  • More about tax reform

    The underlying theme of the 2012 legislative session was taxes, specifically the issue of tax reform. Gov. Martinez put the gross receipts tax on the agenda with her proposals to both exempt certain small businesses from the tax and to reduce the incidence of “pyramiding” which forces businesses and consumers to pay taxes on top of taxes in this state. $40 million of welcome tax relief was included in the budget, but issues remain.

  • Woods goes from inevitable to unpredictable

    PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Phil Mickelson has beaten Tiger Woods the last five times they have played together in the final round.

    But never like this.

    This was a pounding at Pebble Beach. Mickelson shot a 64 on a day when no one else could do better than 67. Woods had a 75 on a day when only four players — none of whom were in contention — shot worse.

    One guy left with the trophy, the other guy left with a lot to think about.
