KSFR SILENT SUMMER FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN

WANT MORE OF YOUR FAVORITE PROGRAMS (AND LESS ON-AIR FUND-RAISING)? On-air fund drives are a great way to remind our listeners that we need your support to continue to deliver KSFR’s award-winning programs—programs that reflect the independent, thoughtful voices of our own unique northern New Mexico communities. But independence and excellence have their price by breaking into our programming every once in a while to ask for your financial support. Want to skip the summer on-air fund drive?...

KSFR's Jeremy Zeilik brings you local news at noon. 

Americans have used fireworks to commemorate Independence Day since July 4th, 1777, the first anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. Every city worth its salt has a fireworks display. But here in Northern New Mexico, the threat of wildfires makes it impossible to take the using fireworks for granted. KSFR’s Kate Powell has the information you need to stay safe if you plan to light your own fireworks this weekend. 

Some people in Santa Fe will be celebrating the 4th of July in a different way this year, by reading the famous Frederick Douglass speech delivered before a white audience in 1852. Reading organizer Sunshine Muse says the speech by the African American abolitionist and former slave called “What to the Slave is the 4th of July” is as relevant today as it ever was.

In this Independence Day edition of Equal Time, host Martha Burk reflects on Abigail Adams' entreaty to her Founding Father husband, John Adams: All men may be created equal, but don't forget the ladies!

According to our state’s economic development department, this year’s Special legislative session brought an unprecedented opportunity to bring new businesses to New Mexico. I spoke with Juan Torres with the State Economic Development Department about the LEDA program and why Santa Fe is still such a difficult place to run a business.

There’s a new community project in Taos that is aimed at bridging the generation gap while teaching old and new technologies. Melody Romancito has the story.

As part of a recently-reached settlement between the State of New Mexico and the Federal Department of Energy, the State will get 73-million dollars to compensate for the mistakes at the Los Alamos National Lab and the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant that produced an explosion that forced the WIPP site to close for as much as 5 years, at a cost of more than half a billion dollars.  Past of that money will go to a new plan for oversight of the Labs.  On HERE AND THERE, KSFR'S Dave Marash asked reporter Staci Matlock of The New Mexican about how that new oversight would work. 

A number of New Mexico representatives are in town this week, including US Senator Martin Heinrich. KSFR’s Zelie Pollon brings us this story.

This week on HERE and THERE

This week on HERE AND THERE: MONDAY, JUNE 29 Today on HERE AND THERE, It's called an "investigatory stop." It's when police pull over a driver not because he or she has broken a traffic law, but because they want to investigate further. It happens so disproportionately to minority drivers, Chuck Epp and his University of Kansas colleagues found, it feels and hurts and divides society like racial profiling. The story on HERE AND THERE, right after the 5 o'clock news. TUESDAY, June 30 Today on...
