  • Mil Gracias

    I would like to give kudos to two families who are incredibly warm and loving: the Rivera’s from El Sombrero and the Martinez family from Hatcha’s. I just truly appreciate both of these families who simply “love to feed people.”

    El Sombrero has fed hundreds of people at Thanksgiving for close to 15 years. Hatcha’s recently lost their livelihood when their restaurant burned down in Mora. In both places the food is/was prepared with love and you always feel welcomed.

    Could you imagine a world filled with these labors of love?

  • Mil Gracias

    On behalf of the Las Vegas/San Miguel Chamber of Commerce, its Board of Directors and the Electric Light Parade Committee we would like to extend a sincere “thank you” to our participants for taking time to prepare and present the many beautiful floats in the 21st Annual Electric Light Parade. We have received many compliments due to your efforts.

    The Las Vegas 49ers YAFL team and the parents would like to thank the following individuals and businesses for contributing to our fundraiser for our team expenses to enable us to compete in the Meadow City Football Classic.

  • Pleasant and professional

    Hate to see David Giuliani leave. I wish you many blessings and good luck in your future. I know that you will do well, as you always have.

    Most of all I want to thank you for always being there when we needed to communicate with the public on behalf of the VFW Ladies Auxiliary of Mora. I hope your successor will be just as pleasant and professional.

    I thank you also for the information given to the public on behalf of St. Gertrude’s Church functions in Mora.

    Hasta luego y vaya Con Dios.

  • Good news from Alta Vista

    I happened to be a patient all last week at Alta Vista Regional Hospital. On Friday evening, a very nice woman came into my room and introduced herself as Maridel Acosta, the new CEO at the hospital.

    She spent more than an hour talking with me about everything from the history of Las Vegas to Puerto Rican food to her great willingness to join this community to encourage Compassion (with a capital C) in our healthcare facilities here.

  • ‘Demons’ still not brought to justice

    It has been three years that our children Damian and Stephanie were brutally taken from us.This is the most horrific act of evil that could happen to anyone! Damian and Steph, were wonderful kids inside and out, with big hearts, souls, big goals and a very bright future. Our children, full of life! How could this insane act of evil have happened?

    These demons have not been brought to justice yet and we the families are begging for anyone that has any information. Please come forward and help put them away and keep this from happening again.

  • Politics: You get what you pay for

    The mid-term “revulsion election” has come and gone, exacting widespread retribution on both the innocent and the impure.    

  • Don’t judge Cordova harshly

    Mora County will soon have a new sheriff and I’m sure he will do good. He was a deputy when I was on the commission.

    The outgoing sheriff, it seems, has made some mistakes, as we all have, because we are human. The only perfect ones are six feet under because, of course, they can’t make mistakes anymore.

  • Breakdown turned out OK

    This is our “on-the-road-again” story thanks to an automotive mechanic from Las Vegas, N.M.:

    Our 187,500 mileage Chrysler 1994 van has been a long-time family member since we purchased it 16 years ago, and this past November, it joined us on our weeklong car camping trip in northeastern New Mexico. Unfortunately on Sunday (the last day of our vacation), while traveling back to Denver we started having intermittent hesitation problems requiring us to be towed back to Santa Fe for a fuel filter replacement.

  • Educators must have adequate tools

    I graduated from Robertson in 1967 at the same time Don Pace did.

    Great to see that a fellow classmate became a reporter for the Optic.

    I read the article that pertained to the Las Vegas Public Schools regarding new adoptions and the lack of follow-through from district management in making sure all teachers and students had access to the curriculum at the beginning of the new school year.
