Obamacare ‘Cadillac Tax’ turn around

October 14, 2015 • EditorialComments (0)

It turns out the Obamacare “Cadillac tax” on the wealthy also hits the factory workers making Cadillacs — and other middle-class Americans. That led presidential candidate Hillary Clinton this week to call for its repeal. “Too many...

Think New Mexico’s latest brilliant brainstorms

October 13, 2015 • EditorialComments (0)

It should be no surprise to any of my regular readers that I’m a big fan of Think New Mexico. It’s important to our state to have a nonpartisan think tank researching quality-of-life issues and pushing for changes, especially in the legislature, that...

Dear Editor: What about Christian, Jewish refugees?

October 10, 2015 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Recently we have been hearing of Muslim refugees flooding Europe and wanting to come to the United States. They are fleeing from the atrocities of the Islamic State in Syria. I have some serious questions. Why don’t we hear about the Christian and Jewish...

A newcomer’s observations of Roswell’s parade

October 8, 2015 • EditorialComments (0)

Parade day in Roswell marks quite an event in the city, the streets lined with people as far as the eye can see. The parade itself began at 10 a.m., though my day started far before that. I personally wanted to experience the town as much as the festivities...
