TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES — Sonia Marquez and Cherish Miller, both 17, rode their horses along N.M. 51 leading to Elephant Butte Reservoir on a crisp November evening after school.

Riding horses is one of the few things for teens to do in this laid-back town of 6,400 residents, once famous for its mineral hot springs and for renaming itself after a radio quiz show.

    Thank you Staci!
    Your article is superb, and reflects a great deal of the sentiment felt by residents and businesses here in Sierra County. It is informative, interesting, diverse, and extremely refreshing. It shows that you really did your research, digging deep in the community to pull together the consensus of opinions that has been sorely missed in most of the cheer leading and flag waving articles that have been appearing recently in the press.

    Good work again, Stacy. And thanks to Jane Phillips, credited for many of the photos. I highly recommend all readers here to check out the photo gallery above, as they all have extra info & captioning, a great addition to the story text. I will refrain from my usual ritual of ridiculing the "Space"port generally, but do wish I could leave pithy comments below the photos as called for. Absent that; the firefighters (pictured washing their sweet SUV) must have the sweetest & easiest job there. If they're lucky, they'll get to take out the humongous "Crash 1" vehicle when Bill Richardson needs a lift from the boarding gate to the loading platform.
