    Sierra Vista Elementary School fourth-grader Edwardo Gallegos stood before the Las Vegas Schools board last week expressing his concern and possible remedies to curb bullying at his school.

     

    “We are having some serious problems at my school. We have a lot of students who like to bully other students, and don’t respect others,” Gallegos told the board.

  • Doug Hughes is a medical doctor; Aileen Torres Hughes, a nurse. It sounds like the perfect combination, and perhaps it is, for singly and together, this couple has helped provide medical assistance for locals and for thousands of people in impoverished areas of the world.


    Theirs is not a hemmed-in or office occupation or preoccupation.


    The active lives of this medical couple reflect an incarnation of the term teleology — being directed toward an end or shaped by a purpose.
