Don’t forget our homeless veterans

January 12, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

This bad weather has remained longer than I have ever seen here. It has been horrendous for the homeless. I can’t imagine where they slept, as we only have one facility for women, and to my knowledge, only two or three for men. I know a man who inherited...

‘Middle ground’ editorial hollow

January 12, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Your Jan. 6 editorial supporting and justifying Obama’s executive orders pertaining to expanded gun-licensing rings hollow. There are those of us who ardently support Second Amendment rights who are reasonable people and understand the need for some type of...

Let’s also impose media controls

We hear all the bad things the police do. I would like you to know that one of the Roswell police officers was passing by All Saints Catholic School. He pulled into the parking lot, got out of his patrol car and started playing catch football with the older...

Global warming piece was irresponsible

December 22, 2015 • Dear EditorComments (0)

At the risk of being redundant, I felt compelled to respond to another irresponsible editorial on climate change (progressives’ new term for manmade global warming). The Dec. 19 editorial follows the standard progressive propaganda. It starts with the...

Fetal tissue report was factual, unbiased

December 22, 2015 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I want to thank you for your reporting about the issue of fetal tissue disposal. Your article was factual and unbiased, which we supporters of Planned Parenthood greatly appreciate. I was heartened to read that Judge Sargus issued a temporary restraining...
