A thank you from Rick Marshall

First, I want to thank my wife and family for their support and perseverance during this campaign. I want to thank the incredible volunteers that put in so much time and effort in my campaign. You are truly wonderful at what you do and it did not go unnoticed.

It has been said that time is our most precious resource. Once given, it cannot be returned. I am humbled by your generosity and tireless efforts. I could not even begin to put a value on the time you gave as a volunteer. Thank you from Kristin and I.

To my campaign manager Laura Billman, thank you for your tireless efforts, your humor and giving of your time.

To Rick and Grace Dugan, thank you for putting yourselves on the “front lines.” It was something I am sure we will never forget.

Thank you to the citizens of Nye County for attending the candidate nights, the debates, the events and welcoming us into your homes. Your kind words of encouragement were greatly appreciated.

Finally, congratulations to Sharon Wehrly, Nye County Sheriff-Elect.

Rick Marshall

“Old white men” running Congress?

This is for all those who agree with Geraldo Rivera and his media cronies that the Republican Congress is going to be run by “old white men.”

Here is a list of some Liberal “old white men”: Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Steny Hoyer, Tom Brokaw and Bob Schieffer.

Face it — our “old white men” gave your “old white men” a BEATIN’. So SUCK IT UP.

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.
