Today's Features

  • The Crochet Ole members of the Mora Senior Citizens Center  recently traveled to Vida Encantada in Las Vegas to visit the clients and staff.


    As they visited with the clients, they lovingly placed prayer shawls on their shoulders and gave them a hug and showed love and concern to the grateful folks. As they visited, they read the prayer attached to the shawls for each person.

  • Sure enough, bring a bunch of my age group together and the talk gets around to healthcare. One of my farfetched theories is that one just feels better when one talks about it.


    Doc Gellenthien, my country doctor father, always had “the cure” for whatever came along, stashed away somewhere. Not all of these cures came out of a medicine bottle. In fact, many of them were a part of our everyday life. I assisted him a time or two when we had medical emergencies with our animals.

  • West Las Vegas High School principal Gene Parson said three years ago, a new teacher named Jose Muñoz “came to us.”


    Parson said from the get-go, Muñoz showed a lot of maturity and a lot of drive. To go from a college graduate to a high school band director is something you don’t see often, and a reflection of his skills.”

  • Miss Ramah Navajo Queen Vanessa Frank has reached out to youth, helped elders and ridden in many parades representing her Native American community of Pine Hill, N.M.


    “My platform was to reach out and tell kids that education is the key to life. There’s no such thing as can’t — everything is possible if you’re determined to do it, and you don’t give up,” Frank said. 

         
    Frank said she loves her grandfather Albert Joe Frank, a medicine man at Pine Hill Reservation.

  • Will Rogers said long ago that even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there. How right he was, and as I review the past month, there is no way I or anyone could just sit there because there has been so much to do in our big area. Yes, it is time to say thank you in so many ways for all of the nonprofits, the community organizations that work tirelessly year-round helping out so many in so many ways.
