 Light It was a quiet morning, the temperature already soaring, as it will on any El Paso Saturday in August. Dewayne “Rock” Jones was preparing to raise a flag up the pole at … more
The snow at my feet suddenly started flying. I was trudging in bright sunlight through Glacier National Park with a friend in late February. Then I realized that it wasn’t the snow but a pair of Ptarmigan invisible against a glaring white background who took off as we approached. Yes, the disruption was startling, but we both responded with silent smiles. Who would break the quiet of a wintry day? more
Fans of horror movies know there are always early scenes that tip you off to the terrible things that will come later. I had that feeling last week as I watched the press conference held by prosecutors in Minnesota. more

In May 2011, at age 65, I walked out the back door of the Ruidoso News, where I had been editor for seven years, into the refreshing mountain scent of retirement. more
I was talking with a friend recently about buying local. Most of us understand the value and importance of local businesses. Most have heard the adage that, if you spend a dollar with a locally owned business, it stays in our area and gets spent at least seven times locally before it leaves town. With corporate chain stores, not as much. more

When someone proclaims “Black Lives Matter,” a common response is, “All Lives Matter.” And that is certainly true. more
By this time next week, copies of our 16th annual Southwest New Mexico Legislative Guide should be making their way across the state. Creating this publication, which has won several state and national awards through the years, is a huge undertaking, stretching our small staff to its limits. The result, though, has always been worth it. The publication is used as a vital resource by people all over New Mexico, including the staff at the Roundhouse, our state’s capitol building in Santa Fe. In recent years, some readers have taken to tearing pages from our magazine, and putting them in plastic sleeves in loose-leaf notebooks so they don’t wear out from use. more

No matter how the separation with Ewing turns out, it will likely cost the district at least a quarter of a million dollars. And with Trinity, the district believes it spent $772,000 it shouldn’t have. more
Habit can be a powerful thing. Maybe it’s the most powerful thing. Great athletes are talented, yes, but the most successful ones create the habits of working out, of practicing, of studying opponents. Top business people develop habits that keep them learning, growing and improving. more
