THUMBS DOWN! STILL BURNING ... Last week in this space we decried the wildfires burning in Arizona, Colorado and here in New Mexico, then, the next day, another one broke out even closer to home. The Pacheco Canyon fire just north of Santa Fe — and not too many miles west of Las Vegas — spread quickly, billowing smoke across the Santa Fe National Forest. By Monday morning, you could smell it in the Las Vegas air.
Now, Santa Fe and Raton are both having to worry over their water supplies, as wildfires threaten the watersheds they depend on.
