First News: Some ABQ businesses are seeking to phase in over time the Duke City's new minimum wage law.(listen)
(2012-12-11)
(KSFR) - Some Albuquerque businesses are developing a plan to phase in that city's new minimum wage. The Albuquerque Journal says the New Mexico Restaurant Association wants city council to amend the wage increase approved by voters so that it's implemented over two years at 50 cents each. Voters in November approved a one-dollar increase in the minimum wage, raising it to $8.50 an hour. They say the phase-in would be better than trying to go to court to overturn the vote.

Two of Santa Fe's five school board members say they don't intend to run for office again when voters go to the polls in February. Frank Montano and Barbara Gudwin say they've served enough time in public service -- at least for a while. Both Montano and Gudwin cast votes against firing school superintendent Bobbie Gutierrez last winter.

We've learned the name of the person killed in that weather-related traffic fatality early Sunday evening along I-25 south of Santa Fe. 54-year-old Dorothy Mullins, a Kearney Elementary school teacher, lost control of her vehicle near the La Cienega exit. She hit a barrier and was hit by a truck when her car rolled back into traffic. Mullins was pronounced dead at the scene.

A Monday water main break at Airport Road & South Meadows that will be repaired today has forced the cancellation of classes for 3rd through 5th graders at Sweeney Elementary. Kindergarten through 2nd grade, however, will be bussed to Kaune elementary as is usual.

The Santa Fe Board of County Commissioners meets this afternoon and will be looking at that Healthy food Zone proposal for the Airport Road District. The Santa Fe Planning Commission last week unanimously gave its stamp of approval to the measure that imposes regulations on alcohol sales and bans new restaurant drive-throughs. The ordinance also establishes architectural and zoning guidelines.

Ski Santa Fe says the 16 inches of snow they received on Sunday will allow them to open several runs for the season this Saturday. Before the storm, 7 inches of machine-made snow graced the slopes, now with a 23 inch base.

Weather for Santa Fe - sunny and very cold again today with highs only in the low 30s. Lows tonight in the upper teens. Tomorrow through Friday, temperatures climb back into the mid 40s. There's a 40% chance for more snow Friday into Saturday as another storm moves across New Mexico.
