School is out for Spring Break, but games continue

E-mail Print PDF
The old saying, ‘no rest for the weary’ might well apply to high school kids everywhere, who are given a certain amount of time off from their studies, twice each year, only to find the more athletic ones remain tied to schedules for their sports and activities, regardless.

Spring is here, and so is off-roading fun in the sun

E-mail Print PDF
Spring started on Mar. 21 and in Gallup we don’t look for the first robin – it got blown away by the 60 plus mph winds – but we wait for the first event at the OHV-MX Park on Hasler Valley Road. Wait no more, that event starts April 2-3 with host Round #3 of the NM Trials Association, and a re-opening of the track.

Dave Steadman and Damian Silva have revamped the track and the crowd on Saturday and Sunday should be pleased with the changes. The Saturday practice session (see schedule below) will have a well-groomed and watered track, weather permitting.

Any riders wanting to register for the RRMS 2016 Club Membership are invited to join in the fun. Knock the cobwebs off your...

Parents should always be concerned about ‘their kids’

E-mail Print PDF
It is often difficult to distinguish between normal parental concern for our kids and the almost paranoid attachment some have for their offspring. I have three children, and find myself wavering across that line in both directions, all the time. It is ‘normal’ to be concerned about those we bring into or raise in this current society. It’s never an easy job!

So this is my tribute to all parents that truly care, even as they slip over the line. Those in charge sometimes forget this; some parents care, albeit in different ways. Communication is key, within the family and/or school.

The parents also need to understand there are certain things out of the reach of their children...
