Letters

  • Education is the reason for schools

    When a few experts get together and develop a possible plan for a new unified school district, things might move beyond the talking stage.

  • Water comes before economy

    To the mayor and councilors:

    Let me point out some realities. Most if not all of you know these realities already — so, in part, I may be speaking to those who wish to occupy your seats after next month. I hope they take note.

  • Correction

    In last Friday’s Optic, the wrong “signature” followed the letter headlined “Guantanamo and its legacy.”

    Judy Bennett of Rociada, not Judy Smith, wrote the letter.

  • Work out the differences

    I’m sorry to hear that the residents of Chacon in Mora County, are having problems with La Jicarita Telephone Co. It has been my experience over the years that La Jicarita is very professional when it comes to business and I’m sure they will find another place to put the cell towers and other equipment necessary to give the people of Chacon better service.

  • Who should, shouldn’t lead

    Looks like the city charter will be put to the challenge. With so many running, it is bound to be a runoff. The candidates’ reasons for running are varied and say a lot about them.

  • Guantanamo and its legacy

    I appreciated Robert Pearson’s letter to the Optic of Jan. 13, which highlighted the legal quagmire at the Guantanamo Detention facility.

    U.S. citizens should be very concerned that our country has acquired some of the undesirable characteristics of military dictatorships. Our constitution insists on innocence until proven guilty, speedy and fair trials according to established rules of due process, and respect for the human rights of everyone, including prisoners, even when proven guilty.

  • Let’s pass the bill

    Our New Mexico Faith Communities and the Legislature :

  • Letters to the Editor

    Remembering diversity

    Regarding Work of Art, “That fourth floor,“ of Jan. 4:
    There were no Mexicans on the fourth floor where I grew up. No buildings were that tall. There were indeed countless Mexicans in the fields and orchards, and I was right there with them. Chopping sugar beets, picking apples, tomatoes, peaches, pears, black berries, quinces, crab apples and etc. I dreaded working in the endless rows next to a Mexican lady. She would arrive at the noon time lunch truck long before me. And the boss noticed.

  • Mil Gracias - Jan. 9, 2012

    On behalf of  Luna Community College SkillsUSA, I would like to thank the New Mexico National Guard 720 Unit for the use of their facilities.  

    Their continued support of SkillsUSA, Luna Community College and the community is greatly appreciated.

    We would like to express our sincere appreciation to Vida Encantada Rehabilitation and Nursing Center and their excellent staff for opening the Memory Care Unit this fall.

  • A memorable Christmas

    This Christmas holiday was the most memorable of all. First of all, I would like to say “thank you” to everyone who went out of their way to make a local family here in Las Vegas have a very Merry Christmas.

    My husband had called me at home one evening to say that the Fire Department was passing out ham dinners to families in need and did I know of such a family. I looked on my phone list of children that we see in the clinic and called the first family I saw.
