The 5 Things You Need To Know Before You Go | January 9, 2013

Here are the five things you need to know before you go this morning!

5) Parents listen up–there’s a huge recall on baby sleepers you need to know about. This is for the Fischer-Price newborn Rock ‘N Play infant sleepers because they could get moldy and cause kids to get sick. In fact the company’s has heard about 16 kids getting sick from this and 600 of the sleepers getting moldy.

4) Get all your receipts and paperwork ready because you can’t start filing your taxes as soon as January 30th. The IRS just announced that. It’s later this year because it had to fix some forms because of the so-called “Fiscal cliff.” The IRS hasn’t said if this will affect when you get your money.

3) If you’re still having problems getting through to the State’s unemployment system, you’re not alone. We’re still hearing about people having to wait for a long time to get in touch with Workforce Solutions. We asked the state about it yesterday. They say there is no problem with the new system. Also, Wells Fargo says it’s fixed a glitch it had with getting money into people’s bank accounts.

2) Flu season is here in New Mexico and here with a vengeance. In fact we’re one of the worst states in the country for the flu. Doctors say it’s still not too late to get a flu shot. If you get the flu you can get a prescription from you doctor to help it go away faster and take over the counter medicine to help you feel better.

1) Calm in Albuquerque but not the same down South where there could be snow. Here in Albuquerque though, it’ll be another warmer day! It’ll be sunny, with a high near 51 and a North wind 5 to 10 mph. Then tonight will be mostly clear, with a low around 24 and a Northeast wind around 5 mph.

    To whom it may concern,

    As “Journalist” I would think that the ability to reach a mass audience as the “fourth estate of government” requires you to investigate the other three branches of government. The current issue with the State’s unemployment office is a ploy by the executive branch to deflate the unemployment numbers for the state. By making it nearly impossible to reach the Workforce Solutions department, the state will be able to artificially increase the appearance of individuals working. The “fiscal cliff”, the new tax year, online system changes, and call center policy changes have worked to create a “perfect storm” of manufactured communication issues. When the state/DWS representatives say “the system is working as expected” this may be true but, insulting that the expected working results of the system will be to disenfranchise the unfortunate individuals who are out of work.
