Meet Cibola County Commissioner Candidate Robert S. Windhorst

E-mail Print PDF
Dear Editor,

When I first got involved in Cibola County Politics it was in 2013. I decided that I would run for Magistrate Judge in a Democrat bastion! My opinion has always been that no one Party, or individual, has all the answers, I believe that it takes everyone working together to make things work. I also believe that...

Ramirez ‘Big Break’ story correction

E-mail Print PDF
In regards to last week’s story of ‘Big Break’ in Vol. 2 Issue 82, Friday Oct. 29, I want to make it perfectly clear that although we do appreciate the $12 a night discount for four nights at the Red Roof Inn, 3304 W. Hwy, Mr. Yogash Kumar gave to us the week of Sept. 19 / Sept. 22 in no way shape or form has Mr. Kumar helped us in any other way, especially financially or with temporary housing which was stated in this issue of the Gallup Sun. The stay was not free and he is not assisting or providing temporary housing for myself and my family. We would like to thank the community, friends, and family for their support, donations and prayers during this difficult time. We do have a...

Dear Editor,

In recent months, the consideration for obtaining curbside recycling has continued.

Currently, the city of Gallup has started staffing the recycling drop off centers with expanded hours. This has made recycling in Gallup more convenient to the public and is  a positive step. The August non-binding referendum saw a favorable vote for curbside recycling with an added fee tacked on to their monthly utility bill.

McKinley Citizens’ Recycling Council continues to educate the public on the value of curbside residential recycling and has initiated a petition drive to place a binding commitment on curbside recycling on the March 2017 ballot.

This petition is for placing an...

Letter to the editor: Expulsion of drunks, not jail

E-mail Print PDF
If WE choose to ignore reality and simply go about our own business, reality has a way of hitting us in the face. The governor and Mr. Munoz are dead set on l-o-n-g-e-r sentences for the problem drunks. Reality tell’s us that the drunk population will continue to grow eternally. longer sentences and a never ending supply of problem drunk’s would mean that the tax payer’s would N-E-V-E-R stop paying for all of the medical, dental and eye glass needs, shelter, utilities, beds, clothing, shoes, food and eventually all burial expenses, of ALL of these problem drunks.

God expelled Cain from Eden FOREVER, for killing his brother. God did not apply the death penalty or even put Cain in...

The wisdom of learning from others

To the editor,

Fellow humans who are involved with alcohol: I am aware that for most of you, my attempts to get you to quit drinking are unwelcome. I keep trying because I think back and deeply regret rejecting the people who attempted to help me. Also, the fact that God did not give up on me helps me to not give up on you.

I had a set strategy for all who attempted to get me to quit drinking. I would ask them: “Am I trying to get you to drink with me?”

When they said no, I would say, “Then how about if you live your life and let me live mine?”

I learned the hard way; you do not have to.

There is a saying: A wise man learns from experience, but a wiser man learns from the...
