  • Peaceful Skies: No position on recall

    Peaceful Skies Coalition was mistakenly identified as supporting the effort to stop the recall of mayor Ortiz in a recent political ad in the Las Vegas Optic.

    THUMBS DOWN! VANDALISM AT RHS
    Whether it was a senior prank that got out of hand or simply some other disgruntled individuals blowing off steam, the vandalism at Robertson High School over the weekend crossed the line. Trashing the school was disrespectful and unlawful, and it was a slap in the face to every person at the school who devotes his or her life to educating students. Those responsible must be caught and punished. And part of that punishment should include being forced to pay for the damage and the cleanup.
