On Behalf of Mud (Hashtł’ishnii), our production crew and talent, I want to thank you for the news coverage you gave us while we were in Gallup, New Mexico.

Working across party lines to address the dental care crisis

E-mail Print PDF
As elected officials, it is our duty to listen to our constituents about the problems they face and work together to look for common sense solutions. We need to work across the aisle to find creative and innovative ways to do what the people sent us to the Roundhouse to do.

One of the biggest problems facing New Mexicans is a lack of access to dental care. It doesn’t matter if you live in a remote rural area or right in the middle of one of our cities, our dental care system isn’t getting people the care they need in a timely manner, if at all. A recent workforce report found that over half of all counties in New Mexico are dealing with a shortage of dentists, especially in...

Don’t fear Gallup Land Partners

Dear Editor,

As I am currently traveling abroad in Japan I have enjoyed staying abreast of Gallup news via your great website.  I am taking the effort to write this letter out of concern in regards to your coverage of the proposed trails/recreational area on the Northside.

I am disappointed at what appears to be odd coverage of this exciting proposition for Gallup.  To be specific your coverage doesn’t seem to talk about any of the positive attributes that this project could bring to our residents and visitors.

Instead the coverage merely talks about the tax decisions the county is making on this project, and then ruminates on the dangers that may possibly exist out...

How Rep. Ben Luján is in the pocket of the Sugar Cartels

Dear Editor,

Congressman Ben Luján (D-NM-3) is in the pocket of the nation’s beet and cane sugar cartels!  Luján continually votes to maintain the U.S. Sugar program.  Why? It is really quite simple, Congressman Luján received well over $53,000 in political donations from the sugar cartels since coming to Washington in 2009.

Thanks to Rep. Luján and others, the U.S. Sugar Program continues. The Sugar Program is a Soviet style command and control scheme that restricts planting and imports. This inflates the price of sugar in the United States to almost double the world price. So, when you go to the store to buy a snack cake or anything sweetened, you pay more!

Letter to the Editor: The Time is Now to Expand NM PreK

E-mail Print PDF
The New Mexico Early Childhood Development Partnership (NMECDP) recently spent the day in Gallup. The day included a visit to Rehoboth Early Childhood Center and a lunch and community conversation at the Gallup Community Service Center.

NMECDP is focusing on a multi-year initiative to expand the state-funded, voluntary state PreK program to every 3-and 4-year-old who wants it. According to KIDS COUNT, 45.5% of McKinley County’s children, ages 0-5, live in poverty.  Only 49.6% of McKinley County’s 3 and 4-year-olds are enrolled in PreK. For some children, this means that they are entering kindergarten so far behind that they will never catch up.

The time is NOW to expand NM...
