Shift in college fees could benefit students

March 24, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Free college education outlined by Bernie Sanders is appealing to many prospective students and their families. Possible in the USA? Unlikely!

‘Special rights’ for transgenders?

March 23, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I shouldn’t have been surprised to hear that Albuquerque Public Schools voted to give special rights to “transgender” students. Notice I said “special rights.” Before APS voted on the issue, students all had the same rights. A student was to use the...

Drop the hypen; be Americans

March 23, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I am writing because I take some exception to a letter written by Bobby Villegas that was published on March 23. I fully agree with him that Irish and Mexicans should not be stereotyped for St. Patrick’s Day or Cinco de Mayo drinking. Most of the drinking...

Bottomless Lakes NM’s 1st state park

March 22, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I was surprised to read the Historical Society for Southeast New Mexico’s submission about the Bottomless Lakes (BLSP) being “New Mexico’s third State Park” in Sunday’s March 20 Vistas section. As co-director of the Bottomless Triathlon that will...

Column stereotypes Irish, Mexicans

March 22, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

In the Thursday, March 17 edition of the Roswell Daily Record, Vanessa Kahin wrote an article about St. Patrick. It was nice of her to read up on a tradition about the Irish. I thought perhaps she should consider some sensitivity training on the differences...

This is not necessarily meant to be a political letter. What I am talking about should apply to any person in any government job, just like it applies to our men in service. The political party they belong to has absolutely no bearing on it. I would like to...

Practice what religious preach

March 19, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I noticed the letters from the students saying they definitely don’t want a law allowing discrimination. You see how easy it is to manipulate young minds. That’s not what people are asking for. Russell Scott explained it clearly. People do not want to...

Questions seeking strong answers

March 17, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

In reading the letter to the editor by John Ford dated March 12, I have a few questions to ask Mr. Ford. I do agree with you with regards to President George W. Bush, we should never have invaded Iraq. I, too, am very tired of the manner that this year’s...

The 35th annual Kymera Pecos Valley Stampede was conducted recently and was a rousing success. As are all of our road races, all money after expenses is donated to worthy, local entities. The stampede has two designated charities: Altrusa Club of Roswell...

Why do Americans even consider Trump?

March 16, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

What is wrong with so many of the American people? How can they consider Trump as a representative of this country? The man is crass and vulgar, he seems to not know what diplomacy is. To say his behavior is inappropriate is an understatement. I believe the...
