    New Mexico has a wealth of energy resources. And now it has a comprehensive plan to help guide development of those riches to grow the state’s economy. Last week at the 2015 Southeastern New Mexico Mayor’s Energy Summit in Carlsbad, Gov. Susana Martinez laid out a broad “all of the above” energy policy. “There is no reason we shouldn’t be an energy leader,” she later told attendees at the eighth annual Domenici Public Policy Conference in Las Cruces. Her plan embraces a wide range of energy sources, ranging from oil and gas to solar, wind and up-and-coming technologies, such as...

    CARLSBAD, Calif. - North America’s largest seawater desalination plant is ahead of schedule. Construction on the $1 billion Carlsbad Desalination Plant is completed. Inspectors are now putting the plant through its paces to make sure it works. “This has been a long time coming,” said Poseidon Water spokeswoman Jessica Jones. The idea for the plant is almost 20 years old. As of Wednesday, the plant was desalinating 50-million gallons of water a day into clean drinking water. The water will be dumped back into the ocean until the plant passes inspection. Poseidon Water built the plant and reached an agreement...

Besides destroying homes, the blaze had also severely damaged an 18-unit condominium complex and two businesses. (City officials initially said it was eight condo units.) SNIP County Supervisor Bill Horn, whose district includes much of North County, speculated that arson had to be...

However, when they got to the vehicle they discovered that somebody had stolen wheels, tires and the battery from the wrecked...

    SANTA FE -- State Rep. Cathrynn Brown, reversing herself based on her constituents' wishes, said Wednesday she will introduce a bill requiring identification to vote. Brown, R-Carlsbad, had said only two weeks ago that she would not offer a voter ID bill this session because it had no chance to pass. "I changed my mind after hearing from my constituents," she said in an interview. "The prevailing view is that election integrity is too important not to do anything."

    CARLSBAD — The Carlsbad City Council voted unanimously yesterday to cover the municipal golf course's $1.6 million deficit for 2009, saying it was too early to change the financial strategy for the year-old course. Expenses for the course, The Crossings at Carlsbad, are expected to be $8 million versus $6.4 million in revenues. The budget anticipates a drop in course play revenue to $3.2 million from $3.4 million because of the declining economy. The city's finance director, Lisa Irvine, said that the course's $2.5 million in food and beverage revenues for 2009 will be higher than the $2.3 million earned...

    Property rights at issue CARLSBAD – A property-rights group has sued the city, claiming it requires property owners to give up their right to vote on forming an assessment district in return for obtaining a permit to improve their property and waive development fees. However, the city attorney said the lawsuit misses the point that development is a privilege and that the city has a right to place conditions on it. The lawsuit, filed Monday in San Diego federal court by the Pacific Legal Foundation on behalf of Craig and Robin Griswold, focuses on a city ordinance that requires owners...

    A jump into a swimming pool in 2003 changed Travis Robinson's life forever. Somewhere between a belly flop and a tuck, Robinson, then 17, hit the pool in such a way that he injured his spinal cord. He now is paralyzed from the neck down. But in January, he hopes another moment will change his life: surgery. Robinson will fly to Portugal to get a breakthrough surgery at the Hospital Egas Moniz. In the procedure, the scar tissue that surrounds his spinal cord will be removed. Doctors will take tissue that contains stem cells from his sinuses and implant it...

    DEL MAR – Former state Assemblyman Howard Kaloogian announced his formal entry yesterday into the race to replace Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham in the 50th Congressional District. Kaloogian, a 45-year-old San Marcos attorney, said his leadership skills will stand out from the crowded field of Republicans expected to vie for the open seat in the heavily Republican district. "Everyone in the race will be against illegal immigration; everyone will talk about excess spending," Kaloogian said. "The key is who is going to get something done about it. Do you want someone who is get-along go-along, or someone who will get...

    Almost any discussion of immigration elicits deeply felt emotions. Still, most Americans seem to feel that immigrants will continue to play an important role in our country’s growth and that America should continue to be a beacon to the disadvantaged and oppressed peoples of the world seeking a better life. That there are many more of these than the United States can possibly accommodate does not seem to deter most Americans in favoring a liberal immigration policy. Ours certainly fits that description. For one thing, young, working immigrants replenish our aging workforce and provide additional payroll taxes to help keep...
