Cover, Nov. 15: “Miners Get the Shaft”
At a Glance
The headline “Miners Get the Shaft” and sub headline “New Mexico’s just transition plans promised by the Energy Transition Act haven’t panned out for many displaced” implies that the law wasn’t followed. The article further explains the miners employer, Westmoreland, dropped the ball in fairly distributing the transition funds, not PNM, not the escrow agent, not the ETA. Even worse, this was not a surprise to the miners losing their livelihood, they all well know the company they worked for and its rampant favoritism, now they have to what...bite the bullet and lawyer up? That IS getting the shaft.
We are a bone weary readership, bombarded daily with so much soul wrenching news that often a glance at a headline is as far as we get, not wanting to know the rest of the sad story. To be informed now takes discriminating vigilance. Please help us to know the news by simply stating the who, what, when, where and how knowing many don’t read past the headline of yet another egregious situation.

Wake up with SFR
I have been reading the Reporter’s Morning Word for a very long time. I just wanted to thank [Julia Goldberg] for offering such a well-written, interesting and informative roundup of art, local and state news; and culturally influenced pieces. I wake up to gazillions of emails that need to be addressed, the same as everyone on the planet. And I always look forward to ingesting your offerings. I know it takes a lot of work and research and focus to create this email, and I very much appreciate all that is done to continue your good work.
