Are We Ready for School? BY DR. TIFFANY TYLER Last month, a new year school began in our community. This special time was characterized by our usual focus on registration, purchasing school supplies, immunizations, and all of the traditions associated with the return to the classroom. Now that our school year is underway, it’s time to take stock of where we are as a community […]

What’s at stake — and who will sit at the table? BY DR. ELLEN BROWN Power. Max Weber defined it as “the ability of an individual or group to achieve their own goals or aims when others are trying to prevent them from realizing them.” We seek power for varying reasons and objectives. Some are known and others are a little less certain. Often, […]

Are We Ready for School? BY DR. TIFFANY TYLER This month, students across Nevada will return to school, and there will be shopping, registration and angst over who will be in whose class. As this annual pilgrimage begins, it is important to ask a very simple but consequential question: “Are we ready?” Are we prepared to support and ensure student success? As we gauge preparedness, are […]

BY CAPUCINE HOLMES There is so much going on in Las Vegas, from the lights to the parties, that you sometimes sit back and ask yourself whether it is real. A person can lose themselves in the fast pace of the limelight — overbooking, overworking, and running from place to place to soothe constant feelings of FOMO. Reality does tend to catch up with all of us, and for some […]

PEACE: Your Best Self

Filed under Community, Peace

  Many of us are our own worst critics. We examine ourselves from the reflection of expectations that surround us. Judging personal excellence against an imaginary status quo is a false measurement that cannot fulfill your eternal soul — the soul that breaks through the barriers of restraint for our own truth to be revealed. The courageous soul is one that possesses the self-confidence […]

BY CAPUCINE HOLMES Las Vegas is poised to become America’s next football mecca. The $1.9 billion, 65,000-seat NFL stadium now being built is creating extraordinary opportunities for minorities and women in construction, vendors, tourism, and more as the city prepares to officially welcome the Raiders in 2020. And the team already has a local superfan: Sheryl Burnham, a Las Vegas resident who worked with the Raiders when the team was […]

A Real Safety Net for Our Kids BY DR. TIFFANY TYLER In the wake of the school shootings occurring nationally, we must come to understand that real safety includes the psychological security of knowing that others care, others will notice, and others will respond. Kids need the safety of knowing that others care when they are hurting and believe there is no way out; the […]

Uncover Your History With Open Eyes

BY TIFFANY MAYES EHOLOR My mother is black and my father is white. And I’m reclaiming my history — as a native Nevadan. After watching the “60 Minutes” segment reported by Oprah Winfrey, I became curious about the grand opening of the National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, Ala. This monument documents the lynching of thousands of African-American men, women and […]
