  • Palabras Pinturescas: Praising works of Tony, Anne Hillerman

    Oh, what fun it is to hear from my readers! I just received a beautiful photograph of Edith and John Moore from a reader who thought I’d appreciate it. Do I ever, thank you! And a couple of weeks ago long time friends dropped by for a visit and left a book with me to read. We share the love of well written fiction, who-done-its written, situation in New Mexico.

    ARCHDIOCESE FACING MORE LAWSUITS
    When will it end? Three more child sex abuse lawsuits were filed last week against the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, including one that alleges that a monsignor who previously worked at Immaculate Conception Parish in Las Vegas sexually abused and raped a 6-year-old girl. The three new cases are in addition to 59 other lawsuits filed against the archdiocese by the same law firm in recent years. The lawsuits allege that the abuse occurred decades ago and that the victims only recently began to process what happened to them.

  • Dispatch New Mexico - Unconventional advice for this year’s graduates

    It’s that time of year, when just about every newspaper in the state gives front-page attention to at least one local graduation. They’re always a big deal, especially to those who walk across that ceremonial stage and the families they’re making proud.

    Graduations mark a transition in our lives, but sometimes I think it’s over-emphasized. Anyone who thinks a diploma or degree is a ticket to success is sadly mistaken. It’s just a ticket to ride; you still have to get there on your own.

  • Hillary quote not in context

    Editor’s note: The following editorial is from the Bennington Banner of Vermont and was originally published in that newspaper on May 12.

    Hillary Clinton took a beating in West Virginia, losing the state to Sen. Bernie Sanders in the primary held there May 10.

  • A work of Art: Have you tried a marathon?

    Getting the results of the latest Boston Marathon convinced me that my son Ben, 37, now living in Albuquerque, who used to run track at Wagon Mound High School, had done all right in the popular race, finishing with a 3:32:47 time for the 26.2-mile event. He came out in the 8,528th place.

    I’d been quite naive and uninformed about the marathon, believing that just about anybody with running shoes,  interest and desire could show up at Bean Town, get in line and race away.
