    In support of Minner
    I just read the article regarding the accreditation issues facing Highlands University. I just wanted to weigh in on my support for Sam Minner the president of HU.
    The deficiencies noted did not come about over the last year but rather were an accumulation of mismanagement from the top for the last two decades. Unfortunately, all of the deficiencies are now on the plate of President Minner.

    Mil gracias
    I want to thank everyone who participated in our Farmers’ Market annual Harvest Festival Sept 17. It was a great festival because of all who came to buy the fresh produce from our local farmers. Thanks to the city for their support, the vendors, musicians, Steve Leger, volunteers, and especially to the farmers who go above and beyond to bring to the people of Las Vegas and surrounding communities- the excellent food that keeps us healthy.

    Great service at Alta Vista Hospital
    Recently, I spent several days in the Alta Vista hospital due to an illness that required my hospitalization. Generally speaking, no time spent in the hospital is a pleasant experience, but I must say, that the staff was most professional and helpful to me.

    The nursing corps, the food service, and the staff at all levels made my stay as comfortable as could reasonably be expected. I do not want to mention them by name because, if I forget someone, I would not want them to feel slighted in any way.

    Hillary ‘scandals’  overblown
    For over a year we’ve all heard about Hillary Clinton’s “scandals” and past mistakes. The entertainment media, formally called the news media, keeps dragging out these “errors in judgment” as proof she is barely qualified to be president. But what they never disclose is how these problems are the inventions of the opposing party.

    Trump is ‘Alt-Reality
    Lately, I have been seeing blogs that Donald Trump is Alt-Right. He well may be, but mainly he is Alt-Reality.

    Luna student says it’s time for a change
     I am currently attending school at Luna Community College. I am also a veteran. I initially began the process to enroll at Luna in March of 2015.
    I had intended to start classes that summer. Upon arriving on campus, I soon realized that there was no V.A representative. This made it very difficult to apply my benefits from my time in the service to Luna.

    Take animal abuse cases seriously
    Regarding the mistrial in the case of the dog named Hubble, I don’t care who dropped the ball in this animal abuse/neglect case; the fact remains and appears as if our community doesn’t really take such cases seriously. This makes our city look as if we are living in the past when some people used to think an animal was just an animal with no thought of compassion.

    Educator: Throw the book at Trujillo
    After reading all the counts against Charles Trujillo, I hope that every educator is as angry as I am!
    Myself, as well as many of my peer educators, worked our tails off and sacrificed to earn our licenses and certifications! We can feel good about ourselves because we did.
    To hear about all the falsified licenses and certifications really makes me sick!
    I hope they throw the book at him!
