  • Pleasant and professional

    Hate to see David Giuliani leave. I wish you many blessings and good luck in your future. I know that you will do well, as you always have.

    Most of all I want to thank you for always being there when we needed to communicate with the public on behalf of the VFW Ladies Auxiliary of Mora. I hope your successor will be just as pleasant and professional.

    I thank you also for the information given to the public on behalf of St. Gertrude’s Church functions in Mora.

    Hasta luego y vaya Con Dios.

    Odilia Cantrell

  • Good news from Alta Vista

    I happened to be a patient all last week at Alta Vista Regional Hospital. On Friday evening, a very nice woman came into my room and introduced herself as Maridel Acosta, the new CEO at the hospital.

    She spent more than an hour talking with me about everything from the history of Las Vegas to Puerto Rican food to her great willingness to join this community to encourage Compassion (with a capital C) in our healthcare facilities here.

  • ‘Demons’ still not brought to justice

    It has been three years that our children Damian and Stephanie were brutally taken from us.This is the most horrific act of evil that could happen to anyone! Damian and Steph, were wonderful kids inside and out, with big hearts, souls, big goals and a very bright future. Our children, full of life! How could this insane act of evil have happened?

    These demons have not been brought to justice yet and we the families are begging for anyone that has any information. Please come forward and help put them away and keep this from happening again.

  • Politics: You get what you pay for

    The mid-term “revulsion election” has come and gone, exacting widespread retribution on both the innocent and the impure.    

  • Don’t judge Cordova harshly

    Mora County will soon have a new sheriff and I’m sure he will do good. He was a deputy when I was on the commission.

    The outgoing sheriff, it seems, has made some mistakes, as we all have, because we are human. The only perfect ones are six feet under because, of course, they can’t make mistakes anymore.

  • Breakdown turned out OK

    This is our “on-the-road-again” story thanks to an automotive mechanic from Las Vegas, N.M.:

    Our 187,500 mileage Chrysler 1994 van has been a long-time family member since we purchased it 16 years ago, and this past November, it joined us on our weeklong car camping trip in northeastern New Mexico. Unfortunately on Sunday (the last day of our vacation), while traveling back to Denver we started having intermittent hesitation problems requiring us to be towed back to Santa Fe for a fuel filter replacement.

  • Educators must have adequate tools

    I graduated from Robertson in 1967 at the same time Don Pace did.

    Great to see that a fellow classmate became a reporter for the Optic.

    I read the article that pertained to the Las Vegas Public Schools regarding new adoptions and the lack of follow-through from district management in making sure all teachers and students had access to the curriculum at the beginning of the new school year.

  • Mil Gracias

    I would like to take this time to thank everyone who has helped me. It’s time to go to San Diego!

    Once again, the community of Las Vegas has come through. Once again, you have shown why the people of Las Vegas and surrounding areas can always be called on during a time of need. “Toda la jente” y “familia.”

    Thank you, Las Vegas, Mora and all those surrounding areas that have come together to help me. You have made me believe that people do care and will help when you are at your lowest. Thank you and God bless!

  • 3-mile setback is a protection

    The wind industry’s standard setback of 1500 feet is only based on the height and structure of the tower in case of “blade throw.”

    One turbine emits at its source about 97 decibels several hundred feet above the ground. This is as loud as a DC-9 aircraft. Multiply this by how many turbines are in a wind farm.

    The revised ordinance introduces this noise as a reason for its setback; that the normal outdoor background sound level of a proposed site be the starting point for determining the distance between one turbine and a home.

  • Ordinance will kill wind farms

    On Tuesday, Dec. 14, at 1:30 p.m., the San Miguel County commissioners will vote on an ordinance to govern wind farms in the county. As the ordinance now stands, it will essentially kill all wind farm development in the county.
