Early Roswellians planted summer shade trees

If we look back a century, we can see that the first generation of Roswellians busily planted their street sides with willows and cottonwoods, for beauty and for shade. They were mostly immigrants from the Midwest and the South, so they appreciated the value...

Will gun control reduce casualties, mass shootings?

October 28, 2015 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Political views from a neighbor

October 13, 2015 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Bernie Sanders and I are opposites, he’s a socialist and I’m to the right of Rush, but we could share a bowl of ice cream. We agree that the immigration and trade policies of Democrats and Republicans enrich the wealthy and cost us jobs. The middle class...

Thoughts on gun control

October 13, 2015 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Over the past several days I have seen the anti-gun editorial cartoons and the pro-gun control article in the Roswell Daily Record favoring additional restrictive laws in order to stop the violence which has seemingly become rampant in this country. I would...

Dear Editor: What about Christian, Jewish refugees?

October 10, 2015 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Recently we have been hearing of Muslim refugees flooding Europe and wanting to come to the United States. They are fleeing from the atrocities of the Islamic State in Syria. I have some serious questions. Why don’t we hear about the Christian and Jewish...
