Welcome in the age of Aquarius, as the witty and effervescent sign takes center stage. This is an excellent time for individual emancipation.

An extensive audit conducted in December 2016 has found the Diocese of Gallup to be in full compliance with national guidelines for preventing abuse and maintaining a safe environment.

When the extent of sexual abuse cases and allegations came to public attention in 2002, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) met in an unprecedented conference in Dallas TX. The result was the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People, a set of procedures and guidelines for spotting and preventing abuse in all dioceses in the United States.

To ensure that the requirements – or “norms” – of the Charter are followed, the USCCB partnered with outside investigation...

It’s never too late to live the life you’ve always wanted.

Aries (March 21-April 19)



Remove that stick up your butt. This discomfort is of your own making. Jen Sincero points out in her work, You are a Badass, that it’s not your fault you’re messed up, but it is your fault if you stay that way. You’re more than DNA. You’re more than circumstances. You can take up the...

Details can be weighty when renting commercial space

E-mail Print PDF
Renting a commercial space is a move many entrepreneurs postpone as long as they can, because it’s one of the biggest expenses and most consequential commitments a startup or young company faces.

A commercial lease binds landlord and tenant to a variety of promises. A well-executed lease can benefit both parties, but a hasty, vague arrangement can break an embryonic enterprise.

A renter rarely performs a...
