Russell Anglin is the managing editor for the Quay County Sun. His most recent column focused his stepdad’s role in his life.
My food columnist role has expanded to include “cooking show hostess.” Sort of. Freedom New Mexico has started a parenting section that runs online and in a quarterly newspaper section. I do a monthly online video demonstration of cooking with kids. The first demonstration, “Fruity Peanut Butter Pitas,” is at www.parenthoodnm.com. I’ve also filmed demos […]
Russell Anglin is the senior writer for the Quay County Sun, our sister paper. His latest column focused on his fear of centipedes.
Russell Anglin is the senior reporter for the Quay County Sun and writes a weekly column. Here is his most recent effort.
“HEH, HEH, HEH,” repeated the poorly disguised voice on the telephone. “HEH, HEH!” I knew who it was. Barney. My friend Barney from New Jersey who has been a constant tormentor my entire journalism career. Barney is pretty much unemployable, enjoys an occasional cocktail or eight, has little to occupy his time, would rather dog […]
Paul Gessing is president of New Mexico’s Rio Grande Foundation. He addressed the state pension issue in a recent column submission:
This one-year anniversary of column-writing seems like a good time to recount my attempts at taking friends’ advice to stop and smell the roses. But, with 16,000 varieties, it’s been a thorny task. I’ve whiffed a rainbow of climbers, floribundas, grandifloras, heritages, hybrid teas, miniatures and shrubs, but the appeal has eluded me. They don’t […]
I was hard put to come up with something to write for my column this week, because due to being ill last week, I haven’t done anything since New Year’s Eve. Not going to events definitely puts a damper on writing about them. Then as I thought, it occurred to me that I had experienced […]
It seems a certain violent Arizona resident would have done well to have read my column last week. The message that right and wrong are universal rather than subjective is something he apparently needed. Of course, he may not have understood. If he is simply willing to commit evil acts without regard to right or […]
If there is one thing my readers have taken from my column, it is probably that I still have the mentality of a 10-year-old kid when it comes to certain things, namely toys and special events. Christmas is no exception to this fact. It might sound cheesy and clich
Dec. 26, 1956: The Portales Daily News (By the Way column): People here seemed to stick pretty close to the dining table or the couch in the parlor (today). There were few to be seen on the streets, and the business district was vacant except for the bus depot as Wayne Orendorff stayed with his […]
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 […]
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 […]
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). Shelby writes, “Heyy its Shelby.” I respond, “Who?” She responds, […]
Mona Charen writes a conservative political column distributed through Creators Syndicate. Here’s a recent sampling:
Russell Anglin writes a weekly column for the Quay County Sun in Tucumcari. Here’s a “snip” from his recent offering on baseball slugger Manny Ramirez:
By Argen Duncan: PNT senior writer Editor David Stevens says he could eat tuna patties at every meal. He wanted to know when I was going write a column about them, so I tried some. The tuna patties taste nice and aren’t too fishy. They’re also quick to make and not too easy to screw […]
By Tibor Machan: Freedom New Mexico columnist So Bill Gates sold me some software when he was still in that business. He was then immensely rich, compared to me. How unfair, you say? But Bill took his gains from this trade and used it to feed starving African children, while I used the software I […]
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. […]
