Today's Opinions

  • School bond vote important decision

    There is a very important debate going on in our community right now. And it centers around all of the basis of society, taxes, youth, the world today and the future.

     

    It’s not an easy discussion. It is often hard to look too far ahead when you can barely pay today’s bills. It is hard to discuss what things will be like in 10 years when you’re not sure how you will get though this one.

     

    And both sides of this discussion have good points.

     

  • Time to fix schools is now

    Dear Editor,

     

    We are responding to the Jan. 6 letter from Richard Hannemann titled, “There is no hurry for bond.”   Richard states, “We have already seen, far too often in the past year, what happens when programs and expenditures get pushed forward too fast and too hard, in a need for speed that has no objective foundation.”  

     

  • Support the bond

    Dear Editor,

    I would like to voice my support for the upcoming LAPS bond election. I am a proud graduate of LAPS and I know how fortunate we are to have excellent schools. 

    Many of my co-workers living in both Santa Fe and Albuquerque are forced to send their children to private schools at considerable expense. Our excellent schools also attract many families and great teachers to our community helping us all thrive.  

  • Improved schools important

    Dear Editor,

    AAUW Los Alamos Supports the LAPS bond issue.  The majority of the Los Alamos School facilities are over 45 years old. They are outdated and no longer provide the learning environment necessary to meet AAUW education priorities. Updated, state-of-the-art learning facilities show that the community cares about education. 

  • Are you our next county councilor?

    The county council needs your help! Jim West’s resignation created a vacant seat on the seven-member council responsible for local government. 

    Our charter requires the remaining six to appoint a “qualified voter” to serve through December 2010. Would you or someone you know make a good councilor?

    Council is a great way to serve our community.  It is also a major commitment of time and energy.

  • UNM-LA offers quality education

    Daniel Pink, author of “A Whole New Mind,” says that a crucial need in the 21st century is a story that makes sense of one’s data.

    In this and following columns, I hope to begin telling the stories of UNM-Los Alamos as it re-envisions itself and what it can do best.

    What we have done and still do best is teaching. The first part of our story is to remind everyone that we are one of the best two-year transfer schools in the state of New Mexico.

  • 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.
