  • Toward a just and peaceful world

    A dove and the word peace were featured in full color on the cover of our church program on a recent Sunday. It was the time of year when we celebrate the birth of Jesus, the Prince of Peace. We remember that he said, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God.”

  • Wanting stories about son Tony

    I would like to thank the citizens of Las Vegas for their calls and prayers during the passing of my son, Tony Marquez Jr. My son was very special to  a lot of people. I called him my “Golden Boy.” He was a good person taken too soon.

    A few people from Las Vegas have shared their stories of kindness that Tony showed to them. I am compiling these stories to put into a book to be given to Tony’s children. I am asking Las Vegas citizens to please send me stories about my son to the address below.

    Thank you and God bless you.

  • Fires fought by many brave souls

    Fire has a way of casting a light on the true nature of people.  Over the past week, those of us in the Sapello-Rociada Volunteer Fire Department’s district saw the courage and caring of many people, not only in our district but throughout San Miguel and Mora counties. Two separate fires, the La Canada wildland fire and the Apodaca residence fire, were beyond the capacity of our fire department.  What’s more, high winds destroyed our radio repeater not once but twice — both times almost simultaneously with the threat of fire.

    I would like to thank the person(s) responsible for the return of my grandmothers lost purse at Walmart on Nov. 23. We are very grateful for the honesty.

    I am a firm believer in karma and I hope you are returned the good deed in the future.
    Again, thank you.

  • GOP doesn’t care about ‘fair share’

    Somebody should explain to the Republicans that “multimillion” and “billion” are not what is meant by small business. Republicans would cut wasteful spending. Let’s stop supporting our communities, educating our children. Let’s stop feeding the hungry. Too many of us are not millionaires. It seems absurd to subsidize the rich. Let us not dish out any money to people who receive Social Security.

    On Nov. 30, we had the misfortune to have had our mobile home destroyed by fire. We are extremely grateful to God for our safety and the many wonderful blessings he has given us. He brought us many angels to help us overcome this devastating trial in our lives.

    On Sunday Dec. 2, Casa de Cultura, Highlands University and East Las Vegas School put on the third annual Mariachi Christmas Concert at Ilfeld Auditorium.

    Las gracias a la gente de Las Vegas, the parents, families and friends — all 700 plus of you in attendance — for supporting the Mariachi program and children.

    Mil gracias to Maestro Martin Sena, for his ability to teach 150 young people some valuable cultural skills. Maestros Wally Sanchez and Gary Sena are also an integral part of the teaching team.

    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?
