LULAC forum shifted to ‘no-show’ Pearce

May 31, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

The Roswell Record’s account of the LULAC forum was atrocious. Lisa Dunlap’s article was stunning in that its lead subject and main content was not about: “Candidates address LULAC convention,” and not about what happened there or what was said. It...

May 31, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

This letter is in regards to the “bathroom” controversy. God made people different. He made a man and a woman. Who on Earth has the right to redefine God’s creation? And who has the authority to say that either sex can use a bathroom specifically stated...

I applaud Tim Howsare for the courage to write his valorous article “Sobriety: My lifelong promise to God.” Mr. Howsare brilliantly reveals his depths of self-doubt and despair before and during his commitment to forgo his addiction to alcohol, and the...

Jews and others on the wrong side

May 27, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

In response to the letters from Rabbi David Fox (May 25) and Russell Scott (May 26), no one is advocating anti-semitism. It’s about presenting clear facts to determine truth and expose fraud. The Jews are most to be pitied not persecuted. They had the...

Many reasons for teacher shortage

May 27, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

So, Superintendent Tom Burris has no idea why there’s a teacher shortage? Allow me to enlighten you Mr. Burris: 1. Teacher education programs are lame. Pedagogy courses are ultra-liberal, ultra-politically correct discussion groups disguised as actual...
