Today's Features

  • 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.

  • This is a time of celebration for many of us, though we be of diverse traditions, faiths and beliefs. It is a season of feasting, generosity, hospitality, and camaraderie with, family, friends and neighbors. But what do we celebrate during this season, and what do tour celebrations have in common?

  • Its official, fall semester is over, finals are here, and so is vacation. People did warn me that time was going to go by fast, but I didn’t realize it would go by this fast!

    Once winter break starts everything seems to end  fast, as well. Christmas comes and goes, New Year’s Eve comes and then it finally turns to the New Year. This has to be the fastest year I’ve ever lived.
