September 1, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I am writing in regard to Artesia lowering the pay of their police and their firemen. The criminals are waging a war on our police and any one of authority they should be getting a raise, they should be the highest paid people in the land. They put their life on the line for us. [&hellip...

Non-golfer ponders course management

September 1, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I really tried to refrain from writing this letter, but couldn’t do it. Wow! What a great deal. Only $350,000 a year for the maintenance of our 225-square-mile golf course; 144,000 divided by 640 = 225. What? That was a typo? Was the report that a city...

Too many guns that are easily accessed

August 31, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Mr. Griffin, socialism has nothing to do with gun control. Almost every developed nation on earth, all of which are fundamentally capitalist, have much more strident gun control measures than the USA. You say that the Constitution should not be trifled with....

Considerations for building new pool

A short time ago, a letter to the editor told us about the great recreational center that Durango, Colorado, has but left out a couple of details that affects Roswell and Chaves County. First, comparing Durango and La Plata County to Roswell and Chaves County...

Background checks an overreaction

August 30, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I disagree with School Board member Nicole Austin and with the RDR Snippets editorial (Aug. 27) when both say it is imperative for all school employees who were employed before 1998 to have background checks performed. If a person has been working in the...

Watchtower not the best source

President Obama’s Saturday message on Aug. 27 was once again about the lack of response by Congress to pass a bill that would allocate funding to manage the potential of a Zika virus outbreak in the United States. When Congress returns on Sept. 9, the Zika...

On mass shootings and socialist thinking

August 29, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Mr. Craig Abalos is right: There will be another mass shooting — not “if” but “when.” And it will be done by a criminal, not by a law-abiding citizen. If you are present, what will you do? Waive copies of silly laws at him? Criminals don’t obey...

Debate on the Holy Trinity continues

August 27, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

First, I think these debates about truth do matter. But I wish they’d end because many have already made up their minds. William Dawe on Aug. 23 says Russell Scott and Pastor Reynolds provided “Biblical and historic documentation.” Really? Didn’t...

Conflicting sources among religions

August 26, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

In response to William Dawe’s letter, it’s true I have some relatives that are Jehovah’s Witnesses. I look at them critically as well and I see they never claimed to be infallible. Even the disciples wondered when the Kingdom was arriving (Acts 1:6)....
