Rehab, care center provides great care

March 25, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I would like to thank Mr. Ken Welsh and the nurses, therapist and staff of Pecos Valley Rehabilitation/Casa Maria Health Care Center. I just completed a 26 day stay there. I could not have been taken better care of. The facility is beautiful and well...

Slow library upgrade city’s responsibility

March 25, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I want to disagree with Ms. Cindy Wiser, president of the Friends of the Roswell Public Library. She was quoted in March 19’s paper, “Most library IT systems restored after upgrade,” as saying the upgrade produced a minor inconvenience, in that she had...

Shift in college fees could benefit students

March 24, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Free college education outlined by Bernie Sanders is appealing to many prospective students and their families. Possible in the USA? Unlikely! In a country I am familiar with, Norway, it is a reality but at a cost not likely acceptable here. They pay over 50...

‘Special rights’ for transgenders?

March 23, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I shouldn’t have been surprised to hear that Albuquerque Public Schools voted to give special rights to “transgender” students. Notice I said “special rights.” Before APS voted on the issue, students all had the same rights. A student was to use the...

Drop the hypen; be Americans

March 23, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I am writing because I take some exception to a letter written by Bobby Villegas that was published on March 23. I fully agree with him that Irish and Mexicans should not be stereotyped for St. Patrick’s Day or Cinco de Mayo drinking. Most of the drinking...

Bottomless Lakes NM’s 1st state park

I was surprised to read the Historical Society for Southeast New Mexico’s submission about the Bottomless Lakes (BLSP) being “New Mexico’s third State Park” in Sunday’s March 20 Vistas section. As co-director of the Bottomless Triathlon that will...

Column stereotypes Irish, Mexicans

March 22, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

In the Thursday, March 17 edition of the Roswell Daily Record, Vanessa Kahin wrote an article about St. Patrick. It was nice of her to read up on a tradition about the Irish. I thought perhaps she should consider some sensitivity training on the differences...

Dear Editor: Safety, security should come first

March 21, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

This is not necessarily meant to be a political letter. What I am talking about should apply to any person in any government job, just like it applies to our men in service. The political party they belong to has absolutely no bearing on it. I would like to...

Practice what religious preach

March 19, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I noticed the letters from the students saying they definitely don’t want a law allowing discrimination. You see how easy it is to manipulate young minds. That’s not what people are asking for. Russell Scott explained it clearly. People do not want to...
