Senior Center thanks sheriff’s department

The sheriff’s deputies who responded to the 3:00 a.m. break-in of our senior center did an outstanding job. We watched them in action as they secured the perimeter of the building and then made entry into the center. We could see their training in action, it was almost like watching “Cops” on TV. They cleared the building and when we were allowed in we were shocked to see the damage done to the offices.

Nye County can be proud of these officers who showed the professionalism of the office. DeMeo and Marshall are doing a great job and the training officer should be commended also. Thanks again to the sheriff’s department and to the deputies who came, you folks are great.

To the low-life scum who did this, I bet your parents are real proud of you, (IF YOU KNOW WHO THEY ARE?)

Community Yard sale successful for senior center

On behalf of the Pahrump Senior Center, Inc., we would like to say “THANK YOU” to Ron and Marian Frazier (Frazier Furniture) and their staff, Karen Jackson (KNYE Radio), Lisa Holleman (Pahrump Party Supply), Brian Shoemake, Assemblyman James Oscarson, and the generosity of the community for sponsoring the “Community Yard Sale” on Oct. 24 and 25. Your generosity and willingness to help has made a tremendous difference in our efforts to provide meals for the homebound.

We would also like to give a big thank you to Cathie Martorano and Creekside Hospice for sponsoring our “Monster Mash Dance” on Saturday. A special thank you to Deanna O’Donnell and Jason Coblentz from KPVM for their great DJ skills and super choice of music, even the “chicken dance.” Everyone had a great time. This event was to raise funds for our Transportation Department, it will help keep the wheels rolling so that we can continue to transport seniors.

It’s folks like you that help make what we do a blessing and we are very grateful for your kindness and generosity.

Thank you again from the Board of Trustees, staff, and seniors of the Pahrump Senior Center.

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.”
