Today's Opinions

  • Thoughts on anti-tethering law

    Dogs housed in fenced yards can pose public heath risks, so before mandating the “anti-tethering law” please consider the following.

    1. A chain link fence will not prevent a curious child/person from sticking their hands through the fence and possibly being bitten. Then the dog owner would more than likely be sued.

  • Supports the new ordinance

    I support the anti-tethering legislation. I  moved to Las Vegas seven years ago for school, and have since then made this  town my home. I bought a house, I work here, I vote here, and I do my part of  community service.

    I also have a dog and it breaks my heart to see other  people’s dogs tied up constantly with no stimulation, attention, or companionship. I’m so proud of my town for passing this law.

  • ‘A crime against our pets’

    About two weeks ago, I had an emergency situation, with one of my pets, at home, at approximately 11:30 p.m. In my panic, while trying to tend to my pet, I called all three of our local vets, all three of which had their cell phone numbers on messages for “after-hour emergencies.” I called all three cell phones to no avail. I was told by the answering service of one vet, to take my pet to Santa Fe to the emergency pet hospital.  That would have been a great  idea, if I didn’t live nearly an hour away.

  • Directory helps kids get support

    Happy Administrative Professionals Day! To celebrate the day this April 25, the New Mexico New Hires Directory would like to thank payroll professionals for their critical role in making sure that children receive the financial support they deserve.

  • Poorer, yes, because of the government

    On April 2, a letter to the editor was comprised of generalities accusing the GOP as compassionless for not taxing the rich, which causes the poor to get poorer.

    It is not a simple matter of bad Republican and good liberals.

    Critical in the equation is the $14 trillion debt incurred by Democrats within the last three years. High debt devalues the dollar and this causes inflation.

  • Mil Gracias - April 20, 2012

    The youth group of the Mora Christian Center would like to sincerely thank every person who purchased or donated to the raffle ticket fundraising for the giant Easter basket.

    The drawing was held on Friday, April 6, and the winner of the basket was Orlando Roybal of Mora. The proceeds of the raffle ticket sales go to help the youth attend a Teen Boot Camp to be held in July.

  • Process vs. result

    When it comes to the process the Las Vegas City Schools District used to find a superintendent, it was a disaster. And now, with the impending hiring of interim superintendent Sheryl McNellis-Martinez to the permanent position, East’s school board has opted to dump the process and go strictly with the results it likes.

    Let’s hope it pays off in the long run.
