June 14, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

May 14, 2016, the Roswell Daily Record headlines read “USDA grant, city funding propel air center study.” It would seem to me engineering firms would want to help to submit a study by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the city of Roswell.

Reaction to letter, RDR editorial

June 14, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

On June 14, John Grogan dismissed my June 10 letter as an “incomprehensible rant” because I trashed Democrats who unlawfully disrupt Trump rallies and hurt police. Most Democrats aren’t cowardly thugs just as Trump isn’t a bigot for pointing out some...

Kintigh doesn’t have second term locked up

June 10, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I read in the June 7 Roswell Daily Record about the resignation of the new city manager, Steve Polasek. Well, all things happen for the best and I didn’t believe that Polasek was a great fit for Roswell anyway. In the article, Mayor Dennis Kintigh states,...

Inequalities rest on inequities

June 9, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

June 9, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

With the selection of Donald Trump as its nominee for president, the Republican Party underwent a peaceful revolution. Although he wasn’t my choice, as a member of Dead Democrats Voting for Republicans, I’ll pack a big lunch and vote for him when the...
