We celebrated Nevada day on October 26, which celebrates the Silver State’s founding on October 31, 1864. For many, this holiday is a welcome day off work or school. On the occasional year that it is celebrated on October 31, children relish the opportunity to indulge in a full day of Halloween festivities without the distraction of six hours of school time.
A recent wave of deadly crashes across the Silver State has law-enforcement officials worrying about what the rest of the year might bring. In fact, 2018 is on-track to reverse the prior year’s downward trend in fatal crashes and vehicle fatalities. In 2016, the state suffered 304 fatal crashes which claimed 329 lives; in 2017, 290 fatal crashes killed 308 people.
As the so-called Millennial generation enters the mundanity of their 30s and family life, the cohort of people born around the turn of the millennium have taken the world by storm. While this group is referred to quasi-officially as Generation Z, another moniker better captures its essence: the Selfie Generation. Young people presently in their teens to early 20s have never known a world without the Internet and scarcely remember life before the iPhone.
