  • Don't miss out on being a 'Big'

    Have you ever wondered how many opportunities you’ve missed in your life? Helping a young person with his homework? Taking him to get ice cream at Dairy Queen? Going to his Little League game or being a third-base coach? Maybe attending his spring concert or just sitting down with him to talk when he asks “Whatcha doing?”

  • The Las Vegas dilemma

    So what is it about Las Vegas past, present and future that troubles some folks so? Is it that many folks have tried to bring growth, opportunity and jobs that run against the grain of the zero-growth thinkers? Las Vegas has long appeared as the big rock in the economic stream that waters reluctantly flow around opting instead for Espaola, Taos, Santa Fe or Albuquerque.

  • Remembering Marilynn

    Bob and I met Marilynn Ernest at a Las Vegas meeting of the Peace and Justice committee while we were still living in Mosquero, 94 miles away. She was there every Tuesday evening and, unlike most of those attending, she walked. She would get a ride home because she preferred not to walk home after dark.

  • Mil Gracias

    Luna Community College would like to show its gratitude for the fourth annual Custom Car Show & Shine that we co-sponsored.

  • Don't forget the victim

    There’s been several write-ups in the Optic in recent months about a young man, Karl Chamberlain, who was recently executed in Texas.

    Most of what has been written, has been in my view, to evoke sympathy for Chamberlain. Comparatively little has been written about the crime, the victim, or her family. It almost seems they have been forgotten.

  • Democrats sell out in Congress

    June 20 was a sad day for Democrats and liberals around the country — proof that Democratic control of the House and Senate means absolutely nothing. This was the day that the House approved passage of the amended FISA bill — the bill that virtually assures immunity to law-breaking telecommunications companies and grants the government new powers to spy upon its citizens.

  • Not winning election has its own merits

    The primary election is over and the people have spoken. I know that when you spend time and money on campaigning and then lose the election, it’s very discouraging. But in an election there really are no losers, because when you throw your hat in the ring you are really telling your community that you feel you can make a difference.

  • A friendly appeal

    This letter is in reference to our neighborhood in the Blue Ridge sub-division. It concerns the litter problem that we are facing, and I am afraid that it will get worse before it gets better if we don’t take charge of it and soon.

    We all know that dumps create gases, rats and mice that are and can be deadly, and can produce a wave of illnesses. I am most concerned about the children who will inherit all of it in the years to come.
