retirement
November 22, 2013 | 03:40 AM

Plan, plan, plan. The key has always been and still is to start saving/investing early in life, be consistent, take advantage of any employer matching plan, avoid risks with your nest egg and plan for multiple streams of income once retired (social security, pensions, dividends, part time work, etc.). There is a great deal of information about retirement available on the web. One of the sites I use is the site Retirement And Good Living provides information on finances, health, retirement locations, part time work and also has a great blog of guest posts from around the globe about a variety of retirement topics. And it is free.

last quote...
October 25, 2013 | 11:02 AM

I think the last quote was taken out of context. I believe that Mulroy was referring to taking water from Spring Valley, and not the planned 3rd intake at Lake Mead.

There are no farms and basins to recharge at Lake Mead. However, in Spring Valley (where SNWA has purchased land and water-right) there are farms, basins that may benefit from recharge (both naturally and artificially), and plenty of environmental concerns.

What she means by, "I know that the technology of today will allow us to recharge those basis", is anyones guess. We seem to be in dire need of additional water sources, and planning to (artificially) recharge a basin in the middle of Nevada seems to be a tremendous undertaking. Where will the water come from?

What a moving article...Officer Perea, you and your teammates deserve our heartfelt thanks for all that you do. I deeply appreciate your care of the animals and the people involved. What a difficult job, yet you continue to do it day in and day out. Keep up the good fight!

Being a 61 year old registered Republican, I have never been so upset. We do have to have term limits! We do need to remove the monetary rewards to serving in congress! These individuals really don't believe they are part of the citizenry! I believe if this were 150 years ago we would have shot quite a few by now.

I would like to know when I am getting a refund ? I pay taxes to help pay for the parks and other government services and if those services are not going to be provided - I want a refund of my tax dollars. I would also like to know how I as an american citizen can be kept from a property that is owned by the people of the United States of America?? Are we saying that the government is a seperate entity and the american citizen has no rights to the property we PAID for ??

Every member of congress should be fired for dereliction of duty and exceptionally bad job performance. I propose that we use the voter registraton method and when names are pulled and your name comes up - you go to congress for your term then come home and then the next group goes and screw the republicans and democrats.

Enough is Enough!

Lake Mead Closed
October 02, 2013 | 03:45 PM

Other than protecting the dam, why is it that we need federal employees at Lake Mead?

Why must a ranger be present for me to enjoy our lake?

Is there access to the lake elsewhere?

What's the law say about using the lake when it's closed?

Has this ever been done before? I've been visiting twice a year since 1987 and have never seen this.

I have read this article as a citizen of Henderson and a person who devotes volunteer time in the endless world of anima rescue and welfare.

I do know Officer Perea firsthand. Reading this article creates a clear vision in my mind of what any given day is like in the life of an Animal Control Officer. The tragedy mixed with the triumph. Officer Perea does wear his heart on his sleeve, literally. He is a major reason that I continue to fight for homeless pets and try to offer support to our local animal shelter who is in need of support from the community.

I can say that some local animal shelters, being kill shelters, have been low on my list of places that I would like to support. However, in getting to know the facts ( good and bad) and meeting Officer Perea and other Henderson Animal Control Staff, my eyes have been opened to the realities that are Animal Control. Officer Perea lays out how it is quite frankly. For that, I have a true respect for this man. He, as well as other staff members, have shown what their goal is and that they too care for animals and animal welfare. Care is an understatement. Going above and beyond what is expected an outlined would be more accurate.

As I have said so many times before, I cannot imagine having the job that Officer Perea and the other officers have. I thank him and other staff members for doing what they can to educate the public as that is the first step in reducing the tragedies that are seen everyday. They are also open to working with supportive community members who would like to work as a team to make a difference in the world and animal welfare/rescue.

Thank you for this article and to Officer Perea for being an inspiration and creating a new found motivation in me, personally!

How is it possible that this individual can accumulate 150 different weapons without raising some sort of suspisions within law enforcement.

press ethics
April 13, 2013 | 09:46 AM

The comments of the author of "Press ethics: going to the dogs?" were spot on! Unfortunately as Print, Online, and television media outlets find themselves in dire straits trying to hold on to their audience and the subsequent revenues they produce, they are increasingly with "doing whatever it takes" to stay viable. But the down side to that is the continuing dumbing down of the intelligence level of the public. Which to me is the greatest danger to our way of life. If we are not sharp enough to recognize the root cause of our problems, how are we ever going to make intelligent solutions on the answers to them? Our serious news sources should educate and inform, not titillate and provoke ridicule. The founding fathers enshrined the rights of freedom of the press to insure the country will always have an informed and educated populace, which in theory would guard against any unjust "hijacking" of our society. The media needs to understand their importance, and hold themselves to the strictest and highest of standards...our american way of life depend upon them doing so.

I hope that police authorities give fair and just propositions with issues like this. Incidents like this inflict nightmares on teens' minds and as parents, we also do our part not to let these kinds of cases happen to our kids. I thought of looking up for safety service that would ensure my kids' safety. This safety service I found gets me connected to a safety network or escalate my call to the nearest 911 when needed with just a click, it has other cool features that are helpful for your kids.

This news paper is really going to print something from an ex wife. I find it hard to believe that Arevalo would confide in the woman he is divorcing. Common sense would tell me the only person who would think this man to be a racist is someone who could benefit from it in the manner his ex-wife is.
