Today's Opinions

  • JPJ complex bad idea

    Dear Editor,

    At last, a citizen of this town has had the guts to talk about the emperor’s new clothes. Not that the emperor has no clothes, but that he has too many and they cost way too much.

  • Council did the right thing

    The council’s action in taking no action was the right thing to do in regards to the vacancy left by Jim West. While we would not have had any issue with the council beginning the process of seeking out applicants, there is nothing wrong with waiting until January.

    Yes, this will delay the process but that is a small price to pay when you consider that this really needs to be done right – and by those it will impact most, the council coming on board in 2009.

  • United Way helps many - thanks to you!

    Well, the 2009 United Way campaign is over and thanks to all of you, the United Way of Northern New Mexico will be able to help many agencies help many people.

    The generous giving from those living here put the campaign over the $2 million mark. It is something to be proud of.

    With all the uncertanties in the economy and nation, for us to dig so deep and allow all these agencies the chance to really help those in need, is truly remarkable.

    Here are the agencies that we have all helped:

  • Hospital staff first-rate

    Dear Editor,

    I was fortunate to go to LAMC on Halloween Day this year and enjoyed the delightful costumes worn by the staff. The main entrance was populated by the characters from the storybook “The Wizard of Oz” beginning with Dorothy at registration and ending with the Wizard himself. What a great welcoming!

  • Unanimity is for autocrats, lemmings

    Dear Editor,

    I do not trust unanimity.  It seems to me that, usually, the only way to achieve it is when faced with dire need and/or only one option, or when in conversation with one’s self.  And yet...

     Recently, council was presented with an update on the animal shelter.  Councilors expressed a variety of concerns, some fairly serious, and engaged in lively debate.  Then they voted unanimously to proceed.

  • Bandelier made mistake

    Dear Editor,

    We wanted to thank you for running the article about the Bandelier logo contest, while also apologizing to the winner, Lily Fehler, for misspelling her name in the information we sent to you. 

    We’d also like to use this opportunity to thank the other young people who submitted their artwork to the contest:  Paris Lynch , Maren Gaussoin Woods, David Li , Andrew Li, Roxanne Grieggs, and Annika Katarina Oyler .   

  • School bond very important

    Dear Editor,

    To my fellow residents of Los Alamos:  I have learned that there will be a bond election in January to build new school space for the Los Alamos School District.  It is very important to generate additional funding to replace facilities in the district. 

  • Electrical line voltage fluctuations

    Dear Editor,

    I live on North Mesa and have been experiencing significant electrical line voltage variations in my home.  On Nov. 30 at about 7:30 p.m., the line voltage registered on my AV system’s surge suppressor was only 113 volts.  About four days ago, it dropped down to 114 volts. 

    At these low voltages, the AV system is affected.  The line voltage to my home is mostly 119 - 121 volts.  I’m wondering if other parts of the community are also experiencing such wide variations in line voltage?
