  • Nuestra Historia - Taft made it official: NM statehood!

    It was almost two months before New Mexico determined the election results for its first state officials, as several won by razor-thin margins, and those contests consumed many weeks of legal argument. Finally, on Dec. 30, 1911, the Nov. 7 election was certified to Washington.

  • Can we trust the school system?

    On the 22 day of February my son who attends West Las Vegas Middle School was (allegedly) assaulted by an assistant football coach. On April 9 there was an article in the paper that another child was (allegedly) being harassed by the principal Steve Sandoval. What is going on with the “so-called leaders” of our school?  

  • Thoughts on anti-tethering law

    Dogs housed in fenced yards can pose public heath risks, so before mandating the “anti-tethering law” please consider the following.

    1. A chain link fence will not prevent a curious child/person from sticking their hands through the fence and possibly being bitten. Then the dog owner would more than likely be sued.

  • Supports the new ordinance

    I support the anti-tethering legislation. I  moved to Las Vegas seven years ago for school, and have since then made this  town my home. I bought a house, I work here, I vote here, and I do my part of  community service.

    I also have a dog and it breaks my heart to see other  people’s dogs tied up constantly with no stimulation, attention, or companionship. I’m so proud of my town for passing this law.

  • ‘A crime against our pets’

    About two weeks ago, I had an emergency situation, with one of my pets, at home, at approximately 11:30 p.m. In my panic, while trying to tend to my pet, I called all three of our local vets, all three of which had their cell phone numbers on messages for “after-hour emergencies.” I called all three cell phones to no avail. I was told by the answering service of one vet, to take my pet to Santa Fe to the emergency pet hospital.  That would have been a great  idea, if I didn’t live nearly an hour away.

  • Directory helps kids get support

    Happy Administrative Professionals Day! To celebrate the day this April 25, the New Mexico New Hires Directory would like to thank payroll professionals for their critical role in making sure that children receive the financial support they deserve.
