Was it near the homeless camp there where they found the body a few month back?

Reports of the fire have been on two ABQ TV stations, but not a word of it in the Carlsbad, NM Current Argus on-line edition. What a joke of an excuse for a newspaper. Why any one would pay for it is a mystery.

Since there are posted signs to not trespass where that homeless camp is and the cops all know about it...why don't they do anything to prevent this? I've walked around out there...it's disgusting. With trash and laundry hanging on trees, piles of junk and old furniture, it's a disgrace to our city. We need a homeless shelter here and the cops need to enforce the laws. The firefighters can't do a boot drive but homeless can ask for money at Wal-Mart on a daily basis (and Churches too)

the tresspassing sign is not for the homeless....since they live there...its for you dummies that think they can go wandering in the sticks and better not find anyone camping out there and making them feel uncomfortable when they are out enjoying their walk....the homeless there are actually not homeless because they consider this their home....this has been the way it is for more than a century....people living in the same area as these camps and along the higher ground for more than that....that is why the city doesnt mess with them and you should not get offended that they are there since that is there home....

What a stupid comment to post! Do these homeless pay taxes on this land? We do! So you are saying that some people are entitled to live without paying taxes? What an idiot!

no....you are the idiot....you completely missed my point....;i will restate it since its above your comprehension that someone would have something that you in your White entitlement world feel that they dont deserve....there have been people....mostly of minority living along the riverbanks here in Carlsbad for more than a century and no one has made it an issue since thats the way it has always been....how do i know...because my family settled in here over a century ago and owned all the land where Furrs cafeteria sits....and since that was an arroyo much of the time many people lived along that area also...all the way down the river...and since you brought up taxes....how much exactly do you pay in taxes...13.000 yearly like me???? i doubt you pay anything and then you probably get someone elses back with earned income for your illegitimate brats....the first thing a white person wants to do is claim something....mine...mine ....mine....just let people live the life they choose and quit being judgemental....and also i used the word there and their several times and only messed up once...phone didnt know the difference and when i use voice command it does what it wants to anyway....so swim your way back to England and let these people alone...

I'm 'white people' and I personally love Carlsbad. I wouldn't go so far to say that all 'white' people act nor feel the eay you're stereotyping them out to be. Again, I am white and have donated to the homeless. I do not feel that I am anymore entitled to anything than the next person. Carlsbad will always have a place in my heart for their small town appeal and family atmosphere. God bless!

No, Ellvis, you're wrong on this one. It's mostly whites in that camp. Go take a walk down there. Yes, we have mostly non-whites that come by the soup kitchen but the vast majority of them have sheltered places to stay at night. The lower Tansill Dam camp are predominantly druggies/alchoholic washouts that hang out among their like-peers.

Another idiotic ignorant comment! You try to turn this into a racial issue? You are nothing but a bum and part of the problem! Yes, I'm white! I'm female, married and have children!We own our property and try to keep it nice! My husband and I both work and we do pay taxes...do you?

The homeless have a right to be there that is their home and no one can force them to leave! If those people on Juanita St and in that area don't like it let them find another place to live! Pack up your families and the the hell out!

i say that michele picks up elvis' fights when she feels "he" is running low on fuel. she makes up personalities and pretends to be everyone so she can take up all sides of an issue. this lady, dang.
if you notice, when michele will be inactive for a while, elvis gets more and more active. michele will respond to things directed at elvis, my theory is that she forgets who she is currently logged in as. and when they "argue" they end up on the same side of an issue. "he" seems to be the only one who she can talk to, and agree with! also- she seems to be the only one "he" likes on this forum, and for someone who throws around the race card "he" sure does like her, and her illegitimate kids he supports with "his" tax dollars.

Lol. I do not even know what you are talking about. I do not write under MLE1. So, where did I write to him at lately? I write under my registered name, you know the one I am logged in under. My kids are legitimate. Nobody supports my kids with their tax dollars. I have not been on here all day. I wasnt on here all day yesterday. But you think whatever, I just laugh.
