Moose lodge and seniors thank community

We are so appreciative of the support from our community of the efforts put forth by the Pahrump Senior Center to assist the seniors of our community. Your support of the fundraiser for the Meals on Wheels program was outstanding as we were able to generate a total of $1568 to help fund this program.

Once again, thank you to the citizens of Pahrump for your generosity and willingness to share with those in need.

Cal Greenleaf Sr.

Moose Lodge 808 Community Service Chairman


Golf tournament fundraiser a great success

Wow! What a successful golf tournament we had and it’s all thanks to the players, sponsors, merchants, donations and volunteers.

The Nevada Silver Tappers and Ms. Senior Golden Years USA, Inc., extend their very special thanks to everyone who participated.

So much for ‘call your senator’!

On November 18, 2013 and a few times since then I informed Senator Dean Heller’s office that I have not had a Social Security payment since February 2013.

To date (March 22, 2014), his office has done nothing about it.

Thanks to Silver Tappers and Golden Years

I want to thank all my friends and my family for their love and support in regards to my husband Kjell on his passing on the 24th of March.

Special thanks go to Senior Golden Years and the Nevada Silver Tappers. Please support the Senior Golden Years Pageant on June 7th at the Saddle West.

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.
