  • Background about the water rights ordinance

  • Letters supporting tethering ordinance

    I first visited Las Vegas seven years ago and fell in love with this charming community. I bought a home and moved to Las Vegas five years ago. I work in Las Vegas, pay taxes and vote in Las Vegas. I support anti-tethering legislation.

  • No one likely to be ‘self-made’

    Are you a “self-made” man or woman? Should you pay your fair share?

    Thank your lucky stars, your customers, the taxpayers, your family, your parents, your fellow citizens.

    You applied yourself, but were it not for a large supporting cast, you may not have “made it.”

    Please do not go around thinking you did it all by yourself'. We are all in this together.

    I want to personally thank you Las Vegas, N.M., for your support in my own 30-plus years in conducting business in our fair town.

  • Process was usurped

    Marvin Salazar should know how the process works. As a Las Vegas Planning & Zoning commissioner, he should know how to apply for permission to place a manufactured home on property owned by his daughter.

    But he didn’t follow his own site plan. By placing the home within three feet of the property line, he violated the city’s setback and site plan requirements — so the home was illegally placed on the property.

  • Work of Art - Got a Magic Marker?

    Several months back, around the time Highlands University developed its own license plate, I jumped in line for one of the lower numbers.

    Sharon Caballero, in charge of selling the new tags, called me when someone cancelled an order, and I was able to draw HU00011. A second plate, HU00211, which fits my second car, I got directly from the local motor vehicle department, unaware that Highlands had a stash of the lower-numbered plates.

    Not bad! The lower number makes me feel oh so important; the higher number, 211, reminds me I ought to weigh a lot less than that.

  • Limbaugh still made his point

    Concerning a letter to the editor entitled, “Birth control the moral choice,” with the lead sentence, “Rush Limbaugh thinks women who use birth control are sluts”:

    If the writer had listened to Limbaugh’s discussions on the Senate hearing involving a female student’s testimony that government pay for student’s birth control (sometimes a $3,000 cost per year for a student), the writer would know Limbaugh never said birth controllers are sluts, or ever intimated women “go back to the Dark Ages.”

  • A dubious ordinance

    As the Las Vegas City Council moves closer to passing proposed Ordinance 12-06, titled the Las Vegas Community Water Rights and Local Self Government Ordinance, let’s take a closer look at it. In our opinion, it’s a statement more than a law.
