  • It’s morally right to trust women

    Abortion is an issue that both societies and individuals deal with.  Societies make laws to regulate abortion, contraception and voluntary (and involuntary) sterilization. How much governments and religious organizations play in these matters changes over time. Individuals, on the other hand, face these choices consistently in their own, very personal lives.

    THUMBS UP! TIRES FINALLY REMOVED
    We commend State Land Commissioner Ray Powell and his staff for the job they did in ensuring that a massive tire dump 10 miles southeast of Wagon Mound was cleaned up. The tires were dumped into an arroyo on state trust lands, posing a major environmental hazard. The State Land Office and New Mexico Environment Department went after the entities responsible, forcing them to clean up the mess at their own expense. They also paid a $30,000 fine.

He also may be upset that I dare to express my views.

  • Protect our water from drilling

    In a speech marking the 50th anniversary of the historic march on Washington, President Obama said “Change does not come from Washington, but to Washington.”

    We agree. Last week Americans submitted more than one million comments urging President Obama to protect our national forests, parks, and the drinking water they provide from dirty gas drilling.

  • Mil gracias - Sept. 13, 2013

    A big “thank you” to the firefighters of the Guadalupita and Mora fire departments for their professionalism and their dedication to protecting the land, the buildings and the citizens. I watched last week as firefighters arrived at a lightning-caused fire and quickly and with skill put out the fire. We are fortunate to have citizens who give back to their community by volunteering for the local fire departments and to have necessary government funding for the equipment necessary to fight fires.
