Recently, while researching the Nevada Revised Statutes, it became apparent to me that our legislators have definitely, always had a positive direction in which they desired our public leaders to proceed toward the fulfillment of their responsibilities to the people of Nevada. It was certainly not their intention that politicians or bureaucrats at any level of government should make their decisions based on what is expeditious, or easier on them as a governing body. Any action considered, should be deliberated on the basis of, ?what is the best final outcome of this action for the people we are representing?? The questions that should always be foremost in their debates are: ?How will this action affect the quality of life of our constituents? Is this the right action to take for the people??
In chapter 651 of the Nevada Revised Statutes it became very clear to me, when I read these words: ?Equal enjoyment of public accommodations for the use and benefit of all the inhabitants of the town.? It went on to clarify by saying places of public gatherings, any gymnasium, health spa or places of exercise or recreation intended for public use.
It is very apparent to me that our past legislators had a desire to provide for the people, the probability of the very best possible pursuit of health and happiness that could be made available to them. Since the birth of our great nation, it has always been prominently stated that, ?Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,? are our primary and inalienable rights.
We are all very much aware that our happiness often hangs precariously on our ability to maintain our personal health. If we are able to stay healthy, happiness is so much more an achievable goal. Just at a time when our federal government is mired in debate over an allusive health care plan to provide affordable healthcare for all of us, our local town government has taken away our only fully equipped public health facility! All of the equipment in this public exercise room has been provided by many different residents over the years to make health, and happiness, and achievable goal for all of us.
It?s my hope that as you read this letter to the editor, you will come to realize the need in our community for just such a health facility to be available (again) to all of us whenever we may need it. This will be a topic of discussion at the next Pioche Town Board meeting which is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, Dec. 10. I hope to see you there.
Clint Moore Sr., Pioche
Thanks to Grover C. Dils
I have to give a big thank you to the Grover C. Dils hospital staff for their care in my situation last Friday, Nov. 29. And to the Lincoln County Sheriff?s Department for getting the hospitals ready to transport me.
Because of your preparedness, you all helped save my life.
I arrived and the staff was ready and prepped me for surgery. I was flighted to Utah, where doctors could perform my surgery. The doctor said the only reason I survived was due to the care you all gave me.
The Washburn Family sends you all our appreciation.
