CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Three Nevada tribes have been awarded $112,800 in combined grants from the U.S. Department of Agriculture for rural economic development.

Fort McDermitt Paiute-Shoshone Tribe along the Nevada-Oregon line will receive $22,800 for a feasibility and marketing study on a planned family restaurant to be located on the tribe's new travel plaza.

The Ely Shoshone Tribe will use its $20,000 grant to conduct a feasibility study to identify business opportunities associated with woodcutting and pinyon pine nut collection.

The Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe will use $70,000 to complete a feasibility study and business plan for the tribe's small business enterprise and explore possible expansion of its telecommunications system. The tribe previously received $7 million in stimulus funds to lay fiber optic cable throughout the reservation.

Now that they are getting more taxpayer handouts will they still have to sell the 200 mustangs that haven't made it to the slaughter house yet?
