Wynonna Judd spotted in Pam'ump? by Patti Babcock Oakridge Landing is the perfect place to be on a sunny Sunday to enjoy the fishing and shade. Last Sunday, July 20, the crowd was enjoying more than fishing. All eyes were fixed on the singer moving from the band platform onto the ramp/bridge. No wonder. Wynonna Judd in Pahrump? The auburn-haired woman looks just like the famous singer. Sounds like her, too. She even plays the guitar. Is it an illusion, or is Wynonna Judd really performing in Pahr- ump? Kathy Johnson is so per- fect in her impersonation of the popular singer, it's easy for the audience to believe they are seeing and hearing Judd. The look, the move- ment, the sound flow so natu- rally, for the moment Johnson is Wynonna Judd to her appreciative fans. Johnson, who has been singing publicly since the sixth grade, was giving a spe- cial performance. A birth- day gift for her mother Judy Cummings, "who has en- couraged me everyday." Ri- chard Cummings, a shift manager at Terrible's Town Casino, did his part as chief barbe que cook for family and friends. WYNONNA?-Kathy Johnson impersonates the star. Entertainment was free to all, much to the delight of a group of regular patrons who seek respite from heat and pressures fishing at the ponds or just relaxing in the wel- come shade. Johnson's "Kathy's Country Karaoke" can be enjoyed Saturday nights at the Four Mile Bar on Boulder Highway and Sahara in Henderson. She also performs for private groups. She likes to sing Patsy Cline songs and a variety of other country music. An agent saw her per- form and told her she was perfect to impersonate Wynonna Judd. Johnson "gave it a try." Audience re- sponse has proved the agent was right.. The singer also has a day job, advertising and pub- lic relations coordinator for New York, New York Ca- sino in Las Vegas. ALas Vegas resident for 14 years, Johnson says, " Pahrump's Oakridge Landing is the ul- timate place to be on a hot day." To book Wynonna a.k.a. Johnson for your special event contact her by calling Jerry or Ivy Bortvit at 727- 8276. Mcmamogr00rns W,hen it was time for her yearly mammogram, Beth knew just where to go.
