EDITORIAL: Autism center

Southern Nevada’s health care system is woefully deficient in a great many medical specialties, from mental health to pediatrics. No one is more aware of the challenges of obtaining adequate treatment than the parents of autistic children.

EDITORIAL: Washoe County School Board embraces secrecy, insults public

Clark County voters do not need to be reminded of the importance of elected offices at the bottom of the ballot.

The Las Vegas Township constable’s office will close come January, having been abolished by the Clark County Commission. But the next five months can’t go fast enough as Constable John Bonaventura continues to make a mockery of his elected post. Lately, it seems not even a week can pass without more troubling or even outlandish news coming out of the office.
