His vehicle was wise spin that resulted in a single car rollover on Thursday, thrown into a clockwise spin. As he began to regain control of August 28 at 6:15 p.m. his vehicle, it hit a dip or a rut on the side of the road causing it Jason Link, 21, stated while traveling on Vicki Ann south- to roll over approximately one and a half times before coming to rest on its side. "I did not receive any injuries except a small scratch on my arm. I was really lucky, my truck was not," Link said. "I did have a seat belt on which helped save me, the top of my truck was completely caved in. I just had my brakes completely done with new fluid, here in town just nine days ago. I just don't know what could have happened." Sergeant Bill Becht of the Nye County Sheriffs Office stated that Link had been traveling the speed limit, but his vehicle seemed to have experienced some sort of problem with his front right brake, which sent his vehicle in the spin, skidding about 20- 30 feet. Then the truck began to roll over, coming to a complete stop on its side. The vehicle was totally destroyed, but the driver received only a minor scratch. [,, LDS church angry over teachers leaving NCSD by Mary Lamar PAHRUMP- Bishop Steve Rainbolt with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS), expressed considerable con- cern over the amount of teachers leaving the Nye County School District (NCSD), at the latest hool board meeting August 27. it since you went away Many tears have streamed my face even tho ! know you're in a better place You're missed so very very much your smile, your ways, your gentle touch A large number of LDS families had informed the church that their children's teachers were leaving the school district because of intolerable working conditions. The parents told the church their children were confused over the loss of their teachers. Reasons for the teachers leaving were over crowded classrooms, shortage of books and a lack of support from the district to build adequate schools, Rainbolt stated. Members of the School Board quickly pointed out that the information parents received was completely erroneous. Jerry Hill, principal of the Pahrump Valley High School, stated that the high school lost seven teachers this past school year. Motivation for the teachers leaving ranged from, "A spouse who had been out of work received a job offer out of state, to two teachers with poor performance evaluations were dismissed, but none of them complained of poor working conditions," Hill said. Marijo Rymer, assistant to the superintendent stated NCSD was one of the top rated districts within the state, teachers with NCSD usually stayed with the district on an average of 5-15 years. Although the NCSD presented charts and graphs to show Rainbolt the teachers were not leaving the area in swarms, as the church had been told, it appeared that NCSD did not in anyway address the church's original concern, Rainbolt said. Rainbolt stated he would continue to speak with the families and get to the bottom of this ongoing dilemma. In Loving Memory of Harold V.
