Today's Opinions

  • Ignorance is the tragedy

    When a child has an obvious physical handicap, most people react with sympathy, understanding and compassion. More often than not, one of the parents cannot work because of the around-the-clock care their children require. The parents of these special needs children are viewed by society as saints or at the very least have earned a direct flight into heaven.

  • ‘My councilor’ way off base

    My councilor is posturing in an attempt to seem interested in the Public Welfare while only seeking publicity.

    This is not the first time my councilor has blustered and gone on and on, like a dog with a bone. However, the “bone” she chooses to chew on has little if anything to do with the issues at hand.

    Water is an issue that I would expect all members of the governing body to support and do all in their power to facilitate.

  • Impressed with special sections

    I am the owner of Unikat Fine Jewelry here in Las Vegas (and vice president of the Las Vegas First Independent Business Alliance). I wanted to mention that I was very impressed with the outcome of the Summer Destinations and now also the Tradiciones.

    I have had many positive comments by customers who read my article and ad in both supplements and attracted new customers to my business; one person even came off the highway after reading the article on my business to stop by and see my store and our town.

  • A divisive chamber

  • Work of Art: Overwhelmed by ‘stuff’

    Like many people, we Trujillos have problems with “stuff.” Problems not as in “We can’t get enough stuff,” but as in, “We have simply too much stuff.”
    Let me explain:

    A trip to Samaritan House or Salvation Army is supposed to put our household on a diet: The intention is to take clean, usable stuff to either repository in order to 1) help someone else out, 2) help keep a few people employed and 2) help clear out our own place.

  • A plan for Ojitos Frios

    It’s an unfortunate reality that water wells in the Ojitos Frios subdivision south of Las Vegas have been drying up for some time now. Years ago, residents said it was due to the city’s draw from Taylor Wells, and there’s still plenty of evidence to support that contention. But the city needs the water — it’s about 10 percent of its supply these days — and the rural property owners just north of Romeroville are the ones who must suffer.
