    Take animal abuse cases seriously
    Regarding the mistrial in the case of the dog named Hubble, I don’t care who dropped the ball in this animal abuse/neglect case; the fact remains and appears as if our community doesn’t really take such cases seriously. This makes our city look as if we are living in the past when some people used to think an animal was just an animal with no thought of compassion.

  • Just a Thought: I come from a long line of love

    By Rick Kraft

    Every one of us knows a couple whose marriage has stood the test of time. A grandparent or great grandparent type couple who truly enjoy each other’s company after 50 or 60 years of being committed to one another. Truth be known, each of these couples has both weathered storms and experienced sunny days...

    I had the opportunity to attend a recent Michael Martin Murphey concert and to enjoy it from the front row. I have enjoyed his music over the years and have been able to attend several of his concerts over the decades. He is now 71.

  • Another Perspective: Solving our city’s water problems

    By Arthur Ray Gallegos

    All of the state’s irrigation ditches are diversions from the river basins that stem from an enduring Hispanic and Native American cultural ancestry that is part of the historical record long before New Mexico became a territory or was awarded statehood.

  • Investigation warranted

    We’re glad that state oversight agencies finally have Luna Community College under a microscope.

    Allegations of mismanagement, nepotism and cronyism have been raised at Luna ever since the college’s current board of trustees and president rose to power roughly two years ago.

    It’s not difficult to understand why when you consider the major policy shifts board members enacted and the decision to suspend their presidential search in favor of giving the job to Leroy “Huero” Sanchez, a man with a troubling history at the college.
