  • Real retirement goals include getting, staying fit

    Karl Terry, Local columnist|Updated Apr 13, 2024

    One of my goals upon retirement was to find ways to become more physically active. I dove right into that task immediately. OK, I didn’t literally dive in, though I could have. I just figured it might hurt my back if I didn’t hit the water exactly right. That’s right, my biggest fitness initiative involves working out in the pool at Eastern New Mexico University. When I say working out in the pool, people automatically assume I’m going to swim laps. When I started, lap swimmin...

  • Give kids a chance and curb their social media use

    Karl Terry, Local columnist|Updated Apr 6, 2024

    Hello, my name is Karl Terry and I’m a YouTube addict. Florida recently became the latest state to restrict the use of social media by children. A good thing I think, maybe a wakeup call to all of us with a screen addiction. If you read Tom McDonald’s opinion column in this paper last Wednesday, please indulge me as I plow across the same furrow. Hopefully I can make it worth your while. His column was actually the second slap across the chops in the space of a week on the...

His Navy tour took him to the Mediterranean, the North Atlantic, Paris, Rome, Croatia, Jerusalem and other locales. And when he was done, he came home.

  • Leroy Thomas embodied service above self

    Karl Terry, Local columnist|Updated Mar 30, 2024

    My first memory of Leroy Thomas was as a youngster in Vacation Bible School. He was a tall, gangly man with glasses and a large Adam’s Apple. He looked kinda funny as he attempted to teach grade-school kids just released from school for the summer how to sing the old VBS classic “Booster, Booster be a Booster.” I know he used emphatic fist pumps to emphasis the word “booster” and I’m pretty sure there was some poultry imitation going on when we got to the “grouchy as...

  • Some spring breaks more memorable than fun

    Karl Terry, Local columnist|Updated Mar 23, 2024

    Hearing about students and families on spring breaks this last week or so has brought out a streak of jealously in me. I did spend a few spring breaks backpacking and actually had one beach vacation when I was in college. It wasn’t your typical beach spring break though. A buddy and I who were both into scuba diving at the time decided Blue Hole and Conchas Lake wasn’t going to cut it any longer. We wanted warm salt water, some reef action and an adventure. After res...

  • It's a long shot, but I'm hoping the Hounds make to the end

    Karl Terry, Local columnist|Updated Mar 16, 2024

    As a friend told me how her young son would narrate the backyard ball games he played by himself, I could relate. It’s called imagination and it was an innate ability that we used back before the internet, social media, video gaming and unlimited television choices. I used my imagination to do the same thing, even after I was much older than he is now. In the late 1960s, Greyhound men’s basketball was the hottest ticket in eastern New Mexico. Greyhound Arena was packed to the...
