Several non-profit organizations in Moapa Valley are relieved and grateful to be receiving a total of $97,570 in grants from Clark County for the 2012-2013 fiscal year. The Clark County Outside Agency Grants (OAG) were approved by the board of Commissioners on Tuesday, May 21.
Students at Moapa Valley High School celebrated M Week last week with a number of creative dress-up days at school and plenty of after-school activities in the evenings.
Monday opened the week with high-schoolers showing off their favorite sport team attire in a Sports Day.
Another attempt was begun in Congress last week to place the vast Gold Butte complex under additional federal protection and to institute new federal wilderness in the area.
On Thursday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev) introduced legislation that would create a new National Conservation Area out of what has become known as Gold Butte: the broad, arid region lying south of Bunkerville, between the Overton arm of Lake Mead and the Arizona border.
Shave and a haircut…2 bits!
All you country folk can head over to the Leather and Lace Salon and Boutique this Saturday June 1 at 6:00 pm, for the grand opening!

As the school year draws to a close, students will be left with some time on their hands. They can fill some of that time with the numerous activities available at the Moapa Valley Library. Magicians, singers, and storytellers are just a few examples of the great entertainment in store this summer at the library.
Grant Bowler Elementary School third graders had a busy week last week. They received visits from many famous historical figures like Ronald Reagan, Rosa Parks, Jesse Owens, Jackie Robinson, Eleanor Roosevelt and many more.
No one asked me but… The Clark County School District stepped up and selected a new Superintendent of Schools. Our School Board Representative Chris Garvey was instrumental in collecting the votes necessary to make a common-sense selection.
The President of the Board Carolyn Edwards thought the decision was too fast for her. She would have liked more time to vet Pat Skorkowsky.
I have intended to write in for some time about Dr. Moses’ articles. The May 22 “No One Asked Me But…,” and the one published on May 8, really put things where they need to be. I admire your patriotic, and largely libertarian, perspective on matters that are important to our nation.
A friend gave me a book entitled “Remembering Reagan.” President Reagan would have been 100 years old last year and I remember him well. But most of the youth or recent immigrants do not even know who he was or what he meant to our country.
