Our Budget

I'm getting ready for our Revenue Stabilization Committee meeting in Farmington and keep thinking about "the lesser of evils" and thought I'd reach out and see what others feel about the following potential situation. Lets say our state funding continues to fall, and we have stark choices. Hopefully it won't come to this but, what would you do?

- cut services (social service, schools, universities, government headcount?)

- cut headcount and/or across the board 10% cuts for… Continue

More About Politics than Public Safety

In response to Mayor Chavez’ recent call for adding 100 more police officers to the APD payroll,

I would like to applaud him for the idea. Absolutely—we need more police officers on the street and this should have been done a long time ago. The Mayor is also right when he says law and order should be the administration’s number one priority.

Unfortunately, with less than 90… Continue

Marc Schiff sentenced - "A good day for justice"

Following today’s sentencing of Marc Schiff, Richard called the news “a good day for justice, but a sad reminder of the corruption that happens too often in our city and state.”

Schiff, the architect for the scandal-ridden Bernalillo County Metropolitan Court project, admitted guilt to charges of mail fraud and conspiracy after he wrote false invoices that were used to pay kickbacks to public officials. Schiff was sentenced to 12 months plus a day in prison, and ordered to repay,… Continue

Getting the Batters Edge..its a hit!

Since Duane and I decided to take Tuesdays off from our toil in the rug mines we do stuff in Burque that we never normally have time for. Usually its the ol' run round town doing errands, library, petstore, TJS etc. But this Tuesday we wanted something to take the edge off running a retail store....insert google search for batting cage! Duke City Fix came up for… Continue

Richard Romero wants citizen input on public safety

The recent string of tragic events in our community serve as a sobering reminder of the public safety problems that our city has been plagued with for many years. Its unfortunate that in a city the size of Albuquerque, the current mayor deems it necessary to be accompanied by an armed, three man security detail during his daily and after hours activities.

Richard Romero has a definite… Continue

Mission Statement

I have been living in Albuquerque for 4 years, and in that time I have made 2 good friends that I see on a regular basis. (Ironically, both of these friends are women I met during my first stint in Albuquerque, over 10 years ago.) No offense to my friends, but I find this number unsettling. Also unsettling, and on a related note: I have dated, but have not had any major relationship (2+ months) in these 4 years. I have heard from others that for some reason, despite… Continue

Day 1 of the world's only Slam Poet Laureate Program

It's almost here. After one year of planning, meetings, fund-raising in a less than prime economy, promotions, meetings, talent scouting, and meetings....the world's first Slam Poet Laureate program is preparing to take off. And what better place than right here in the 505?

After Albuquerque hosted the world's largest national poetry slam in 2005, carrying away the titel in the process, it seems only right that we should again be the torch-bearers and take the next progressive step in… Continue

Los mejores dias del año...

This weekend kicks off my summer event adventures. The Alibi's weekly newsletter, delivered directly to my inbox, has been teeming with great ideas on things to check out. This weekend I don't want to miss one of the showings of 200 Motels at The Guild or Jan MacKell's talk at Bookworks about the wild women of the wild west. It's one of my favorite topics.

For more details, check it out.

Other possible adventures include:

- day trip to Madrid,… Continue

Business Owners: check your Google Maps' "Street View"

Albuquerque is ahead of the curve with Google Maps. Type in your address for an Albuquerque listing (private or commercial) on Google Maps and most anyone's address now has a Street View (has for some time now). This is 'cool' but what if Google Maps says your business is closed? I am exasperated with Google Maps 'help'. Turns out I am very much not alone in a problem I have experienced.

Several months ago I… Continue

Landfill For Sale, One Piece At A Time

photo: "Buckminster's Nightmare" - a perfectly good, but apparently obsolete geodesic dome is proudly demolished by Coronado Salvage. Bummer, would've looked great mounted on my rooftop!

If you've never been to Coronado Salvage, and you don't mind getting down and dirty, you're in for a mind-blowing experience. Coronado, which is located on south…
