  • County Assessor’s Office holding workshops for veteransCounty Assessor’s Office holding workshops for veterans

    ALBUQUERQE, N.M. (KRQE) – Many veterans in New Mexico may not know they’re eligible for a break on their property taxes. The Bernalillo County Assessor’s Office wants to get the word out that they’ve earned it, so they should take advantage of it. This is the first time the county assessor’s office and the New Mexico Department of Veterans’ Affairs are partnering up to provide assistance to veterans. They’re are holding a series of workshops at their office until May. There are two types of exemptions available. One of them is a service related exemption which gives veterans a $4,000 reduction in taxable value of property. This benefit is also available to widows who have not remarried. The other type of exemption is a 100 percent disabled exemption that relieves the veteran of all property taxes owed on their primary residence. County Assessor Tanya Giddings says in the past, veterans either didn’t know about these exemptions or the process was long and difficult. Now, they are hoping these workshops make it easier for veterans to get the exemptions that they’ve earned. “When we found out that maybe some veterans who have gone to our outreach say I don’t have this form, {we’d say} ‘okay, let’s send you over to Department of Veterans Affairs.’ By having someone on site we can just do this focus, have them apply, and then we can get them ready and prepared so once they do their form we can sign them up,” said Giddings. The next workshop will be at the Assessor’s Office on Thursday. Veterans need to bring their DD214 or they can get one at the workshops. Veterans are also encouraged to apply for this before April 30 in order to receive the exemption for the tax year 2018.

  • Report: Small number of people responsible for large share of arrestsReport: Small number of people responsible for large share of arrests

    ALBUQUERQUE, NM (KRQE) – Bernalillo County’s climbing crime rate is top of mind as lawmakers convene for the legislative session. “We don’t have enough cops, public defenders, court staff,” explained Rep. Daymon Ely of Rio Rancho. “And then on the flip side, when we put these people in jail, we don’t have enough corrections officers.” A new report put together for a Legislative Finance Committee meeting Monday shows a small group played a big part on the crime rate in the county from 2010 to 2016. About 4-percent of people who have been arrested account for 20-percent of all arrests made. Those 4,600 people each have 10 or more arrests under their belts. Another 28,000 people had anywhere from three to nine arrests over the past seven years. “We’re arresting a lot of people. Unfortunately, we’re arresting the same people over and over again,” Albuquerque Police Department Officer Simon Drobik has said. To put the impact into perspective, the number of violent and property crimes in the country’s 30 largest cities went down by 2-percent in 2016 while Albuquerque’s rate spiked by a whopping 26-percent, according to the report. “There’s a group that really is just running rampant and it’ll be hard to corral that because they are dragging the city of Albuquerque down,” said Rep. Jim Townsend, who represents Chaves, Eddy and Otero counties. Rep. Ely believes he has a solution that would require approximately $100 million a year from the severance tax permanent fund to pay for more police, prosecutors and to go toward behavioral health and substance abuse programs. “And then when these criminals get out, which they will – a lot of them have mental illness and a lot of them have substance abuse, and we do not have a system in place to address it because we’ve starved that system, and we have to rebuild it from scratch,” he said. If passed, that proposal would go on a statewide ballot for the voters to decide. ———— Send a Breaking News Tip Report an error or typo Learn about the KRQE apps

  • New Mexico Green chile’s increasing popularity, putting strain on local supplyNew Mexico Green chile’s increasing popularity, putting strain on local supply

