Even though Leadership Nevada graduates from this year are trying to bring Nevada a new motto — Nevada Nice, a recent clipping from the June 2018 Readers Digest magazine proves it’s hard to shake old sayings. On page 33 of the magazine, under the heading, “Small-town slogans that will have you saying, ‘I’m going there!’” is a box that says, “Welcome to Nevada, Iowa, 26th-Best Small Town in America.” Sandy Dittmer shared her issue with us. She was surprised to open that page and see Nevada on it, along with other mentions that included Gas, Kan.; Cherryfield, Maine; Gettysburg, S.D.; Weed, Calif. and San Andreas, Calif.
