In a column by Bruce DelValle published last week in The Hill came the revelation that Nevada is again embroiled in yet another troglodyte fight against technology (remember the Uber brouhaha last session?) in pursuit of “crony” capitalism …

This letter is in response to Tim Burke’s article in the February 22 edition of your newspaper. While I am in agreement with him regarding some of the signs that dominate the Highway 160 corridor, large commercial signs of this type dot the landscape of many roadways leading into towns like ours throughout the country.
Every new administration is full of a plethora of policy priorities.
Back in 1968, ABC launched a new crime drama series called “The Mod Squad” which featured three undercover cops – “one black, one white and one blonde.” This year conservatives have their own version of the Mod Squad hitting the streets and airwaves.
On Feb. 8, a group of Latino men was leaving an overnight hypothermia shelter at Rising Hope Mission Church in Alexandria, Virginia, when they were surrounded by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers, arrested and taken away in vans.
Nineteen years ago this month, President Bill Clinton was trying to lure the United States into a war in Iraq because he claimed, Saddam Hussein was trying to develop weapons of mass destruction. He sent teams of administration officials out around the country to sell his proposed war.
Feb. 7: Muhammad Ali, Jr., returning to the U.S. from a speaking engagement in Jamaica, is detained for two hours at Florida’s Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and questioned about his name and religious beliefs.
Now we are beginning to see what $5.35 million gives us on a state highway – not very much, and certainly a poorly-thought-out project.
How proud can we be of our newly elected state legislators? Working so hard to pass “minimum wage” laws for Nevada.
The resignation of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. White House internal disputes that stall policy decisions. Even a mini-crisis involving North Korea.
From time to time I write about organizations that help veterans, and I usually note that there are so many such groups, perhaps they tend to overlap. In fact, there is often much overlap, but each major group does have a positive specialty of some type. This month I wish to honor the Paralyzed Veterans of America, Nevada Chapter.
Nevada Democrats have gone bonkers. Not only are they suffering from a combination of PESD (Post-Election Stress Disorder) and TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome), but apparently they’ve been caught up in some kind of time warp.
What do visitors first see when they drive into Pahrump from Las Vegas on Highway 160?
Thank you to the Show Committee and to the many Shadow Mountain Quilters volunteers who worked long hours to make the Pins & Needles Quilt & Needlework Show such a beautiful and fun event.
Craig Deare, appointed by Donald Trump a month ago to head the National Security Council’s western hemisphere division, was fired Feb. 17.
If I am to believe the deluge of calls to my cell phone this week I have some real problems that need to be addressed.
If you’re a conservative like me, your knee-jerk reaction to any suggestion of changing our presidential elections to a national popular vote isn’t just no, but … “Heck (or stronger), no!” After all, Al Gore and Hillary Clinton both won the popular vote but lost the elections under the current system, right?
A dear friend, Misty, sent me a photocopy of a letter to the editor from Susan Wonderly, director of the Pahrump Community Library.
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.
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.

U.S. Rep. Mark Amodei of Nevada introduced legislation in the last Congress to give certain select lands to Nevada, and is expected to introduce a similar measure in the new Congress.
