Today's Opinions

  • Abuse occurring in public housing

    I live in Las Vegas public housing. I have lived here most of my life. It is mostly what I know I am also thankful and appreciative for.

    I am writing this letter to let the Las Vegas City Council know exactly what is going on here.

    The abuse that I have been documenting since 2005 that has been going on here for years is inhumane.

  • Thumbs - Our high country lowdown on the news - April 20, 2012

    THUMBS UP! IMPRESSIVE TURNOUT. It’s not often that one sees a runoff turn out more voters than the election that created the runoff, but that’s exactly what happened with the Las Vegas runoffs, which concluded earlier this week. The 2,604 votes cast were 65 voters more than turned out for the eight candidates on the March 6 ballot. Likewise, 25 more voters turned out for the runoff than before.

  • Nuestra Historia - Taft made it official: NM statehood!

    It was almost two months before New Mexico determined the election results for its first state officials, as several won by razor-thin margins, and those contests consumed many weeks of legal argument. Finally, on Dec. 30, 1911, the Nov. 7 election was certified to Washington.

  • Can we trust the school system?

    On the 22 day of February my son who attends West Las Vegas Middle School was (allegedly) assaulted by an assistant football coach. On April 9 there was an article in the paper that another child was (allegedly) being harassed by the principal Steve Sandoval. What is going on with the “so-called leaders” of our school?  

  • Thoughts on anti-tethering law

    Dogs housed in fenced yards can pose public heath risks, so before mandating the “anti-tethering law” please consider the following.

    1. A chain link fence will not prevent a curious child/person from sticking their hands through the fence and possibly being bitten. Then the dog owner would more than likely be sued.

  • Supports the new ordinance

    I support the anti-tethering legislation. I  moved to Las Vegas seven years ago for school, and have since then made this  town my home. I bought a house, I work here, I vote here, and I do my part of  community service.

    I also have a dog and it breaks my heart to see other  people’s dogs tied up constantly with no stimulation, attention, or companionship. I’m so proud of my town for passing this law.
