The Tonopah/Goldfield Re- union Picnic was a huge success. It was great meeting people we haven't seen for years. Amazing how time flies and it seems like yesterday. Get ready for another fantastic bag sale at the Thrift Shop on Tuesday, September 2. As always, the first bag will be $5, the second bag will be $3. Plan to spend some time browsing through the store. We were delighted having Millie James, Ms. Senior Ne- vada (Nye County) with us on Tuesday. What a grand lady. She entertained us with her performance that won her the Ms. Senior Nevada title. She will be going to Biloxi, Miss. to compete in the finals in September. We wish her good luck throughout the competition. With Millie was Helen Holtz and Dorothy Cortner from Amargosa. Helen Holtz has been involved with the Ms. Senior Nevada pageant for many years and has done an outstanding job. Our congratulations to Paula King, appointed by the Nye County commissioners as Director of Nye County Senior Nutrition Program. Paula has done a wonderful job this past year keeping the program on track. With the retirement of Carol Cox last August, the serious medical problems this past year of Van Crawford (now retired) and last year's cutback of county personnel, Paula was left with the task of filling all positions. Not an easy job for anyone. Let's all work together and give her our help and full support. Wonderful food and wonderful guests sharing their lunch hour with us. We had a great visit with John and Aloma Lofihouse, of Vernal, Utah and daughter Dianne Clouser of Round Mountain, Robert Smoot, Barbara Galvin and her dad, John McKinnon who has recently moved back to Tonopah from Las Vegas. Mr. McKinnon lived in Tonopah, Manhat- tan, and other comnmnities and spent several years in Washougal, Wash. before returning to Nevada. We welcome him back to Tonopah and look forward to having him join us Lic# 7562A & 17563A ~ 727-5435 . 591 S Buol Rd. p.O.

Crafters reserve your tables now by calling 553-2954. Once again, homemade items only. Reminder - Monday, September 1, is Labor Day holiday/ and the senior center will be closed. Have a nice holiday, and come in Tuesday for lunch. The workers at the new center are humming Christmas music every time we go to check on progress, but we think that's an exaggeration. We're optimistic, we think maybe the middle of September. But, that's not written in concrete. We'll keep you posted. MENU: September 1 - Closed for Labor Day September 2 - Weiners with saurkraut September 3 - Lima beans September 4 - September 5 - PAHRUMP SENIOR NEWS (702) 727-5008 UE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL THE SENIOR NEWS WAS UN- AVAILABLE AT PRESS TIME. i iii SENIOR SERVICE LINE (702) 727.5008 Several weeks ago I clipped a piece from the July 27 issue of The New York Times written by Ted M. Levine, who describes himself as 60-plus. He's the founder and chairman of a company that helps Ioc:dities attract business and tour- ism. Mr. Levine-- who admits his economic shoes don't pinch -- is in a dither because of senior citizen discounts offered by stores, airlines and other services. He says he doesn't deserve it, and what's more, by his reckoning, most seniors don't need them or want them. Yes, there are many seniors who enjoy good incomes. There are far too many who are struggling to pay their taxes so they don't lose homes they've lived in for much of their lives. There are far too many seniors whose savings are being drained by medical expenses. Other retirees have found, to their horror, that the pensions they counted on, and to which they contributed over the years, have disappeared in the wake of all those mega mergers that continue to take place in the corporate world. ii Odentai Futons Furniture Gifts A Beautiful... 1997 Oriental Calendar!! & a Letter Opened!
