    The discovery of the Americas has for centuries been credited to the Italian explorer Christopher Columbus, but ancient markings carved into rocks around the US could require history to be rewritten.

They have found pictograms etched into the rocks around the country that appear to belong of an ancient Chinese script. John Ruskamp, a retired chemist and amateur epigraph researcher from Illinois, discovered the unusual markings while walking in the Petroglyph National Monument in Albuquerque, He claims they indicate ancient people from...

There is no reason we shouldnt be an energy leader, she later told attendees at the eighth annual Domenici Public Policy Conference in Las Cruces.

    More than 300 abortion opponents held rallies Tuesday in New Mexico demanding the government investigate whether Planned Parenthood is illegally selling aborted fetal tissue, and that it defund the national organization. The protests, at the state Capitol in Santa Fe and at Planned Parenthood clinics in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, were a spinoff of the recent national furor over secretly recorded videos posted to YouTube, showing organization officials talking about providing fetal tissue and organs for research in exchange for payment. Anti-abortion groups have seized on the videos as evidence of what one rally speaker called the scandal of selling...

After more than a year of reviewing hundreds of cases handled by the Albuquerque police, the federal agency found that officers too frequently used deadly force on people "who posed a minimal threat" and used a higher level of force too often on those with mental illness.

    Last night, pro-lifers received some disappointing news when a ballot proposal that would have banned abortions after 20 weeks in Albuquerque was rejected by the voters by a 5545 margin. There are relatively few clinics that perform late-term abortions nationally, but one of them is located in Albuquerque. Since 20-week abortion bans have polled well nationally, local pro-life activists saw this municipal ballot proposal as a creative way to circumvent the New Mexico state legislature, which historically has been unreceptive to pro-life laws. Pro-lifers should not despair about Tuesdays loss, for a couple reasons. First, theres a substantial body of...

Initial results from 50,000 early and absentee ballots showed 56 percent of voters against the proposal, while 44 percent supported the ban on most abortions after 20 weeks. The totals from voters casting ballots on election day didnt change those percentages much and, with 28 of 50 precincts tallied, the vote remained 55-45 against the ban.

    Albuquerque is pulling a Texas. A coalition of pro-life activists has managed the improbable: Theyve gotten a ballot measure set for a vote on Tuesday that would ban abortions in the city after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Their efforts have drawn national attention as well as national money and, if successful, would break ground for the pro-life movement by making Albuquerque the first city in the nation with such a ban. Its not just about making history, though: According to Politico, the city has two of the few clinics in the country that perform late-term abortions, and the...
