  • Drug war revived

  • Work of Art: Less of a terrorist

    Maybe my greying mustache and my already-greyed hair make me look more presentable to personnel with the Transportation Safety Administration at major U.S. and foreign airports. I say “maybe” because it seems I was hassled less than ever before on this go-round,  a trip to Iceland.

    By Beth Urech

    Remember that childhood saying, “Men may work from sun to sun; women’s work is never done.”  Let’s amend that to read: “Women’s work has now begun.”

    In the last few weeks, I have been struck by the women I’m meeting and the work they are doing. Please men, don’t stop reading. You know I like men, especially my male readers, but for now let me tell you about women whose passion for social justice is making a difference in New Mexico.

  • Another Perspective: Storrie Project deal a waste

    By Arthur Ray Gallegos

    I fail to understand why the City of Las Vegas does not thrive. We have a mild seasonal climate, a major interstate highway, Amtrak Station, two postgraduate institutions, several radio stations, golf course, major hospital/dental services, endless real-estate opportunities, an airport to accommodate small jets, diverse recreational opportunities, low crime and what I consider a kind, quaint and friendly atmosphere.
