Gracias

Thank you so much for the essays from Santa Fe teen parents! What wonderful, insightful essays written by such young and precious girls/mothers. Thank you, Lauren Whitehurst, director of the Mother Tongue Project at Capital High School for the work you are doing with and the leadership you are promoting to these young parents.

News, Aug. 7: “Dashing for Documents”

Got a brand new bag

There have been times during my 43 years as a resident of Santa Fe that I have not bothered picking up the Santa Fe Reporter. That has not been the case for several years now, which likely coincides with Julie Ann Grimm's period as editor and publisher.

On Friday, I read with real interest your article on SFR's request for information regarding the procurement of professional services for the Santa Fe Regional Airport. Even as the city councilor most involved in airport matters and as chair of the Airport Advisory Board, your article was the first I knew of the difficulties surrounding what should have been a relatively straightforward transaction. I intend to look into the matter.

Letters, July 31: “What’s the plan?”

It’s gas, gas, gas

Don Rehorn argues that methane cannot be a greenhouse gas, due to its combustion products. Does he think methane disappears by spontaneous ignition in the air?

Also, natural gas released by drilling is composed of a mixture; hence, its general name. Typically composed of methane, it contains small amounts of other gases, such as ethane, propane and nitrogen.

Correction

A story about the re-opening of Revolution Bakery last week gave the wrong neighborhood. It’s in the Design Center, 418 Cerrillos Road. SFR regrets the error.
