My View by Ralph Pokorny http://www.nevadadailymail.com/blogs/ralphpokorny/ en-us Wishes and Results http://www.nevadadailymail.com/blogs/ralphpokorny/entry/16629 You should be careful what you wish for because you just might get it. A couple of months ago I wrote about how I would miss having Nevada play Webb City in football each year. Since then MSHSAA reclassified Nevada as a Class 4 school for football and that game is back on the calendar for 2008. Unfortunately, since it is now a district game it means something more than just bragging rights or the SWC championship which will no longer exist. Don't get me wrong, I will still be glad to see...

The truth is that they intend to consider all of their options which include renovating the current facility, putting up a new community center and third, a combination of renovating the current building and adding a new gym on the north side of the present facility. The third option, which includes closing Hunter Street between Ash and Main streets, would have...

I know Nevada lost the game, just like they did the previous 24 times they played, but I will miss those annual contests. I may be the only one here that will. I know a lot people who won't miss those games at all and I'm sure most of Nevada's football players are among them. I know of some people who say that they hate Webb City. And I know that sometimes strange things happen when...

"Speaking," I replied. "Your business can be the top listed business on Google, Yahoo or...", this almost unintelligible woman with an Indian accent said before I hung up the phone.

If you want to know what I plan to write about in the coming weeks and months, you will have check back to find out.  I cannot tell you because it will change from day-to-day based on what happens and how this evolves over time. I have been told that I can write about anything and that is what I will do. I may write about economic development, which I have covered for the paper for over 10 years, as well having been a part of Main... Tue, 19 Jun 2007 15:57:17 -0500
