New Mexico kids get shortchanged

We all benefit when New Mexico’s classrooms have the resources they need to educate our children. After all, today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders, entrepreneurs, and workforce. But our educational outcomes are not what they should be, and part of the reason is that we’ve...

Madame G guide to the stars Week of March 2

E-mail Print PDF
Today the Sun shines in Pisces. The sign of the fish goes with the flow, shows compassion, and works on the inner self. Take notice and consider going on an adventure. You may find the idea of romancing yourself a little silly, but it might be just the ticket. Madame G recommends you become someone whom you’d want to date. Enjoy yourself.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You’re a loyal friend. You work hard. Don’t kill yourself with drudgery. Now may be the time to let go of negativity, surrender and heal.  Perhaps to even seek out a compassionate guide, mentor or therapist. Get outside and enjoy the day. A few mental breaks will help you out more than you think.

Taurus (April 20-May...

Letter to the Editor: 2020 Mayoral election

E-mail Print PDF
In both 2011 and 2015 Mayoral elections, I wrote letters to all the candidates for the position of Mayor. Only candidate Yogash Kumar visited with me in 2011. In 2015, after it was determined that a run-off election was needed, I was able to have a conversation with both McKinney and Galanis before the run-off election.

I also wrote several letters to the local papers which all were published. The last letter I wrote talked about my conversations with McKinney and Galanis. In that letter I talked mainly about “Vision for Gallup” for the next 5-7-10 years.

So, here are the main 5 priorities I felt needed to be addressed. There has been some progress, yet I find that all five still...

Madame G guide to the stars Week of Feb. 24

We benefit from the Sun in Pisces until March 19th. This mutable sign offers insight into the emotions of generosity and empathy. Buyer beware, you may also find an increase in self-pity and feelings of victimization. Madame G wishes you well. Learn to examine emotions as part of you, but not as you. Feelings aren’t facts. Consider how you influence the energy of others.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Dear Aries, the Sun is almost under your sign. Until then you must endure the emotional “touchy- feely” warmth of water. Your more fire-like nature may reject this yin-like quality, but it’s exactly what you need. Every creature has elements of yin and yang, even you. What I’m...

Will legalization of marijuana save the U.S. economy?

E-mail Print PDF
The bandwagon is overloaded with politicians and people that actually believe legalizing recreational marijuana is the answer to poverty, the golden ticket to funding education, and the Holy Grail of government woes. How about growing and selling pot to bankroll Social Security, social programs, and healthcare? We can pay off our zillion dollar national deficit with sales from the wacky weed.

Shazam! Pot parades for saving the planet. Instead of politicians promising “A Chicken in Every Pot,” there will be “Cannabis in Every Airtight Container,” or “Pot in Every Pot.”

“The legalization of cannabis has significant implications for state economies, as well as the national...
