  • 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.

  • 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.
