6 Thursday, October 9, 1997 Pahrump Valley Gazette i JvLst another Goldfield day So, here I am. Driving through the lonely and desolate desert around midnight. I'm approaching Goldfield when all of a sudden there's a series of huge BOOMS. KA-BOOM, KA-BOOM -- six times. I slam on the brakes, jump out of the car and cast my eyes into the sky. A huge fireball descends from the heavens. WHOOSH! KA- BOOM. "My gosh," I scream at the empty highway, "What is it?" I stand there completely dumbfounded by what has occurred. As quickly as it started it ended. After a few minutes I get back in my car and continue on toward Goldfield. My mind goes to work on the fantastic events that have happened before me. Space aliens? Naw, they wouldn't be interested in Goldfield. Maybe it's the ghosts of the Goldfield Hotel? Nope. Too far away for that. I know. t It's a commissioners meeting. Sure. Makes sense. Sure thought I had it all figured out. Then came the news. Just a misguided rocket. If it had landed on the courthouse then I'd have been it was a commissioners meeting. It could have been worse. I wonder if it had landed in Slim's backyard, would he have noticed? If it had hit the Goldfield Hotel it would have been their first check-in in how long?
