Secretariat: The horse that built a community

E-mail Print PDF
Secretariat is considered the greatest racehorse in American history. In his book, author Lawrence Scanlan called Secretariat The Horse God Built. Indeed, if you haven’t seen Disney’s Secretariat I highly recommend this powerful and enjoyable movie.  However, as a matter of practice I tend to look for the hidden...

Tax law doesn’t alter definitions of independent contractor

E-mail Print PDF
The new tax law passed by Congress in December 2017 aims to lower taxes for everyone, but proponents cite its overwhelming benefits to businesses. Under the new law, companies — including sole proprietors and workers in the gig economy — can deduct 20 percent of their revenue from taxable income.

This provision alone could disrupt formal relationships between employers and workers, increasing the number of people who define themselves as independent contractors. But employees who wish to serve their former employers as independent contractors should know that even though tax laws have changed, the rules governing working relationships have not: Independent contractors still must...

McKinley County Community Members,

We take all threats seriously no matter how the threatening information comes to us. When a shooting or bomb threat is made we immediately call law enforcement and follow their lead on the investigation. If a student is found to be the perpetrator involved in the threat we will remove that student from our school and use the extant of the law to deter their reentrance. In addition, if an adult is found to be the perpetrator...

Is there anything left in this world that isn’t disposable?

On Christmas Eve, Ron Toahami Jackson, photographer, artist and co-founder of Indigenous Horse Nation Protector Alliance (IHNPA), found six puppies, about 4-6 weeks old in a box at the Old Navajo Dump.

Mr. Toahami also runs Ron’s Rez Dogs Rescue. He already had as many as he could care for.  He posted on our joint page IHNPA. Knowing Ron’s situation, I offered to foster the puppies and teamed up with Four Corners Pet Alliance.

Babette Herrmann,  who is the founder of Four Corners Pet Alliance, was also fostering five tiny pups, dumped in a box on the side of the...
