I walked out of last week’s Taos Town Council meeting where our newest hotel was given the green light, satisfied with the outcome of a productive process. Many commendable citizen activists … more
We are ruled by psychopaths. Insane! Difficult to fathom, true? You may have heard of an elite ruling class, known as the Illuminati, Cabal, or New World Order. They have had a designed world … more
Taos Town Councilor Fritz Hahn's My Turn about lack of opportunity in Taos struck a chord with me. I love to hear from people who are looking out for the up-and-coming generation of Taoseños. Hahn also deserves credit for seeking to revitalize the acequias around town, and supporting kitchen gardens and farmers market culture.

In the age of social media, drama travels fast. Parents of pre-teens and teens whose doctors recommend they receive the cancer-preventing Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine might find plenty of unsubstantiated reasons on the internet to not get the vaccine: it's easy for stories -- true or not -- to be uploaded to a chat room and read across the globe in a matter of hours. more

Sen. Mimi Stewart of Albuquerque recently was named New Mexico’s single most effective legislator – indeed, one of the most effective lawmakers in any state – by FiscalNote. The national, non-partisan organization knows what it is talking about, representing many of the most successful Fortune 500 corporations. Most recipients of the award were Republicans.

This complex process requires strong bipartisan skills, and often goes completely unnoticed by the general public. I can attest, however, that in all my years in the Roundhouse, no legislator has ever deserved this honor more, nor worked harder to receive it, than Mimi Stewart. more
We write to urge our elected officials (and all citizens) to do everything in their power to protect our community from the current administration’s unjust and cruel actions toward our many neighbors, friends, and family members who are immigrants. We oppose all efforts to demean or dehumanize any of us. We, the Interfaith and Intercultural Alliance (IFIC), are a Taos County group composed of people from various faith and cultural groups in the community. As people of faith, conscience, and goodwill, we simply cannot keep silence any longer. more
