Today's Opinions

  • LA schools have all the advantages

    Dear Editor,

  • A bill whose time has come

    The New Mexico House has passed a bill establishing forms of domestic partnerships in the state, allowing non-traditional couples to have the same rights and benefits as married couples.We think this is a matter whose time has come.

  • Sports bras and border politics

    Here’s a free public relations tip for the University of New Mexico: Quit stinking up the joint with questionable use of taxpayer money and you wouldn’t have to spend $152,000 this year on a Washington, D.C., hotshot to polish your image.$152,000? You’ve got to be kidding. No, I’m not. More on that later.First things first. UNM is an excellent institution, the state’s showcase center of higher educational achievement.

  • Judging Science Fair a prized lesson

    This year’s Los Alamos County Science Fair drew 157 entries. The last Saturday morning in January, I was at the high school cafeteria. The room was abustling with fresh hopes and ideas.Our three-judge team had six special awards from the Sierra Club to give for the best projects on the environment. Projects are in categories by field of science and student class – elementary, junior, and senior (high school). Winners were announced in last Thursday’s Monitor.To start our judging, our team first had to decide which projects to judge.

  • Tunnel-vision editorial didn't help

    Dear Editor,

  • It's time to make a decision

    Dear Editor,It has been 10 months since the Municipal Building ad hoc committee narrowed the number of options to six for dealing with our current Municipal Building. While the county council has a lot on its plate, it is time to make a decision on this issue.

  • Our View: Protect our schools

    It is hard to understand just how much Los Alamos is disliked in the state. But it seems to almost border on insanity.

  • A real choice

    This Tuesday, Democrats across the nation will vote in what is being called Super Tuesday. Here in New Mexico, only Democrats get to vote and they have a real choice.

    We do not think that anyone can really argue very successfully that we as a nation have been on the right path for the last 15 years or so. We feel, as do many, that a change in direction, in leadership, is needed.

    In the Democratic primary there are two clear choices. One represents a way that is suspiciously familiar; the other represents a newer, more inspired way.
