The 2014 Relay for Life Committee would like to thank Jack Sanders for hosting our Kick-Off Party for the 2014 Relay at his Sanders Family Winery.

Thank you Johnny V for opening and closing the party with your awesome Elvis act. Reva Braun, Kathy Butkovich, and Laurie Wall were honored for their fundraising efforts, raising over $1,000 each, thank you ladies.

Thank you committee members for all the goodies you brought to snack on. Alan Foshee read a very moving poem written expressly for Relay, thank you.

Thank you Cindy Moody for your moving testimony of cancer survivorship and thank you survivors and caregivers for attending the Party.

Thank you PV Times, The Mirror, KNYE radio, and KPVM TV station, we couldn’t put on events without all your help. A big thank you to Shannon Moore, our Staff Partner, and Chanda Wieland, Relay’s Event Chair, for putting on such a successful Kick-Off Party.

The 2014 Relay will be May 16 &17 at Petrack Park.

KNYE Radioathon a huge success

On Tuesday November 19, KNYE Radio with Karen Jackson held a Radiothon to benefit RSVP Programs. The response has been marvelous, so many people in our community called in and pledged monetary support to help us keep our local programs alive.

A very special thank you to Karen Jackson, Kay &Everett, Butch and the many, many good people of our community who want to help us help others.

We have so many seniors in our community, some of whom helped to build this town. Some of whom may now need a helping hand. They live here, support the businesses in town and deserve our support in turn. Hats off to the people of Pahrump for the wonderful comments, the offers of assistance and the monetary support for RSVP programs.

Thank you to Matt Ward, Editor of PV Times, Selwyn Harris, reporter for PV Times for the write-ups and articles that help to keep people aware of the needs of the community.

Thank you all.

The stay-at-home order has robbed our young adults who graduate high school this year of significant milestones that mark their passage into adulthood.

Ready or not lockdown season is coming to an end

On May 15, city officials declared Atwater, California a “sanctuary city.” Not for undocumented immigrants, but for businesses and churches who choose to ignore governor Gavin Newsom’s COVID-19-related shutdown orders. The city won’t be enforcing the governor’s edicts. Those edicts, mayor Paul Creighton told local businesses, are “between you and the state of California.”

STEVE SEBELIUS: Recalls are hard — and they should be

Recalls of public officials in Nevada are rarely successful, which is the way it should be, since recall proponents are asking voters to undo the results of a legitimate election.
