Ranching in the rough New Mexico desert is a delicate balance. “It only takes a year or two to wreck a ranch in this desert environment, and it can take generations to get it back,” said Mike Mechenbier, who owns Four Daughters Land and Cattle Company, south of Los Lunas. Western Landowners Alliance recently hosted a tour of Four Daughters as part of its summer Stewardship in Action series. WLA executive director and former rancher Lesli Allison said the tours allow ranchers to show they care about the environment and are practicing sustainable agriculture profitably. “Ranchers and landowners speak from a place of experience,” Allison said. “They know the land and look at the world in a different way. If anyone can fix the environment, it’s.

The legend of 20 Tricks. Julie Carter The story has been told around campfires, roping arenas, beer coolers and white tablecloth restaurants with an ongoing hilarity that is enhanced only by knowing the players personally. It was the early '90s, California and a cowboy and his bride had been to a high-fallutin' paint horse sale. Conversation, a barbeque and alcohol energized the crowd and encouraged hand raising and check writing. Paul had been drinking some, but not a lot, and his wife Ineta had only a beer before they left the party and headed home. Paul was driving when they were pulled over by the flashing blue and red lights, with a second patrol car behind the first. The police officer told Paul he was speeding and also noted the open

Of Coyotes and Coyotés. Binary Choice. Environmental Enganchadores. By Stephen L. Wilmeth. A vote that supports local customs, culture, and the agriculture economy by the Dona Ana County Board of Commissioners was not expected. For the record, it would be hard to point to a single action over the last decade that could be identified as pro ag by that domination of verdant liberals.

Lynne parked her car in the little lot behind Cookies Du Moi. It was an odd little corner of Salt Lake City mixing pawn shops, liquor stores with barred windows and an invasion of upscale pastel-colored urban grazing and knick-knack shops. Small stores with cute names offering yogurt, dried flowers in a basket, ducks wearing bonnets and specialty bagels that cost more than a five-pound pot roast. New Age music drifted into the street. Lynne noticed a shabbily dressed man working his way around parked cars, peering in windows and under bumpers. She locked her car and entered Cookies Du Moi. “There’s a man out in the parking lot acting suspicious. He might be trying to break into a car,” reported Lynne. The lady behind the counter was casuall.

PETA has declared victory in their battle over fur and now they want to go to war over wool. I guess no one has told PETA that you don’t have to kill a sheep to get its wool like you have to kill a mink to get its fur. PETA wants folks to wear only “vegan wool” but isn’t it already? PETA is going after wool because they say there’s a great deal of abuse and inhumane treatment in harvesting wool and I’d agree with them 100%. You see, I was a part-time sheep shearer in my younger days and I gotta tell you, shearing sheep was the hardest work I’ve ever done and my body took the most abuse of any job I’ve ever had. To the sheep it was like getting a haircut but to me it was like being in a big washing machine in the spin cycle for three hours.

The Environmental Protection Agency is reconsidering its to continue allowing so-called cyanide bombs to kill pests like coyotes and foxes. Administrator Andrew Wheeler said Thursday that the "issue warrants further analysis and additional discussions by EPA" with the government agencies that use the devices. The about-face came after news reports in the last week highlighted the decision and concerns about reauthorizing the devices, which use sodium cyanide. The concerns -- including thousands expressed to EPA during a public comment period -- include the dangers to people and other animals that encounter the devices...

DODGE CITY, Kan. Tyson Foods but until the plant gets back on its feet, area ranchers have some concerns, specifically about where they'll send their cattle for slaughter. Last Friday's fire took offline the plant that processes six percent of American cattle. Brian Winter, owner of Winter Livestock Incorporated in Dodge City specializes in cow calf, feeder and stocker cattle. He hosts sale barn auctions on Wednesdays and this week, expressed concern with prices dropping. He says live cattle is at its lowest rate since Oct. 2016 and feeder cattle is at its lowest rate since March 2017. "There was a negative response in the cattle industry to the loss of capacity," Winter says of the fire to the Finney County Tyson plant. "So when that went

