The Christmas holiday season has returned to Moapa Valley again. And with it comes the Old Logandale Historical and Cultural Society (OLSHACS) annual Festival of Trees. This year’s festival will be held on this Friday, November 30 and Saturday, December 1.
It was early morning when I headed to downtown Overton last weekend to find out what was so magical about Black Friday.
My first stop was at Home Hardware. The store had opened at the usual time. There were a couple of shoppers waiting for that magical moment. I was drawn to a young lady who was excitedly examining a remote control helicopter toy. When I questioned Kayla Hinton about the recipient I was told that she was getting it for her husband Andrew who is currently stationed in Afghanistan.
ohn Yuspa, Founder and Chairman of Honor Flight Nevada, will be speaking at the Mesquite Veterans Center on Sunday, December 2 at 1:00 pm. Yuspa will be there to talk to Veterans and their families about the Honor Flight NV Program.
The main purpose of the Honor Flight Program is to assure that all veterans are able to view the WWII Memorial, as well as other military memorials, in Washington, D.C. The trip is for three days and two nights at no cost to the veteran.
The local Radio Shack, located within True Value/Home Hardware in Overton, has made some changes to its business. In September they store moved its inventory out of the room located to the rear of the store, and put it on the shelves within True Value itself.
Graph-X owner, Roxanne LaBeau recently opened the doors of her downtown Overton business to young crafters. For six weeks during November and December Holiday Craft Classes are being offered at the little pink house in Overton to those who wish to discover the magic of making their own ornaments, wreathes, stockings, candles, bells and cookies.
No one asked me but… The Hostess Bakery Company galted the Baker’s Union and its 18,500 members.
Those of you who are familiar with Ayn Rand’s classic Atlas Shrugged know the main question in the book is: Who is John Galt? Stand by for a spoiler alert. John Galt is the man who organized the withdrawal of all the men in society who have the money and who have the knowledge of how to run a successful business. This left only the inept government to keep the country’s economy going.
The Moapa Valley Library staff would like to express our sincerest gratitude to The Friends of Overton Library who have been working hard all year maintaining our book sale.
Many thanks also go to the community for donating gently used books, magazines, movies, and music CDs. These items are for sale year-round in the library’s entryway.
I am appalled by the last two articles written by Larry Moses (No One Asked Me But..: Progress November 7 and November 14, 2012). I am surprised that you actually published them in the paper. Moses’ articles are nothing more than gutter trash intended to insult everybody that doesn’t see things his way. While he can have his opinions, needlessly insulting people is out of line.
Residents of Moapa Valley showed their generosity on Saturday morning, November 17, as the Boy Scouts from local Troops went through town picking up food for their needy neighbors.
Scouting for Food is a national event sponsored by Boy Scouts of America but is designed to help local people in need.
