    Archbishop’s Christmas message
    Christmas decorations are up all over New Mexico. But it seems the emphasis is on large Santa Claus figurines, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman. There are twinkling lights and tinsel everywhere and people are busy buying and wrapping gifts in fancy paper with big bows. We are all sending and receiving Christmas cards. Dinners and trips are being planned. Lots of money is being spent. We are told we are supposed to say “Happy Holidays” — not Merry Christmas!

    Frustrated
    parent
    I write this letter as a concerned and frustrated parent of an eighth grade child who attends Rio Gallinas Charter School. The upper grade classes are in the midst of their third move this school year with at least one more move to go. Not only my daughter, but all the students from sixth to eighth grade at this school are losing valuable learning time, and for what reason?

    City’s priorities
    are skewed

    There is no other town that comes together after a tragedy better than the Las Vegas community, especially when it comes to our children. This time, however, the city of Las Vegas has chosen to be part of the problem instead of the solution.

    Headline about kid was offensive
    In response to the Monday October 6th headline article “You think your kid is bad?”:
    As an educator in this community, it saddened me to see the reflection that was placed upon our youth in the title of this article. We are lucky to have middle school students here, in Las Vegas, who are incredible helpers, builders, brilliant minds and savvy technological gurus.

    Chains not answer for local economy
    Our local misleadership has crossed another Rubicon, their “economic development” efforts having advanced from the merely ineffective to the actively pernicious.
    Our city just gave $50,000 to a Fort Worth consulting firm in return for inviting a host of chain businesses and franchises into our community? That is conclusive proof that our city’s leaders have absolutely no clue about what makes local economies flourish or fail.

    We are a nation of immigrants
    Recently, I received from a friend in Iowa several forwarded emails regarding immigration. Usually she sends interesting humor or musical pieces. I was shocked at the racist and intolerant tone set in these. Some really sounded like the United States should be kept pure Aryan Christian (There’s an oxymoron for you!). They were frightening but couched in sometimes humorous language. I wrote the following to my friend:
