Republican Women host 15th annual Lincoln Day Dinner The Republican Women hosted their annual Lincoln Day Dinner at Saddle West Hotel and Casino Saturday, February 1. Nevada congressmen Jim Gibbons and John Ensign, as well as Secretary of State Dean Heller. were in attendance to compliment an intpressive grouping of some of Pahrump's most prominent and influential residents. Pahrump Valley' Republican Women Presi- dent Rosemarie Limner welcomed the audi- ence and introduced the honored guests. Dan Burdish, Executive Director of the Nevada Republican Party served as master of ceremo- nies. After Maryan Sharp, Southern Director of the Nevada Federation of Republican Women led the Pledge of Allegiance, Repre- sentative John Ensign performed the invoca- tion. The Saddle West put on a tasty dinner consisting of tossed salad and bread, a tenderly baledquarter cfiicen, baeffpotato witfi trim- minus, and a vegetable. For dessert, a choice of fresh apple pie or creamy chocolate cake with O a bottomless cup of coffee provided the perfect ending to this delicious meal. Representative Jim Gibbons was the first speaker of the evening, an evening that would prove replete with excellent speeches. Gibbons spoke of the inevitable patriotism one fi:els when at'riving in the nation's capitol, Washington D.C. John Ensign spoke of the 16th president of the United States and the namesake fi)r the dinner, Abraham Lincoln. Perhaps the most entertaining speaker was Sec- retary of State Dean Heller. Heller spoke of government services and how they would improve if the), came with a money-back guarantee. In other words, if you have to spend more than half an hour on line at the Department of Motor Vehicles... you would not be charged for processing your registration, license plates, driver's license etc. An interesting idea.
