    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:

    Farmers Market working hard
    Mr. Rock Ulibarri is known for his just and fair ways in our community. I’m disappointed that he relied on misinformation about the Tri-County Farmers Market in his recent letter (Sept. 19). I’m a former board member of the Tri-County Farmers Market as well as a vender and a customer. I hope I can clarify the issues that Mr. Ulibarri brought forth in his letter.

    Ridiculous excuse
    I had to chuckle and read the article twice about the West Las Vegas homecoming activities being changed and one board member insinuating that it had anything to do with Title IX.

    Tax hike should have gone to voters
    I read your “Spend It Wisely” editorial this morning, and it has me a bit upset. We are going to be forced to pay a higher taxes that we are not allowed to vote on? Since when do the people not have the right to vote on whether or not our taxes are increased?

    In addition to paying more taxes, it says the moneys are going to be spent on road repairs. This would be fine if the county was doing the job correctly.
