Cleaning up the town, one block at a time

A special thanks goes out to the folks who made last weekend’s mini-cleanup prior to the Fall Festival happen.

We’d especially like to thank Judge Kimberly Wanker from the 5th District Court who came out with 20 Community Service volunteers to cleanup, not only on Saturday, September 21st, but also made sure the job was finished by coming back out Sunday morning as well to finish the job.

We also would like to acknowledge the help of the Nye Community Coalition’s Ameri Corps members who attended as well.

Another special thanks goes out to Pahrump Valley Disposal, for the use of their dumpsters for trash disposal, Valley Electric Association who supplied water for the participants, Home Depot for the donation of gloves and Tropical Smoothies for the coupons for free smoothies.

For a cleaner Pahrump!

Respectfully Yours,

John Pawlak

Chair, Nuclear Waste and Environmental Advisory Board

The empty seats at President Donald Trump’s Tulsa, Oklahoma, rally show that his supporters aren’t willing to put themselves at risk to attend a rally during a pandemic.

DAN SCHINHOFEN: Facts, not fear

At the end of this piece, I will list my sources, which are mostly the CDC. From the beginning of this “crisis,” we have been told that we need to listen to the experts, and that is what I have been doing. The CDC recommends using masks and wiping down surfaces, but they do not have clinical data to back this up, and they even contradict their own message in some cases.
