One year left to graduate high school, a young woman with the whole world in front of her with endless dreams and potential – dreams of not only serving in the U.S. Navy and commanding ships but to ultimately become one of the most powerful women – takes a quick turn to becoming a prisoner – a victim of domestic...

Set Apart for a Purpose

“Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world.” John 17:17-18 (ESV)

In Jesus’ final hours, He prays for His disciples (those who follow Him with their lives). We can learn from this prayer Jesus’ priorities from what he asks of His Father in Heaven.

In our modern world, we seldom use the term “sanctify” or “sacred,” and it would help if we understood it better. To “sanctify” something is “to set apart for a sacred [holy] purpose,” “to make it free from sin.” Yet this still leaves the word a little foreign to us. Therefore, let us consider a similar example from the medical world as an...

Venus and Mercury are in Scorpio Oct. 9-31. Prepare for intense communications that are fair and balanced. This will be a welcome change from the chaos of the previous weeks.

Letter to the Editor

I am a veteran of the United States Army, having served four years in the Korean Conflict. I am 82 years old and I have served my country along with three of my brothers who are deceased. We served our country and we were honored to serve our country.

Having served our country, I am eligible for the benefits that come as a result of my service. Unfortunately, this service is very difficult to access.

In order to be served by the Veterans Affairs, I have to wait long hours to be seen by a provider. I have to arrange to have my family members transport me to the Albuquerque VA Hospital for specialty care. This is a two-and-a-half-hour drive one way and then I must wait 5 to 6...
