I badly needed to go to the restroom. It was Saturday, Nov. 10, 2018. I remember the date for two reasons: 1. It was the day of the Las Cruces Veterans Day Parade and, 2. It was the day of Bedlam (the annual football game between the evil OU Sooners and my alma mater, Oklahoma State University). 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
In last week’s column, following the Aug. 3 mass shooting in El Paso, in which 22 people died, I invited Bulletin readers to submit ideas for something – anything – America might do to slow the epidemic of mass shootings in our country. more
New Mexico is no stranger to astronauts. Borman Autoplex in Las Cruces is named for one (Frank), and two other New Mexicans – Harrison Schmitt and Edgar Mitchell – have walked on the moon. But Steve Braithwaite has to be the first “banananaut” to traverse the Land of Enchantment. 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
