    Las Vegas native Dominic Guerin graduated from the University of New Mexico School of Medicine Department of Family and Community Medicine Physician Assistant Program on Aug. 13, earning a master of science degree in Physician Assistant Studies.

  • All is right in my small world, and in my kitchen when the new crop of New Mexico green chile arrives in our local stores.

    Yes, the chile roasters have been parked by the store entrances for a while now, and there is no better smell, aroma anywhere to match this very special perfume.

    It takes an old fashioned wood cookstove to properly roast green chile, in my book. My wonderful neighbors and my mother always did it the same way.
