During the year since this devastating fire, the rumors have been rife about the cause - mainly focusing on the fact that the fire began on property owned or adjacent to that of the father-in-law of the town's acting fire chief.

The old saw about the "slow moving wheels of justice" seems to apply in this instance:

White Fire charges filed

By Harold Oakes hoakes@ruidosonews.com
Posted: 05/11/2012 12:25:35 PM MDT


Two teens have been charged with starting the White Fire in April 2011 and their parents may also be charged.


District Attorney Diana Martwick petitioned District Court for charges of negligent arson against Brantan Shaw, 16, and Konor R. Manita,13, Friday morning and asked the court to make their parents parties to the charges.
Martwick's petition said Shaw and Mantia ignited fireworks into the National Forest April 3, 2011 igniting the fire that burned over 10,000 acres, destroyed five homes, a business and several buildings.


Martwick's petition asks the court to include Shaw's parents, Glenda and Jeff Shaw of Ruidoso and Mantia's parents, Melinda Garcia of Ruidoso and Chuck Mantia of Milledgeville, Ga., parties to the crime.
The charge is a fourth degree felony.

Default Bicycling on streets and highways...

As a long-time bicycler, I've been interested in seeing dedicated bicycling lanes that give cyclists some margin of safety besides relying on drivers of motorized vehicles to respect their right to be on the road.

BUT THIS IS NOT IT!
(see attached photo).

PS...today (May 14) is "Bike to Work Day" - a great idea, but not for those who are rank novices when it comes to riding in traffic. Until and if there are ever bicycling trails that are totally isolated from heavy traffic, asking people to ride to work one day a year is just asking for trouble.

A follow-up post.

I think the Benedicitine way has become more important to me than ABQ itself! I have begun to investigate Colorado Springs as it has the large thriving Benet Hill Monastery. So I'm not going to come next month afterall.

But I'm sure this thread is helpful to those who want to visit.

I figure if my heart has been pulled to ABQ for so many years, I should really get there and see for myself if it IS my home, and then let what happens happen. So yup, I'm coming next month.

Come on out for a visit!

Even if you move to Colorado Springs, it is still kinda close to ABQ, they say it's a 6 hour drive, but it usually takes us 10 to 12 hours. Just gotta do a bit of sightseeing!
