  • Thumbs - Our high country lowdown on the news - May 4, 2012

    THUMBS DOWN! DWI IN THE MORNING. State police responded to a crash scene a week ago Friday after a suspected drunken driver crashed into a telephone pole on Mountain View Drive, started to flee and crashed into a car at Seventh Street and Mountain View. Keith T. Gutierrez, 28, of Las Vegas, then ran from his vehicle to the nearby Allsup’s, where he climbed into someone’s vehicle and told the driver to get him out of there, according to the probable cause statement. But it didn’t work.

  • Concerns about article, filing

    This letter is in reference to Thomas Cole’s article printed in the Albuquerque Journal North and reprinted in the Las Vegas Optic’s April 20 edition. I would like to clarify that the Roberta Vigil mentioned in the article as the treasurer of candidate Viola Vigil’s Election Committee is not the Roberta Vigil that is married to Rep. Richard Vigil.

  • Chained dog, sitting duck

    I saw a pack of very muscular pit bulls run down the street recently. They weaved in and out of each yard as they headed  toward Walmart. I called animal control. The message said to call the police, who said they would check on it.

    I know I’m taking up more than my share of space now but I just wonder, what chance a chained dog would have against that pack of pit bulls? A chained dog would instantly morph into a sitting duck, would it not?

  • Tethering can be more humane

    When the wealthier are robbed they submit their claim to their insurance and get all the money back for their items that were stolen. When the poor are robbed they suffer greatly, not being able to replace anything.

  • Postal Service reliable, efficient

    The U.S. Postal Service, or USPS, has provided reliable and efficient service since 1775. I can attest to the past seven decades.

    Congress and Senate are addressing the most recent proposal to “shut down” services and contract out delivery routes.

    House bills HR1351 and House Resolution 137 are to be acted upon and the U.S. Senate is also deliberating on the same issue.

    It is critical that the Postal Service continue to provide six-day service.
