Marijuana sprouts and other interesting facts

By Harold Morgon

Ours is a big state. Few others can boast population centers 492 miles apart, the distance between Farmington and Hobbs.
Life being life, it’s easy to forget that the other corners of the state exist, much less take the time to pay attention to them.
A few years ago, when doing Capitol Report New Mexico, I would survey community newspaper websites, taking a snapshot of local events. Recently I did the same survey. Sunday is the best day.
In Columbus, businessman Philip Skinner wants a separate economic development group for the village.
Southern Luna County gets too little attention from the group in Deming, Skinner says. (Deming Headlight, Sept. 16.)
North of Espanola, increased competition for the Ohkay Casino has meant falling revenue and the layoff of 15 employees.
Additional cuts affect about 100 of the 300 employees. Gambling provides about a quarter of the revenue for Tsay Corp., the corporate entity for Ohkay Owingeh. (Rio Grande Sun, Sept. 15.)
In Farmington, charges of misuse of a San Juan County vehicle that was a take-home car for a manager at the San Juan Adult Detention Center have led to the question of why so many of the county’s 43 take-home cars are driven by jail employees.
After all, jail staffers pretty much go to the same place every day. (Daily Times, Sept. 18.)
