Time now for the five things you need to know before you go!
5) Get your tickets now and you could be a multi-millionaire come Sunday. The Powerball Jackpot is up to $216-million smackers or $132.8-million in cash before taxes. The drawing is on Sunday good luck!
4) Let’s hear it for the Lobos! Both the woman and men take on San Diego State today in Vegas. If they win, they’ll make it to the conference tournament championship games. Watch the guys tonight at 7 on the CBS Sports Network then check out Van Tate’s highlights later.
3) Should Albuquerque get a new Police Chief? That’s what the President of the City Council says should happen. The Albuquerque Journal is reporting Dan Lewis says Chief Ray Schultz’s reputation is tarnished while the Chief says he’s proud of the department.
2) All eyes on a courtroom in Albuquerque today because the jury now has the civil case of a cop who shot and killed an Iraq War Veteran three years ago. That jury will decide how much money the police department owes Kenneth Ellis’s family and a few other things. Detective Brett Lampiris-Tremba shot and killed Ellis back in 2010 when Ellis had a gun to his own head.
1) Break out the shorts and flip flops! Today will be sunny, with a high near 76, and a light west wind blowing 10 to 15 mph in the morning. Then tonight will be mostly clear, with a low around 48 and a west wind 10 to 15 mph becoming light and variable after midnight.
