  • Submitted to the Optic

    Mora Elementary School students spent two days celebrating Black History Month by learning about the enslaved people in New Orleans.

    The students learned of how the people relentlessly toiled in an unjust system, while working and counting down the days until Sunday, when at least for half a day they were able to congregate in Congo Square.

  • The Rough Riders Cowboys’ Reunion program has sparked a lot of interest with my family and friends who come to visit here at the ranch. My last column was about the rodeo events and a description of the colorful brochure sent to me by long- time friends who now live in the Dallas area. I am so glad this place of our Las Vegas history wasn’t thrown away long ago. It is the August 1954 program and two pages contain a listing of contributors who made this big event possible.
