--' Pahrump Valley Gazette, Thursday, March 13, 1997 17 New executive layer at bv Gazette staff Fast-moving workers at the Tonopah Senior Center say what they really need is another hands-on team player _ not the new executive layer that's been added to the Senior Nutrition Program with the appointment of Rachel Nichol- son as acting director. Nicholson, who has added the senior duties to her tasks as special assistant to the county man- ager, replaces the seriously ill program director Van Crawford. Crawford, however, used to put in a full day at the project office, according to her colleagues, who talked to the Ga- zette on the understanding they would not be named. They say they have been told that Nicholson will provide the "leadership" they need. The Nye County Board of Commis- sioners has not yet discussed Nicholson's appointment and how much of the nutrition program's fund- ing will be used to pay her. By Wednesday's end, County Manager Les Bradshaw had not responded to a ques- tion faxed at 11:30 a.m., asking if a portion of Nicholson's salary as his spe- cial assistant was to be paid out of the Senior Nutrition Fund. Another Gazette question to Brad- shaw that went unanswered: Did he in- tend to put the new post for Nicholson on an upcoming commission agenda.? Commissioner Bobby Revert says he personally will put the matter on the" agenda; if necessary. "Look for that to change," Revert told the Gazette. He said he believed that only the commis- sion could make such an appointment. "But I might be x rong.- In a controversial move last Septem- ber. the commissioners retroactively ap- proved Nicholson's hiring as Bradshaw's assistant the same day' she was fired from her position as a deputy district attorney. Initially, the commissioners planned to fund Nicholson's ahnost $100,000 sal- ary and benefit package with money from the Yucca Mountain Nuclear Waste Re- pository Project. Less than a year ago there were three people doing the day-to-day work in the nutrition program office. In August, the assistant director retired. She was re- placed by the accounts clerk _ who, since no one was hired for that position, still does all the accounting. Crawford did a lot of grant writing and attended all the meetings of the four ad- visory councils, which, in coordination with the nutrition program, run the county's four seniors' activities programs (in Pahrump, Bcatty, Amargosa Valley and Tonopah). Before the center moved to its new building near the medical cen- ter, Crawford routinely dined with the seniors, her co-workers said. Nicholson has not yet visited the Tonopah facility, the Gazette was told. But she has written a letter in support of an application for a grant for landscap- ing around it. And she has gone to a project council meeting. As to the leadership of the program, Commissioner Revert said there have been no complaints about Paula King, the assistant director who is doing the ac- tual work. "She appears to me to be very strong for the position she's in.
