"It is prevalent. There are gangs here. It is different than it was a few years ago when you could isolate it down to a couple of gangs or a few rivals with various offshoots. There are a lot of different gangs now. We have had some violent crimes over the last six months that have been gang-related, so that is a concern I've always had." Chris Hicks, Washoe County district attorney
"Should the state release it? Absolutely. I am a firm believer in releasing the information to the public. If (former state Sen. Mark) Manendo really did that (sexually harass women at the Legislature) and they fold that in their investigation, why shouldn't the public know?" Washoe Commissioner Marsha Berkbigler

"I think it says a lot about his (Laxalt's) thought process and I don't understand it. I don't understand how he could come up with such a different conclusion from everyone else that were there or what his reasoning might have been."

"I would like to offer that if the Bundys and their fellow insurrectionist were a different skin color perhaps, or a different religion, that they would have been slaughtered indiscriminately. So I think the federal law enforcement authorities showed incredible restraint, given the fact that there was a militia pointing automatic, semiautomatic weapons at them. They chose not to engage and de-escalated that situation, which prevented an blood bath. And I think they should be lauded for that." Patrick Donnelly, Nevada director of the Center for Biological Diversity
"We as developers, particularly in the Midtown area, we look at taking down motels that are really blighted properties. But there is a working poor that we have to be mindful of and be compassionate and careful about their displacement." Par Tolles, Reno developer
"So we are kind of in the early stages of what is a very exciting expansionary cycle for Reno. And each step we take, the more economic development there is. And certainly, a casino is an entertainment option, and as the city gets larger, more tourism comes. And as more people live in the city, the airport can then expand and add more direct service." John Decree, Union Gaming
