  • Claims mount from wildfire

    Anyone who suffered property damage or other losses attributable to last summer’s Las Conchas Fire was invited to participate in a conference to discuss potential claims and possible recovery.

    The Albuquerque-based Branch Law Firm together with Kenneth Roye, an attorney from Chico, Calif. specializing in hazard tree claims, hosted the conference at the Sandia Resort and Casino in Albuquerque Saturday.

    “This is our second conference, our first was Nov. 19 in Los Alamos where about 30 families showed up,” said Roye. “They all had some type of damage – structure, timber, vehicle.”

  • Dispute looms over Governor’s tax cut proposals

    SANTA FE (AP) — When the Legislature convenes Tuesday, lawmakers and Gov. Susana Martinez will consider doing what was unthinkable in the past three years because of New Mexico’s sour economy: Cutting taxes.

    With the economy on the mend, the governor is proposing $55 million in tax cuts to boost businesses and encourage them to create jobs. But those tax reductions likely will turn into one of the biggest disputes between the Republican governor and the Democratic-controlled Legislature, which has been forced to slash state spending since 2009 to balance the budget. Many Democrats hoped this year’s session would allow them to restore recent cutbacks in programs and services.

  • Pile Burns Continue

    Burn Boss Bill Armstrong ignites a pile of Ponderosa pine slash during Friday’s burn operation by the Santa Fe National Forest and the Los Alamos County Parks Division. Pile burns will continue through Monday in Walnut, Pueblo and Bayo canyons.

  • Weekend lessons

     I attended my son’s first basketball game recently. As I watched these little guys in their oversized shirts stuffed into long baggy shorts, I was hopeful.
     They had fun. They played hard. They were good sports. They tried their best. They learned some lessons, too.
    They learned that you don’t always get the ball. They learned that sometimes you can make mistakes, but you are expected to keep playing and not quit.  They learned that if you fall down, people care, but they want you to get up and keep going.  

  • GOP treated Johnson shabbily

    To the surprise of almost no one, Gary Johnson bid a less than fond farewell to the Republican Party a couple of weeks ago.
    Whereupon, he signed on as a member of the Libertarian Party and announced that he will seek that party’s presidential nomination this year.
    That Johnson opted to make the Libertarian Party his political home is understandable.   
    Philosophically, the former-Republican former governor has always evidenced libertarian propensities with an ill-disguised disdain for government and what he deems its intrusive role in human affairs.
    Nor is his quest of the Libertarians’ presidential nomination in the least unexpected.
