  • The gala’s success

    Could the success of Saturday night’s Highlands University President’s Gala be a watershed accomplishment for Las Vegas? To hear some people talking about the event, it just might be the beginning of something even bigger.

    Of course, it’s easy to say it was a great success for a good cause, since more than $100,000 was netted for student scholarships, but what went into the gala, and what was celebrated, adds exponentially to its overall value.

  • Work of Art - Hopefully this is correct

    The issue still isn’t settled. It might never be. Hopefully, this column will enlighten some people and bring a few to my way of thinking. Notice I said “hopefully.”

    With the conclusion of the first-ever municipal election runoffs for Las Vegas, perhaps it’s a good time to assess the value of runoffs. The city has made a significant investment in the process, so now’s a good time to take stock.

    Alfonso Ortiz has pulled it off, but Tonita Gurule-Giron is far from done. And yet it’s the new guy who may now hold the keys to power at City Hall.
    I’ll take ‘em one at a time.

  • Abuse occurring in public housing

    I live in Las Vegas public housing. I have lived here most of my life. It is mostly what I know I am also thankful and appreciative for.

    I am writing this letter to let the Las Vegas City Council know exactly what is going on here.

    The abuse that I have been documenting since 2005 that has been going on here for years is inhumane.

    THUMBS UP! IMPRESSIVE TURNOUT. It’s not often that one sees a runoff turn out more voters than the election that created the runoff, but that’s exactly what happened with the Las Vegas runoffs, which concluded earlier this week. The 2,604 votes cast were 65 voters more than turned out for the eight candidates on the March 6 ballot. Likewise, 25 more voters turned out for the runoff than before.
