  • Future of District 43 uncertain

    LAS VEGAS, N.M. – The way in which lawmakers draw new political district boundaries is critically important to taxpayers; the way in which the lines get redrawn can influence who wins an election, who controls the legislature, even which laws get passed.

    While the state population grew by 13.2 percent, according to the 2010 census, Los Alamos did not grow, which makes it vulnerable in the upcoming redistricting process.

  • Vick signs another big contract

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Michael Vick shared some laughs, and offered up an occasional smile. But for the most part, his Tuesday press conference announcing his new contract was handled the same way he’s handled everything since he landed in Philadelphia two years ago.
    All business.
    “The common goal is to bring that ring back to the city of Philadelphia. That’s why we play,” Vick said. “That’s what we’re all working for. As a competitor, I don’t feel my career will be complete without that.”

  • Government sues to block AT&T, T-Mobile merger

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department filed suit Wednesday to block AT&T's $39 billion deal to buy T-Mobile USA on grounds that it would raise prices for consumers.

    The government contends that the acquisition of the No. 4 wireless carrier in the country by No. 2 AT&T would reduce competition.

    At a news conference, Deputy Attorney General James Cole said the combination would result in "tens of millions of consumers all across the United States facing higher prices, fewer choices and lower quality products for mobile wireless services."

    The lawsuit seeks to ensure that everyone can continue to receive the benefits of competition, said Cole.

  • Up to $60B in war funds said wasted

    WASHINGTON (AP) — As much as $60 billion in U.S. funds has been lost to waste and fraud in Iraq and Afghanistan over the past decade through lax oversight of contractors, poor planning and corruption, an independent panel investigating U.S. wartime spending estimates.

    In its final report to Congress, the Commission on Wartime Contracting said the figure could grow as U.S. support for reconstruction projects and programs wanes, leaving both countries to bear the long-term costs of sustaining the schools, medical clinics, barracks, roads and power plants already built with American tax dollars.
