The costs of living in paradise are catching up to Silver City where gasoline and grocery prices have always been 10-20% higher than in New Mexico's freeway towns. Roadrunner has turned into a monopoly and should be brought down to size and back to reality. I hope the Silver City community can resolve this huge issue.

I guess I'm struggling to understand why people think a literally free lunch is not paid for by somebody somewhere.

Roadrunner has to buy the trucks, the fuel,(which is on the rise, by the way,) and cover the wages of the drivers, the processors of the food and even the growers of the food. Overhead costs money, and those costs have to be passed on to somebody somewhere.

It's only fair the welfare recipients pay SOMEthing for a change. Many of these people are also receiving other taxpayer-funded handouts. Time to make changes.

Boo hoo to Stacey Cox.
She had the opportunity seven years ago to hire a proven grantwriter and fund-raiser, but was too self-consumed to act.
Now, the poor and the hungry suffer because she obviously is not a leader, a fund-raiser or truly caring for the population she should have been serving.
A very sad commentary for the once proud Community Action Agency.
