  • It’s not far-fetched to say that Robert “Bob” Johnston exhibits characteristics that fly in the face of some widely held generalizations about cognitive styles.


    By profession, he’s a retired petroleum engineer — the “technical/scientific” type. By avocation and personal vocation, he’s a poet, the “creative” type.

     

  • 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.

    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.”
