The RECA bill was passed with the provision that it was good for 20 years; ending in July 2022. Keep the deal. Let it end. We can't just keep extending these programs, which become giveaway programs. It takes money from other programs. Let it die.

The DA contributes to the problem by over charging; in this case 1st degree murder. 1st degree murder in a traffic altercation?? I don't think so....

He attempted a U-Turn and cut off some cars, not uncommon in Santa Fe. The escalation resulted when Martin got out of his vehicle and…

Some good news. They didn't shoot him, as the SF Sheriff's Deputies are prone to do; esp Deputy Patrick Ficke, who recently killed a Tesuque man in a domestic violence event.

The record shows a petty criminal so killing him would likely have been a bad idea, but then the Tesuque mur…

Lets give credit where it is due; to the Governor, who abandoned testing soon after taking office, as something awful put in place by Martinez. MLG was going to come up with a "better" scheme, which of course never happened. Then came Covid, which was used to complete the wreckage.

Perhaps they should have stayed with online classes this year? Why the rush for this chaos, other than politics?

Just exactly what ARE teachers worth?? Are good teachers worth MORE than mediocre teachers, or the same? Are exceptional teachers worth MORE than good teachers? Since MLG, and the teachers unions, got rid of the testing regime, without providing a promised alternative, the whole game is d…

Webber's only real strength, and his background, is in Public Relations; a spin doctor. That was his role at "Fast Company" where Taylor did the management. But perhaps that's what Santa Fe wants; preferring illusion over substance. A living movie set, and "tourist destination".

Another failure by the NM justice system; we have far too many. It seems that those struggling with their live, and showing up in domestic violence, and such, don't get help; instead they are labeled "felon" which makes their problems much worse. It seems much like the military prisons at…

I remember the days when the New Mexican, under Ray Rivera, actually did real reporting, on real issues. No more. Phil does "non reporting" like this piece. A Real Newspaper would be a beginning to bring the community together. We have too many "White Elephants" already in this town, like…

How about charging the Deputy with a felony; as the shooting seems utterly unjustified, by either the SF Sheriff's Use of Force policy, or the situation at hand. Sheriff Mendoza seems to have a full stable of these fools. We must elect a different Sheriff, as Mendoza is clearly incompeten…
