Ben Lilly was a bear and lion hunter, probably the most successful hunter New Mexico has ever known. He was a solitary man who roamed the Gila Wilderness, the back country of eastern Arizona and the remote heights of Mexico's Sierra Madre. Like many loners, he had his peculiarities.

Wagner supports co-op members
I have digested El Defensor Chieftain articles titled, “Co-op investigation finds Wagner at fault” (Page 5 May 15 edition) and “Wagner censured at co-op meeting” (Page 6 May 30 edition). Both, by my standards, are the end result of Wagner having the courage of his convictions.
