Indian Tacos Part of Ely’s Heritage

Come to Ely for most holidays or special events and likely you will
have the opportunity to sample an authentic  Indian Taco made by
Laura Rainey, owner of Smoke Signals Native American Indian
Jewelry store located within the Steptoe Valley Gift Shop at 625
Aultman Street.

For those of you not familiar with Indian tacos, a little explanation is
in order. The taco begins with a generous piece of fresh, handmade
yeast dough rolled out and then deep fried in hot oil, right in front of
you. Then a ladle of ground beef and beans in a tasty sauce is added
on top of the fry bread. Next comes the toppings of your choice
including, shredded lettuce, tomatoes, chopped onions, cheese and a
choice of mild or hot salsa. The taco is ready for you to dig in and
enjoy. This is a hefty meal, but leave just a little room for dessert of
deep fried bits of dough tossed with powered sugar or cinnamon
sugar known as cotton tails. These tasty bites are a perfect ending to
an authentic taco that will have you hunting for them on every
occasion in Ely.

Tasty Cotton Tails to finish the meal.

BLM Seeks Public Comment on Final
Bristlecone and Goshute Canyon
Wilderness Management Plan

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Ely District is asking
the public to review and provide comment on the Final
Bristlecone and Goshute Canyon Wilderness Management Plan
and Environmental Assessment (EA).  The deadline to provide
comment is Friday, Nov. 7, 2014.

The BLM is preparing a single management plan for the two
wilderness areas because of their proximity and similarity of
issues.  The plan provides the BLM primary guidance on all
decisions affecting the wilderness and establishes management
practices that will maintain and protect their values for this and
future generations.

The Final Bristlecone and Goshute Canyon Wilderness
Management Plan and EA is available online at http://on.doi.
gov/1tulnuY.  A paper version or compact disc can be obtained
by contacting BLM Ely District Wilderness Planner Gus Malon
at 775-293-5863 or

Interested individuals should address all written comments to the

BLM Ely District to Gather Wild Horses

ELY – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Ely District is scheduled in
early November 2014 to begin gathering and removing approximately 120 excess
wild horses from in and around the Triple B and Silver King Herd Management
Areas (HMAs) in eastern Nevada.  Details will be posted on the district website
at as they become available. The helicopter gathers
are necessary to prevent further damage to private property and provide for
public and animal safety.  

The District will remove about 70 excess wild horses from the Triple B HMA,
located about 30 miles northwest of Ely, that are damaging private property,
and harassing and breeding domestic stock resulting in landowner complaints.  
Appropriate Management Level (AML) for the Triple B HMA is 215-250 wild
horses.  The current population is 1,311 wild horses.

The District will remove up to 50 excess wild horses from in and around the
Silver King HMA.  The horses to be gathered are located about 120 miles south
of Ely.  They are a safety concern on U.S. Highway 93 and are damaging private
property, resulting in property owner complaints.  AML for the Silver King
HMA is 60-128 wild horses.  The current population is 452 wild horses.

BLM attempts to keep wild horses away from private property and the
highway, including trapping and relocating animals to other portions of the
HMAs, have been unsuccessful.

The BLM will utilize the services of gather contractor Cattoor Livestock
Roundup, Inc., of Nephi, Utah, which uses a helicopter to locate and herd wild
horses toward a set of corrals to be gathered.  The pilot is assisted by a ground
crew and a domesticated horse that is trained to guide the horses into the corral.  
The use of helicopters, which is authorized by the 1971 Wild Free-Roaming
Horses and Burros Act, has proven to be a safe, effective and practical means by
which to gather excess wild horses with minimal anxiety or hardship on the

Wild horses removed from the range will be transported to the National Wild
Horse and Burro Center at Palomino Valley (PVC), in Reno, Nev., where they
will be offered for adoption to qualified individuals.  Wild horses for which there
is no adoption demand will be placed in long-term pastures where they will be
humanely cared for and retain their “wild” status and protection under the 1971
Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act.  The BLM does not sell or send any
horses to slaughter.  

A Wild Horse Gather Information Line has been established at (775) 861-6700.  
A recorded message will provide information on daily gather activities and
schedules.  The BLM will also post daily gather information on its website at:

Public lands within the HMAs will be open to the public during gather
operations, subject to necessary safety restrictions, and the BLM will make
every effort to allow for public viewing opportunities. The BLM has
established protocols for visitors to ensure the safety of the horses, the public,
and BLM and contract staff. The protocols are available at: http://on.doi.
gov/1lGnDYC under Observation Opportunities.

Gather activities in and outside the Triple B HMA were analyzed in the Triple
B, Maverick-Medicine and Antelope Valley HMA Gather Plan and
Environmental Assessment (EA), signed in May 2011 and available at http://on.  Gather activities in and around the Silver King HMA were
analyzed in the Ely District Public Safety and Nuisance Gather EA signed in
August 2014 and available at

nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the
use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of
multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7
