ANSWERS

1) B. Javier Perea, 24, has been appointed mayor of the embattled colonia in Doña Ana County. Perea graduated business school at New Mexico State University in 2010. Councilor Daniel Salinas was elected to the post but wound up in jail on felony extortion charges.

2) A. The just-discovered form of amphipod is translucent and about half an inch long. The species could be millions of years old. Biologists found the creatures while surveying the area before it’s mined for potash. The shrimp were observed 80 feet from the surface of a subterranean pool. Surface water reaches the cave through crevices or is replenished from a shallow aquifer.

3) D. The Albuquerque Police Department says a man with an expensive drug habit gathered more than 12 homeless people to help him steal from home improvement stories. According to APD, they would take things from the stores and then return them using receipts found in parking lots. The man is facing charges for more than 175 thefts.

4) C. He's only 2-years-old, but Meow tips the scales at nearly 40 pounds. Cats usually weigh around 10 pounds. The Santa Fe Animal Shelter placed the obese feline with a foster family and put him on a diet. The fattest cat ever on record was just more than 46 pounds.
