  • Mil Gracias

    On Aug. 28, the Ride To Pride Jr Rodeo Club held its awards finals for this season’s junior rodeo series. The contestants ranged from lead-line ages to 17 years old and competed in a variety of speed and stock events.

    We would like to thank and congratulate our contestants for their participation and awards standings. Our 2011 all-around saddle champions are: Jacen Montoya, Grace Flitner, Isaac Montoya and Chantel Sena. Thanks to our sponsors, the club was able to give awards and prizes to all 32 year-end contestants.

  • Invaluable service to mother-in-law

    I want to share with the community the invaluable service that was provided to my mother-in-law, Clara Rodgers, during her stay at Alta Vista Regional Hospital. Dedication and outstanding care were provided not only to Clara, but to every family member who stayed by her side.

  • Concerns were about the facility

    I am writing in response to the Optic article, “Proposed Facility Worries Neighbors.”

    The story did not convey at all what happened at the Planning and Zoning Commission hearings. The opening line of the article leads readers to believe that the neighbors who spoke up were concerned about the “types of residents” who might move in, as if the residents themselves are the problem.

  • Story gave wrong impression

    I was in attendance at two recent city Board of Adjustment/Planning and Zoning Commission public hearings concerning the issue of a proposed assisted-living facility on Fourth Street in a residential neighborhood.

  • Rich are paying their ‘fair share’

  • ‘Job well done,’ Henry Sanchez

    I was fortunate to have served four good years of my life, as a public servant with the City of Las Vegas with my friend Mayor Henry O. Sanchez.

  • Team Cutters event successful

    Team Cutters would like to thank everyone who came out on Saturday, Aug. 13, for our car and motorcycle show. We are proud to announce that we had 113 registered vehicles! We would also like to thank all of the Rockabilly girls/ladies who entered the contest. All were given the opportunity to participate in the Team Cutters Calendar.

  • Thoughts on Mora issues

    I would like to follow up on Alex Montoya’s letter to the editor (published Sept. 9) about the Help New Mexico office in Mora County.

    As a prior elected official, I can truly say, that the Help office is one of the programs that has been of much help, and proved to be effective to those less fortunate, who are not lazy, but need a shove in the right direction. These people who go to the Help office are the same people who cast their votes on election day. So be very careful with labels. As the saying goes, “There (but for) the grace of God go I.”

  • Mil Gracias

    On behalf of the family of the late Luciano Tapia, we would like to give thanks to all his friends and relatives for being there in our time of grief.

    Thanks to Gonzales Funeral and the staff at Our Lady of Sorrows church for all their help.

    Mil gracias, Father Brasher, for the deserving praise you gave our brother and also for the beautiful services.

    God bless all of you!

  • Tracing claim to its source

    In her Sept. 19 letter to the Optic, Annette Franklin claims that “Who among these people, know Obamacare will soon allow government confiscation of … financial accounts?” She claims she gets information from non-partisan sources, yet an Internet search of that charge turned up references to a pass-around, far right e-mail from several years ago, before the healthcare legislation had even been finalized and passed.
