The Daily Word in our high-tech legacy, Darren White and a dry river

By

Our city's high-tech legacy should be leveraged toward tourism and convention growth, say experts in the travel and airline industry.

Lockheed Martin has enlisted New Mexico Tech as a partner in its bid to assume management of Sandia National Laboratories.

DOJ Federal Monitor James Ginger will release his third report on APD reform efforts today.

Former Bernalillo County Sheriff and New Mexico Secretary of Public Safety Darren White says, "This year I can’t back the GOP," and has consequently endorsed his former boss, Gary Johnson, for POTUS.

High temperatures, sparse rainfall and the subsequent need for more water by farmers along the middle Rio Grande have resulted in a 17 mile section of the river running dry.

Trout fishing along the Pecos River can be enhanced by using simulators, bead-head prince nymphs or worms; meanwhile try angling at Isleta Lakes in the early morning while using garlic chicken liver or shrimp as bait.

Meanwhile, here's some local hip-hop about our fabulous Duke City!

Sandia Labs Mixed Waste Landfill

The EPA says the Sandia Labs Mixed Waste Landfill isn’t a threat, but a 2011 report by Citizen Action says otherwise. The mixed-waste landfill lies directly above the main source of water for 600,000 Albuquerque residents. From 1959 to 1988 the landfill was used for disposal of low-level radioactive materials. Contaminants include nickel, cadmium, nitrate and chromium, all of which can cause nasty health problems with overexposure. What’s more, Mesa del Sol—a “green” community development touting that its “respect for the environment result[s] in a healthier, simpler, more sustainable way to live”—just broke ground adjacent to the site.
