  • Boy, 13, dies in head-on crash -- updated

    A head-on collision on N.M. 4 near the White Rock "Y" killed a 13-year-old and sent three other people to the hospital Wednesday.

    N.M. 4 was closed for close to five hours before reopening around 8 p.m. Wednesday as the Santa Fe County Sheriff's Department fatal team conducted its investigation.

    Santa Fe County Sheriff Department Captain Adan Mendoza confirmed Wednesday night that the  fataiity was a 13-year-old boy, who was riding in the back seat of a 2009 Honda driven by  Jennifer Ventura-Trujillo, 41, of White Rock.

    The driver of the 2001 Toyota pickup truck was Dennis Bernal, 43, of Santa Fe. Mendoza said that Ventura-Trujillo and the 13-year-old boy were related. It is also the policy of the Santa Fe Sheriff’s Department not to identify victims under the age of 18.

    The 13-year-old girl riding in the passenger seat of Ventura-Trujillo’s vehicle was airlifted to UNM Hospital in Albuquerque. She was in stable condition with non life-threatening injuries, according to the Sheriff’s Department.

    Ventura-Trujillo was released from LAMC and Bernal was released from Christus St. Vincent Hospital in Santa Fe after being treated for minor injuries.

  • I’m thankful I am still on course

    What if you were diagosed with cancer? You’d be thankful just to get through it and survive, right? Well, what if you had cancer 4 times? What would be your thoughts? Could you still be thankful? I mean, who beats cancer four times?
    When I recently got news of my fourth cancer diagnosis, all I could think of was “how on earth can I go through this again? Why can’t I just beat this?” Consumed by thoughts of my family, and not being with them, I couldn’t be thankful for anything. Here I am, desperately trying to reach my children’s 18th birthday like it’s the 18th hole of a golf course, and it feels like I’ve just been disqualified at the 8th hole, 10 years too early.
    I was filled with anger. My body had let me down yet one more time. I suddenly began to doubt my usual unshakable optimism and think there was nothing left to be thankful for. And then I felt like a hypocrite. I’ve just spent most of September telling audiences across the Tri-Cities how to be, not just a survivor, but a Thriver: to make everyday precious and never quit, even when you’re in the bunker in a force 10 gale. Be thankful for what you have today, not what may come tomorrow.
