It seems appropriate on the first days of Indian Market to focus this week's history lesson the systems of commerce that wove across the continent before and after European contact.
Upon settling New Mexico, the Spaniards became participants in the established trade network of the Native people. They introduced a dazzling array of goods, besides new crops and livestock of all kinds.

Gov. Susana Martinez says she intends to seek reinstatement of the death penalty during January's legislative session. The state banned the death penalty in 2009. We'll be updating this breaking story, where you can also take a poll on the issue.
In comments released by her office, Martinez hints that she was motivated to pursue the policy following the shooting death of a Hatch police officer and a Navajo girl kidnapped and killed earlier this year.

Española shoppers will need to find another spot for groceries while the store undergoes repairs and renovations. But seniors and others who get their medication at the store will be able to do so, even as the work is underway.

With so many terrible things happening recently, we can all use a laugh—a great big belly laugh. In this week's Trail Dust column, Marc Simmons looks at humor among the Native and cowboy communities of historic New Mexico.
There long existed a popular myth that Native people have no sense of humor. They have been thought by outsiders to be stolid, always serious and rarely given to outbursts of laughter.

Celebrity culture goes back a long way in New Mexico. The hunt is on for Billy the Kid's suspenders, which might have once belonged to Sheriff Pat Garrett, yup the same sheriff who'd eventually take down the Kid.
The search is on for a pair of suspenders some experts believe the Kid, also known as William H. Bonney, was wearing in 1878 when he allegedly posed on a rock in New Mexico.

Three decades later, Carlos Gonzales and Roberta Montoya’s mother are still seeking answers about their daughters’ deaths. They are among several parents of cold case victims who forged a bond in the late 1980s as they pushed to keep the attention of law enforcement and the public on their missing loved ones.
A dozen women were killed or disappeared in Santa Fe between 1978 and 1989. Most of the cases remain open. Though the violence of that era is receding, some still feel its pain.

The entry of Upper Crust Pizza into the Eldorado market sets up an interesting battle for the hearts and taste buds of residents between itself and Pizza Centro, which operates a shop just a few hundred yards away.
In Eldorado, there seems to be agreement on something: Upper Crust Pizza.

That's a bear up there—riding atop a garbage truck near Los Alamos. Share this post with your friends.
The truck traveling bear rode at least 5 miles on the vehicle before it was able to make its escape up a tree.

Goodbye, Hastings. You'll be missed.
The large green, metal “rental return” bin on the sidewalk outside the Hastings store on North Guadalupe Street in Santa Fe is a relic, but also a harbinger of certain obsolescence.
