Nevada Briefing A daily look at people and events "Taking news in Nevada. SATURDAY - 2B APRIL 27, 1991 Flag flying without approval CARSON CITY Nevada's state flag has been waving without formal legislative approval for 62 years, lawmakers were told Friday. Senate Government Affairs members agreed Friday to a bill that would change the flag that had been approved only by the Assembly and not the state Senate in 1929. Later legislatures either haven't noticed the error or simply haven't thought it was worth the trouble to change it. "The 1929 Legislature basically screwed up," state Archivist Guy Rocha told the committee. "And for some unknown reason this mistake appears to have gone undetected for some 60 years." Rocha discovered the statutory error while researching SB396, the measure that would spruce up the state flag by untangling the letters spelling "Nevada" from their jumbled positions. Rocha said senators agreed in 1 929 to a flag without the state name and later accepted an amended version that neatly spelled out "Nevada" below sprays of sagebrush. But an Assembly amendment, never approved by senators, produced the current flag with the jumbled letters, Rocha said.

T The Truckee-Carson Irrigation expects to provide 30 percent of the normal allotment to farmers this summer, meaning 70 percent less water will flow back into the aquifer. "It's impossible to say there won't be an effect," said Michael Anderson of the state Engineer's office. Anderson said it was impossible to predict how much of an effect the reduced irrigation water might have on the wells because a volume of data on the subject is scattered over time. "We've had some wells go dry in the past, back in the early '70s, but those wells were extremely shallow," County Manager Bjorn Selinder said. Fallon should have plenty of water this summer and will be able to help those who don't, according to Mayor Robert Erickson. "The aquifer we draw from is tremendous in size. There's been no drop in it since the city began drawing from it," he said. Erickson said water would be available in town for people who run out, and supplies could be delivered in sanitized trucks like those used for milk.
