  • Teacher evaluation system is flawed

    I am writing in regard to the (Associated Press) article discussing a new teacher evaluation system in New Mexico. If the article is accurate, the system needs to be reconsidered for the simple fact that the evaluation of anyone is not an isolated activity but rather part of a process.

  • Nuestra Historia: Businessmen led East Las Vegas until merger

    The idea of merging East and West Las Vegas as one combined municipality did not begin (in contemporary history) until about 1965. Before that year, consolidation did not enter the social or political discourse of the day, as both towns simply trudged along separately — each almost oblivious of the other.

  • Support your Kiss a Pig candidate

    The San Miguel/Mora County Fair Association would like to thank the participants in the Kiss A Pig Contest which is held in July and August and will end on Aug. 10 when one of our lucky contestants who earns the most money will kiss a champion pig at the County Fair.

    We hope all will receive a lot of votes as this will enable the 4-H and FFA youth to have a successful county fair. The youth exhibit indoor projects as well as the animals in the fair barns and pens.

  • Rock on, Rough Riders

    I would like to say a big Thank You to Mike and Benito and all the committee members of the Rough Riders Motorcycle group for the courtesies and kindness extended to me at Saturday’s rally and rodeo. I am 75 years young and enjoyed the rally, as I have every year.

    To the few that complain and say it’s too noisy, I say it’s no more disturbing than the diesel pickup trucks that drive our city streets every day .... and yet you complain about three days out of 365.

  • Rally benefits our community
  • Don’t stereotype motorcyclists

    Obviously John Gamertsfelder is not a fan of motorcycle riders. I do, however, support the Rough Rider Rally and am appreciative of the many people who graciously donate their time to put the event together. I attend numerous rallies and I think our rally ranks right up there as far as activities and entertainment. I disagree with (Gamertsfelder’s) statement that “many Vegeños” leave town during the rally. I saw a large number of local people at the rally this year and not all are motorcycle riders.

  • Motorcyclist offended by letter

    I Just finished reading Mr. Gamertsfelder’s lengthy letter regarding the Rough Rider Rally and had to respond. First off I take exception to being called a “Bandit” as he referred to motorcycle riders. I am a professional person and love to ride in the back of my husband’s Harley. My husband is a disabled vet and rightly so this earned Mr. Gamertsfelder a right to complain. However, given this rally is three days out of 365, maybe this should be when he should schedule a much-needed vacation instead of sitting at his desk writing letters.
