Hooray and thank you, Velma Karr of Artesia (Letters of the Editor, June 19) for your response and comprehension of my May 21 letter (“Grad speeches should be practical”) that included the intentional error in bacon prices. I was hoping someone would realize and comment on the error and now there are two people who [&hellip...

Perplexed on RPD’s choice of force, timing

June 21, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I am writing concerning our city’s first homicide of the year. I understand and appreciate the dangerous job that our law enforcement performs for our benefit. They never know with whom they are going to encounter, and any situation can turn violent and...

City workers are to be commended

Having an office located just blocks from the Roswell Fire Department’s Central Station, several weeks ago while driving down Walnut Avenue I noted the alley behind the central station to be sparkling clean. At the end of the alley were two of Roswell’s...

Bible doesn’t back up writer’s contentions

June 20, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

A letter by Sandy Smith in the May 28 Record showed some serious misunderstanding of scripture and history. First, she must explain the battle prophesied in Ezekiel 38-39. This event is still in the future, and it tells of a battle in which Gog, a nation from...

Don’t judge without checking the facts

I am writing this letter because of a letter to the editor in RDR on May 21. I have been debating with myself on writing this because the Bible says not to judge, but I feel the need to say this. The letter from Dave Swink struck a nerve in me and this is...

A common refrain among proponents of “traditional” energy sources — fossil fuels in particular — is that renewable energy is somehow cheating, somehow not “playing on a level playing field” since they receive billions of dollars in taxpayer...

Terrorist watch list ignores due process

The shooting in Orlando was horrific. Did Mr. Barrack Obama take the time on Tuesday to help Americans feel safe? Nope, instead he took the moment to raise “his” political agenda and bash everyone who disagreed with his policies. Our police departments...

Support candidate of your choice

June 16, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I feel the need to respond to Ralph Rivera’s response to my letter published on June 14. In my letter I was simply trying to point out the differences of candidates representing our major political parties seeking the office of our nation’s leader, and...

The evil of terrorism can’t be downplayed

June 15, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

To identify the terror attack in Orlando as a mass shooting and or a hate crime is to call 9/11 a multiple airplane crash and Pearl Harbor a Japanese induced multiple capsizing. The blood of the dead is on hands of Obama, for he, along the cowardly bipartisan...
