Lincoln Communities Action Team reported 1,395 followers on their Facebook page, a 33 percent increase over last month. Twitter had 843 followers.
The figures were released during the Oct. 11 meeting of LCAT members under president Marcia Hurd.
The LCAT website was down on the number of visitors by about 48 percent from September, but that was attributed mainly to the fact that those coming to the Park-to-Park Pedal event Oct. 8 had already registered. The event had 190 riders this year.
Nonetheless, the number of web visitors was reported to be 21 percent higher than what it had been in 2015.
Most of the visits, 41 percent, came from the Las Vegas area, but 12.5 percent from Los Angeles and 8 percent from Utah.
In other news, it was reported that additional Nevada Council on Tourism funds are being obligated for an aerial drone video project Rob Pearman plans to do. The videos will feature the five state parks in Lincoln County.
State Parks Interpreter Dawn Andone said she has submitted a grant request for Round 2 of NCOT funding.
Progress on the Hiko billboard sign is still pending, but should be completed by the end of the year. The sign, at the junction of U.S. Highway 93 and State Route 375, has faded so much it is unreadable now.
Coming up next on the LCAT calendar is the opening of the Cookie Crumb Trail and the Gingerbread Fun Run this weekend, the historic Caliente train depot Christmas lighting Dec. 3, the Community Christmas Concert at the Caliente Methodist Church Dec. 9, and the Bella Voce Choir Dec. 21-22. Location of the choir concert is most likely at the Neldon Mathews Auditorium.
Also, it was reported Terry Phillips is planning to move the clothing section, and other things, of the Mountain Mercantile store across the railroad tracks to a building next to the Dolan and Edwards Insurance office.
The next meeting LCAT is scheduled for Jan. 10, 2017 and will include the election of officers.
