Congress, Richard & Jackie
by Vern Perry, NSC President
Originally published on  January 10, 2013 - reprinted with permission

  Well a new year and a new Congress but I bet the same old politics.  Nothing will get done again to help the country but a lot will be done for the money men to ensure the gang will be re-elected.
  I'm glad I'm old.


   I visited former NSC Board Member Richard Thomas at an assisted living facility, located on Harmon near Eastern, where he has been since last year after he was found disoriented and wandering in the desert at the end of Vegas Valley Road by some hikers.
   He is in good health and has gained weight. The facility seems to be well managed and takes good care of the patients.
  For those of you who wish to write call or visit him you can contact him at:

        The Bridge of Paradise Valley
        2205 East Harmon Avenue
        Room 222
        Las Vegas, NV 89119
        (702) 369-6064


   Iím sure some of you remember Jackie Ridley. She was an extremely active lady in many organizations and was a member and officer of NSC long before I was in Nevada.
   Her Christmas card was returned the other day by the United States Postal Service with "Deceased" printed in large letters on the front of envelope.
                             .   .   .  RIP Jackie
