ABQ schools retooling policy

ALBUQUERQUE — Albuquerque’s public school district is retooling its social media policy.
The effort comes on the heels of a recent flap involving Superintendent Winston Brooks but  reports that the district says the overhaul has been in the making for a long time.
Brooks recently apologized for Twitter posts that included comparing the state education secretary to farm animals.
The district’s current social media policy posted online is brief, saying employees should be mindful of their posts even if they’re not working and off district property.

Shelter gets new animal hospital

SANTA FE — The Santa Fe Animal Shelter has a new veterinary hospital.
The Clare Eddy Thaw Animal Hospital serves both the shelter and the public and was developed with a donation from the Eugene Thaw and the Brown foundations.
Shelter director Mary Martin says the shelter’s board always envisioned an animal hospital for the campus when the shelter moved to its new facilities on Caja del Rio Road in 2005.
