  • Smoke in Los Alamos caused by 250-acre Guacamalla Fire

    Los Alamos residents and people from north of Albuquerque to Jemez Springs are seeing increased smoke today from the Guacamalla Fire, approximately 50 miles southwest of Los Alamos and about five miles east of Ponderosa.

    Fuels on the ground received additional moisture over the Labor Day weekend and as a result created a lot of smoke.

    Los Alamos Fire Chief Doug Tucker said there is no cause for concern because the fire will soon burn itself out as it enters property scorched and barren from the Las Conchas Fire.

    Because of the moisture level, the fire is burning slowly with low spread potential. Two miles east of the fire is the Las Conchas Fire burn area, and is not likely to spread east of the burn area.

  • Analysis: Rural New Mexico risks loss in redistricting

    SANTA FE — Rural New Mexico and part of the city of Albuquerque are on the political chopping block as lawmakers consider how to redraw boundaries of legislative districts to adjust for population changes during the past decade.

    Eastern and north-central portions of the state are at risk of losing representation in the Legislature because the region’s growth since 2000 has lagged behind statewide population increases. The same is true for central sections of Albuquerque.
