IIs a drug rehabilitation center really the best place for people convicted of violent felonies? Or is prison the better option for both rehabilitation programs and keeping the public safe?
The temperatures in Taos have dropped below freezing now in October.
Those of us lucky enough to have houses, warm clothes and a source of heat will be fine.
But people without homes or places to stay once again must seek shelter, a way to stay fed and warm - or a way to survive outside.
Business owners have to carry the financial risk of building a venture, as well as taking care of customers, finding and retaining employees, keeping up with ever-changing regulations and staying current with advancing technology.

My name is Melissa Martinez and my husband, Richard, and I reside in Taos. In October I had a health scare which required my admission to Holy Cross Hospital.

Natives will never stop speaking for Mother Earth. As in Standing Rock, Taos Water Protectors are saying, "Respect this precious gift from Mother Earth and God. Do not abuse it or overuse it."
Time is running out, comment periods on the Santa Fe and Carson National Forest plans close November 7th. It is vitally important that Taosenos comment in order that the Forest Services decision makers receive local knowledge and perspectives are considered in the plans.
There is some confusion surrounding the Carson National Forest's Land Management Plan comment process and we want to clarify a critical point: you do not have to pick only Alternative 3 if you support recreation, or go "all in" on Alternative 4 if you value wetlands. This is a false choice. You can have both. Be specific about what parts of each alternative you prefer.

I am a recovered alcoholic. I am all for someone taking responsibility for their own actions and seeking inpatient treatment for drug or alcohol addiction. I am, however, against Rafael Orozco, a violent gang member, and other bullies like him from him using addiction as an excuse to avoid prison.
I am privileged and excited to officially announce that I will run in the 2020 election to retain my seat on the town of Taos Council.
