It didn’t take long for the opportunists to come out. With the ink of Gov. Bill Ritter’s signature barely dry on a bill forbidding the state to sell land to the Army to expand the Piñon Cañon training site, U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison made it known last week that Texas and Fort Bliss would… Continue Reading State won the battle over Piñon Cañon, but will El Paso County lose the war?

President Barack Obama’s pick for the Supreme Court, appeals court Judge Sonia Sotomayor, is eminently well qualified for the job – as, indeed, were John Roberts and Samuel Alito, chosen to serve on the court by former President George W.

Earlier this week, the Business Journal published a comprehensive account online about the financial… Continue Reading Time to save USOC deal is now

Like spring crocuses, political signs are sprouting up across the city. Flowers they aren’t, especially the dueling, and somewhat misleading signs for and against issue 1A. Proponents: “Vote Yes — Jobs Now.” Opponents: “Fight Corporate Welfare!” Issue 1A asks voters to approve the continuance of a city property tax levy first instituted to repay bonds… Continue Reading Cutting through the 1A hyperbole
