PD intent on 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 may have violated their department policy in doing so.” Our police [&hellip...

Sane controls or arsenals

December 16, 2015 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Thank you for your eminently sane column concerning the epidemic of mass shootings in our country, pointing out that the perpetrators are most often all-American white makes, not “Islamic extremists.” One would think, after 354 mass shootings this...

Hope for the 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...

Guns not the problem

December 15, 2015 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I have a response to “Enforceable gun laws” from Jeannine Wilkins printed on Dec. 8. I would like to thank her for her fictional accounting of what could have happened at the San Bernardino, California shooting. It is good to let your imagination run wild...

Rebutting writer’s shooting scenario

December 13, 2015 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Jeannine Wilkin’s letter to the RDR concerning the San Bernadino shooting and gun laws is seriously flawed. The terrorists did not have machine guns. Even the police do not have machine guns. But let’s go on with your inaccurate tale. You start off with...

Dear Editor: Climate change facts should be verified

December 11, 2015 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I recently read two items in the Roswell Daily Record. One was an editorial on climate change and the other was a letter to the editor praising the paper for the “thoughtful editorial.” It made me wonder: Does anyone use even a minimal amount of logical...

Enforceable gun laws

December 8, 2015 • Dear EditorComments (2)

I’ve been thinking about how different the shooting in San Bernadino, California might have been if the people there had followed the NRA’s latest slogan: “The only way to stop a bad man with a gun is a good man with a gun.” Let’s see how that might...

Trump is a liar

December 8, 2015 • Dear EditorComments (0)

On Wednesday, Nov. 25, Donald Trump responded to Serge Kovaleski, a reporter with a chronic condition called arthrogryposis, which limits the movement of his arms. Trump mimicked Mr. Kovaleski. His explanation was “I merely mimicked what I thought would be...

Climate change and the prophets

December 5, 2015 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Thank you so much for printing the thoughtful editorial on climate change in the Dec. 3 paper. The danger facing the world from climate change is real and very, very serious. Congress’s opposition to action is breathtaking in its shortsightedness. Is it...

Send cards to shelter

December 3, 2015 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Each year, for the past 36 years, I have asked those of you who send out Christmas cards to remember the young people of Assurance Home in your mailings. This is such a nice and simple way to help teenagers, who do not have families or who are unable to live...
