Despite recent budget fix, higher education is still underfunded

E-mail Print PDF
Anyone given a chance to make an investment that is guaranteed to give a positive return year after year would do it. Even when we’re not talking about the stock market, investments with a high rate of return make sense. Public higher education is one such investment because it improves the workforce and helps families...

Aries (March 21-April 19)

New experiences are a challenge. They confront your basic fears: are you good enough? Why am I doing this? Though it may seem easier to stay in the status quo, remember: if you “aint” growing you’re stagnating. Don’t panic! That is rule number one. The second, is enjoy the journey. Get out of your head and start living in the moment. You’ll do just fine. You’re ready. Go!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Life is full of unexpected joys and sorrows. Of course, it’s all in your perception. At one point losing a job you hate, but can’t afford to lose may seem like a disaster. On the other hand, maybe it forces you to look towards a brighter future. You...

Our hats are off to Gallup-McKinley County Schools Interim Superintendent Mike Hyatt and the members of the entire Gallup-McKinley County Board of Education.

The school district pulled off a major logistical feat with the recent announcement that kids attending McKinley County schools won’t be required to pay for school supplies starting the fall of 2017.

The school supplies decision is final and won’t change in the near or distant future. That means free pens, pencils, notebooks and lab fees forever!

“It’s a cost-savings measure and there are no strings attached to it,” Hyatt told the Gallup Sun. “This takes the cost-factor of parents having to buy school supplies and...

There may be no event more exciting, yet terrifying, than college or high school graduation. After spending countless hours staying awake in lecture halls, surrounded by peers with shared ambitions of one day being successful in all aspects of life, graduation day should be the epitome of joy.

The days of imbibing unhealthy amounts of NoDoz and Red Bull before a final exam are done. Everything will be worth the struggles and sacrifice after receiving that piece of paper, right?

That’s the question that a lot of college and high school graduates have right now. The job market, no matter the job, is still tough and not everybody is cut out for college. It is a hard task to get a foot...

Madame G guide to the stars WEEK OF JUNE 2

The Sun is firmly in Gemini and today Venus conjuncts Uranus. You may feel, as if you have ants in your pants. The urge to move and wander may very well be overpowering. It’ll settle down on Sunday (a little). Madame recommends that you get outside and enjoy the pre-summer breeze. Take this time to enjoy yourself and spend time with the pets and family. Go for it!

 

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You’re ready to get the show on the road. You can’t see into the future, but you’re ready for a wild ride. Take this moment to enjoy the moment. Rest. Relax. You may find it necessary to study a new book or take up a constructive hobby. Consider learning a new language. It never hurts to...
