Today's Opinions

  • Transplanted radicals in town

    I recently heard that an average of 10 people a month are moving out of Las  Vegas.

    Unfortunately most of these people are native Las Vegans who cannot  earn a living.

  • Time to say no to drilling interests

    An open letter to the San Miguel County Commission:

    You are probably aware that 1 million to 8 million gallons of water is needed to frack one gas well one time, and they normally require more than one fracking effort to get the gas.

  • Much worse than what Mathis did

    I can name many a former judge, elected officials, city and county administrators, school teachers, board members, school administrators, former DA’s, several police officers, county jail guards and school coaches who have done far worse than Judge Mathis. The only difference is Judge Mathis didn’t cry, hire attorneys or engage in any cover-up, nor did he try to use political influence to wittle out of “Se porto como un hombre. Y se las trago.”

  • Why tolerate the act of spitting?

    Hundreds, if not thousands, of times a day in public places around the city, countless citizens, primarily men, openly [flout] a city ordinance — in other words, the law — and rudely spit, blind to social and health implications of such selfishly ignorant displays.

    Without pride or self restraint, there is no way society will thrive. What a pity.

    As a phenomenon I don’t know when spitting became acceptable. But once ensconced, it quickly became a big hit with the multitude of degradations assaulting a structure lost in a daze.

  • Mil Gracias - March 15, 2013

    First Born of Northern New Mexico would like to thank the community for the support we received at our recent Mardi Gras Gala Event. We plan to make this an annual event and the overwhelming support of businesses and individuals made a fun and productive evening.  

  • Nuestra Historia - Martinez and Veeder outfoxed HU opponents

    As the 13th session of the Territorial legislature opened in January 1893, education was foremost on the minds of many New Mexicans.

  • Our Watershed - The people of the Gallinas Canyon

    Editor’s note: This is the third in a series running over several consecutive Fridays. It is written by members of the Hermit’s Peak Watershed Alliance, which seeks to foster land stewardship in the Gallinas, Sapello and Tecolote watersheds.

    Although it has changed through the years, a deep relationship with the land has been felt by the residents and visitors of the Gallinas Canyon. The stories are rich and varied, with many of them rooted in the land, water, fish and wildlife that have been so important to those with a history in the Gallinas Watershed.

  • No more tethering

    After a year, the city of Las Vegas is ready to mount a campaign of sorts — to get dogs off their leashes while still properly controlled. And so far, we like the approach the city is taking.
