What are Amargosa’s

flag-flying policies?

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

I have seen the school in operation on Nevada Day. But, certainly not on MLK Day. It is strange what Amargosa Valley feels is important.

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.

Ready or not lockdown season is coming to an end

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.”

STEVE SEBELIUS: Recalls are hard — and they should be

Recalls of public officials in Nevada are rarely successful, which is the way it should be, since recall proponents are asking voters to undo the results of a legitimate election.
