Feb. 11 - Adrien Lawyer on Gender-Neutral Bathrooms

He told Santa Feans that the proposal was a response to the needs of the local transgender community. The announcement sparked some confusion among Santa Feans.

He’ll help us pick the best tax preparers.

Feb. 10 - Journalist Gopal Ratnam on Ukraine in American News

Even as the situation there went from bad to worse, the subject of Ukraine had seemingly slipped out of America's consciousness.  Until last week.  Last week, Foreign Policy Magazine correspondent Gopal Ratnam told KSFR's Dave Marash on HERE AND THERE, Ukraine was back on the front page and at the top of many TV newscasts.  This was, he says, the result of a very well-executed policy campaign.

The results show New Mexico roadways are in significantly worse shape than previously thought, with only 70 percent in good or fair condition. Officials say this is a reflection of the state road fund taking a double hit in recent years from the slow economy as well as fewer federal funds. During the current legislative session, there appears to be consensus on the need, but disagreement on how to pay for the solution.
