Out Esmeralda Way by Carol Sirnes It was 28 degrees at 7 a.m. on Monday, November 10, with frost on the windshield. Time tO bring in those three small pumpkins from the garden and make soup from them. The fire in the wood-stove really feels good, but by noon we should be able to open the doors. That soup sure tasted good. Goldfield residents awoke to two inches of snow on Tuesday, November 11. Winter is here. History class tours Goldfield On November 6, the Round Mountain seventh grade social studies class visited Goldfield with Virginia Ridgway and Slim Sirnes being the tour guides. The students are studying Nevada history and just recently made a trip to the Owens Valley Paiute-Shoshone Indian Cultural Center in Bishop, Calif. A tour of the town by bus was first on the agenda with Virginia and Slim relating the history of the town, including the flood of 1913 and the fire of July 6, 1923, which destroyed 54 city blocks. The first stop was the Esmeralda County Courthouse, built in 1907, and still in use. The tour guide here was Sarah Ridgway who really enjoys showing visitors the courthouse, especially the courtroom where the students took photos of each other sitting in the judges chair. Second stop was the Goldfield Hotel where some were hoping to see a ghost or two. (Theday before Slim had stood his headless aluminum statue of Willie in the room where the ghost supposedly appears.) Some of the class took pictures of him. At lunchtime, the next stop was at the Mozart Club, where they meet their hosts Bill and Shirley Schultz, who were expecting them. With extra help on hand, they had an enjoy- able lunch and were served in record time. Back to the Goldfield Hotel to check out more rooms, then on to the Gloryhole Giftshop, then on the bus headed for home. Miss Cable, seventh grade teacher, organizes all the class field trips. The school bus drivers were Susan Rodgers (bus driver for nine years) and Mrs. Harwood, (bus driver for seven years.) Guidance counselor is Jim Anderson along with Jim Felland as chaperones. Students were Shantel Bowen, Brandi Pauley, Robert Smith, Deziree Smith, Kristal Rodrigues, Brittney Gil, Teri Severn, Katherine Kasten, Jamie Everbgerd, JoAnna Brown, Amanda Haslem, Blaise Berg, Ben Bariow, Travis Petty, Jeremy Mareow, David Cassity, Jay Jones, Tyler Harwood, Mike Phillips, Kyle Turk, John Williams, John Hartley, Michael Felland, Kelly Warren, Richard Carrabo, Jesse Henderson, BreAnna Martinez, Lori Engel, Rocky Nunly, Savanneh Miller and John Granillo. The group wishes to thank Virginia Ridgway for coordi- nating this trip, the staff at the Mozart Club, Sarah Ridgway and Slim Sirnes for a very interesting tour of Goldfield.

Another rocket flight over Goldfield A Boeing Delta 11 rocket carrying a cluster of satellites launched successfully Saturday, November 8 from Vandenberg Air Force Base in Calif., creating a spectacular light show that could be seen in the Las Vegas Valley, 300 miles away. Witnesses said the light display resembled the Aurora Borealis. The swath of color that blazed across the twilight sky was caused by light reflecting from propellant particles as the rocket fired at 5:34 p.m., said Air Force Sergeant Michael Ward. The light show from the launch was seen as far was as 130 miles southeast of Los Angeles, 200 miles to the north in Modesto and several hundred miles to the southeast in Ari- zona in the Yuma and Tuscon areas. * This article was taken from the Las Vegas Review Journal.
