Thank you to motorcycle riding Santa Clauses last weekend
There was a haunting rumble going through the streets of the Pahrump Valley on Sunday.
Motorcycles with back-up vehicles going door to door all day delivering Christmas gifts and food to children and families that are unable to do it for themselves.
It was a cold, sunny day and the sounds on a normal day in the desert carry like voices across a lake, you can not live here and be unaware that these wonderful people are spending their time making those more unfortunate than most a beautiful, wonderful December day.
It IS a fabulous sound.
Yes, there is a Santa Claus and he and his elves are doing magical things today that will make wonderful memories for many.
I don’t own or ride a motorcycle but wish I did on Sunday.
God Bless The Tribe Motorcycle Club.
‘Harley World’ debacle is Town Board’s final, lasting legacy
Board member Dolan’s denial of involvement in the Contour/Holbrook “Harley World” debacle is laughable if not downright sad. It is certainly a comment on the detachment from reality this Board suffers and clearly a demonstration of Dolan’s arrogance toward the Pahrump public.
While Dolan may believe a former Board is responsible for wasting almost $400,000 of public money, (which he swore to protect) Dolan has been intimately involved in public and private discussions concerning this project’s matters, openly approved contracts for the same, and he and Waters sat quietly on occasion and allowed the fleecing to continue. Sometimes the evidence of your sin is in what you don’t say or do.
Tom Waters, Board Chairperson Kulkin, and Bill Dolan are all guilty of promoting and defending “Harley World” in its various phases and to deny that fact insults the intelligence of the Pahrump electorate. How many times did Harley sit in his bully pulpit and belittle the “Peanut Gallery” when they voiced disagreement with another contract for Contour/Holbrook or another $200,000 in expenditures?
How many times did Harley say we were short-sighted and negative, and just “didn’t see the big picture”? How many times did Harley suggest with a smirk it was “time to take out the trash”? Did Mr. “I don’t know … not me” Dolan or Dr. Waters ever speak one word of dissent?
Did Dolan or Waters ever speak one word of support for the public? Did they ever speak one word of caution about all the money being approved for this stupid idea? We all know the answer to every one of those questions is a resounding NO !
“No more” is what the Pahrump electorate said to a continuation of the arrogance and “big heads” prominent with this Town Board and the likes of Dolan, Kulkin and Waters. The end of their reign draws near as a result of the decision to dissolve the Town Board.
Despite Dolan’s denials, Waters’ silence, and Kulkin’s insults, the Contour/Holbrook “Harley World” debacle and the dissolution of the Pahrump Town Board is their legacy and theirs alone. Since the three of them took such pleasure in hammering me when I objected to spending money on this nonsense, I’m not ashamed to say “I told them so.”
Good riddance to them all. Now it’s time to take out the trash!
