Cutting federal funding for tribal higher education grants is wrong

E-mail Print PDF
For the third year in a row the Trump administration has proposed eliminating funding for a Native American college scholarship program which gives assistance to thousands of tribal students across the country.  His Bureau of Indian Education is proposing cuts of almost $40 million for the Higher Education Grant Program for the 2021 budget.

The Higher Education Grant Program helps undergraduate students, who are determined to have a financial need. Most of the students served by ONNSFA fall into that category. Need-based students receive $2,500 per term, which helps students cover the balance of tuition and fees, room and board, textbooks, and transportation costs.

This is especially true of reproductive healthcare. As a family medicine provider, I routinely consult [with] patients on...

Letter to the Editor: Some political speech is meaningless

Dear Gallup Area Voters,

Oorah, luckily no one from the ‘good old boy’ system is running in the municipal elections this cycle and there are good candidates this time. That certainly leaves room for optimism doesn’t it? Though, as you would guess since I’m writing this letter, I do have an issue to present to you readers who acknowledge your duty to vote, and since all the current candidates, including the ones I personally support, are guilty of this, raising this issue publicly now, does not suggest my preferences.

First, how long has Gallup been treading water or on the decline? How long have the serious problems in Gallup (infrastructure, streets & sidewalks, stagnant...
