    Honor Mora teacher
    Another school year is over, and students get a much-needed rest.

    Many teachers and other staff have taught at Mora Independent Schools, including myself. I attended and graduated from Mora High School. I had very good teachers, and when they died, I wrote a special poem for each of them, as I did for (Stuart) Beck from the Las Vegas Optic. In fact, his family used my poem on his obituary card.

    I remembered him this past Memorial Day, as I did my teachers. They all did a good job and they are in a better land.

  • Babbling Brooks - Hey, kids—Change teams until you win

    By Jason W. Brooks

    AI don’t watch a lot of pro basketball.

    In fact, sometimes, I’m embarrassed that I don’t recognize a player, until I think about how long I usually go between games I fully watch on TV.

    Needless to say, watching this year’s NBA Finals, I recognized the top stars on each team, and no one else. I recognized Kevin Durant, whose Golden State Warriors have received plenty of nationwide and worldwide air time the past few seasons.

  • Dispatch New Mexico - Wind energy has taken flight

    Travel across the Texas Panhandle and you’ll see the evidence of an up-and-coming industry that’s making Bob Dylan prophetic. “The answer is blowing in the wind.”

    Earlier this month I traveled the 175-mile stretch of Interstate 40 that spans the northwestern reaches of Texas, and was impressed by the sheer number of wind turbines that cover the landscape.

    Mora Co-op vote

    My name is Jerome Lucero and I am a retired Electrical Engineer whose background includes working for Public Service Company of Colorado for approximately 28 years. In addition, I was the General Manager For the Mora San Miguel Electric Cooperative from April of 2005 to April of 2006, but as is the case in Northern New Mexico, I only lasted as the Manager for one year.

  • ‘Poor’ Eric Trump

    By Connie Schultz, professional in residence at Kent State University’s school of journalism, author and wife of Ohio U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown.

    Recently, the president’s second-eldest son went on national television and dropped all pretense of what we knew had never happened anyway.
