  • Hall attends several meetings

    This is the fourth in the series on State House District 43.  The district is large, diverse, and filled with active people and events.  This report is necessarily brief and only covers a few events.  
    First, there is now more background information on the Las Conchas fire, the science, and proposed policy and technical responses.  As I mentioned in my special report, one of the major events was the EPSCoR sponsored meeting on “Fire and Water: The Las Conchas Fire”.  The final meeting report is at:   nmfirst.org/_literature_139628/Town_Hall_on_New_Mexico_Fire_and_Water_Final_Report).

  • Knockoffs hurt jewelry industry

    It’s tourism season again. In New Mexico, that means it’s also time for an uptick in purchases of Indian jewelry. But of all the money spent here for jewelry purportedly made by a Native American, about half is fake.
    Visitors flying in to Albuquerque can walk into inviting shops at the airport and not find a single piece of jewelry created by a Native American artisan, according to Bruce Bernstein, executive director of the Southwest Association for Indian Art.
    They will find instead Native American-looking jewelry made in China, Syria and Jordan. This stuff is out there in abundance, even in the epicenter of jewelry making, Gallup.

  • Much has changed since Title IX

    NORTHFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Emily Miller remembers learning about Title IX during history class, probably sometime in junior high. She’s a little fuzzy on the details, including how and why it came about.
    Every time she steps on the soccer field, though, she feels its effect.
    At 16, Miller can’t even imagine who she’d be without the game. She’s played since kindergarten, and credits soccer for her independence and self-confidence. She’s now a starter on the varsity team at New Trier High School in suburban Chicago.
    “Soccer,” she said, “is what makes me Emily Miller.”
