“Gallup Day of Giving draws hundreds” - Dee Velasco, Vol. 5, Issue 243; Nov. 29 :

A charity event in Gallup drew sizable crowds, reminding us that there are many people out there who want to do a good deed for someone in need.

“Too drunk to care?” - Sun Staff, Vol. 5, Issue 239, Nov. 1:

This, pardon the pun, sobering look at the number of child abandonment cases rising along with the number of alcohol abuse cases around Gallup could, and should, make one reconsider picking up a bottle if they have little ones that are depending on them at that moment.

“Shots at the skate park” – Cody Begaye and Babette Herrmann, Vol 5, Issue 237; Oct. 18:

One of the most alarming stories to come out of Gallup this year. This reminds us that gun violence can, unfortunately, take place at any time and anywhere.

“Hard work pays off for Tiny Tots Pageant” - Dee Velasco, Vol. 5, Issue 227; Aug. 9:

The Gallup Inter-Tribal Indian Ceremony is one of the biggest events of the year, and this event drew plenty of talented kids to compete for one of its biggest honors. The photos alone should melt your heart.

“Two vets, three sodas, and a notebook” - Beth Blakeman, Vol. 5, Issue 218; June 7:

This look at the Rockin J Reawakenings Ranch and how they use equine therapy and dogs to help people struggling with mental disorders possibly helped steer people towards a healing option they may have not been aware of before.

Like last year, a lot of good stuff and no shortage of candidates!
