Letters

  • Read and follow school policy

    Why is Principal (Steve) Sandoval being made the  scapegoat for doing a job that he has been hired to do? Most people agree discipline should start at home; unfortunately these days there are  individuals being sent into our public schools who lack the discipline and are interfering on the rights of our children who go to school to get an education in a safe and drug free environment.  

  • Standing up for a good principal

    Regarding the alleged bullying incidents occurring at West Las Vegas Middle School, I have had many encounters with Mr. Steve Sandoval over the years as a friend, as a parent of a West Las Vegas Middle School student, and as a member of our educational community. Mr. Sandoval has always treated me, and those that I have observed him with, with kindness and fairness.

  • Time to put an end to dog tethering

    It’s the 21st century, and as a nation we have stopped doing many things that were considered OK in days gone by. We no longer force small children to work in sweat shops, or forbid women to vote, or make African Americans sit in the back of the bus.

    It’s the 21st century, and it’s time for Las Vegas to join the rest of America in doing away with the cruel practice of tethering dogs.

  • Husband’s firing was unjustified

    I wanted to write this letter of utter disbelief to inform the community of a  horrible injustice happening in Las Vegas.

    Many of you know my husband “Officer Cruz.” He’s been a police officer for over 20 years. Recently, he was working at the New Mexico Highlands University Police Department under Chief Donato Sena.

  • Abuse occurring in public housing

    I live in Las Vegas public housing. I have lived here most of my life. It is mostly what I know I am also thankful and appreciative for.

    I am writing this letter to let the Las Vegas City Council know exactly what is going on here.

    The abuse that I have been documenting since 2005 that has been going on here for years is inhumane.

  • Can we trust the school system?

    On the 22 day of February my son who attends West Las Vegas Middle School was (allegedly) assaulted by an assistant football coach. On April 9 there was an article in the paper that another child was (allegedly) being harassed by the principal Steve Sandoval. What is going on with the “so-called leaders” of our school?  

  • Thoughts on anti-tethering law

    Dogs housed in fenced yards can pose public heath risks, so before mandating the “anti-tethering law” please consider the following.

    1. A chain link fence will not prevent a curious child/person from sticking their hands through the fence and possibly being bitten. Then the dog owner would more than likely be sued.

  • Supports the new ordinance

    I support the anti-tethering legislation. I  moved to Las Vegas seven years ago for school, and have since then made this  town my home. I bought a house, I work here, I vote here, and I do my part of  community service.

    I also have a dog and it breaks my heart to see other  people’s dogs tied up constantly with no stimulation, attention, or companionship. I’m so proud of my town for passing this law.

  • ‘A crime against our pets’

    About two weeks ago, I had an emergency situation, with one of my pets, at home, at approximately 11:30 p.m. In my panic, while trying to tend to my pet, I called all three of our local vets, all three of which had their cell phone numbers on messages for “after-hour emergencies.” I called all three cell phones to no avail. I was told by the answering service of one vet, to take my pet to Santa Fe to the emergency pet hospital.  That would have been a great  idea, if I didn’t live nearly an hour away.

  • Directory helps kids get support

    Happy Administrative Professionals Day! To celebrate the day this April 25, the New Mexico New Hires Directory would like to thank payroll professionals for their critical role in making sure that children receive the financial support they deserve.
