Reduce your risk 100% for STDs

E-mail Print PDF
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...

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Thinking of gold? Not in terms of taking it to get melted down, but as in “going for the gold.” You’re still reeling from Mercury in retrograde, but it’s time to end the meltdown right now and tackle your next project, even if it just means clearing your work desk of clutter. Next, take an uphill walk with a friend.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You claim to have psychic abilities, but it’s really good intuition. Someone’s eccentric behavior really bothers you, but everyone else considers him the life of the party. His life is one continuous episode of “Ridiculousness.” Lots of high risk antics, such as skateboarding down stairs. Do it Taurus - tell...

PART 3

In fact it can be argued Seattle should be the poster child for curbside failure.  When asked of Seattle’s fees Mr. Parker could only guess at $25.00/month. That gives CDM serious credibility issues. In Gallup we currently pay $15.00 a month and that should be lower considering our location. EPA bureaucrats claim the revenues received for processed commodities offset program costs however the evidence shows the costs of curbside are far greater than the revenue generated. The cost of living in Seattle is bad enough for those of low income without piling on more costs. Recycling regulations have become so intrusive in Seattle citizens have described their curbside program as...

What I could not of would not see before, I see now. Alcohol will never be banned in our drunk city. I am all-one in publicly advocating for the banning of alcohol in McKinley County and the reservation. Zero incumbents or contenders, Indian or non-Indian are for the banning of alcohol. The overwhelming majority of voters and non-voters, Indian and non-Indian are for keeping alcohol legal. Bring on the money and to hell with death and destruction. I finally throw in the towel. I am beaten.

In 1980, at age 45, after 32 years of drinking, I finally quit cold. Too late. Alcohol cost me my first wife and my children. In my guilt and desire to keep others from suffering from what I still...

PART 2

Program efficiency is meaningless unless taken in context of costs, as many communities have learned. Section 5.2 is titled ‘Benefits of curbside programs’ yet there is no section or mention in the report of drawbacks or historical unintended consequences.

It is a report I would expect of a used car or solar panel salesman avoiding any harsh realities which may scare off the customer. My own condensed feasibility report which drew upon international scientific studies was offered at the first curbside meeting last summer, and then ignored - no intellectual curiosity by the Recycling Council nor City Council, no interest in investigation, no phone calls from Mr. O’Hara or...
