Today's Opinions

  • Nuestra Historia - West system rooted in early Catholic schools

    For more than 30 years after Las Vegas was founded in 1835, there was no organized educational instruction available in the fledgling settlement. As was customary in New Mexico at the time, local clergy, if any, provided the little formal education available, though wealthy families often retained live-in tutors.

  • Another Perspective - Medicare’s open enrollment

    By Bob Moos

    Now’s the time for New Mexico residents with Medicare to check their health and drug coverage for 2013.
    Medicare’s open enrollment period runs from this coming Monday, Oct. 15, until Dec. 7.
    Open enrollment is the best time to make sure your health and drug plans still meet your individual needs, especially if you’ve had any changes in your health.

    On my Facebook page there’s a photo album which I call “Desperately Seeking a Caption.” I often put a humorous photo on display and invite Facebook friends to come up with a caption as inane as the photo.

    This time I posted a photo I took on our last visit to our family in Copenhagen, Denmark. Surprisingly, a half dozen people jumped in.

    I took the picture in the kitchen. The subject is an odd electrical object which combines two handy appliances.

  • ‘Moving forward’ for whom?

    First let me congratulate Mayor Alfonso Ortiz and councilors Joey Herrera and Vince Howell. These three elected officials are truly by and for the people. Las Vegas is finally in tune with the rest of the country that is moving forward and no matter what we the citizens have to say.

  • Troubled tenure

    Thomas Garcia’s resignation as superintendent of the Mora Independent School District is, to say the least, timely.
