-1 Pahrump Valley Gazette, Thursday , April 3, 1997 3 Nye digs deep Continued from front page possessory- use tax cases will apparently not be settled until years into the future. Charlie Rodewald, of the Nye County Budget Office, pegged the expense to the County at $600,000. Commis- sioner Cameron McRae (Pahrump) then reworded his motion explaining that if the unions were to receive the retroactive pay increase then the non-union county em- ployees that had taken a 10 percent pay cut several months age should also have their paychecks restored retroactive to the level before the cuts had been put in place. Questioned as to what the total package about to be voted on would be, McRae estimated it at $900,000. The commission's latest action brings the tota I PETT funds expended since mid November 1996, that lie outside the supposed restrictions placed on those funds, to $5 million. EMT Class Spring 1997 One student first call was a cardirc arrest where all attempts by Emergency Personnel to revive the person was futile.

Class enrollment started with 22, the class a grueling 120 hours of weekends and nights took its toll of students. Completing class room work, they assigned the students to an ambu- lance and emergency room for future training. Pahrump blaze Continued from frontpage almost everyone was aware of the blaze. "I just looked out the window and noticed that their trailer was on fire," said Ed Norton, who was in Peg Legs Bar at the time, "A few minutes later, the fire trucks arrived." The response time of the fire department in Pahrump has come under attack as neighbors and onlookers commented on how long it took for the fire trucks to respond. "We were worried that the fire would jump the fence and spread," said one' anonymous neighbor, "'It took about six minutes for the fire department to respond and we didn't With a $1 million shortfall in the County's group health insurance fund, and an anticipated major increase in the county's general insurance policy coming up in the next few months yet to be addressed, there was no discus- sion by the commissioners as to how PETT fund money that had previously been earmarked to build schools in Pahrump, the proposed Beatty Justice facility, and the Pahrump County complex could be salvaged.

"There is no way that the fire department in Pahrump can save a mobile home in Pahrump if they are further than six minutes away," said Bill Ballew, a local who witnessed the blaze, "It is an enormous expense to taxpayers. They need to come up with a quicker response system." The fire marshal and fire fighters who attended to the April 2 blaze were unavail- able for comment as the fire was still under investigation. 1977 i Gazette pho by Andrew Holtmann ) Thursday Tacos 50 Thursday $1 Margaritas 3pm till 7pm "Ka raoke" Thursday 7pm-11pm Z . o I1 .,..--,op ........
