    Well, the new jailhouse may rock (Los Alamos Monitor, front page headline, Jan. 13), but the old schoolhouse certainly doesn’t. I’m sure the irony in this contrast strikes many of us, especially those involved with children in the county. It’s one of the many reasons why I’m going to vote in favor of the current referendum on behalf of our school system. I want to be part of a community that sends a positive message of support to our students, as well as to our teachers and other school staff.

  • Debate looks like it was manipulated

    The following was not supposed to be an editorial, but recent news events and new understandings would not allow me to remain silent any longer. Recent Monitor articles including “Getting to the Bottom of Global Warming” (Dec. 13, 2009) inspired a response.

  • Have fun and support a worthy cause all in one weekend

    After a successful run last year, the organizers of the K2 Women’s Weekend decided if it’s not broke, why fix it?

    As a result, the weekend program is returning to Pajarito Mountain Ski Area. It will be held Feb. 5-7.

    The New Mexico Conference of Catholic Bishops will oppose the legislation, just as it did last year when lawmakers rejected a similar proposal. Opposition from the Roman Catholic Church dims prospects for the legislation’s approval.

    Due to limited resources, the county does not clear every sidewalk. Sidewalk priorities include:
