Letters

  • Blaming Republicans wrong

    Dear Editor,

    I just recently read an article “Residents express concern over missing campaign signs” and the wife of County Councilor Mike Wheeler made some very strong accusations towards Republicans stating, “I thought Republicans stood for freedom and property rights, but maybe that is only for them.”

  • Lots of blame to go around

    Dear Editor,

    In a recent letter to the editor (Sept. 11) takes the Republican Party to task for a variety of financial ills, including the recent takeover of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac by federal officials. Was this wrath properly directed or should it be more bipartisan? A brief history leading to this crisis is instructive.

  • Gladly, Bushs last hurrah

    Dear Editor,

    In another amazing display of audacious opportunism, President Bush has discovered a way to pour another trillion dollars into the pockets of his corporate friends.

    In his first term Bush was able to turn the tragedy of 9/11 into a bonanza for his friends by initiating the war in Iraq. He panicked the Congress into authorizing the war, abandoning their constitutional prerogatives, and granting him unprecedented executive powers.

  • Similar words not the same

    EDITOR’S NOTE: I want to thank Terry for pointing out the mistake I made in my column Sunday in copying the preamble. Knowing better is not enough. Thanks Terry.

    Dear Editor,

    I suppose I cannot blame you, since Wikipedia and many other sites (not sights!) that ought to know better have it wrong also, but: the preamble says that action is being taken to “ensure domestic tranquility,” not “insure.” See the original text at the Library of Congress: memory.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/r?ammem/bdsdcc:@field(DOCID+@lit(bdsdccc0801))

  • Co-op not involved in site

    Dear Editor,

    The letter by Vincent Chiravalle in the Monitor (“Trinity Site not good for county,” Sept. 9) includes several misconceptions about the issues surrounding the public/private partnership and construction of the new municipal building and commercial building at the 15th and Trinity site. His letter imputes certain motivations to the Los Alamos Co-operative Market (LACM) Board of Directors that are inaccurate, and the board would like to clarify our position.

  • We do need parking options

    Dear Editor,

    I would like to suggest that Mr .Vincent Chiravalle, a candidate for the local county council reconsider his view about building a parking lot at the new Trinity Site on Central Avenue.   

  • Stop taking signs

    Dear Editor,

    There has been a rash of attacks on political signs lately. I’ve heard of many Obama signs stolen and then found stuck in one yard in the western area. Several of my own signs have either been moved or damaged.  I don’t know about other candidates.  But I am asking the person or person’s responsible for these actions to stop!!

  • There'll never be another ewe

    Dear Editor,

    I was reading an article about strange laws, some of them truly bizarre, such as the one in Montana that prohibits having an unchaperoned sheep in the cab of your truck. Oddly enough, they don’t have any laws against unchaperoned goats. In Eureka Nev., it’s illegal for a man with a moustache to kiss a woman.  It is however (I assume) perfectly legal for a woman with a moustache to kiss a man.

  • Learn and go vote!

    Dear Editor,

    Truth is the first casualty of war and political campaigns. Unlike consumer product advertisements, there are no laws protecting voters from false advertising in political ads.

    A politician can flat-out lie and the media are required by law to broadcast or publish it. We can no longer rely on the media to check and hold politicians accountable for their claims.

    Much of the media have their own interests and the voters and the truth are not always a priority.  

  • We should support the Elks

    Dear Editor,

    In response to Mr.Hollis’ letter, I am appalled at the fact that our county leadership would even think to try to get the Elk’s Lodge to try to sell its building or even do infra-structure to meet the county needs.

    I am not a member of the Elks, but I have had the utmost beneficial honor to attend many of their fundraising events from its Halloween dance, comedy night, golf tournament, and many other events these people organize to raise funds of those in need.
