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.

Tim Burke: Census stakes high when it comes to communities, politics

This past weekend marked the Labor Day holiday and the traditional end to summer. It also means that we are inching forward on bringing 2019 to a close and the beginning of 2020. 2020 is a census year and that will have far-reaching effects on communities and in politics.
