  • LET'S SWIM! Pool Etiquette
    Saturday, July 04, 2015 10:00 PM
    Posted signs admonish Lovelock swimmers not to cuss, spit, snap their towels or double spring off the diving board. Running and pushing are also forbidden at the popular Community Pool which requires patrons to shower before entering. All of these are reasonable rules. But there are no official guidelines about using the restroom before diving in- or making sure that your little ones do. For that we rely on etiquette, common sense and an emerging knowledge of the science involved.

    Friends and colleagues of long-time children’s librarian, Roberta Johnson, gathered to wish her farewell this past Friday. Karen Wesner from the County Commissioners Office presented San Antonio-bound Johnson with a gold watch, a certificate of appreciation and a commemorative pin, all embossed with the Pershing County seal. Library director, Kathie Brinkerhoff, praised Johnson for her calm demeanor under the unpredictable situations that sometimes arise when working with children. Jeanne Munk, who taught the children’s story hour in the years prior to Johnson’s tenure, complimented her on her success with the program.

    All fireworks are illegal in Pershing County and possession of the explosives is a misdemeanor with a hefty fine for each incendiary device, Sheriff Jerry Allen said. The explosives can cause severe personal injuries when they blow up unexpectedly and are a brush fire hazard in the increasingly dry conditions.
     
  • Pershing County offices bring out the stars and stripes
    Thursday, July 02, 2015 1:00 AM
    Some were subtle while others were more flamboyant. The District Court Office took an educational approach to Pershing County Safety Coordinator Pam Munk’s challenge, which was to celebrate America. Besides displaying copies of the Bill of Rights, Emancipation Proclamation and Constitution, Carol Elerick and Dawn Bequette researched a little-known historical fact: Although George Washington was the first president under the Constitution, John Hanson (1715-1783) and six other men who served under the Articles of the Confederation were arguably the first seven presidents of the United States.

    Thursday, July 02, 2015 1:00 AM
    Pershing County Sheriff Jerry Allen shook his head in frustration as he patrolled the roof of the 40-year-old county jail last week. There were no escaped prisoners, just aging air conditioning units that refused to comply with the sheriff’s orders as the outside temperature threatened to exceed 90 degrees.
