tens of thousands of acres that are leased by his oil and gas buddies that have not been drilled. Why not just go to develop those already approved leases? Because Pearce and his oil pals are just plain greedy and want everything their own way. Oh, and they love those taxpayer subsidies they are getting which are now on the chopping block at the Obama White House.
State Auditor Hector Balderas is officially running for the US Senate. He will face off against Congressman Martin Heinrich. Balderas says he wants to take small town values to Washington. I think the problem is that they already have those small town values. They are constantly bickering. They don't like each other. They tell lies. I know how some small towns operate and it isn't pretty. At least in the cities there is plenty of room for finding a niche and friends that share your interests. Also, small towns are getting smaller every day. It is sad, but there is little reason to economically develop these areas where there is little workforce availability.
A case in point for how smaller towns aren't always inclusive can be seen in the school district approach in Clovis to gay students. Rather than let them have a gay/straight club on the campuses they are forcing all non academic clubs from meeting during school hours.
