    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.

  • Tired of fees, city’s antics

    I have not written to you in a long while but I’ve been reading about what is going on Las Vegas. Our city officials are out of hand. I am not saying that it is all, but a few. I will say that the current Mayor Ortiz has hurt the people living in Las Vegas the most. He has increased everything he gets a hold of.
    One example is the increase in trash pick up, the city is supposed to pick up our trash once a week but there are times that they do not but we still get charged the same.

    I would like to thank everyone for their prayers, support, and love during my battle with cancer. I was diagnosed with throat cancer back in late October and began undergoing radiation treatment immediately. Unfortunately the cancer came back and now I am undergoing chemotherapy. My insurance has only covered a portion of all my medical costs.
