6 Thursday, January 2, 1997 Pahrump Valley Gazette i i Rachel, Rachel, Rachel... Have to wonder just what kind of mutual admiration society is coming into focus? I am not one given to counting trivia but a call yesterday pointed out that Richard "The Lion Hearted" Thurlow mentioned "that woman" in excess of sixty times in his most recent coverage of the "Beckett-Nicholson" issue. The last thing I intend to do is become press agent for Thuriow. But I can't help but wonder what this one man show has up his sleeve? Seems awfully journalistically enamored with "that lady." After the aforementioned call I did take a peek and sure enough in one of Rich's pieces he used her name in excess of ten times in less than three inches of space. I think it's time to face facts. Lady Rachel is not the Virgin Mary. Not even Lady Godiva. Certainly no Madonna. Or Hillary Clinton. This aow-fired assistant district attorney is just a lowly human like the rest of us mortals. Why the commish board felt she deserved a newly created post as special assistant to County Manager Les Bradshaw is the question ofth year. One would think "the lady" had hidden talents or maybe at least hidden secrets. Commissioners come and go at the will of the voter. District attorneys and our other constitutional officers serve at the grace and favor of the electorate. But it would appear that some think Nicholson holds a special key to that vault of knowledge that will lead us all into the 21st Century. I won't try to second guess chairman Cam here because we all know McRae has his own agenda. However, keeping Rachel around is suspect. And an unnecessary expense to you the taxpayer. A luxury we ust don't need. Back to "Poor Richard" for a moment. Maybe Thurlow has his own agenda too. Maybe he plans to spearhead the split to create a north and south Nye. He has made a real point of being frustrated with the 165 mile distance to Tonopah. Sure the drive is an inconvenience.But it can also be a most therapeutic two and a half hour trip. Calms the nerves. No cellular phones to answer. Just contemplate nature. Calms the arteries too. Relaxes the heart. Richard, you could even stop in Crystal i ii for lunch. Or at least a leisurely cup of coffee. Either coming or going. Sure, eventually we will undoubtedly have two counties. Probably that concept has more overall pluses than minuses. Wonder if Rich is thinging of Lady Rachel as the first District Attorney in the Payrump county seat? Maybe even call it Nicholson County. We already have a Rachel, Nevada as any Extraterrestrial can attest to. Rachel is all "burned" over not getting her platform before the hastily created county personnel advisory board. I'm sure this will come in time. In the interim "the lady" has made her intention known that she won't sit idle. Wars and rumors of wars. Like a lady Napoleon, Rachel will march forward regardless of the merit of her cause. Maybe step in step with "Richard the Lion Hearted" by her side. Pencil and pad at the ready. Three cheers for Thuriow. And a four gun salute for Lady Rachel. Sooner or later Cam and the rest of his crew have to come up for air. Face facts. Thankfully the new commission board with fresh talent may be able to get the attention of their hold over colleagues. Nobody is indispensable. Not even "that lady." I kind of think the new assistant D.A. m Gary Pulliam n is going to be a real plus for Beckett's office. Gary showed real class in standing up to big Cam. Right is right. Even in "Cam Land." And on the subject of Mr. Beckett. No I didn't take part in Nicholson's release. You are correct Richard. There is no evidence that I did. None exists. Beckett runs his own affairs. Just like I do mine. That's just part of Rachers hallucinating. I did some research. Checked some stock and corporate records. So many people are so sure of so much. Funny thing about who owns what. But none of that really matters anyway. I'm going to have a really good New Year. Hope you plan the same. Here in the Kingdom and even beyond. The "R and R" show. Richard and Rachel. We'll have to wait to see how it all plays out. Of course we already know who will be the joker. Happy Holidays.
