A stunning resume, the assistant editor of some rag from the thriving metropolis of Espaņola who's readership is 100 at most, since the other 200 people there no habla engless!

Good Lord. The four previous comments really worry me. How dumb IS our citizenry?

Bob Johnson was irreplaceable, but let's hope this young woman will succeed in continuing his mission with strength. I believe he's watching from above to help her.

Lord knows, responders 1-4 won't be.

Everyone, the Foundation for Open Government is very important. Please help them with donations and report problems with transparency in government to them.

I don't think I'd much like living there, either. But you would be surprised how many, many people read the Rio Grande Sun. And have it mailed to them in Albuquerque. The paper should not be judged by the behavior of some of the people who live in Espanola.

Even City Transit Director Greg Payne wrote a nasty little neocon column for them, once upon a time.

If you're friends with the scumbag of Greg Payne. Then you to must be a scumbag. Everyone knows that Payne is nothing but a liar and a drunk. Just look at his record.

Glad to hear you support just part of my negative opinion of Payne. I think his behavior ranges from mean to evil. I am not his friend at all.

Unfortunately though, some mostly well meaning and mostly conservative voters on the east side of the city seem to like him and consider him intelligent.I think they are just not very well informed. And as a City councilor, he pandered to them. Some of his supporters seem like racists, too, as I think he is.

I just think these racists who hate Espanola and therefore think the paper is a bad paper should know he did contribute a column to that paper years ago.

My reason for not wanting to live there is not about it being predominantly Hispanic, which I think is where the critics were leading. There is a lot of crime there and no public transportation, at least last time I looked, and it is too far from a city about the size of Albuquerque.

One good thing about maybe having a summer place in Espanola: it's near the Santa Fe Opera ! And not as pricey as Santa Fe!

The Rio Grande Sun's police blotter is priceless. It actually has made national news before for the uniqueness of the crimes committed and the manner in which they're reported.

Surprised the paper survived the Emilio Naranjo years....

Wasn't it just late last year that he died? Is that the end of Patron politics up there?
