  • Reader questions need for flu shots

    “Flu strain (is) growing in New Mexico,” according to the Monday, Jan. 6 Optic, “People need to know that and get their shots.”

    I have never had a flu shot and I have never had the flu. I think there is a connection.

    Have there been any studies comparing the incidence of flu among people who get flu shots and people like me who consciously choose not to get flu shots?

  • Women played key role in HU protests

    I would like to start by thanking your periodical and the author for the ever interesting articles on the history of Nuestra Senora de Los Dolores de Las Vegas Grandes. I have especially enjoyed the summation of events leading to the peaceful student take over of Rogers Hall on the NMHU campus during the spring of 1970. The culmination of which was the confirmation of the first Chicano president, at NMHU, by any state- supported university in the United States of America.

    The memories of those events brought back many recollections.

  • Rec Center a great asset for Las Vegas

    In beginning to visit the city recreation center more lately, I am impressed and amazed how many Las Vegans participate in the conditioning offered by the array of weights and exercise machines. The equipment and the facilities are extensive and no doubt expensive, but “hats off” to whoever had the foresight to make that investment. I’m sure it pays off in terms of health and conditioning for many of us.

    Likewise the big, beautiful swimming pool there, which of course appears to be used more in the summer time.

    The atmosphere at Highlands University had grown somber and tense in the week following the appointment of Charles Graham as university president on May 19 1970. Students continued their protests, staging several campus rallies and marching through university buildings, including Burris Hall and the Rodgers administration building.

    Green Bay Press-Gazette on protect yourself against data breaches (Jan. 14):
    The phrase “buyer beware” takes a whole new meaning given the recent data breaches at large retailers
    The phrase is applicable to those who use credit card for their purchases as hackers apparently are moving from attacking the financial services industry to retailers.
    “There will be a wave of attacks on the retail industry throughout the year. The Target hack exposed how vulnerable the industry is,” David Kennedy, founder of TrustedSec, told USA TODAY.
