    Bennett’s Fine Jewelry gave back to the community during the holiday season by making a contribution to Self Help, Inc. During their Christmas season sale, the Bennetts sold slices of cake for $5. Under the icing of each slice of cake, was a gemstone, donated by the jewelry store. Each slice was guaranteed to contain a gemstone. Bennett’s Fine Jewelry matched the amount raised from their customers and made a $515 contribution to Self Help, Inc.

  • Contrarian thinking to legislature

    There’s an old saying that no one is safe when the Legislature is in session.
    Most of us wouldn’t argue about whether a lawmaking body is needed; the pace of change in modern society dictates that laws must be added and updated regularly. But the glib little saying is a sharp reminder that there’s always a risk. A legislator once commented to me that the Legislature spends 90 percent of its time correcting its previous mistakes.
    A couple of arguments about our New Mexico legislative process arise year after year, especially during the crowded 30-day sessions.  

  • EPA protection a big win for U.S.

    On Dec. 21, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released the first-ever federal protections reducing toxic pollutants, primarily mercury, produced by power plants.
     This is a major victory for all Americans, and one for which the Sierra Club and other environmental organizations have been fighting for years.  An assessment of mercury was required by the Clean Air Act amendments of 1990; so it has taken over 20 years to implement the law.
