  • Reasons behind slow start

    Our state capitol is moving at a snail’s pace so far this year. It took over a week for House standing committees to be named. Almost three months after her election, Gov. Susana Martinez has not filled her cabinet and some other top appointments.

    With so many restaurants in Santa Fe, it’s hard to pick just one. If your trips to the City Different only happen on weekends like mine do, weeding one favorite out from the list can be a task, so when it comes to trying a new place, it better be pretty enticing otherwise I’d just rather stick to what I know.
    On a recent Sunday jaunt down Cerrillos Road, I noticed that Weck’s had opened right next door to Dion’s.
