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.

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...

What warrants prosecution?

To the editor,

A real president for the Navajo Nation is needed.

In 1973, an 18-year-old protesting the legal sale of alcohol to Native Americans who were falling down drunk was killed by Gallup police. The Navajo chairman sent his apologies to the Gallup mayor several years ago.

Farmington police killed a man for assaulting his girlfriend. The Navajo president did nothing.

The present president wants the officer who executed a drunk woman in Winslow, who posed zero danger to him or to his fellow officer (who has yet to be identified), “removed and barred from further serving as a police officer.” There’s no mention of prosecution, or if no prosecution, of boycotting all of...
