Today's Opinions

  • Editor's Note: Doctors and lawyers

    It was 1992. Months earlier, my first daughter had been born, and life was good. I had a reporter’s job at a weekly newspaper and, after a scare in the first days of Amy’s life, we were raising a healthy baby.

    Looking back at that time, we had so much more than we realized.

    What we didn’t have, however, was money.

  • Mil Gracias

    We, the parents, family members and friends of our beloved hero, Jesus “Jesse” Griego, would like to thank all who were involved in renaming the Valley Middle School gym “The Jesus ‘Jesse’ Griego Middle School Gym.”

  • Dulcey Amargo: Life is good

    Recently I was listening to my wake-up call — KFUN — in the early morning, and Martha Johnsen was talking about some mishaps that had beset her.

    Innocuous, everyday things they were — a fly in her coffee cup, a lost earring, a flat tire. Yet, her positive outlook offset these mischances. Her stories about the drawbacks are always followed by explanations  of how the problems could have been worse. She ended her Jeremiad with “Life is good.”

    I’ll have to agree wholeheartedly with her.

  • Las Vegas has even more to offer

    The article by Jim Terr expressing his pleasure in rediscovering 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.

  • Memory unit much needed

    We would like to express our sincere appreciation to Vida Encantada Rehabilitation and Nursing Center and their excellent staff for opening the Memory Care Unit this fall.

    This was a much needed addition for persons living with Alzheimer’s Disease and other memory disorders in our community. The benefit has been immediate and very positive.

  • Nuestra Historia - El Senador

    An icon in our state’s history, he remains among our foremost citizens. His bold achievements continue to affect the lives of every New Mexican, and his story is as relevant in Las Vegas as it is in Albuquerque’s south valley, or any other place in the Land of Enchantment.

    He was the great Dennis Chavez, whose life-size bronze represents New Mexico in Statuary Hall in our nation’s Capitol, where he stands alongside  George Washington, Daniel Webster and Dwight Eisenhower.
