Please bring back Friday’s TV Screens

February 28, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I just got Friday’s paper and I am very disappointed in the new way you are doing the TV listings. I always looked forward to Friday’s paper for the week’s TV Screens so I could set up what I wanted to record for the week. I can no longer do that with the way you [&hellip...

Not a second-rate citizen by any means

February 28, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

To all concerned: This little caption is dedicated to all the “imported illegal aliens” that came to this country, state and city to “work” and to get themselves “nationalized” as U.S. citizens, or whatever other reason(s) they came here for. The...

‘Media literacy’ editorial nonsense

February 25, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

The recent selection for your guest editorial (published Feb. 20) entitled “Media Literacy in Face of Fake News” certainly has an enticing headline, but alas, as one reads further into the article looking for real substance, all you end up with was more...

Council, mayor should risk their own money

February 25, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Hurray for Fred Moran (letter published Feb. 14) for pointing out that the City Council only consulted one architectural firm about the new aquatic center, when for “all” public works projects, “competitive” surveys and bids are required. The council...

Will be dead and buried before the change hits

February 25, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I was sitting here thinking and that’s pretty fab. I think I’ll rhyme something to poke fun and jab. Global warming is out and replaced with a phrase so that politicians will smile and stand up and praise. Now with any slight change they’ll blame it on...

Reality is obvious but free not to believe

February 25, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Mr. William Dawe’s letter to the editor on Feb. 22 contains all the usual stuff from right-wing sources. He writes very well, and it sounds good, but is inaccurate. Ninety-seven percent of scientists from all over the world have the information that shows...

Memories of learning in a one-room school

February 21, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Think about this: Hold school all year. Have three equal parts of four months each, of which you are only required to complete two. You are required to complete K-1 before starting K-2. When I was attending school, my first problem was with reading. My mother...

Global warming argument specious

February 21, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Mr. John Ford’s letter to the editor (published Sunday), or attempt at poetry, is reminiscent of reading Alice in Wonderland and reflects a comparable level of common sense, credibility and logic. Both can be considered literary nonsense. Liberals and...

Consider promoting from within the city

February 18, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

So long to our latest interim city manager! When will the mayor and city councilors get it? I know the mayor doesn’t think so but, we have competent qualified people right here in Roswell who can do the job of city manager. He keeps looking for someone to...

Climate change and shame, shame, shame

February 18, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I been thinkin’, and that is bad, ‘cause when I look around I get real sad. Global warmin’ ain’t goin’ away, and climate change is here to stay. Thousands of scientists say it is true, so why doesn’t the president believe it too? We’ll keep on...
