a. Selling junk food in vending machines

b. Allowing students to form bible clubs after school

4) The Bernalillo County Clerk's Office is being flooded with how many voter registration forms a day?

a. 3,200

b. 1,500

c. 750

d. 500


1) D. A New Mexico-based think tank recommends APS stop building big schools. Think New Mexico issued a report that says large schools make students feel alienated, which could lead to higher dropout rates. Think New Mexico suggests the state only fund new schools with capacities of 225 students per grade in high school, 120 students per grade in middle school and 60 students per grade in elementary school.

2) C. A lawsuit involving a man who was arrested after he used the word "bitch" was settled. The Las Cruces man was arrested in 2004 and charged with disorderly conduct after he used the swear word when a woman took his parking space at Target. The City of Las Cruces agreed to pay the man $255,000, while admitting no fault in the incident.

3) D. The Library, Sauce Liquid Lounge and Graham Central Station could all have their liquor licenses taken away. The "three strikes" liquor law says bars that have been cited more than three times within a year for breaking alcohol laws can have their licenses revoked. The bars each have more than three citations. The state Regulation and Licensing Department will decide in November what penalties, if any, to levy against the bars.

4) B. Bernalillo County Clerk Maggie Toulouse Oliver estimates her office is taking in about 1,500 voter registration cards a day. As of Sept. 10, about 1.1 million people were registered to vote in New Mexico. That's already more than the total number of registered voters in the state during the 2004 presidential election.
