    Doctors, medical services abundant

    I am writing in response to Betty Maestas’ Letter to the Editor posted on April 18 regarding the need for “more doctors and medical services needed.” 

    First and utmost, my condolences to Ms. [Desiree] Castillo’s’ family for their loss. Secondly, Ms. Maestas is mistaken regarding the lack of medical care in Las Vegas.

  • Just a Thought:Spend wisely what’s left in your hourglass

    “Life is what happens when you are busy doing other things.” Words of wisdom from John Lennon. Do you ever wake up and wonder where the time went? If it will be an important question later. Why not make it important today? You will never again be as young as you are at this very moment.

    The St. Joseph (Missouri) News-Press on the fight for a $15 minimum wage (April 16):

    Dream for a moment: You are in a minimum-wage job and someone decides to double your pay to $15 an hour.

    Now, if you previously had qualified yourself for only minimum-wage work, this is a genuine boon to you and your household. No matter what other income is available in the home, if you work 40 hours a week then you can expect a wage of $31,200 a year.

    This works out well for you. But what about everyone else?

  • Palabras Pinturescas: Remembering times with John Moore at Murphy’s

    My word picture column for today has a sad note to begin with. This large area of our beloved state has lost yet another of its many treasures with the passing of John Moore. I can’t remember when I first met him, but I’d have a pocket full of nickels if I had a one for every time he, plus the wonderful staff at Murphy’s Drug Store, on Sixth Street and Douglas in Las Vegas served me a cherry lime or a chocolate soda.
