Editor,

Winter is in full effect at Standing Rock North Dakota.  The Water Protectors at Oceti Sakowin are working tirelessly to create temporary homes for the thousands of elders, families and Water Protectors there willing to freeze rather than abandon this sacred land and our plight for our planet. They have been working tirelessly to ensure everyone’s safety but as their numbers grow, so do their needs.

Oceti Sakowin Camp is the main camp of 6,000+ people with over 100 Dine’ (Navajo) at the NoDAPL front lines it is fitting that the Navajo Nation take a stand with the Water Protectors and call upon the Obama administration to intervene before January 20th, 2017 while the Navajo...

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.

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...
