    Governor Susana Martinez had been on the job for a little less than six months.

    And she had been to Los Alamos only once as the governor.

    That would change.

    On the night of June 26, while the Las Conchas Fire blazed through the Jemez Mountains, the governor was driven to the Emergency Operations Center where she stayed for a couple of hours.

    The process began in February. A subcommittee comprised of councilors Fran Berting, Geoff Rodgers and Vincent Chiravalle worked with Prothman Company, an executive recruitment firm, to establish qualifications and evaluate candidates.

  • Jay Miller: Film industry revisited

    Republicans and the Hollywood crowd seldom seem to be a very good match. 

    Good reasons exist for this standoff. With a few notable exceptions, Hollywood types are more liberal in their thinking than most Republicans, especially on social issues. 

  • Patriots, 49ers lead Pro Bowl rosters

    NEW YORK (AP) — The usual names — Tom Brady, Ray Lewis, Troy Polamalu, Tony Gonzalez — are headed for Hawaii, barring a trip to the Super Bowl.

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo.  (AP) --  The Denver Broncos might have to face former quarterback Kyle Orton with two backup safeties if Brian Dawkins and Quinton Carter can’t play in Sunday’s showdown with the Kansas City Chiefs, who are trying to deny Tim Tebow a trip to the playoffs.
