Governor Suzanna Martinez recently wrote a letter  obtained by the Santa Fe New Mexican to Energy Secretary Moniz expressing her support for another underground storage facility -- but this time for the quote unquote interim storage of highly radioactive nuclear waste. The letter - and proposed disposal site -came as a surprise to many considering there has been little to no discussion or public input. Don Hancock of the Southwest Information and research center called the plan a very bad and untenable idea. KSFR's Zelie Pollon has the story. Listen Here.

Heart and Soul Animal Sanctuary in Glorieta is one of those organizations advocating loudly on behalf of our animal friends. KSFR's Zelie Pollon reports.

Nepal’s Prime Minister says the death toll from Nepal's devastating earthquake could reach 10-thousand. The seven-point-eight magnitude quake destroyed huge sections of Kathmandu, including an eight story ancient temple, triggered an avalanche on Mount Everest that killed more than a dozen climbers while trapping others, and injuring thousands more. According to a UN coordinator in Nepal, eight-million people in 39 districts have been affected, of which over two million people live in the 11 severely affected districts. Rescue efforts have intensified in Nepal as a stream of foreign aid reaches the capital, including at least one aid organization from here in Santa Fe.

Senator Tom Udall was first elected to the House in 1998 and during his tenure has long been considered an environmental champion. Yet recently he has been garnering headlines and not a small amount of criticism for his role as the chief Senate negotiator for Democrats on legislation that would fundamentally change the way the federal government regulates the chemical industry. Critics of the Bill being called the Frank R Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, say Udall is getting too cozy with the chemical industry and advocating for legislation some claim was written by chemical lobbyists. Senator Udall joins us today live on KSFR to speak about his role crafting a powerful piece of legislation that will regulate the safety of more than 80,000 chemicals.

The terrorist attack at the Bardo Museum in Tunis just last month, killed 21 tourists and one Tunisian.  The assault was random, the 3 gunmen just sprayed with bullets, the first busload of tourists to arrive in front of them.  But the target was specific, tourism, right at the heart of the Tunisian economy.  The government's response has been vigorous, Tunis-based journalist Eric Reidy told KSFR's Dave Marash on HERE AND THERE, to make tourists feel the country is safe to visit.  But, Reidy said, some critics think the security crackdown has gone too far.

A respected Mennonite Minister for a dozen years in Iowa, Max Villatoro, had crossed the US border illegally, gotten himself a fake ID and been pulled over for driving under the influence.  The judge who heard his case, hearing about the life he'd been leading, gave him a suspended sentence.  But that left him with a criminal record. And just last month, he was arrested by Immigration agents and summarily deported to Honduras, despite the protests of his community, his fellow ministers and his family which includes four children aged seven to 15 who are U-S citizens. This kind of heartless justice is all too typical, Human Rights Watch researcher Grace Meng told KSFR's Dave Marash on HERE AND THERE, of the way immigrants are being treated following last summer's surge of women and children border-crossers from Central America.

The often-quoted figure that women earn 74 cents to a man’s dollar is even lower for Hispanic women, African Americans and other minorities around the country and here in New Mexico. In fact it goes against an Equal Pay law implemented in New Mexico in 2013.

When Saudi Arabia asked for help in forming a regional military force to fight a Houthi Shi'ite insurgency in Yemen, they got a lot of positive responses.  When the United States sent out feelers about a regional army to fight the Islamic State, the response was more restrained.  Roy Gutman, the Pulitzer Prize winning mideast correspondent for the McClatchy newspapers told KSFR's Dave Marash on HERE AND THERE, he recently toured much of the region to ask why.

Six years ago, a woman out walking with her dog on the West Mesa of Albuquerque discovered what turned out to be one of the largest crime scenes in American history: a mass grave containing the bodies of 11 murdered young women.  Most of the dead women had been missing for years before their bodies were found.  Not much progress was made in the investigation, until recently, when the Albuquerque Police Department announced they had two men under investigation for the murders. One, Lorenzo Montoya, was long dead; the other, Joseph Blea, is in jail.  Investigative reporter Diana Washington Valdez of the El Paso Times, who is still working this story, put the announcement in context for KSFR's Dave Marash on HERE AND THERE.

When Indiana Republican Governor Mike Pence last week signed into law the Religious Freedom Restoration Act -- which effectively allows businesses to discriminate against the lesbian Gay bisexual transgender communities -- he clearly didn't anticipate the response. Indiana has since argued that the law is very similar to many other states, including New Mexico. Which is not true. We have with us today Steven Robert Allen, Director of Public Policy for the New Mexico American Civil Liberties Union to tell us more about New Mexico's Law and how it differs from what is being discussed in Indiana.
