Letter To The Editor: Support Regional Transit GRT Reauthorization

on October 14, 2018 - 6:30pm
By PETE SHEEHEY
Los Alamos County Councilor

The citizens of four counties, including Los Alamos, voted in 2008 to authorize a 1/8 percen Gross Receipts Tax (GRT) increment to support regional mass transit. Although no ending date was voted upon, these counties imposed a Jan. 1, 2024 sunset date.

On this November’s ballot, we are asked to reauthorize the tax by removing the sunset date. I strongly support a yes vote to continue the high value transit services that it provides. For people here who don’t have a car or the ability to drive, good transit service is a lifeline.

Fr. Glenn: What Must I Do?

Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church

A beautiful Gospel reading in the Catholic Mass this weekend—one of the most poignant encounters in the scriptures. A rich man in fine clothes throws himself at the feet of a wandering preacher and his dusty band, obviously having heard of, or witnessed, Jesus’ teaching and miracles. Full of enthusiasm, he calls out: “Good teacher!”… but Jesus replies: “Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone.”

Jesus doesn’t want the man to get caught up in desperate hero-worship, as many do with charismatic leaders.
