6 Thursday, January 23, 1997 Pahrump Valley Gazette iiiiii II "King of Garbage" tries for "Gary Grandstander" Former Nye Commission Chairman Kam McRae seems self-appointed on a new tack. At first blush he has suddenly become a "wannabe" authority on the entire and complex issue of brothel related advertising. We have no choice but to scratch our head in wonderment. A new day and opportunity. A new agenda for the "King of Garbage." Maybe in some twisted or demented way he blames the brothel owners for his downfall from grace as Nye chairman. Seems unlikely, however, until now the" Cat Hater" has shown little, if any, interest in this subject. On the same day Kam is divested of his lofty crown he suddenly surfaces with his package of advertising concerns. Brothel advertising is an issue of some caution and concern to every owner, this one included. Our legal ranches are by state statute allowed to advertise our existence in any county area of the state where the industry legally operates. Local controls additionally are varied from place to place and at times complicate the issue. Since Nevada law is only as effective as state boundaries there is always the question of out of area advertising. This seems perfectly legal. However, the big question is usually taste and appropriate presentation. It can be reasonably argued that at a minimum clients need and deserve to be able to at least find our ranches. One recent customer found his way to two separate rural residences thinking each to be the "ABC" brothel before someone helped the wandering client with sufficient directions. This happens often and creates embarrassment for all concerned. Good adver- tising solves problems and it does so by disseminating proper information. Kam the "King of Garbage" suddenly surfaces with his apparent litany of advertising wrongs. Maybe we here in Nye have all been kept in the dark. Maybe McRae majored in college in conflict and minored in marketing and advertising. Maybe all this time we have had a Wall Street advertising whiz right under our noses. Kam, as usual, is being unique in what turns him on. One never knows what will top McRae's priority list. Never heard a word from "King Kam" on this subject until now. With all of Nye's woes this hardly seems like a matter for mass concern. My phone has remained silent. McRae Could have called to discuss these questions at any time. We certainly have been able to address other matters of mutual interest with no strain. III I Acts To Follow By the time you read  Bill Clinton will have been sworn into the office of the presidency of the Umted States for a second consecutive term -- the first time aDemocrat has been re.elected president for consecu- tive terms since the days of Franklin Delano Roosevelt- the country has observed a national holiday honoring the slain civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, the 1997 Nevada Legislature convened its 69th biennial session in Carson City, the outspoken GOP Speaker of the House was reprimanded and fined $300,000 for ethical violations . Senate considered a bill to ship up to 85,000 radioactive nudear waste to Nevada. Any you slice it, was quite a way to start the week that was. TV channels and the big city papers were full Coronation," as his critics are calling it, I said about the continuing dump the nation's nuke wastes out here on ; never been to Carson City Legislature is in session, it's worth the your money is being spent. you should made: "law and The best way to manage problems and or potential ones is to go to the principals involved in any matter. Some well meaning ad man may have with good intentions to serve his client accidentally placed material in an area not appropriate. Could easily happen. And just as easily be rectified. Such mundane matters can bog down the smooth flow of county govern- ment unnecessarily. In other words, don't sweat the small stuff Kam. Boards and law enforcement are busy enough in most cases with the true strain of the job. I have to stop and consider that McRae may be just grandstanding to the naivete of friends and constituents? Grandstanding is often one side-effect of any down fallen King. There was once a time when casino gaming advertising was a no-no. And remember when lawyers were precluded from advertising beyond hanging out a shingle and carrying a few business cards? Ditto physicians. Now both hit the electronic air waves With the promised gradeur of massive awards for those mistreated. Miracle results for baggy eyelids and saggy tushes. Get hep. Get Rich. Get beautiful. Hopefully, the '97 legislature up Carson City way will once again address this entire issue. Our industry association has plans to ask for a review of present laws. It would be appropriate if our ranches could, without fear of punishment, at least publish their legal and safe existence with directions as to how to find our businesses. Might even help put a damper on the picturesque and questionably exploitative advertising done by the non-regulated activity in Clark County that is a front for the sex for sale activity. The reader might want to look at "Entertainers" in the Sprint phone book yellow pages. Now there is where a problem truly reigns with no control. Kam, you rascal. Whatever your agenda is you need to be up front and honest. Like the way you defend Lady Rachael. Something beyond the under- standing of us all. Forked tongue. Three sided coins. Kam, don't try to be a magician. Leave that to the ageless Wizzzard with his unquestioned wisdom. Speaking of the Wizzard, believe we will call upon that master of knowledge to set matters into proper orbit. Can't help but wonder if the Wizzard hasn't things to share related to the downfall of the "Garbage King." All hail the Grandstander. All hail big Kam. Garbage....chant for the Wizzzard. He will appear... entire district like the back of his hand. Roy Neighbors, to give a brief bit background on the rural Assembly seat, was preceded in that position in prior years by Tar00,00et by Joe Richards from the Kingdom of lVye Whether you hate him or love him, he won't let you ignore him! in thestate Assembly. Over on the represented by Robert Revert of Beatty, the uncle of the current Nye County Co n." ioner of the same name; followed by TonoPah's Rick Blakemore and Pahrump's Ken Redelsperger. I could go hack even further with the names of other prominent locals who represented our ]jmml rural interests in the past, but so much for the history lesson.
