December 17, 2015 • Dear EditorComments (0)

PD’s job is saving lives

December 16, 2015 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I am responding to your RDR editorial from Dec. 8, “Use of force needs scrutiny.” I am the president of the Roswell Police Officers Association and I felt it was condescending to start with, “It’s good to see a life-affirming action, even though they...

Hope for school board

December 16, 2015 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I was really disappointed to open the RDR and read that both Eloy Ortega and Jim Waldrip had resigned their positions on the school board. These two men have contributed so much to our community. I have the highest level of respect and appreciation for them...
