  • Mil Gracias

    On Nov. 30, we had the misfortune to have had our mobile home destroyed by fire. We are extremely grateful to God for our safety and the many wonderful blessings he has given us. He brought us many angels to help us overcome this devastating trial in our lives.

    LET’S HOPE HE’S RIGHT. West Las Vegas Superintendent Ruben Cordova took a popular position recently, saying that he didn’t want to close any of the schools on the west side. Here’s hoping that he can pull it off.

    On Sunday Dec. 2, Casa de Cultura, Highlands University and East Las Vegas School put on the third annual Mariachi Christmas Concert at Ilfeld Auditorium.

    Las gracias a la gente de Las Vegas, the parents, families and friends — all 700 plus of you in attendance — for supporting the Mariachi program and children.

    Mil gracias to Maestro Martin Sena, for his ability to teach 150 young people some valuable cultural skills. Maestros Wally Sanchez and Gary Sena are also an integral part of the teaching team.

    I would like to give kudos to two families who are incredibly warm and loving: the Rivera’s from El Sombrero and the Martinez family from Hatcha’s. I just truly appreciate both of these families who simply “love to feed people.”

    El Sombrero has fed hundreds of people at Thanksgiving for close to 15 years. Hatcha’s recently lost their livelihood when their restaurant burned down in Mora. In both places the food is/was prepared with love and you always feel welcomed.

    Could you imagine a world filled with these labors of love?

    The Las Vegas 49ers YAFL team and the parents would like to thank the following individuals and businesses for contributing to our fundraiser for our team expenses to enable us to compete in the Meadow City Football Classic.

  • Pleasant and professional

    Hate to see David Giuliani leave. I wish you many blessings and good luck in your future. I know that you will do well, as you always have.

    Most of all I want to thank you for always being there when we needed to communicate with the public on behalf of the VFW Ladies Auxiliary of Mora. I hope your successor will be just as pleasant and professional.

    I thank you also for the information given to the public on behalf of St. Gertrude’s Church functions in Mora.

    Hasta luego y vaya Con Dios.

  • Don’t base it on politics

    We don’t care whether the administrator of the state hospital is a Democrat or Republican. Frankly, we don’t want that official to cozy up to any governor or elected official.

    Rather, the administrator should focus on the job at hand.

    Troy Jones, the hospital’s chief for the last two and a half years, hasn’t been a political guy, thankfully. Not long before he took the reins, the administrator’s position was made exempt — in other words, an appointee of the governor.
