  • Cancellations affect few students

    Dear Editor,

    I want to respond to the small part of my quote in the May 13 article about UNM-LA: “A student had three classes canceled.” That came after I said, “In reality, very few students are affected by class cancellations, but occasionally one or two students are impacted greatly.”

    The majority of the classes we cancel have zero enrollment, so no students are affected when we cancel these classes. Another large number of classes cancel with one to three students in them and only a handful of students are affected.

  • Math could help on Diamond

    Dear Editor,

  • County cannot enforce RV code

    Dear Editor,

    I liked your recent Sunday editorial. In addition to what you suggested I would like to see an RV storage area. The code on storing RVs cannot be enforced because the county does not have any place for people to park them.

    The one on North Mesa is full. The large RV spaces have not had a vacancy in at least four years. I called the two RV storage places listed in the yellow pages for Santa Fe and they are full. I was given the phone number for another place and they are full also, so the need is there.

  • Skate approval ignored citizens

    Dear Editor,

    Kudos to the members of P & Z and our county council who voted to ignore the will of most Los Alamos citizens. Those who voted for the skate board park location and construction have shown that they too can “stay the course” and ignore all reasoning.

    They proved the following:

    • It is better to recreate than to educate.

    • It is better to reward irresponsible behavior than to correct it.

  • Students can be part of solution

    Dear Editor,

    As I passed through the parking lot by Sullivan Field on my way to work, I was bothered by the number of youths driving to school. I realize that some must travel from the Jemez or the valley, but many others are driving from local homes directly off a school bus route.

    I find it frustrating that some of these same youths protest international conflicts, yet they propagate such violence by their own insatiable appetite for oil.

  • Pearce, Wilson and the bogeyman

    Dear Editor,

    I see that Rep. Heather Wilson is making the statement that her opponent, Rep. Steve Pearce voted to “mothball Cannon Air Force Base.” What is wrong with that? It was certainly appropriate at the time, since there was no mission in sight then and the alternative was to accept the BRAC report and close the base permanently.

  • The answer for White Rock

    Dear Editor,

    I’ve read the proposed White Rock Development Plan and I have a few comments. I also read the article in the Monitor May 11 about the town hall meeting where the plan was discussed.

    I completely agree that the library needs to be on residential side of N.M. 4. It is simply unacceptable to ask young children to cross N.M. 4. I don’t care how safe the crossing is (even an overpass), young children should not have to cross N.M. 4.

  • White Rock deserves fair share

    Dear Editor,

  • County doesn't listen to citizens

    Dear Editor,

    Los Alamos and White Rock were busy towns when I first arrived in 1968. However, since my 1986 LAHS graduation, I’ve witnessed a steady loss of retail, and a deterioration of infrastructure and public buildings.

  • Provide food for local families

    Dear Editor,

    LA Cares is a nonprofit organization serving only Los Alamos County. Our primary purpose is to provide boxes of food to any resident or family who is in need. In the last two years, the number of boxes we are preparing monthly has increased substantially, hence the purpose of this letter.
