Letter To The Editor: County Government Overreacts ... Again

First the County wants to fine the residents of Los Alamos for weeds and peeling paint. Now they want to fine residents for keeping their trash bins outside? This is a growing trend with our local politicians. All it takes is one little whiny cry baby to file a complaint and the County overreacts.

Every time the County can’t control their wasteful and excessive spending they raise the Utility Rates and Property Taxes. Every time there is a trivial complaint they have a “knee jerk” response without thinking things through.

Los Alamos Police Department Det. Sgt. James Rodriguez remembers police officers coming to speak as guests at his high school in Loving and says he found what they had to say about the job intriguing. Even when he studied mechanical engineering at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Wash., law enforcement was always in the back of his mind.

Letter To The Editor: Regarding Old Smith’s Building

I would like to follow-on with Kathy Willcut's good idea (link); the County can use that space for some of it's recreational initiatives!

I was dismayed to read that the Kroger company has such wide latitude in choosing which businesses can move into the old Smith's space.  However, Kroger owns the land, so they can do as they please. But with the County pressing forward with the recreational initiatives (made famous ... or 'infamous' by the Rec Bond debate), why not use that perfectly sited, wide space with ample parking for one of it's multifunction centers?
