Morning Fix: South of the Border

  • More on the City Council "takeover." I think Councilor Peña is probably right that there might have been more constructive ways of getting a message across. But I don't think shutting things down and making arrests is an answer either. Also: terrible comments, even for the TV News…

Recovery Cat 4.9.2011

Single locusts are quiet, meditative, sessile things, but when locusts are added to other locusts, they become excited, change color, undergo spectacular endocrine revisions, and intensify their activity until, when there are enough of them packed shouloder to shoulder, they vibrate and… Continue

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

Waiting for my government bailout.

I went to college from 1996-2000. While I was going every financial aid advisor I met with informed me since I was going into education if I taught in a low income school my student loans would be forgiven by the government after 5 years. I racked up $50,000.00 in loans which was the best thing I ever did for my self.

June 3rd: Primary day

There's More To That Red Light Camera Than A Ticket

Recently I was involved in a spirited debate about the validity of red light cameras here in Albuquerque. Many involved were coming from the perspective of road safety and their personal experiences on the roads of Albuquerque. Some stated that they wished they were on every corner, others stated that their experience with an expensive ticket had taught them to drive more carefully... or at least drive more carefully when going through an intersection with a camera. What I thought was being… Continue
