  • Storrie Project offers its thanks

    “A los que nos ayudaron y a los que nos toleradon,” Muchisimas Gracias! – To those who assisted us and to those who tolerated us, during the repairs of the Storrie Project Water Users Association delivery canal, we are most appreciative.
    The priorities for the day of Friday, Sept. 13 were altered for most of the citizens in Las Vegas and San Miguel County, as we absorbed what most are calling a 100-year flood in our area and a 1000-year flood in other areas in the vicinity.  

  • Duran’s son upset over claim

    My name is Dwight Xavier Duran. I am the son of the late Dwight Duran, who filed the Class Action Lawsuit in 1977, in which it governed the Department of Corrections from 1980-1998, and currently governs some of the psychiatric services of the D.O.C.

  • Highlands is a gem, but . . .

    Highlands University is one of the few universities in the country that has open enrollment. This commendable policy means second and third chances for future students anywhere. This also gives those who live in rural areas an opportunity for higher learning. Highlands also has quality education, top-notch professors and a tutorial program.

    However, Highlands has to be constructively criticized on a few fronts. Students have told me that for the most part, office employees in various departments do not answer the phones.

  • Co-op officials should open eyes

    As a member of Mora San Miguel Electric Co., I feel that the board members and manager should open their eyes and see what’s going on. Mr Alex Romero, you didn’t attempt to discuss with an employee about why he resigned. You lost a good employee because of all the BS that’s going on. You immediately offered the position to someone else. Mora-San Miguel Electric Co. does not need a manager who lets certain individuals take over. Step up, do your job. No te dejes que te cabrestellen.

  • It’s morally right to trust women

    Abortion is an issue that both societies and individuals deal with.  Societies make laws to regulate abortion, contraception and voluntary (and involuntary) sterilization. How much governments and religious organizations play in these matters changes over time. Individuals, on the other hand, face these choices consistently in their own, very personal lives.

  • Super has made ‘significant inroads’

    Contrary to the impression left by your editorial in “Thumbs,” Sept. 6, 2013, I believe that Mrs. (Sheryl) McNellis-Martinez has done a more than adequate job, considering the many problems she inherited from previous superintendents.

  • Probe of agency must continue

    We have been concerned as mental health professionals working with children about the quality of mental health services provided to children in our area by Team Builders Inc. These concerns have included:

  • Writer says views mischaracterized

    This is in regards to Marshall Poole’s recent comments to my personal views on abortion. I sense Mr. Poole is frustrated because he can’t counter the biological fact that a fertilized human egg is the earliest stage of a man or woman’s life. He also may be upset that I dare to express my views.

  • Protect our water from drilling

    In a speech marking the 50th anniversary of the historic march on Washington, President Obama said “Change does not come from Washington, but to Washington.”

    We agree. Last week Americans submitted more than one million comments urging President Obama to protect our national forests, parks, and the drinking water they provide from dirty gas drilling.

  • Mil gracias - Sept. 13, 2013

    A big “thank you” to the firefighters of the Guadalupita and Mora fire departments for their professionalism and their dedication to protecting the land, the buildings and the citizens. I watched last week as firefighters arrived at a lightning-caused fire and quickly and with skill put out the fire. We are fortunate to have citizens who give back to their community by volunteering for the local fire departments and to have necessary government funding for the equipment necessary to fight fires.
