  • Mess causing flat tires

    I am writing in regard to the Las Vegas city transfer station and the railroad crossing on Arriba Road, which leads to the city transfer station.

    Ever since the transfer station was built, there has been an ongoing issue with trash being blown everywhere and dropped onto the street and railroad crossing.

  • Self-interest afflicts voting

    If the polls are correct, Americans are on the verge of voting against their own self-interest by electing Tea Party and Republican candidates on Nov. 2. If they do, they will be voting against health care improvements, consumer protection, regulation of Wall Street and much other legislation that Obama and the Democrats have passed in the best interest of all Americans.

  • Good people at Alta Vista

    Having a loved one in Alta Vista Regional Hospital recently, I just want to say I’m happy that Las Vegas has such a beautiful facility, staffed with such caring, loving, conscientious people.
    My experience there has been very positive.

  • An explanation of Arts Council efforts

    In response to a recent letter to the Optic in the Oct. 1 edition: Art organizations and art projects in general have been run aground, unfortunately, in a rather roughshod manner. The Las Vegas Arts Council cannot speak for the artists’ master website or the Artists Directory as they are not our projects. As for the LVAC, in particular, misrepresentations abound.

  • Editorial, coverage appreciated

    Editorial, coverage appreciated

    The Editorial Board nailed it to the wall (in the Oct. 20 editorial)!

    I couldn’t agree more.

    Also, really nice job reporting on the forum last week. So many words, and yet you managed to summarize nicely and even-handedly.

    Thumbs up!

  • Added thoughts on the TV ads

    Regarding your Oct. 20 editorial on the television attack ads, I agree with your observations but must hasten to add another solution to the problem. Stop watching so much television!
    If fewer people watch the ads, the campaigns will quickly learn to spend their money elsewhere.

  • Rescue seemed a miracle to me

    At the risk of sounding like a self-righteous individual, I must say the recent rescue of the 33 miners in Chile, certainly qualifies as a miracle for me.

  • 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.

  • Mil Gracias

    During our recent loss of our beloved Robert “Bobby” Loera, the Loera family would like to thank the following: Bobby’s sisters, Olivia Gutierrez, for her being by Bobby’s bedside every single day since his illness in July until the day of his death, Liz Romero and Terri Fry, for the countless times they came and spent their days and nights with him, Rudy Vissarrigas, Mary Madrid, who stayed countless nights in care of him; and to Bobby’s brothers Gilbert “Charro,”Louie and Greg, who also spent many of their days and countless hours with him.
