Letters

  • Who is trying to deceive whom?

    This letter is in response to Frank Splendoria’s letter in the Optic Sept. 13th.

    I have no interest in arguing with you about your abortion beliefs simply because I disagree with you (which I do). You can — and will — believe whatever you want. However, it is quite clear that you advocate for your religious views being made the law for everyone. You accuse me of trying to deceive readers about your position. I don’t think so. I think anyone reading your letters knows your views on abortion without any misdirection from me.

  • Writer: Trust but also verify

    In May I had a routine colonoscopy screening at Alta Vista Regional Hospital. Everyone involved was very kind, friendly and professional. I was impressed and very well-satisfied — until I received the bill.

  • Highlands is a gem, no buts

    I would like to say a few words in defense of the office workers about whom it has been said “do not answer their phones.”

    I’m recently retired after working the ITS Help Desk at New Mexico Highlands University for many years. Chaotic is the only way to describe the first two weeks of a new semester.

  • Co-op official responds to letter

    In response to “Co-op Officials should open eyes,” it is always disappointing when an employee tenders a resignation.

  • Writer: Abortion affects another life

    Ms. (Joan) Krohn’s letter is an example of the mostly successful efforts of the pro-abortion folks to gloss over the basic nature of the procedure and paint the anti-abortion folks as narrow-minded, mean-spirited people who are focused on punishing “the sluts” who seek abortion.

  • Enjoyed Bean Day celebration

    My 6-year-old granddaughter attended Bean Day in Wagon Mound for the first time. She goes to church with me so we were both impressed with the float that had a giant image of our Lady of Guadalupe on it adorned with roses. The Mariachis looked so handsome all dressed in black and their music was very relaxing.

  • 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.
