Message from Gale Moore, Publisher

I’ve had numerous requests about rates for ads on this website and they are now posted!

March signals Saint Patrick’s Day on the 17th, so I’ve included some classic Irish (and other) recipes on the recipe blog.

Now you can access many recipes from former Gazettes, copy and print them out. Go to, click on Recipes tab, then click on "Blog." Scroll down to find the recipe you'd like to see (or copy) and click on it. More recipes will continue to be posted, so take a look, and Happy Cookin'!

The closing date for the April Gazette will be March 21. The April issue will go to press right after the Dutch Oven results and photos are finalized. Remember to send in your community events for spring celebrations, and future months, for our Calendar.

I hope that local business owners in Southwest New Mexico and Southeastern Arizona will contact me this month, to sign on as advertisers for this year’s Forever Frontier Visitors Guide! Information is included in this issue: take a look and give me a call (or email) to reserve your space now. I expect to go to press in early April, with distribution beginning soon after.

Sincere thanks to Gazette readers, our writers and contributors, and the loyal advertisers (who make this publication possible) — you are appreciated!

PS - Don't forget, you can become a friend of the Gazette for free!

See you down the road
