Letter: Thanks to PV Cruisers, you will be missed

Thank you to all the great people in the Pahrump Valley Cruisers. You made the car shows you put on each year great. Doing a car show is an enormous undertaking for the staff and the many volunteers. All of you worked very hard each and every year to make the car shows fun for the car owners and townspeople who came to enjoy them.

Letter: Former Assembly candidate predicts long, ugly Legislature session

As you know, I ran for the Assembly here in District 36; I won Nye County. So I feel I must speak on behalf of the thousands of people who voted for me. As you know, I ran on TAXES and WATER. This year’s Legislature has approximately 25 water bills it will be voting on. Many opportunities to take the very water we rely on to live. Many of these bad water bills have come from the Nye County Water District … Gee, no surprise there.
