Helping. Passion. Commitment. These are characteristics of our brother, Terry Wilsey, that we have seen and experienced our entire lives. Terry was always our “big brother.” Sadly, Terry left this earth much too early on Dec. 19, 2020. We are sure that he was amid many commitments and had a mind full of ideas for the next way to...
I hope you noticed we didn’t have a December issue of the Spectrum. Thanks to the COVID-19 restrictions, there just wasn’t enough advertising to pay the printer, the postage, etc. We are back but we’ll be going bi-monthly until business is back to normal. I want to thank Gov. Steve Sisolak. As many readers know, I’ve been unhappy with...
2020 was a “Foundation” year and designed to show us what’s most important. It was spiritual awareness to our growth; and in many ways we were “forced” to recognize and honor our priorities. Isolation, loss and money worries were (and still are for many) center stage. There will (still) be a holding-back energy on gatherings until the end of March...
As the New Year approaches, this is the perfect time for reflection on the choices and actions we have made during the last 12 months. Did we choose to act with kindness and consideration? Did we follow the route that led us further along the path to spiritual development? Did we travel consciously aware of our physical and spiritual...
This is the most important election of our lifetime. I bet you’ve heard that this year, right? I know I have; my auto fill almost finished the sentence for me as I typed. But I’m writing it again here now because it’s true. There have been so many things to be afraid of this year. There have been moments of...
We thought that headline might grab your attention. We thought about this, after hearing Judge Amy Coney Barrett proclaim she is “pro-life.” Again, in this issue of the Spectrum, we’re offering the Spectrum Voter Endorsement Guide. Our volunteer group of community leaders have gone through and evaluated every race, as we jokingly say, from President to dog catcher and everything...
There is a video circulating on the Internet in which a white Los Angeles film producer stands for three days in Harrison, Arkansas, holding a Black Lives Matter sign. Among the racial slurs, death threats and confused stares he received, was the oft-shouted line, “You’re white!” by the shocked, SHOCKED!, and angry passersby. The viewer is left to deduce that...
The Las Vegas Spectrum asked several Nevada residents and lawmakers to give us a quote on their memories of the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. "I grew up in the 1960s and 1970s, when it was painfully apparent to me that men, particularly white men, had all the rights and all the power. As a brand new law...
Fear and optimism are the two words that describe this year’s election. Fear of vote and voter suppression, fear of what happens if Democrats fail to show up and vote, fear that the US Postal Service, controlled by a political appointee of Donald Trump will find a way to lose or delay the ballots. Optimism for a change in direction. Optimism...
“A political lifetime,” David Parks said in an oral history interview 20 years ago, “can be really short.” This year, Parks concludes a career in state and local government that has lasted 50 years, 24 of them spent in the Nevada State Legislature as an assemblyman and senator. In that time, Parks and other legislators he persuaded to follow him...
