Sitting alone at the counter of Cowtown Feed & Livestock along U.S. Route 491, Dudley Byerley, proprietor of the business, gazes out onto the store floor where a few customers browse.

Business is good these days, folks from around the area need dog food, vaccinations, horse feed, ranch supplies, and just plain good, old-fashioned advice on how to address issues with animals, and much of anything else, that occurs at the ranch.

“I get people from all walks of life and I have a lot of repeat customers,” he said. “I guess you can say I was born into this.”

Byerley, 61, was born in Oklahoma and moved with his family to New Mexico during the 1960s, during a time when Gallup...

2nd DWI, Aggravated

MCSO Task Force Superintendent Tammy Houghtaling was nearly hit at the intersection of McKinley and Montoya Blvd. Charley made a right turn, “at a high rate of speed,” nearly striking Houghtaling’s unit, as noted in her report. When she caught up with the vehicle, it had already ran a stop sign and wouldn’t pull over, that is, until it arrived at a residence, 511 E. Princeton Ave.

Charley said she was scared, as she was driving the vehicle without a license, registration, and the Interlock device installed, as required from her previous DWI. Houghtaling found a 12-pack of Steel Reserve on the...
