What are Amargosa’s

flag-flying policies?

How come Amargosa Valley did not fly the flag at half-staff?

Veterans cemetery in Boulder City performs weekly interments

In case you didn’t know, there are military “interments” at the Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Boulder City every week on Thursdays. It touches my heart to see all of the veterans who pass away with no family to care. These interments are handled by the several veteran organizations that get together to ensure these veterans are NOT forgotten.

Not many people in Pahrump are aware of this and I’m sending this to you to help spread the word about what the DAV, MOPH, VFW, and other veteran organizations are doing.

Please contact Dan Peterson, Commander of MOPH Chapter 730 in Henderson, at 702-449-4491 or =N:E= for questions or comments.

Dan Schinhofen on border issue: Migrants or an invasion?

One of the congresswomen from New York, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, said something the other day that embarrassed me and I found to be over the top. She compared the holding facilities, that are being overwhelmed at our southern border, to concentration camps.

Dennis Myers: Understanding the arrogance of computer people

I’ve had contact with a lot of computer people over the years, so when I saw a Quora discussion on “Why are a lot of programmers so arrogant?” I tuned in and read comments like this: “Because they ‘believe’ that they are smart and special, but they never realize for a sec that being able to write code does not give them the privilege to be rude to other human beings.”
