    Las Vegas Mayor not using charter for intended purpose

    Voting for the mayor was a mistake

    I was wrong. Tonita Gurule-Giron is not the person I thought she was. My vote for her was a mistake. My donation to her campaign another bad move.

    Tonita will have her day in court if she is innocent. But the evidence of bribes, kickbacks, bid-rigging and all the rest, appears to be strong.

    It hurts to see that Las Vegas (one of America’s poor areas) is the victim of this criminality.  Our resources are scarce and must be used with ethics and thoughtfulness.

    Such a shame

    I was very disappointed to learn that the annual Fiesta Run will not take place this year as part of the Fiestas celebration. At a time when 2/3 of the country is either obese or overweight, when diabetes and heart disease are running rampant, and when so called “e-sports” (video games) are entering our educational institutions, this is no time to stop having such a positive, healthy event. Our kids need to see that kind of modeling and to participate in and help celebrate a healthy, active lifestyle.

    Feeding the hungry

    Comedor Soup Kitchen has been serving the community of Las Vegas for 10 years.

    We currently offer two meals a week, and food pantry bag handouts at each meal at the Our Lady of Sorrows Parish Hall. We can use some help with the triumvirate of all service organizations- food, money and volunteers.

    Piling on

    “Piling on” — an illegal move in football when a ball carrier, having been tackled, several players on the opposing team jump on him, possibly hoping he will fumble the ball and one of them will get it.

    That is exactly what is happening in the run-up to the 2020 presidential election.  Every Democratic politician who ever thought he/she had a remote chance of being President will have declared — or  still might declare — his/her candidacy.

    Women, not horses

    Brood mares! American women will soon have no more personal rights than female horses on breeding farms.
    And they will receive, on average, far less medical care during pregnancy and after birth than the pampered creatures that pop out babies worth thousands of dollars for their owners.

    Vote for Teresa

    Teresa Leger Fernandez recently announced her candidacy for New Mexico’s 3rd Congressional District to enthusiastic supporters in her home town of Las Vegas.

    Her deep understanding of Northern New Mexico  and extensive career make her the most qualified candidate for the open seat.

    Teresa is a proud daughter of Northern New Mexico.  Her mother, Manuelita Atocha Lucero (Mela) was a bilingual education pioneer and her father, Ray Leger, a state senator and educator.

    Finding great uncle

    In researching my mother’s family tree, I have run into a brick wall searching for an uncle of hers named Edward Charles Wolters. I’m hoping some of your readers would be able to help me with information or even be related to him.
