Alan, that would introduce inconsistency, since for Mountain time,
represented by Denver it says

"Nevada border (Jackpot, Owyhee, and Mountain City)"

and then West Wendover wouldn't be covered anywhere.

I suggest to keep "most of Nevada", but to amend the comments for the
Nevada part that is on Mountain time, so the exceptions are only
mentioned at one place.
