Public Service Recognition Week May 6-12

Dear Editor,

Across the country and in communities like Gallup, government employees serve and protect us every day. Throughout the year, but especially during Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW), May 6-12, we should gratefully acknowledge their service.

Be Encouraged

Events around us in the state, nation and world might tempt us to throw our hands up in despair. Through the news we seem the many results of sin that seems to be out of control, violence and murder, theft, various forms of addiction. Sometimes we even look at our own lives and become depressed because regardless of how hard we try our actions sometimes harm ourselves and others. We are often left wondering where God is in the midst of all this evil and chaos.

In chapters 13-17 of the gospel according to the apostle John, Jesus shares important teachings with His disciples on the night before His Crucifixion. By the time we reach chapter 14, Jesus has given them troubling news: one of...

Trump’s salacious cavorting with Russian hookers and their Golden Showers, along with American porn stars and 17 women (some even while they he was married to two other women and “First Lady” Melanija (Knavs) Trump) should call into question the...

Internet purchases challenge local budgets

E-mail Print PDF
As budget-conscious consumers increasingly opt for the convenience and economy of online shopping, states like New Mexico are ramping up pressure on internet-based retailers to collect and remit the taxes states need to provide essential services.

While Amazon.com recently agreed to charge New Mexico consumers the state portion of the gross receipts tax (GRT), more change is needed to erase what states see as an unfair advantage for online retailers over local merchants who are required to collect and remit the entire combination of state and local taxes.
