  • How is this going to help?

    Gov. Susana Martinez wants to exempt small businesses paying less than $200 a month in gross receipts tax from having to pay the tax.
    She says it will affect over 40,000 small businesses in the state, most of which are one-person businesses.
    I am one of those businesses and the chances are fairly good that you may be one too.
    And for the life of me, I can’t figure out how it is going to help anyone. Supposedly it will help me hire an employee.
    This column appears in many newspapers around the state but even if it appeared in all of them, it isn’t enough to share with anyone but my wife, who does the bookkeeping for free.

  • Former Ali trainer Angelo Dundee dead at 90

    There was no way Angelo Dundee was going to miss Muhammad Ali’s 70th birthday party.
    The genial trainer got to see his old friend, and reminisce about good times. It was almost as if they were together in their prime again, and what a time that was.
    Dundee died in his apartment in Tampa, Fla., Wednesday night at the age of 90, and with him a part of boxing died, too.
    He was surrounded by his family, said his son, Jimmy, who said the visit with Ali in Louisville, Ky., meant everything to his Dad.
    “It was the way he wanted to go,” the son said. “He did everything he wanted to do.”

  • Invite returns after being 'frozen out'

    “Frozen out but not forgotten” was the theme after the Bryan Sanchez Memorial Invitational wrestling tournament was canceled in 2011.
    The Bryan Sanchez tournament is the main event of each season for the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team, but because of weather issues, along with a statewide natural gas shortage that left thousands in New Mexico without heat as a major cold front swept through the state, the tournament was nixed.
    The frosty and icy conditions may have frozen out the tournament, but not the wrestling community.
