They were heading south to spend the winter at Bosque de Apache National Wildlife Refuge near Socorro. In the late winter and early spring the cranes will leave New Mexico and gather at Grand Island in Nebraska.

Corner to Corner
© 2023 New Mexico News Services

Congenial. Fair. Smart. Trustworthy. Man of his word.

These were words used to describe Sen. Stuart Ingle when I spoke to his colleagues, Republicans and Democrats, in the Senate. Ingle, a veteran of the New Mexico Senate, resigned recently, deciding to call it quits after almost 40 years.

In his typical, low-key manner, he loaded up his box of belongings from his Senate office, and when a passerby asked him what he was doing, he said “I’m done. I’m out of here.”  

Ingle came to the Senate in 1985. His first term was the only time he served Read More

Tales Of Our Times: News Is A Scarce Bead Handpicked From The Jarful

Tales of our Times
New Mexico Citizens for Clean Air & Water

A onetime newspaperman in World War I had canny instincts. He wrote: “Trying to determine what is going on in the world by reading newspapers is like trying to tell the time by watching the second hand of a clock.” His insight has gotten truer since social media swamped the airwaves.

I would say the news has a very special, limited purpose. News focuses on the unusual, not the normal. News pursues exact facts at specific moments, with little time for history, background, or context. So we get slivers of what is going on
