Today's Opinions

  • Healthy schools are Important

    Dear Editor,

     I have been a school nurse with the Los Alamos Public Schools since moving here in 1978. I have worked at every school in this district either as a school nurse or a school nurse substitute.

  • School bond election vital

    Dear Editor,

     Los Alamos registered voters will be receiving their school bond election ballots this week.  I encourage you to exercise your right to vote on this important issue.  Our school buildings need significant attention now! 

    The early phases of the bond will address the high school and the middle school, which will positively impact all students.  These projects are needed now and delaying them will not make them go away, but will make them even more expensive in the future. 

  • Schools critical to future

    Dear Editor,

     My husband and I came to Los Alamos over 36 years ago.  One of the reasons we chose to come here was the outstanding reputation of the Los Alamos School system.  Since then we have raised three children, who all attended and graduated from Los Alamos Public Schools and I had the privilege of serving for twelve years on the School Board.   We are now empty nesters who continue to support the schools and advocate for children.

  • Peace is goal for everyone

    Dear Editor,

  • We need real change

    Dear Editor,

    I attended the Dec. 16 County Council meeting in support of Min Park’s petition to stop funding  construction of the Judicial/Police/Complex until concerns of location, size and cost were fully addressed.  At this meeting, council members spoke of concerns with these very issues, yet even those who voiced the strongest concerns voted to fund the project as designed. 

  • Vote YES on bond election

    Dear Editor,

     With the upcoming school bond election we have an opportunity to invest in improving our educational infrastructure. This is a very sound investment, unlike those that have contributed to our national economic ills. 

  • Support bond election effort

    Dear Editor,

     What? You want me to vote to raise taxes to support schools when I do not have a child in school? What about the failing economy, the stock market, the mortgage crisis? What is wrong with the schools we have? Children have been attending schools here for years and they are fine. Should seniors have to pay higher taxes to support our schools?   

  • Guilty until show innocence

    It was with very mixed emotions that we watched the Bill Richardson saga unfold last weekend.

    There were some real positives to his leaving now and his decision to quit the process to join the Obama administration means he will stay here a bit longer.

    But what bothers us the most is his statement that while he is innocent, he is quitting anyway.

    That is not the way it should be.

    If you are innocent of something, that false accusation should not cause you to surrender. We remember the day when you were innocent until someone proved you were guilty.
