Letter to the Editor: Vaccines - My Body My Choice

on November 5, 2012 - 9:46am
By Tara Mara
Los Alamos

Respectfully, I must take issue with the tone of Dr. Tom’s Letter to the Editor regarding the group of parents who met with their representative to discuss infringement of personal liberties.

The CDCs Recommended Vaccine Schedule is exactly that, a recommendation and I personally take their opinion into consideration before I make decisions about MY CHILD’s health.

The issue here that Dr. Tom fails to acknowledge is that this is not a vaccine issue but a parental rights issue.

No one is questioning the legitimacy of the vaccination program en mass or their

Letter to the Editor: Concern Over Parental Rights, Not Vaccine Program

This is in response to the letter to the editor by Dr. Tom Csanadi, "Vaccines-Elected Officials Should Not Feed Fear and Misinformation."

There are several of us who were concerned over the recent changes to the vaccine exemption forms through the Department of Health (DOH.)

The concern was not that exemptions must be filed if one does not follow the vaccine schedule rigidly, but rather a concern that there is specific religious information being gathered and some parents were being turned down.

The challenge we parents find ourselves in is not one of

After many years in small business enterprises, I’m now trying to help entrepreneurs survive long enough to generate cash flow.

My passion for building homegrown businesses and creating jobs means that I want to know how political candidates plan to facilitate the success of growing businesses.

I personally know (Rep.) Jim Hall and have asked him many questions. I believe he has many good ideas and he is clearly committed to this area and it’s economic development.

Letter to the Editor: Vaccines - Elected Officials Should Not Feed Fear and Misinformation

on November 4, 2012 - 12:35pm
By Dr. Tom Csanadi, MD

As a health care professional who has dedicated my life to the health, well being and safety of children, I am deeply disturbed by a recent story published in the Los Alamos Daily Post and the comments made by (Rep.) Jim Hall concerning childhood vaccinations.

Hall said, “I’m concerned with this intensive business of hitting young children with these medicines in their formative years without fully understanding the consequences.”

As someone who has lived through the devastation of polio, measles, haemophilus, diphtheria, whooping cough and mumps it is stunning that he is

Letter to the Editor: We Can Do Better

During this campaign season we have seen many arguments against the proposed Los Alamos County Charter amendments.

We have not, however, heard much about how they will improve our lives in Los Alamos, only about how they will make us more like Santa Fe and Albuquerque in how we govern ourselves.

We can read and find out that the ballot questions contain multiple parts which will make petitioning for referendum, recall, and initiative more difficult.

We cannot take some of the parts without taking all of them, even if we agree with some.

We must also understand

Letter to the Editor: Jim Hall is a Trusted Leader

on November 3, 2012 - 8:20am
By Terry C. Wallace
Los Alamos

Representative Jim Hall is a true public servant; he has a long record of service on community committees, county government and state government.

Jim is deeply committed to bettering the lives of the citizens of northern New Mexico, and he has lived in our community for more than 35 years.

The hallmark of Jim’s long record of service is common sense and bipartisanship – whether discussing education issues, small business or environmental stewardship, Jim is a trusted leader.

I endorse Representative Hall to continue representing District 43 in the New
