    While many will associate Mike Esquibel’s name with the horrific way he died this past Thursday, those who knew him are remembering him as a good friend who loved the adventure of new experiences yet stayed fiercely loyal to the people and places of his hometown.

    Esquibel died after his pickup truck was struck by a train on a crossing north of Las Vegas.

    Funeral services were scheduled this morning at Our Lady of Sorrows Church, followed by a gathering of his friends at the Plaza Hotel.

  • COLUMN: It's in the Cards

    The headline for the sports pages of Feb. 2 has already been written: Cardinals Defeat Steelers; Arizona Breaks 61-Year Drought.

    Well, the headline is written, at least for a slew of area folks who predict an Arizona victory. Why? The key reasons are “They deserve it” and “They’re closer.”

    Super Bowl XLIII is scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 1, in Tampa, Fla.

  • EDITORIAL: From this day forward

    Today, reality sets in. Washington D.C. in no longer a celebratory center, it’s back to being the nation’s political hub — beginning with executive orders that will undoubtedly stir the fires of discontent among the new president’s loyal opposition.

  • Problems found at regional authority

    The state auditor’s office last week revealed that the Albuquerque-based Region III Housing Authority was a “center of abuse and management.” But State Auditor Hector Balderas said the state’s other regional housing agencies also had big problems, including the one in northeastern New Mexico.

  • He's a Fort Union soldier and it's Hell!

    It’s the windy and freezing cold. It’s the constant drills. It’s the continuous monotony of buildings needing repair and animals needing care and feeding.

    There are perhaps 500 dogs wandering around the fort.  Soldiers number as many as 1,600. With civilians the total human population rises to 3,500. Food is so bad that when the soldier threw his dinner meat to a dog, the dog just turned away and left it. The officers steal from the men and the men steal from each other.
