  • Mayor wants to move up trick-or-treating

    Because Halloween is falling on a Sunday this year, Mayor Alfonso Ortiz is encouraging a different schedule for trick-or-treating.


    On the request of Old Town merchants, the mayor is declaring Friday afternoon for trick-or-treating along Bridge Street and around Plaza Park.

  • Buying our votes, 2010

    The governor’s race is the most obvious case in point. Tune in to local radio or Albuquerque television for very long and you’re sure to get an ample dose of creative negativity and bold-faced hypocrisy.
