Minden is the site for Nevada's rural summit, a chance for government and business leaders to brainstorm about the state's future.
This morning's keystone speaker was the acting under secretary of the USDA rural development.
Gilbert Gonzalez talked about how home ownership, entrepreneurship, and access to broadband can ALL bring communities together.
Other experts say Nevada needs to find its niche, and develop that...to be strong in the global economy.
The rural summit runs through tomorrow.
