September 8, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

How about those 1956 Little League World Series Champions! Our Roswell All-Stars played against New Mexico and Texas teams and wound up in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, for the 1956 LLWS Playoffs. These young baseball players during 1956 put Roswell, New Mexico on the map! Many of Roswell’s finest and those young-timers who had a strong connection [&hellip...

Free education paid for by society

September 7, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I read the article written by Briana Hodge this morning, even though I have read her articles before and recognize that she is very young and hasn’t got a clue about what she is saying. She is fine with taking advantage of the free education that is given...

Do your research before criticizing

Did William Dawe’s (letter published Aug. 31) say the Trinity mystery is OK because God is a “mystery” too? It appears you “worship what you do not know” (John 4:22). God said about Jesus: “This is my son,” and Jesus said “The Father is...

In defense of the Watchtower

September 6, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

When I asked my relatives to give me information on what the Jehovah’s Witnesses said about 1975, they gave me several references and for the first time I quoted the Watchtower. But they asked me not to bring this organization into these debates. I told...

Writer disparages scientific consensus

September 5, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Martin Kral’s last letter (published Aug. 30) somehow managed to include Zika, congressional malfeasance, the Rio Olympics, climate change, nuclear energy, and Aedesaegypti mosquitos all in one brief essay, concluding with the words, “I am only a...

Parting shots for the gun debate

September 5, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (1)

Well, it appears by the length of (Craig) Abalos’ letter (published Sept. 1) that I struck a nerve. It has more holes in it than a block of Swiss cheese shot with double-ought buckshot. One point I must counter is that socialism has everything to do with it...

Teachers also deserve better compensation

September 3, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

  I am writing in response to a Friday letter to the editor (by Dee Whitney). I agree our first responders should be highly compensated, no argument there! However, I think our teachers should be the highest paid profession, since their work is the...

Truth and fraud in religion letters

September 3, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Well, it’s all coming out, isn’t it? Truth and fraud in religion. You’ve seen how people use anything to justify their beliefs. For example, no early Christians were paid, yet ministers today take wages for their work, violating Christ’s...

Still more to say on theological issues

September 2, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

In the ongoing discussion about theology, I am having to answer only one or two questions at a time to keep the letters of a reasonable length. This is the second in that series. I don’t know how many more will be needed. Concerning Christians serving in...

Taking umbrage to editor’s column

September 1, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

This is in response to (Tom McDonald’s column) on Aug. 12. Trump and Clinton are not evil people. Evil people are those people in Northern New Mexico who drugged, sexually assaulted, murdered and then dismembered a child. That is evil. So I...
