Letters to the Editor

Thanks to everyone for helping make the 9th annual “Walk the Rock” cancer benefit during Jim Butler Days such a great success. All proceeds will go to help cancer patients in Nye and Esmeralda counties with gas cards and rooms as they travel out of town for treatments. This year was our most successful ever — enabling us to help more people than in past years.

Our sincere gratitude goes to all of our sponsors, individuals and businesses, who sponsored our t-shirts or donated prizes; and to all of our 100-plus registrants and walkers. You all played an integral part in making this fundraiser a fantastic success.

A very special “thank you” to Fred and Nancy Cline and the management at the Mizpah Hotel for allowing the “Walk” to be staged at the hotel. The entire hotel staff bent over backwards to assist wherever they could to help make this event the success it was.

And last, but certainly not least, our appreciation to Sheriff Tony DeMeo who arranged for the police escort.
