  • Mil Gracias

    On behalf of Councilman David Romero and family, we would like to take the time to express our genuine appreciation to all family, friends and citizens of Las Vegas for all the wonderful thoughts and prayers and donations that everyone has given our family during this time.

  • Vote against higher taxes

    Election day is just around the corner and early voting has already started. I think back to when I was 10 years old and the local politicians would show up at great-grandmother’s house with sacks of flour and sugar. They claimed the state candidates would give them money to get people to the polls, and sugar and flour in those days were good incentives. However, once the people got to the polls, only the people themselves know which way they voted.

  • Your money is safe at community banks

    Recent headlines would lead you to believe that money for mortgages has dried up. The truth is community banks have money to lend to homeowners for new purchases and to refinance existing mortgages. We offer the same mortgages we always have. Community banks are weathering the credit storm because we are well run, highly capitalized and among the most highly regulated financial institutions in the country. Our depositors’ money is safe with us.

  • Thanks for rapid, thorough response

    I wanted to say a big thank you to the police department and Walgreens for their quick, efficient and professional assistance in handling a situation that I was recently involved in.

    A few days ago, while shopping in Walgreens, I foolishly left my wallet momentarily on the cash register counter. When I looked back, it was mysteriously gone! The store clerk called the manager, who quickly reviewed the video recording and informally described the person who had picked up the wallet and had walked out of the store while I was fussing with my bags.

  • Pets also at risk when roaming

    Persons who allow their dogs to roam are not only putting their “pet” at risk but also those livestock who are vulnerable to attack from dogs unfamiliar with those animals we raise for food, hopefully profit, and pleasure. I have suffered innumerable losses over the years from neighbors dogs, strays and packs of dogs from town. My neighbors didn’t even have the courtesy to apologize much less offer to pay for my losses.

  • Killer dogs a serious threat

    Regarding alleged animal cruelty in chicken killing case (Aug. 13): Dog owners endanger their pets by loosing them near vulnerable livestock. Tempting the dogs to kill is cruel to both the dogs and their victims.

    Given sufficient size and opportunity, the sweetest pet may become a killer. The instinct to kill varies among and within breeds.

    When predators begin killing livestock, the options are limited. Shooting is safer and surer than poisoning or trapping.

  • Jazzmine, Raven good columnists

    I would like to compliment your newspaper for the columns written by Raven Romero and Jazzmine Freedom. These columns were well written, timely, and entertaining.

    I hope that your newspaper finds interns who will be able to follow in the footsteps of these two young ladies.

  • Dogs dumped off on highway

    My husband and I witnessed a despicable act by some people on July 24 while traveling from Mora to Las Vegas on Highway 518. Two dogs were released by these individuals on the highway without regard to the safety of the animals.
