Morning Fix: Do the Meanies Have Our Number?

    •    Storybook ending yesterday for Air Force soccer team.  "Heartbreaking loss," blogs UNM Coach Jeremy Fishbein.  The 9th ranked Lobos finished 16-3-1, with two of the losses and the tie being at the hands of the Falcons.  Fishbein moaned, "AF had our number this season."

    •    From the "Welcome to ABQ" File:  Drunk gets cut off, smashes glasses and front door of the just opened BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse.

    •    90 lb. eighth grader shot by a man defending his property.  It was 3:00AM.  Man says, "What do you expect? You know?"

    •    Hellaciously ugly and out-of-place $7,000,000 "Tuscan Estate" in Los Ranchos de Albuquerque gets a property tax bill of only 25 bucks. Don't mention Class Warfare.  He's just another Job Creator whose identity must be hidden to escape artistic ridicule.

    •    Coaches Sports Bar & Grill is closing at the end of the month.

    •    A couple of Meanies on the City Council thinking of legally undoing voter-approved hike in minimum wage.

If you were paid $7.50 per hour in 2002.  Adjusted for inflation that same buying power would be $9.65 in 2012.  So pay up cheap employers heh not my job to work for less than iam worth.

The identity of the owner of that home has already been established.  It is a Budagher.  Can't remember his first name.  Sorry that it puts a little damper on your little rant there about that home.

The real scandal here is that lifestyle (horsey) property gets an agricultural exemption in the first place.  If agriculture is supposed to be production for consumption why were so many apoplectic about the horse slaughter proposal in southern NM?  We had an Assessor a decade or so back who tried to address this issue and he was quickly taken to the woodshed.  Another victory for the one percenters at the expense of the rest of us who must pay our "fair share".

Who sez the Lobos can't play football? Futbol? The success of the men's soccer team is amazing and with proper promotion (where's the Lobo sports info department, with creative ideas) they could draw a lot of people. UNM should go "all in" for basketball, drop American football, and find other uses for the stadium.

I personally do not mind the agricultural exemption.  If not for that, there would be no agricultural land left in Bernalillo County.  Many people, especially those who have modest income, can't afford to have that land taxed as vacant residential property.  They are supposed to use it for agriculture and have to maintain it as such every year.  Lots of valley land has been "in the family" for generations, but would have to be developed if the tax rates were a lot higher.
