Poor Coach Alford. A sweet sixteen would have earned him more money than most Albuquerqueans have made in their lifetime.

Really?  Most Albuquerquens will not make 50,000.00 in a lifetime?

I click on "Downtown building that once served as newspaper offices will find new life as artist's and architect's studio" and for a moment see the small building they are talking about (looks like the one at 7th and Silver) -- then a big gray box blocks out the entire story.  I guess they don't want me to read it.

Albuquerque Publishing Co. sells Downtown building
Damon Scott Reporter- Albuquerque Business First
A building that has been owned by the Albuquerque Publishing Co. for decades has sold for about $500,000, according to broker Dave Hill of NAI Maestas & Ward.
The 5,950-square-foot building is located at 700 Silver Ave. SW, near the downtown Flying Star Cafe. It has 20 on-site parking spaces, including street parking.
The building has no tenants and has been vacant for some time, according to Hill. Part of the building was previously occupied by the New Mexico Press Association. The NMPA moved to 7777 Jefferson Blvd. NE on February 21.
Hill said the new owner is local artist Jared Tarbell. He said Tarbell and his wife, who is an architect, will be using the building for an art studio and architectural firm.
The Albuquerque Publishing Co. is the production and distribution agent for the Albuquerque Journal.
Along with Hill, the transaction was handled by Martha Carpenter.

Thanks for the info, Bluegoo!  The transaction is of some interest to me since I live quite nearby and am always interested to see if anything useful -- any shop or service -- moves in that I may wish to visit.
