  • Go North; the rush is on

    The following editorial was published in the New Castle (Pa.) News on March 9.

    It’s happening. But not the way people thought it would.

    In recent weeks, people began streaming from the United States into Canada. But they’re not disappointed Democrats, disgruntled Californians or, for that matter, anyone who might have voted for Hillary Clinton.

  • Work of Art: ‘For want of a nail...’

    There’s an old rhyme that clearly illustrates the need for things working together. It reads: “For want of a nail, the shoe was lost. For want of a shoe, the horse was lost. For want of a horse, the rider was lost. For want of a rider, the battle was lost.

    The health care industry is the bright spot in New Mexico’s economy, adding jobs at a time when other sectors are shedding them, but it does even more by supporting the culture of our communities and providing hope to generations of New Mexicans.

    By Rick Kraft

    It is funny how a thousand marbles can help keep life in perspective.  Like an ever-flowing waterfall, life is constantly coming at us from upstream and then flowing past us. We finish one day, go to bed, and then wake up and another day is upon us.  

    Life marches on whether we want to recognize it or not.  Yesterday has been spent, but today is still available. Although none of us knows how many tomorrows we have to spend, we assume we have many.
