Last Friday afternoon in Santa Fe, First Judicial District Court judge Sarah Singleton ruled on a Confidentiality and Protective Order — a CPO for short — that  the Archdiocese of Santa Fe was seeking to govern discovery proceedings in a lawsuit brought against it by seven John Doe plaintiffs last December. The suit by the plaintiffs names the Archdiocese and Our Lady of Sorrows church in Las Vegas. The suit alleges that Monsignor Hubert Lomme who was a priest at Our Lady of Sorrows sexually abused the seven pre-teen boys from 1959 to 1964.

Finally today, Rita Daniels takes to the open road — or maybe it’s called the crowded mountains —  near Taos.


It’s Science Monday and today we rerun a piece I produced last year for Women’s Focus, with my guest -- Stanford University neurobiologist Jennifer Raymond -- on the subject of Unconscious Bias and how it affects the distribution of women working professionally in the sciences.

Ellen Berkovitch got Senator Martin Heinrich's (D-NM) take on the President's intent to withdraw from the Paris Accord.

 The Senator, who sits on the Select Committee on Intelligence, also discussed the anticipated testimony of former FBI Director James Comey concerning the ongoing probe into Russian activity during the 2016 election. 

Comey will testify tomorrow beginning at 8 am MDT; KSFR will air the hearing live during the 8 o'clock hour.

Joel Aalberts, executive director for the Lensic Performing Arts Center, stopped by the studio to tell about their just-announced 2017-18 season, which kicks off August 26 with Ricky Skaggs.


2017 Grammy-winning jazz vocalist Gregory Porter will headline at the Lensic this Saturday, June 10, at 7:30 pm.

Hannah Colton interviewed Jacquette Timmons of Sterling Investment Management, who will be hosted this weekend by the Women's International Study Center for a talk on how women can examine and improve their money management choices and habits.

Timmons's talk will be presented as part of WISC's 2nd annual "Women & Money" symposium.

Hannah Colton spoke with Laura Paskus of the New Mexico Political Report, who's done a great deal of footwork in the flame-scarred landscapes of the Jemez. She talked fire safety, conservation, and the ecological picture in years to come.

Science Monday today features a topic dealing in the germophobe culture we live in and that has given our consumer choices ever more injurious products — measured by their effects on their environment. Last Tuesday, though, the NRDC won a legal challenge to an anti-microbial pesticide’s having been fast tracked through an EPA approval process. I spoke to Jennifer Sass late last week.


Today, June 5th, is the 50th anniversary of the Tierra Amarilla Courthouse Raid. This date remains forever linked with the land grant movement in northern New Mexico and with the charismatic activist, revolutionary, and evangelist for the restoration of land rights to Chicano peoples of Northern New Mexico: Reies Lopez Tijerina.
