    City’s priorities
    are skewed

    There is no other town that comes together after a tragedy better than the Las Vegas community, especially when it comes to our children. This time, however, the city of Las Vegas has chosen to be part of the problem instead of the solution.

    Headline about kid was offensive
    In response to the Monday October 6th headline article “You think your kid is bad?”:

    We are a nation of immigrants
    Recently, I received from a friend in Iowa several forwarded emails regarding immigration. Usually she sends interesting humor or musical pieces.

    Farmers Market working hard
    Mr. Rock Ulibarri is known for his just and fair ways in our community. I’m disappointed that he relied on misinformation about the Tri-County Farmers Market in his recent letter (Sept. 19). I’m a former board member of the Tri-County Farmers Market as well as a vender and a customer. I hope I can clarify the issues that Mr. Ulibarri brought forth in his letter.

    Will you hear a lot of emotion in this letter? Yes. Will you hear a lot of truth in this letter? Absolutely.

    Ridiculous excuse
    I had to chuckle and read the article twice about the West Las Vegas homecoming activities being changed and one board member insinuating that it had anything to do with Title IX.
