Letter to the editor: Thank you to Indigenous People’s Day supporters

E-mail Print PDF
Editor,

A note of thanks to everyone who came out to support Indigenous People’s Day on October 14, 2019.

Although the Day is not yet a Federal Holiday, there are efforts nation-wide to make this change happen; 11 states, including New Mexico, have replaced the long held holiday honoring a man that was actually lost at...

Letter to the editor: View of a veteran

E-mail Print PDF
Government and private companies gone wild in California, just this week electricity was cut off to almost a million people for fear of starting a fire!  The state has lost its mind by allowing a private company to shut off the electricity to people who may be on oxygen, sleep c-pac’s, COPD therapy machines, and other at home medical devices.  So, the question is if a person were to die, or have to go to the hospital because there at home medical devices would not work who is going to pay for this?  This is the same state that bans certain assault firearms and their magazine size, limits concealed carry permits, is a sanctuary state, wants to give illegals free medical care, and...

A clarification for a Sept. 20 article

In the aforementioned article it is written that I “explained that one of [my] neighbors damaged a drainage pipe while performing maintenance work in his yard, he did not ask permission from the city to make any changes to the pipe prior to the incident.  After that happened, [I] told city staff, that the City of Gallup had marked it for private maintenance and was refusing to maintain it.”

My response to this statement is that they are the words and explanation of Stan Henderson, City of Gallup employee and project director for this upcoming undertaking. The statement and explanation are not my words.

I was the sole residential/community...

Response to ‘Thoughts on Trump’ Gallup Sun, Sept. 27

E-mail Print PDF
The visit to New Mexico by Donald Trump on September 16, 2019, did not inspire hope or excitement. New Mexico has been fortunate to be considered a “Blue” State for many reasons, foremost is the fact that we are a State of diversity and inclusion, contrary to the Doctrine of Trump “MAGA” that promotes racism, hatred, division and violence.

The actions of the Republican GOP, scripted and rehearsed with their false patriotism, fake morality, serious lack of professional ethics, collaboration with America’s historical enemies and scandalous corruption are acceptable to them. And no wonder, Donald Trump’s Zero Tolerance Immigration Policy has over 52,000 Immigrant Children in...
