Letter to the Editor: A Call For Integrity

I am moved to respond to recent Letters to the Editor on the topic of funding the Los Alamos County Office of Sheriff particularly from a perspective of Integrity and the restoration of Integrity.

George Chandler’s letter of April 10, 2017, is an excellent example of behavior that fails to deliver on what is actually possible in the world: It appears as a full display of being base that undermines actual fulfillment in any area of life.

Letter To The Editor: Don't Call Police For Pizza

I too attended the Los Alamos County Council meeting Tuesday. I too heard Councilor Tony Maggiore state that the council has previously strayed beyond their purview. I am of two minds about this. 

On the one hand it might be better for the county if drafting ineffective and irrelevant resolutions, and then pontificating about them for hours was ALL the county council did. On the other hand perhaps the county would actually benefit if the county council stuck to county business. One can argue either side of this.

People, the county council is not a platform for

Letter To The Editor: There Will Be A Time For Compassion But For Now Immigrants Must Be Vetted

After reading the proposed resolution constructed by Los Alamos County Councilor Pete Sheehey, and agreed upon by Council Chair David Izraelevitz, I too am voicing my opinion.

The history of immigration in our country has had different issues to take into consideration over the past two centuries. Our government has had to implement various policies and procedures about immigration to fit our needs. From the very early days in 1875 restrictions and policies barred convicts and prostitutes from entering.

Budget time, Los Alamos! Once more down the rabbit hole. 

Our Sheriff is the wabbit, leading us on. Even though the voters last fall simply chose to keep the office as it was then (register sex offenders, wear the Hat), he now approaches the council announcing that the result was a mandate to expand the office so he can provide unspecified “services” to the tune of $348,118 (link).

Now we see the end game: TOYS! A $65,000 ¾ ton truck with a gooseneck hitch for transporting HORSES – to scenes!
