Parent unhappy with principal switcheroo

To the Gallup McKinley School Board:

It has come to our attention that you have recently made and are making huge changes in staffing some of the schools. We realize that some of these changes may be necessary or for the good of the schools, however we are unable to see the benefits of changes being made at and affecting...

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You’re feeling full of bright ideas these days. Maybe you want to interview someone famous, like Patrick Moraz, the keyboardist for the Moody Blues. Yes, the iconic 70s band with the curly-haired keyboardist, and dreamy rock ballads. Madame G, hee hee (blush) is showing her age. But, you need to go in a unique direction this week.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

TMI = Too Much Information. You’re usually the strong one, bullish and full of pride. Nothing bothers you, not even your Uncle Martin flashing his stained dentures to scare the kids. But, lately you’re a tad sensitive to people telling you too much information. You don’t want to know that your friend...

Schaller conducts his own curbside recycling ‘analysis’

E-mail Print PDF
I have been following the numerous city meetings on curbside recycling since last summer, asking questions, taking notes, following up with extensive research and even providing a condensed feasibility study from previous articles I have written in local publications.

I recently discovered the Sustainable Gallup Board already reached a curbside decision several months ago. Since neither the city council nor SGB will grant me twenty minutes speaking time, I am presenting my comprehensive analysis in writing.

I was formerly a Sierra Club hippie on a spiritual quest to save the planet in the 1970s and 1980s. In 1975 I studied wind energy at EWSC. In 1985 I instructed GHS sophomores on the...

Enjoy basking in the glow of your happiness this week. Times have been tough the last couple of weeks, and you were really sinking into a gloom, zombie type state –  just going through the motions of life, and basically sucking the life out of the party. Now this has passed, share your happiness with others. Go bowling for fun.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

For you, this week is like Valentine’s Day every day!  With the full moon in Scorpio, you will spend much of the week trying to mesmerize and win over your mate with your romantic wiles and wicked good looks. Don’t go overboard with the flowers. Be different: try buying some dual pogo sticks or go on an...

Reflection on New Mexico’s Fifty-Second Legislature

E-mail Print PDF
The 2015 Legislative Session started on January 20th at noon and ended at noon on March 31st.   This session marks my 25th session as a member of the House, including regular, special and extraordinary sessions. My standing committees for each of those sessions are the House Appropriations and Finance Committee and the House Transportation and Public Works Committee.

Each Session starts about the same way, the legislators living outside of the Santa Fe area move to Santa Fe a day or two before the session starts, bright eyed and anxious for the session to start.  It is not unlike children going back to school after a long summer. You can feel the excitement among the hotel staff and...