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – New Mexico green chile is becoming so popular around the country, New Mexicans may have to resort to eating chile grown in other places. You can put it on pretty much anything. “Beans and chile or enchiladas or like Spanish rice you definitely want to have the green chile in there. It seems to add to the flavor,” said Adam Mora. People will also tell you the best place to get it is right here in New Mexico. “Green chile is unique to this area, it’s something you can’t get anywhere else,” said Richard Leung. New Mexicans are not the only ones craving it now. “There is a lot more demand on a national level. I think people can eat hotter food now,” said Carol Wight, New Mexico Restaurant Association CEO. Wight said the increasing national demand for New Mexico green chile is putting a strain on farmers and the local supply. “When we lived in Virginia we had what they called ‘New Mexican green chile’ in restaurants and it was still not the same so we had it shipped to us on dry ice,” Leung said. “But always it’s a seasonal crop so we have situations where there is less green chile or less chile available,” Wight said. Wight also said locals should not panic just yet, they will still be able to get their green chile, it just might not be New Mexico grown. “Sometimes we have to go to other markets for it,” Wight said. Wight said some restaurants are looking to states like Texas or Arizona to ensure they don’t run out. It is an effort that comes with a slight sacrifice. “If it’s not New Mexico grown it’s probably not as good,” Wight said. The restaurant association also said the state has worked hard to improve brand recognition for New Mexico green chile across the country, which has increased the demand. The acreage devoted to growing chile in the state has remained stagnant. ———— Send a Breaking News Tip Report an error or typo Learn about the KRQE apps

  • Website calls for New Mexicans to ‘fire’ judges during 2018 electionWebsite calls for New Mexicans to ‘fire’ judges during 2018 election

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A group of people are calling out the judges in New Mexico by creating a website highlighting judges’ decisions. They’re asking voters around the state to do some homework before they go to the polls in November. For many people in Albuquerque, electing a judge can be a blind process. “I really don’t know anything about judges so I usually don’t vote judges,” said Robert, an Albuquerque resident. “I find that tough in many ways. I pay attention as much as I can, but judges are not something someone pays attention much to when it comes to elections,” said Basil Swanson. That’s why a group of people created the website Clear the Bench New Mexico to focus on what they say are dangerous decisions by judges. “People get charged with serious crimes, and they get let out on their OR you know and I don’t think that’s right because those are the ones that are doing crimes,” said Robert. A spokesperson for the website says they are just a group of concerned citizens who want to remain anonymous in fear of judicial retaliation. They want New Mexicans to essentially, fire judges for letting repeat criminals off the hook. “These people are the ones that are doing the crimes. Why should they let them out? Not everybody is doing all the crimes,” said Robert. A few examples, Judge John Buddy Sanchez released Stephanie Crownover on her own recognizance after she was accused of child abuse when a baby died in her care. Then there’s Judge Charles Brown. The judge is being accused of releasing many criminals before trial. One of the most controversial, Justin Hansen. Police linked Hansen to the 2008 cold case beating of a 17-year-old Cibola High student. While many people are not familiar with who the judges are now, they are frustrated with what the judges have been doing. “It’s disheartening when you see these people get charged with crime after crime, they get picked up for probation violation, and then they get let out,” said Robert. KRQE News 13 reached out to the judges mentioned on the website for comment, but did not hear back since Monday is a holiday. ———— Send a Breaking News Tip Report an error or typo Learn about the KRQE apps

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – January is National Mentoring Month and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central New Mexico says they need big sisters more than ever. Officials say they’re trying to get out the message that “Mentored Girls Make Strong Women.” They say now is a crucial time to get that message out, especially with the female empowerment movement sweeping the nation. “Being a girl is very difficult. We all know that lately with the ‘Me Too’ movement and stuff going on. Girls face specific struggles and specific issues and mentors are people who have been there before and can really help guide them through those,” said Kristin Erickson, program director. Erickson says that there are about 600 women serving as mentors. While that may seem like a lot, she says those women are already matched up with little girls and that they need more women so they can get more girls into their program. Erickson says they are also lacking mentors for girls ages 12 to 15. She says that’s the age group where they see girls going through a lot of struggles both academically and socially. Erickson says they’re also seeing girls being referred less than boys. “People don’t think they need it or they’re a single mother who doesn’t see an absence in their life,” said Erickson. Officials say they need parents, teachers, or social workers to refer these girls to the program because they say young girls tend to hide their problems more than boys do. They are hoping to get 100 volunteers signed up.
