  • American Eagle dials back on Santa Fe-Dallas flight schedule

    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — One of three daily flights to and from Santa Fe and Dallas/Fort Worth is being cut by regional airline American Eagle.

    Santa Fe airport manager Jim Montman calls the change a seasonal adjustment.

    The airline is cutting the early morning flight from Santa Fe to Dallas, and the late flight from Dallas to Santa Fe. Montman says that will make it harder for business travelers who rely on those flight times.

  • Eyesores mar White Rock

    A swell of disheveled homes peppering Rover Boulevard and seeping onto connecting streets has sparked multiple complaints to the Community Development Department (CDD).

  • Financing business a brave new world

    The primary way in which banks make money is through loans.  But in today’s economic environment, regulators are requiring banks to increase their reserves – the capital that backs loans — to support an increasing number of loans at risk of default.  As banks work hard to reduce their bad loans, many are making far fewer new loans and decreasing the limits on existing lines of credit.
