  • Ribbon cutting set for Jan. 25

    Jenn Bartram was dealing with a major problem. She woke up in the middle of the night craving sugar. She ate handfuls of candy corn and was trying hard not to eat sweets, but still felt totally out of control.
    She wasn’t sure how to get a handle on her cravings, then Dr. Merry McIntyre recommended Dr. Bobbie Hall.
    Hall is a certified natural health practitioner, master herbalist and naturopathic doctor that has a private natural health practice in town called Trinity Natural Health.  
    Bartram had her first appointment in mid-October and it was then that Hall told her she had Candida — an imbalance that cancer survivors often face.

  • PRC fines Española towing service

    The New Mexico Public Regulation Commission (PRC) recently passed an order to impose heavy cash penalties against a long-time Española-based towing company after it failed to follow state motor carrier laws.
    Following a non-consensual tow late last year, Robert Seeds Towing Services was found to be in violation of four state and PRC rules.
    Commissioners closed the case this week, ordering fines totaling more than $15,000. Seeds, is an Espanola City Councilor, and also sits on the North Central Regional Transit Board.
    The most prominent charge stemmed from findings that the company had purchased the towed vehicle at auction far under market value after its owner was intentionally kept from recovering it at the Seeds business facility.
