Letter to editor

May 24, 2016

Sheriff’s Message, Week May 15th

Community Friends,

What a fast paced week for the LCSO as one deputy clearly stated, “Sheriff, I think summer is upon us.” It was with great sadness that we were able to bring Toni Davis home to her family and friends.

 In 2005, businessman Jim Rogers took control of the Nevada System of Higher Education. In exchange for his services, Rogers asked for $1 in annual compensation.
