October has come and gone bringing with it a new home for ARW, Spanish Trail
Country Club. Two months ago, ARW was advised that Le Cordon Bleu College
of Culinary Arts would be dropping its evening student program. Martha Kimpel
and Barbara Altman met with Spanish Trail while I was in Kansas City attending
the NFRW Convention. Two of Martha’s friends who are now new members,
Carmen Kordogiannis and Mildred Cympl, provided the recommendation for
ARW to use Spanish Trail. Thank you ladies!!! For those of you at the 20th
event with the Governor, I think you will agree that the food, service and
surroundings are impeccable. And to those of you, who have not yet come,
please check it out at our November 10th meeting – see details in this newsletter!
Thank you again to our ARW ladies that made this happen!
On September 29th, I flew to Kansas City, MO to join Cherie Wood, ARW’s 2nd
VP, and the Nevada Delegation for the 2010-2011 NFRW Biennial Convention to
elect the new NFRW Executive Board. I am pleased to announce that the
Federation’s new President will be Rae Trenecke from Arizona. Highlights of the
event included speeches by some of the Presidential Candidates (Herman Cain,
Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum), and several Governors (Jan Brewer of AZ,
Scott Walker of WI, and Luis Fortuno of Puerto Rico).
ARW won several awards at this convention. First, for the 2010 & 2011
Biennium, ARW was awarded the Diamond Award for Achievement, the highest
award possible! Secondly, ARW won a Club Award for having the highest
increase of any Nevada Club in 2010 for membership, 42.9%. Last, Cherie
Wood won an Individual Membership Achievement Award for recruiting 10 full
members in 2011. Congratulations to Active Republican Women who worked so
hard to make these awards happen, and to Cherie, for her going above and
beyond to win an individual award.
Flying home on October 2, I unpacked, did laundry and packed again leaving
Thursday October 6th for Minden, NV to attend the NvFRW’s Biennial
Convention, this time to elect Nevada’s new Executive Board. With me were the
6 Delegates you elected: Barbara Altman, Eleanor Mills, Stephanie Reeder,
Victoria DeLaGuerra Seaman, Trish Trowbridge and Cherie Wood. Also in
attendance were Melody Howard, NvFRW 2nd VP Membership, and Martha
Kimpel, NvFRW Achievement Awards. Effective January 1, 2012 these will be
NvFRW’s new officers: President Maraya Evans, 1st VP Programs Vicky
Maltman, 2nd VP Membership Cherie Wood (Yeah ARW!) Secretary Linda
Graham, Treasurer Mary Jane Archer, Northern Director Mike Hules and
Southern Director Maureen Karas (Yeah ARW).
ARW received awards at this convention too! Under Cherie Wood’s membership
lead, ARW received the NvFRW Membership Award for increasing membership
by 32% from 2009 to 2011! Thank you Cherie and to all who brought in new

Also, special “service” awards were given from Senator
Dean Heller’s Office, which turned out to be a big surprise.
Melody Howard answered a call for help from North Valleys
Republican Women President Vicky Maltman to assist a 70year old Veteran woman. In dire straits, the lady had to be
moved from her home immediately. Melody emailed a call
for help to the ARW board and organized movers. Maureen
Karas answered Melody’s call and made a personal
donation. Both Melody and Maureen were honored with the
awards at the banquet. Here is another example why ARW
is such a dynamic club!
After returning from Minden, it was time to visit and make
finishing touches on ARW’s October 20th inaugural event at
Spanish Trail Country Club. It was a full house with 180
people! The meeting was packed with excitement! Two
talented singers made the evening very special. Peggy
Micco Koning sang the National Anthem and Gary Anthony,
a guest of Evelyn Cannestra and the “Phantom of the
Opera” singer/entertainer, sang a special song in honor of
Governor Brian Sandoval, Frank Sinatra’s “Winners”.
Kate Kelly, Caring for America Chair, invited guest 1st Lt.
Lorenzo Aranda up to the podium to help her position the
importance of donating to Operation Christmas Stocking
with November being the last month to donate due to the
shipping schedule. Once shipping was addressed,
Assemblyman John Hambrick announced he would donate
$250 toward shipping. NV Senator Barbara Cegavske was
quick to match with another $250. The excitement was
building and Swadeep Nigam shouted he would also match
with yet another $250. But it was not over. Mr. Gregg
Giuffira, guest of Evelyn Cannestra, offered a substantial
donation that will go a long way in funding our program this
year and next. Thank you to all our wonderful donors. And,
thank you to our blessed troops!
Last the Nevada Republican Party met October 22 at the
Venetian to elect a new Executive Board. Congrats to Amy
Tarkanian who won re-election! Please read Melody
Howard’s article in this newsletter about that event.
See you next month!

