  • A visit back to Constitution Day

    SANTA FE -- Constitution Day, Sept. 17, slipped by me this year but that doesn’t mean we still can’t talk about it. Actually mid-September if full of truly momentous events that occurred around this date in past years.

      On Sept. 16, 1810, Father Miguel Hidalgo delivered his Grito to the people of Delores, Mexico, calling on them to unite in overthrowing the Spanish government. What followed was a bloody 11-year war of independence. 

     The little town of Delores still uses the letters cdr, Corazon del Revolution, in its address. Why doesn’t Mexico celebrate its victory in 1821 instead of the beginning of the revolution? We do the same with the adoption of the Declaration of Independence.

  • Time to keep moving forward

    Dear Editor,

     

     I am writing in regard to the Trinity Site Redevelopment project. I am strongly in favor of our County Council agreeing to the assignment of the lease from NADG to Smith’s. And as opposed to Mr. Gibson’s opinion in a recent letter, I do not think this is the time to, once again, re-think this project. Fifteen years is enough and it’s time to keep moving forward.

    The incident reportedly occurred at 3:40 a.m.

    A police spokesman told the Journal North there are "conflicting pieces of information about the incident" and it remains under investigation.

    The newspaper reported the woman received minor injuries when she was shot on the side of her abdomen. The woman told police that the three men had tried to steal her purse.
