  • Dueling with unloaded guns

    A creative headline writer described the employment packages offered by Democrats and Republicans as “Dueling Job-Growth Plans.”
    To have a duel, the guns must be loaded. That’s one little detail Senate Dems forgot.
    In a news conference, they trotted out SB 9, yet another stab in Sen. Peter Wirth’s long campaign for combined tax reporting, which employers say would cost jobs; SB 74, from Sen. Steve Fischmann, who has an untarnished track record for being clueless on economic issues; and Senate Majority Leader Michael Sanchez, whose SB 140 is unworkable.

  • Talking the Rail Runner

    Sen. George Muñoz, D-Gallup, poses a good question about the New Mexico Rail Runner Express with his Senate Bill 247.
    But like nearly all Democrats and a good many Republicans, he missed the point. He only asks who should pay for the Rail Runner’s losses, all New Mexicans or just some, not whether it should continue.
    The bill provides “a dedicated funding source for the operation and maintenance costs of heavy rail mass transit systems that fairly imposes these costs on the locales and persons that are primarily served.”
    Government has things to do. But what things? At what level of government? Is there benefit to people supposedly served by the government activity?

  • Stockpile Stewardship: Los Alamos

  • Bullying series continues

  • Celebrate Valentine's Day at WRPC

    Neighbors and friends of White Rock Presbyterian Church are invited to join with members to celebrate Valentine’s Day and enjoy a chalupa supper, during which the new interim  pastor, Rev. Dr. Harry Cole, will be introduced.
    Cole  began his interim ministry with WRPC on Nov. 27 after serving as an interim pastor in about 10 other congregations around the nation.  Most recently, Cole was interim pastor at  Westminster Church of Roswell.
    St. Valentine’s Day is a traditional occasion honoring sweethearts, married couples and all who celebrate the love of Christian fellowship.
    Marriage is a sacrament of the church and  love is a passion of the heart, the symbol of St. Valentine’s Day.  

  • Ask Fr. John: To pray without ceasing is an ongoing process

    What does Paul mean when he says “pray without ceasing?” and how do you do it in this world? — E.B.

    Paul means we are called to pray ceaselessly. This may seem unreasonable to some but it is nevertheless what we are called to do. Christ calls us to love God with all our soul, all our heart, all our mind and all our strength.
    This implies relationship and personal communication. Prayer is simply ongoing relationship with God, communion with him.
    If we love God with all our being, we will necessarily strive to pray without ceasing. In other words, to relate to him ceaselessly.
    Note the word “striving.” We do not end up there all at once.
