Finiancing available For appointments ~ 727-9262 | I I League President Sally Holzer at the April 21 town board meeting, the lights that serve to brighten the field are in need of adjustment. Holzer said that the lights at Pahrump's Sports and Recreation Complex are spread out too far over a 500 foot area and are brighter in some parts than others. The playing surface for little league is around 300 square feet. The current lighting system is adequate for soccer, but not for baseball. The town has paid for lighting service from Yesco Inc., but Holzer said that they need to come out again. "The whole field needs to be adjusted," stated Holzer. "The wind knocks out the lights and the brightness of some of the lights can be a safety hazard for kids trying to catch a ball while looking into the lights." "I think that the lights are too tall," said Diane Stavrow, Player Agent for Rookies. "There are areas of the field that the lights don't cover enough, but yet there is enough to light up people's back yards. Holzer said that the little league has had to shell out money in the past for service to the lights. A special truck called a "boom box" is equipped with a crane tall enough to service the lights. "It is not our fault that the town doesn't have a boom box tall enough to service the lights," said Holzer. "But it seems like whenever we come before the town board it is like 'Oh, what does the little league want now?' Don't take money away from us for something that isn' t our fault to begin with." Holzer did say though that the baseball fields in district 3 have been extremely well kept. She is happy with the current state the complex is in. "We did not mean this lighting concern in any way to. reflect any bad feelings toward the town," said Holzer. "I have seen baseball fields in Vegas and other towns and none compare to the ones in Pahrump. I am more than happy with the current standards in District 3." Holzer's concerns have prompted another town bo.  ' meeting slated for April 29. Further discussion of the lig ing situation will be addressed. Until then the kids will be playing under the current lights at the complex.
