Former NM Regulation & Licensing, Alcohol & Gaming Division Director now represents the industry who it was once his responsibility to regulate.
Steven Reinhard, who is the most recent resignee of New Mexico's Alcohol & Gaming Division can be found these days representing this holder of most of this state's dispenser liquor licenses. Currently, he represents Western Refining Southwest, Inc. in an Albuquerque Planning Department Zoning application that is opposed, not only by the neighborhood that he resides in but many other neighborhoods nearby and adjacent to a fuel and convenience store owned buy Western at the intersection of Lomas and Louisiana Boulevards.
Reinhart seemed proud of his cozy relationship with Western during his tenure at Alcohol & Gaming when he bolstered his client's reputation as a good player during the January 15 Zoning hearing before hearing examiner Joshua Skarsgard. Skarsgard agreed to the request of neighborhood opponents for a deferral of the hearing due to the applicant's absence of required posting of public notice at their property 15 days prior to this hearing. The hearing is deferred to February 19 at 9:00 AM and is predicted by Skarsgard to be followed by many appeals.

New Mexico Friends of Foster Children (NMFFC) has announced its 2012 scholarship for teens and young adults who grew up in the state’s foster care system and seek community college or university education, a specialized training program, an internship, study abroad, or other education or training program. The scholarships provide $1000 toward educational expenses and will be awarded to up to three aspiring students. The deadline to apply is April 23, and the application is available online at www.nmffc.org under the Applications tab.

About the NMFFC
Founded in 2003, the New Mexico Friends of Foster Children is a NM 501(c)3 dedicated to improving the lives of New Mexico’s children in foster care. NMFFC works with community volunteers, CYFD, and foster parents to help provide for the emotional, educational, and social needs of children who’ve been taken from their homes and placed in foster care. To contact the NMFFC, call (505) 217-0226 or visit www.nmffc.org.

About Children in Foster Care in New Mexico
Each day in New Mexico, there are six children entering the foster system because of abuse and neglect; of those six, three will remain in the system long-term. The number of children in foster care in New Mexico averages around 2,000 at any given time. While funds are provided by the state to foster families for basic living expenses (food, shelter, clothing, toiletries, transportation), funds are not available to help kids be kids. Children in foster care range in ages from newborn to 18 years old. Children are in foster care in most communities in New Mexico, no matter the size of the community.

Curbside Cuisine is on Wednesdays in the International District. Several food trucks are parked on Alcazar east of the Talin Market from 10 am until about 2. Come by for lunch.  There are a few tables and chairs, or you can tailgate or take out. The goal is more business activity in this part of the district, and we hope to grow into more days and more choices. For more information, go to abqfoodcarts.com.
