  • Mil Gracias letter

    On behalf of our bowling team “The Silver Bullets,” we would like to gratitude and appreciation to Community First Bank and the Bank of Las Vegas, and especially Greg Levenson, BLV president, for supporting and sponsoring our team (in 2010 tournament play).

    There are no words which can express the gratitude and appreciation we feel for helping our team make these events possible. From the bottom of our hearts, we say thank you!

  • Mil Gracias letter

    I wish to thank the following people for helping me host a pre-registration reception for the 1960 graduates of Las Vegas Robertson High School reunion and in memory of our friend Theresa Garcia, a Immaculate Conception School cheerleader who passed away on August 13, 2004.

  • Mil Gracias letter

    As a citizen of Las Vegas and a sports enthusiast, I would like to thank New Mexico Highlands University, Luna Community College, the East and West school districts, and the sponsors and the people who worked to make the 10th annual All-Star games a success.

  • As It Is: Selective outrage

    Lt. Gov. Diane Denish has a heck of a dilemma: The Democrat wants to distance herself from Gov. Bill Richardson, but she doesn’t want to offend the big cheese and his allies.

    So, to this day,  Denish has yet to condemn the pay-to-play atmosphere in the state’s capital under Richardson. And that’s hurting her.

    Some diehard Democrats in Las Vegas are even questioning whether they should support her in the November election. They’re contemplating voting for the Republican, Susana Martinez, the Las Cruces district attorney.

  • Editorial: Volunteers come first

    For a small town, Las Vegas has an especially large and energetic arts community. By their very nature, artists are an independent-minded lot. And that’s a good thing. After all, mindless conformity has no real place in artistic expression.

    But we hate to see division within the ranks of local artists and craftspeople in promoting their valuable industry. Yet that’s what has happened in recent weeks.

  • Letter: Artist comes up against roadblocks

    I was a 13 year old, running through the cornfields on an isolated ranch in northeastern New Mexico when I began studying oil painting. In this unlikely setting, I began to be the artist that I am today.  I’m referring to commitment, study, belief, production, teaching, promotion and even having to write a letter such as this. On three different occasions this summer I attempted to participate in our community as an artist and encountered serious inadequacies.

  • Letter: One-way plan would be a waste

    Changing National Avenue to a one-way street going west from Eighth to 12th streets would be a waste of time, money and a public safety concern.

    Increasing traffic to the side streets will most certainly affect students and residents in the area. This change would confuse visitors to our city also.

    The beauty of the university buildings on National Avenue, are meant to be admired and seen from both directions.

  • Editorial Thumbs

    Thumbs UP for ... BACK TO SCHOOL. Too many of us assume that kids hate to go back to school each fall, but that’s not altogether true. Many students look forward to a return to the classroom, where they get to see old friends, meet new teachers and take on new and interesting challenges. And the younger they are, the more likely they are glad to be going back.
