Cancer (June 21-July 22)

It’s your time of the year to shine Cancer! It’s your birthday season and with the sun and fervent Mars joined at the hip in a galactic two-step, you’re feeling rather bold and brazen. You may even feel like sassing your boss, spouse or your buddies. Stop there. That behavior will serve to...

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Madame G is feeling refreshed after a psychic retreat at the XYZ Ranch.

Fact: We guys tend to try being too manly for our own good. Remember a couple of weeks ago when singer Enrique Iglesias sliced his hand on the blades of a drone flying over his concert stage? Consider that Exhibit: A.

The man actually continued to perform for half an hour with a blood‐soaked t‐shirt wrapped around his hand before deciding maybe he needed to see a doctor.  Turned out it was more than a cut. Iglesias broke his hand and required reconstructive surgery from the blade slices.

Here’s another fact: according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), men are 24‐percent less likely than women to have visited a doctor within...

Dear Editor:

Thank you for your publication of the valuable stories about the Jim Harlin Community Pantry.

The first story about the HOPE Garden grants credit to Youth Conservation Corps.  I am the long-time director of that excellent City of Gallup sponsored youth workforce program.  Over 15 years, Gallup YCC has completed a number of worthwhile projects of durable community benefit with a trained, equipped, supervised, and paid youth workforce recruited from our community.

Corps members are appropriately proud of all their work –adventure trails, safe routes to school, gardens, restoration projects.  Gallup YCC built the Brickyard Bike Park alongside City Parks & Recreation workers and...
