    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — There's no question it's dry in New Mexico. Many argue that's an understatement, including Gov. Susana Martinez.

    The governor on Tuesday issued a drought declaration covering all of New Mexico, confirming what farmers, ranchers and municipal water utility managers already know.

  • Let the end-of-year insanity begin

    Yesterday I ate goldfish cheese crackers for breakfast. I think I carried my sandwich to several meetings until there was time around 2:30 p.m. to eat it. Welcome to May!
    All of the regular insanity is mixed with the increasing calamity of the rush at the end of the month.
    This is the time that I write down all of those good ideas — things that need to be done and things I am contemplating for the summer — or they will be lost in the shuffle and pile of papers that is accumulating on my kitchen counter.
    This may be the week of cereal for dinner or eating off paper plates so the kitchen can be clean when I go to bed at night.
