  • Health care needs reform

    The following editorial was published in the Minneapolis Star Tribune on March 24.

    Congressional Republicans’ first serious attempt to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act suffered a crushing defeat Friday with the last-minute cancellation of a House vote on the GOP proposal. While this is a serious setback for President Trump’s agenda, the young administration and its congressional allies should not back away from the critical work of reforming the nation’s costly, complex health care system.

  • Work of Art: What music do you like?

    We spent much of Sunday evening at the United World College, attending a student recital, which featured some excellent instrumental and vocal offerings.

    We went as guests of our get-away student, Belén Sogo Mielgo, from Madrid, Spain.

  • Rangers on the rise

    Don’t look now, but that Mora baseball team is back on its way up the ranks in Class 2A.

    The Rangers, coached by Manuel Benavidez, won the GEO Clayton Yellowjacket Classic over the weekend to improve to 7-2 overall. The Rangers now gear up to play former district foe Pecos — a squad that finished as state runner-up in 3A last May — on Thursday in the first round of Santa Rosa’s tourney.

  • Raiders set to relocate to Sin City

    The Associated Press

    PHOENIX — Sometime in the not distant future, they will become the Las Vegas Raiders.

    Until then, likely in 2020, Mark Davis’ team belongs to Oakland. Well, sort of.

    NFL owners approved the Raiders’ move to Las Vegas 31-1 at the league meetings Monday. Miami was the lone dissenter. Davis insisted the club his father, Hall of Fame owner Al Davis, built into a champion — in Oakland and Los Angeles — should still be considered a part of the Bay Area community.
