LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Setting the record straight

Mr. Lacy stated the Nye County well is on Pahrump Fairgrounds property, which is not correct. It is on a piece of land next to the fairgrounds land and has little or no water rights to it. In 2007 the Pahrump Town Board purchased over a million dollars in water rights for the fairgrounds property when I was on the town board.

Mr. Lacy makes it sound like this is only a county-raceway project. Again this is not correct. It is my understanding the deal is between the Spring Mountain Raceway, the county and the town.

Mr. Lacy needs to remember the town owns the fairgrounds property, not the county, and until the Supreme Court rules on the legitimacy of the ballot issue for making the Pahrump Town Board an “advisory” board later this year, the Town of Pahrump will continue to own the property, yet Mr. Lacy acts like it is already the county’s property.

Mr. Lacy needs to learn to be a team player and remember that there is no “I” in the word team.

Is this ‘cartoon existence’ really living?

As I was binge watching the last season of “The Blacklist”, I was surprised it only had 19 episodes. What was stranger was a few minutes into the 19th episode they cut in with cast and crew telling us that they were in the middle of filming when COVID-19 restrictions kicked in. After making sure to tell us to be safe and other platitudes, they then went back to the show, but half of it was cartoon and the other half live action.
