Both of New Mexico's U.S. senators say they are unhappy that there were not enough votes to pass gun control legislation yesterday. Senators Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich were in the majority voting for a bill to expand background checks for gun buyers.  But the majority was not enough to get the 60 votes needed to overcome a Republican filibuster.

After local news, a talk with the NM Dept. of Health about teen suicide in our state with data from a new report.  Then, a conversation with soon-to-retire Santa Fe Airport manager Jim Montman.  And Actor Wes Studi talks to KSFR ahead of an upcoming honor.

Santa Fe's Railyard may get a cinema within the coming year and a half. The board of the organization that operates the Railyard property has approved a proposal by a movie theater company from Austin for a 16,000 square-foot theater complex devoted to arts and Spanish-language films.  The site would have 11 cinemas, nearly all of them with just 50 seats. A competing proposal would have required destroying El Museo de Cultural and the popular Santa Fe Clay. But the winning plan offered by the Violet Crown company would allow those entities to remain.

Its all clear on East Palace Avenue this morning after the police bomb squad removed a WWII-era grenade from a residence.  A woman living at the home had found it and called the authorities.  Celina Westervelt of the police department told KSFR they locked down the immediate neighborhood while they investigated. ***

April 15 First News: City parks drinking more water

Apr 15, 2013

Santa Fe has increased the number of city parks but the parks division is using more water and spending more money to pay for it.  The New Mexican reports that city hall pays the same rate for water as homeowners do. But they are beginning to talk about giving the parks division a break in what they pay.  The division is using 35 percent more water at present and paying 48 percent more in water bills.
