To the Editor:

My name is Mary Sorenson and I have a facebook page called Memories of the Ruth Mining Area. I have been asked to put a book together on these pictures and a history. It will include a history of Lane/Mineral City the town’s of Ruth, Copper Flat, Veteran, Kimberly, Reipetown and West Camp. It will also include pictures and history of all of the mines up here. There will be a special dedication to the early miners that died up here. Plus pages dedicated to our veterans. This is a big project, but I feel its time to let people know the history of our area.

If you would like to help/contribute to this project, please contact me. Thank you

Mary Sorensen


To the Editor:

Hello. I am a fourth grade student in North Carolina. In fourth grade, we do state reports and I have chosen your state. I am very excited to learn more about the great state of Nevada as I work on my report.

Most of the information that we get for our reports will be from books and websites. We also like to get information from people who live in the state, too. This is why I am writing to you. I was hoping that you would be willing to send me some items to help me learn more about the best things in your state. It could be things like postcards, maps, pictures, souvenirs, general information, this newspaper article, or any other items that would be useful. You can mail items to the address below. I really appreciate your help.
