Today's Features

  • ‘Small communities all over the world have the power to help each other,” said Jomkaun (Lynn) Theprungsirikul from Thailand and a student at United World College. “Hands reaching out, people from many backgrounds, the great variety of people—this will be a really big event,” said Laura Angeline Pastores of the Philippines, another World College student. “The government may not be working hard to help and that’s why we need people to help,” said Elizabeth Villalobos Zamora from Costa Rica.

  • Let me begin with a confession — although I am trying to live green, I still watch TV. Being a contender for “cheapest man alive,” I have abandoned cable and dish, and I now watch TV for free through several internet television sites, most notably Hulu.com and Fancast.com. I get to watch all sorts of great stuff, but that’s not what this column is really about.

  • The Las Vegas City museum is seeking suggestions for improvement, and has created a community blog to encourage community members to offer their recommendations for change.

  • Imagine walking outside your door and seeing nothing but peace. There’s nobody out there cussing and yelling at each other. Nobody is fighting. Imagine having a world with no race. Everybody full of peace, love and no judgment. Sounds all like a dream, right? It really isn’t; it’s within arm’s reach but nobody seems to realize it.

  • Las Vegas is a community with a heart. When an act of arson caused two valued members of the community to suffer a loss, some of the most talented people in the Las Vegas area joined to put together a fundraising benefit.

    A concert suited to every taste will be presented on Sunday, Jan. 25 at 3 p.m. in the Presbyterian Church, 1000 Douglas Ave.

  • Virtuoso song-and-piano team Jane Voss & Hoyle Osborne will present “I Want to Be Bad: The Flapper and Her Song” at the Kluge Auditorium of United World College-USA in Montezuma, New Mexico, on Friday, January 23rd, at 7 p.m. 

    This free concert-lecture is part of the New Mexico Chautauqua and is made possible by the New Mexico Humanities Council and the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs.

  • It’s the windy and freezing cold. It’s the constant drills. It’s the continuous monotony of buildings needing repair and animals needing care and feeding.

    There are perhaps 500 dogs wandering around the fort.  Soldiers number as many as 1,600. With civilians the total human population rises to 3,500. Food is so bad that when the soldier threw his dinner meat to a dog, the dog just turned away and left it. The officers steal from the men and the men steal from each other. 

  • So finally 2009 is here. This has been a year I’ve been anticipating for a really long time. This is the year I finally start my life. Graduation is around the corner and so are all the opportunities that lie ahead.

    I have to say, bringing in the New Year was not so shabby. All my family was together and having a blast. Now I don’t think you could call my aunty’s party a party — a fiesta sounds more like it.

  • Silver/goldsmith Tito Chavez is the featured artist during the January 10th Second Saturday festivities at Tito’s Gallery on Bridge Street in Old Town Las Vegas. He will demonstrate techniques such as fusing, popcorn casting, and water casting of silver at intervals throughout the day between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. The public is welcome and there is no charge.

  • When mothers and daughters start talking about a book they have just read, they connect on new levels even if they see the story differently.  A good example is the classic, “Pride and Prejudice.”

    Daughters may see the story as old fashioned and the older style English language difficult to understand.  Mothers may see the romance with its conflicts and misunderstandings as tender and endearing.
