Las Cruces Passes Resolution in Support of Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF)

Sep 18, 2018

Commentary:  The Las Cruces Green Chamber of Commerce applauds the Las Cruces City Council for voting 5 to 0 on Monday, passing a resolution urging Congress to permanently reauthorize and fully fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). LWCF is our nation’s most important program to conserve irreplaceable lands and improve outdoor recreation opportunities in every state, including New Mexico. However, LWCF will expire on September 30 unless Congress acts to reauthorize the program before then.

During a gathering at a student’s house, Kavanaugh pushed her into a bedroom, locked the door, pinned her down — along with an accomplice — attempted to disrobe her, and placed his hand over her mouth. She feared that Kavanaugh was going to ‘inadvertently kill’ her. She managed to escape and fled.

Look Beyond The Headlines On The Refugee Crisis

Sep 16, 2018

Commentary: We should keep in mind our role in creating the conditions refugees are fleeing. 

For example, U.S. actions in 1954 had lasting impacts on Iran and Guatemala.

Mohammad Mossadegh became Iran's Prime Minister in 1951. A genuine national leader, popular and competent – and intent on land reform and nationalizing the oil industry controlled by Britain. The U.S. (C.I.A.) and Britain engineered a coup in 1954. The Shah of Iran agreed only when the U.S. told him it would go ahead without him. Many Iranian leaders were executed. U.S. and U.K. support for Shah Reza Pahlavi was a major factor in the 1979 Iranian Revolution. Any surprise that (after overthrowing Pahlavi) Iranians held Americans hostage in our embassy for 444 days? And still distrust us? They remember a past we've forgotten.
