Editor,

Gallup, New Mexico, called “Nanizhozhi” in Dine’ (Navajo), is indeed a “crossing point” that all roads lead to and where a rainbow of cultures live and thrive. Obviously, it places an emphasis on the Native American culture and settings in just about every aspect that can produce a profit in the “Indian...

On Aug. 4, prepare for the awesome power of the Last Quarter Moon in the Sun sign Leo. Prepare for a “crisis of conscience.” Do not fear this transformative power. Allow it to lend you strength. Now is the time to sort through what works and what doesn’t. You have the power to change your life. Madame G salutes you. We’re all in this together. God speed!

 

Aries (March 21-April 19)

First, I would like to express my respect for the men and women of the Gallup Police Department.  They act and perform professionally and with courtesy, I have a high regard for these individuals.  My wife (former business owner) and I called upon them for their investigative services at least nine times between November 23, 2017 and May 26, 2018.  On at least three occasions we have just decided not to bother the police, surveillance cameras did not prove to be a deterrent.

With regard to the excessively high crime rate in Gallup, at least three pods at the local jail were empty in May even though there appear to many individuals who need that room and board.  Two years ago, room...

Editor,

Friday the thirteenth was a day to be reckoned with by 12 Russian Glavnoye razvedyvatel’noye upravleniye (GRU) officers of the foreign military intelligence agency of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, three days before the meeting between U.S. president Donald Trump and Russian president Vladimir Putin, a former Komitet gosudarstvennoy bezopasnosti (KGB) master spy.

The 12 Russian intelligence officers and three corporations were indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller for crimes related to hacking and publicly releasing Democrats’ emails, as part of an effort to interfere with the 2016 presidential campaign in which Hillary Clinton...
