  • Dispatch New Mexico - New Mexico Tourism is a matter of economics, pride

    Since moving to New Mexico a decade ago, I’ve had a lot of family and friends come out for a visit, and they’re often quite curious about this land and its people.

    THUMBS UP! TWO BEAUTIFUL TREES
    Like you, we’ve been enjoying the two beautiful city Christmas trees that were put up in recent weeks at Plaza Park and the old Safeway parking lot on Douglas and Seventh.

  • Don’t miss ‘Nunsense’

    Who says there’s nothing to do in Las Vegas? A look at the listings in Friday’s newspaper provided a plethora of activities, two of which were the Electric Light Parade and “Nunsense,” a musical comedy presented by the Nat Gold Players.

    Those who attended the opening performances at the new event center attached to Charlie’s Restaurant left with a good feeling. One test of a successful music-comedy performance comes when those who attended leave the venue with memorable tunes or catchy lines still running through their heads.
