    Vegas has a serious loose-dog problem

    I recently returned from Albuquerque’s Run for the Zoo 10K.  It was a great race, but when people ask how my training went, it’s a different response.

  • Just a Thought: Let go of the past and fully experience the future

    Along highway 70/380 just west of Hondo on the north side of the road facing west is a large white billboard standing all by itself with one word printed in big black letters. The word is “Forgive.” It is virtually impossible to miss for every driver heading east.

    I do not know who is paying for the sign, but it has been up for some time. Neither do I know how much traffic travels by the sign daily. What I do know is that the one word sign contains much wisdom.

  • Another Perspective: New Mexico has a ‘Dr. Holly Abernathy’ problem

    In 2014, The Wall Street Journal explored the ways that Obamacare’s expansion of Medicaid was “straining some health-care systems that already don’t have enough doctors and staff” and challenging “medical practices’ bottom lines in ways that lead them to turn some away.”

  • Palabras Pinturescas: Queen Mary’s Farewell Dinner a real feast

    It wouldn’t be springtime in our Rockies, and more particularly here on this old ranch  if we didn’t have at least one baby calf on a bottle. This bottle baby was born during our last snow storm, and his mother developed post partem psychosis, so elected to totally ignore him. This condition is rare, caused by an imbalance of hormones after birth. Thankfully, we have the warm sheds, corrals and chute to hold this belligerent cow that has to be milked daily, just to feed her baby.

    The presentation of “Into the Woods” by the HU Singers (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) was outstanding. The duo of Daniel Torres (Cinderella’s Prince) and Stevin Alvino (Rapunzel’s Prince) in “Agony” was particularly delightful.  Thanks to Andre Garcia-Nuthmann, the music director, and the entire cast for an entertaining evening.


  • Dispatch New Mexico - Police work is tough, but it has to be scrutinized

    It’s tough to be a cop these days.

    It always has been, but in today’s climate it’s particularly difficult. And it’s not just nationally, it’s local too, right here in cities and towns across New Mexico.
