Holiday time for charity

Clyde Davis Before really getting into this column, I need to make a disclaimer. Either by typographical or some other error, I left readers of this column last week with the impression that my Facebook Veterans’ Day posting was not favorably received. The line should have read “many comments were positive.” Okay. Wonderful things to […]

Decades prove resiliency

This year marked my 30th writing this column. The column runs in 150 papers around the country and in Canada. For the most part they can be described as trade publications, or as a smaller weekly or daily papers. It is impressive to me how many of these publications continue to remain in business when […]

Technology hard on adolescence

The thesis to this column has multiple personality disorder. It just doesn’t know what it wants to be. The idea started on Sunday night, when I got a text from a girl I’ll call Shelby (I’m changing details to protect the innocent, and the guilty).

But Bill took his gains from this trade and used it to feed starving African children, while I used the software I […]

My turn: This sandwich has meat

By Argen Duncan: PNT senior writer When I promised a sandwich idea in my column, Freedom New Mexico photographer Tony Bullocks called for a sneak preview. He didn’t want to wait for the next column because he’s a fan of sandwiches. However, he likes sandwiches with meat, so my cherry-banana sandwich didn’t quite fit him. […]

Columnist follows signs, returns to writing

By Grant McGee: Local Columnist In August 2008 I wrote what I thought was my last column for Freedom New Mexico. Well, surprise, surprise, surprise … I’m back. I never said I’d never be back. I closed my last column with simply, “That’s it … for now.” There were a number of reasons I stopped […]

Everyone loses in NBC shakeup

By Kevin Wilson: PNT columnist I had two major thoughts this week, neither long enough for its own column, but combined enough to be way longer than necessary. Sorry. ••• As a long-time fan of late-night television, it’s troubling to see the mismanagement decimating the tradition of “The Tonight Show.” But nobody at NBC is […]
