SILVER DOLLAR: To the Nevada Builders Alliance for taking over the restoration of Jack’s Bar and its effort to maintain the historical integrity of the building. We look forward to patronizing the Bank Saloon when the restoration is finished.

SILVER DOLLAR: To Coin Press No. 1. The Nevada State Museum launched an 18-month sesquicentennial celebration for the historical artifact today.

SILVER DOLLAR: On this anniversary weekend of Pearl Harbor, let us never forget Dec. 7, 1941. And again we thank all those who have served to protect this country, including Pearl Harbor veterans, and those who paid the ultimate price, including those who paid the ultimate price at Pearl Harbor.
