' 24Thtrdhy, March  27',"1-'997 qPhhrt.mli3/alltt Gtte Letters to the Editor Friends of the College A new group, Friends of the College, has been formed as a fund raising group to obtain funding in support of a commu- nity College of Southern Nevada rural center to be built in Pahrump. The group is an Ad Hoc committee of the Pahrump Legislative Task Force that has been charged with bringing the center to Pahrump. Initial funding for the construction the center will come from the state general tax fund, but the group needs to raise funds to send a contingent of Pahrump students and other citizens to Carson City to support passage of Assembly Bill 253, (As- semblyman Roy Neighbor's construction hill) when it comes before the Ways and Means committee. The bill asks for $3 million from the state general fund for the Public Works Board to build the Center in cooperation with the University and Community System of Nevada. The bill will probably come before the legislature, "late in the session," according to Neighbors. Several fund raising methods were discussed at a meeting held Wednesday, March 19. The Friends are making plans to hold a raffle, ask local businesses to contribute funds, help local students hold car washes, and several other fund raising octivities. Everyone is urged to participate in contributing funds " or helping out in other ways for support of this center that will benefit the towns of Pahrump, Amargosa Valley, and Beatty. Everyone interested in joining the Friends is invited to call and participate. The group emphasized that, if Pahrump is go- ing to win the education center, the whole town must put fo9rth and organized eftort in support of it. Qitizens need to write their legislators, sign petitions that are circulating in many businesses, and help with the fund raising efforts to support passage of the bill. The next meeting of Pahrump Legislative Task Force will be Friday, April 4. All meetings are open to the public and their involvement is welcome. Dan Simmons 727-6456 Reggie Knight 727-1193 THANK YOU I really don't know what to say to express my grati- tude to you, on behalf of, Sister Mary and myself, for taking so much trouble to find a room for us and that gratis, in Tonopah when we made our trip to Death Valley. The rooms were clean, comfortable and warm and I can assure you, we enjoyed the scenery. Many, many thanks. I haven't the slightest hope of repaying you but there is one thing I can and will do. I will ask the Lord to bless you and yours abundantly and I might even be audacious enough to ask him to reserve a room for you in his kingdom! Easter is around the comer and I pray that the risen Lord will bless you and reward you for your kindness in his own unique way.

N. questioned Quite obviously those five people interviewed by your, "Ga- zette on the street "reporter (3-13-97), in their response to the question;" What do you think about the United States continu- ing to support the United Nations?" They seem to be horribly ill-informed about the U.N., although most probably typical of many misinformed Americans--believing that it is a "peace- keeping organization." To ignore the pathetic record of fraud, waste and abuse, which has been scandalously rampant in this coercively utopian out- fit and to support this money sucking hog pen is akin to pay- ing for our own enslavement. How can U.S. taxpayers ever forget (and forgive) the United Nations controlled, "undeclared Korean War," in which over 54,000 Americans were slaugh- tered by the Communists? Or, the U.N. controlled, "undeclared Vietnam War,"--55 thousand plus---casualties of Communists (and our own phony bi-partisan treasonous politicians!). Altogether, since 1945, there have been over one thousand bloody wars in which the so-called "peacekeepers" have been involved, most recently in Haiti, Somalia and now Bosnia, where American troops are serving under this ghastly dicta- torship! How many more of our men and women will suffer similar atrocities, not only there, but in future controversial encounters? According to Dale Van Atta, who wrote, "The United Na- tions Is Out of Control," which appeared in the Readers Di- gest of November 1995, "at the height of the Ethiopian fam- ine, the U.N. General Assembly voted $73.5 million to build a U.N. conference center in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa. Eleven years later the huge center is not yet completed, and projected costs are $107 million. It is expected to be empty much of the time." So much for their slavish concern for the starving victims! "In 1945, when the U.N. began, it had a staff of 1500 and an annual budget of less than $20 million. Today the U.N. has some 53,000 employees costing $10 billion a year, headquar- tered in its New York 39 story slab." The majority of these employees are for;gners, whom, of course, enjoy diplomatic immunity from our laws--including murder one! Equally outrageous are the salaries and perks foisted upon the "overworked" United Nation employees. "For 17 years Mostafa Tolba was executive director of the U.N. Environ- ment Program (UNEP) based in Nairobi, Kenya. At his retire- ment in 1992, his annual salary approached that of the U.S. Secretary of Defense ($143,800). Tolba left with a pension of THE PAHRLIMP VALLEY GAZETTE WELCOMES LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. WRITERS WILL REMAIN ANONYMOUS BY WRITTEN REQUEST ONLY.

An article in Money magazine in their October 1995 issue (50 ' anniversary of the U.N.), stated, "The U.N. secretary gen- eral collects $344,200 annually, has unspecified vacation time, lives in housia  ,'ovided by the United Nations and receives $12,675 per child tax-free education grant." He also does not have to pay income taxes and enjoys a pension that most Ameri- cans would drool over. These are merely a few examples of an out of control bu- reaucracy, which American tax slaves have been shafted into supporting for too long. If the Gazette is willing to further expose this humungous monstrosity, as a public service to its readers, I would be glad to share my piles of documentation with you and the public. The patriotic 3ohn Birch Society has, since 1958, had as its top priority and bumper sticker slogan, "Get us out of the United Nations and the U.N. out of the U.S." A massive effort by dedicated JBS members collected nearly 9 million signatures of concerned citizens on petitions to do exactly that. They w,'-" presented to the United States Congress. This can becom reality if enough people decide that enough is enough. For more information call 727-9216. To preserve our sovereignty Vince Bogdan Where's Richard? Now that you have made a change in your paper, you for- got someone who made the paper interesting Richard Reul. I always read his column and saved all of his writings that held my interest. I'm sure there are a lot of people who would be happy if Richard came back. I also enjoy Slim Sez, he is always good for a laugh, some- thing we all need today. I hope you will think about putting Richard Reul back.