The Literacy Committee has three needs and requests:
1. Please consider using one small period of time to read to a class in any school or
preschool. Contact Molly Governs by emailing [email protected] for some tips and
short instructions. It has been brought to my attention that some companies will make
small donations to the schools on behalf of employees who volunteer their time reading
to our children in schools. Ask your employer if they do this.
2. Donations of new or gently used books for elementary aged school children are needed
as gifts to children in elementary schools to start their own home libraries.
3. The ARW has published Literacy Cards with tips to parents and caregivers of young
children on enhancing the joys of reading. Teachers, please feel free to ask for these
cards also. Once again contact Molly Governs via email ([email protected]) for large or
small quantities of these cards to distribute throughout our Las Vegas community.

The last few general meetings have been
wonderful to our troops!! And we want to
thank all who helped make that happen. So a
great big THANK YOU from our fine soldiers
as well as from us. We are going to be able to
give so much to our troops and veterans this
First, in the September meeting, we had a
very generous donation from our member
Cecilia Aldana for our veterans’ restaurant gift
cards! Thanks to her and all the other
donations, we are able to give $300 worth of
gift cards to all sorts of great restaurants like
Applebee’s, Chili’s, Outback Steakhouse, Red
Lobster and Olive Garden. We got them in
$10 and $15 increments, so we gave many
gift cards and hope that many of our veterans
enjoy a meal on us. We also got some nice
clothing and tennis shoe donations as well as
book donations that were gifted to the
Veteran’s Home. ARW really came through
for our veterans and we truly appreciate it!
Our October meeting, I had the honor of
having Lorenzo come up with me to ask for
donations. He is a First-Lieutenant in the army
who has served overseas, and his heart-felt
speech led to some incredibly generous
donors whom we would like to specifically
mention. That does not diminish all of our
bighearted donors who donate their spare
change and bills every meeting in the
porcelain piggy banks on the tables (and that
adds up!), but the following people donated
an incredible amount to help offset our
shipping which gets quite expensive. First
are Assemblyman John and Nancy Hambrick.
They have often generously donated to our
soldier cause, and we just want to say thank
you for once again helping to ship all of these
huge, heavy boxes filled to capacity with
goodies for our troops. The maximum weight
allowable for each box is 70#. Our boxes go
out at between 69.5 and 69.9# each. As we
use socks as our “bubble wrap”, if we can get
another pair of socks in the box without
making the weight go over, we do!
Senator Barbara Cegavske also very
generously donated to the troops. She has
written very generous checks for our soldiers
several times, and we want to make sure she
knows how much it is appreciated. Next to
thank is Swadeep Nigam, who is an associate
member in our club. His abundant donation
for shipping will help our troops know that
American’s back home support them and all
they do. We would also like to give special
thanks to Gregg Giuffira who made a most
considerate donation. He was a guest of
Evelyn Cannestra that night, and so to make a
contribution as he did to our cause went
above and beyond anything we could have
asked for. Thank you all so much.
Finally we would like to mention Holly Filson,
who for several campaigns has brought in
trunk loads of goodies. She also got the
Stratosphere to donate 1500 decks of cards
so soldiers and veterans can have some fun in
down time. We really appreciate all she has
done for our troops.
Thank you to everyone who has
made Caring for American Soldiers
such a success.

AT&T Calling Cards
by Melody Howard, Legislative Chair
The State Central Committee met on October 22,
2011 for it’s Fall Board Meeting, and to elect it’s
executive officers.
The body as a whole was told that same day voter
registration was not on the agenda; however, there
were many delegates who wanted to place it on
the agenda to send a message to the Republican
National Committee (RNC) that same day voter
registration was not an option in our beloved
Nevada. With the exception of a few stray no
votes, the delegates overwhelmingly voted that
they would not accept same day voter registration
for not only a primary or general election, but for a
While there were rumors that Michael McDonald
was going to run against our current Chair, Amy
Tarkanian (of Spring Mountain Republican
Women), that was quickly quashed when Mr.
McDonald came up, gave a rousing speech for
party unity and declined the nomination.
Chairwoman Tarkanian ran unopposed.
Congratulations to our New Executive Officers:
The issues of the caucus date came up as well.
The Party originally scheduled our caucus for
February 18th; however, Florida decided to “cut in
line” and move their date forward and more than
willing to lose half their delegates (48 of them).
The 4 states who were following the rules, Nevada
being one of them, were placed in a bind to either
move forward from February to January or risk
being insignificant with the presidential candidates
because we are a smaller state and were no
longer 3rd in line and 1st in the West.
The State Party decided that they would leave the
decision of the date to the Central Committee as a
whole. They debated January 14th, but under the
rules of the Republican National Committee, we
would lose ½ of our delegates. However, if we
allowed Florida their January 31st date, knowing
they would only send 48 delegates to the
convention, Nevada’s February 4th vote (with the
full 28 + delegates) became important again. The
date was moved to February 4th and Nevada will
face no penalty of losing delegates. Nevada
remains first in the West !

