Letters to the editor: County fair unsafe for valuables

County fair unsafe for valuables I just finished reading the article: “Official: Fair Revenues Up Nearly $60,000” and I felt the need to comment about the fair being deemed a success. There may have been success from a money standpoint, but one of the events presented a challenge for me. I am referring to putting […]

God’s warnings require our attention

Curtis K. Shelburne It had to be a government production, the sign I saw. Only a glassy-eyed bean-counting bureaucrat with common sense completely and laboriously expunged by years of mind-numbing training could have produced it. (Your tax dollars at work.) Posted above a busy tramway, the sign proclaimed in large letters: TOUCHING WIRES CAUSES INSTANT […]

Letters to the editor: Let’s vote to take liars out of office

Let’s vote to take liars out of office With wonderful journalism, MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” has documented for us over several months the stunning hypocrisy of many of our national politicians. The essence of this may be old news: “They all lie.” Of course they don’t all lie. But the most egregious offenders who […]

Letters to the editor: School site should be questioned

School site should be questioned Regarding recent controversy on location of a new Clovis middle school: Hmm, let’s see here. The school district already owns land within city limits on which to build a new middle school. Utilities, roads and such are in place. A developer generously donates 40 acres of land outside the city […]

Letters to the editor: We are not nation of Christians

We are not nation of Christians According to Stan White (in Sunday’s letter headlined “Presidential acts questionable”), the president acted questionably when he stated “America is not a Christian nation.” I believe he was stating the truth. America is a nation of many religious beliefs including many that are not “Christian.” Perhaps White is thinking […]

Letters to the editor: Obama has delivered on platform

Obama has delivered on platform Glenda Bly’s April 6 letter (“Hard work is the American Way”) proves ignorance of the truth is still bliss. First, the bill President Obama just signed is totally a health-care reform bill. Something that has been tried for decades is now signed, sealed and delivered. It appears Glenda and the […]
