Letter: Former resident wishes Pahrump and library the best

A dear friend, Misty, sent me a photocopy of a letter to the editor from Susan Wonderly, director of the Pahrump Community Library.

Fellow citizens, permit me to say how highly I esteem you. I consider it a privilege and honor to be a Pahrumpian.

Please accept my personal best wishes, and the fond farewell of a fellow sojourner as we come, so sadly, to a fork in the road. Upon departing from you, dear friends, I say to you in passing, try to figure out a way to provide, if possible, the same Inter-Library loan service to Nye County residents as is offered to Clark County residents.

Best wishes to all,

Albert Kaplan

The city won’t be enforcing the governor’s edicts. Those edicts, mayor Paul Creighton told local businesses, are “between you and the state of California.”

STEVE SEBELIUS: Recalls are hard — and they should be

Recalls of public officials in Nevada are rarely successful, which is the way it should be, since recall proponents are asking voters to undo the results of a legitimate election.