Women and Heart Attacks
(Myocardial infarction - MI)
Did you know that women rarely have the
same dramatic symptoms that men have
when experiencing heart attack? You
know, the sudden stabbing pain in the
chest, the cold sweat, grabbing the chest &
dropping to the floor that we see in the
movies. Here is the story of one woman's
experience with a heart attack. 'I had a heart attack at about 10:30 PM
with NO prior exertion, NO prior
emotional trauma that one would suspect
might have brought it on.. I was sitting all
snugly & warm on a cold evening, with my
purring cat in my lap, reading an
interesting story my friend had sent me,
and actually thinking, 'A-A-h, this is the
life, all cozy and warm in my soft, cushy
Lazy Boy with my feet propped up.'
A moment later, I felt that awful sensation
of indigestion, when you've been in a hurry
and grabbed a bite of sandwich and
washed it down with a dash of water, and
that hurried bite seems to feel like you've
swallowed a golf ball going down the
esophagus in slow motion and it is most
uncomfortable. You realize you shouldn't
have gulped it down so fast and needed to
chew it more thoroughly, and this time
drink, a glass of water to hasten its
progress down to the stomach. This was
my initial sensation---the only trouble was
that I hadn't taken a bite of anything since
about 5:00 p.m.
After it seemed to subside, the next
sensation was like little squeezing motions
that seemed to be racing up my SPINE
(hind-sight, it was probably aorta spasms),
gaining speed as they continued racing up
and under my sternum (breast bone, where
one presses rhythmically when
administering CPR).
This fascinating process continued on into
my throat and branched out into the jaw. 'AHA!!' NOW I stopped puzzling about
what was happening -- we all have read
and/or heard about pain in the jaws being
one of the signals of an MI happening,
haven't we? I said aloud to myself and the
cat, 'Dear God, I think I'm having a heart
I lowered the foot rest dumping the cat
from my lap, started to take a step, and fell
on the floor instead. I thought to myself, 'If
this is a heart attack, I shouldn't be walking
into the next room where the phone is or
anywhere else ... but, on the other hand, if I
don't, nobody will know that I need help,
and if I wait any longer I may not be able
to get up.'
I pulled myself up with the arms of the
chair, walked slowly into the next room
and dialed the Paramedics. I told her I
thought I was having a heart attack due to
the pressure building under the sternum
and radiating into my jaws. I didn't feel
hysterical or afraid, just stating the facts...
She said she was sending the Paramedics
over immediately, asked if the front door
was near to me, and if so, to un-bolt the
door and then lie down on the floor where
they could see me when they came in. I unlocked the door and then laid down on
the floor as instructed and lost
consciousness, as I don't remember the
medics coming in, their examination,
lifting me onto a gurney or getting me into
their ambulance, or hearing the call they
made to St. Jude ER on the way, but I did
briefly awaken when we arrived and saw
that the radiologist was already there in his
surgical blues and cap, helping the medics
pull my stretcher out of the ambulance. He
was bending over me asking questions
(probably something like 'Have you taken
any medications?'), but I couldn't make my
mind interpret what he was saying, or form
an answer, and nodded off again, not
waking up until the Cardiologist and
partner had already threaded the teeny
angiogram balloon up my femoral artery
into the aorta and into my heart where they
installed 2 side-by-side stents to hold open
my right coronary artery.
I know it sounds like all my thinking and
actions at home must have taken at least
20-30 minutes before calling the
paramedics, but actually it took perhaps
4-5 minutes before the call, and both the
fire station and St. Jude are only minutes
away from my home, and my Cardiologist
was already to go to the OR in his scrubs
and get going on restarting my heart
(which had stopped somewhere between
my arrival and the procedure) and
installing the stents. Why have I written all of this to you with
so much detail? Because I want all of you
who are so important in my life to know
what I learned first hand.
1. Be aware that something very different
is happening in your body, not the usual
men's symptoms but inexplicable things
happening (until my sternum and jaws got
into the act). It is said that many more
women than men die of their first (and last)
MI because they didn't know they were
having one and commonly mistake it as
indigestion, take some Maalox or other
anti-heartburn preparation and go to bed,
hoping they'll feel better in the morning
when they wake up .... which doesn't
happen. My female friends, your
symptoms might not be exactly like mine,
so I advise you to call the Paramedics if
ANYTHING is unpleasantly happening
that you've not felt before. It is better to
have a 'false alarm' visitation than to risk
your life guessing what it might be
2. Note that I said 'Call the Paramedics.'
And if you can take an aspirin. Ladies,
try to drive yourself to the ER - you are a
hazard to others on the road. Do NOT
have your panicked husband drive you. He
will be speeding and looking anxiously at
what's happening with you instead of the
road. Do NOT call your doctor -- he
doesn't know where you live and if it's at
night you won't reach him anyway, and if
it's daytime, his assistants (or answering
service) will tell you to call the
Paramedics.. He doesn't carry the
equipment in his car that you need to be
saved! The Paramedics do, principally
OXYGEN that you need ASAP. Your Dr.
will be notified later. 3. Don't assume it couldn't be a heart attack
because you have a normal cholesterol
count. Research has discovered that a
cholesterol elevated reading is rarely the
cause of an MI (unless it's unbelievably
high and/or accompanied by high blood
pressure). MI's are usually caused by longterm stress and inflammation in the body,
which dumps all sorts of deadly hormones
into your system to sludge things up in
there. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a
sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know the better chance we
could survive... NvFRW Annual Convention in Minden, NV
