The agenda was full on Feb. 25 at Don Diego’s Restaurant as about 150 veterans met in a regular meeting to talk about what is going on with some of their issues.

Dr. Eunice Muskett, a Nurse Practitioner at the Gallup CBOC, spoke on the need for veterans to focus on positivity. Muskett recently injured her leg and has...

I didn’t have PTSD, but I had chronic depression and adjustment disorder,” he explains. “There are a long list of other things that can wrong with you mentally. For some reason, the media, and social media just lumps it all in together. It is completely inaccurate and it drives most of us insane.”

Getting the correct diagnosis is very important to the road back to society and it takes a lot of support from family and friends to help the Veteran understand and make the right decisions. Decisions to self-medicate is not the answer but a doctor can decide if the condition warrants proper medication for short term or even long term.  Medication gets a bad rap many times and if...

I attended the recent Big Foot Seminar; having earned a science degree (forestry) and having been to and completed graduate school (Forest Ecology and Silviculture) where I took classes such as non-timber resource mgt., systems ecology and population dynamics I was curious to see how two individuals with Doctoral Degrees would present this topic.  They were believable.

Central Montana, NE Idaho, Maine, Georgia and Alabama, Oklahoma, Arizona and New Mexico. I’ve hunted in most of the areas to include the Hell...
