  • Shores to share tales of trekking in the Kingdom of Bhutan

    The Kingdom of Bhutan, or the Land of the Thunder Dragon, is a small landlocked country bordered by Tibet on the north and northwest and surrounded by northern India.
    High Himalayan peaks form the western and northern boundaries and Bhutan’s elevation ranges from 100 to 7,541 m. In fact, Gangkhar Puensum, on the disputed border with China and the country’s highest point, is widely recognized as the world’s highest unclimbed peak.

  • Los Alamos Boy Scout recognized for bravery

  • WRSC: The center with the 'sweet heart'

    At the White Rock Senior Center members and guests are always greeted with a cup of coffee and a treat.

  • Udall's big day in DC

    Sen. Tom Udall has had his big day in Congress – at least for now. New Mexico’s freshman Democratic senator and a number of colleagues elected in the big Democratic years of 2006 and 2008 became dissatisfied about the Senate’s slow pace a year or so ago.
    Udall, his cousin Rep. Mark Udall of Colorado, and a few others with experience in the U.S. House of Representatives, were accustomed to a much quicker pace of work, with bills rammed through by strong leaders such as Nancy Pelosi, Tom DeLay and Newt Gingrich.

  • Valentine's Day isn't the only time for us to appreciate others

    Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, reminding us to celebrate the ones we love. But most of us need more than one day a year to remember to honor and cherish those dear to us.
    I was telling my husband off in my head the other day. You know the way you vent your frustration with the virtual argument you can win, rather than with the actual one you probably won’t, when I suddenly realized that, what I was saying to him, equally applied to me.
