    Controversy continued last week over the Pershing County Senior Center this time during public comment at the County Commission meeting. Unhappy senior citizens told county leaders they and others had been “kicked out” of the facility but it was not clear who kicked them out or why.
    “This is about the senior center. I was supposed to bring my other friend with me today but she is ill, she has kidney disease, and she couldn’t come,” said one of two seniors at the meeting. “She was kicked out of the senior center for over a year. Same thing happened to me.”

    A proposal to search for a county manager was rejected by a vote of two to one at last week’s Pershing County Commission meeting. Commissioner Carol Shank argued in favor of the position that she said could streamline county management and improve community relations.

    It’s not uncommon to see undomesticated cats roaming the city, but thanks to some volunteers, many of them have been fixed in order to relieve the burden that a high population of feral cats can have on the community. Members of the Winnemucca City Council voted unanimously at the May 10 meeting to allow the volunteers the continued use of a facility at Sage Heights and to meet 100 percent of the spay and neuter costs for the local feral cats only. Councilman Jim Billingsley absent.

    A courtroom is not a place where you expect to find scenes of celebration and tears of joy. Unless, of course, it’s treatment court. This May, treatment courts throughout Nevada will join the nearly 4,000 such programs nationwide in celebrating National Drug Court Month. This year alone, more than 150,000 individuals nationwide who entered the justice system due to addiction will receive lifesaving treatment and the chance to repair their lives, reconnect with their families, and find long-term recovery. National Drug Court Month is a celebration of the lives restored by treatment court, and it sends the powerful message that these programs must be expanded to reach more people in need.

    Modifications for People Living with Dementia Part 2
    Last week I shared some tips for creating the ideal home for people as they age and also for considering potential changes in cognition.

    “There's no telling what we'll find in Lake Mead,” former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman said Monday. “It's not a bad place to dump a body.”
    Goodman, as a lawyer, represented mob figures including the ill-fated Anthony “Tony the Ant” Spilotro before serving three terms as a martini-toting mayor making public appearances with a showgirl on each arm.
