c. Give Lobo Louie dolls to those who make the Dean's List
d. Raise admission standards
1) A. While the New Mexico BioPark Society, a nonprofit organization, will foot the bill to fly the little devils from Australia to Albuquerque (at a cost of between $10,000 and $20,000 according to Tom Silva, deputy director of the BioPark), the Tasmanian devils themselves cost nothing. Their habitat, however, cost the city $300,000 to build.
2) C. The day after taking his name off the Democratic ballot for president, Gov. Richardson imposed a six-month moratorium on oil and natural gas drilling in the Galisteo Basin north of Santa Fe. Gov. Richardson is also backing a universal health care bill in this Legislative Session, but the move didn't garner headlines until a few days later.
3) D. Robert Glasser and Joey Acosta, both 22, were treated for non life-threatening gunshot wounds after using a loaded .357-caliber Magnum as a pattern for a tattoo. One bullet injured both men.
4) D. The UNM regents propose to increase the average grade point average for admission from 2.25 to 2.5 in the fall of 2009, then to 2.75 in the fall of 2010. Other topics in the proposal include increasing the number of college prep classes required, raising scholarship standards and requiring freshmen to live on campus.