New Mexico state legislative leaders and Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham outlined proposals Wednesday to write definitions for domestic terrorism into state statutes to bolster investigatory powers and possibly stiffen penalties related to hate crimes. Lujan Grisham, a Democrat, said changes to state statutes regarding terrorism-related crimes would be aimed at strengthening investigative capabilities. Attorney General Hector Balderas said proposals could include some stronger penalties for hate-related crimes. Democratic House Speaker Brian Egolf described the possible creation of a domestic terrorism unit, modeled after efforts by state prosecutors to combat internet-based crimes against minors. Senate Majority Leader Peter Wirth said the El

...But in the Southwest, it’s the increasing lack of water that’s threatening the agricultural economy, as well as the welfare of 40 million Americans and part of the food supply for the entire nation. The 1,450-mile-long Colorado River serves as a source of water for seven states, but climate change and overuse have caused its levels to drop precipitously. From 2000 to 2014, flows declined 19% from the 20th century average, according to American Geophysical Union Water Resources research. By 2100, the river flow could fall as much as 55%. With big western cities clamoring for a share of the river’s diminishing supply, desert farmers with valuable claims are making multimillion dollar deals in a bid to delay the inevitable. It’s an echo of

Matt Farwell. If there’s a secret, New Mexico will try to keep it. The Land of Enchantment has gotten a lot of practice over the years, well before the now-late Jeffrey Epstein purchased the Zorro Ranch south of Santa Fe. The world’s first nuclear weapon,. was detonated in New Mexico on June 18, 1945. Tourists can now visit the Trinity Site on the U.S. Army’s White Sands Missile Range to view the epicenter of a highly secret government conspiracy involving top physicists called the Manhattan Project. Trinity is a 111-mile straight line from Zorro Ranch. Consider what lies within this way: Find a map. Make Epstein’s New Mexico operation the center. Put the Trinity site at the edge of its radius. What else is secret and radioactive and inside t.

Near the Newtown, Conn., school massacre. It’s time to address mental health and gun-free zones. A. few things you won’t hear about from the saturation coverage of the Newtown, Conn., school massacre:. Mass shootings are no more common than they have been in past decades, despite the impression given by the media. In fact, the high point for mass killings in the U.S. was 1929, according to criminologist Grant Duwe of the Minnesota Department of Corrections. Incidents of mass murder in the U.S. declined from 42 in the 1990s to 26 in the first decade of this century. The chances of being killed in a mass shooting are about what they are for being struck by lightning. Until the Newtown horror, the three worst K–12 school shootings ever had taken

In the mid-1970s the NRA had to make a choice. As crime continued to spike across the nation, and politicians increasingly embraced gun control measures, an internal debate broke out about the future of the organization. Initially, the NRA’s more passionate Second Amendment advocates were purged. NRA leadership would fire more than 70 activists during the early part of the decade. By 1976, the organization’s board decided to relocate its headquarters from Washington to Colorado to extract itself from political debate altogether. It wasn’t until a 1977 NRA convention in Cincinnati that politically minded members pulled off something of a coup, wresting the organization from the nonpolitical wing. Many of today’s gun control advocates like to.

An autopsy found that financier Jeffrey Epstein sustained multiple breaks in his neck bones, according to two people familiar with the findings, deepening the mystery about the circumstances around his death. Among the bones broken in Epstein’s neck was the hyoid bone, which in men is near the Adam’s apple. Such breaks can occur in those who hang themselves, particularly if they are older, according to forensics experts and studies on the subject. But they are more common in victims of homicide by strangulation, the experts said. The details are the first findings to emerge from the autopsy of Epstein, a convicted sex offender and multimillionaire in federal custody on charges of sex trafficking. He died early Saturday morning after guards

Luis Leyva ...Congresswoman Torres Small’s voting record today is a disappointment to voters in her district, especially to all the community members who so eagerly mobilized to defeat … Yvette Herrell. Although the congresswoman voted to pass the Dream and Promise Act that would protect many people from Trump’s deportation machine, she also voted to add $4.5 million to beef up the deportation force in the Department of Homeland Security’s budget. She has continued to vote for more funds and recently voted to commend CBP, the same agency responsible for family separations and the deaths of members of our immigrant communities – most recently a 52-year-old man from Nicaragua – the 13th death under U.S. custody since December 2018.
