Have stopped in Gallup numerous times in past 15-plus years and always enjoyed many aspects of your town.

For first time, stayed at Microtel hotel and found this statue in foyer. Very much enjoyed the hotel, until noticed this “subliminal stereotype” in AM! If noted checking in, would have canceled! Offensive? Like...

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. Obviously, it places an emphasis on the Native American culture and settings in just about every aspect that can produce a profit in the “Indian Capital of the World”.

One of the attractions that Gallup has marketed is the trails that lead into the nearby Red Rock mountains, of which the City takes absolutely zero responsibility for when it advertises the scenic paths and are now littered with trash left behind by the visitors who traverse the trails.

They disrespect the land by leaving their trash and...

The 12 Russian intelligence officers and three corporations were indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller for crimes related to hacking and publicly releasing Democrats’ emails, as part of an effort to interfere with the 2016 presidential campaign in which Hillary Clinton...

Let your voice be heard on nuke waste

Editor,

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...
