on the Way
April 6 was a great day for the Dutch Oven Cook-Off in Glenwood!
the color pages of photographs in this issue. (see
also PDF files)
Summer is definitely getting close — the trees are greening
up nicely and the sun is definitely warmer.
My classic Ford F250 is still for sale in Silver City and
I’ve reduced the price to $5200. (See the classifieds
for details) Go by and see it at Taylor Truck & Auto on
Hudson St. I need to sell this too-large-for-me truck so I
can buy a medium-size pickup.
Congratulations to all the fine young people graduating from
high school this month. This issue we feature the Cliff and
Reserve High School Seniors, and next month, we'll feature
graduates from Quemado.
Email Purgatory ~ The frustration I endured from March 25
through April 25 is an experience I wouldn't wish on anyone.
April was a hellish series of delays, as to my modem and email,
as some of you know.
On March 26, my old modem died.When I bought a new one, I
discovered that Cybermesa, my ISP, had no clue why sending
emails had slowed down to dial-up speed.
I went through two computer technicians, bought a new computer,
then another modem, had my phone lines checked and re-checked.
I finally discovered that yes, the problem was the first “new” modem
and even after I replaced it again, Cybermesa couldn’t
figure out the problem.
So after having the same email for 13 years, I’ve had
to change my ISP to CenturyLink, and my email is now — firstname.lastname@example.org.
My email@example.com email will continue to work through July
so that I can get everyone used to my NEW email. Thank you
for your patience!
We don’t realize how much we depend on our modern conveniences
until something goes wrong. My advice after this situation
is — if you have an old modem (that could die on you
any day), you’d better call your ISP and get your ducks
in a row before you find yourself in a similar mess.
The June Gazette has a closing date of May 18. Plans at this
time are to print Friday of MemorialWeekend and have June issues
delivered the last week in May.
Remember to submit your Fourth of July community events for
this issue so our readers will have time to plan their holiday!
Again this summer I will be combining the July and August
Gazette into one: coming out in late June. The July-August
issue will have a closing date of June 20 or so.
This is the Gazette's 150th issue! And we’re midway
into our 13th year. Thank you to all our loyal readers and
See you down the road ...
