  • Good experience at Alta Vista

    As long as we are alive and kicking, one never knows when we might need hospital services.

    My recent experience with the surgical department at Alta Vista Regional Hospital was a pleasant one. The staff was very professional and courteous. The entire process was orderly and served to calm my anxiety. Thank you surgeon and staff,  keep up the good work.

  • Thumbs - Our high country lowdown on the news

    THUMBS UP! ACCREDITATION. For the first time in the city’s history, the Las Vegas Police Department has earned an accredition from the state Law Enforcement Accredition Program. That means the city’s insurance premiums are likely to go down, but more importantly, it’s confirmation that we have a quality PD protecting and serving the citizenry.

  • They’re really self servants

    Who is to blame for our country’s problems? Big business? The government? In his Editor’s Note “The blame game” (Nov. 14), Tom McDonald induced a great discussion and a lot of thinking at my house.

    We had just watched a thought provoking Piece by Steve Kroft on 60 Minutes the night before. They wondered why senators and congressman spent millions on getting a job that only pays $174,000 per year and after a few years retire as millionaires well exceeding the money paid to them during their term. When you think about it, it just doesn’t add up.

  • Crossroads to the future

    A statement to the San Miguel County Oil and Gas Task Force read on Nov. 15, 2011:

  • Terr’s column a good reminder

    The article by Jim Terr expressing his pleasure in re-discovering his hometown of Las Vegas was a joy to read, but he left out the mention of one of the treasures that is unique to Las Vegas. Tome on the Range is a special place that is so much more than a bookstore, involved in the community, with activities for all ages and an owner and staff who contribute so much every day to us.  

    Thank you, Jim Terr, for reminding us of what Las Vegas offers us who live here.

  • Nuestra Historia - ‘We have lost our voice’

    Whether Dennis Chavez would win his first bid for the U.S. Senate in 1934, would be determined in Las Vegas. Election results indicated he had lost to incumbent Republican Bronson Cutting by a mere 1,261 votes statewide, and Chavez contested the election only in San Miguel County.
