• 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.

  • Thanks for helping youth

    Dear Editor,

    This summer I was asked to organize this year’s United Way Youth Team.  We have an excellent corps of energetic, imaginative and hard-working students. Our first event, “Dinner Over Diamond,” was a resounding success! We were sold out and apologize to any folks who were turned away.

  • Council listens to all residents

    Dear Editor,

    Mr. Nunz, perhaps the council is listening but instead of listening to a select group as it has for years it’s starting to realize that there are many different people in Los Alamos and they haven’t been properly represented because council has spent too many years giving in to the loudest group of people in order to give them their way.

  • We are more bike friendly

    Dear Editor,

  • From a fleeced taxpayer

    Dear Editor,

    I saw the headlines recently that said, “Federal officials on Sunday unveiled an extraordinary takeover of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, putting the government in charge of the twin mortgage giants and the $5 trillion in home loans they back. The move, which extends as much as $200 billion in Treasury support to the two companies, marks Washington’s most dramatic attempt yet to shore up the nation’s housing market, which is suffering from record foreclosures and falling prices.”

  • Elks were just asked about site

    Dear Editor,

    Over the past couple of weeks there has been a significant amount of press coverage on the Trinity and 15th option for the new Municipal Building. As an officer of the Los Alamos Lodge 2083 of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, I wish to state my disappointment with county leadership and their disparaging remarks about our facility. For the past 50 years the Elks have served this community as a nonprofit volunteer organization, proudly upholding the four principles of our Order: charity, justice, brotherly love and fidelity.

  • Artwork out of place

    Dear Editor,

    Question: How do you ruin a beautiful quiet little park?

    Answer: Stick an 18-foot, purple and blue phallic piece of “art” in it!

    There is nothing wrong with the piece of art. It is just too overpowering  for this nice little park.

    Maybe the Art in Public Places Board should take another look at the aesthetic effect this thing has on this park.
