    U.S. must condemn both sides
    I was horrified to learn that Secretary of State John Kerry has declared actions of the Israeli government in Gaza are “legitimate and appropriate.” The targeting of civilians and civilian infrastructure is never ever either “legitimate” or “appropriate”.

    No shame in standing up for beliefs
    There should be an inalienable understanding that the “Fiestas” are in celebration of our people, our talents, our accomplishments. It is fitting that our Vegas All Stars, Little Leaguers, veterans, school clubs, civic organizations, Fiesta royalty and our nearby communities be celebrated.
    Our attention should not be diverted from the greatness of community by an undeserved slap in our faces by Alfonso Ortiz’s poor judgment again.

    Gov is improving education
    My name is Sarah Vasquez. I live up in the beautiful mountains of Chacon, N.M., with my husband, Ruben. He is retired, and is now enjoying those choices that we all look forward to one day be able to make in our daily lives.
    I, on the other hand, still work and drive approximately 54 miles each way to and from my job in another beautiful spot in our state, Angel Fire. I work in Property Management in a great place, Angel Fire Resort. I have been there since 2000.

    Regensbergs not treated fairly
    Congratulations to the winners, and thanks to everyone who voted for the Regensberg boys. As my mother in law used to say, “Whether you win or lose you need not worry because you are rich. Your faith is a treasure no one can touch. So at all times and places give thanks for the Lord’s kind glory and honor are the Lord’s and remember that only one life it will soon be past and only what is done for Christ will last.”

    East officials owe explanation
    In reading the latest news on the Las Vegas City Schools financial woes I am truly surprised. How could the school board, superintendant, and the Public Education Department be blinded by the outrageous amount of $3.46 million dollars of loans to the operational budget over the past several years?
    The following is a description of the funds that were borrowed against:
