1) C. Damage at both abortion clinics was minimal according to Albuquerque Fire Department officials. The Molotov cocktail was found on the roof of the Planned Parenthood office at 701 San Mateo NE. A second Planned Parenthood at 3625 Central NE had some of its windows broken. The two incidents came on the heels of another attack on an Albuquerque abortion clinic near the 800 block of Encino NE three weeks ago, in which a fire destroyed the building. Sergio Baca, 22, and Chad Altman, 25, were arrested on Thursday, Dec. 27, in connection to the first incident.

2) A. Patrick Alonzo Chavez, 44, was arrested for disorderly conduct at a bar in Nob Hill after he refused to calm down when a police officer confronted him about his disruptive behavior, according to police. Chavez has been with the Albuquerque Fire Department for 20 years.

3) E. No Albuquerque school was given a Gold Star for being one of the top 100 high schools in the country, but La Cueva and Sandia were among 406 schools given Silver Stars, and Eldorado was one of 1,086 schools who received a Bronze Star.

4) B. In addition to saying he was called “chief, peyote and deer dancer,” Sgt. James Naranjo also alleges he was passed over for promotions because he's Native American. The lawsuit seeks $150,000 in damages. The department withheld comment on the incident.
