    Houston Chronicle on the border being more secure than it was a decade ago (Dec. 17):

    Staff disappointed in school board
    The staff at Rio Gallinas are disappointed to know that the West Las Vegas School board is reflecting such scrutiny, when, just a few weeks ago, they refused to show up to a meeting hosted by PED for our school improvement plan. When we have asked for support from west, we have a history of receiving nothing, and yet, $339 seems to be enough of a reason to raise public concern.

  • Is there a Santa Claus?

    Editor’s note: The following editorial, written by Francis Pharcellus Church, was published by The New York Sun in 1897. While it was written more than 100 years ago, we believe its message about believing in things you cannot see is as poignant today as it was in 1897, so we are reprinting the holiday classic. Merry Christmas.

  • Make holidays less stressful

    Editor’s note: The following editorial is being reprinted from the Commercial-News of Danville, Ill.

    As Christmas and New Year’s Day move closer, it seems as those everyone’s stress levels spike higher and higher. Before you know it, a time that features joy and peace becomes a season of frustration and anger.

    The local American Red Cross chapter recently offered a few ways to make the holidays less stressful for everyone. The list includes:

  • Dispatch New Mexico - An oil-based economy hits you coming and going

    It’s almost laughable, the way Americans just can’t win with gasoline prices. If they go up, it’s money out of our pockets, and if they go down, it’s money out of our investments.
