Transit buses could stop at municipal borders - Ruidoso News

WHAT YOU DO HAVE A PROBLEM WITH IS THE FACT THAT YOU APPARENTLY HAVE SOME PERSONAL VENDETTA WITH TRANSIT AND REFUSE TO POST IT. COULD IT BE THAT YOU ARE LOSING SOMETHING THAT BENEFITS YOU PERSONALLY BY TRANSIT BEING IN RUIDOSO OR THE DOWNS? JUST WHAT IS IT THAT MAKES YOU SO IRRATE AGAINST TRANSIT AND HELPING THE CITIZENS WITH TRANSPORTATION FOR ALL ASPECTS OF LIFE. TRANSIT IS NOT A LOW INCOME FORM OF TRANSPORTATION STICTLY TO BE USED BY THE LOW INCOME. I HAVE USED IT AND I AM NOT LOW INCOME. I HAVE NEEDED IT AND I AM NOT LOW INCOME. I HAVE SUPPORTED IT AND I AM NOT LOW INCOME. PUBLIC TRANSIT IS ACTUALLY A VERY WISE ALTERNATIVE TO ECOLOGICAL IMPROVEMENT, PARKING AND TRAFFIC CONGESTION IN MIDTOWN, A MEANS OF EVACUATION IN A CRISIS, AND FREEDOM FOR THOSE HOMEBOUND ...JUST WHAT IS YOUR REAL PROBLEM WITH TRANSIT... YOUR NOT GONNA GET AWAY WITH SAYING ITS BECAUSE YOU ARE BEING FORCED TO SUPPORT IT AND THEY DIDNT ASK YOUR PERMISSION...YOU SUPPORT ALL KINDS OF THINGS WITH YOUR TAX DOLLARS WITHOUT GIVING PERMISSION...NO, THIS IS PERSONAL FOR YOU...WHY???  (Dec 22, 2011 | post #15)

Transit buses could stop at municipal borders - Ruidoso News

i AM SO TIRED OF HEARING "ON A STUMP" PREACH ABOUT HOW TAXPAYERS ARE FOOTING THE BILL FOR TRANSIT AND WE SHOULD BE ASHAMED..SHE IS ALWAYS PREACHINGABOUT USING CHURCHES THAT PROVIDE THIS SERVICE...WELL "ON A STUMP" ...WHY DONT YOU POST THE CHURCHES AND CONTACT PERSON THAT WILL PROVIDE THIS SERVICE AN I WILL PERSONALLY SEE TO IT THAT THESE INDIVIDUALS GET THE INFO...CHURCHES, FRIENDS, FAMILY, ALL MEAN WELL..BUT THEY TOO CANNOT AFFORD THE EXTRA FUEL ANYMORE NOT TO MENTION THE RESPONSIBILITY...S O IF YOU KNOW A CHIRCH OR PERSON THAT IS WILLING...POST IT !!! I , AS A TAX PAYER , AM PAYING FOR ALOT OF PEOPLE TO DO ALOT OF THINGS...MOSTLY WITHOUT A CHOICE...BUT....BU T...IF I DID HAVE A CHOICE OF WHERE I WANTED MY TAX DOLLARS TO GO...ONE THING WOULD BE A PUBLIC SERVICE ORIENTED FUNDING ARENA...I WOULD WANT TO KNOW THAT THE TAX DOLLARS I WAS FORCED TO SHELL OUT WOULD PAY FOR THE GOOD OF SOMEONE TO SUCCEED OR HAVE A BETTER QUALITY OF LIFE... THATS WHAT TRANSIT DOES..."ON A STUMP", PAY ATTENTION...I WOULD RATHER HELP TRANSIT TO GET A SENIOR SOME INDEPENDENCE OR A SINGLE MOM A RIDE SO SHE CAN GET TO WORK OR A LOW INCOME FAMILY A RIDE TO THE STORE FOR GROCERIES SO THEY DONT HAVE TO CARRY IT HOME THEMSELVES. I DO NOT WANT TO HAVE TO MAKE A CHOICE BETWEEN NUTERING STRAY ANIMALS OR HELPING HUMANS... THAT I THINK IS INSANE...I WILL ALWAYS CHOOSE TO HELP MY FELLOW HUMAN BEINGS FIRST !!!!!  (Dec 22, 2011 | post #14)

