District 8 is a vast space

I wanted to respond to the Caltrans truck in Pahrump, Nev. (Reader Input, April 29). District 8 covers a lot of desert. In many cases the only available housing which has the normal services people must have is across the state line. There are many maintenance vehicles that are on call for those lonely roads in the eastern county. This could be the case of the Caltrans vehicle in the letter. Though it may seen strange, sometimes it is the best solution to get the job done. Stephen McKee, Moreno Valley
