Letters

  • Inalienable rights to freedom

    Four years ago, here in Mora County, we were “awakened” by the sound of greed lapping at our doorsteps. “Land men” came to our peaceful, pristine, agricultural community seeking mineral leases to drill for oil and natural gas.  

  • Spending can take your breath away

    Congratulations on digging up the information on the West Las Vegas trip to the Sin City. Government spending takes your breath away sometimes.

    This is further proof that newspapers are desperately needed.

  • Story on poll came up short

    I certainly agree with the sentiments reported in the admittedly “unscientific” poll taken at the People’s Faire (story Aug. 29, “Poll: Locals favor military cuts”), about cutting the military budget and waste.

  • Including disorder wrong of the Optic

  • Cheney’s torture illegal and immoral

    On Tuesday the memoir of former Vice President Dick Cheney was released. He continues to support the harsh interrogation methods used under the Bush government, including waterboarding, sleep deprivation, long-term isolation, stress positions, and extremes of heat and cold. He will be interviewed on every major television station and will claim that the techniques saved lives, and that no other methods would have produced the same results.

  • Mil Gracias

    On behalf of the board and the children of La Plaza Little League, we would like to thanks the following sponsors for their continued support, and dedication to the community.

    First of all God as the season (dedicated to Fabian Trujillo and Joey Portillo) went on without any major incidents or accidents!

  • Mil Gracias

    I played on the 2011 Las Vegas Little League 9-10 year old boys All Star team. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the following businesses and families who graciously contributed  monetary donations for my travel expenses to the district tournament in Taos and the state tournament in Roswell.

  • Mil Gracias

    We would like to thank all our family, friends and neighbors for raising money for medical bills for Edward Fernandez from Cleveland, who is battling cancer. God bless you all.

  • Commendations to good teachers

    Another academic year begins this week in Las Vegas, reminding me of a letter that I intended to write a few months ago, but never did. It goes like this:

  • ‘Doomsday’ not due to ‘community’

    “Planning for doomsday” was the headline. Sounds to me like planning doomsday. Water, one of three things needed to stay alive, is in short supply. The other two is food and oxygen. Everyone knows what the problem is but no one has the courage to do anything about it. Councils and mayors past did not want to be the ones to spend the required money to get it fixed and the ones in power seem to be waiting for the next election.
