April 30 cleanup coincides with Earth Day

From his view just outside of the back door of his business, amid a pile of litter and discarded bulk items, Knifewing Segura, CEO and founder of the Downtown Conference Center on Coal Avenue, said he can only speculate how long the debris will stay in one spot.

Hopefully, not long, Segura muses.

The Comcast cable company downtown cleanup, slated for April 30, is a step is a big help, but definitely not a cure-all.

“There are days when it’s worse than others,” Segura said. “Some people complain, but not nearly enough that should be complaining.”

Segura said the area is a hot spot for drunks and vagrants and that people dump...

Areas of Gallup High left in shambles

GALLUP – A few seniors apparently took pranks a little too far on Senior Day this week and one area principal says he’ll find out if criminal charges are warranted as a result of the situation.

Jack McFarland of Miyamura High School said a pre-planned activity on April 19 whereby seniors engaged in pranks carried the matter over to some late night vandalism.

“It looks as though after these few people went home for the school day and after the planned activity, they came back to school and somehow got into the building,” he said. “We’re talking about no more than three, four, maybe five individuals.”

Candidates roar ‘…turn our House back to blue’

IYANBITO – With a June primary and a November general election looming, several members of McKinley’s and New Mexico’s Democratic Party met April 15 at the Iyanbito Chapter House “…to turn our House back to blue,” as one of those attending the two-hour affair said.

Shirley, who dubbed the meeting a “Get Out the Navajo Vote” campaign, asked each candidate running...

Sitting alone at the counter of Cowtown Feed & Livestock along U.S. Route 491, Dudley Byerley, proprietor of the business, gazes out onto the store floor where a few customers browse.

Business is good these days, folks from around the area need dog food, vaccinations, horse feed, ranch supplies, and just plain good, old-fashioned advice on how to address issues with animals, and much of anything else, that occurs at the ranch.

Byerley, 61, was born in Oklahoma and moved with his family to New Mexico during the 1960s, during a time when Gallup...
