Adam Bradley: Walking 500 Miles

If you're driving down the highway, you might see a man walking with ski poles and a backpack (with his wet socks pinned to it).  Chances are it's Adam Bradley.  Adam is a record-breaking fastpacker.  He walks 500-mile stretches at a time, through some of America's most remote terrain.  He even hiked Nevada's renewable energy transmission line (known as "SWIP") to see its impact on the environment.  Adam tells us the secrets to walking 40 miles each day, and how to survive with only what he carries on his body.

KNPR's State of Nevada

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada lawmakers are reviewing a bill that would have an appointed panel redraw voting districts instead of the Legislature.

Republican Assemblyman Lynn Stewart presented AB 252 on Thursday to the Assembly Legislative Operations and Elections Committee.

The bill would create a five-person commission to present redistricting options to the Legislature the year after a census.  Majority and minority parties would appoint four members and the state's chief justice would appoint the fifth.

The Legislature would be able to change or discard the commission's recommended districts. Commission members wouldn't be allowed to run for state or local office for five years after approval.

 Democratic Assemblyman Elliot Anderson said he was concerned the proposal could draw the state Supreme Court into a redistricting process that's ended with court action in the past.
