Gallup Police Department Lt. Rosanne Morrissette said she received a call at about 5:45 pm this evening that a deceased male was found west of King Dragon restaurant, 1212 U.S. 491.

Henderson said the project is something that’s been listed on the city’s Infrastructure Capital Improvement...

The Comcast cable company downtown cleanup, slated for April 30, is a step is a big help, but definitely not a cure-all.

“There are days when it’s worse than others,” Segura said. “Some people complain, but not nearly enough that should be complaining.”

Segura said the area is a hot spot for drunks and vagrants and that people dump...
