The announcement by New Mexico State Auditor Tim Keller’s office that he will undertake a special audit of Santa Fe’s 2008 Parks Bond project comes as Mayor Javier Gonzales’s administration posts its own report on the city’s website, detailing how some of the money was spent. 

 

As KSFR’s Deborah Martinez reports, the 15-page summary looked at how park improvements were planned and generally paid for during the first two years at dozens of the city’s parks.

New Mexico has been a leader in offering interpreting services to individuals with limited English proficiency and the deaf and hard of hearing in courtrooms to ensure equal access to justice. Also, the state is the only one with a constitutional right for citizens to serve on juries regardless of their ability to speak or read English. This status helped attract the conference of the Council of Language Access Coordinators to Santa Fe last week. Paula Couselo, senior statewide program manager of the New Mexico Center for Language Access, was among the presenters.

You may know Jason Silverman as Cinematheque director at the CCA in Santa Fe. But he's also a filmmaker: he co-wrote, directed and produced a new documentary, SEMBENE! (sem-BEN), about the life and career of Ousmane Sembene (Ooosman-sem-ben), one of the most significant figures in Senegalese cinema and literature. 

 

The film, a collaboration with Sembene biographer Samba Gadjigo (gad-JEE-go), was named "One of the top 18 films of Sundance" in 2014 and recently made its international premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. KSFR's Kate Powell spoke with Jason and brings us this story. 

 

Jason Silverman, co-creator of Sembene! and Cinematheque director at the CCA. Tomorrow we'll hear Jason talk about the Santa Fe cinema community CCA helped create, as well as the future of film here in Santa Fe and around the world.
