  • Problems found at peanut butter plant in 2010

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Food and Drug Administration found what it called "objectionable conditions" at a New Mexico peanut butter plant in 2010, two years before the current outbreak of salmonella poisoning linked to Trader Joe's peanut butter produced there.

    The FDA said Friday that a recent inspection found salmonella in the plant which produced Trader Joe's Valencia Creamy Peanut Butter and many other nut butters and nut products for several large national grocery chains. The Trader Joe's peanut butter is now linked to 35 salmonella illnesses in 19 states — most of them in children under the age of 10.

    Though the illnesses have only been linked to the Trader Joe's peanut butter, New Mexico-based Sunland Inc. has recalled everything made in the plant since March of 2010 — a total of 240 products. The company last month recalled 101 products that were manufactured in the plant this year.

  • Ask Fr. John: Exploring Orthodoxy

    Is Orthodoxy “religious” or “spiritual?”

    Part 2

    “We know that the law is spiritual.” Rom. 7:14
    What? Again, Orthodox have a completely different usage of the word “religion” than the modern understanding. “Religion” as a concept has been tainted in the West, due to major abuses and to teaching falsities as the “ancient faith.” These days spirituality tends to be about freedom to do what one wants with regards to “goodness” “virtue” and “higher power.” So-called “religion” is oversimplified into oppressive dogma, rules, and doing “stuff.” It has become a synonym for “rules” or “law.” Naturally many prefer the “spiritual” and reject so-called “religion.”
    In Paul’s statement above, we see that “religion,” is actually spiritual. We say that religion is actually good, but only when it is spiritual. Classically, “religion” is part of spirituality and spirituality is part of “religion.” Making them separate concepts is foreign in Eastern Christianity.

  • Infrastructure projects get a boost

    The Tribal Infrastructure Board, created in 2005 by the Tribal Infrastructure Act, recently awarded more than $13 million to 28 tribal infrastructure projects.
    With the signing of intergovernmental agreements, those projects can now commence.
    The Tribal Infrastructure Act, recognizing that many of New Mexico’s tribal communities lack basic infrastructure resulting in poor social, health and economic conditions in tribal communities, created the Tribal Infrastructure Project Fund.
    During the 2010 session, the State Legislature passed a law that annually allocates 5 percent of the Senior Severance Tax Bonding Capacity to the Fund.
    Of the total $13,207,965 awarded for Fiscal Year ’12, the Pueblo of Santa Clara received the largest award, more than $1.6 million, for wastewater collection system improvements.
    The 28 projects funded were split evenly between 14 planning and 14 design/construction projects. Of the 22 tribes, nations, and pueblos in New Mexico, the board approved awards to 16 tribal nations.
    The board evaluates and scores each project proposal that is submitted to ensure that critical need is established.
    This year’s round of funding, which is administered by the State of New Mexico Indian Affairs Department (“IAD”), increased significantly as the 2010 law took effect.

  • Lower temperatures expected this weekend

    Los Alamos County could be in for its first freeze this weekend.
    According to the National Weather Service in Albuquerque, a cold front is expected to hit Friday and the effects may last all weekend.
    The NWS forecast: The initial cold front pushed through much of the eastern plains today generating gusty northeast winds, some clouds, and noticeably cooler temperatures.
    “We now await a much stronger cold front later Friday into Saturday. Highs Saturday will struggle to reach the low/mid 40s across the northeast quarter, and many locations of North Central/North East and colder locales of central New Mexico will likely experience their first freeze of the season Saturday night.
    In addition, gusty winds are expected and there is a slight chance of precipitation.
    The cold front will sweep south and west and gusty east canyon winds will start after midnight Friday.
    On Saturday, there will be significantly cooler temperatures with gusts of 35 mph. Freezing temperatures can be expected in the north valleys.
    As the cold front rolls out Sunday, wind gusts will increase to above 40 mph. Temperatures will remain cool in the western part of the state but will rebound in the eastern part.
