12 Thurstlay, Aprd'}, 'f997 Pahrttmp Val,azette Goldfield dog tax ordinance on the books I'm gonna have to watch it. My position as the humor writer in the family may be in danger. Ditto the bride has been doing some stories for the Gazette newspaper, covering the commissioners meetings. She's been doing a pretty good job of it. I don't do to many government meetings, my attention span isn't that long and listening to some dude drone on for hours doesn't turn me on. About the only time there is any excitement is when the guy represents another branch of the government who are trying to give us some more rules and regulations to live by. The BLM being a case in point. They keep trying and the sad part of it is their being paid with tax dollars paid by the rest of us not in favor of what they are trying to force on us. Anyway Ditto did a report on one commissioners meeting where one of the topics concerned stray dogs who were creating a problem. It was a pretty straight Slim Sez by Slim Sirnes forward article which went on de- scribing the action and the august body decided to send all the postal patrons of the county a (litter) informing them that there were ordinances on the books covering animals and their controls. Here follows is how this interesting passage got a little something extra added and how it appeared in the papers." And it was decided to mail out letters to all box- holders reminding people to renew their dog tags and shorts and these ordinances will be enforced." I knew Esmeralda County had a dog tag ordnance as awhile ago I found a dog tag dated 1912 which read "Goldfield dog Tax to July 1912 Number 93." But it didn't say anything about making sure their pets had new shorts, by the way if the owners of this dog who lost its tag swings by my place with the dog I will return the tag to them. They would be in a world of trouble if their pet got impounded for not being properly tagged or wearing old shorts. Have a good one. Out Esmeralda Way I I I II Everything in Esmeralda I I ( , By Carol Sirnes Good Morning! The winds are calm temporarily and it's going to be a great day here in rural Nevada. Several weeks ago Jack Sutton of TV Channel 2, Reno, was in the area filming some of the historic old buildings. He interviewed Jon Aurich and his son, along with friend Lawrence Labarth. John and family have bought the old Telephone & Telegraph Company, (built in 1907) and the Goldfield Consolidated Mines Company building next to it, and is doing what's called "arrested decay restora- tion." The Mines Company building, (then known as the Nixon Block building) built in 1905 was constructed of rhyolite rock which Jon had sanded and cleaned last year and the first floor refurbishing is almost complete. The film aired last Tuesday and Thursday evening on Channel 2 from Reno.

Gary Lyn Smith of Lenoir, NC, arrested for 3 ' offense A Burr under Cameron's Saddle It seems that my opinion in last weeks Gazette put a burr under some saddles in the area, which we intended. Arriv- ing at the Gazette this week I received a brief but informa- tive telephone call from Cameron McRae. I wished I could do shorthand or stenotype as I wanted to quote him accu- rately. l'd like to clarify one of his concerns. The reference to "Boss Hogg" was not about Cameron. It was meant as a generality referring to politicians from the board member to the President. I personally have no trust in about 90 percent of the politicians. Another concern was linking him to Pat Mankins or perceived as a pawn of Mankins. He went on to explain that he is at opposite ends of the political arena of Mankins' beliefs. Furthe r asserting he was "not anyones' pawn". The noun pawn has several meanings "foot soldier, .... a lesser chessman in chess," or "one with broad feet." I am sure he was referring to the noun that they define as "a person used Tonopah in the News Lang recipient of Navy Award April 9, 1997 (FH C)----Navy Fireman Jason B.
