  • Cultural sustainability

    “Cultural sustainability”: renewing and maintaining human cultures that create positive enduring relationships. “Sustainability” encompasses more than our Earth, caring for our earth is important. Social, cultural and economic sustainability are very important too.

  • Courthouse ghost haunting Mora?

    Joe Vigil (Channel 4) did a good job investigating the new courthouse building in Mora County and reporting, but I personally feel that the ghost that lived in the old courthouse is coming back to haunt for having destroyed his home. Without need.

  • Students were attentive

    To Ms. Brenda Ortega, James Madison Scholar at Robertson High School:

    Just a short note to express our gratitude for inviting us to share some time with your civic and history students We are proud to have been part of the NMHU student movement of the ’60s and to share our experiences with your students.

  • Recognize the union

    The (Feb. 9) article on the local hospital was interesting. But why does the management not recognize the union? The workers voted for union representation and have been supported by the community.

    Why must the hospital wait until it is required by the government to negotiate with the workers?

  • VFD should get Peck back

    A while back, I read a letter to the editor thanking all the people who fought the fire when the Tony Apodaca residence burned in the Gascon Valley. I wanted to echo that thanks. As bad as it was, I know it could have been a lot worse if the high winds had carried that fire down the valley.

  • Mil Gracias

    Thank you to the Volunteer Fire Departments from Rainsville, Mora, and Golondrinas and to our neighbors for their prompt response to the Rainsville fire on Jan. 28.  

    Their prompt response prevented what could have been a very different outcome. Individuals such as these are true assets to our communities and to Mora County.

  • Grateful for another term

    Allow me to express my heartfelt gratitude to the voters of the Mora Independent School District for electing me to an unprecedented fifth term to the Board of Education. It has been an honor, a privilege and a joy to serve in this capacity for 16 years and I will continue to do my best to validate those who believe in my capabilities and who have entrusted me with this awesome responsibility.

  • Praise for the art scene in Las Vegas

    Recently I had the opportunity to look through the Guia de los Artistas. I was highly impressed with, one, the quality of the guide itself and, two, the level of talent displayed by the artists inside.

    It’s good to know there is such a vibrant art scene with my neighbors to the east. Keep up the good work!

  • Mora commission making progress

    I attended the second Mora County Commission meeting of the new administration on Jan. 11.  I was very impressed by the tone of openness, transparency and professionalism that was set by the new commission composed of Paula Garcia, chair, John Olivas and incumbent Laudente Quintana.

    The meeting room was full to overflowing and the citizens were able to witness and participate in an extended morning and afternoon session that covered a lot of urgent and important topics, including a presentation by state Rep. Thomas Garcia.
