Notice Pursuant to NRS 244.085 (7), the Nye County Board of Commissioners will hold its second meeting of April on Tuesday, April 15, 1997, at the Bob Ruud Commu- nity Center located on Highway 160 & East Basin Road, Pahrump, Nevada. The meeting will begin at 8:30 a.m. Smoke Signals Indian Trading Post Authentic Indian Jewelry and Home Decor. Watch Batteries Replaced Open 7 Days a Week 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. (Near 160 & Basin) 191-1 Frontage Rd. -- 727-0554 Kids tops * Shorts .50 Pahrump Humane Society South off Hwy 372 by Desert Connections thru 10 am to 4 NYE COMMISSION HAS NO FEAR, NO SHAME Contindued from Page 11 On March 14, 1997 the Gazette received a copy of the agenda for the March 18, 1997 meeting of the Nye County Commission. Item 17-A, an action item up for consider- ation by the commission, stuck out like a sore thumb and reads as follows: Action - presentation by Pre-Paid Legal Services for no- cost legal services to Nye County employees - Shannon Himes. The back-up material in the agenda packet included a let- This Man's Opinion ter dated March 11, 1997 to the special assistant to the by Brent Mathewson Nye County Manager, Rachel Nicholson, and states, "Pre-Paid Legal Services is to attor- ney fees what major medical is to doctor and hospital bills. By offering our services to the employees of Nye County, every covered individual will have .access to convenient, affordable legal help and advise." Services in the proposal include: phone calls and letters, document review, will preparation, traffic defense, tragic accident and damage re- covery, trial defense and IRS audit services. This supposedly clear picture of legal happiness began to get smoked up on March 18, 1997 when a 5-person team representing pre-paid legal services presented its proposal to the Nye Coutity Commission. This writers attention perked up immediately when one of the representatives stated that a national publication had rated pre-paid Legal Services as one of Seventh Best run The truth is that the Gazette had made inquires about the organization and the services it purportedly rendered to those participating in its plan, and yes, an indirect compli- ment had been offered to the company. Upon learning that Pre-Paid Legal Services was headquartered in Oklahoma, Mr. Lowes had offered the opinion that that was one of his favorite states. I guess you could interpret that comment as "'Passing an investigation with flying colors" if you wanted to. The focus of the Gazettes in- quiry was to find out whether the services offered would cover the expenses involved that a county official or em- ployee might become exposed to when acting in a manner that placed them outside the legal umbrella of the District Attorney. When asked this ques- tion the attorney representing Pre-paid Legal Services re- sponded by saying he didn't know the answer. I WOULD PROPOSE A TEST. Three of the sitting Nye County Commissioners plus the County Manager, Les Bradshaw, and his special as- sistant, Rachael Nicholson, are presently in potential se- rious legal difficulties. Through actions allegedly taken and not taken by Nye County hierarchy these people have managed, or mis-managed, if you prefer, to embroil em- selves in lawsuits of some magnitude and are being sued their activities had'been valid and not improper. In addition to the numerous lawsuits that I am referring to are the legal difficulties that at least some of the Nye County Commissioners will be faced with if the Nevada State Commission on Ethics takes jurisdiction on a request for an opinion against the Nye County Commission filed recently by the Amargosa Town Advisory Board. The advi- sory board's complaint is 5 pages long, backed by 22 pages of documentation and states in pertinent part. "Reasonable people in Nye County are coming to believe and under- stand that Nye County is run by a rogue government that could accurately be described as lawless in some sense of the word." The advisory board's request for an opinion cites as an example that on December 2, 1996 the Nye County Dis- trict Attorney issued a formal written opinion to the Nye County Commission that multiple class "C" felony viola- tions were possibly taking place by action of the commis- sion and county staff. The Nye County Commission's re- sponse to these charges was the same as "if a fly might have landed somewhere" according to the Amargosa Town Advisory Board's letter to the Nevada Ethics Commission which was also sent to the governor's office, the Nevada Department of Taxation and the Nevada Attorney General. The Ethics Commission will decide on March 21, 1997 whether or not it will take jurisdiction on the issues involved. My suggested test would be for the Commissioners and County Administration to sign on as individuals to Pre-Paid companies in the United States and then backed up that separately as individuals along with Nye_ County. for al- Legal Services Plan and use its services in defense of the comment by stating that the Pahrump Vley Gazette had tvged "m)pes that have the full tia !  bring alleged 'eties. ,e rest of us can sit backand watch, run mces.Ugaaon on their y  the Gazette  .ally:t 9 l kne, attor- If d S_elces is as md U 'y dm'm the Pubfisher.F,,ditor, Bob Lowes, had re to them that ne, edat:lhe rmpeties a these Conum Staff should have no fear. the Com.pany had passed the Gazettes' ,nvtlgatmn w,a .mattexs .tlse2".y,s mats,de thcnHa  :.
