  • They’re really self servants

    Who is to blame for our country’s problems? Big business? The government? In his Editor’s Note “The blame game” (Nov. 14), Tom McDonald induced a great discussion and a lot of thinking at my house.

    We had just watched a thought provoking Piece by Steve Kroft on 60 Minutes the night before. They wondered why senators and congressman spent millions on getting a job that only pays $174,000 per year and after a few years retire as millionaires well exceeding the money paid to them during their term. When you think about it, it just doesn’t add up.

  • Crossroads to the future

    A statement to the San Miguel County Oil and Gas Task Force read on Nov. 15, 2011:

  • Terr’s column a good reminder

    The article by Jim Terr expressing his pleasure in re-discovering his hometown of Las Vegas was a joy to read, but he left out the mention of one of the treasures that is unique to Las Vegas. Tome on the Range is a special place that is so much more than a bookstore, involved in the community, with activities for all ages and an owner and staff who contribute so much every day to us.  

    Thank you, Jim Terr, for reminding us of what Las Vegas offers us who live here.

  • Mil Gracias

    We, the parents, family members and friends of our beloved hero, Jesus “Jesse” Griego, would like to thank all who were involved in renaming the Valley Middle School gym “The Jesus ‘Jesse’ Griego Middle School Gym.”

  • Las Vegas has even more to offer

    The article by Jim Terr expressing his pleasure in rediscovering his hometown of Las Vegas was a joy to read, but he left out the mention of one of the treasures that is unique to Las Vegas.  

    Tome on the Range is a special place that is so much more than a bookstore, involved in the community, with activities for all ages and an owner and staff who contribute so much every day to us.

  • Memory unit much needed

    We would like to express our sincere appreciation to Vida Encantada Rehabilitation and Nursing Center and their excellent staff for opening the Memory Care Unit this fall.

    This was a much needed addition for persons living with Alzheimer’s Disease and other memory disorders in our community. The benefit has been immediate and very positive.

  • Beautiful outcome, one and united

    This letter is written to the East/West Las Vegas school boards of education and to Gloria Lovato-Pacheco and Gary Gold. I wish to send “kudos” to both for coming up with consolidation for both school systems. “Bravo” to all of you who are seeking the coming together of our community for the good of all of our young people. This should have happened a long time ago.

  • Conflicts and complicity

    Letter from a lowly taxpayer who still hasn’t received his trash roll-away: Let’s see, Campos imposes Dodge on our little city.  Campos is monetarily involved with at least two hires of our city fathers (sic). Luna has a conflict with Luna’s utilities bill with the city. Campos’ Dodge gets rave reviews from at least two city councilors, even after the deaths of two city employees.

    Does anyone else here smell conflict of interest or complicity of any kind?
