  • Work of Art — AP Stylebook OKs ‘hopefully’

    No, this is not a repeated column. It’s not a summer (or early fall) rerun; however, you might recall I’ve asked the question before and touched on the subject: When we suddenly become aware of word or combination of words, is its usage new, or did we just now become aware of it?

    During political seasons, we overdose on “convoluted,” usually in the context of “The provisions of Obamacare are too frigging convoluted.” They mean, I surmise, “confusing,” but the meaning of convoluted comes closer to intricate, repetitious.

  • Support non-profits

    One of the great things about Las Vegas is the many organizations here that work hard to provide opportunities to area residents and to make our community a better place to live.

    Among those organizations are the First Presbyterian Church Mustard Seed program, Habitat for Humanity and the New Mexico Highlands University Foundation. Each of these groups is currently raising money to further its mission, and each one is worthy of your support.

  • Another Perspective — Affordable health care for all

    If you have ever felt healthcare was beyond your reach, now is your time.

    If it was too expensive or if you had a medical problem that prevented you from getting insurance, now is your time.

    If you lived in fear of losing all you have because of huge medical bills you couldn’t afford, now is your time.

    Because starting now, New Mexicans have the chance to sign up for health-care through the new Health Insurance Exchange.

    What does this mean for you?

    THUMBS DOWN! CAN’T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG?
    It’s unfortunate that 800,000 federal employes, including several who reside in this area, are on furlough just because our elected officials can’t get their act together and pass a budget. This is a potential disaster for the economy and an outrageous example of the gridlock that pervades Washington, D.C. these days.

  • Nuestra Historia: East & West named Consolidation Commission

    After the dust settled, following defeat of the Legislative proposal to require a referendum on the merger of East and West Las Vegas, the two municipalities did something that would result in a serious study of consolidation, and its eventual approval by the people.

  • Have compassion for animals

    No doubt, I am not the only person pleased to have the Animal Welfare Coalition take over the responsibility of the city’s animal shelter.

    While the city is still taking care of the utilities, the organization needs whatever help the community can offer. They can use dog/cat food, blankets, old towels and pet carriers, as well as volunteers to help with socializing the animals. Of course they can certainly use monetary donations, but if that isn’t possible the other items mentioned can bring much- needed help.
