Thank you for Youth Arts program support

The Pahrump Arts Council (PAC) extends a grateful thank you to our community for its support of our Youth Arts program. The recent one-week residencies of the Missoula Children’s Theatre and Todd Green, instrumentalist, offered opportunities for the youth in Pahrump and their families, to experience singing, dancing, acting and unique music from around the world.

The Missoula Children’s Theatre’s production of “Aladdin,” gave more than 50 students the opportunity to learn a complete musical play in one week and to present it in two “packed house” performances at the Pahrump Valley High School auditorium.

Todd Green presented his unique blend of music and cultural information to hundreds of students in four Pahrump schools with an evening performance for the community.

Special thanks to the Nye County School District, superintendent Dale Norton for his support of the arts; school principals Ken Weaver, Kyle Lindberg, Chris Brockman, Tim Wombaker for allowing time in busy school schedules to support arts activities and custodial support; Nye Communities Coalition executive director, Stacy Smith, and YouthWerks program coordinator Andrew Gonzales and his crew, Nathan Height, Austin McGuire, Jesse Tarver, Corey Remington, Mitchell Robinson, Ryan Martinez; PAC Youth Arts program coordinator Selway Mulkey and Pam Mulkey; Cahlan West Law Office; Linda Kass; Rodney Camacho; Deanna O’Donnell; Pahrump Valley Rotary; Pahrump Events Advisory Board; Nevada Arts Council; National Endowment for the Arts; to our local media outlets for public service announcements, and to the PAC Board of Directors, for recognizing the value of arts education for children and acting upon it to seek and provide financial support.

Feed your kids the arts. They will ask for more.

Loretta Lindell, president

Richard Karpel: Time to put teeth into Nevada’s public records law

Unbeknownst to Nevada officials, the state has been conducting a natural experiment in public policy for many years now: What would happen if one of the state’s two main open-government laws had an enforcement mechanism and criminal penalties for government officials who violate the law, and the other one left malfeasors completely unmolested?
