Today's Opinions

  • Writer: Abortion affects another life

    Ms. (Joan) Krohn’s letter is an example of the mostly successful efforts of the pro-abortion folks to gloss over the basic nature of the procedure and paint the anti-abortion folks as narrow-minded, mean-spirited people who are focused on punishing “the sluts” who seek abortion.

  • Enjoyed Bean Day celebration

    My 6-year-old granddaughter attended Bean Day in Wagon Mound for the first time. She goes to church with me so we were both impressed with the float that had a giant image of our Lady of Guadalupe on it adorned with roses. The Mariachis looked so handsome all dressed in black and their music was very relaxing.

  • Nuestra Historia: Encinias, Martinez & King nixed consolidation

    In March 1967, when the House of Representatives voted on Sen. Junio Lopez’ bill to consolidate East and West Las Vegas, the lower chamber deadlocked 34 to 34, and Speaker of the House Bruce King would break the tie.

    Already considering a run for governor, King wanted to ruffle as few feathers as possible in Las Vegas, and his tie-breaking vote was against consolidation. (Three years later, King was elected New Mexico’s 23rd governor, defeating then Albuquerque City Commission Chairman Pete Domenici.)

  • Editorial Roundup: Newspaper opinions from around the nation - Sept. 27, 2013

    Lansing State Journal on learning from Detroit’s mistakes (Sept. 18):
    Months into Detroit’s bankruptcy, leaders of other Michigan cities have had time to contemplate the stunning implications for their own communities.
    Surely no other city could fall as spectacularly as Detroit has done. As the state’s largest city, the size and scope of Detroit’s finances dwarf those of others, so it’s likely no other Michigan city will face an $8 billion deficit.

  • Gary King is right

    Gov. Susana Martinez and Attorney General Gary King are at odds over who should have final say on whether same-sex marriages are legal in New Mexico.

    Martinez, who personally believes that marriage should be between a man and a woman, says voters should decide the issue through a constitutional amendment. King, a Democrat, argues that the courts should decide the matter since it is a civil rights issue.

    We agree with King.

  • Work of Art — What’s the big deal?

    We stopped at a fast-food place where, when you buy a burger, you get to put the mustard and ketchup on yourself. We also bought a side salad and got to pour the French vignette dressing on ourselves.

    It was one of those days, when we could smell fall in the air and the change in temperature and climate made us want to go out for a snack rather than cook at home. I guess you could say we were out to butter our own nests.

  • Yet another standoff

    Here we go again.

    With seven days left before the end of the federal fiscal year, the politicians in Washington, D.C., are once again playing Russian Roulette with the economy.

    In order to avert a government shutdown, Congress and President Obama must sign off on a budget. Seems simple enough, right?
