Members of the state's congressional delegation and a U.S. Interior Department official speaking at a wild horse summit in Salt Lake City on Wednesday say the western wild horse population is unsustainable.

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump is calling for patriotism and national healing as he praises veterans at an American Legion conference in Nevada.

LAS VEGAS (AP) - The top federal prosecutor in Nevada is vowing a third try to convict two accused gunmen of armed assault on a federal officer in a 2014 standoff that stopped a cattle roundup near states' rights figure Cliven Bundy's ranch. Acting U.S. Attorney Steven Myhre (MI'-ree) told Chief U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro on Wednesday there's no question the government will retry Eric Parker and Scott Drexler.

Roland Matteson of Phoenix, Arizona says he liked the "positive attitude" the president displayed during his address to delegates in Reno on Wednesday. James Burton, a convention delegate from Wichita, Kansas who served in the Air Force, says Trump is doing a good job for veterans.
