Letter to the Editor: In support of wearing a mask

E-mail Print PDF
Why doesn’t the Mayor put forth a mandatory mask requirement, it would actually be very easy to enforce. My sister lives back east, where you are not allowed into any store without a mask. No mask, No service.  There are still too many people in Gallup in high traffic areas, such as Wal-Mart, irresponsibly not wearing...

Letter to the Editor: America must get back to work, never become a Socialist country

E-mail Print PDF
As  socialist democrats move us closer to socialism and many Americans are out of work, Congresswoman Torres-Small is silent and stays at home and continues to collect a paycheck.  Why is she not traveling throughout the district and pressuring the governor to help New Mexicans get back to work? In return for her silence and votes, she has received over 3 million dollars including large campaign contributions from lobbyists and out of state billionaires who want to take away our freedoms and change America from the ”Land of the Free” to “America, land of socialism and the deep state”.

Today, we see more and more irrational behavior by many socialist democrats, driven by their...

Letter to the Editor: Overflow hospital needs community support and help

E-mail Print PDF
The new COVID-19 overflow hospital at Miyamura HS has been constructed in record time.  In record time the National Guard together with local health officials have turned a gym into a 60-bed overflow COVID-19 patient care center. And we can all be grateful. They will be needing some supplies that we can provide. A website has been set up and we can all help.  The website page is: https://acfmiyamura.wordpress.com/

The plan is for community members to sign up on the page and as needs arise, the hospital staff will post it, and this will be automatically emailed to those of us who have signed up. For example at the time of this writing, they will need sixty serving trays for patient...

Letter to the Editor: Easter thank yous

E-mail Print PDF
Thank you to everyone in Gallup who participated in my community window egg hunt.

In these times of fear, uncertainty, and so many changes to our normal lives, it was truly uplifting to see this community join together for a little fun. We had well over 100 homes decorate their windows across almost every neighborhood in town. We also had 14 businesses volunteer to make golden eggs and give out prizes totaling over $1000.

The amazing business sponsors were:

Lawrence Andrade from family medicine associates

Jeni Verdugo-Black from Bomb Diggity’s

Brandy Laughter from 4 corners yoga

Brandy Klein Sanchez from subway

James Rich from Camilles, Taco Bell, and KFC


Letter to the Editor: Is Coronavirus the real threat or the authoritative overreach of our governments?

E-mail Print PDF
Our daily lives have really taken a toll since the 1980’s. I say the 1980’s because this was pretty much an end to an era of most government regimes, the raise and collapse of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. Since then we fully enjoyed the benefits of what our country has fought for, our freedoms.

I remember as a child I saw on the cover of Time magazine an image of two Germanys being sewn together and in my mind I quickly thought, “Oh no, what’s the world coming to?” I was too young then to understand the significance of the Berlin Wall falling and the collapse of the Soviet Union, because at that age authority was all I knew, why question the authority of the adults?
