Obviously the store owner wasn't serious when she said "felt like we were bombed". I think she realizes she was not a direct target....geez. Speaking of out of context, the term "hater" hardly applies to anyone in this case. I grew up outside of Tulie and everytime there was a sonic boom the pictures on the walls would shake, windows would shake, and recently a flowerpot on my mom's porch fell off it's stand and broke. It is entirely possible the sonic boom broke this window, and other items. If you look at the picture the glass seemed to have fallen out of the sill, it wasnt shattered, or broken otherwise. It's probably a very old sill, very old window, and years of sonic booms might have just shaken it loose one last time. I am not saying Holloman should stop the tests, it's just a part of life living close to a missle range. I don't think the storeowner is even saying that. And it's not like the booms are everyday occurrences. I am just saying it's entirely possible the boom casused this damage. (Dec 8, 2009 | post #20)
The only way his license can ALREADY be revoked at the time of the accident, is if he has a DWI pending, or he is already convicted of one, -or- if he owes an extreme ammount of child support. I'm guessing it's the first....so does he already have a prior DWI? At age 18, or as a juvie?? If so....wow. Just another addition to a state full of problems. if his license is suspended, that's a different story. He either skipped a traffic court date, or didn't pay a ticket. Please KOB follow up on this: is his license really revoked or suspended?? Where and when was his previous DWI? (Aug 25, 2009 | post #23)
I like the new turquoise! MUCH better than the balloons.....and I agree, the balloons never represented the whole state. I refused to get a balloon license, always asking for the traditional yellow. I voted to give people the option of yellow and turq. jenna, you aren't kidding...the Ohio DWI plates look exactly like NM's traditional plates! But that's not NM's fault I dont think we should have to change because ours was around before OH's. But I feel bad for any NM drivers going through Ohio who might get targeted! lol (Aug 11, 2009 | post #12)

I used to work at the courts in ABQ and this would happen alllll the time. It's not a new thing, I'd see it at least once or twice a month. The Greyhound Bus and/or Amtrack route from LA to Chicago was a really popular drug run. Lots of times it was girls like these, who were running the drugs for their b.f.'s back home (Jul 15, 2009 | post #8)
geez how sad....my condolences to the friends and families of these kids. A few months ago, 4 teenagers were killed by a female drunk driver in the city that I live in....she jumped a median on a busy street at 8:00pm. The kids were just stopped at a red light, while going out for pizza. Goes to show you NEVER know when this will happen and people are NEVER safe. You can't blame the parents.

The Rainbows seem pretty cool to me...I'd never heard of them until a few weeks ago. I saw a Dateline / 48 Hours / something-or-other special where the Rainbows helped law enforcement catch a child predator who was trying to hide out with them. They helped break the case wide open....... Just leave em alone. (Jun 22, 2009 | post #36)
that's b.s. I can't stand it when people come up with this generic response to anyone who takes the initiative to lead a productive life, and are actually proud of what they have accomplished. Nowhere in that post did this person say they lead a perfect life...quit putting words into their mouth, and instead try coming up with a decent response that requires a shred of thought, if you can even think of one. You dont have to be "perfect " to life a good life, or to raise your kids right, and you dont have to be a genius to figure out how to do it. good job cmb, keep doing what you're doing (Jun 19, 2009 | post #51)
Although I am so relieved part of the mystery has been solved....a huge part of me really wished the child had come from somewhere else. I really didn't want to beleive an ABQ or NM mother could do this to their own child. Things are just getting crazy around here. Anyway like I said, part of the mystery has been solved..I have a feeling she did not act alone, and would not be surprised if other arrests are made. I'm not trying to justify the low bond at ALL, but it might be so low because there's someone else involved, she might have known about her child being killed, and not exactly participated in it. Just throwing that out there for discussion, and in NO WAY sticking up for her. Regardless, her bond should be millions more than that anyway. (May 21, 2009 | post #64)
yeah youre right...it seems like there really are tons of companies out there, but actually there are 6 main ones (Toyota, Nissan, Honda, GM, Chrysler and Ford). Each of those have their own side brands (Acura, Infinity, Saturn, Pontiac, Chevy, etc) (May 15, 2009 | post #11)
I am not a hardcore Obama fan...but if anyone beleives it was solely his fault certainly hasn't stepped foot in Detroit or any other auto town in the past 3 decades. The auto industry has been in deep deep decline for many years...and they are to blame for it. Not a man who has been in office for less than 6 months. They put a band-aid on it for as long as they possibly could until it all fell apart. It was inevidable. And I agree with Oreo...the massive pay cuts should start at the top! Not the everyday people like you and me who are just trying to live their lives in this effed up economy. (May 15, 2009 | post #10)
The problems of The Big Three go back to the 1970's...years and years of mismanagement, corruption and greed finally caught up with them. They were making crappy cars when the Japanese were making fuel efficient sporty cars. Yes Politics and the Auto industry go hand in hand, but it's too simple and inaccurate to blame just one person. If they had done everything they've done in the past 6 months 30 or 20 years ago...I dont think they'd have this problem. I really think American Autos have stepped up their game with quality and safety, but it's waaaay too little, too late. I'm in Detroit now....and it's looking really, really bad around here.

Good point!! (May 6, 2009 | post #62)
So moving it a measley 500 feet will magically make all the noise go away? If anything, all it's going to do is free up 500 feet of additional parking space so more cars will park there! I agree with other posters...plant tons of tall trees, make concrete sound barriers, turn the speakers down or have the speakers pointed away from houses, work on that stuff before you completely tear it down. Besides, Isotopes and UNM arenas are RIGHT THERE....I would say those arenas are twice as loud as the BMX track. (May 6, 2009 | post #29)
I had to read that story three times, I thought I was going crazy. But sadly, I read it right.... Proposed MILLION$$$ of dollars to move it 500 feet? 500 feet???? what is the point of that??!?! Probably the most absurd use of govt. money I have ever heard of. (May 5, 2009 | post #2)
