Goodbye and thank you

Goodbye and thank you

Thank you. That’s the main thing I want to say, after these two and a half a years running New Mexico Telegram. This is going to be kind of rambling, because that’s part of my style and I think it’s a fitting way to go out. Thank you to each and every one of you readers. From the thousands who read the pre-election coverage to the die hards who stuck with me through July of a year … Read entire article »

I will keep New Mexico Telegram up as an archive, but the plan is that there will not be any new content produced … Read entire article »

Two entrants got 14 of the races right. These numbers are without the Ray Powell/Aubrey Dunn race results, though the top two entrants each chose … Read entire article »
