It would be nice to have a new $20 million water park, a new multi-million dollar convention center even though we lose money on the one we already have, and let’s throw in a big tent city. Build it and they will come. Sounds great but we are 19 officers short because they are hardly [&hellip...

Got a laugh from loser’s point of view

January 18, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I enjoyed reading your article (Wednesday) morning (Dispatch New Mexico column by Tom McDonald). I always enjoy a good laugh before I start the day. You guys keep stirring the pot. Maybe you’ll get lucky and someone will actually believe what you are...

January 17, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Once again the RDR editorial staff has maintained it’s standard editorial policy by printing four letters to refute one letter written by Linda Kral. In her letter of Jan. 10, she made several valid points as to the Record’s editorial policy in regards to...

When truth has no meaning, power rules

January 17, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

The City Council in its infinite wisdom has passed an ordinance for issuance of a bond of up to $21 million to replace all water meters in the city with new electronic “smart” meters. The main argument made in support of the ordinance is that the existing...

Trump not named but we all knew

January 11, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I read with interest Linda Kral’s letter (published Jan. 10) regarding the recent flap between Donald Trump and Meryl Streep. What many conservatives fail to realize is that Streep didn’t even mention Trump by name. Trump’s actions were so officious and...

Apt quote from a holiday letter

January 11, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

With due respect, I have a question for Mrs. Kral (letters, Jan. 10). On what planet do you live? Your letter in the paper was even more biased than the reportage you complained about. I am of a totally different opinion regarding the election of this wild...
