Letters to the Editor

Thank you Amy Riches, for standing against incorporation. I moved here because it was a county in 2010, and I enjoy living in a county versus a city.

I lived in a county in California, which converted to a city and found that I had increases in gas, sales and vehicle taxes to pay for a mayor, commissioner and city police (all union), to pay for the new city.

If Holecheck, who was only acquired for present board views, wants to help, tell her to go back to San Fran. She is not needed.

Also, I remind the people of Pahrump we are here to be free of excess regulations and that the members of the present town board will be in line for the positions of mayor, commissioners and other key places in city government and will not lose their jobs, only increase their pay.

Additionally, I do not want a roundabout on a major Pahrump highway, a theme park or a dump site for radioactive stuff (unless placed at Yucca Moutain safely — or any other type of dumping that other states try to place in our county.

THOMAS KNAPP: 1984 alive in 2021: We’ve taken on doing Big Brother’s job for him

George Orwell’s classic dystopia “1984” describes a future (as of 1949, the year of its publication) in which a totalitarian state attempts to control both present and future by modifying the past. The novel’s protagonist, Winston Smith, works at the Ministry of Truth, “rectifying” past news accounts:
