  • Work of Art - Things smell all right

    A long-held belief — whether it’s based on myth, practice or even superstition — says that whatever doesn’t kill us makes us stronger.

    Taking that analogy a step farther, we can then assume that a broken bone actually heals and becomes tougher, or a person who survives a particular illness soon become impervious to that ailment, a kind of immunity.

    It was later in life that I heard many versions of the “makes us stronger” mantra, usually on the football field or at some athletic event.

  • Hanukkah and heritage

    Hanukkah, which began Saturday night and lasts through Sunday, may not be the dominant December holiday in New Mexico; it is still celebrated by many and serves as a reminder that Jews have played an important role in New Mexico, and especially here in Las Vegas.

  • Editor's Note - Throwing a pity party

    Think I’ll throw myself a pity party.  I caught a cold, I’m overworked, I’m gaining weight from my comfort food and I have no company to enjoy my misery with, so I’m in good shape to invite you in as I feel sorry for myself.

As a journalist and an editor, I believe the whole truth needs to be told to the public and I find your views one sided and unreliable.

  • Revisit policy on effluent water

    An open letter to the mayor and councilors:

    My family and I live in an historic district of Las Vegas. My wife and I have roots here going back many generations. We love our community and support any and all efforts to improve and beautify it.

    THUMBS DOWN! ANOTHER LEAK. Once again the city of Las Vegas has been battling a big leak in its water line, this one to the tune of an estimated 110 gallons a minute, or 158,000 gallons a day, when it was at its worst. That’s considerably worse than the last big leak, on the old Medite water line, last September.
    The same contractor that fixed the Medite line leak was brought in to fix the water treatment plant line. Here’s hoping for a long-term fix.
