E-mail Print PDF
At the start of the New Year, millions of people across the United States will make weight loss a big part of their resolution.

Industry’s impact on the land and peoples of the four corners

E-mail Print PDF
As an indigenous individual residing on federally subsidized land, I often walk or drive the vast distance that crisscrosses the Four Corners region of Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico.

This dynamic piece of the American West has been my home in one way or another for many years. In the spring of 1970, a college friend and I hiked the colossal mesa ridge from southern Colorado to the upper ends of New Mexico. The intricate landscape had an abundance of natural vegetation, aquifer water seeping between rocks, a menagerie of animal tracks and birds’ nests, and a pristine horizon in all directions.

We were, however, not the people first to travel there as we crossed several...

Don’t let the influence of the chaotic First Quarter Moon frustrate you. This too shall pass. You’ve learned so much in the last year. Take a moment to reinvigorate your process. Think before your act. Your loved ones will thank you! They love you anyway, despite your crazy ideas...

Martin Heinrich, United States Senator for New Mexico

U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich, D-NM, issued the following statement on Dec. 20 after voting against the Republican tax bill in the Senate:

“Today Republicans have made it clear where their priorities stand. They’ve abandoned working American families while recklessly blowing up the deficit in order to reward their wealthy friends and corporations with a tax cut that they do not need. When this legislation is fully implemented, millions of middle-class families will face a tax increase.

“Republicans talked and talked about simplicity. But with all the loopholes and giveaways for special interests, Republicans have made the tax...
