    Young wildlife don’t need rescuing

    Some wildlife throughout New Mexico have become stressed and or displaced by drought conditions or most recently by wildfires.
    While at first glance the animals may appear to be lost or abandoned, they usually do not need to be rescued. The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish is asking people not to rescue animals such as deer fawns, elk calves, bear cubs, baby birds, or others that may appear to be lost, injured or abandoned. 
    Most often, the wild mothers hide their babies while they forage or drink. Usually, mothers are closer than you think.

  • WR-LA All-Stars drop regional opener

    SANTA FE — In the first round of the Little League Southwest Regional tournament, it looked like the White Rock-Los Alamos All-Stars were in good position to advance to the quarterfinals.
    WR-LA took a solid 4-0 lead early in the ballgame and the favorites from Vidalia, La., had gotten just one ball out of the infield.
    But Vidalia came back to score five unanswered runs, including the tying run in the seventh and the winning run with two outs in the eighth to take a 5-4 extra-inning victory and advance in the regional tournament Friday.
    Santa Fe Metro Little League is hosting the regional this year and, as such WR-LA got an automatic entry since it was the champion of Santa Fe Metro’s district.

  • Delay in scientific ghost town stirs skepticism

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Pegasus Global Holdings' surprise announcement that it was pulling out of plans to build a $1 billion scientific ghost town in eastern New Mexico is stirring skepticism of the private firm's grandiose plans for transforming 15 square miles of this largely rural state into a next-generation research center.

    Lea County had been working closely with the company after winning the bid to house the Center for Innovation, Testing and Evaluation. But "when we started pressing for details, that's when they decided to look elsewhere," county manager Mike Gallagher said.
