  • Vote for Obama and Heinrich

    I am a Democrat ... and I am urging all of my fellow Democrats who live in San Miguel County to turn out and vote for President Barack Obama and Senate candidate Martin Heinrich on this Election Day.

    I am especially asking all of the Latinos For Obama to turn out and vote for Obama and Heinrich on Election Day, because we cannot win this election without you.

  • ‘Trickle-down’ has been discredited

    Mitt Romney gave the American people a dose of voodoo economics in his interview on Meet the Press this past Sunday.

    He wants to lower taxes for everybody, thereby stimulating the economy. This same trickle-down theory has not grown the economy since invented. He wants defense spending at 4 percent of GDP yet he told the VFW that he wants to increase it by $1.2 trillion over the next 10 years. Then he said that he would eliminate the deficit by the end of his second term. These are contradictory goals.

  • Mil Gracias - Sept. 14, 2012

    On behalf of my wife, Eloisa, and my children, Carlos, Nora Juarros, Mary Ellen Gallegos and Clara Garcia, we would like to thank Wagon Mound School Superintendent Albert Martinez and the members of the Board of Education for approving a resolution to name the school administration building the Zack and Eloisa Montoya Administration Building.

    Special thanks go to Mr. Tom Herrera for initiating the proposed naming and bringing the idea to Superintendent Martinez, who then presented it to the board.

  • Nuestra Historia - New Town glittered with Tamme Opera House

    Emerging as a separate and independent municipality following the failed attempt at unification with the west side in 1882-84, East Las Vegas quickly took root as a dynamic American city. Major water works, and gas and electric projects soon got under way in New Town, and Protestant churches were erected at Zion Hill and on Douglas Avenue. (See “Zion Hill and the Early Protestant Churches,” Nuestra Historia, Jan. 6, 2012.)

  • Waterless refuge

    The lead story in this month’s newsletter by the Friends of the Las Vegas National Wildlife Refuge, La Voz del Refugio, sported an unsurprising headline: “Dry Times on the Refuge.” That’s obvious to anyone who has been out there this summer — the marshes are dry, the fields never really turned green and even the wildlife seems more scarce. It’s no secret that a couple of years of especially dry summers have taken their toll on everything around here, and the refuge is clearly no exception.
