"Tlursday, September 25. 1997 Pahrump Valley Gazeite  Congrats to Nye County Sheriff's Dept. A few weeks ago there was an article in the PVGazette about the NCSO. Seems that our esteemed sheriff's department is the "best in the west." It reinforces my opinion, voiced so many times in this column. According to an article by the Associated Press, the Nye County Sheriff's Department has the highest crime clearance rate in the state of Nevada. In fact, the article points out that the NCSO rate is nearly double the national average. At the same time Sheriff Lleseke humbles himself and gives the credit, not to himself like most politicians would grab, but to his officers and staff. "I have the best personnel in the state. Best detective's division in the state. Statistics speak for themselves," he stated. That's a proud accomplishment for a department that only a few years ago was In serious trouble. NCSO deputies, and staff, can stand proud. They have attained the status of "professionals." These men and women deserve our gratitude m and they have it. Everyone I've talked to about the NCSO, even those who used to talk down about the department, agree that the department is no longer the Mickey Mouse outfit of the past. They are at the top ranks of professionalism in their field. They are a respected entity. You've come a long way NCSO, and we're all proud of you. Best I can tell, the only ones left that criticize the NCSO are those who have taken advantage of the free room and board program. I like that. [ II I I II II Let's license all tetras I was glad to see the animal control ordinance thrown out by the commissioners. With all the important things that the county needs to worry about this was at the bottom of the list, yet the commissioners let it consume so much time. Nonsense! Get a life commissioners. You've forgotten the basic premise in Nye County. People come here to escape the stupid laws enforced upon them by politicians with a personal gripe. There is lawsuit after lawsuit being slammed against this county for very serious matters. The county is on the verge of bankruptcy. And what are you concerned with? Gotta license every cat in the county. Good grief. And let's make it dear, it wasn't the commissioners that tossed out this law. It was the people. But, the Nye County Five have forgotten about the people. Stop thinking about new laws and start worrying about the condi- tion Nye County is in, financially and governmentally. It's time for a change, folks. The way the county commissioners work, I'!1 bet a dollar to a doughnut that eventually someone with a personal "in" would have been hired, at about $100,O00-a-Year , to go around the county checking every cat for a license. Let's require a license for every aquarium that has tropical fish. In fact, we could require a license be around the gills of every tetra in the county. Are we ever going to get down to business? L All are hmatics, but he who can analy=e his delusions is called a lhilosopher. Targe by Joe Richards from the Kinffdom of Nye Whether you hate him or love him, he won't let you igrlore him!
