Success for the senior center

A giant thank you goes out to the community of Pahrump as they joined forces to assist in making an event a wonderful success for the Senior Center.

On Saturday, June 22, Inspirations Senior Living, in partnership with Comfort Hospice Care, Desert View Hospital and Nathan Adelson Hospice put on a special Calypso Night event to benefit the Pahrump Senior Center’s Meals on Wheels program.

But as always, it goes so much deeper than that.

A special thank you goes out to the donors for all the wonderful raffle prizes and live auction prizes:

Jay from Integrity Home Health for donating the beautiful Starbucks basket along with the See’s Candy basket, Death Valley Museum for the wonderful basketfull of gift items, Walmart, Industrial Light and Power, Mountain Falls, Sweet Corner, Dina Williamson-Erdag for nine different raffle prizes (with a large price range in value), Lillian Donohue for several raffle prizes and the door prize, Desert View Hospital, Comfort Hospice Care and Nathan Adelson Hospice for their raffle prizes.

Thank you to Ron Frazier for his donations of gift certificates to Frazier Furniture and subscriptions to Pahrump Life Magazine, Betty Calgren, Sanders Family Winery and Kim Francher for their donations.

The live auction items made quite a hit. Dr. George Leaks donated an eye exam and pair of glasses, Dina donated a Front Sight gift certificate and the Ron Fellow Performance Driving School donated speed laps in a Corvette.

Inspirations provided the location for the event along with the food, which was spectacularly presented and very much appreciated. The chef and her team did an incredible job providing Calypso themed appetizers that won over everyone.

The team and Founders Club residents at Inspirations jumped in to either help or enjoy, depending on their role at the time.

It goes without saying that without the support of the attendees there would have been no event. Because of all the support of our community we raised $2,500 for the Pahrump Senior Center Meals on Wheels program.

Again, thank you to our media support and the generous people of Pahrump.

Tom Rysinski: Football’s zebra herd needs some thinning

Criticizing officials who work high school games is not something I enjoy doing. They’re not making a fortune, they put up with a lot, and you really have to love doing it to devote so much time and energy to it. And in most sports there is a shortage of them. So criticizing them is usually inappropriate.

Andrew Yang’s small but solid polling in the Democratic Party’s 2020 nomination race shows that “Universal Basic Income” has gone from a fringe idea to an idea with a foothold in the popular consciousness.

Thomas Knapp: ‘Nuance’ in politics, public policy?

In 2004, Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry called his ever-shifting position on the war in Iraq “nuanced” as a way of explaining why he was for it before he was against it and why his prescriptions for its future kept changing.
