With Bush's plunging polls, the downward spiraling
disaster in Iraq, and the Foley sexual predator
scandal in the do-nothing Republican Congress, the Democrats will have
their first opportunity to regain the House, possibly the
Senate, and perhaps a few governorships. Or will they snatch defeat
from the jaws of victory?
Richard Earnheart Bio
In 1989 I fell in love with a
double adobe and ten acres south of
Santa Fe. From then until 2000, Edwenna and I were
fortunate enough to earn a living in the arts while being active in
local environmental and social issues. In response to an illegal
gravel pit near the town of Cerrilos, Edwenna formed the rural
conservation alliance for which I wrote and lobbied.
In 1994 we purchased the
Goddell Warehouse and Feedstore in
downtown Silver City. Upon completion of its restoration, I
won the best restored building Award from the New Mexico Main Street
Association. After moving here from Santa Fe in 2000, we
utilized the space as a contemporary gallery until its sale in 2005.
I view myself as an artist and writer. The natural evolution
of anyone involved in these arts is community
When you discover intuitive action, the illusion of our
separation, one from another, civic activism is inescapable.
a dramatic landscape is an act of personal passion. Sculpting
a community through action and policy is an act of passion,
empowerment, service and incredible reward. To me, this
service in itself has become a higher art.
I am serving on the Democratic State Central Committee and on the Ft
Bayard Executive Committee, a group delegated to outline a
plan for the adaptive re-use of the Ft Bayard complex and the
surrounding federal and state lands.
At home, I am
building a new studio and working on a novel. Three short
stories are also in the works that will complete a collection.
