Touched deeply by mother’s pain

June 25, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

A few days ago, the worst hate crime in American history occurred and ever since I have not been the same. I’m a different person, not because I knew anyone personally who passed, but because a mother of one of the victims reached out to me. It wasn’t by...

City officials should address pool issues

June 25, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I have some questions about closing the pool that I think the city officials should answer. 1. What are the new safety issues that have not been there for the last 20 years? 2. In the FY 2013/2014 the city spent $316,485 for improvements at the pool, not...

Opposing beliefs can lead to war

June 24, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Once again we have someone arguing with another over what they believe to be the “true meaning” of a particular scripture in the Bible. People don’t know it yet, but this “disagreement” is what leads to war. The war between the Catholics and the...

Officials need to do as promised years ago

June 23, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Roswell, Chaves/Eddy/Lea County and New Mexico officials most probably do not remember public hearings 30 years ago when the Department of Energy sited the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant in Eddy County. During the meetings conducted by the DOE in Albuquerque,...

Wolfe served Roswell, family will be missed

June 23, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

In the June 5 Sunday paper, there was the article from Steve Wolfe telling us that he and Gwen would be moving to the Amarillo area to be closer to their children and grandchildren. This is normal behavior for us older people so we understand, however, their...

Mayor not caring about the poor

June 21, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Like most “limited government” politicians, our mayor, Dennis Kintigh, evidently believes that the purposes of government at any level are to serve the rich and punish the poor. How else are we to interpret the positive zeal with which he seized the...

Error was intentional, to highlight problem

June 21, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Hooray and thank you, Velma Karr of Artesia (Letters of the Editor, June 19) for your response and comprehension of my May 21 letter (“Grad speeches should be practical”) that included the intentional error in bacon prices. I was hoping someone would...
