Letter to the Editor

Thanks for the invite

The Ovation Dancers and the Back Stage Review would like to thank Jan Jensen and Susan Sorrells for inviting us to perform for the Shoshone Days. The girls had a great time and some fun experiences they won’t forget.

I would also like to thank all of the Pahrump talent (singers) and Peter Cie (PC) and Connie for assisting with time spent with practicing and Connie thank you for putting the list together of singers; PC for bringing your equipment out and helping to make the show a success.

My name is Sharon Cahlan, I danced with the “Nevada Silver Tappers” from 1996-2010, a great team to be associated with, went on to run for Ms. Sr. Nye County, came in 2nd runner up and went on to Ms. Sr. Nevada to become Ms. Congeniality 2010 for the State. After that honor I moved on to join the “Ovation Dancers” in Las Vegas another great team and learning something new daily.

I thank BJ Hetrick-Irvin for giving me the drive to be “The Best I can Be.”

Respectfully submitted,

Sharon Cahlan

NBC News reports that President Donald Trump is “furious” over “underwhelming” attendance at his June 20 campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Only 6,200 of 19,000 seats ended up cradling Trump supporters’ butts. An optimistically pre-arranged overflow area went unused.
