Local media outlets have been up in arms about the massive dollars that public agencies spend on “hired gun” lobbyists to get money out of the State legislature. And it's true--it’s a pretty outrageous system we have for divvying up our public dollars.
Larry Barker of Channel 13 did a…Continue

It looks like El Vado Motel owner Richard L. Gonzales is up to his shenanigans again. There's a new demolition application of the historic Route 66 motel before the Landmarks and Urban Conservation Commission meeting on Wednesday.
This coming Wednesday, the…
The Alibi blog recently discovered our state insect, The Tarantula Hawk Wasp. Laura Marrich writes:
My day job is one of those that some people find "neat". I get to do a morning show with my wife, and our really good friend on 100.3 The Peak. Usually we touch on "light hearted" stuff, or will spend way too much time discussing the downfall of "Brit Brit Y'all". Some would say we spend way too much time "yapping' and not enough time playing music. Others wonder why we even play music....we should just keep talking. And then there are those who claim we work for the "great Satan"....and…Continue
About this time of year I start to get antsy about starting the garden but long experience gardening here has taught me we can expect killing freezes at least into mid-March and frequently into April. There's nothing I like better than fresh-from-the-garden salad so a few years ago I decided to scratch the early planting itch and make some raised beds that can easily be set up as "hoop houses" so I can grow those early salad…Continue
Today I went for a little walk in my Huning Highlands neighborhood (East Downtown). I was walking by the corner of Coal and Edith and thought, too bad that boarded up structure looks so sad and forgotten.

Well, it was bound to happen. Between working lots of extra hours at my new job and then getting very sick, I don't have a post! Although I have many stories waiting to be written, they all require research that I haven't gotten to yet.
So to make up for not having a post this week, I have a little gem on my page for your viewing pleasure. I'll be back in a couple of…Continue
The New Mexico Legislature's Senate Finance Committee members showed true colors this week. They axed half a million from the Energy and Minerals Department budget in order to disable enforcement of environmental laws. Nice shade of industry hack with highlights of
