Accept blame Sen. Munoz: Provide bold, new solutions

E-mail Print PDF
While addressing Gallup’s vagrancy problem at a public meeting last year our state senator George Munoz proclaimed “This is not a blame game, we need solutions”. My initial thought was, how can any solutions be offered without first knowing the root cause? My second thought was, those who avoid the blame game are...

I say at the top that I am not attempting to get alcohol banned in drunk city or “dry” reservation. I will also not bring up the pros and cons of drinking alcohol.

Used, abused, addicted drinkers, the calvary is you. If you do not quit drinking cold, the cons that I am not listing, await you. Not one pro is in store for you. The hypocrite officials, Indian and non-Indian, will not come to your rescue. Their calvary is always too late.

Used, abused, addicted drinkers, a profit making jail is wanted in drunk city, if you refuse to understand that you must first help yourselves or God will not help you. Then a potter’s field like the one that Judas paid for with his betrayal and...

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Well, it’s getting hot out there honey, and to boot, you heard a little unsettling news.  Heat + Bad News = Grumpy Goat Holder. Yes, I know, it’s a ram … just a little joke to cheer you up. Chances are if you’re from Gallup you have dabbled in flea market cuisine, and some vendors may roast a goat rib or two. Tie one on this weekend, and try something new. Food I mean!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

In journalism, there’s supposed to be this person called a “fact checker.” They even check Madame G’s horrible grammar. OK, you have received some misinformation. You have been told that Uncle Barney is flirting with ladies at the senior center. When in...

Reduce your risk 100% for STDs

Dear Editor:

Thank you for running the article “A Test for Life” in your May 1, 2015 issue.  Educating our community on the silent STD epidemic in our area is critical.

McKinley County had the highest rates of chlamydia and gonorrhea in New Mexico in 2013.  Statewide, 63% of reported chlamydia cases were among persons aged 15-24, and 48% of reported gonorrhea cases were also from the same age range.

One of the most important sentences in your article was “According to the CDC and New Mexico Department of Health, not having sex is the only way to prevent STDs.”  (That includes vaginal, anal, and oral sex.)  Another way to express it is waiting to have sex until you are in...
