Today's Features

  • People on the street are hurrying by, collars turned up against the chilly February wind.  But you’re basking in the sun in shorts and a tank top, the air freshened by green foliage.   How can this be?  Think greenhouse.  Think sunroom.  Think passive solar.

  • Does your life sometimes feel like it’s on repeat every day? For a long while my life felt like that. Every single day almost seemed the same. At the same time every day I would wake up and get ready for school, I would leave for school at the same time, the lectures at school all sounded the same. (It kind of sounded like the teacher from Charlie Brown....Blah Blah Blah Blah.) After school I’d come to work. Every single day was basically the same schedule, and I never really noticed any of this up until recently.

  • From the many Good Samaritans in Las Vegas six nominees have been chosen for a Good Samaritan Award. This honor will be presented at the United World College’s Benefit to be held on Thursday, Jan. 29 at the UWC Montezuma Castle Cafeteria.

    United World College students are sponsoring this fund-raiser with international foods, special activities and international musical performances in support of Samaritan House and the Cold Weather Shelter.  

  • So who has bragging rights that they are the First Ever New Mexico Hispano Music Associations    “ Youth Group of the Year?” Mariachi Pantera de Pecos Schools. The seven members of Mariachi Pantera competed on Nov. 29, 2008, at the Ohkay Convention Center for the NMHMA Children and Youth Competition. The students performed the song Cariño in front of an audience of almost 400 people, and were judged on performance, technique, and appearance. They competed against two other groups, Mariachi Sol de Valle, and a Mariachi Group from Questa.

  • ‘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.
