  • Nuestra Historia: Mayor Junio Lopez and his ‘All American City’

    In 1958, 33-year-old Republican Junio Lopez was elected mayor of West Las Vegas, following 20 years of Democratic control in Old Town, in an era when municipal elections were vigorously partisan.

    Since it became a municipality in 1903, the Town of Las Vegas was governed by a mayor and four trustees, and elected along with Lopez were all Republican trustees, including Ernest (Ernie) Olivas, Johnny Korte and Cleofes (Coke) Romero, Jr. Led by Lopez, the group would undertake the most ambitious transformation of Old Town since it was founded in 1835.

  • Judge upholds license ruling

    The Associated Press

    LOS ALAMOS — A northern New Mexico county became the eighth in the state on Wednesday to clear the way for same-sex couples to be married.

    The Los Alamos County clerk’s office issued a marriage license to a lesbian couple shortly after a state district judge upheld a decision requiring that to happen.

    Janet Newton and Maria Thibodeau were denied a license last week and filed a lawsuit that led to a ruling by District Court Judge Sheri Raphaelson that same-sex couples are entitled to be married in New Mexico.
