  • Big moments in dull election

    SANTA FE —  About the only exciting results of New Mexico’s primary elections were the 1st Congressional District Democratic race and a GOP state Senate race in the northeastern part of the state. None of the statewide races were nailbiters.
     Of course, there weren’t many statewide races. New Mexico saves those for non-presidential years. The lack of much excitement kept voter participation down in the low 20-percent range.
    Albuquerque provided a classic congressional thriller for Democrats. State Sen. Eric Griego was the early leader and appeared to have the nomination locked up with many union and environmental endorsements and donations.

  • Tension rises after 25 years

    Getting the opportunity to play music with a teen idol would be a dream come true for most people. Los Alamos National Laboratory engineer Tom Gattis is no different, only, his dream was realized last spring.
    It all began for Gattis when he and three other guys formed a band in the Baltimore area in the 1980s. Like a lot of musicians, they met through a newspaper ad and once formed, decided to call themselves Deuce.
    Gattis said he was raised on music by Judas Priest, UFO and the Scorpions, as well as classical music, all of which influenced him as a singer.
