Here’s a little bit about Hutch’s from the owner, Rob Hutchinson. “HBG literally started out of my garage while trying to help a few local cyclists sell off old bikes and gear. While my business model has evolved over the years, I am still commitment to serving my cycling community, industry, local bicycle shops, and the planet. I buy, sell, consign, and recycle new and used bicycles and components. My HUGE selection of pre-owned cycling equipment is backed by my personal guarantee. And because of my vast selection I have something in everyone’s budget.”
County Ordinance Passed to Permanently Ban Shooting in Lovell Canyon[LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, November 19] Save Red Rock (SRR) is pleased to announce that on October 2, 2019, Clark County Commissioners unanimously passed a County Ordinance introduced by Commissioner Justin Jones, which permanently bans shooting in Lovell Canyon, a rare forested and dispersed camping area behind Red Rock Canyon.
In May, Save Red Rock and the Brett Torino Foundation sponsored lead testing in Lovell Canyon. Soil tests conducted in the canyon by John Hiatt, Ph.D. in chemistry, revealed lead concentrations more than 30 times the EPA threshold for safety. Experts believe the alarming lead levels are due to unusually high deposits of lead ammunition. For years, Lovell Canyon forest has been ravaged by gunfire, dumped trash targets, and more than 455 acres were burnt from exploding tannerite targets.
Save Red Rock and Save Lovell Canyon supporters signed a petition in August 2017 requesting the Forest Service prohibit shooting in this dispersed camping area. A collaborative task force was formed, including the US Forest Service, Clark County Commissioners, Metro Police Department, Save Red Rock, Save Lovell Canyon, Clark County School District, Center for Biological Diversity, Friends of Nevada Wilderness, Sierra Club, Get Outdoors Nevada, Torino Foundation, and Spring Mountain Free Trappers to address the problems in Lovell Canyon.
“Save Red Rock was established to protect Red Rock Canyon, which is used by outdoor enthusiasts and those seeking peaceful recreation. As Red Rock’s backyard neighbor and campground, Lovell Canyon needs our attention and we hope to continue to assist in it’s restoration,” said Heather Fisher, President of Save Red Rock. “We are grateful to our Clark County Commissioners for taking action to protect our public lands and recreation areas."
Save Red Rock is a nonprofit organization working to preserve the safety, serenity, and scenic nature of Red Rock Canyon and Lovell Canyon.
