  • Dulcey Amargo: 'Ultima' a substantive play

    By Lupita Gonzales

     

    As I mentioned in a column a while back, I have sworn off sitting too long in front of the TV or the computer screen, but there are some sites I receive online that I follow for the fun of it. One of those is the Astrology  Astro Slam, which often puts me in my place.

     

    A couple of weeks ago, the slam told me that most people are boring, including me, and that I should do something exciting, like attending a play, or some such. 

     

  • Mil Gracias

    By Ida Sue Gonzales of Las Vegas

    Mil Gracias to Eddie King for allowing the Cub Scouts pack #60 to enter the Junior Vegas Bowl, after their community service trash clean up at the RHS Soccer Field. Also, mil gracias to Rob Larrañaga and the Wildlife Refuge for allowing the Cub Scouts to enjoy the Gallinas Nature Trail and watching the birds feed.

  • Mil Gracias

    From the David Romero family of Las Vegas:

    We want to express our appreciation for your generosity in support of the benefit spaghetti luncheon for Las Vegas City Councilman David Romero. It is great to see our community come together in support of a very important cause. 

    Everyone involved was incredibly helpful and allowed us to reach our goal. Your assistance means so much to us but even more to our uncle and his family. Thank you for all of us.

     

  • The myth of war

    By Don Hamilton, Ocate

    I am writing in response to Mr. Benito Duran’s letter regarding the proposed Cannon Air Force Base night flights over Northern New Mexico. I am certain that he believes these flights are necessary and that they will help keep us safe. However, I believe this perception is based upon a myth.

  • Scrutinize sites off campus

    Highlands University has been one of the leaders in setting up satellite campuses around the state. Currently, the school has seven off-campus sites — Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Roswell, Raton, Española, Farmington and Santa Fe.


    Now, legislative leaders looking for ways to cut the state budget have questioned the need for state universities to have so many branches. That’s a reasonable line of inquiry.

  • Mora sheriff should step aside

    Last week, the state police arrested a Mora County Sheriff’s Department transport officer who was found passed out drunk in his government vehicle along Interstate 25. His blood-alcohol level was .30, more than three times the state’s presumed level of intoxication.


    The department’s leader is ostensibly Sheriff Roy Cordova. But he is no longer the full-time sheriff. He recently got a full-time sheriff’s deputy’s job in Valencia County. So he’s working only part of the time in Mora County.

  • Work of Art: Don’t try this at home

    How many times have you been admonished: “Don’t try this at home”?           


    We read the notice most often on television, when someone demonstrates some kind of skill that might prove dangerous if someone goes ahead and attempts it, without proper supervision.        

  • Taxpayers aren’t to blame

    I can’t understand why we the taxpayers on the east side have to pay 30 percent more for the oversight or mistake that others are responsible for. My feeling is that everyone who is at fault should be sued and make them pay for it.
