Northern New Mexicans urged to challenge BLM Utah monuments plans

E-mail Print PDF
National Monuments belong to all Americans. And, if the Trump administration’s plans to illegally slash two national monuments in Utah go unchallenged, then no public lands are safe, and especially those in New Mexico. April 11 and April 13—after just four public meetings in rural Utah held late last month—mark the last...

Letter to the editor: Appreciating Gallup’s thoughtful citizens

To the citizens of Gallup

At the beginning of August 2016 my husband and I were visiting Gallup as part of our Route 66 trip. On the morning of the 3rd August, my husband had been taking photos of the old Coronado motel when he lost consciousness and hit his head on the ground.

Several people stopped to help and a man phoned 911 and stayed with me; another young man in a big wheel pick-up was also very kind and helpful (my memory is hazy as to physical details as I was in a bit of a panic trying to keep my husband still).

To all these thoughtful people, I would like to extend my gratitude and appreciation. Our heartfelt thanks to the ambulance crew, the doctors at Methodist Hospital...

E-mail Print PDF
The Santa Fe Business Incubator (SFBI) has plenty to show for its 20 years of existence: More than 145 companies have taken flight from the ever-expanding facility at 3900 Paseo del Sol in Santa Fe, and 1,000 new jobs have been created, 49 of them in the last fiscal year.

Paying attention to the business climate and adapting to opportunities explain SFBI’s longevity, according to president and CEO Marie Longserre. SFBI is “an environment that celebrates entrepreneurship, relationships and connections,” she said. “We reduce barriers and create networks.”

Community support, reliable funding sources and collaborative partnerships with economic development organizations sustain...

E-mail Print PDF
What goes up must come down – but don’t let that get you down. It’s not up to you to decide what you can appreciate and what you should ignore. Life is all about the compromise of letting go and allowing new and better things into your life. Madame G recommends that you spend some time with yourself this week. Take care of yourself and more importantly, learn to forgive.

 

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You’re heading down an interesting path. You don’t know what’s heading your way, but it’s important to prepare yourself. Dwell in possibilities! Now is the time to let loose and learn all you can. You’re not weak for trying new things or for wanting a different path than...
