My daughter is moving to Winnemucca Nevada this month to work with Americorps.
I was wondering if anyone had any advice for her before she leaves as to what to expect.
Also, what's the crime rate like there?

This is a late post, but did she get the job with the animal sanctuary? If so, she will enjoy it very much. Winnemucca is a wonderful small town and a great place to raise children. Although small towns can have their crime problems, it is no where near what you would find in the surrounding cities. She will enjoy her stay!!

She is there working for the Nevada outdoor school. She seems to be enjoying it so far. The main issue is finding a place to live.
We helped her move and found it to be a friendly town and we found some surprising little gems such as "The Griddle" " Goodnight Irene" gift store the " Deliciosos coffee shop.
Thanks for your encouraging reply!

I love the Nevada Outdoor School Program...hopefully they will receive funding again ~ I heard that they wont though; financial crunches are putting these special programs by the way side. She will enjoy her stay and she will be safe, so no worries.

You should worry about her working for the Obama Youth Corps. Winnemucca is beautiful!

Americorps is a Bush I project, do your homework.

Two of the finest ideas ever to hit this country were the National Parks and the CCC, both "liberal" concepts, try as I may I cannot come up with one thing good the conservatives have ever done for this country aside from Bush I Americorps, and Bush I was hardly a conservative, so it may not count.

Salazar wants to bring back the CCC under a different name, Youth in Natural Resources, young people working on our nation's trails and parks, and the Conservatives want to call it Obama's Hitler Youth. Excuse me while I bang my head on the wall.

Abe Lincoln was wrong, he should have let the Confederacy go.

That is incorrect. AmeriCorps was created by the National and Community Service Trust Act of 1993 during the Clinton Administration.

Yeah, I always thought it was a Clinton thing as well.

This legislation built on the first National Service Act signed by President H.W. Bush in 1990. It also formally launched AmeriCorps, a network of national service programs that engage Americans in intensive service to meet the nation’s critical needs in education, public safety, health, and the environment.

In 1990, the first President Bush signed the National and Community Service Act. The act included literacy and conservation efforts, some linked to the Youth Service Corps. It also called for the creation of a nonprofit Points of Light foundation, named for Bush's "thousand points of light" inaugural speech and designed to identify new opportunities for community service. Under the Bush program, volunteers received small grants in recognition of their service
This was the historical origin of the Americorps. True, many think it was Clinton's brain child, but it predates him, as did I before my son joined it, and soon set me straight.

Spare us the emotional editorial of your political views. How about that the bulk of conservatives go to work, serve in the military, pay taxes, go to church and generally provide the solid back bone of what has made this country great. Next time you want to post an inaccurate political statement, find a political forum.
