18 Thursday, September 4, 1997 Pahrump Valley Gazette Senior News m AMARGOSA SENIOR NEWS (702) 372-5413 Irene Osterhoudt Well, they tell me no news is good news. The Project Council approved a wall arch being put in the wall between the lounge area and the dining area to be able to accommodate the smokers in a room all their own, but we hit a snag, our contractor does not have a Nevada contractor's license. We have written to Pau!to see if he may still be able to do the job. Let's hope. We want our regulars who are not coming to again join us, remember when the project is completed the dining area will be smoke-free.
