    The Las Vegas Arts Council thanks the attendees, vendors, and entertainers who made the 33rd annual People’s Faire such a great success.

    Las Vegas Arts Council’s mission is to promote, encourage, advise, and coordinate the cultural arts in Las Vegas and surrounding communities. We believe that People’s Faire provides a wonderful opportunity for local artists, artisans, and performers and provides a great place to enjoy the cultural arts that our community offers.

  • Let’s get this story straight

    Reading and seeing your article on Monday, Aug. 8, brought a smile to my face — to see a couple of state champs from the West side.

    I, as well, am a state champion from West Las Vegas, Class of 1978, who got the winning hit to bring the State Title to WLV.

    I had no idea that we had back-to-back titles. I praise the class of 1979, if that ever happened. Maybe your reporter was just reporting not investigating.

    The Las Vegas City Schools Elementary Administrative Team would like to thank the custodial and maintenance staff for their hard work and positive attitudes over the past month. These crews have worked diligently to accomplish all that we have asked of them. Their dedication to making our schools and grounds look exemplary is much appreciated.  

    Extra special thanks to Raymond Baca from the Mike Mateo Sena Elementary staff.

  • Water: KISS, and just do it

    That headline is what I wanted to say after a recent “Over the Back Fence.” The mayor requires Sen. Pete Campos’ help now; we all require some truth without the frosting and no more talk.

  • Scammed by politics

    The Victorian Triangle, taxpayer funded, Grand Avenue “beautification,” the “sewer line to nowhere” at Cinder Road (two casualties, plus family victims), Seventh Street paving, “welcome gate,” etc.: These are political ponzi schemes and/or pyramid scams, i.e., the rest of the community taxpayers can only press their nose up against the window pane, while The “Victorian Triangle” enjoys their largesse.

  • Tired of fees, city’s antics

    I have not written to you in a long while but I’ve been reading about what is going on Las Vegas. Our city officials are out of hand. I am not saying that it is all, but a few. I will say that the current Mayor Ortiz has hurt the people living in Las Vegas the most. He has increased everything he gets a hold of.
    One example is the increase in trash pick up, the city is supposed to pick up our trash once a week but there are times that they do not but we still get charged the same.

    I would like to thank everyone for their prayers, support, and love during my battle with cancer. I was diagnosed with throat cancer back in late October and began undergoing radiation treatment immediately. Unfortunately the cancer came back and now I am undergoing chemotherapy. My insurance has only covered a portion of all my medical costs.

  • No magic to reading

    In your Aug. 1 article titled “The magic of reading” you wrote that you thought you were dyslexic because you read words backwards when you were a kid. If in fact you are dyslexic you compensated well enough to become the editor and publisher of the Optic. A substantial achievement for anyone dyslexic or not. But let me make some clarifications about dyslexia.

  • Equal, with minds of our own

    I read the rebuttal to Tom McDonald’s July 4 editorial. I personally feel that Mr. McDonald runs a good newspaper, and that he is very fair. Mr. McDonald has the same right as all of us to express our freedom of speech. He only writes what is his opinion, and what he thinks.
