During the March 20 Churchill County Commission meeting, 11 employees were recognized for their years of service to this community.

Two long-serving retiring employees, Human Resources Director Geof Stark and Building Official Marie Henson, were honored for their combined 49 years of service to the community with gifts and remarks from County Manager Jim Barbee. Stark’s final day with the county was March 23, while Henson will leave in May. County staff had the opportunity to thank them both at a reception held in their honor later that evening.

Raeburn Sottile, Curator at the Churchill County Museum, was recognized by the Commissioners for his outstanding work designing and assembling the branding iron display at the Rafter 3C Arena in time for a special dedication event on February 16, 2024.

The following employees were honored for their tenure of service to the county:

Each quarter, the Commissioners present plaques and lapel pins to county employees for every five years of service to our local community.

One of my most favorite stories Paul told dated back to the late 60s or early 70s and it revolved around him killing a deer way out in the mountains. Naturally the deer ran down into a deep canyon and died. Knowing that it would take him forever to haul it out he devised an awesome plan. After preparing the deer he drove back to NAS Fallon and rustled up a SAR crew and they flew out and picked up the deer. Of course it was labeled as a training flight but what the hell in those days you could do that sort of thing. Rest in Peace my friend until we meet again!!Comment publication date: 4/11/24, 1:15 PMComment source: Obituary - LCDR Paul N PflimlinComment author: THughesComment text: So sad to hear.
