I would think that "People from Nevada" or "People from New York" would suffice. Otherwise it could create such things as "People from Ottumwa, Iowa" and every other small town.

History KTVO signed-on November 21, 1955 airing an analog signal on VHF channel 3. It was a primary CBS affiliate, although its single market (media market) status allowed it to cherry-pick the most popular programming from NBC and ABC. The station was founded by Jim Conroy. Many people thought the Ottumwa (Ottumwa, Iowa) Kirksville DMA was too small to support a television station but Conroy persevered believing Southeastern Iowa and Northeastern Missouri would be proud to have a locally-based station. This was not a surprise given that KTVO was the area's only channel until 1986 when KOIA-TV (now Fox (Fox Broadcasting Company) affiliate KYOU-TV) took to-the-air.

An accident prevented his sailing with his regiment to Brazil, and after a visit to Flanders, where an uncle offered to secure a commission for him, he went to England in c.1740 50. He had harbored a secret desire to travel to England, and had studied the English language prior to his arrival in London. In 1752 he became tutor to the sons of Thomas and Susanna Hill, a wealthy Shropshire family, who spent part of the year in London.

Between 1927 and 1928 Mosconi toured Latin America telling and teaching the authorities about the Argentine experience with regards to fossil fuels, campaigning for an integration of efforts in the matter of petroleum as a resource. Mosconi was the major proponent of a national policy that put natural resources at the service of economic, industrial and social development of the nation. He defended nationalization (Nationalization of oil supplies) of these resources, an absolute fiscal monopoly on surveyance and exploitation, the need for Latin American countries to agree on common actions in this matter, and the passing of resource-related legislation that was advantageous to the interests of the national states. During this trip, Mosconi met with Lázaro Cárdenas, who would nationalize oil in Mexico (Expropiación petrolera) ten years later, and General Elías Plutarco.
