  • Publisher's Note: Board must prove itself

    When it comes to politics in Las Vegas, the public is always suspicious. A lot of people distrust their elected officials, and they are often justified in their reasons.

    Las Vegas’ history is rife with shady dealmaking,  and often the result has been an accumulation of wealth and power into the hands of a few, while the “rank and file” are left wondering what happened.

  • Too little pride in Las Vegas

    Give me a break! A welcoming gateway arch at University Avenue and Fifth Street? That’s akin to putting a pearl necklace on a pig! It will take a lot more than $100,000 in landscaping, banners and informational signs to mask the unsightly convenience store, used car lot, discount gas station and vacant lot at that intersection!

    Of course the conceptual drawings look beautiful. The architect wouldn’t get paid if they didn’t look good! It’s a far cry from an artist’s rendering to what will probably be built.

  • Thumbs Our high country lowdown on the news

    THUMBS UP! ONWARD AND UPWARD. Another graduation crop is walking away with degrees and diplomas this month, offering the rest of us a reason to hope for a better future in their hands.

    Congratulations to all who went the distance and earned that valuable piece of paper — not such an easy task but well worth the effort.

  • No way to treat visitors with dogs

    We recently had the pleasure of visiting Las Vegas and staying at the Plaza Hotel — a hotel that was listed as dog friendly. It definitely met our expectations and the staff was great.

  • Politics clouding East’s decisions

    When are the good citizens of this great city going to say enough is enough, and take a stand against politics as usual?

    The East Las Vegas School Board just gave us another prime example at its school board meeting.

    The rumor-mill had this decision made three weeks ago, and damn if it wasn’t right. Makes you wonder how often school board members are meeting and discussing these issues outside regular board meetings.

  • Little League is for the children

    I have been a huge fan and supporter of the La Plaza Little League for a long time. On May 19, I attended a game. I choose this game specifically to write about because of the actions of the officials and the parents. The Red Sox were playing the Marlins. I noticed a parent of the Red Sox team using profanity towards the opposing team. I noticed this affecting these kids.

  • Mil Gracias

    Thanks to everyone who made the eighth annual SynergyFest a success. Thanks to the SynergyFest committee members for many months of hard work to line up vendors, presenters and entertainers; to publicize the event; and to coordinate logistics.

    The volunteers from Rio Gallinas School provided fun activities at the Sunshine Kids Village. Thanks also to New Mexico Highlands University Campus Life, Facilities and Campus Security for making the day run smoothly. Without the entertainers, presenters, and vendors, there would not be a SynergyFest.
