Trainings for Energy Efficiency/Renewable Energy
Federal Funding Scheduled
Information on programs and application requirements to be explained
(February 9, 2011, Albuquerque, NM) USDA Rural Development State Director
Terry Brunner announced today that during the next few weeks, USDA Rural
Development will host free trainings on obtaining loan guarantees and grants
for renewable energy systems and energy efficiency improvement projects.
In making the announcement, Brunner said, “We’re hosting the trainings
because we believe that the State of New Mexico has an untapped source of
energy projects that can be successful under these programs.” Brunner
added, “We want to make sure that rural small businesses and agriculture
producers know how to apply for this financial support, which will make their
business more competitive and more energy efficient.”
The Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) offers financial help to
agricultural producers and rural small businesses (no residences) to purchase
and install renewable energy systems and make energy efficiency improvements.
Grant funds are also available for renewable energy feasibility studies.
Renewable energy systems include biofuels, wind, solar, geothermal,
hydrogen-based projects and anaerobic digesters. Energy efficiency projects
include changing out inefficient pumps, insulation, roofing, lighting, heating
and cooling systems, etc. for more efficient ones.
New Mexicans have been awarded funds to change out evaporative coolers to more
efficient ones at a lumber company in Santa Rosa, to install solar panels to
make electricity that runs irrigation pumps at a pecan farm in Roswell, and to
install solar panels at a storage unit business in Deming.
Each workshop covers the same information except for the application workshop
in Albuquerque, where staff will give step by step details on the REAP
The workshops will be in the following communities:

Perhaps the most infamous war crime case to come out of the Iraq war ended with almost a whimper. None of the Marines charged ended up facing serious punishment. Arun Rath looks at what the legal rulings mean for the soldiers on the ground and the civilians live among them.
As the United Nations, the Arab League and western nations fail to reach a plan for action to protect Syrian people being attacked by the army of President Bashar Al-Assad, Russian leaders say Syria is ready to negotiate with protesters. But protesters say they won't negotiate until Assad is gone — and they say they're paying the price in bodies.

In a Texas town of 1,100 people, the well has run dry. Now all the water needed for drinking, washing and bathing must be trucked in from other areas. But a new report has discovered that up until just weeks before the well went dry, the local water provider was selling off water up until the last weeks before the well ran out.
The Washington Post conducted a lengthy investigation, published on Tuesday, that found U.S. Congress members earmarking $300 million for projects that in some cases quite literally go right past their front door. And there's no transparency to the process.

Just back from Augustin Plains water grab hearing in front of the Office of the State Engineer(OSE). Augustin Plains Ranch (owned by an Italian billionaire) wants to appropriate more than 17 billion gallons annually near Datil, NM. NMELC represents 80+ Datil-area residents (many of whom were at the Socorro courthouse today) in their protest against the Ranch's application.
Last year, we asked the State Engineer to dismiss the application. Today, the OSE Hearing Officer heard oral arguments about whether or not the Ranch's application is legally acceptable under New Mexico's water law (we assert it is not.)
Some of today's arguments:
"A water rights application requires a specific use in a specific place. You can't check a box that says "Gosh, I'd like a lot of water so I can sell it some day."" - NMELC Attorney Bruce Frederick
"This application should never have been allowed to be filed. It has put people through a lot of heartburn and trouble. The State should have done its job and rejected it in the first place. The application should now be dismissed immediately." --Atty Sherry Tippett, for several ditch associations
"[The protestants'] concerns about place of use and not enough specificity in our application...are a little bit fanatical." -- John Draper, counsel for the Ranch
The Hearing Officer stated that he would write a recommendation on the case as soon as possible, and then send it to the State Engineer for a decision. If OSE does not dismiss the application, we will represent our clients in a hearing on the hydrological aspects of the case in the future.
A city-wide electrical power outage in Gallup, NM knocked KGLP off the air this morning (Tuesday, February 7, 2012, from around 7:45 a.m. until 9 a.m.) Soon we will be installing new UPS equipment to replace our aging gear...this will help prevent such loss of signal in the future, though we'll have to take the station off the air while we upgrade. We'll perform this maintenance late at night in order to be off the air at a more convenient time for listeners, and will advise as soon as we've scheduled the maintenance.
