Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Ready to work with new colleagues

    First and foremost I want to thank each and everyone who came out to vote during the election for Luna Community College Precinct 6 trustee. I need to especially thank those individuals who went out and campaigned for me.

  • LETTER: Fifth councilor not the solution

    In response to the idea of a fifth council member being suggested by Cruz Roybal and Morris Madrid, may I remind them that the council already has a fifth member, in the personage of his honor the mayor.  His job is to break those tie votes and he does represent the entire town.

    If a fifth council member slot is created, either as a councilor-at-large or as a representative of a fifth ward, the mayor’s position then becomes one of moderator.  

  • LETTER: Time to put horse before the cart

    There is a time to start putting the cart where it goes.

  • WORK OF ART: ‘Gateau’ doesn’t mean ‘cat’

    To what lengths will some people go to connect with their roots? And what means enable them to do so?

    These questions arise in the case of Florence Bordj and her mother, Therese Bonnafous Bordj, from France but now living in Tahiti. They flew to the states to be close to the haunts of their great-grand-uncle and grand-uncle, respectively, Msgr. Adrien Rabeyrolle, the pastor of Immaculate Conception church.

  • LETTER: Mora federation says congratulations

    The Mora Federation of School Employees would like to extend congratulations to the winning candidates, Arthur Romero and Joseph Griego, to the Mora Independent School Board. We look forward to a prosperous working relationship.

  • COLUMN: Octuplets? Enough already

    For many of my grandparents’ generation, the Biblical words, “Be fruitful and multiply,” were more of a command than a suggestion.

    Grandma and Grandpa Medina complied, delivering 16 children, of which my mother Marie was the oldest daughter. Six remain, most in their nineties, and most of the others lived into that decade as well. And a few of them procreated so efficiently that in the ‘50s it was fairly safe to tell people, “I’m related to half of Santa Fe. If it’s a Medina, there’s a good chance it’s a cousin.”

  • LETTER: Misdirecting the city’s energies

    Eight to four, four to five, and the next request will be five to seven. Shortly, the city will again be paying for more dead wood. Enough is enough. What city councilors want is to eliminate the mayors vote. Why don’t they just say it.

  • LETTER: Thanks for vote, no matter the outcome

    I wish to thank the voters of our service area for participating in this election. The results provide the next step in our direction at Luna Community College. Regardless of the outcome, I will continue to do everything possible to provide the best educational environment possible for our students and staff.
