ELKO, NEVADA WESTERN GALLERY The old and the new West mix In Elko. Craig Youngblood's piercing stare (clockwise from upper left) harks back to cowboy pictures of an earlier era. Cody Schroeder, 18, defensive lineman for the Elko Indians, may be the smallest starting high school nose tackle in Nevada at 5 feet 7 inches tall. Jay Wicks, 63, a retired upholsterer, once told his wife he wished he could live as a prospector, roaming the mountains on a mule. )ohn Wright demonstrates a bedroll and a range tepee-old-fashioned but still practical gear sold at J.M.
