Casey Roberts earned an MBA at the same time he was learning the family trade: welding. Today, the Las Cruces man and his wife, Chancie, own Mesilla Valley Metals, a manufacturer of pipes, structural steel, farm implements and custom-ordered metal products.

“My family has always been in the welding business,” Roberts said. “My dad was a rig welder in Farmington, where my uncle on my mom’s side owns a big fabrication shop. I always enjoyed making something and seeing results at the end of the day.”

As a welder, Roberts worked with metal all the time. In Aug. 2011, he decided to start a business selling the raw materials of his trade. At first, Mesilla  Valley Metals operated...

Congressman Ben Luján (D-NM-3) is in the pocket of the nation’s beet and cane sugar cartels!  Luján continually votes to maintain the U.S. Sugar program.  Why?

The Sun is in Scorpio, Oct. 23- Nov. 21. For those born under this sign, extremes are common.  This is the sign of death and rejuvenation. Superficial dealings won’t do.

Aries (March 21-April 19)



If you find your dreams are wearing on you, remember this is when it’s about to get good. Just when you feel like giving up, that’s right about the time you’ll succeed. Let that be a lesson to you. Instead of giving up and stepping away from the platform, reassess your plan. Take a step...

E-mail Print PDF
New Mexico is home to more than 160,000 veterans, and about half of them are under the age of 65. For those former service members interested in operating businesses, state and federal agencies can help with business formation, certification and contract acquisition that levels the playing field for vets that have spent their careers out of the private sector.

Veterans come to the private-sector workforce with a lot to offer, including advanced training in specialized fields such as logistics, security, information technology, personnel management and administration. They understand the complexities of doing business with the U.S. government and the importance of following instructions...
