Today's Opinions

  • ‘An Impending Catastrophe!’

    Dear Editor,

    Those are the words of Dr. Carl Djerassi, the co-creator of the contraceptive pill. He goes on to say that modern families are “wanting to enjoy their shnitzels while leaving the rest of the world to get on with it.” Now, I’m not certain what a “shnitzel” is, but the comment certainly does not sound like a compliment.

    Many studies collaborate the following facts in countries which contracept:

    • population decline,

    • intelligence immigration,

    • increase in cervical cancer, and

  • Problems with bond issue

    Dear Editor,

    Here’s how to make sure I vote against the school bond.

    DO preach doom and gloom if one does not vote for the bond.

    DO tell me the quality of the education that our kids get will deteriorate because they are not being taught in a new classroom.

    DO put the importance of a classroom above the importance of a teacher.

  • Go with experience

    Dear Editor,

     The county council is going through an elaborate procedure to select a replacement for Jim West. Well and good, but the fact is Ken Milder has already been elected. He received 5,072 votes in the recent election, 1,409 more votes than the remaining candidate. In other words, 5,072 people have already voted for Ken.

  • Few questions about bond

    Dear Editor,

    1)  Isn’t the school board that’s wants the bond money the same school board that recently “wrote off” six million dollars of missing money?

    2) If there is overwhelming urgency right now to fix the school’s 60 year old  buildings, why wasn’t there this much urgency 10 years ago when the buildings  were 50 years old?  It seems that the urgency is more the fear that REAL economic bad times are ahead and maybe people really won’t have the money (even all the Los Alamos millionaires!). 

  • Please support school bond

    Dear Editor,

     I was elated last summer when I was hired to work as a teacher at Los Alamos Middle School. The prior summer I visited Los Alamos and was very impressed by the town’s infrastructure and by its palpable sense of community pride. 

  • Richardson’s dubious agenda

    Dear Editor,

    Can we afford the Bill Richardson agenda here in New Mexico? The governor has had to withdraw from the national scene due to his possible involvement in the play-to-play scandal involving CDR Financial Products. (Come to think about it, isn’t it dubious “financial products” that have caused our current economic recession? Hmmm....)

  • Ken Milder is the person

    Dear Editor,

    Ken Milder has served this community over many years with intelligence and diligence as a county councilor and as a a member of the utility board. Disagreement with some decisions is inevitable but in our opinion we are fortunate to have someone with his experience, talent and qualifications.

    We strongly recommend that the council select Ken Milder to fill the vacancy.

  • An audit to invite you to

    Audit never brings to mind educational, enjoyable times – and free shower heads – until I had one conducted by the county’s Water & Energy Conservation Officer Matt Dickens of the Department of Public Utilities.
