Richard G. Head, the.vice president for environmental ser- vices of SRS, which, the Gazette has learned, has done work at the Nevada Test Site (NTS), said his company will handle the grant-writing. As part of that process, said Head, SRS will prepare a new master plan for the airport. Head, who is a retired Air Force brigadier general, claimed that SRS hopes to recoup its costs when the grant is funded. SRS also does construction work and plans to bid on the project. There was a brief discussion (devoid of skepticism) about how SRS would have to compete with other contractors in open bidding, In their presentation, ATL and SRS officials touted the privatization of military aircraft maintenance as the wave of the future. According to news reports last year, President Clinton has promised that the government would find pri- vate contractors to carry on aircraft maintenance work at McClellan Airforce Base in Sacramento, California, which is to be decommissioned. More tangible is Kemp's contribution of dated aircraft. A slick projection (albeit a bit hard for some of the audience to see, as it was projected on a side wall) showed these to include old MiG-2 ls and MiG-29s, some stored in Russia and A-4 Skyhawks stored in Malaysia and the US. To dem- onstrate his "'absolute commitment to moving to Tonopah," Kemp said, ATL is not even going to wait for federal fund- ing. He said the company is going to buy or lease property near the airport and bring in its aircraft right away. Commissioners spoke enthusiastically of the proposal. 'T rn really looking tbrward to welcoming ATLto Tonopah," said Commissioner Bob Davis, who represents the town. Commissioner Cameron McRae said the development will be good for Pahrump, as well as for Tonopah, as it will increase the tax base. Commission Chairman Dick Carver told Kemp he was really enthusiastic about the prospects of"employment flr hundreds, in your words, hundreds." When he first presented the proposal to the commission last October, Kemp claimed it could bring $5.5 billion a year into Nye County. Carver also applauded the heavy rail line which ATL's plans call tbr as "the most exciting since I've been a little kid." The rail line+ which Kemp mentioned in his appear- ance before the board last October as a means of hauling heavy aircraft between Tonopah and the Desert Rock Air- port at Mercury, was not included in his presentation on Tuesday.

"Jay" Howard. The formal obituary from the mortuary in St. George was personally delivered to our Pahrump production offices this week by his beloved wife of 53 years, the former June Stevenson of Tonopah and Pahrump; his devoted son Wil- liam, better known locally as "Mike," along with his bride Carey and their daughter Katherine, all of Pleasanton, Cali- fornia. It was good to see the three generations of the Howard clan, we only wished our meeting could have been under different circumstances. We extend to them our deep- est sympathies on their loss, along with the sincerest con- dolences of all readers who were privileged to have known Jay. Jay Howard served as sheriff during one of the most troubled and turbulent chapters in the living history of the county, back in the days of he so-called "Nye County Brothel Wars." That's when I first became aware of a western sheriff by the name of Jay Howard, who would later become to treasured friend. He and my dad, both Navy men, island-hopped with Adm. William "Bull" Halsey END OF AN ERA - Retired Nye County Sheriff CJ (Jay) Howard, who served in that capacity from 1974 to 1978, one of the most turbulent periods in the colorful history of Nye County died Feb. 14 in St. George, Utahl following a lengthy illness.
