‘Hot Pursuit’ lacks comedic sizzle

E-mail Print PDF
Rating «« out of 4 stars

Here’s a rather unfortunate situation. While every cast member of the new comedy Hot Pursuit is funny, the end result is a mediocre collection of hit-and-miss gags. It delivers a few chuckles during its short running time, but is the type of film that will be completely forgotten when you...

Carrying on a father’s legacy: Mother, daughter craft exquisite jewelry

E-mail Print PDF
For about three decades, Angeline Touchine stood along side her jeweler husband Ben, watching him mold silver and join precious stones together to create beautiful bracelets, rings, earrings, necklaces and more.

She would soon join in the business, helping him to polish and clean one-of-a-kind pieces, which give a contemporary feel to traditional Navajo jewelry.

More than a decade ago, that apprenticeship soon lead to Touchine crafting her own pieces. And she would be completely on her own when Ben passed away in 2013.

“I was there everyday from 1970,” she said.

However, breaking out on her own actually began when Ben’s health started to decline, giving her the...

It’s Saturday night at Coal Street Pub. There’s live music being played by the local folk band, 10 Minutes Max.

Ramon Chavez, Coal Street owner, is a musician who plays drums, piano and vocals. His love for music is obvious in his support of local acts that entertain the patrons of his pub.

“I started playing snare drum at Washington Elementary with Ken Holloway. He was my music teacher almost every year until he retired,” Chavez said, as he reminisced about his formative years in music.

He remembered a time when Mr. Holloway threw a chair across the room. It reminded him of the movie “Whiplash,” a story about a tumultuous relationship between a student drummer  and his...

Hidden behind the buildings that make up UNM Gallup lies a trail that seemingly takes me nowhere.  It goes up and down and winds around but every time I walk it I end up where I started. Or do I?

On this trail, magic can happen.  Often my journey begins with consternation or even depression.  But soon after I start, my senses take over and the beauty of this hidden natural treasure creeps into my soul. I feel the release of tension in my muscles. The sun shines down upon me and warms my body. My heart starts pumping with intentionality, working to get me where I need to be.

I see the colors of the red rocks in front of me: red, brown, yellow, and purple. Pyramid rock sits...
