  • EPA CO2 declaration hot air

    The spirited defense of Climate Science publication credibility (Chick Keller,  Monitor Guest Column, July 13) requires reading the PNAS paper by Andregg et. al., creating a Black List of investigators not to be consulted on Anthropogenic Climate Change issues in order to ensure credible expert opinion.  Bias?  For purposes of the following,  I’m not qualified in Climate Science but I do have a Toxicology ticket and I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express.

  • Cancer survivor rethinks beliefs

    Before I got cancer, I didn’t even believe in taking vitamins, let alone any ‘alternate stuff.’
    I mean who needs them if you eat properly.
    I used to think ‘Boy, you New Age people are weird. What’s wrong with eating good healthy food, keeping fit and taking whatever the doctor orders?’

  • A write-in candidate for governor will be allowed in general election

    SANTA FE (AP) — Kenneth A. Gomez of Bloomfield, a write-in candidate for governor, will be allowed in New Mexico’s general election even though he doesn’t have a running mate, the secretary of state’s office said Monday.
    The ruling will give New Mexicans another option — possibly for protest votes — in what’s shaping up as a close race between Democrat Diane Denish and Republican Susana Martinez.
    In 1990, two write-in tickets for governor received nearly 1,000 votes.
