Letter America Dear Doctor Guy, My friend recently stopped taking my calls because I’m dating her ex-boyfriend, but they broke up like over two years ago. I don’t know what to do.—Helpless Hottie ... More
SFR obtained these emails from Michael Corwin, formerly a researcher for Gov. Bill Richardson. Corwin runs Independent Source PAC, a union-backed political action committee opposed to Martinez. Previous emails leaked by Corwin to media outlets created an uproar about administration officials’ use of private email accounts to conduct state business, which may enable them to circumvent state records laws that allow the public to inspect emails on official government accounts. Unlike the previous leaks, this one is much more extensive and almost exclusively comprises emails sent by Rogers to administration officials.Rogers declined to comment for the story beyond impugning the journalistic ethics of the reporters and even suggesting they were breaking federal and state law.
Scott Darnell, the governor’s spokesman, referred SFR to the “multi-paragraph” statement Martinez issued on June 18 directing all state employees to use public email addresses when conducting state business. “This directive goes beyond what has been required or practiced in the past in New Mexico,” the statement reads.
The technical problems with their attempt have already been discussed widely, so I’ll mention them only quickly here: The Confederate flag probably never flew over New Mexico; if any flag of the Confederacy ever did, as local historian (and occasional NMPolitics.net contributor) Christopher Schurtz pointed out, it was probably the Stars and Bars.
Second, the Tea Party failed to include Spanish or Mexican flags on its float. Both have had a much greater and more lasting impact in New Mexico than the Stars and Bars. Any attempt to recognize this state’s history that fails to include those aspects falls far short.
Members of the Santa Fe County Commission and the Santa Fe City Council plan a joint meeting Thursday to review annexation strategy.
The local governments have fallen behind on a 2008 plan for the city to annex about 10,000 acres in three phases over a five-year period, after which no other changes to the city limits would occur for 20 years.
Miller, the executive director of research, assessment, data and accountability for Rio Rancho Public Schools, told school board members at their meeting Monday evening that she had a “brief” report on the new school grades, released last week by the state Public Education Department.I'd hate to see what a detailed presentation would have looked like.
That “brief” report lasted 54 minutes and, when she was finished, she still had board members confused. That’s only fair because it seems educators, administrators and parents are scratching their heads, wondering what it all means, namely due to the complex scoring system.
