  • Fun do-it-yourself Easter mints

    By Alison Ladman

    A little retro and a whole lot of fun, cream cheese mints are the perfect way to keep little hands busy during Easter dinner preparations.
    Make up the dough, then let the kids play around with different flavors and colors (or not, if you’re trying to avoid pink and green hands). They also can form the mints in a variety of shapes. Consider making lemon mints, classic peppermints, or orange cream mints. You even could do mocha mints with coffee and chocolate extracts.

    Evil eye. Magical fright. A sick soul.
    These are all afflictions usually treated by traditional Mexican healers known as curanderos. And this summer, an Albuquerque museum is planning an exhibit on the magical art of curanderismo, or the practice of traditional Mexican folk healing.

  • Another Perspective - Reforms will help us compete

    At the beginning of the session, I called on the Legislature to pass reforms making New Mexico more competitive with neighboring states. The mandatory cuts in Washington, D.C. will disproportionately hurt our state, and while we will always fight to protect our labs and bases, we must simultaneously work to diversify our economy by building a stronger private sector.

    I’m pleased that by passing the New Mexico Jobs Package, we reached a bipartisan compromise that will help our economy grow by leveling the playing field with surrounding states.

  • Nuestra Historia - Why Highlands sits east of the Gallinas

    Many months ago, when we began our present tale of two cities, a variation of today’s article appeared in Nuestra Historia, to illustrate the great divide that existed early-on between East and West Las Vegas. As we conclude the story of the founding of Highlands University ­— to bring full circle the early struggle for the school — we present the column again, especially for those readers who have followed the story with interest, but may have missed the previous narrative.

  • Our Watershed - Its condition and threats

    Editor’s note: This is the fifth in a series running over several consecutive Fridays. It is written by members of the Hermit’s Peak Watershed Alliance, which seeks to foster land stewardship in the Gallinas, Sapello and Tecolote watersheds.

    When compared with heavily populated and largely urban or industrial watersheds, the Gallinas Watershed is in relatively good shape. But, if we expect it to continue supplying our water in to the future, we have to face some realities and maximize its performance and resilience to future threats.

  • Cardinals a mix of experience, youth

    The success of the Robertson boys’ basketball program in recent seasons has meant a consistent early-season test of the Cardinal baseball team’s depth.

    With several key teammates extending their hoops season by a couple weeks, the rest of the RHS sluggers have had to pick up the slack until the team is made whole in mid-March.

  • Dons, new coach are road warriors

    Chemistry shouldn’t be an issue for the West Las Vegas baseball team this spring.

    Much of the Dons varsity has ample experience playing together and for Ryan Gabaldon, who’s taken over the program as head coach.

    Not only had Gabaldon been a varsity assistant and middle school head coach for several years, he’s also coached many of his current players since they were members of his La Plaza Little League Cubs and All-Star lineups.
