Richard McInturff has caused so much mismanagement in Deming. I wish Mayor Silva would do what he promised when he ran for mayor and make Deming Government run correctly not the way it is now a Mafia city run by "godfather" Richard McInturff.

I am curious why the local hospital is never investigate for their billing practices, their sloppy care and inability to keep good nurses. Someone must be in their pocket!

Silva and McInturff areas one and sticking their nose everywhere it doesn't belong. Meddling is becoming necessary as funds disappear.

Meddling into the Co-op's business by a City Manager is way out of line. Good for Mr. Fletcher!

This is a WARNING to other local business folks.

I tried to think of one good story about Mr. McInturff but came up blank. I even went as far back as his banking days with Home Federal Savings and Loan and his tenure on the Mainstreet Board in the 1980's/1990's. Same attitude, same personality, same temperment but with a higher paycheck and more power.

Well, I'll be retiring again in a couple years and moving to the Ranchettes maybe I could run for Mayor. I don't know any of the local politicians so I don't owe them any favors. What do you folks think? I will be bringing a south east Kentucky mannerisms mixed with being a minister. I know it's a mix in controversy in it's self but I wont plan on but one term and then it will be up to the people to keep it cleaned up and in check.

Silva is a preacher and so far it has been one disaster after another as far as the citizens are concerned. Secrecy and mayhem behind the scenes! His congregation follows him like sheep and votes the way he tells its members to vote. Thanks to Silva, we now have Oleo ( who is as dense as they come) replacing one heck of a commissioner. What a loss for Luna County!!!!
Religion and politics - no thank you! You might be better as mayor than Silva but how can I be sure that you you will not come up with a bunch of sheep to do your bidding in church and in city hall.

You're most probably just as good of a candidate as any others may be. When that time comes what would you say is your political background,if any, and what qualifies you to run for Mayor ? Thank you for serving our country, but just being a retired marine may not be enough. Oh, just forget I asked, what difference would it make anyway, just take a look at some others we've had in office.........what the heck, just go for it !!!!

Well, the catholic's need saving too. As far as political background, if you stay in the military long enough you’re pretty much qualified to be President. I have always made it a practice to listen to my people, I know I don't have all the answers but if you listen to your people you learn a lot more so you can have more answers. I have never been a shoulder rubbing kind of guy, I prefer to take the best route to get the job done right and God help you if you don't do it right the first time. Seriously, I was only kidding about running for any office. I may consider a position assisting in a church but that would be enough.

Remember, church and government should be mixed. This country was created by Christians. It grew by Christian influence and character. This is a uniquely Christian nation. Only since the government has started promoting a separation of our Christian heritage from government has this country become weaker. When the United Stated government gave God the boot we started failing financially, morally and structurally. Vote God back into office as head of our government and we will grow once again.

Christian nation? Define. Christian in the sense of the Apostles' Creed, the Baptismal Covenant? the kerygma : Christ has died, Christ has risen, Christ will come again? The founders were greatly influenced by relgious and spiritual principles,especially those of Christianity,more than is generally acknowledged. Yet they did not agree on the Constitutional relationship of relgion and state. But today, there is little agreement upon even the broadest umbrella that defines a universal Christian church and the application of Biblical principles to political issues is highly selective, congtroversial, and subjective. While I would think it would be good if this country was a Christian nation, I can't see that as currently the case.

This country was founded by Christians. It grew into a great nation by God's gift to a uniquely Christian people. The simple fact that Christian moral standards are the very backbone of what built this once great nation is self explanatory. When an abusive government evolved in this country and tried to evict God from the moral standards that built the United States the country began decaying. The abusive government now in place needs to be unseated and replaced by a government subjective to the people in which they serve. As a whole we are a Christian nation under siege by a disrespectful government. The people have become blinded and afraid of the abuse the present government inflicts on those who disagree with it's practices. Yes sir, we are a uniquely y Christian nation founded by a uniquely Christian people muddied by the disease of corruption. Search your heart and ask God for the truth and you shall have it my friend.

Fire the entire bunch and recruit to hire better people. This is the only answer because of all the inbreeding and deals that have gone on in Luna County and Deming.

Jose, I admire your desire to clean your own house ("Fire the entire bunch") but are you sure that's the best answer? While it would require replacing a lot of folks I think many should be retained. I think if the people took back their place in keeping this nation growing by peaceful demonstration it would change. Show up at local government meetings, write your Congressman and Senators and speak out when they start screwing things up but do it peacefully, set the example for them. Being peaceful does not mean being a push over, be firm in your demands and be part of the solution not the problem.
