When Kemal Ataturk, the founder of Modern Turkey created his secular state after World War I, he detached Turkey from both the Islamic and the Arab worlds.  As a result, Turkish journalist Cengis Aktar told KSFR's Dave Marash on HERE AND THERE, the Turkish bureaucracy today is largely ignorant of both, which he said has enabled President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to steer a dangerous sectarian course.

The New Mexico Department of Transportation recently completed the first-of-its-kind assessment of all state highways. 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. Governor Susana Martinez proposed drawing $500 million over five years from the annual infrastructure bond package to jumpstart highway repairs. But Senate Finance Committe chair John Arthur Smith and Senator Carroll Leavell have each proposed different solutions. KSFR's Tom Trowbridge has the story.
