LAS VEGAS, Nev. ( --U.S. Senator Dean Heller is adding his voice to complaints about a federal roundup of cattle from a rural Nevada rancher.

The rancher claims longstanding grazing rights on remote public land about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas. The Republican Senator told U.S. Bureau of Land Management Chief Neil Kornze that law-abiding Nevadans should not be penalized by an "overreaching" BLM.

Bureau and National Park service officials haven't commented about criticism of the cattle roundup.

What makes you think the land IN NEVADA belongs to the Government? You believe that just because THEY tell you so? Should we change the name of our State to GOVERNMENT? Nevada's land has always belonged to the PEOPLE of Nevada. Somewhere in the past,a bureaucrat drew up a Bill giving the Government authorization to "manage" our land,and as always happens when the Government gets involved,"manage" was bent into "OWN". Utah was facing the same misunderstanding,and THEY re-claimed THEIR land. WE should be doing the same thing!
