  • Our people: ENMU theater professor prepares to retire

    Grant McGee, The Staff of The News|Updated May 18, 2024

    So why did Anne Beck decide to teach theater? "I'm a second-generation theater professor. My father was a theater pro fessor," she said. "When I was kid growing up in Lawrence, Kan., our house was near the university theater. I was in some college plays as a kid. I kind of followed my dad," she said. The retiring Eastern New Mexico University professor shared some details about her life with The News on Tuesday. Q: Where were you born? A: I was born on an Army base, Fort...

  • Night skies seem to bring me closer to God

    Karl Terry, Local columnist|Updated May 18, 2024

    Night skies are maybe as close as a person can come to God. If you’ve ever rolled out of a sleeping bag in the mountains at 2 a.m. you know what I mean. You can turn away from a campfire and look at the skies, but it’s not the same as getting up in the dark after you’ve been asleep a few hours. The stars can be so close it seems you could reach out and grab them. If the moon is up and anything bigger than a sliver you have a blazing nightlight to go potty by. I kicked myself f...

  • Lucky to have a mom who's prayed me through hard times

    Karl Terry, Local columnist|Updated May 11, 2024

    I’ve frequently told folks that I raised my mother. I’m not totally sure she appreciates me saying that, but I love her and it’s just tough if she doesn’t like it. I am the oldest of three siblings and I was born while she was in her teen years. So by the time I was 10 and becoming more responsible, she was in her mid-20s. Couple those facts with everyone telling me I was born an old man, and there you have the recipe. I mostly liked working side-by-side with my mother,...

  • Little League sock styles have changed since I was a kid

    Karl Terry, Local columnist|Updated May 4, 2024

    One of my fondest memories of starting Pee Wee baseball was getting home with the uniform and wondering what I should do with those fancy striped socks. First of all, they didn’t have any toes and playing without toes in my socks didn’t sound like a great idea. After discussing the situation with others I found out that I needed to put a pair of white athletic socks on first and then the stirrup socks. As I got a little older, I became aware that the more you stretch tho...

  • Heavy winds and weeds herald spring in New Mexico

    Karl Terry, Local columnist|Updated Apr 27, 2024

    In some parts of the world, the arrival of spring may be a bit subtle. Here in eastern New Mexico, it’s pretty plain. Just look for a brown tinge to the sky and reduced visibility. The wind is a given in the springtime around here and because it arrives before enough rain arrives to establish ground cover the dust starts to blow and we have sandstorms. Some years the rain doesn’t arrive and we can have brown skies all the way through May. That might sound a bit like I’m of th...

  • Our people: Sculptor aims for 'common-sense' gun laws

    Grant McGee|Updated Apr 27, 2024

    When Corey Pickett says he's a sculptor, a picture may pop up in one's mind of the man working in stone, wood, metal and such. But Pickett's works are in textiles and upholstery materials, and he creates firearms. The News learned more about Pickett's art and his life in a Thursday conversation. Q: You were born in Georgia. What do you remember about that area? A: I was born in Brunswick, Ga. I remember water on the coast, a slow pace of life and just freedom to explore my...

  • Here's hoping I get my tax return before the fall

    Karl Terry, Local columnist|Updated Apr 20, 2024

    I apologize in advance. This column is going to be a bit of a rant. You see tax season just ended and this one stressed me a bit. I can’t say for sure, but I would guess it has been decades since I actually mailed my taxes off at the post office thanks to e-file. The IRS and all the tax preparing folks and tax software actually push the option as a convenience that will speed up your refund by weeks. Some of those years I was paying so it wasn’t that exciting, but in rec...
