James also won the talent portion of the competition with her mime impression of Ray Stevens' "The Streak", which is a rer•dition of horrible little tales involving a streaker. She dresses as an old man as she "tells" the tales. A 10-year resident of Pahrump, James said her husband is ecstatic about her win. She works as a gaming auditor at Terrible's Town Casino. The areas of competition are gown presentation, talent, philosophy of life presentation, and interview with the judges for poise and personality. Her philosophy is, "We all have the capacity to create small miracles each day. If you can put a smile on someone's face. If you can help someone who's down, then you have created your miracle." Josephine Weatherspoon of Pahrump was also a contestant in the pageant. Entrants have to be at least 60 years old to participate. This is the 12th year of the contest and the first year it was held as an open competition in which they did not have to first compete representing a town. James will travel to Biloxi, Miss., to compete in the national competition in September. She is a mother of 4, grandmother of 8 and great-grandmother of three. One daughter lives in Pahrump. At 5 feet 11 inchs, James was the tallest contestant in the state pageant.
