  • Police: NM man facing 16th DWI

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico man is being held on $100,000 cash bail after getting arrested with what officials say is his 16th DWI.

    Police say Johnny Ignacio was arrested Friday after authorities said he passed out behind the wheel and blocked traffic at an Albuquerque intersection.

    Court officials say Ignacio has been convicted eight times of driving drunk and has another case pending in Nevada.

    His arrest comes as Gov. Susana Martinez, public safety officials and groups like Mothers Against Drunk Drivers are vowing once again push lawmakers in January to pass a package of bills aimed at repeat drunken drivers.

    It was unclear if Ignacio had hired an attorney.

  • Fashion Maven: Get to know the latest trend

    Knowing what the latest fall garment is might come as a surprise, but it will be a staple of your wardrobe. Let me give you some hints: It’s warm, it’s roomy, it’s comfortable — that’s right, it’s the cape.
    No, I don’t mean Superman capes that drag on the floor. I mean velvet, felt or knitted capes that come to the hip or mid-thigh. They close in the front, often with large buttons and many are styled after trench coats, but they do not have sleeves. Instead, they have armholes, slits on the sides or no armholes at all.
