Be bear aware when out and about this spring
People and wildlife are getting outdoors more often now that spring has arrived, and the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish is reminding everyone to be aware of the greater chance of encountering bears and other native wildlife.
Males and young, independent bears are emerging from hibernation this time of year and they will be out foraging and seeking territory of their own, said Rick Winslow, the department’s bear and cougar biologist. Sows with cubs will follow in May, while cubs born last winter that spent this winter with their mother soon will be setting out on their own as their mothers seek to breed again.

Christus St. Vincents Diabetes Center Services
n New Mexico, more than 157,000 people have diabetes, yet only 116,000 know they have it. The incidence of diabetes is higher among adults over age 65 and among the poor. Obesity and poverty also contribute to the prevalence of diabetes.
It's a serious situation for New Mexicans. Untreated and uncontrolled, diabetes can lead to congestive heart failure, heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, blindness, and amputation. It's costly, too. The medical expenses for those with diabetes are more than twice as high than for people without diabetes. It's a disease that stops people from working and living an enjoyable life.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (April 15, 2017) – U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) issued the following statement after the Trump administration announced that it would cut off public access to White House visitor logs:
"President Trump continues to keep the American people in the dark, from refusing to release his taxes to now cutting off public access to White House visitor logs.

Marty Sanchez Links de Santa Fe
Message from the Head Pro
As I write this, the snow is coming down sideways on a dark-green and beautifully kept Marty Sanchez golf course in this first week of April. Although we are currently experiencing a typical northern New Mexico sudden return of winter, we have had very pleasant late winter and start to spring which has allowed for a lot of early season golf opportunities and wonderful early season course conditions. After an overall mild winter, I am very excited looking towards our 2017 golf season. Thanks to our golf course maintenance crew for working hard to get the course in wonderful shape this early in the season.
Sundays Bible Quote
24 But very early on Sunday morning[a] the women went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. 2 They found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance. 3 So they went in, but they didn't find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 As they stood there puzzled, two men suddenly appeared to them, clothed in dazzling robes.
5 The women were terrified and bowed with their faces to the ground. Then the men asked, "Why are you looking among the dead for someone who is alive? 6 He isn't here! He is risen from the dead! Remember what he told you back in Galilee, 7 that the Son of Man[b] must be betrayed into t>
Evidence of Jesus
By Billy Graham
I am he that liveth, and was dead; and behold, I am alive for evermore ...—Revelation 1:18
Certain laws of evidence hold in the establishment of any historic event. Documentation of the event in question must be made by reliable contemporary witnesses. There is more evidence that Jesus rose from the dead than there is that Julius Caesar ever lived, or that Alexander the Great died at the age of 33. ... READ MORE.
