  • Animal Shelter people deserve medals

    The people who work at the Animal Shelter should receive gold medals for  helping me. (Recently, on a) Sunday at about 1:30 p.m., my Bretta died at  almost 13 years. She weighed about 100 pounds, a Bouviers.

    I want to thank two of my neighbors for helping me to get her prepared and I especially want to thank the three people at the Animal Shelter who helped me put her into three large plastic bags so we could put her in a freezer. The crematorium is pending.

And while the backstories — the personal stories that lead to the big showdown — add drama to the mix, in the pros it typically boils down to who wins and who loses.

  • An endorsement for pig-kisser

    We, the God-fearing citizens of Las Vegas, N.M., in order to provide for the common good, save our dignity, prevent insanity and civil disobedience, hereby endorse Tom McDonald for pig kisser of our community. He is just such a ham.

    We believe that Mr. McDonald (not Ronald) is most deserving of the honor of showing our community that, in many instances, pigs are people, too. We deal with pigs every day (no pun intended, Chief Montaño). No offense, Honey. ...
