Multigenerational workforce can be greater than the sum of its parts

The generation gap of the early 21st century is different than the one that led sociologists to coin that term in the 1960s, when young-adult baby boomers were advised not to trust anyone over 30.

Today’s workplace might include people in their late teens up to their 70s. Managing that multigenerational mélange presents...

‘Service Hero’

E-mail Print PDF

I was presented with the 2016 Choice Hotel’s International Service Hero Award. This award is presented to only one Choice Hotel’s employee per year, and when you consider there are over 6,000 Choice Hotel’s in the United States alone, well, that’s pretty cool and a great honor for me, my hotel, and for our community.

I am honored to have received this award and will continue doing what I do to help our community and to help all veterans.

The August non-binding referendum saw a favorable vote for curbside recycling with an added fee tacked on to their monthly utility bill.

McKinley Citizens’ Recycling Council continues to educate the public on the value of curbside residential recycling and has initiated a petition drive to place a binding commitment on curbside recycling on the March 2017 ballot.

This petition is for placing an...

Rituals have power and can assist us through challenging times. In Santa Fe, the burning of Zozobra or “Old Man Gloom” kicks off the Fiesta weekend. It’s a chance to put all your frustration, anger, and sadness into the puppet that’s lit on fire. If you can’t make it to the capital, consider making a ceremony of your own that banishes the gloom. Madame G wishes you well.


Aries (March 21-April 19)

You may feel a little stuck. Maybe you’re in a job you don’t really like or maybe the shine is simply wearing off. If you’re running low on the energy you had during the Spring — don’t despair. It’s actually good to slow down and reassess. What do you really want...
