    Many helped with cemetery restoration

    Many I read the article about Carol Wawrychuck and her journey to “bring dignity” to the cemeteries at the Behavioral Health Institute and it is indeed gratifying that information about these cemeteries is now being read by folks in this community. I appreciate this — but I would very much like to acknowledge the diverse groups of individuals who worked diligently for three years prior to Mrs. Wawrychuk’s visit to the hospital in 2005 ....

  • Just a Thought - An instruction manual on living a long life

    Today I want to talk about something that you have only one of... your life. Since none of us were born with instruction manuals, how do we maximize the longevity of our lives? And how do we maximize the quality of the years we have?

    We were not impressed, to say the least, but both of us learned to respect this training, particularly when we became parents.

    The city of Las Vegas made history Monday evening with a City Council vote to purchase 2,300 acre-feet of permanent water storage in Storrie Lake, a move that will more than quadruple the city’s current storage capacity and bring an end to the ongoing litigation between the city and the Storrie Project Water Users Association.
