Letters

  • Extremes are nonproductive

    We have read your published letters from Carrol Pearson and Frank Splendoria about solitary confinement. Mr. Splendoria mentioned the recent murders in Aurora, Colo., by one James Holmes. These were probably far worse than the Columbine murders some years ago. These things certainly ought not to be.

  • Wannabe kisser sincere in efforts

    It  seems as though the campaign to win the right to Kiss That Pig is heating up. This is a good thing for as I mentioned in my letter last week my motto is, “Remember, no matter who puckers for that pig, Samaritan House wins!”

    Instead of making empty promises and pretending to enjoy kissing that pig, as my opponent Tom McDonald has mentioned, I am actually out there pounding the pavement and doing the job of true fundraising.

  • Pig caller endorses Krall

    I have been reading with interest, the preparation for kissing the pig.

    I was born in Nebraska (a state not a stranger to pigs), but have lived extensively on farms in Iowa and Arkansas. I believe this leaves me qualified to weigh in on the important matter of the pig kissing contest.

    My jobs on the farms were always caring for all livestock. In Arkansas, I used to ride a horse to free range with our cattle and goats grazed and hogs (both wild and tame) abounded, returning our livestock to the farm.

  • Mil Gracias - August 6, 2012

    This letter is written to thank members of the community who have helped the Tree Board of the City to upgrade the condition of the city parks.

  • Commendations to council, mayor

    I want to express my support for the mayor and councilors who, I believe, are truly moving in a positive direction to help make Las Vegas a better place in which to live.

  • Getting richer on Americans’ backs

    Where are the jobs?

  • Suggestions for emergencies

    I recently had a medical emergency at my house and I’ll have to admit that, despite living in the country, the response time was fair.

    I know we have good EMTs on board right now, but Mora County is pretty spread out, and there is always room for improvement.

    I know I’m not in office anymore, but what happens in Mora County has a big effect on me and all the citizens. I have a few suggestions that could very well help to save lives.

  • Animal Shelter people deserve medals

    The people who work at the Animal Shelter should receive gold medals for  helping me. (Recently, on a) Sunday at about 1:30 p.m., my Bretta died at  almost 13 years. She weighed about 100 pounds, a Bouviers.

    I want to thank two of my neighbors for helping me to get her prepared and I especially want to thank the three people at the Animal Shelter who helped me put her into three large plastic bags so we could put her in a freezer. The crematorium is pending.

    It seems the City needs to pay for some kind of  of gas valve. What’s the problem?

  • An endorsement for pig-kisser

    We, the God-fearing citizens of Las Vegas, N.M., in order to provide for the common good, save our dignity, prevent insanity and civil disobedience, hereby endorse Tom McDonald for pig kisser of our community. He is just such a ham.

    We believe that Mr. McDonald (not Ronald) is most deserving of the honor of showing our community that, in many instances, pigs are people, too. We deal with pigs every day (no pun intended, Chief Montaño). No offense, Honey. ...

  • State conference a huge success

    The daunting task of hosting the 76th annual conference of the New Mexico Association of Counties was pulled off without a hitch by San Miguel County.

    The statewide event, which attracts more than 500 county and state officials and employees from all 33 counties, was held in Las Vegas the week of June 18. Also in attendance were many state officials and employees, and professional service providers and government vendors from throughout New Mexico and surrounding states.
