27, 1996, Barbwire began a six-month investigation
into the labyrinthine intrigues of the University and Community
College System of Nevada (UCCSN), now called the Nevada System
of Higher Education (NSHE). At the suggestion of chess
grandmaster and author Larry Evans, most of the 1996 installments,
as well as one involving university issues in the following year,
were entered by the Sparks
Tribune in two categories of the 1997 Pulitzer Prize competition.
