  • Nuestra Historia - The aftermath of the Magee saga

    The Magee affair made a shambles of a great political dynasty, ruined one jurist forever, propelled another to power, set the tone for hardball politics in San Miguel Count, and resulted in a political order that prevailed here for several decades.

    Through the storied characters of that saga — burdened as they were by the foibles of human frailty — we have tried to recount a fascinating era in Las Vegas history.

  • Getting richer on Americans’ backs

    Where are the jobs?

  • Suggestions for emergencies

    I recently had a medical emergency at my house and I’ll have to admit that, despite living in the country, the response time was fair.

    I know we have good EMTs on board right now, but Mora County is pretty spread out, and there is always room for improvement.

    I know I’m not in office anymore, but what happens in Mora County has a big effect on me and all the citizens. I have a few suggestions that could very well help to save lives.

  • 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.

    It seems the City needs to pay for some kind of  of gas valve. What’s the problem?

Makwa is demanding the university pay it $3.2 million for work it and its subcontractors did and for the profits it would have made if allowed to complete the job.
