  • DPU sends out water notice detailing administrative violation

     

    The Los Alamos Department of Utilities sent out a notice to all its customers this week, saying it failed to report its monthly disinfectant residuals to the New Mexico Environment Department/Drinking Water Bureau in a timely fashion.

    The deadline for the report was April 10 and the compliance data was not received until April 23.

    The notice assured its customers that the quality of water was not compromised and it was “a failure to meet an administrative requirement.”

    DPU head John Arrowsmith said the delay was because of “human error.

    “We had the data and we send it to them monthly but they recently imposed a quarterly report for the first time and it didn’t get done.”

  • House votes to hold attorney general in contempt

  • Spanish Market artists share their work

    Anyone who’s ever been to Spanish Market in Santa Fe knows how popular and crowded the event can be. In fact, the crowds sometimes serve as a deterrent for some who would otherwise attend the event.
    What if there was a way to get a look at some of the artists’ work without having to actually go to Spanish Market? Imagine a smaller, indoor venue where market artists display and sell their creations.
    The Arte Norteño Tradicional Spanish Market Art Show, Sale and Reception will be from 4-8 p.m. Friday at the Nick Salazar Center for the Arts at Northern New Mexico College in Española.

  • Art Center Blues

    The word “rhapsody” is so often associated with music that an art exhibit titled “Rhapsody in Blue” might inspire curiosity. One of the definitions for “rhapsody” is an ecstatic expression of feeling or enthusiasm, which makes it completely appropriate for art. There is, of course, a wave of blue through the Fuller Lodge Art Center gallery and the directions artists adventured with the theme should inspire an appreciation in viewers.
