Police protections part of bad ruling

May 5, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I applaud Tom McDonald’s May 3 column (“Police work is tough, but it has to be scrutinized”), in which he examines the rise of police violence against the public. I agree that the recent killing of Robert Guerin isn’t explained away as easily as the police have described it. In a similar incident in early [&hellip...

Converting pool to lake an excellent alternative

May 2, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I wish to comment on a letter that recently appeared in the Roswell Daily Record on April 17. In his letter, Donald Daugherty expressed his disappointment that Cahoon Park Pool will not be repaired. Many Roswell residents share the same sentiment. However,...

Police, school district probably in collusion

May 2, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (1)

So, the Roswell Police Department arrests a woman for making Facebook inquiries. This is the same RPD that arrested a street preacher for “offending people.” The same RPD that caused the taxpayers to pay upwards of $90,000 to that same preacher....

3 percent confusing climate change reality

April 29, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

A recent letter to the RDR says there is not enough evidence to prove that we humans are causing climate change. I have a question for that writer: If you were examined by 100 doctors and 97 said you had cancer and three said you did not, who would you...

Leadingham’s closure raises questions

April 29, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

After reading an article published April 22 in the Roswell Daily Record about Leadingham Vision Center closing due to repeated vandalism, I have three questions. Why has this gone on for several years? Why didn’t the Roswell Police follow up when given a...

How much evidence do you really need?

April 29, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Don Donigan has been a close friend of mine for many years, and I applaud him for pointing out, in the context of climate change, that causation doesn’t imply correlation (Letters to the Editor, April 28). In this, he’s right, of course. A finding that...
