoa Community Church. The town had questioned the park's boundaries ever since it purchased the plot three years ago from Murray Alstot of Hawaii. The park is used during the annual Candy Dance and for informal gatherings. But surveys conducted recently show that a 6,700-square-foot triangular section on the north side of the park still belongs to Alstot. The town board agreed to ask Alstot to donate the section or sell it to Genoa for a nominal fee. Should he fail to do so, the park will still be usable. The section in question is planted with rose and lilac bushes. "I can't set up sale tables on the rose bushes anyway," one of the Candy Dance's organizers, Noreen Humphreys, told the board. Elko County ELKO The County Commission selected Neil Harris, Elko County Undersheriff since 1981, to replace Sheriff Jim Miller, who resigned the post to take a security job with New-mont Gold Co. Commissioner Dale Porter said the appointment of Harris would mean the least amount of adjustment for the department employees. Harris will have to run for re-election in November, when Miller's term would have expired. Miller's resignation is effective March 1, but he said he is using up accumulated vacation time and Harris has already practically taken over the duties of the office. Eureka County EUREKA The Northern Nevada Community College in Elko is offering a $500 scholarship to a Eureka High School senior planning to attend the school next fall. Applications can be picked up at the high school counselor's office and must be submitted to NNCC by March 9. Humboldt County WINNEMUCCA An anniversary special airing tonight of NBC's "Unsolved Mysteries" will feature Win-nemucca's Evelyn Routh, who was reunited with her sister after 43 years because of a segment on the show. Routh, as 7-year-old Nellie Marie McCoy, and her sister Nancy, 2, were put up for adoption in Memphis, Tenn., when their mother could no longer care for the family of five. Nancy Turner began a search of her lost family that ended when she found Routh, after already finding the three brothers. Routh, Turner and two of the brothers were reunited in Los Angeles Feb. 1 for the taping of the anniversary special. Lander County BATTLE MOUNTAIN At an emergency meeting last week, the Battle Mountain General Hospital Board of Trustees passed a resolution to seek a $241,000 short-term loan to cover about a third of the projected costs over the next two months. The remaining operating costs will come from tax revenues and expected patient revenues. The trustees will go to the County Com mission next Thursday to ask for assistance in securing the loan. Lyon County YERINGTON Assembly Speaker Joe Dini announced he will seek re-election to a 13th term in the state assembly. Dini represents Lyon and Storey counties, and portions of Churchill and Douglas counties. A Yerington businessman, Dini was first elected in 1966 and has served as speaker of the ass-membly in 1977, 1987 and 1989. He also serves on the Interim Finance Committee and the Legislative Commission, as well as interim committees on legislative and budget matters. . . . Elizabeth Halko, 16, was selected 1990 Miss Lyon County. Halko will represent Lyon County in the Miss Nevada contest in June. She received a $1,000 scholarship, with another $300 to be added when she appears at the Nevada pageant. Halko is a senior and honor roll student at Yerington High School. Mineral County HAWTHORNE Special conditions for Mineral County's new law enforcement liability coverage secured through American Justice Insurance Reciprocal includes having an around-the-clock jailer on duty and a departmental audit by a team of law enforcement specialists to evaluate management and loss. .Results of the audit will affect future acceptance, cost of coverage and amount of the deductible. The policy's present deductible for each occurrence is $20,000 and liability limits are set at $1 million for each occurrence and $2 million aggregate. The Sheriff's department had its former policy, written by Twin Cities Insurance Co., canceled last month due to a number of claims and high turnover of deputies. . . . WALKER LAKE The boat launching ramp at the BLM Sportsman's beach recreation area is completed. The Nevada Department of Wildlife furnished 75 percent of the funding and 25 percent provided by Mineral County in the form of equipment and labor. Storey County VIRGINIA CITY Radco Industries, a group of Reno investors, is spending $2 million to develop the old Gold Eagle Mine, an underground operation, on the Comstock Lode . . . The Carriage House, on the Divide, is in danger of collapse following damage in a fire last summer, the Comstock Historic District Commission was told recently. The old building, part of the county Public Works Department, is one of the few buildings still in existence that survived the great fire of 1876 . . . June 23-24 has been set for the 1990 Annual Firemen's Muster which draws volunteer firefight-ing teams from all over the west for a parade, recreation and competition. White Pine County ELY The William Bee Ririe Hospital Board of Trustees unanimously agreed to have chairman Bruce Hen-drix and administrator Jack Wood open discussions into buying the White Pine Care Center. Hendrix said the care center management contacted him about selling the 99-bed facility recently, saying they would give the hospital the first opportunity at the purchase. Hendrix said the care center, owned by a trust, appeared to be a possible financial plus for the hospital. The center has beds for skilled, intermediate and long-term care and averages about 90 percent occupancy. Compiled by Gazette-Journal staff: 788-6427; P.O.
