Letter: cheated of fireworks

by P. Pruett

I would like to thank our capital city of Nevada (Carson City) for cheating their residents and hard-working taxpayers out of a party and fireworks! I feel cheated and my children felt cheated out of fireworks on the millennium 2000 year. Our own town officials couldn’t come up with something for the New Year’s celebration for us? We are the capital city of our state!

That was a life-long disappointment for some of us. How nice that you had all that extra cash to fix up the Governor’s Mansion.

Maybe we could lobby our state to make Las Vegas our state capital because they get all the special attention and we get none, not even a 2000 New Year’s celebration! Thanks for the memories.
