  • Talking retiree health care

    The news from the New Mexico Retiree Health Care Authority is that things could be worse, but they are not exactly great.
    If you are one of the 22,000 state and local government and public school retirees covered for health insurance through this program, or a current employee looking to this program for your future, you might want to pay attention.
    RHCA has managed to save itself from several financial and political scrapes and survived to this point. At the moment, the program has projected solvency for the next 15 years.  Sort of.

  • Counting the bottles of beer

     The first week of April brings a welcomed break to students in our school district.  During the nearly two weeks off, they get to spend time thinking those deep thoughts that usually command a young student’s mind.  You know, things like “Uh, what do you want to do today?”
      Thinking about the present can be a daunting task, especially if you make the mistake of thinking about something that actually takes neural energy.  Why not spend that time doing something more comfortable, less complicated, more productive.  For example, how about counting to fifty thousand?

  • Sacrifice isn't what you might think

    Why is “sacrifice” such a common theme in the church? — R.H.

    You astutely point out the importance of sacrifice in our life in Christ. Frequently, when moderns hear the word “sacrifice,” the mind conjures images of blood, guts and inconvenience.
    These outward things have nothing to do with sacrifice. Contrarily, love, truth and mercy are the things that make sacrifice worthy. In truth, “sacrifice” is a synonym for love and is thus necessary for all Christians.

  • Court upholds state law in ‘tax lightning’ dispute 


    SANTA FE (AP) — The state Court of Appeals has upheld the constitutionality of a law capping residential property tax valuation increases until a home changes ownership.
    Had the court tossed out the law, it was possible that longtime New Mexico homeowners could have faced significant tax increases if their homes were reassessed and property values rose.

  • Mega Millions jackpot hits $640M

    The Mega Millions lottery is available in New Mexico and tickets can be purchased in Los Alamos and White Rock.
