Pat Butler, 63, a notable Gallupian, and the friendly face of Butler’s print shop, died  from complications associated with cancer May 20. Pat was born at St. Mary’s Hospital on Jan. 20, 1955, becoming one of a select group of residents who started and finished life in the two city hospitals that served Gallup over those separate years.

Tomi Campos is Camille’s Sidewalk Café Teacher of the Month

Going out and finding students who have missed school for more than a couple of days is not your ordinary duty as a teacher, but Gallup Central High School teacher Tomi Campos, is not your ordinary teacher.

She does this because she truly cares about her students. Whether it’s going to their homes, their jobs, wherever they may be, she does this to make sure they are okay or if they need anything to help them get back into school. It’s similar to one of those afterschool television programs about a teacher who has a close knit relationship with her students which helps them make education a high priority in their...
