General aviation airport for Pahrump

Pertaining to an article in the PV Times on Wednesday, January 15, the government of Nye County has applied for a grant of more than $2 million with which to make repairs and improvements to the public use, general aviation airports in Tonopah, Beatty and Gabbs.

The combined populations of all three towns total less than 10% of the population of Pahrump.

Yet, try as we might for more than 15 years, Pahrump in unable to accomplish all of the steps necessary to build a public use, general aviation airport.

It should be obvious that such an airport would provide jobs, taxes and needed services. Why is it so hard?

TIM BURKE: If it seems like prices are rising, you’re right

Is it just my perception, or is the cost of just about everything going up? Indeed, one of the most apparent increases for consumers has been the rising cost of a gallon of gas. Nationally, the Retail Gas Price (RTP) is at a current level of $2.94, up from $2.93 last week and up from $1.95 one year ago. The increase is up 0.20% from the previous week and 50.95% from one year ago.
