A man alone can handle it

TV Hagenah I think I speak for men everywhere when I say, I resent the impression which wives seem to have about husbands – that if they leave us alone in the house for any extended length of time, like, say, a couple of days, we can’t function. We can indeed function…and function quite well, […]

Rainy days bring sweet memories

Lynn Moncus During the dark, cool days this week, the mind wandered back to the canyons of home in order to dispel dreary thoughts and to recall how we entertained ourselves without benefit of television, radio, or any electronic games.

A couple theories about food

TV Hagenah I love food. When I was overseas. I used to dream about the stuff. I would have these dreams about running across a beautiful white sand beach under swaying coconut palms pursuing a bikini clad Big Mac or Big Beef Burrito Supreme.

Community pride can be contagious

Elections now not like the past

Lynn Moncus Most people I have listened to of late have stated rather strongly that they will be pleased when the election is over because they are tired of hearing all the mudslinging and even more tired of the many phone calls that have interrupted their lives. Maybe just those of us who are over […]

Say, what’s the name of your car?

TV Hagenah Many psychologists say that in America our cars define us – which when you think about it, is kind of frightening. I mean, look at the car names for heaven’s sake. Do you remember the “Gremlin”? Cars don’t have enough little problems that they had to call one a “Gremlin”? Personally, I would […]

Lynn Moncos Some of the Tucumcari Historical Research Institute board members had quite an experience Wednesday morning when 175 students from Tucumcari Elementary School toured the museum to see the Smithsonian Exhibit, as well as some of the items belonging to the institute.
