Letter to the editor: Expulsion of drunks, not jail

E-mail Print PDF
If WE choose to ignore reality and simply go about our own business, reality has a way of hitting us in the face. The governor and Mr. Munoz are dead set on l-o-n-g-e-r sentences for the problem drunks. Reality tell’s us that the drunk population will continue to grow eternally. longer sentences and a never ending supply of problem drunk’s would mean that the tax payer’s would N-E-V-E-R stop paying for all of the medical, dental and eye glass needs, shelter, utilities, beds, clothing, shoes, food and eventually all burial expenses, of ALL of these problem drunks.

Get back to ordinary

There’s a lot to be said for being out of the ordinary. There may as well be, since those of us who fall into that category generally have a hard time passing for typical.

But ordinary is not an all-or-nothing matter. Every so-called ordinary person, when you get to know them well enough, will have some pretty unusual qualities, for better or for worse.

This attention will bleed into your verbal and written communication patterns. Madame G suggests you enjoy life precisely (as it is) at this moment. And if you must have your latte at exactly 120 degrees, no one will judge you too harshly. Drink up!


Aries (March 21-April 19)

If you experience a sudden disappointment or find that you accidently let something slide, don’t despair. To err is human. It’s not what happens that defines us — it’s how we respond to it. Madame G suggests you lean into your family and get strength from their support...

LEDA program boosts local economic development

E-mail Print PDF
TUCUMCARI - The city of Tucumcari generates $110,000 each year for economic development projects from a local tax on gross receipts, and the community gets lots of mileage from it.

In 2015, the city collaborated with the Greater Tucumcari Economic Development Corporation to invest locally generated tax revenue in four private projects through a process allowed by the Local Economic Development Act.

Tucumcari Mountain Cheese Factory received $141,830 in local LEDA funds to improve wastewater treatment for its expanded facility in return for a pledge to create 15 new jobs.

Buena Vista Labs secured $70,000 to enlarge its eyeglass lens manufacturing facility and retail outlet.
