Congratulations to the class of 2014 at the University of New Mexico School of Architecture + Planning! Our eldest son, Gavin Brown, received his undergraduate degree in architecture. He's standing in the middle front row (wearing a suit jacket, sans cap and gown). Also, "Happy Anniversary" to our state's flagship university, the University of New Mexico: 125 years strong!

Fantastic News!

Governor Susana Martinez telephoned a few minutes ago to inform me that Eddy County has been selected as one of several counties that will host a specially designated veterans' cemetery! More details will follow. A big thank you to everyone who wrote letters and testified in favor of this initiative. A special thanks goes out to Adon Rodriguez and the city of Carlsbad's cemetery committee for all of their dedication and hard work. We esteem and salute our veterans!
