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.

TIM BURKE: If it seems like prices are rising, you’re right

Is it just my perception, or is the cost of just about everything going up? Indeed, one of the most apparent increases for consumers has been the rising cost of a gallon of gas. Nationally, the Retail Gas Price (RTP) is at a current level of $2.94, up from $2.93 last week and up from $1.95 one year ago. The increase is up 0.20% from the previous week and 50.95% from one year ago.
