What little creature can bring together miners, enviromentalists, off-road racers, and prostitutes? A toad. The Amargosa toad, specifically. No, this isn't a fairy tale... but it's not everyday that groups from opposite ends of the political spectrum rally behind a toad. We find out why this little green guy is causing such a stir in the ponds outside Las Vegas.

I enjoyed participating in the panel discussion. Hope it was informative. We here at STORM-OV, and within the confines of oasis valley are realizing how important it is to get our message out. Unifying people over a common cause
stirs their passion, causing commitment, resulting in success.
I praise everyone from the top to bottom who has helped, participated, and most of all trusted that this level of communication could exist.David Spicer –Nov 24, 2010 11:26:32 AM
