Floods, Frauds and Furies
A view from the Sandias of the heavy rain that bombarded the city Sunday, Aug. 13, which flooded several Downtown neighborhoods.
The Aug. 21 Council meeting saw a full chamber of folks revved up and ready to rumble over workforce housing and land restrictions.
Representatives from the Southwest Organizing Project and the Department of Health complained about the city jerking their permit to stage a break-dancing, graffiti-painting, band-blasting event promoting men's health on Civic Plaza on Saturday, Aug. 26, from 12 noon to 6 p.m.

CORRECTION--In the Aug. 17-23 “Council Watch,” we mistakening wrote that that at the Aug. 7 Council meeting, “The police department unloaded old German Shepherds at bargain basement rates.” In truth, Animal Services officers presented dogs from the animal shelter that were up for adoption, as they do at every Council meeting. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
