Gadgets – not always labor saving devices

Lynn Moncus Through the years, we have visited about the many gadgets we have to make life more confusing even though are supposed to make it easier. Some of us are reasonably sure they have lives of their own and decide to attack just about the time we are in a relaxed mode. They rarely […]

Eating habits begin at birth

Brenda Bishop It may be hard to believe that the health decisions you make for a five-year-old today will still count when he or she is 50.  Many studies now show that adult afflictions like heart disease and high blood pressure clearly have their origins in early childhood. In some cases, childhood presents the only […]

‘Tucumcari time’ confuses editor

TV Hagenah The other day I was talking on the phone to a young man who grew up in Tucumcari and had recently returned home from college. I wanted to arrange a meeting with him so I could take a photograph for a story I was doing, and I asked him to come by the […]

‘Spellink’ can be difficult

TV Hagenah Now that we are into 2004, I have to admit that the concept of a New Year is confusing for me. I think it comes down to my inability to throw old things away. You should see my collection of earth shoes and bell-bottom pants. I’m the same way about old years. What […]

Cedar decorations mean great deal

By Lynn Moncus: Comments from the Canyon As we enter this new year, we need to take a few minutes to thank two local ladies for the gift they gave to Quay County and the travelers along Highway 209. Mrs. Bert Waterman and Mrs. Dorothy Kingston took the time to decorate a beautiful little cedar […]

TV Hagenah: TV Time I have never like the words, “You can’t miss it,” but I have learned to really, really hate them lately. Recently, I had found it necessary to interview a fellow who lived out of town a ways. I don’t remember what the story was, but it seemed like a big story […]

Looking back, then forward to 2004

Lynn Moncus: Comments from the Canyons Just as we almost become accustomed to one year, we rush right into the next. As a result, each year seems to blend into the next and leaves us wondering what happened when. If we listen to the news or read it, we might get the idea that each […]

Looking like Santa a big responsibility

TV Time: TV Hagenah Editor’s note: This column is the first of a semi regular series by the Quay County Sun’s new managing editor that will run periodically in the paper. They are meant as humor. I love Christmas. When you look like I do, you have to. For those not familiar with this editor, […]

‘Tis the season for priceless memories

Comments from the Canyon: Lynn Moncus Recently, I was reviewing some of the news items about past Christmas celebrations in our county, and as usual, felt inspired by all that occurred in each community. Neighbors gathered in homes and later in schools and churches to celebrate Christ’s birth and to spend a few hours together […]

Letter to the editor: No level playing field

I’m a long ago Tucumcari resident who checks out the Quay County Sun on line. I offer a strong second to your opinion about teams getting a home field advantage for the state championship game. It is unfair and guarantees there is not a level playing field. Arizona has it right. Semi-final and championship games […]
