Question: I would really like to know what process was used in choosing the number "580" for the new, extremely short, "interstate" highway that now flows through part of Reno, and continues south, more or less, to Carson City! - Bourne Morris Answer: As your elaborate email also suggests, there is an Interstate 580 in California that runs east of ...

Northern Nevada and Northern California are going to merge very soon. 580 is a main Freeway to the East Bay of California. Very soon 580 in Nevada and 580 in California are going to connect. When? Nobody knows.

Even Wikipedia has leaked this information:

With so much disparity between Las Vegas and Nevada's state capital, Carson City, 450 miles (720 km) away, some have proposed splitting Nevada into two or more states. One proposal has Northern Nevada linking with Northern California, Southern Nevada splitting away with other regional areas, and eastern Nevada becoming part of Utah

Yes, this is confirmed via wikipedia. Northern Nevada is broke, you can see it all through Reno and Carson City, coming from the East Coast Northern Nevada is staring to look like cities in New Jersey that are empty. Empty bildings on every corner, that is normal for the Midwest and East Coast, but not the West.

Casino usuage is way way down, and they are losing so much money. Nevada's bread line is casinos.

That's it. And that has tanked. Californians have their own casino and don't need Nevada any more. Californians funded this site with Casino usuage, and that run is over.

The merging of two Gov's Will be posiive. Northern Nevada's economy would soar. If you own proerty in Northern Nevada it would triple in value with the merge.

It's a good thing for these two to merge. However if you are a renter or depend on APT. living your rent will go up as well. No more 400 dollar Apts!!!

So, true. Nevadans becaming arrogant and rude towards the Caifornians that visited and used the Casinos for pleasure.

Nevadans used the motto"T hank You for paying our taxes now go home!"

Word finally got out about the treatment of the local Nevadans towards Californians, and he majority stoped coming.

Eventually California would build it's own smoke free Casinos and stay home. This cost Nevada Billions.

Whether or Nevadans want to admit, California is the Master of the state. Without Californians visiting reguarly, there is virtually no economy other than Wal Mart and a Dollar TREE for Northern Nevada.

Nevada tried to bring back the Californians buy advertising low buisness taxes in the state. But it didn't work, and Californians weren't falling for it.

Now Nevada is paying for it's arrogance towards California. Reno and Carson City have tons and tons of empty buildings and bankrupt buisnesses. You acn't go five feet without somebody begging for money or somebody sleeping in the street.

This used to be in DT Reno only. Now it's all over the the Reno- Sparks and Carson City area. This chases people away.

Northern Nevada keeps chasing those that fed(Californians) the state out. And it is showing.

An NFL team wanted to set up it's training camp here, would of brought millions to the local economy. Northern Nevada being a support of the NFL said No.

So what did they get instead? A minor league NBA team called the Big Horns which attracts about 3 people.

So Northern Nevada will suffer, until the merging begins.

Once the merging happens, you will see unbelievable prosperity and economic growth in the Reno- Carson Area.

Yea 7 years ago, Reno and Carson were booming. Now you can't go 5 feet without seeing empty buisnesses and being asked for change. Carson looks like a bomb hit it.

Also, dont forget the undocumented workers will be leaglized very soon.

The Number is around 12 million. Each person can bring at least 10 persons from their country.

You looking at possibly 112 million people calling America home. Since California holds the most ex undocumented workers, many Middle Class Californians will probably leave the state because it will be over whelming for them.

So the Reno- Carson area will hook up with the Bay Area's 580 and brining many Californians to the area.

This one of the reasons for the 580 connection. Making easier for those to commute back and forth to Reno and California.

If you won any prperty know, hang on to it, it will be worth a ton with the migration.

The only benefits to all of us are Nevada Mining and NO state income tax at all!

We say NO to the merge to California because it would destroy jobs and others as well!

California's debt is increasing and Nevada's debt is decreasing as well!
