  • Have fun and support a worthy cause all in one weekend

    After a successful run last year, the organizers of the K2 Women’s Weekend decided if it’s not broke, why fix it?

  • Bishops oppose domestic partnerships

    SANTA FE — A  proposal backed by Gov. Bill Richardson for domestic partnerships for same-sex couples has run into trouble at the start of the legislative session.

    The New Mexico Conference of Catholic Bishops will oppose the legislation, just as it did last year when lawmakers rejected a similar proposal. Opposition from the Roman Catholic Church dims prospects for the legislation’s approval.

  • Keep yourself and others safe

    During the winter months, the county would like to remind residents the importance of keeping sidewalks clear of snow and ice so that they remain pass­able for postal workers, children walking to school and others who need to use them.

    When possible, and depend­ing upon available resources, county crews conduct sidewalk-clearing operations by removing snow first from the adopted “safe routes to school” and then move to other selected sidewalks.

The letters in question have come from proponents of the election now underway concerning two education propositions.

  • Mother Nature clobbers us

    Many of us living in the far Western states know what it is to feel the power of seismic waves passing through the Earth. The sharp jolts are unmistakable, and the sense of chaos is terrifying even to those of us who like a thrill.

    A minor earthquake I felt in Berkeley, Calif., still stands out in my mind some 30 years later, and not because it’s one of my favorite memories. My thoughts turned to it as soon as I heard the news from the Eureka, Calif., area, which experienced an offshore earthquake of 6.5 on the Richter scale recently.
