  • Achieving the quest of financial security

    By Rick Kraft

    In the lives we live we all basically want the same things: happiness, health, and financial security. But with these as targets, many of us miss the mark.

    There is often a large gap between what we want and what we are willing to do to accomplish what we want. What is in our heads does not always play out in our actions. And it does no good to think, think, and think without taking action.

    Last week she needed to go to the Japanese Consulate in Denver to renew her passport, so I drove her up from New Mexico. It took her only a few minutes to take care of business, leaving us with a day to kill in the heart of the city.

    THUMBS UP: THE DOCTOR IS IN

    We’re happy Tracy Wilkerson, D.O., has decided to see patients in Las Vegas. The growth of our medical community, both in terms of specialists and internal medicine / general practice doctors and nurse practitioners, at San Miguel or Mora facilities, is a big key to population growth.

  • A dose of teardrop therapy

    I needed to reach for my box of Kleenex before starting this column. I promise this effort will not be the “‘bawl-o-rama’ of the ages,” but since I’m in a bit of a funk anyway, well, what better way to vent than to put things in writing?

    Many years ago, cousin Chris, who is about my age, chummed around with me when I visited in Santa Fe. Soon, an uncle drove up, and I ran to greet him. But before I got to the car, his terrier leaped up from the back seat and took a chunk out of my chest, right at the nipple.
