  • County should worry more about recent power outages

    Dear Editor,

    (Aug. 3) we were treated to yet another power outage. This one lasted nearly four hours.

    After enduring endless utility work in the last few years with the promise of making our utilities “more reliable,” the outages this year have been worse than I’ve seen in the past 19 years that I’ve lived here. North Mesa and Barranca Mesa are always the last areas to have power restored.

    Dear Editor,

    I first loved the planting in the Roundabout. I love the new beautiful bronze mountain lion statue even more. But the formal garden with flowers doesn’t go with a mountain lion. Better would be native grass and weeds (which are really wildflowers).

  • Skate park needed now

    Skate park needed now

    Dear Editor,

    As long as Mike Wismer has decided to bring forth a petition for the skate park to be put on the ballot, I thought it would be in the best interest of all concerned that I have been running an online petition after the Monitor survey was hacked. I am attaching the link to the petition so that if you click on the signatures section you will be able to verify that the signatures are correct and were not coerced in anyway nor were fear tactics used to get these signatures.

  • Council should listen to people

    Dear Editor,

    The council meeting last Tuesday night was a good example of non-democratic action. The members stated that they had not read letters or e-mails or answered phone calls in order not to be influenced. I had always assumed that in a democracy the people should have a voice and that it was the job of elected officials to listen.

  • Hats off to council

    Dear Editor,

    After nearly a half decade, the skate park has overcome the last hurdle and can now be built. For a town that is supposedly one of the “top 100 best communities for youth,” it is simply unfathomable that it took this long and faced such extreme resistance from a minority in our community. Our democratically elected county government finally did it’s job for us.

  • New building site a good idea

    Dear Editor,

    The residents of Los Alamos County have a lot to consider with the proposed location for a new Municipal Building plus retail and community space at 15th and Trinity streets. The buildings’ conceptual designs and location are available on-line (www.losalamosnm.us), at the public library, and at the county annex building.

  • All opinions should matter

    Dear Editor,

    Regarding the alternate site article in the Aug. 1 Monitor, I wonder if we are heading toward yet another “let’s ignore the public’s desires” project by rushing to put the Municipal Building at Trinity and 15th Streets. I recall that public sentiment was to first renovate the now demolished Municipal Building, and if not that, to rebuild in the same location.
