HISTORY:

Moapa Valley has been inhabited since approximately 1000 B.C. according to archeological research. The earliest inhabitants were American Indians including the Pueblos until around A.D. 1150, and after that the Paiute Indians. The Moapa Band of Paiutes have a reservation in Moapa,and operate the Moapa Tribal Plaza at the East Entrance of the Valley of Fire State Park.

The Mormons started an agricultural community along the Muddy River at St. Thomas (abandoned and submerged when Hoover Dam was built) in 1864. Additional towns were settled including St. Joseph (currently Logandale), Overton, Westpoint (currently Moapa), and Kaolin (suffered the same fate as St. Thomas).

  • Blue skies and sunny weather for the majority of the Clark County Fair has been rare in recent years. This year’s Fair was fortunate to line up with fairly ideal conditions.

  • Over 300 people showed up on Wednesday night for the Moapa Valley Town Advisory Board (MVTAB) meeting in Overton to show support for embattled rancher Cliven Bundy.

  • The Moapa Valley Revitalization Project (MVRP) will be facilitating the second quarterly Community Coalition Meeting on Wednesday, April 23, beginning at 6:30 pm in the North Shore Inn Conference Room. All are invited.

  • Last week, the BLM action to seize and remove what were being called “trespass cattle” belonging to Bunkerville rancher Cliven Bundy, quickly escalated from a small local news story to catching the attention of a national and international audience.

  • It is still unclear what benefit U.S. taxpayers have derived from the federal cattle roundup operation that has gone on in our backyard over the past couple of weeks.

  • No one asked me but...… Last week I stated that federal courts ignored state law when they ruled against rancher Cliven Bundy and found in favor of the federal government. What I think in this matter really doesn’t mean much.

  • I can stand in my yard and see the hills and mesas for miles. (No trees to get in the way). The mornings are filled with the cooing and cawing of the doves.

  • On a recent trip to the Gold Butte area with some of my family I was shocked and surprised when we came upon a warning sign informing us if we passed this point we could be fined up to $100,000.

  • The U.S. Bureau of Land Management was set to spend a million dollars to eliminate one man from the land his family has ranched since 1878. The BLM restricted the American public’s prying eyes from the entire Gold Butte

  • Are we safe to walk the streets of Overton? I am a 76 year old lady who rides these streets in a medical mobile scooter.
