The meeting on Jan. 29 for Veterans Helping Veterans in Don Diego’s Restaurant only had two speakers and both were quick and to the point.

The first was Veterans Service Office Tyra Saavedra who passed along the most recent update from the VA. According to Saavedra, there is an office being set up in Gallup at the Ford...

Dear Editor,

In reading you last edition of the Sun, and other papers I might add, the article on Marijuana, and the poll disturbs me.

Besides the fact that I am an un-believer in the benefits, the poll is what disturbs me the most. It says 61% in favor. Well 61% of 400 people is not worth printing.

I have been taught for many years that when doing surveys, and polls, 10% is the bare minimum, and the higher percentage you obtain, the more credible your survey or poll becomes.

This poll is very misleading, and I would guess that if an accurate poll was done, with 10% of the population of New mexico for instance, you would have a far different outcome.

I see many polls done in downtown...

The sun is still fully in Aquarius. It’s the perfect time for intellectual pursuits, political debates, and creative endeavors. Your efforts may require assistance from friends or fellow idea generators, but that works in your favor. Collaborate this week especially in the work force and challenge the status quo. Madame G sees great things ahead.

 

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Your mind works fast and your actions are faster. But, this week you feel pulled into indecision. Stop warring with yourself Aries. Your greatest enemy is you. The path you’ve chosen is yours for better or worse—own it. Don’t try to play the “what if” game. Stick to the plan and pour yourself heart and...

READ THIS ALERT CAREFULLY.  YOUR OHV STICKER FUND MONEY IS BEING STOLEN AGAIN!!

We are angry and disgusted to announce that, once again, the NM Legislature plans to steal your state “OHV sticker funds”. The Senate’s General Appropriation Bill, Senate Bill 158 (SB1582) raids the OHV Trail Safety Fund (aka the “sticker fund”) for $500,000.  That’s right, a half million dollars is in their crosshairs. That is money we all paid into the fund that is supposed to be used for OHV safety and education programs. Adding insult to injury, the stolen funds would be given to State Parks, where motorized recreation is completely prohibited.

The Trail Safety Fund is 100% funded by...

In the spirit of fun and Internet memes, Madame G suggests: be like Aquarius. The key characteristics of this Sun sign are: thoughtfulness, devotion, and understanding. Aquarians innovate wherever they work from fast food to state government. They don’t ignore good ideas. Aquarians are smart. Be like an Aquarian.

 

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You’re determined, strong, and greatly admired. You’re also misunderstood. Your challenge, should you chose to accept it—RELAX. All good things come to those who wait. As people of action, anything passive strikes you as wrong. This year requires patience. You’ll get where you’re going, but don’t burn out before you get...
