Well. the "'COlnpany kept" by the Pahrump Valley Gazette is one fine reflection on the most informative and interesting newspaper in Pahrump. Thanks, guy's, and keep it comin'! /s/J. Insley Pahrump, NV Expansion of Ft. Irwin The Wilderness Society, National Parks and Conservation Association, and the Natural Resources Defense Council op- pose the proposed expansion of Ft. Irwin as outlined Decem- ber 1996 Draft Environmental Impact Statement. Our com- bined organizations represent over one million Americans, including nearly 200,000 in California and Nevada. Our membership and, many others, prize the multiple re- sources available for their use in the Avawatz Mountains and ]ilurian Valley proposed for annexation by the Army. The recreational, natural and cultural values of these public lands will be totally destroyed by the proposed action. Five Congressionally designated wilderness study areas, including lands proposed for inclusion to Death Valley Na- tional Park, a multitude of cultural resources, the Dumont Dunes off-highway vehicle area, extensive habitat for wild- life, including bighorn sheep, and many other recreational resources will be lost to public use and enjoyment if the pro- posed action is adopted. We request a sixty-day extension of the comment'period so that we can complete a detailed review of the Impact State- ment. Given the length and technical nature of some parts of the document, the additional time is needed to ensure we can adequately review, understand, and comment on all aspects of the document. Is/Norbert Riedy Conservation Director Barstow, CA Oops! I would like to correct some information printed in the Feb- ruary 20, 1997 edition of your paper concerning Round Moun- tain Gold Corporation. It was reported under the "Commish Meeting" article that the financial problems currently being experienced at Nye Regional Medical Center are now "com- pounded by the fact Round Mountain Gold has its own doc- tor." While it is true that RMGC has hired a physician to provide services at the Smoky Valley Outpatient Clinic, he is not expected to arrive until as late as April of this year. Al- though the cfinic has been without a provider since May 1996, we have encouraged our employees to use the facilities in Tonopah whenever possible. Is/Joni L.

Thanks again and God richly bless each and everyone of you, is my prayer! I'm grateful I get to live out here! May God bless all you dear readers and keep you in His care! Is/Eva Fishd Amarogsa, NV Why force Kindergarten? If we don't let inmates run the asylum or the fox guard the chicken coup, why in the world to we continue to allow tax- payer-financed, government-employed teachers union pawns to set education policy in the state of Nevada? If giving pub- lic employees power to propose and vote on legislation that directly effects them isn't a conflict of interest, I don't know what is. Once again, Democrat/teacher/assemblywoman Chris Guinchigliani has proposed heavy-handed legislation that would require parents to subject their toddlers to our failing public school systems a year earlier. Chris G's iron-fisted proposal to force all kids into kindergarten - regardless of a parent's wishes - and extend the half-day kindergarten expe- rience into a full day, is nothing short of a ploy to hire more dues-paying union members for the Nevada Education Asso- ciation. Mandated kindergarten is a solution in search of a prob- lem. First, 98 percent of kindergarten-age kids already attend kindergarten. Even persons subjected to public education will recognize this as an extremely high figure. Secondly, it's a parent's right and responsibility to decide whether or not their child goes to kindergarten - not Hillary Clinton's village or Chris Guinchigliany or the teachers union. Lastly, we should be very afraid of the Assemblywoman's scheme to "reform" kindergarten in order to make it more "developmentally based." That's education-speak for "screw it up" - such as the failed "reforms" known a whole language, and its sibling, the new, new, new, new-math. Kindergarten should serve as a bridge for toddlers to go from home to the school environment - and a half-day of cut- ting, pasting, coloring and making jell is more than suffi- cient. For crying out loud, Chris, let the kids be kids for a little while longer. You and your accomplices will get your mitts on them in your non-education camps soon enough. IS Charles A.
