All Stories (7,688)

La Vida Candi

This was the first short story I wrote in a college CW class. It was loosely based on a true story that happened a few years back in Artesia. Later, I adapted it into a 10 minute screenplay that was chosen for a live read at the 2008 Words Afire festival. The screenplay is better. At some point I want to combine the changes in the screenplay with this story. A professor told me that some people might find it offensive, though almost everyone who's read this has said "I know that… Continue

Remember Bangkok Cafe?

Remember back in 1990-not-much when your choice for Thai food was the pink stucco box named Bangkok cafe? There are a lot more choices these days, so much so that we stopped going years ago. A few weeks ago we drove by and noticed the face-lift. Tonight we found their… Continue

Mayor Marty Ticketed

Sorry to cue The Simpson's Nelson saying, Ha Ha, but our City's Mayor got a speeding ticket on January 30th, '09. Ha Ha !

A well done video story by Jeremy Jojola, ran tonight on KOBtv 4 about Mayor Martin Chavez getting a speeding ticket back on January 30th on Highway 285 near Tesuque. Tribal Police ticketed Mayor Marty for going 76 mph in a 55 mph zone at 7 a.m. The Mayor has paid a $55. fine which sounds a little more… Continue

A Modest Change in our Tax Code = 3 Billion Gallons of Water per Year

LOS RANCHOS--I know large numbers are hard to comprehend. But listen...what if a small change to the tax code for valley land owners saved 3 billion gallons of water, cost absolutely nothing, made life easier for agricultural land owners, produced jobs, and made our food supply more secure, more plentiful, and cheaper. Interested?

First, the Solution

Currently agricultural land is taxed at a rate well below that of residential… Continue

School, Bikes, and Self Expression Via da Blog

I don't know if anybody actually reads these things but I need to blogulate a bit.


It's cool. I enjoy arguing with some of the instructors. The scenery is nice as well. However, I start realizing said scenery is closer to my son's age and what would chica's parents say if she brought home somebody old enough to be her pappy. Plus the wife assembly would get pissed off as well. Some of the classes are hard. Spanish is especially tough for me so I've been… Continue

Schwartzman's Meat Plant

Today myself and another photographer snuck to Schwartzman's Meat Plant, which has been abandoned since the late 1970's

Echos of Laughter and Splashing Water

A boat basking in decay reminiscing of better days at the Butte! Can you hear the joyful laughter of past long gone?

We found all kinds of neat things to photograph. This is the plant where our older borther Tony worked for many years. He now works in a… Continue

Old Mexico Food

This restaurant on San Mateo S.E. offers "Old Mexico Food" for sale.

I do know the difference between Southern and Northern NEW New Mexican food as well as the difference between Old Mexico and NEW Mexican Food...but this sign (taken out of context and on first glance driving by) is pretty funny on a sophomoric level which is where I live most of the time. If you can't make it down to Puerto Vallarta and you need… Continue

La Hierba Falso

You know how there are always things you swear you’ll never do? Like in the late 70s it was “I’ll never wear platform shoes and a polyester disco suit.” In the 90s it was “I’ll never get a cell-phone,” followed about 5 years ago with “I’ll never get a cell-phone with camera and text messaging.” You say you never will, and then you do. It happens.

But this latest break in my strict standards has really taken me by surprise. Remember Mr. Robinson’s advice to young Ben in “The… Continue

Burlesque Noir in Pictures NWS

As mentioned previously, I have been so lucky to find such wonderful people to help me in this endeavor. One of the very fortunate aspects in BN has been that it has all been caught on film. I really appreciate all of the friends who have shot our shows for the past 4 years. I am also thankful for the strangers (who are now friends) who have come out to shoot our shows.

Just about every show there is always one or two shots that stand out to me in the group of photos that a… Continue

President Luna

A little voice interrupts me as I wash dishes, “Mom, I’m the President.”

I look over to see my three year old standing in kitchen, “Hello, President Luna. Nice to meet you.” I receive a lipstick smeared smile as she scampers off to her room wearing her usual attire-camisole and panties. Not quite presidential in appearance but definitely in attitude. The Washington Press would have a field day. The headline reads, "President… Continue
