22 Thursday, July 10, 1997 Pahrump Valley Gazette Senior News II I IIIIII I II ul I ToPX SENIOR Nz--00 ....... (702) 482.6450 ........... by Irene Cessna We had a short week with the July 4 holiday, but nonethe- less, it was a busy one. Especially for the staff. The end of June is the end of the quarter so this means quarterly reports have to be sent to the appropriate divisions. Doesn't sound like a big deal to most but it is to the workers that have to do the reports. With deadlines to meet, this means, "get your act together or else." But we manage to get the job done. Tuesday was a big day for us. We had our neighboring communities who were in Tonopah for the county commis- sioners meeting stop by for lunch. From Pahxump we had Betty and R. C. Carrier, Loretta Hannah, Mary Giliberto, Virginia Taylor, Ruth Weidenheimer, and Evelyn and Harry Haman. From Beatty was Skinny and Dorothy Forsythe. And from Tonopah we had Georgia Arnett and Carol and Chuck Forum GOOD OLE BOBS 500 raised print cards Choice of Designs 3 colors ink, Only $14.95 Engraved Name Tags | Cox. Returning for a short visit was Monica and Edward Dahl and Alice Boni also from Pahrump. We were so pleased having these iblks with us and hope they enjoyed their time at our Center. We have no other news to report this week but do take a moment to check our menu for the coming week: July 10- Chimichangas July 11 - Stew July 14 - Ham and scalloped potatoes July 15 - Pork chow mein July 16 - Macaroni and cheese w/weiners Have a good day --see you next week.

SENioR" SERVICE LNi ............. (702) 727-5008 ........ My neighbor in my New York apartment house is well into her 90s. A former piano teacher who was born in Russia, she and her husband, a musician who was part of a group working to organize a union for Russian musicians, escaped from the- country when Stalin destroyed the labor movement and turned the "Workers' Paradise" into another form of serfdom. They went to Holland, only to find they would have to flee again as Hitler's invasion loomed. Friends in South Africa managed to get them out. They came to the United States in the early 1950s and lived happily together until he died about 15 years ago. My neighbor, and my friend, has been legally blind for years. But she remains completely indepen- dent and would no more think about moving into an "assisted living '' facility than she would acknowledge Liberace was a pianist. In the South African accent she acquired when she learned to speak English, she says, "He was a mediocre piano thumper who could never accept his limitations and gave a lot of people the wrong idea about how a really good pianist should play the instrument. I can't tell you how many students I had who got a completely wrong impression (about playing) from him." f iiiii ii i ii i i ii i i i i I iii HII I OHentai Futons Furniture Gifts A Beautiful... 1997 Oriental Calendar!! & a Letter Opener!!
