  • We must care for the elderly

    Community newspapers get to know about the elderly in all sorts of ways.

    We hear stories about a favorite grandparent. We have older people come into the office and relating a revealing story. We run obituaries about those who’ve recently passed away after living a long life.

    We learn a great deal about the caring people in someone’s life when we see how those persons were living at the end of their time on earth. Frankly, the impressions are discouraging.

  • Please come on out to see ‘Cabaret’

    By Beth Urech

    "When is your next concert?” is the question Ronald Maltais is asked frequently as he strolls up Bridge Street or around the Plaza.

    That’s not surprising because Ron has brought many interesting music and dance events to Las Vegas recently.

    Contact your legislators and urge them to support Senate Bill 51 and House Bill 64 that will provide desperately needed free/low cost spays  and neuters to the pets of NM families.

    Over half of the pets in shelters must be killed every year because there are not enough homes.

    The procedures decrease the pet overpopulation and the resulting euthanasia. Contact media@apvnm.com for more information.

    THUMBS DOWN: FACEBOOK IS NOT ENOUGH
    The City of Las Vegas’ informing of the public regarding a murder that took place Saturday seems as if it could have been done with a greater sense of urgency. The only means the city used to get the word out about a wanted fugitive — considered armed and dangerous, and charged with second-degree murder — was through a “be-on-the-lookout” Facebook post on the Las Vegas Police Department’s page.
