Pah'ump Valley Gazette, Thu,day, .It;ly 24, 1997 i Outage Continued from front page Terrible's Town Casino's emergency generator "kicked in 28 seconds after the power went out," according to General Manager John Thielman. "Gaming contin- ued as normal, with no interruption to cus- tomers. Kenny Roger's Roaster Restaurant served sandwiches in place of its normal menu until VEA restored power." The exte- rior lights were off for the duration of the outage as they are not connected to the emer- gency generator. Smith's Food & Drug's Store Director Rod Sherer said "two emergency generators responded to the outage in a few minutes. The second generator took a little longer to re- spond."

' 7 7-7300 Yo tth falls during climbing trip .,arvcl, Round Mountain by Mary Lamar Gazette Staff ROUND MOUNTAIN -Jeremy David Wilson, 18, of nearby Hadley died as a result of a climbing accident, Thurs- day, July 18. Lt. Tony Philips of the Nye County Sheriffs Office said Wilson and his friends were climbing a waterfall in Broad Canyon when Wilson fell approximately 60 feet. Philips confirmed a friend of Wilson's, Dack Tipton, came to his aid. Tipton reportedly then hiked to his truck, drove to Scott's Stop in Carvers on State Route 376 where he called 911. Med-Air was called to the scene, a narrow canyon pre- vented the helicopter from landing It remained on stand-by at the base of the mountain, so the youth could be immediately transported. Rescue efforts were brought in from Nye County Sheriffs Office, Round Mountain Mine Rescue, Sheriffs Search and Rescue, Med-Air and Smoky Valley Ambulance. There were approximately 30 rescue workers in all, Philips reported. The rescue teams hiked about three miles over rough terrain to reach Wilson. Upon their arrival, "he was barely alive," lips reported. The rescue workers began first-aid. During transportation he stopped breathing. After several attempts to resuscitate him failed, Wilson died as a result of his injuries.
