Dear Publisher/Editor Herrmann:

On Behalf of Mud (Hashtł’ishnii), our production crew and talent, I want to thank you for the news coverage you gave us while we were in Gallup, New Mexico.

The combination of film crew and talent thoroughly enjoyed being in Gallup and on the Navajo Nation during the three days of production. It was a learning opportunity for us all and a great place from which to convey our story.

Following the production of Mud on September 9-11, this past summer, our team went immediately into an arduous schedule of post production editing...

One of the biggest problems facing New Mexicans is a lack of access to dental care. It doesn’t matter if you live in a remote rural area or right in the middle of one of our cities, our dental care system isn’t getting people the care they need in a timely manner, if at all. A recent workforce report found that over half of all counties in New Mexico are dealing with a shortage of dentists, especially in...

Don’t fear Gallup Land Partners

Dear Editor,

As I am currently traveling abroad in Japan I have enjoyed staying abreast of Gallup news via your great website.  I am taking the effort to write this letter out of concern in regards to your coverage of the proposed trails/recreational area on the Northside.

I am disappointed at what appears to be odd coverage of this exciting proposition for Gallup.  To be specific your coverage doesn’t seem to talk about any of the positive attributes that this project could bring to our residents and visitors.

Instead the coverage merely talks about the tax decisions the county is making on this project, and then ruminates on the dangers that may possibly exist out...
