Fallon, Nevada in under 2 minutes
I should clarify that it is Williams Avenue and Main Street and does not represent the entire town. Nor is it representative of all that Fallon has offer.

The Blue Damselflies of Soda Lake
At this time of year Soda Lake is invaded by dragonflies and damselflies. This year has been an especially wondrous year for Soda Lake. The damselfly population has exploded this year with blue damselflies in the millions. Like clouds of blue fairies they gather at the shoreline and rise into the air as you walk along the edge of the lake. As they make love in the tall grass mating pairs of damselflies form the shape of a heart. This must truly be where the idea for the symbol of love came from. As my dog Tigra plays along the water I cannot help but think of a time when I was young and innocent. And for a moment the troubles of the world melted away as I walked through the blue clouds of Soda Lake.

On such a warm day even with Lake Lahontan only being half full boaters and fishermen alike are taking advantage of what little water there is. Even with water coming in from the Truckee River the lake is still not even half full. This is a service fee area. With the government racing service fees everywhere I can't really see too many people taking advantage of the lake unless they have the extra money to spend.

Welcome to Fallon Nevada
The Taylor Street fountain
- Did the American taxpayer get their monies worth when the city spent close to a quarter million dollars on fountains that you really can't get close enough to enjoy?
- If it was grant money, is it not still taxpayer dollars and why did the public not have any input as to how the money was to be spent or who got the contracts to build it?
- If it's designed to entice new business, does it give the false impression that Fallon has water to spare?
- With the city having trouble maintaining the parks that it has, how much money will go into maintaining these fountains?
- Could the money have been spent more wisely elsewhere, such as Laura Mills Park or Oaks Park which are in dire need of repair and upkeep?
