Moving to Rio Rancho in 2010... questions

Damn, what part of Rio Rancho are you in? I don't see traffic in Rio Rancho any worse than it is in other places, and that means it sucks all over during certain times. I've never head to deal with the police, so I can't comment on that subject... I'm going to consider myself lucky. The water, is drinkable where I'm at but does have a large amount of minerals in it, so you get a lot of scale build-up. A water filtration system will fix that but those aren't cheap. Overall, still a good place to live, I've lived in worse.  (Aug 17, 2010 | post #7)

Man accused of letting 11-year-old drive

Are they sure the boys weren't drunk as well? Heck, by the time I was 11 I could drive pretty well... better than some "adults" that I see on the roads anyway.  (Apr 20, 2010 | post #1)

NM study finds many sober drivers go wrong way

I mentioned this in another thread: right on the entrance to an off-ramp, place big reflective arrows showing the direction of travel. If you turn on it going the wrong way, hopefully they will see the arrows pointing the wrong way and stop before they get down to the highway. That would only help if people pay attention to how they drive, so as Yar said, it wouldn't help the stupid ones much.  (Apr 19, 2010 | post #6)

If you illegally crossed over into another country, what ...

I say, let them in but change the way we are taxed, after all, isn't that what most have a problem with? Them getting benefits but not having to pay their "fair" share? For NM, drop state income tax, raise sales taxes (everyone has to buy stuff, even illegal immigrants), and get the funds that way. Something has to change, because its certainly NOT working now.  (Apr 19, 2010 | post #3)

Moving to Rio Rancho in 2010... questions

Don't forget, home prices are pretty good as well, for the most part, you will get more home for the same amount of money than Albuquerque. YMMV, but its what made me choose RR.  (Apr 19, 2010 | post #3)

Filibertoa s introduces Ariz. tastes to Albuquerque

I saw they had a big party on opening day, with live music and stuff. I agree, its nice to see businesses opening up around this area.  (Apr 19, 2010 | post #6)

Women with Tattoos; Beautiful or trashy?

A few are nice, a full body cover is interesting but depending on what kind of design, can be a big turn off as well. I'm always reminded of something like the Patryns from the The Death Gate Cycle novels. http://en.wikipedi a.org/wiki/The_Dea th_Gate_Cycle Most of the time when I see people who are covered with many tattoos, they are also accompanied by many piercings, and those definitely turn me off.  (Apr 13, 2010 | post #3)

What do you think of Gov. Richardson?

Any good he has done, and might still do, has been overshadowed by the accusations of corruption. I'm fairly certain we aren't hearing all of it, and won't while he is still in office. Even if he is proven to not have broken any actual laws, he's certainly done some pretty shady things; hiring of buddies, placing them in jobs that are exempt, living like a king... flying off all over the world. What also speaks volumes is that he isn't the only politician doing this, there are certainly others. Why do they keep getting votes?  (Apr 8, 2010 | post #60)

Baby's remains found in box in empty Tijeras lot (5:03 a.m.)

Abortion is legal, but I'll play devil's advocate and say, so is his right to speak out against it. Me, I'm not a woman, so it really <shouldn't> concern me, and where I do take offense is anti-abortionists killing the doctors that perform the abortions. As long as they don't do that, I have no problem with them voicing their opinions.  (Apr 7, 2010 | post #14)

Report: Wrong-way drivers in NM likely to be drunk (2:15 ...

There are a few times in bad weather, night-time, or other hard to see times that I've almost turned onto the wrong roads ( where a frontage type road is right after the on/off ramp from/to the highway ). I'd like to see a big white reflective arrow on the road near those type of intersections that would be able to be seen, even with bad visibility, that would give a driver a big hint that they are going the wrong way before they actually make it down to the highway proper.  (Apr 5, 2010 | post #11)

Review: Too Bright Window Tinting

This the place that has the barber shop in the front? If so, yeah, they did a great job and I got a hair cut as I waited. :)  (Apr 5, 2010 | post #2)

State bans red-light cameras on some roads

I'm not for the camera's but I honestly can't deny that, upon seeing some idiots continuously drive through the red light, it wouldn't bother me too much if they got caught. Seems like there is never a cop around when you need one.  (Apr 5, 2010 | post #116)

Review - Bike World in Albuquerque, New Mexico

I usually don't go to Bike World, as they are farther than I'd really like to go, but its good to hear that they would be a fine establishment to visit should the need arise.  (Apr 5, 2010 | post #2)

Somali Pirates

Those pirates have pulled off quite a few hijacks and have gotten away with it. I think it will take a few more decisive victories like this one to really encourage them to stop.  (Apr 5, 2010 | post #5)
