Thank you Denise for bringing and serving the cake, we all appreciated it. Thank you everyone who helped out and thank you Lance Schultz for providing the chairs.

Thank you from Sharon Wehrly

I want to thank everyone for the opportunities I have had to stand before you, the voters and answer your questions and address your concerns during my campaign for Nye County Sheriff.

I have been honored to have participated in three debates with my opponent in which we each had the opportunity to present our philosophies and future goals. I have spoken to voters during Meet and Greets and personal interaction.

I have enjoyed meeting each and every one and have rekindled old friendships as I traveled about our beautiful county.

The news media has been a blessing, providing debate coverage to every household in newspapers, over television, radio and Internet.

My message is one of respect. I believe the office of sheriff must provide the Nye County residents and visitors with ethical, honest, transparent, equal, unbiased protection and law enforcement throughout our county.

Please give me the opportunity to serve you as your sheriff by giving me your vote on November 4, 2014. Thank you.

NCLEA clarifies Wehrly endorsement

Please accept this as a response to the letter to the editor regarding the Juvenile Probation Officers Association.

There was no mistake made by including Juvenile Probation Officers as members of NCLEA in the endorsement of Sharon Wehrly for Nye County sheriff. There are Juvenile Probation Officers who are dues-paying members of the NCLEA and participated in the vote.

While there could be some confusion because some Juvenile Probation Officers have formed their own association, the legality of that association is in question and is currently in front of the appropriate legal body to decide the matter. Nevertheless, the Nye County Juvenile Probation Association was not included in the endorsement and the endorsement spoke clearly that it was simply the NCLEA. The NCLEA has never attempted to speak on behalf of another association.

The endorsement came from members of the NCLEA, which includes dues-paying Juvenile Probation Officers. As such, the public endorsement of Sharon Wehrly by the NCLEA was accurate and needs no further clarification.

We encourage anyone who may have a question to contact us.

Trick-or-treating teens out of control

What did you do, rent a bus and drop off your kids?

It was unreal the number of high schoolers we had on Halloween night. Shame on each of these parents! They were screaming, swearing, stealing, etc. This took place in the Mountain Falls area. These persons were too old for Halloween, no costumes, just pillowcases.

Get your children in line. I quit Halloween before high school because I was too old for that kid stuff. The crap that went on in this area was uncalled for.

Next year I will have a sign out saying this: 13 YEARS AND YOUNGER WELCOME – NO COSTUME NO CANDY!!! Be forewarned parents. I will call the police if in this area again I see stealing from other younger children.

Roundup will remove 2,000 wild horses near Tonopah

Severe drought has contributed to problems with food and water supplies for the horses, and land management officials say the range can’t support them.

Maybe America is not past the tipping point

The responsible people of this country want responsible, considered and coordinated action from those we elect and the courage to do what is right.

We’ll miss you, ‘Madam’

The local legacy of Heidi Fleiss is one of reinvention and inspiration.
