    Mother became daughter’s hero

    For all the wrongs in the world once in a while a right is done.

    Mom had to rescue me at Wal-Mart. I ran out of oxygen. Had to abandon the shopping cart with the door greeter. When this oxygen stops, I am physically drained of oxygen from my body.

    Today is Veterans Day, when we honor those who served in the U.S. Armed Forces. To those who served honorably and, thankfully, returned home in good health, we wish to express our sincere gratitude for your service. But for those who sacrificed more than that, by serving and losing something in one of this nation’s many conflicts, we want to say a bit more.

  • Viles Foundation making a difference

    Talk about one individual or a single entity making a difference in a person’s life: The Viles Foundation Inc. (VFI) is that entity. It has certainly made a tremendous difference in the lives of 800-plus college bound students.

    Recently, the VFI celebrated its 50-year anniversary. Tribute was paid to this organization’s half century of service at a luncheon sponsored by the Viles Foundation Inc. Board of Directors, Bank of America-U.S. Trust and the New Mexico Highlands University.
