  • Dispatch New Mexico - Four years deep into a newsworthy exchange

    Four years ago this month, I started a news-sharing service with 11 New Mexico newspapers. The newspaper you’re reading this in, more likely than not, was one of those founders.

    Four years ago, I had just ventured out as a media entrepreneur, and this new exchange was my first big project to take on as a self-employed freelancer. I named it the Community News Exchange, or CNEx for short, and turned it into a weekly service, where every participating newspaper contributed to and received stories and photos from throughout the state.

    I relocated to Cheyenne, Wyo., after my term as county commissioner was over, but I still own land and pay taxes in Mora County. I go stay there a while on occasion, and it bothers me to see that there is such poor medical services available for emergencies.

  • Just a Thought: Making the most of 22 acres of worthless land

    By Rick Kraft

    If you ever get the chance to visit San Francisco, plan ahead. I strongly recommend that you visit a 22- acre piece of land that has a long, rich history and has served many purposes.

    This property was originally settled by the Spanish and then became United States property in 1848, followed by the State of California in 1850.
