Letters to the editor: Horse slaughter critics unrealistic

On May 11, you printed a letter from state Sen. Mary Jane Garcia with her thought that horse slaughter leads to over-breeding of horses. May we disagree completely with her? I am 66 years old and have been on the back of a horse for at least 62 of those years. No matter how special […]

Letters to the editor: Do not let governor decide race

Letters to the editor: Spears will not compromise values

Angie Spears is an independent, honest woman with strong Christian, family values. That's why I support her personally. But I also support her candidacy professionally, as the district attorney, because she comprehends the dangers of the law that allows illegal immigrants the right to a New Mexico driver's license.

Letters to the editor: Spay, neuter program best solution

I drove into my work driveway and saw a box sitting on the step. Having seen this several times during the past year and knowing what I was going to find, I got a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. In the bottom of the box was a note that read "Blessed are […]

Letters to the editor: America’s values are tarnished

Recently I received the following email: "I am still praying for I believe it will be the end of America as we know it if Obama gets re-elected." In response I wrote: America as we have known it is already a thing of the past. We now have: Open contempt for the U.S. Constitution in […]

Letters to the editor: Wildcat Relays community event

Wildcat Relays community event I am writing to compliment Brian Stacy and his entire crew of workers who ran the Wildcat Relays last Friday at the Rock and high school field.
