Thank you, Carlos Miera, for your recent My Turn ("State settles with five behavioral health providers," Dec. 19) in which you speak out for the integrity of the mental health providers in the state, which were accused of fraud during the governorship of Susanna Martinez. more
My wife and I have been to the Holy Cross Hospital in Taos, both emergency room and hospital, many times. The medical service is first class, and we as a town and county should be proud of it and support it. There is a problem, however, with their finances, as we all read in recent issues of the Taos News. more
Climate science is still evolving - earth's climate is cyclic, and forcing models aren't set in stone. Yet, the more strident the voices, and the more dire, immediate and universal the threat, the louder the call is for us to quickly surrender to antidemocratic solutions that are ill considered and likely ineffective. more
Expanding on the Taos News' recent article about booksellers ("Taos is very much a book town," Dec. 5), may I offer a few additional suggestions for local bibliophiles? Though not exclusively bookstores, any of these would reward a visit. more
As of September 2019, recycling glass and plastic are no longer available for Taos consumers. I decided to investigate - why not? more
I would like to announce that I am officially seeking the endorsement of the Taos County Board of County Commissioners for the New Mexico House of Representatives, filling the seat for District 42 previously held by the Honorable Roberto "Bobby" Gonzales. more
Here we go again. Once again, I find myself dropping the other work of our organization to respond to willful misinformation about Amigos Bravos in Jerry Yeargin's "My Turn" in the Dec. 12 edition of the Taos News ("Phase out livestock grazing in La Jara Canyon"). more
It is very tempting to be pulled into the Trump phenomenon, but I believe it is about much more than an individual named Donald J. Trump. He is merely the ball we are kicking around for reasons that go much deeper than this individual. However, he seems to have just the right qualities needed for unconscious, emotional projections. more
In case some of you missed it, the New Mexico Human Services Department issued a press release on Dec. 3 informing the public that a settlement agreement had been reached with the five remaining behavioral health providers that were "falsely" accused of fraud for overbilling Medicaid by the Martinez administration in 2013. more
All of us at Stray Hearts Animal Shelter are so grateful for the enthusiastic response we've gotten from the whole community for our new venture, Stray Hearts ReTails. more
The specialists at Amigos Bravos have been promoting the odd theory that the big problem on the upper Río Fernando is that the river channel itself is causing the riparian pasture to dry out. That seems like a case of blaming the victim. more
Like so many American children, I looked forward to Christmas all year. I loved hearing my mother’s beautiful voice singing “O Holy Night” during Christmas Eve service. I treasured the bustle of warmth and love that filled our home as friends and family gathered to celebrate together. That countdown to Christmas morning started with finding the perfect Christmas tree. more
Just prior to the 2018 election, and two years into the Trump administration, I argued that we had seen quite enough. To my thinking, as rote enablers of a lawless president, Republican Party officeholders and candidates deserved blanket indictment. more
For the past few months, I've been carrying on a conversation with a woman -- who lives right here in Taos -- on the multifarious conspiracy theory she is proud to believe in. more
I am writing this to seek the attention of our beer drinking community. This includes athletes, non-athletes, young people, old people, men and women, just about everyone. more
After railing on Fox News about the non-existent "War on Thanksgiving," we can expect our Divider-in-Chief to hold forth on Fox News about their other non-existent fantasy, the so-called "War on Christmas." more
A few years ago, I moved out West for the same reasons many young people are doing so these days - I was in awe of the mountains, and unlike in Oklahoma, where less than 5 percent of the land is public, I could access vast areas to hike, hunt, fish and otherwise enjoy the great outdoors. more
Welcome to America, and congratulations on having to learn all that useless information that you'll never need again. What you, and your children, need to understand is that America is a racket. more
Many of the people I know have not spent the hours I have in the last two weeks listening to the impeachment hearings. But I have been glued to the TV, watching history unfold, and whatever the outcome, have been surprised to find that it gives me hope. more
Unlike many other nonprofits, we aren't able to rely on large endowments or grants when our community fundraising isn't enough to pay the bills. Incredibly, only one-third of our revenue comes from our contracts with the town and county and, unfortunately, the amounts we receive have not increased in years. more
On Nov. 5, I headed to the courthouse around 4 p.m. to vote. The clerk explained there was no voting at the courthouse, only local polling stations, because it was such a small election. Another woman who came to vote was as disappointed as I was. more
Access to a legal medical procedure - abortion - is significantly unavailable in New Mexico's rural areas. This is unconstitutional discrimination against women. It threatens their health and overall well-being, and limits their choice of career and life path. more
Living in a place like Taos comes with many amazing pluses to life that you cannot find in any big city. The beauty is beyond compare, the people are mostly fantastic. Yet there is a sad reality also hiding on the roads of Taos. Anyone and everyone knows about this reality. more
Many of us at this point in history realize that we are at a crossroads. While some focus on President Trump specifically, I think the danger of Trump is that he represents a trend of politics that is combative and unhealthy and puts the world at risk. There are numerous examples that lend credibility to this assertion. more
The loyalty of the Trump base would be admirable if the "mistakes" of Trump would not all pertain to matters of national security. more
