  • Tibor would be proud

    Las Vegas is rich in history. Multiple histories, as a matter of fact. This is big country, with a great and diverse heritage that is worthy of protecting and preserving.

    The Las Vegas Museum plays a critical role in doing just that. It helps us keep and appreciate our heritage. And that’s why the latest success of the Friends of the City of Las Vegas Museum and Rough Rider Memorial Collection is so important.

  • Work of Art - ‘Everyone on your list’

    “If you’re against child abuse, forward this message to everyone on your email list.”

    All right. Done!

    Actually not. I needed to think about the message, which appeared on my Facebook page, and presumably on the page of all my Facebook “friends.”

  • Posturing for power

    What’s behind the latest feud among Luna Community College board members? More than meets the surface.

  • Editor's Note - Name dropping, Part 1

    One of the responsibilities I’ll miss most upon leaving the Optic is handling the letters to the editor. I’ve been doing it since I arrived here in October 2004.

    All that’s going to change soon, as I move on to new adventures and Martín Salazar starts doing double-duty as both interim general manager and managing editor.

  • Students valuable to our community

    Speaking of “tenants,” (a misspelling of “tenets” in Tom McDonald’s Editor’s Note, Feb. 18), I want to give a big and personal shout-out to my tenants: the students of Highlands University and Luna Community College, who bring all sorts of resources to our community, from gracing us with their personal intelligence and energy, to paying the high city utility deposits, and bringing additional revenues to our humble little town.

  • ‘Ran the Optic as it should be run’

    I want to thank Mr. Tom McDonald for all he has done to make sure the local news that is published in the Optic was there to benefit the community and local area. It is important to make sure the local media is truthful in its reporting, no matter who is affected. Mr. McDonald ran the Optic as it should be run. No bias and only positive criticism when needed.

    I thank you for your honesty and not backing down to the local political power brokers. I wish you the best in your next endeavor.
