  • Dulcey Amargo - Service with a smile

    It goes without saying that a good meal, served graciously, is worthy of a fair tip for the server, right?

    I, personally, keep that in mind each time I eat at a sit-down establishment.  There’s history behind my premise, as, in my high school years, I was a waitress at a number of eateries in my home town. Now, keep in mind, at that time, minimum wage was about 75 cents an hour. That meant that an eight-hour stint would garner one about $6.

    THUMBS UP! ANOTHER STATE CHAMPIONSHIP
    We were remiss last week in our failure to congratulate the Pecos High School cheer squad for capturing its third consecutive State Spirit Competition title on March 29 at the Pit. The squad and its coaches, Jessica and Michael Flores Jr., put in lots of hard work and time, and it’s great to see those investments paying off.

  • Writer supports L’Esperance

    Those of us who have signed this letter endorse and are asking our friends and neighbors in Ward 1 to vote for Oliver L’Esperance for city councilor. We believe Mr. L’Esperance is the kind of councilor we need, one who will listen to average families’ interests and who will work constructively with his colleagues in city government.

  • Compliments on another great event

    On Friday, March 28, La Fiesta de la Hispanidad celebrated its 20th anniversary. We would like to compliment Sara Harris, organizer and emcee, for her dedication to this event that takes place every year.

    Once again she set the tone for another wonderful performance, which was well attended. Our community is fortunate to have a person like Sara to organize this event and find volunteers to donate their time for this wonderful event.

  • Co-op members deserve the truth

    The members of the Mora-San Miguel Electric Cooperative need to know what is really happening within the “People’s Co-op.”

    I have worked with three different board trustee chairmen and am appalled by the way the meetings are being run. The electric cooperative board is to follow Roberts Rules of Order, and this was not happening to the full extent. The chairman was not acknowledging other board members’ motions or expressed concerns.

  • California student seeks information

    My name is Gabriela Magaña. I am a fifth grader at Napa Valley Language Academy in Napa, Calif.

    The reason I am writing is that my class is doing state reports and I have chosen your magnificent state of New Mexico. I would really like it if you posted my letter in your newspaper so that I may get the help I need for my report. What I need from you or your readers are pamphlets, postcards, souvenirs or anything else that would be useful.

  • Mil gracias - April 11, 2014

    During times of need it is comforting to know that our community, at all levels step up to the plate to benefit others.

    Our high school youths are no different as I witnessed an extremely dedicated sophomore, Mr. Aaron Campbell, give of his time and talent to ensure that his fellow Las Vegas FFA Chapter Parliamentary Procedure contestants were well prepared for their state competition.
