Letter to the Editor: Dead dog carcass update

E-mail Print PDF
Editor,

On Monday, April 29, 2019, I observed a dog that was killed in the middle of the bridge that leads to the Navajo reservation on Highway 566, an 11-mile-long state road that begins its southern terminus at NM 118 and Historic U.S. Route 66 in Church Rock, and the northern terminus is at the end of state maintenance by...

Madame G guide to the stars Week of JUNE 17

E-mail Print PDF
Dear Reader, enjoy a heaven-sent week. Allow this time to enter unencumbered into the world of light, with no external expectations. This will either be a time of great healing or great suffering. The choice is yours. You may wish to rethink a few things. What is worth fighting for, and what is not? Madame G wishes you well on your journey of life.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Your heart is suffering. Pain is entrenched in your spirit and chokes you, as it holds you down. You can’t decide which way is up or down. Your instincts may tell you to inflict pain on others, but this does not end suffering for you. In fact, all it does is create more suffering for yourself and those around you...

Make vacation memories in 2019

A condo or a cabin? Beach or mountain? Country or city? USA or overseas? What is your favorite vacation spot? Adventurer or homebody?

Some people choose a staycation - a vacation spent at home and involving day trips to local attractions.

And some people use vacation time for home improvements - which really isn’t a vacation. The purpose of a vacation is supposed to be rest and relaxation. And fun.

However, some jet-setters cram so much activity into their annual vacation - they need a vacation from their vacation when they return home.

I’ve often wondered where people that live at the beach take their vacations. Do they travel to the mountains? Do they go somewhere dry? Do they...

A New Mexico spring is a sight to behold. One minute birds are singing and the sun is out; the next moment, wind is ripping through your yard while hail beats down. It’s pretty unpredictable, but if you hold on you’ll experience beauty. Madame G recommends that you hang on for the wild ride of the Last Quarter Moon on June 7. You might as well smile like it’s a rollercoaster.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You have a generous heart, open mind, and outstanding physical prowess. You’re talented. But, you have a tendency to give so much you burn out. Before you implode from overwork, take a moment to appreciate what you’ve accomplished. You’re amazing! You should be proud of what...

Fences and Walls: How about our Wildlife

Letter to the Editor

Recently, while traveling on a rural road in our state, the new wire fences lining both sides peaked my interest. On one side of the road there was an old wooden post fence alongside the new metal fencing and there were man-made obstacles blocking the underpasses. As these fences went on for miles, I began to question how wildlife is to travel across our land for survival with these barriers in place. Later that week, I visited the border area and saw the miles of new border fencing being built causing even more obstacles to our wildlife.

Before human development such as fences, plows, oil, human, roads, and cattle that took their toll, New Mexico’s wildlands were...
