TOP STORIES:

RANCHING STANDOFF TRIAL

LAS VEGAS — A U.S. judge who declared a mistrial last month could end the much-watched criminal prosecution of a Nevada rancher accused of leading an armed uprising against federal authorities. Chief U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro’s decision on Monday is sure to echo among states’ rights advocates in Western states where the federal government controls vast expanses that some people want to remain protected and others want open for grazing, mining and oil and gas drilling.

FAMILY FEARS IMMIGRATION RULING

LAS VEGAS — Ericka Lopez spent much of her childhood bickering with her brothers and sister. Now, when her four kids start to argue, she reminds them that they need to stay on the same team. That’s an important message right now because the family could be splintered if the U.S. Department of Homeland Security terminates temporary protected status, or TPS, for immigrants from El Salvador, as it recently did for Nicaraguans and Haitians. If that happens, Ericka and her two eldest children could be forced to leave the country while her two youngest remain behind. By Jessie Bekker of the Las Vegas-Review Journal.
