In the Community

Last night- the city council passed new rules…that ban stores from using most plastic bags when you check out. And if you use paper bags…they’ll cost you at least 10 cents a piece. This does not apply to produce bags…or plastic bags from take-out restaurants. The vote passed 7 to 1 – councilor Ron Trujillo was the only no vote. The new rules start 6 months from now.

50 -years in the making, the newest stadium for Albuquerque Public School students is finally opening its doors for action. Tonight at six, a ribbon-cutting ceremony officially opens the new  seven -thousand seat community stadium on the west side. Following that, the inaugural kickoff is set for 7pm between Manzano and Volcano Vista. The $38-million dollar football stadium includes facilities for track and field, a  parking lot and even some road improvements. Approved by voters earlier this year and back in 2010, it was built in a pit specifically to keep light and noise from drifting into nearby neighborhoods. The stadium is at the north end of I-40, off 98-th street.
