The 5 Things You Need To Know Before You Go | December 20, 2012December 20th, 2012 at 6:35 am by Rebecca Valdez under 5 Things, Morning Show, News
Here are the five things you need to know before you go this morning.
5) Miss USA is now the New Miss Universe! Twenty year old Olivia Culpo took home the crown last night becoming the first Miss USA to do it in 15 years.
4) Go Lobos! They’re still undefeated, ranked 16th in the country and now are the undisputed Rio Grande Rivalry Champs for the year. The guys beat the New Mexico State Aggies 68 to 63 last night. They’ll be back at The Pit Saturday afternoon taking on San Diego State.
3) Here’s a debate that’s been going on for while should New Mexico make it illegal to text and drive anywhere in the state. Legislators have tried to do that four times in the past but couldn’t agree on punishments they’ll try again in just a few weeks.
2) Here’s your chance to help the kids in Newtown, Connecticut where that horrific school shooting happened almost a week ago. The Clear Channel Communications here in Albuquerque are collecting teddy bears and stuffed animals for the kids. Go drop them off near I-25 and Jefferson by the big movie theater today and tomorrow before 10 in the morning.
1) Another very cold day today. It’ll be sunny, with a high only near 37 and a Northwest wind around 5 miles-per-hour. That’s a nice wind change from yesterday. Then tonight will remain mostly clear, with a low around 16 and a calm wind.
