    THUMBS UP:
    PAIR FOR THE PANTHERS

    There could be so many places to start in praising the hard work of everyone committed to (or associated with) the Pecos High School boys basketball program. From the young men who set the actual screens and blocked the shots on the court to the adults who stood up for the program and led by example, to every screaming gradeschool-age supporter, it takes a special effort to win back-to-back state championships.

  • #meToo: Men can just listen

    In 2003, filmmaker Michael Moore spoke to an enthusiastic, supportive crowd, mostly University of New Mexico students, at Albuquerque’s Popejoy Hall. He took some questions, including one about abortion.

    Moore opined that he regularly “exercises his right shut the (expletive) up,” and lets women make their own decisions about their bodies and physical and mental health.

    There are plenty of helpful tasks men can complete to help further the“#MeToo” movement. One of those tasks is to be quiet and listen.

  • Find your destiny here in New Mexico

    As Aristotle is purported to have said, “Where your talents and the world’s needs meet, there you will find your destiny.”      

    This year three women who have found their destiny in New Mexico each received $1000 from the Las Vegas branch of the American Association of University Women, which annually awards scholarships to nontraditional female students studying at Highlands University.

  • Unhappy people produce unhappy people

    By Rick Kraft

    One crab in a bucket without a lid will climb up the side of the bucket and escape. If there are two or more crabs in the bucket, there is no need for a lid.

    You see, a single crab will see the opportunity of escape above and will climb upwards and succeed in reaching the top. You need to put a lid or cover on the top of the bucket to keep the single crab from getting out. If you have two or more crabs in the bucket, you need no lid. None of the crabs will be able to escape.
