Thank you Best Western for allowing us to use the RV Clubhouse for our workshop, we appreciate your generosity.

Thank you to all the media who publishes and broadcasts our events, we always need and appreciate your help.

2014 Relay for Life Committee

Two Questions

One — Why do our town managers and town boards ignore the fact that the people of Pahrump have voted down the airport more than once? It shows what they think of us as voters. They need to stop wasting money on studies.

Question two — Why don’t they see of they can get a crosswalk put in somewhere on the long stretch of road by Saddle West. It is needed.

Thank you.

Sandra J. Harp
