Move Over Vegas, Here Comes Fernley

Clark County's growth supremacy is no more.

Census figures for 2004-2005 show that three of the nation's Top
10 fastest growing counties are in rural Nevada.

Lyon County, paced by rapid growth in Fernley, was third fastest
growing in the country. It's the fourth year in a row that Lyon has
led all counties in Nevada.

More than six of every 10 new Lyon County residents between July 2004 and July 2005 moved into Fernley, according to estimates by State Demographer Jeff Hardcastle.
