  • 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.

  • Everyone deserves stage time

    Dear Editor,

    I would like to state that we do have a lot of terrific and talented teens in Los Alamos! It is a shame that Ms. Saunders did not think to make sure that all of our very enthusiastic students who tried out for “Little Shop of Horrors” were allowed to take part somewhere in the production.

  • Put away your sword, McCain

    Dear Editor,

    Those who say McCain didn’t really mean it when he said “I don’t think Americans are concerned if we’re there for 100 years,” should examine the record again. He has said repeatedly that American troops should be in Iraq for decades to come.

  • Read, read, read!

    Dear Editor,

    Seventy-five years ago – May 10, 1933 – the Nazis staged what is probably the most infamous of all book burnings.

    The burnings were a very public, very threatening public relations stunt organized by two Nazi student associations anxious to prove their allegiance to the government. The Nazi Purification Committee deemed more than 2,500 authors fuel for the fires, and thousands of books banned by the Nazi regime were tossed into the pyres.

    Minister for Popular Enlightenment and Propaganda Joseph Goebbels gave official approval to the event.
