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.

Why aren’t we demanding that Emperor Sisolak hand back his power to our elected Representatives? Why haven’t our Representatives convened and taken back their authority to govern?

Do we label it ‘propaganda,’ or is it ‘public relations’?


It recently struck me how little I have traveled or even gone out for an evening during the last 12 months. Usually, this time of year, I would be attending a trade show in California, planning a couple of weekend getaway trips, and dreaming of going to Europe for a week.

TIM BURKE: First Amendment rights in danger on major social media platforms

Freedom of expression is one of our most cherished rights. Over the weekend, the conservative social media platform, Parler, headquartered in Henderson, Nevada, was shut down when Amazon turned off the web services that hosted the platform.

DAN SCHINHOFEN: Open Letter to Nevada House Delegation

To the honorable Representatives of our State. I am taking a moment to write and plead with you to act in the best interest of America rather than your political party. I heard Speaker Pelosi say, on 60 minutes, that one reason to impeach President Trump was so that he could never run again. While your Party has been talking about election interference since 2016 and spent 40 million dollars of our money to investigate “Russian Collusion”, no collusion was found.
