Historical society promotes El Paso artist’s cultural impact throughout
Santa Fe, New Mexico --- On February 10, 2018, a proposed extension of the Tom Lea Trail passed a key legislative hurdle in Santa Fe. The New Mexico Senate unanimously voted in favor of SM 18, legislation instructing New Mexico’s cultural affairs and tourism departments to work with the Tom Lea Institute and Texas officials to officially continue the cultural trail from Texas into The Land of Enchantment.
"Tom Lea is part of Texas and New Mexico's shared cultural heritage and history," said state Senator Mary Kay Papen, who introduced this legislation in the statehouse. "It is an honor to help future generations learn about his work, the history of our region, and the contributions his work had on American art and history."

Clovis, NM – Attorney General Hector Balderas announced that yesterday the New Mexico Supreme Court agreed with the Office of the Attorney General and affirmed Noe Torres' convictions for the first-degree murder of 10-year-old Carlos Perez and the attempted murder of 17-year-old Ruben Perez. In September of 2005, Noe Torres and one of his co-conspirators, Edward Salas, drove to the Perez residence after Edward's brother had an altercation with Ruben Perez at their high school. Nine shots were fired into a bedroom window, from two to three feet away, killing Ruben's younger brother Carlos. Torres then absconded to Mexico where he remained for six years until he was arrested and brought to trial in New Mexico after the Office of the Attorney General successfully extradited him.
Washington, D.C. (February 9, 2018) Congressman Steve Pearce released the following statement after the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) announced its plans to list the Texas Hornshell Mussel as endangered under the Endangered Species Act:
“I am deeply concerned by this listing as it has the potential to cause harm to local communities, businesses, jobs, and could reduce state revenues from local energy production. I am troubled that the FWS decided to make this decision despite a serious lack of scientific information. The FWS does not know the status of Mussel populations in Mexico and failed to involve Mexico in recovery even though a significant portion of the Mussel’s habitat is found there.
