    “What does the Christian Bible have to say about reincarnation?”— Nirman

  • President: Budget spending compromise within reach

    President Barack Obama says Democrats and Republicans are close to an agreement on the amount of spending cuts needed in order to keep the government operating and avoid a government shutdown.
    Obama says there are details and differences to work out, but he says a compromise is within reach.
    The president made the comments during a visit Friday to a shipping facility in Landover, Md. He spoke shortly after the release of a positive jobs report for March.
    Obama said it would be “the height of irresponsibility” to shut down the government as the economy starts to recover. Lawmakers must reach an agreement by April 8 in order to avoid a shutdown.
    Both sides are discussing cutting spending by an amount in the $33 billion range.

    A Department of Homeland Security grant could help the county council determine whether or not to invest millions of dollars in an upgrade of the county’s public safety communications system.

    Los Alamos County Council voted 6-1 to approve a $68,775 New Mexico Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management grant during a meeting in March.

  • FBI takes aim at public corruption

    The FBI in Albuquerque and its law enforcement partners have announced several initiatives designed to make it easier for New Mexico residents to report public corruption and for the FBI and its partners to work more effectively together.

    A new hotline is available for anyone wanting to report public corruption to the FBI in Albuquerque.

    Public corruption undermines the nation’s security and the people’s trust in their government while wasting billions of tax dollars, said Albuquerque FBI Public Affairs Specialist Frank Fisher Foster, adding that public corruption includes corrupt public officials, border corruption, economic stimulus fraud, abuse of government contracting authority and many other examples.
