  • Plane carrying Rubio makes emergency landing in NM

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — An airport official says a small plane carrying U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and his wife made an emergency landing in Albuquerque.

    Albuquerque Aviation Police Chief Marshall Katz says no one was injured when the plane landed Saturday afternoon at Albuquerque International Sunport. Airport spokesman Daniel Jiron says the Cessna Citation 10 had been bound for Des Moines, Iowa, after departing from Las Vegas.

    The Republican had tweeted that he was en route to a Mitt Romney rally in Iowa. He posted later that he gave a speech via cell phone.

  • Anast, Martinson lead after day one

    With a big opening round in the men’s championship flight, Kurt Anast will head into today’s play as the man to catch.
    Anast had the low round of the tournament Saturday, a red-hot 3-under par to take the day-one lead at the Los Alamos City Championship.
    The City Championship will continue at 9 a.m. today. The tournament is being played at Los Alamos Golf Course.
    Scores from the tournament were all over the place Saturday, with a 14-stroke spread in the men’s title flight and a 21-shot spread in the senior men’s flight. Early last week, a leak had been detected in an underground pipe that feeds LAGC’s front nine holes and watering the course has been an issue — work begins to repair the leak Monday.

    The Valles Caldera Trust (VCT) is seeking public input on a comprehensive public access and use plan for the Valles Caldera National Preserve.
    An Environmental Impact Study (EIS) assessing the pros and cons of the options was completed in June. It reads, “The plan proposes the development of facilities and infrastructure to provide increased access onto and within the preserve and to protect natural and cultural resources from the impacts of increased visitation. The plan would also guide programs and activities for public access and use for recreation, education, scientific research, and other purposes.”
