5 Things You Need To Know Before You Go | October 29, 2012October 29th, 2012 at 6:35 am by Rebecca Valdez under 5 Things, Morning Show, News
Time for the five things you need to know before you go this morning!
5) Should a convicted sex offender be allowed to volunteer at a family-friendly event? That’s what some people are wondering this morning after William Stewart was at the New Mexico Tri-Con at the Santa Ana Star Center over the weekend. He was convicted of sexual assault back in 1993 and the organizers say they knew about Stewart’s past but don’t have a problem with it.
4) If you see smoke near Santa Fe this morning–don’t worry. That’s because forest rangers are doing a prescribed burn near Chaparral in the Santa Fe National Forest. It could last for a few days.
3) A big transformation in just a few hours construction should start to spruce up an old motel on Route 66. New Mexico AIDS Services is transforming the sleepy hollow motor court to a place where people with AIDS and HIV can live and get help. The project should be done next summer.
2) Shed those jackets later today. Today will be a nice and warm sunny day with a highs near 70 degrees. There will be a light northwest wind of 5 to 10 miles-per-hour. Then tonight it will be mostly clear, with a chilly low around 39 degrees and a northwest wind 5 to 10 miles-per-hour.
1) The East Coast is ready to get hammered by Hurricane Sandy and a monster winter storm. Tens of thousands of people have been evacuated, schools, and government offices are closed. Wall Street and the NYSE have even shut down. Thousands of flights are cancelled including all flights to and from the Albuquerque International Sunport to Baltimore and Washington Dulles.
