On the Mesa Facing North: A Big Night for Local Democrats

ON THE MESA FACING NORTH

Column by Greg Kendall
 
Los Alamos Democrats celebrated election results that were very much to their liking. A group of them were seen cheering the national, state and local wins at the new Pajarito Brewpub & Grill late Tuesday night.
 
With Obama taking the Presidency,  Martin Heinrich taking the former senate seat of Sen. Jeff Bingaman and Ben Ray Lujan returning to the House of Representatives, the national scene gave local Democrats something big to cheer about, and they did.
 
In Los Alamos, Barack Obama defeated Mitt Romney, Heinrich

Letter to the Editor: Vaccines – My Body My Choice

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 personal physicians