Humane society receives grant to take on feral cat problem

It just amazes me that every time I turn around the Humane Society is recieving grants or funding from everywhere... Lets look at how this is a public service... Does it benefit the economy? The resources? The humans? Employment? Hmmmm...nope , just dont see it... Can you please explain to me why the new group on the Count Commissioners Throne felt it was best to give the Humane Society, Animal Shelter, whatever you wish to call it...funding and yet turn away funding for the FOOD BANK, TRANSIT, and many other HUMAN PUBLIC SERVICES....I believe the quote from several of the COMMISSIONERS felt it was best to go back to the good old days for help with these situations...let the churches, neighbors, friends, and so forth provide assistance to HUMANS in need...WELLLLLL...I think its high time those dang cats get off their lazy butts and began doing what they are intended for... catching mice...having kittens...hmmm what else??? Gosh ...The Animal Shelters just need to do as everyone else is expected to...Take those ferrel cats to their neighbors, and churches to provide their needs....Thats what the Commissionners want the HUMANS to do... Its only fair the cats do it too !!! I think each Commissioner that voted on denying Human services but agreed to fund the animals instead...Well they should be given a fair share amount of ferrell cats to deal with persaonally !!!  (Dec 7, 2011 | post #12)

NM hospital uses video conferencing in ICU

This is the best thing since peanutbutter!!! My husband is a VET and instead of having to travel to Albuquerque for every visit, the VA hospital in Albuquerque has begun utilizing video conferencing appointments via the VA clinic in Alamogordo. Soon they will begin a form of speech and physical therapy in the same manner...Its wonderful..considerable cost savings, not to mention the burden of travel for the patient...If your a VET or know of a VET that utilizes the VA medical system please tell them to check with their doctors... It is available for most any visit !!!  (Nov 28, 2011 | post #1)

Transit ridership up, funding up in the air - Ruidoso News

MAYBE ITS TIME TO TALK TO THE MAYOR OF THE VILLAGE. HE HAS COMPASSION AND A DESIRE TO HELP HIS CITIZENS. THEY HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE THAT IS NEEDED TO WORK WITH COMPLIANCE ISSUES AND ANY KIND OF GRANT WORK THAT IS NEEDED. TRANSIT IS HERE TO STAY. TOO MANY PEOPLE NEED IT AND USE IT. THE COMMUNITY NEEDS IT FOR EMERGENCY SERVICES ( EVACUATION OF CITIZENS AND TRANSPORTATION OF FOOD AND WATER TO FIRE CREWS) AS WELL TO HELP ELIMINATE THE HORRIBLE PARKING IN MIDTOWN. YOU GO AHEAD AND CONTINUE TO PREACH YOUR GREEDY IDEAS. i WILL PRAY FOR YOU TO HAVE YOUR VISIONS AND IDEAS CHANGED WHEN IT COMES TO "LOVE THY NEIGHBOR"  (May 16, 2011 | post #25)

County denies funds for Lincoln County Food Bank - Ruidos...

Safe ride will only transport Medicaid and it has to be medical. They are under contract with Presbyterian. You HAVE to be on medicaid to receive their transportaion. Not available to the public for public use. The Senior vans require you go to certain places on certain days at certain times. IF I wanted to go to the beauty shop tomorrow I would be out of luck and they do not transport on Saturday like Transit does. They will not help with transportation to the general public.  (May 14, 2011 | post #49)

County denies funds for Lincoln County Food Bank - Ruidos...

I have always beleived that it takes empowerment to succeed. To empower these people by providing food for their familys until they can get on their feet and to empower them by helping them with a means (Transit) to employment or education (ENMU) to succeed is a good thing. Then they become active contributing members of our town and county and become taxpayers that will be glad to tell you that without that little boost they could not have done it. Please look at the BIG PICTURE.  (May 14, 2011 | post #47)

County denies funds for Lincoln County Food Bank - Ruidos...

You may be on to something. If every church and support arean had a reference list of entities that could help those in need then maybe we could share the burden. I still think if the County can afford to give the HUMANE society $30,000 then they could of helped out a few other PUBLIC SERVICE programs. Why not give the humane society 10,000 and then split the rest with the ones they declined a dime to. Heck, $2,000 would be better than nothing.That would by alot of staples for the food bank. They could get beans, rice, flour, sugar, and maybe some potatoes. I just dont understand the hate and discontent of the ADVISOR. $30,000 for animals and ZERO for the food bank, Transit, and many others... ANIMALS vs HUMANS..How hard of a choice is that?  (May 13, 2011 | post #30)

Transit ridership up, funding up in the air - Ruidoso News

I have noticed recently that on each post I make, within minutes its judged with a SPAM, DISAGREE, or clueless. Now, I cant swear to it but If its who I think it is, it would be so much more professional to let others speak their opinion or share their knowledge on the subject. I can assure all of the bloggers on this subject I am very aware of the rules and regs with this service and would never post something if I wasnt absolutely sure of the details. So lets play nice. Deal??  (May 12, 2011 | post #12)
