If you don’t vote, you have no right to complain

If you haven’t participated in early voting, then registered voters in McKinley and Cibola counties should make plans to vote in next Tuesday’s general election.

All registered voters everywhere have a civic obligation to weigh in on the process of choosing their elected representatives. The low voter turnouts that have been the norm in, particularly, McKinley County—for example, about 30 percent in the June 2016 primary — are unacceptable and suggest a deep well of apathy in the community that stands to poison the effort at making McKinley and Cibola counties better places for taxpayers.

Recently, we saw a practically full gathering of Republicans at Sammy C’s Rock N’...

E-mail Print PDF
In regards to last week’s story of ‘Big Break’ in Vol. 2 Issue 82, Friday Oct. 29, I want to make it perfectly clear that although we do appreciate the $12 a night discount for four nights at the Red Roof Inn, 3304 W. Hwy, Mr. Yogash Kumar gave to us the week of Sept. 19 / Sept. 22 in no way shape or form has Mr. Kumar helped us in any other way, especially financially or with temporary housing which was stated in this issue of the Gallup Sun. The stay was not free and he is not assisting or providing temporary housing for myself and my family. We would like to thank the community, friends, and family for their support, donations and prayers during this difficult time. We do have a...
