Today's Opinions

  • Speaking of natural resources

    In reference to the Optic article on Feb. 15, “Drilling advocates take aim,” Rep. Donald Bratton, R-Hobbs, stated that revenues are available to communities across the state because not all of them were blessed with natural resources. He added that it’s troubling when there’s movement in some areas to stop drilling.

  • In support of Montoya

    (An open letter to Abelino Montoya): It is with great pleasure that I write this letter in full support of your re-election to the Luna Community College Board of Trustees. I know that you have a deep passion for education because of your involvement in the community and service on the LCC Board of Trustees for the past 12 years.

  • Mil Gracias - March 1, 2013

    Thank you to Linda Leyba, Deb Green, CNO, both of Alta Vista Regional Hospital, Highlands University and the Las Vegas Community for making me feel welcome at the Healthy Woman Anniversary Celebration on Feb. 21. As a traveling speaker across the U.S., I have the privilege of visiting many cities, and the friendliness of Las Vegas was very much appreciated!
    Your resources in Alta Vista Regional Hospital and Highlands are impressive, as is your historical setting.   

  • Tibor would be proud

    Las Vegas is rich in history. Multiple histories, as a matter of fact. This is big country, with a great and diverse heritage that is worthy of protecting and preserving.

    The Las Vegas Museum plays a critical role in doing just that. It helps us keep and appreciate our heritage. And that’s why the latest success of the Friends of the City of Las Vegas Museum and Rough Rider Memorial Collection is so important.

  • Work of Art - ‘Everyone on your list’

    “If you’re against child abuse, forward this message to everyone on your email list.”

    All right. Done!

    Actually not. I needed to think about the message, which appeared on my Facebook page, and presumably on the page of all my Facebook “friends.”

  • Posturing for power

    What’s behind the latest feud among Luna Community College board members? More than meets the surface.
