Hospital ignored neighborhood wants
Good story, however the Saint Mary’s fitness center closure (RN&R, April 2023) was a chilly determination by PrimeHealth (Saint Mary’s Well being dad or mum firm) to disregard the wants of the neighborhood. Native information reported there have been 2,600 lively members at a minimal of $60 per thirty days, which is over $150K per thirty days. They simply don’t wish to run a fitness center despite the fact that it’s/was worthwhile. Worst is the adverse impression on the neighborhood. (The) variety of members was growing for the reason that pandemic shutdown. I used to be a member for over 15 years and there day-after-day. PrimeHealth simply doesn’t care.

Ghost Military exhibit is price seeing
Thanks for the story in regards to the Ghost Military exhibit (RN&R, April 2023). Our household went to see it (on the Nevada Museum of Artwork) and have been amazed at part of historical past we had not heard of earlier than. The exhibit is effectively performed and offers you a style of what these troopers did to idiot the Nazis, right down to the inflatable tank and the pretend radio broadcasts. We extremely advocate a go to. – Sally Boniface, Sparks
Grimm off base about John Wick 4
Each Bob Grimm’s evaluation of John Wick 4 (RN&R, April 2023) and the film itself may have benefitted from a seasoned editor. To contradict Mr. Grimm the primary installment was the very best, it was the beginning of the story and the beginning of the again story. Mr.Grimm waxes about pictures of Paris after they have little to do with the movie. The Da Vinci Code is healthier fitted to cinematic views of Paris.
The fourth installment doesn’t embrace Halle Berry’s character Sofia, who performed a big function in JW3. We additionally by no means see what occurs to Aurelio, performed brilliantly by John Leguizamo, the one individual John Wick trusts along with his automobile, the one factor he beloved greater than his useless spouse. It’s apparent (Grimm) “phoned this one in”. There may be additionally no point out of Abram, the scorned Russian from JW2, John killed his nephew and destroyed his enterprise within the first 5 minutes and but no point out of any of those prime characters within the evaluation or the 4th installment.
The movie was Chad Stahelski’s homage to video video games watched by 14 12 months olds who haven’t felt a girl’s contact, not true followers of John Wick. The struggle scenes have been ridiculous and went approach too lengthy in opposition to a bland canvas of no story and new characters that no one is aware of or pertains to. Grimm must do his homework earlier than spending the $10 you gave him to go to the flicks. My score is 2 out of 5 stars for the movie and the evaluation. — Jackson Morris, Reno
Nation wants Nevada lithium mine
In response to the letter in regards to the Lithium mine at Thatcher Move (RN&R, April 2023) and about how the BLM may grant them permits for this. The 1872 Mining Legislation offers the lithium mine permission to do exactly that and (mining) is how our state grew to become a part of the Union in 1864. I’ve a tough time understanding the environmentalists’ positions in addition to a number of the Native Individuals’ positions. That space may be very depressed a part of Nevada which might provide jobs for lots of Native Individuals in addition to save the planet from international warming (and) to also have a Native American tradition to save lots of. I imagine we should always all shield the surroundings however we don’t have to surrender our lifestyle to realize it. Lithium manufacturing is a nationwide safety difficulty and to have the Chinese language utilizing slave labor to mine for this uncommon mineral is sort of being a hypocrite to our nation’s values. Thatcher Move is just not on anybody’s trip agenda as a result of it’s in the midst of nowhere and most Nevadans don’t even know the place it’s. I’ve been to this space and it’s in an important place to place this operation as a result of it’s away from main inhabitants facilities. I’m in assist of the undertaking to get us off fossil fuels utilizing American expertise for the well being of the planet.
