Letter To The Editor: SB-203 Has Potential To Poorly Serve Los Alamos And Other Counties

I believe SB-203 has the potential to poorly serve New Mexico, especially smaller counties like Los Alamos. “One size does NOT fit all.” The needs and requirements of Bernalillo County (pop. 674,221; 1,161sq mi) are not the same as those of Los Alamos County (pop. 17,798; 109 sq mi). As written, the proposed bill fails to provide for the varying needs of the diverse counties in New Mexico, especially Los Alamos.

In Los Alamos, as per County Charter, the Sheriff has no real law enforcement roles or duties.

Professional quality mineral makeup is a wonderful way to help clients look years younger.

Mineral makeup is the preferred cosmetic recommended by dermatologists, plastic surgeons and skin care professionals. Doctors even use these minerals to camouflage surgical procedures.

As an Esthetician I like to offer my clients, cosmetics after performing procedures such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and facials. There are virtually no contraindications for wearing this type of makeup.

Minerals are well suited for aging clients.

Pastor Granillo: Rules, Rules, Rules

When we were kids, my mom had rules that we had to follow. They were nothing out of the ordinary: be in by 6 p.m. on a school night, always let her know where we were, no dessert unless we ate all our vegetables, do our chores and homework before going out to play, etc.

Like I said, there was nothing really out of the ordinary about them, but my siblings and I sure hated having rules. I couldn’t wait until I was an adult and I would be free from the oppressive rule of my parents.

Letter To The Editor: I Am Also A Victim

on February 5, 2016 - 10:06am

By LAHS Student

I am a victim of the nude photo scandal at the local high school. I however have a different view than that of the “Betrayed” news piece I read earlier today.

I, being a male, have been a victim. At least twice a week I have recieved nude photos from girls I didn't want. I tried to get away from them, changing my phone number, my Snapchat, my email address. They wouldn't stop.

These girls seem completely obsessed with me seeing pictures of their bodies. Never did they ask me if I wanted to receive them.


Letter To The Editor: Posting Photos On iCloud Could Be Child Pornography

Since most of the students at LAHS are under aged, the posting on the iCloud web could be considered "child pornography".

There are laws against such behavior! Federal and local authorities should be acting. iCloud accounts should have controls!
