    Self-evident storms
    Every day, Americans struggle against one or both natural and man-made disasters. President Trump personifies not one, but both; natural in the pathological sense, because his behavior, presumably outside his control, defies normality, and in the man-made sense, because he chooses bigotry, offensive sexual behavior, and ignorance, as a way of life.

    Lethal stupidity
    What is happening to all the dignity, self-respect and common sense of the peoples of the U.S. when they are led by a group whose skills and knowledge seem to have sunk to the level of entering kindergarteners? “My button’s bigger than his button,” chants the mighty leader of the nation! This is incredible!

    These are nuclear weapons that we are playing with here. The rest of the world weeps and gasps in horror to see a county sinking so dangerously low.

    No second boss needed
    The people of San Miguel County need to know what a great job Chief (Mike) Montaño has done for the county’s fire departments. He has moved the departments in a positive direction.
    Chief Montaño has set contracts and service agreements in place.
    He has written several proposals which just need to be set out for bid.

    Tighten OUR belts?
    “Tighten your belts,” says the fat State of New Mexico.  In my tenure as an elected official, I’ve been to several workshops/conferences/trainings hosted by the State.

    Tax cuts for whom?

    They did it Again! The millionaire Congressmen and billionaire president were bought by the super rich and corporations to give themselves billions in tax breaks. And they yelled thousands of times, “A tax cut for the poor and middle class.”

    Liars, liars, liars!

    My dear fellow Americans, can you imagine how much of a tax break we would have gotten if it had been given to us instead?

    What a team

    In the 60 years that I have been on this planet, I have never witnessed a live contest of the epic proportions that I witnessed on Dec. 3 between Robertson High School Cardinals and Ruidoso Warriors.

    It was the most classic example of Supreme sportsmanship that I have ever witnessed live. 

    First of all, without any reservation, I congratulate the Ruidoso Warriors, they are the State Champions.

    County, fix my road

    The C53B road still legally remains a county road.  The county did not abandon my land.

    Light, hope

    As we had done for many years during the Las Vegas Light Parade, members of our local Amnesty International group planned to gather once again this Dec. 2 at Travelers Cafe on the Plaza to share some of the hope being expressed by Las Vegans with a small group of people who are in particular need of encouragement.

  • Court of Appeals: Bring justice, understanding

    Opinion ≠ truth

    Revelations concerning the influence of a foreign country on our elections are coming to light on an almost daily basis. Our knee-jerk reaction is to recoil in shock and ask “How can this happen?”

    But as a society we have been taught since our earliest years to accept statements and opinions of others as Truth.
