  • Publisher's Note: The Roosevelt Republicans

    David Cargo, the former Republican governor, was honored last week in the state Roundhouse with the unveiling of a bronze bust in his likeness. The crowd that gathered for the ceremony included Gov. Susana Martinez, out of respect for one of her predecessors, and a host of friends and relatives out of loyalty to this man and the mark he made on New Mexico.

    Interestingly, Cargo observed that there were probably more Democrats in the audience than Republicans, which illustrates a sad reality to politics today.

  • Let’s get this story straight

    Reading and seeing your article on Monday, Aug. 8, brought a smile to my face — to see a couple of state champs from the West side.

    I, as well, am a state champion from West Las Vegas, Class of 1978, who got the winning hit to bring the State Title to WLV.

    I had no idea that we had back-to-back titles. I praise the class of 1979, if that ever happened. Maybe your reporter was just reporting not investigating.

  • Mil Gracias

    The Las Vegas City Schools Elementary Administrative Team would like to thank the custodial and maintenance staff for their hard work and positive attitudes over the past month. These crews have worked diligently to accomplish all that we have asked of them. Their dedication to making our schools and grounds look exemplary is much appreciated.  

    Extra special thanks to Raymond Baca from the Mike Mateo Sena Elementary staff.

  • Thumbs - Our high country lowdown on the news

    THUMBS DOWN! UTILITY RATE INCREASE. One of the few good things about our stagnant national economy is that inflation has been held in check. But in the case of our electric bills, that’s just not going to be the case. Beginning Sunday, PNM is raising its base rate 9.2 percent, after gaining the approval of the state Public Regulation Commission.
    Oh boy, just in time for winter.

  • Water: KISS, and just do it

    That headline is what I wanted to say after a recent “Over the Back Fence.” The mayor requires Sen. Pete Campos’ help now; we all require some truth without the frosting and no more talk.

  • Scammed by politics

    The Victorian Triangle, taxpayer funded, Grand Avenue “beautification,” the “sewer line to nowhere” at Cinder Road (two casualties, plus family victims), Seventh Street paving, “welcome gate,” etc.: These are political ponzi schemes and/or pyramid scams, i.e., the rest of the community taxpayers can only press their nose up against the window pane, while The “Victorian Triangle” enjoys their largesse.
