Morning Fix: Ti-i-i-i-me Is On Our Side (Yes It Is)

    •    Three years after being indicted for embezzlement and other crimes, former NMSOS Rebecca Vigil-Giron was still waiting for her trial.  District judge says, "Forgetaboutit!"

    •    The Texas Tech Lady Raiders invaded The Pit last night.  The Lobos have been on the losing end of a 13-2 record for the rivalry.  Well, "Forgetaboutit!"  Lobos win a squeaker, 65-61.

    •    The Post Office is hiring here, but the jobs don't look too good:  $12.38 to $16/hour and NO benefits.   But, as I was told once as a teenager, "Keep it up kid and we might hire you full-time!"

    •    A gem from the Free Stuff section on Craig's List:  a nice-looking Kawai organ in good condition.  (I deleted my attempt at a smart sounding "organ in good condition" comment, but it had to do with looking for work.)

    •    The FBI enters the Mary Han case.  Finally someone we trust taking a look at this.

    •    As if a 5-hour wait to vote wasn't enough, Republicans get a judge to stop the vote count in Sandoval County.  What a mess…and why are they still counting ballots?

    •    Take the afternoon off.  The Lobo men play University of Illinois-Chicago this afternoon at 2:00 on the CBS Sports Network.

    •    Local start-up makes major fiber-optic breakthrough.

    •    APS says "NO" to classroom refrigerators and microwaves.  Teachers have less than a half hour to take their children to the cafeteria and then eat…with one microwave in the teachers' lounge for maybe 50 people.  "Forgetaboutit!"


    •    Hanna Skandera and Sen. John Arthur Smith weigh in on test scores.

The Lady Lobos have been the flagship hoops team in New Mexico since the turn of the century, including a Sweet 16 and may continue in that role for the rest of the century. Lobos? Forgetaboutit. Marginal NCAA/NIT tourney program. Drop football, reallocate resources and they could be in the class with other non-football program schools like Creighton and Seattle.

I don't know why teachers feel they need to eat.  Aren't they there to teach children and raise test scores?  They can hardly do that if they waste time eating.


(yes, that was sarcasm above)

No appliances in the work space is typical restrictions in most businesses.  It can be and is a hazard. The union should supply the teachers with more microwaves in the lounge though.

Teachers cannot just leave the classroom and take a coffee break (or even a bathroom break) without making arrangements for someone to "babysit" the students.  They don't have time to go out for lunch. Yeesh - what's wrong with a low wattage microwave and/or hot water dispenser in the classroom?  At my workplace, which is a fed-government facility, we are allowed small appliances as long as they are plugged directly into an outlet, and have a metal plate under them to prevent any possible burning.  And we get regular inspections from the base fire marshal.  Give these poor teachers a break, a couple of times a day!  (you said it, OBTS!!)
