Pahrump Valley Gazette, Thuray, September 25, 1997 AA1 Saddle West begins RV Park construction Saddle West Casino in Pahrump an- nounced September 24 the beginning of con- struction on its next phase of development, the addition of a Five Star RV Park. This will be the f'LrSt Five Star RV Park constructed in Pahrump, and will be located on Highway 160. The new park will be fully paved, in- cluding all roads and spaces, and will be surrounded by a fully landscaped park set- ring with covered guest table areas to allow guests to enjoy Pahrump's great outdoor weather. The RV Park will have full utility hookups, including multi-amp power, water, sewer and cable TV. The RV support build- ing will include a laundry, showers and rest rooms. All of the paved RV Park spaces and roads will be extra wide to allow for ease of access and use. Saddle West has limited the number of RV Park spaces to create a roomier park that will enhance the Saddle West prop- erty and the entire Pahrump downtown area. The separate paved tour bus and truck park- ing area will also be used as a special event area for popular outdoor functions. This RV Park should be opened before Christmas, 1997. This is only the fir t of several additional development projects 3addle West has sched- uled for 1997 and 1998. Future projects include a new hotel tower addition, further casino additions, a new exterior facade and entrance, a new steak house, and expansion and renovation of the existing kitchen and dining room. All of these development projects will be built in the "Old Las Vegas" style of architecture used in Saddle West's recent interior and exterior renovations and additions. Even though the Pahrump hotel-casino market is currently overbuilt (similar to the market saturation that has negatively im- pacted Mesquite and Laughlin), Saddle West intends to complete all of these future expan- sion projects due to the unique location and size of its property, extensive knowledge of the local market, and financial stability. SADDLE BROKE- Mind Lundy marketing, and hotel nmnager, Bill Gallaway mark the spot to the north of the casino and hotel where Saddle West's new RV Park will be built.

"The English Patient" takes enduring patience by Barney Basin Gazette Reviewer "The English Patient" is a story of infidelity told through a series of choppy flashbacks. It is also a three hour viewing, which if you're watching it with your mate may be more than many of you have spent together since the honeymoon. The film is a beautiful bit of cinematography. Director Anthony Minghella uses his camera like brushes and paints a breath taking location for his story to unfold. Unfortunately, it's a very labored unfolding. When you slip the second video into the VCR, two questions come to mind. What, if anything, is going to happen next, and do I care? Kristin Scott Thomas is very good as the woman who chooses to have an affair with Ralph Fiennes' character. The only problems were, it was unbelievable. Kristin plays a woman who has a successful fun loving husband who adores her. He also claims she ishis best friend. All the head shrinks say that this is an important ingredient in a successful mar- riage. So why is she willing to leave this to carry on with a man who has the constant demeanor of having supped on sauerkraut and scorpions. True, there is more to this story than cheating passions. There is hinting of spying for the enemy and the standard "Don't Trust Anyone," but these elements of the story are more chopped up than a busy butcher's blocks. Juliette Binoche plays the Allied nurse who stops off with the English patient in what appears to have been an Italian monastery. Here she ministers to his dying days while healing herself of battle scars. She plays the character with compas- sion and understanding. Her's is the best performance in the film and well deserving of her Academy Award. If you have the patience, "The English Patient" might be rewarding. 1. 6. 2. 7. tl. t00t00rold 9. 00nto"00 I III II II G p. L IlWV. 312 lrd 727-5010 k I
