  • Dispatch New Mexico - Kids’ lessons learned from Trump’s rise to power

    Let’s talk about the kids in the aftermath of this presidential election.

    Little pictures have big ears, and a lot of children, according to a range of reports from all over the nation, have been frightened by Donald Trump.

  • Nepotism at Luna shameful

    The long-awaited audit of Luna Community College is finally complete, and, as expected, the picture it paints of the college’s president and its board of trustees isn’t very flattering.

    Indeed, it’s downright shameful.

    We wish we could say we are surprised by the findings of nepotism, cronyism and favoritism detailed in the audit report, which was prepared by the state Higher Education Department, but the reality is that everybody knew what was happening at Luna.
