    Forest travel plan upheld

    Conservation groups say a federal court has upheld a travel management plan for the Santa Fe National Forest that limits access for recreational use.
    The U.S. District Court in Albuquerque ruled Friday that a statewide off-highway vehicle user group that sued the forest over the plan did not have a persuasive enough argument.
    The New Mexico Off Highway Vehicle Alliance filed its lawsuit in 2012 after a forest supervisor signed off on the plan.

  • We need to do better

    The Annie E. Casey Foundation released its annual child well-being report last week.

    The good news: New Mexico no longer ranks dead last in child well-being. The bad news: We’re now 49th in this year’s Kids Count Data Book, an annual national report that grades states on education, health care and poverty.
    While no longer being ranked last is definitely a step forward, ranking second worst among states in child well-being is certainly nothing to celebrate.
