    Educator: Throw the book at Trujillo
    After reading all the counts against Charles Trujillo, I hope that every educator is as angry as I am!
    Myself, as well as many of my peer educators, worked our tails off and sacrificed to earn our licenses and certifications! We can feel good about ourselves because we did.
    To hear about all the falsified licenses and certifications really makes me sick!
    I hope they throw the book at him!

  • Just a Thought: Walk across the street and listen

    By Rick Kraft

    We live in difficult times.

    On one side of the street is a highly emotional mob of people with slogan-filled signs. They deeply believe in their cause. Collectively, they chant in unison. They are still contained but are real close to exploding out of control.

    The Marietta Times of Ohio on the Zika virus (Aug. 5):
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advisory that pregnant women should stay out of a section of Miami is not the most disturbing news about the Zika virus this week.

    THUMBS DOWN! CHASE ENDS WITH GUNFIRE
    A 52-year -old man is facing multiple felonies after he allegedly carjacked someone near San Felipe casino and then led a state police officer on a chase on northbound Interstate 25. William Wilson was shot by the officer in San Miguel County. His gunshot wound isn’t life-threatening. It’s a blessing that no one else was injured or killed. Wilson deserves his day in court, but if he is found guilty, the judge presiding over his case should throw the book at him.

  • Dispatch New Mexico - Gary Johnson’s presidential bid gaining momentum

    Gary Johnson’s 15 minutes of fame has finally arrived.

    The former New Mexico governor and current Libertarian Party candidate for president is getting some attention by the national media as an alternative to Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Polls are showing, and have been for some time now, that the majority of Americans don’t like Clinton or Trump, and Johnson’s subtle but important rise in the polls suggests that he, more so than Green Party candidate Jill Stein, is a legitimate third choice.

  • Death with dignity gaining favor

    Editor’s note: The following editorial is from The Columbia (Missouri) Daily Tribune and was first published on Aug. 8.

    California has become the fourth state in the union to pass a law allowing assisted suicide for the terminally ill. Since 1997, when the concept was first codified in Oregon state law, it has become known as “aid in dying” and many people have traveled there to take advantage of the opportunity.
