I would just like to say THANK-YOU for getting the county manager out of Lyon County employment. The man is a lier and has no interest in making any improvements for the people of Lyon County. Hopefully Lyon County commissioners will see and find others that don't do anything for their pay check either. Think of how much money Lyon County could save in money if they had employees that work and just don't sat at a office everyday because their employed to collect a check ,not just earn a check.

Its obvious nonie was unemplyed due to the grammatical mishaps in her rant. Stark was probably the best manager weve had, and its obvious the commissioners have alterior motives when the going gets tough. Being the manager is not an easy position to begin with, especially when everyone in dire times such as these is looking at you as an evil doer when tough decisions have to be made.

Jerry Wells is the son of Sharon Wells Stark and Dennis Stark. Kind of sad when your own son changes his name ... if he is the son of Dennis to begin with. Jerry, keep your nose in Denver where it belongs. You have no idea who the best County Manager Lyon County has ever had. You have never lived here.

Perhaps you would like to speak with someone from a small city in Litchfield concerning Dennis Stark's time as City Manager. Misappropriations, misconduct, etc. were allegations surrounding Mr. Stark when he left this city.

Mr. Stark was found in willful violation of the Ethic Law in Nevada. Search for the record on the Nevada Commission on Ethics, Request for Opinion No. 10-48C.

Dennis Stark is trouble at all ends. He was manager in Litchfield Michigan in the Parks and Recreation field. He ran into ethnical problems over there. So he comes to Yerington Nevada to ruin the lives of others. Why didn't someone do a background check on this Stark go before he was hired???? That sounds resonable to me. Stark is a liar and a cheat. He goes to Holy Family Church where he claims to be a Christian. What Christian goes around and does the things Stark does? I hope he's not involved in the church funds. The Devil has Stark by the throat. Stark has no conscious. Jerry Wells changed his name to Jeremiah Stark. I personally don't believe that Jerry (Jeremiah) is the son of Dennis. Jerry wanted to have Dennis go in and have a paternity test taken years ago but Dennis refused. Dennis should be prosecuted to the full extent of the Ethics Law. The people who's lives were ruined should also file charges against Dennis for harrassment and threats. Why should Dennis get away with anything. He's a disgrace. And one more thing, and this is to Jerry. If you think that Dennis did an awesome job being Manager of Lyon County, you are greatly mistake. You need to take your blinders off and see Dennis for who he is. All he wants is total control over everybody and he doesn't give a rats behind who he hurts just as long as things go his way and he's making the most money possible. Dennis needs psychiatric help and needs to change his evil ways in life.

Dennis Stark has been caught with his pants down. It's about time people come down on this man and bring him out for who he really is. I commend the people of Lyon County for not taking any of Starks crap. Who is afraid of Virginia Wolf aka Dennis Stark? NO BODY! Stark has 11 counts of allegations to his name. May the good people of Lyon County stand up for what's right in their town. Who needs liars and crooks like Stark? Jerry, please see the real light. Thank you.

Are you all talking about Lyin' County or what? Dennis Stark was bad news however he was let go with one of those pretty parachutes, in other words, he was given quite a bit of unearned pay to be on his way. I personally think that every County Commissioner and any administrators (past and present) who had anything to do with hiring this fellow should give back their pay and be stripped of any retirement pensions they may have earned while committing this atrocity. All the money should go to a fund to help out the communities and folks who have suffered in so many ways, especially financially, especially in Silver Springs when it comes to property values (for instance when it comes to proceeds for a reverse mortgage) which have been down as far as 90% since he presided as County Manager and in 2007 cancelled Code Enforcement. This of course gives no excuse to the current Commissioners who have yet to fund the position while derelict structures sit and junkyard properties spring up all across the county. My opinion is that they are all remiss in their duty to protect the quality of life for the citizens and just keep making decisions that are embarrassing, irresponsible, and incomprehensibly dumb. Since this seems to be a problem all across our great nation, what say we do something about it soon? Start by voting and cleaning up your own yard and look in a mirror, do you look your best today? Are you wearing a smile?
