    Thomas Garcia, Staff writer|Jun 13, 2018

    One of two potential candidates for Mesalands Community College's president position visited the campus Monday for a public forum. "Being a president of an institution has been a goal of mine, on my journey as a vice president I am seeking a place to grow and expand my skill sets," said Robert Munoz from Fort Worth, Texas. Munoz said there are some very unique programs at Mesalands, including ferrier science and silver smithing. He said these two programs are appropriate for the region and...

  • Incumbents score easy wins

    Thomas Garcia, Staff writer|Jun 13, 2018

    There weren't many contested races during Tuesday's Quay County primaries. The ones that were, weren't all that close. Incumbents Franklin McCasland and Timothy O'Quinn scored easy victories in their Republican primary races, with results declared official after Friday's canvassing. Neither winner faces general election opposition. McCasland took the primary nod for Quay County Commission District 3 with 563 votes to Bryan Rinestine's 400. "It was a good clean race and the people made their...

  • We are to be holy

    Leonard Lauriault, Religion columnist|Jun 13, 2018

    Building upon a previous article stating that we’re to be perfect as God is perfect, my last article (May 30, 2018) delved into how God is perfect and how we can be – are to be – perfect (Matthew 5:48). First Peter 1:15-16 says we’re to be holy in all we do because God is holy (Leviticus 11:44-45). So, this article will consider how God is holy and what it means for us to be holy. But first, because it’s possible that many people don’t know what holiness is, Webster’s New World Dictionary Compact School and Office Edition (Simon and Schuster, I...

  • Citizens must demand better public behavior

    Albuquerque Journal|Jun 13, 2018

    Just when you think the level of discourse and civility in this country can’t get any lower, you are proven wrong — as illustrated by two stories that have competed for headlines this month. The first was an incredibly offensive tweet by Roseanne Barr — who managed to sink her hit new television show in which she played essentially herself, a Trump supporter. She one-upped her previous history of obnoxious behavior in just 53 characters by referring to Obama confidante and former adviser Valerie Jarrett as a product of the Muslim Broth...

  • May best win new 'jungle primaries'

    Steve Hansen, Columnist|Jun 13, 2018

    California calls it a “jungle primary.” There, you don’t declare a party, you just come out and vote. So the law of the jungle applies. You get the most votes or the second-most, or you’re out. Party makes no difference. It makes the general election a runoff contest between the two top vote-getters in the primary, whether they’re Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, or members of the Green Party, Peace and Freedom Party or no party at all. Independent voters aren’t sidelined for the California primaries, as they are in New Mexico. I t...
