Neighborhood Watch is effective

Pahrump is a unique place around the world. Hot summers and moderate winters. Mountain rains and dust all the time. Many retired vets and older people who want to live out their lives in peace. My point is that we are vulnerable to theft and home invasion. My house was hit by kids who were caught and will pay the price, however I only got part of my belongings back. I never believed it could happen to me. Since that time I know of six other burglaries and two attempts.

The Neighborhood Watch program works. Go outside and look around maybe just a few minutes a week, along with the people around you. Everyone wins if one knows their neighbors. If you see something out of the ordinary, take a picture with a phone if possible and call the police. If your car key has a panic button on it, put it by your bed and hit it if you hear a strange noise around your house.

Again, my point is that we must look after one another.

If you feel like you would like to try, leave me a message. It doesn’t matter what part of the valley you live in, let’s take care of us.

Many double standards prevail in political circles

DAN SCHINHOFEN: Open Letter to Nevada House Delegation

To the honorable Representatives of our State. I am taking a moment to write and plead with you to act in the best interest of America rather than your political party. I heard Speaker Pelosi say, on 60 minutes, that one reason to impeach President Trump was so that he could never run again. While your Party has been talking about election interference since 2016 and spent 40 million dollars of our money to investigate “Russian Collusion”, no collusion was found.

Gov. Steve Sisolak shouldn’t vaccinate felons before senior citizens. Even a casual look at the coronavirus death numbers makes this obvious.

Reader states mural not good use of taxpayer money

DAN SCHINHOFEN: How fragile it all is

If we have not agreed on or learned anything this past year, we should all agree that our freedoms are very fragile. Look at how quickly we conceded our God-given rights to freely exercise our religion, or our right to own property, as in owning a small business. With just a few words from our elected governor, and a declaration here and a directive there we were told it was not safe for us to sing in church. We were directed to close down our business that we spent money, and years of sweat building up to support our families, because we were not deemed “essential”.
