Governor’s Medicaid plan means better healthcare for McKinley County

E-mail Print PDF
New Mexico currently has a shortage of physicians in 32 of its 33 counties. Large swaths of McKinley County lie within the Navajo Nation, the largest Indian reservation in the United States. Nearly 80 percent of McKinley County’s 75,000 residents are Native American. New Mexico leads all other states in Medicaid...

Letter to the editor: Thoughts on Trump

E-mail Print PDF
Love the man or hate the man, Donald Trump’s message to New Mexicans did inspire hope and excitement for our state’s future. Will we see the state turn Red in the next election? Maybe; Only time will tell. I want to express a few thoughts with you before I dive into, the experience of seeing a sitting president in my state, from 20 feet away.

This piece is a perspective piece, that I feel needs to be written out and put out there for consideration. Right now, I will tell you, trying to persuade someone to one side or the other on the political spectrum will not work.  We are all complex beings with emotions and ideas that are all completely our own. Accepting each other’s ideas...

Sunday morning, Labor Day weekend, I was trying to wash a stack of dishes while my two year old and his puppy were on a tear of destruction behind me. We just got over a tantrum when he pulled salsa out of the fridge just to spill it, and fought for at least a half hour when I demanded he was responsible for cleaning it up. With all this other chaos, all I could think of while trying to wash dishes, was the Housing Authority article I read the night before.

I understand, of course, public housing needs to do checks to stay up to codes and standards. Of course it helps ensure health and safety and welfare of all tenants. But I am lucky that no one is coming to do a housekeeping inspection...

You should reorder a few values in your life. It’s time to think outside the box. Madame G recommends that you learn a lesson from the wise rattlesnake. When they are babies they release all their venom at first bite. This will kill their prey. But, they have nothing left. Adult rattlesnakes don’t do this. They know to slow down and strike carefully. May you do the same.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is the world of the future. There is no other time but now. Stop looking to an unknown world to be perfect. Enjoy what you have. Live, laugh, and love! That’s all you really need to know.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Instead of focusing on the details, take a moment to stop and look...
