Mask Out Cancer event

Thank you letter for

Mask Out Cancer event

I would like to thank everyone who attended the Relay for Life Mask out Cancer fundraiser at the Pahrump Nugget on Tuesday, Feb.28, 2017. This fundraiser was also the kick-off party for the 2017 Relay for Life season, which will be held on Oct. 7, 2017 at Petrack Park, from noon until midnight. All survivors are invited to a free Survivor Lunch and the first lap around the track is reserved for the survivors.

A big thank you to all the Relay Committee members and volunteers who manned all the tables and brought all the food and donated water, including American Family Insurance. Thank you Pahrump Nugget and banquet manager Jason for all your help. Thank you Downtown Michael Brown for speaking about melanoma and early detection. Thank you Twilight Productions for providing the entertainment. Thanks to all the media for your support. Over $500 was raised for the 2017 Relay for Life.

Relay has several upcoming fundraisers, including the bowl-a-thon at the Nugget, Christmas in July karaoke with Santa, Paint the Hubb Purple, Bark for Life, and various car washes and bake sales.

For further information about Relay for Life call Event Chair Chanda Wieland at 616-902-0629 or go to relayforlife.org/pahrumpnv and register for this year’s Relay.

Thank you,

Marian Maxfield

DAN SCHINHOFEN: The bottom line

Can we get just one honest politician to stand up and say, “I think we may have overreacted to this whole COVID-19 thing”?

DAN SCHINHOFEN: The bottom line

We all have one. Some people try to act like they don’t, but each of us has a line which we will not cross. For some it is based on religious faith or ideals. For others it may be something our father or mother instilled in us. Still others may never have given it a thought, but sometime during this short life we will all be confronted with a choice where we will find out just how low we can go.

DEBRA J. SAUNDERS: Joe Biden meets the press

Former Vice President Joe Biden held his first news conference in 89 days, but the press missed a golden opportunity to ask him some real questions.

DEBRA J. SAUNDERS: Trump voters not dying to see Trump

The empty seats at President Donald Trump’s Tulsa, Oklahoma, rally show that his supporters aren’t willing to put themselves at risk to attend a rally during a pandemic.

DAN SCHINHOFEN: Facts, not fear

At the end of this piece, I will list my sources, which are mostly the CDC. From the beginning of this “crisis,” we have been told that we need to listen to the experts, and that is what I have been doing. The CDC recommends using masks and wiping down surfaces, but they do not have clinical data to back this up, and they even contradict their own message in some cases.
