 "Lady Greenwave Pink Out Night"

October 19 2013

against South Tahoe Vikings.   



This is our 4th annual event, and we like making this occasion not only about awareness for our student athletes, but also to recognize and remember those that have been diagnosed. All proceeds from this night will go back to Banner Churchill Community Hospital to help our local community patients diagnosed with breast cancer. Proceeds will be generated from various raffles, gate admissions, and individual donations made that day.



When you sponsor the Lady Greenwave Pink Out Night, your business will be printed on the back of all team's warm up shirts, free t-shirts for spectators, and shirts for the opposing team.

New law to take effect on October 1, 2013


In earlier NAE Reviews, we've reported the passage of AB 181.  AB 181 has an effective date of October 1, 2013.  We wanted to remind our members the content of this new legislation and the effective date so none of our members run afoul of this new law. 


This bill will make it unlawful for an employer to require an employee or applicant to disclose the user name, password or other information that provides access to their personal social media accounts.  AB 181 also makes in unlawful for an employer to discharge, discipline, discriminate or deny employment to an employee or applicant for failing to disclose their user name, password or other information that provides access to their personal social media account.   


However, AB 181 does not prevent an employer to require this information to an account or service, other than a personal social media account, for the purposes of access the employer's own internal computer or information system.


AB 181 also makes it unlawful for an employer to require an employee or perspective employee to submit to a consumer credit report as a condition of employment.  Or, discharge, discipline discriminate or deny employment or promotion to an employee or perspective employee who refuses, declines or fails to submit to a consumer credit report.


An employer may require an employee or perspective employee to submit to a consumer credit report if required by law; the employer has reason to believe the employee or perspective employee has violated a state or federal law; the information in the consumer credit report is reasonably related to the position for which the employee or perspective employee is being evaluated; the care custody and handling of or responsibility for money, financial accounts, credit or debit cards or other assets; managerial or supervisory responsibility; law enforcement; employment in a financial institution; employment with a gaming establishment.

It is officially that season...and my body continues to remind me that it's not quite as young and invincible as it used to be. I seem to be catching every little bug that goes around and I just can't kick it the way I used to.

And so, I am writing you today with a bit of fog in my head, but thankful it's Friday and hopeful to have a relaxing and recuperating weekend.


I had a lovely day last weekend, joining many non-Fallon locals on a journey across a few of our farms at the Tractors and Truffles event. I was again reminded of how lucky we are to live in a town where we can enjoy the literal fruits (ok, mostly veggies in NV) of our labor. It was lovely to join many out-of-towners who traveled to play in what is essentially our own back yard, topped off by an amazing evening of music and laughs at our Arts Council. I am excited that our farmers are beginning to flourish in their harvest and am personally finally looking forward to pulling out the crock pot for those warm meals we get to enjoy here in our autumn season.


The Chamber has been moving along these last few weeks in trying to recover from an exciting busy season, and prepare for the many events, programs and partnerships ahead. We hope you had a fantastic week and that you find much rest as we prepare for the week ahead!

Warmest Wishes,


Natalie Parrish

Autumn Lecture Series


Autumn is near, so it is time for our Autumn Lecture Series.  This year's series will be focused on the diversity in Churchill County and Northern Nevada. Our speakers come from the different minority groups that have made contributions to the building of our community, as it is today.   All lectures will begin at 7:30pm except where noted.

Sept. 17th - Asians in Nevada  
-Eugene Hattori, Curator of Anthropology, Nevada State Museum (NSM), will discuss Asian emigrants in Nevada with an emphasis on the Chinese of Lovelock.

Eugene M. Hattori was born in Yerington and raised in Sparks.  Gene graduated with a Bachelor of Sciences in zoology from the University of Nevada Reno and went on for his Ph.D. in anthropology at Washington State University in Pullman, Washington


Sept. 24th -"Alice Smith: Civil Rights Pioneer"

- With funding from Nevada Humanities, we are pleased to present Juanita Westbrook in this Chautauqua Presentation.   This performance will start at 6pm.  As one of the founders of the Reno-Sparks NAACP, Alice Smith knew first-hand about the prejudice faced by people of color.  Her personal experience with the consequences of racism in Reno motivated her to fight for change.  Smith's husband, a World War I veteran, died after being denied admittance to Veterans' Memorial Hospital because of his race.  From that day forward, Smith was a tireless advocate for equal rights.   


Oct. 1st - "Faith Communities Building Our Community" 

-Peggy Viney, Education Curator, Churchill County Museum & Archives - Churchill County has been built by folks of many different faiths.  This talk is a Discussion of those faith groups, their traditions, and their impact on the community through the actions of their followers.   


Oct. 8th - "Latinos in Churchill County: Helping with Economic Recovery"
- Cecilia Alonso Workforce Development Coordinator, NHDC -

With a population of 12.8% and growing in Churchill County alone, it is safe to say Latinos are the fastest growing population in Nevada. It's important to understand the diversity on key social and economic issues impacting Northern Nevada, and how Latinos are shaping our community and contributing to our economic recovery.


Oct. 15th - African-Americans in Nevada; Yesterday and Today 

-George Hardaway, Community Organizer ACTIONN - A discussion that is focused on the recognition of the historic and culturally significant contributions to the development of Northern Nevada and the impact African-Americans had on this development, especially in rural Nevada.

Oct. 22nd - Native Americans of Northern Nevada

- Sherry Rupert,Executive Director of the State of Nevada Indian Commission
-This talk will focus on the different Tribes within Northern Nevada and their impact in the growth of Nevada.  Sherry will discuss some of the myths and stereotypes that are pervasive within our society and serve to hinder opportunities for Native Americans to advance. 


Come out and learn of the many stories that create our community.


Lectures will take place at the Churchill County Museum & Archives:

1050 South Maine Street, Fallon, NV 89406.
