  • Dulcey Amargo: Warm memories, gentle snow

    Let it snow!    It’s glorious and we need the moisture. The various “inconveniences” notwithstanding, the snowy conditions have created a nice, seasonal ambiance; the cold, white stuff is welcome.

  • Nuestra Historia - Las Vegas’ Mexican-born governor

    The recent flap over a state legislator referring to Gov. Susana Martinez as the “Mexican on the fourth floor,” prompts this topical column, in advance of its intended publication. (A version of this article was planned for a later Nuestra Historia series.)

  • 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

    The Las Vegas/San Miguel Chamber of Commerce has become a divisive organization. And since its name, the Chamber of Commerce, is widely recognized as a contact point for people who live elsewhere but seek to do business in Las Vegas, we fear more harm than good comes from its standing in the community.
