    Regensbergs not treated fairly
    Congratulations to the winners, and thanks to everyone who voted for the Regensberg boys. As my mother in law used to say, “Whether you win or lose you need not worry because you are rich. Your faith is a treasure no one can touch. So at all times and places give thanks for the Lord’s kind glory and honor are the Lord’s and remember that only one life it will soon be past and only what is done for Christ will last.”

  • Include educators

    Gov. Susana Martinez has made it clear that she wants to reform New Mexico’s education system, and we applaud that goal.

    Having an effective education system is critical to so many quality of life issues, economic development being chief among them. So it makes sense that the governor and her administration are making education a top priority.
