Letter to the Editor: Respect natural habitats, sacred sites

Editor,

Gallup, New Mexico, called “Nanizhozhi” in Dine’ (Navajo), is indeed a “crossing point” that all roads lead to and where a rainbow of cultures live and thrive.

With the prospect of having high-level radioactive nuclear waste coming to New Mexico from over 100 nuclear reactors and other potential sources located all over the United States, residents of McKinley County and Gallup have an opportunity to weigh in on the decisions that will determine this outcome.

The proposed transportation routes are on Interstate 40 and the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad which go through the Heart of Gallup. According to the U.S. Nuclear Regulation Commission (NRC) and Holtec International, the company that wants to build the waste site, the proposed Consolidated Interim Storage Facility (CISF) will be located in Lea County in Southeastern New...

Letter to the Editor: ‘We, The People’ need to vote

Editor,
It’s time to VOTE again.

Decisions that are made on our behalf from the local to the national level; taxes are raised without electorate input; Indigenous tribes and minorities are constantly being ostracized; the environment is being reduce to contaminated wastelands as a result of unrestrained mineral extraction operations; governments are being theologically politicized that are detrimental to America’s future and the separation between Church and State; unelected individuals with questionable backgrounds are being appointed to key positions; the U.S. Treasury is being raided for the purpose of lavish personal spending; the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights and the...
